custom contest rundown
Can anyone post a rundown of the custom kitbash contest?
There are some great pics floating around. It would be nice to put some names with the creations.
Looks like CAW gave some of their CAteam out as prizes for the contest?
I can't do it from memory, but when Tom has pics available I can post who did what. Competition was tough this year
Here are some photos and some of my knowledge, help me fill in the blanks people.
I saw Derek making the Spirit.
Amy did the Black Dynamite and Pam Grier (which ruled) Charlie did Pimpin' Lizard.
Here is Dave holding Chris's winning "Cyborg Pirate"
We're missing a couple from this set of shots. Jim's Scarecrow is gone, as is a custom made by one of the daughters in attendance. I believe the guy with the Storm head was done by noelani jr. We need an 'awesome pose' category for next year thanks to Del. Also not pictured is Art's Jonah Hex. It also placed along with Charlie and Ron's Lizard.
"Uncle Jason" - non-board member did the Demon. Spamm did Elijah Snow from Planetary. Brue's daughter made Frozone's Wife.
I think kid's of board members did the Frankenstein Indy and Challengers of the Unknown, but I don't want to mix them up.
Huge props to Cast-A-Way for not only starting this tradition, but setting up a customizing table with supplies for folks to gather around and chat while they were making their customs. I found it a great opportunity to socialize with a small group and get to know the other's huddled around the table.
I think the kids really had a good time making their customs as well. As a suggestion, how about a separate category and prizes for 12 and under next year?

I knew I was missing some, by the time the contest was beginning, there was a small crowd around the items and I couldn't get in there. Here is Art's terrific Jonah.
