zy6omat1c came up with a great idea in my last post:

most obnoxious
dread-style contest!

with six prizes to be awarded!

this contest is now CLOSED. the voting post can be found here, & the winners are here!

the rules:
  • anyone who has at least one current dreadlock is eligible. temporarily pinning in a chopped set & the like is not permitted.
  • one entry per community member.
  • style must be durable enough to decently withstand normal in-home activity. you don't have to be able to skydive with it, but something that slides off your head as soon as you move or falls apart in a few minutes doesn't count.
  • all styles must be real - no fancy photoshop work or dreads held aloft by strings off-camera. you need to be able to walk around/leave the building.
  • any sort of holding devices are allowed (pins, bands, clips, pipe cleaners, whatever) but should not be the basis/centerpiece of the style. this is about DREADS styled to be obnoxious, not about ridiculous accessories.
  • be original; don't just copy a style already submitted without sincerely making it your own.

    the entry:
  • photographic four-frame walk-around (front, right, back, left) must be provided at minimum. more shots are great, but we need to at least see the basics.
  • be sure to name your creation! eke out every bit of creativity & charisma for the community to best judge your effort.
  • votes will be tallied by a poll post running from january 8th-15th. all community members, including participants, get a vote for their favorite obnoxious style.
  • the first place winner gets first choice of all prizes; second place gets to pick from the remaining prizes; & so on. there are six prizes to give out!
  • last day to enter is december 31, 2010 january 7, 2011.

    the prizes:
    from missbell53,
  • any one missbell hat free! (excludes peaked items & cabled/lace designs)
    from knottysleeves,
  • 25% off any order!
    from nopoppersforme,
  • 20% off any order!
    & these from journalface,
  • 20% off any listed item or 10% off a custom item! (excludes dread extensions)
  • 10% off any listed item! (excludes dread extensions)
  • 5% off any listed item! (excludes dread extensions)

    that's it! comment to this post with your entry & maybe you'll pick up some infamy alongside a sweet discount on some community-made goods. :D
