Weekend Contest: Celebrity Costume Party!
In lieu of the usual Caption Contest, this weekend the Saloon is hosting a Costume Party! Same prize, a one-week BlogAd, goes to the winner. Don't worry too much if your photo shopping skills aren't the greatest -- there will be one prize, The Crayola Trophy, for Raw Creativity, separate from the overall Grand Marshal's Prize.
Please do your own work; final pics hoarked from Fark, Worth1000.com, or elsewhere will be disqualified (unless you can prove you're the original artist). Even those without PhotoShop, Fireworks, GIMP, or PhotoFiltre (awesome free program) can still open a celeb's picture in a simple Paint program and work comedy magic! And it doesn't have to be comedic! If you can put Selma Hayek in a Princess Leia brass bikini, you might be the winner! Multiple entries are welcome and encouraged!
If you've got a blog, please post your picture there, link back to the Saloon, and post the URL in comments or Email it to me. Blogless readers can Email their pics to me and I'll post them. Use cowboyblob - at - yahoo - dot - com
Remember, my BlogAds can be for any legitimate business or cause of your choice! I can even host your favorite fishing pics if you're that proud of them. Entries are due before midnight MST Halloween. Don't let your computer turn into a pumpkin!
Entries will remain unlinked until after judging.
