Random Contest Winners!
Every week or so we have a new Random Contest. The rules and events vary from competition to competition. Below are the winners from the last contest. If you'd like to enter the current contest, wander on over to the Random Contest submission form and have a look at what the currently silly task is. If you think you're up for it, give it a shot and submit your entry.
Time to Paint Some Neggs!
Well actually... painting neggs is so boring... there has to be something more interesting to do! Ah... inspiration strikes! Your task for the next couple of weeks will be to create neggs out of trash. Take your used bottles, bags, containers, etc and use them to fashion yourself a pretty negg. You can fashion your negg after one on the site or create a new pattern, but the negg should be completely made by you, with help from an adult if needed. Please tell us what you used to make your negg and why you made the one you did in the description. We will judge entries based on resourcefulness, creativity, and how awesome they are. :)
Eight winners receive the Random Contest avatar, 10,000 NP and an item of DOOM.
Sunflower Pattern Easter Negg
I used a brown plastic bag, an empty popcorn bag, an old water balloon, an old, painted-on tablecloth, glue, scissors, and a lot of love to make this beautiful Sunflower Pattern Easter Negg!
Hollow Flower Negg
My negg is made out of a styrofoam cup, a plastic straw, and tinsel, held together with hot glue. It looked boring plain white, so I painted a spring-y pattern on it, and filled it with more tinsel and a chocolate rabbit.
Trash Scarab Negg
This is a Scarab Negg made entirely out of trash. First I cut the tops off of two soft drinks bottles and taped them together to create a base negg shape. Then I cut the red markings from a large crisp packet and the blue markings are made from old grocery bags. Everything was taped firmly into place which also succeeded in giving the negg a shiny overall appearance. The base of the legs were made from used drinks straws and the legs themselves were grocery bags again. Finally the leaves and stalk were made from a chocolate wrapper with a nice green colour. All together the Scarab Negg took me around three hours to make and I still can't believe it's made entirely out of trash!
Plastic Bag Negg
This yellow negg is made of 100% plastic grocery bags! To make this negg, I made "bag yarn" by cutting dozens of plastic bags into loops and stringing them together. Then I crocheted "bag yarn" into a negg shape! It was a very time-consuming process, but it's worth it to know that these bags have been recycled into a negg-form instead of sitting in a landfill :)
Negg-tastic Easter Basket
Supplies: An old lightbulb, 2 old ear plugs, Pieces of an old carpet, candy wrappers, toilet paper tubes, 2 soda bottles, a bolt (?), a piece of wire, acrylic paint, tape, hot glue, and a permanent marker. Plus a basket, cloth and grass to make it Easter-y. :) These three neggs were my favorites in Neopia. The Ferocious Negg is probably my most favorite, and was the most fun to make. I also added a few regular orange neggs to help fill the basket.
Recycled Mosaic Negg
Inside there is foam wall insulator my neighbor was throwing out as well as egg carton for the shape. Then I applied a layer of clay and added the mosaic parts, made from leftover fabric, magazines and cans and anything else I could find.
With all that treasure lying around, you just know the snowager has to recycle ;) I love the snowager so I made the negg out of recycled plastic and tin foil. Snowager is made from cut up plastic water bottles, and recycled magazines. Every part of this Negg is recycled!
The Weaver Negg
The idea came from my brother, who was drinking a can of fizzy drinks. That's when inspiration strikes. I thought there wasn't a negg weaved from any materials in neopia, so why not create one from an aluminum can? I just thought that it might be fun and special, so I made it. C:
Twelve lucky people have 5,000 NP, the Random Contest avatar and an item whizzing their way.
Melted Chocolate Negg
I made a melted chocolate negg out of a frozen pizza box, a chips container, and it is held together by glue. I decided to make a melted chocolate negg because it is unseasonably warm where I live, so any poor chocolate caught outside will probably end up like this :(
Ferocious Neggs are on the loose!
Fyora Neggs have had enough of the attention - time to show some love to the underappreciated Ferocious Negg! Don't be fooled - under that mean exterior is a heart of gold - and the ability to keep away your enemies ;) I chose to make a Ferocious Negg as the other carrier bags we had around were white and pretty dull - plus getting the teeth and leaves right was a fun test of my creativity :) Enjoy!
Recycled Meerca negg
I used the water+glue+towel paper to make some kind of "skin" for the negg, in order to paint it well, I cutted the top and the bottom of the plastic bottle to make the "body" of the negg, one page of newspaper to make the tail flexible, put everything together with Durex tape, painted it all in two shades of yellow and some tall grass on the top of the negg. The ears were also made using two little pieces of plastic from the bottle. I decided to make this negg because.. well, this is one of the most adorable neggs EVER (for me) and it has a tail, can you tell me how many other neggs in Neopia have a tail?! (and I got inspired by Daily Dare, since this negg was a prize from it)
Lemon Slice Negg
From the remains of a cardboard soda box built around a tape dispenser
My Birthday Negg!
I made the Birthday Negg because my birthday is on April 20th, so I thought it suited the occasion perfectly! :D The body of the Negg was made from a Plastic 2L Soda Bottle, which was cut in half and then stuck together. I then used a Paper Coffee Cup and made it into a cone, so it looked like the birthday hat! ^_^ Then I used old felt I had laying around for the body and the bow, and painted the party hat with paint. Oh, and the little things sticking at the top is blue tape. B) ENJOY!
That '70's Negg!
I thought it would be fun to make my own patterned easter negg similar to the ones we have been collecting for Kari. She has most of the easier patterns covered, but what about something a bit more psychedelic? I wanted to create a psychedelic negg, but what I ended up with screamed seventies instead. :) To make the negg I cut and taped the top of a water bottle into the correct shape and then covered it in one giant foil candy wrapper from a chocolate orange. The shapes covering the negg were all made from candy wrappers left over from Easter and attached with double sided tape. It took about two hours to create this very shiny negg.
Love Nature - bring happiness!
I used package of eggs (carton), pigments, glue, tissue papper and wodden stick. Mr Rabbit introduces you to the new negg! Nature love! Mixed with the Happy negg his efect gets better!
I made a small hole on an egg using a needle, and release the content inside (so they can be cooked and not wasted; and this is the third egg I used). I found a used blue envelope, and I tore them into pieces and carefully covered the egg shell without breaking it. I chose Fish Negg because of its unique status on the site. For me, it is more than a symbol, especially when I love meercas and the game Meerca Chase, in which it is the highest point negg.
Recycled Cupid Negg
You will fall in love with this cupid negg at first sight! It was made using a blown up water balloon that was covered in paper mache using old magazines I cut up. I then used a plastic chip bag to create the negg's stem along with a chopstick and paper for the arrow shooting through it. This negg is not only cute, it is eco-friendly!
This Glass Negg is in fact made out of plastic! I used an old cherry pie container and hot glue. Mmm, cherry pie! I chose the Glass Negg as I was eating the last slice of pie. I thought it would be perfect! Also, I love shiny things. :)
What: Inspired by the steel negg, I have made a tin negg!
How: Strips cut out of empty tin cans were folded around a negg-shape I cut out of a piece of styrofoam. Smaller strips were added to seal all holes. The stalk was made by sticking one of the hard tops of a tin can into the styrofoam, and folding small strips around it. No glue was needed as I folded the ends of the largest strips together to make rings. This negg is 100% recycled trash that I had no other use for.
Why: I always put my tin cans in a seperate bag for recycling, so I had a lot of them, and I decided to make a metal negg. I found the steel negg, and decided to try and make that! However, when I was done, it didn't look like a steel negg, so I decided to call it a tin negg instead. ;)
The Amour of Armour
Tin foil, I love it! And being a fan of coffee to-go, I have a foot tall stack of cardboard cup holders - in combination this becomes a huge, shimmering armoured negg of well protected yumminess. (You may or may not need grarrl dentures after attempting to eat it!) A bigger, clearer version of this collage pic and more step-by-step instructions can be found on Mira_bell's pet-page!
