    Default Iron Avatarist -- The 80s

    Welcome to...
    [glow=red,2,300]Iron Avatarist[/glow]


    I'd like to introduce you to our judges...
    {table][tr][td][/td][td][/td][td][/td][td][/td][td][/td][/tr][tr][td]Sneak[/td][td]Roland St Jude[/td][td]Tin Soldier[/td][td]The Vorpal Tribble[/td][td]Hawkeye[/td][/tr][/table]

    Today's theme is the 80s.

    You may also have characters from OotS cosplay (dress up) as 80s characters/singers/actors.

    And of course, there is going to be a First through Third place of the following:

    Best Character
    Best Singer
    Best OotS Character
    Best OotS 80s Band

    and Best Overall

    And don't forget the Wukei's Choice Award to the avatarist's creation that most appeals to your host.

    Every entry must include a bolded introduction as to what category you are trying to enter in.
    Also mention who you've done, and from what show/band if applicable.

    IE (I'll just keep my pirate up here)
    Best Miscellaneous Pirate


    Only the avatarist who created the avatar may submit it.
    However, you may submit old creations. It does not have to be something made specifically for this thread.

    All entries must be completed by Monday, July 7th, at 12 am EST. That is Sunday evening, Monday morning at midnight.

    (Judges subject to change depending on if they wish to participate as well.)

    Let me just say that I am extremely excited about this one!

    At the risk of making this all about me, I would be happy to supply ideas for anyone out there who doesn't know the 80s pop culture as well as they should some of us oldsters I do.

    If we're dressing the OotS characters, do they have to be specific characters or just '80's themed?

    Just 80 themed. The band thing is obviously an exception to that rule.

    you should make it best 80s group rather than 80s band....then, not only could you enter say...a band...but also say....the cast of saved by the bell! :D Cause that's what I want to make now and have no idea what category that would fall under....

    It's President Reagan... because I was in a weird mood, and 80s pop culture was the scary time that gave us Michael Jackson and Madonna.

    A thought occured to me... If two of the Star Wars movies came out in the 80's... I don't have to learn a new pop culture! Yay! Lightsabers for everyone! ;D

    apparently VH1 is having an 80s day today. I may be mistaken, I only saw a commercial that said "today"...but it may help with picking out some bands...

    Thanks Verily to Abd al-Azrad for the idea. I completely forgot about Thriller.


    Edit: Moved a few things to make Thog's right arm look a bit less 'unhinged'. Ctrl+F5 if it looks a bit funky.

    Ummmm, as you posted on the 1st of August, I'm guessing that date's from a previous contest? If so, what's the actual date? And if not...wow...this is a loooong contest.
