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.
Throw a Rug!
*CRASH!* Hmmm... maybe we shouldn't have gotten those floors waxed.
It seems that in order to keep people from slipping and sliding too much we need some rugs. So the task we have for you for the next couple weeks to to make (yes make) a Petpet themed throw rug! Do not purchase a rug and just paint it. It doesn't have to be one of your Petpets if you don't want, but it does need to be of a Petpet. When you submit your entry tell us what your rug is made of, and what petpet it depicts. We will judge your entries on beauty, Neopian accuracy, and imagination.
Three winners receive the Random Contest avatar, 15,000 NP and an item of DOOM.
Plushie Slorg Rug
I decided to make a Plushie Slorg for this contest because I love Slorgs. Of all of the Slorgs, the Plushie Slorg looked most like it would make a good rug. I then purchased a Rug Canvas and a LOT of yarn. I drew the outline of the Plushie Slorg on the canvas, and began to make pompoms, which I tied to the canvas. For the detail on the eyes, I made smaller pompoms (more like tassels, really) and tied those on the same way.
Plumpy Latch Hook Rug
My own "Plumpy" demanded a cozy rug to curl up on. What better than a latch-hooked yarn Plumpy rug? After mapping out the image and transferring it (by marker) to a blank latch hook canvas, I cut the yarn (in its respective colors) and row by row, a Plumpy took form*. My "Plumpy" is quite happy with the soft space to curl up on, especially one that so closely resembles his delightfully sarcastic expression.
*Bacon not included.
Faerie Tasu Latch-Hook Rug
This rug depicts my lutari's petpet, Freckles the faerie tasu! I used a small army of tiny bits of yarn, a latch-hook, the mesh base (about 18"x24"), and sharpies for sketching out the design onto the mesh. Each 2" string was knotted individually around part of the mesh using the latch-hook, (a very slow process) resulting in over 100 hours of work on this rug. Enjoy! :) PS, thanks for the extension, TNT!
Five lucky people have 10,000 NP, the Random Contest avatar and an item whizzing their way.
My rug is a babaa made out of yarn and love. I used some fabric to get the shape and an idea for how many pompoms I would need. I tied the yarn pompoms together to finish it.
Deep Pile Maraquan Rock Throw Rug
Since the only place I use throw rugs in my home is the bathroom, of course I had to make a Maraqua themed Throw Rug. I used the 80x80 picture of the Maraquan Rock turned into a pattern, strips of jute (as substitute for regular hessian backing, due to delivery time issues), streins of 50/50 yarn in dark green, green, dark grey, grey, white and coral cut to the desired length, scissors (obviously), a rug hook, a felt pen, an embroidery needle and underlay (very important for slippery floors ;)).
My colourful Patamoose rug is made from acrylic yarn woven onto a non-slip backing and pink fabric, edged with black yarn, and the details are painted with craft paints. It's kitty-sized, and I made it for my cat's house (every house needs a cute rug!)
Kookith Throw Rug
I made a Kookith-shaped throw rug from a cut out piece of rug canvas and three different colors of yarn (+ the help of scissors and some locker hooking tools). My cat just made a new best friend! :)
Too bad I couldn't find a fireplace to place this in front of. Made using minky fabric, felt, thread, stuffing, and hot glue.
(DISCLAIMER) NO MEOWCLOPS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS RUG!
Lastly there were 9 runners-up who will each receive 5,000 NP and the Random Contest avatar.
