Spooky Times are over...But Winner Announcement Time is here!!
THE MOST SPOOKTACULAR OF ALL, OUR GRAND PRIZE WINNER, CHOSEN FROM ALL ENTRIES IN ALL THREE CONTESTS, IS:
duelit's Orochimaru from Naruto. The carving is gorgeous, but the pumpkin-seed snake tongue clinched it for creative concept and execution and really building out the cosplay.
(I promise it wasn't because he wrote his name on Crunchyroll-Hime notepaper )
duelit wins first pick of one of the four figures shown in the original contest announcement, plus a 90-day All-Access Membership.
FIRST PLACE WINNERS
(Each first place winner wins one of the four figures shown in the original contest announcement--to be determined based on preference and random drawing if needed--plus a 60-day Anime Membership.)
COSPLAYING PUMPKINS: Krissim captured us with the adorable Kero from Cardcaptor Sakura. Krissim drew and colored all the pieces used to make the body, and placed him in a festive setting.
HORRIFYING HAIKUS: Tsunatsu38 made it hard to sleep! I kept waking up, looking around, and wondering, "is that really just a shadow?" We all loved how well this ghost story was conveyed in so few words. We could picture it! (even without the provided illustration!)
They tell me she’s dead,
But what is that silhouette,
Lurking by my bed.
SPOOKY BADGES This badge from ThePinkRanger brings back the ghost of Crunchyroll past with an unsettling creepiness suitable for undead logos. The background modifications are subtle but effective.(Is that a blood splotch? You might never want to eat sushi again.)
SECOND PLACE WINNERS
Each Second place winner gets a 90-day Anime Membership
Ichibanx3: Princess Tutu.
This won us over with cuteness and the use of varied materials in the costume.
I love the surreal twist on CR's logo, and the shading effects that give it 3Dish appearance.
"But gosh! There are a lot of good ones!" said one of my judges. So true! It was so true that we simply couldn't narrow it down to a standard 1st, 2nd, 3rd place, so here we have some special category winners.
These Haiku winners get entered in a drawing where they will win one of the following: 90-day Anime membership (1 available); 60-day Anime membership (3 available); 30-day Anime membership (6 available)
Category: CR-separation anxiety
Crunchyroll is down.
The servers are not working.
Mom said "Go outside."
Category: Trick or Treat
Black cat stalks, wind moans
rustling the dried leaves, footfalls
a knock, trick of treat.
Why is it so expensive?
I must improvise.
Category: Halloweeny things
Jack's left a fire on
See it dance behind his grin
Don't let him eat you
A boy with bad fate.
Pink worms crawl out of his face.
Limbs smothered for lunch.
Category: Reference to specific anime (In this case Tokyo Ghoul)
Temptation to bite
Scent of blood sinfully sweet
Coffee my refuge
With a vague Halloween theme
I'd like prizes please
Enveloped by night
An exchange for just a taste
A Waltz with Witches
Zombies leave the grave.
Reuse old bodies for harm.
The dead recycle
Category: Couldn't get this out of our heads
The Kids are laughing
Normally it is okay
But I live alone
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL
It appears some found the Cosplay Pumpkin contest a little intimidating, but I'm glad a few of you met the challenge! I was so happy when these entries started coming in. They were all so much fun and every single one of you deserves an honorable mention.
If you submitted an eligible entry to the Cosplay Pumpkin contest and did not win another prize, you will receive a 30-day Anime Membership.
