Design a Business Card for Dory
year we do a Halloween contest. The challenge this year was to
design a funky business card for Dory--or for one of the other
regulars, or for the Cassie Palmer characters, or for businesses
or Cassie might find in their world. To help
get the creative juices
flowing, we put together a little "story" in photo form here. Not that anybody needed it, because creativity is clearly not a problem with this group.
fact, the entries were so good, that choosing just three winners was
impossible. So we doubled it. And we could have tripled or quadrupled
it because there were just that many really good ideas this year. It
looks like the Dory/Cassie universe not only attracts the smartest
fans, but the most creative, too (and the best looking, we're sure).
So without further ado, the winners, in no particular order:
submitted some of our favorite cards. In fact, if she hadn't won for
this one, she'd have probably won for the Three D's (see the card in
the entries below, because seriously, it's awesome) or the amazing
blunt stake card for Dory. Beautiful and creative--what's not to love?
It wins in the "Damn, I wish I'd thought of that!" category.|
only submitted one card, which was okay since one was all she needed.
Anybody who makes us laugh this hard gets an automatic pass. Plus
"hairyteddy" would have done it, anyway. Wins under the "Blunt
Honesty" category, despite making us convert this over from Powerpoint
(which is a bitch, because we do not know what we are doing. No, we do
not.) Thanks a lot, Zeena.|
sent in great cards for everything from Claire's medicaments to
Louis-Cesare's fencing academy to Mircea's pedicure salon. But this was
the one that won it, under the category of "Most Believable." We
can completely and utterly see Pritkin carrying this. The Silver Circle
emblem was a nice touch, too. |
blew us away with a perfect card for Marsden. S/he also sent in a great
Leo's bar card that would have won in the "Most Obscure Reference"
category if we'd had unlimited categories. Instead, s/he gets the nod for
taking on the Circle's craziest mage (and that's saying something).|
|Zsuzsa M. wins in the "Holy Shit, We Can't Believe You Made That!" category. And we do mean made. As in, by hand.
Zsuzsa is clearly a bad ass who operates under the "Photoshop? We don't
need no steenking Photoshop" concept. Color us impressed, especially since she sent in a LOT of these home-made babies
(check 'em out in the entries below). Show 'em how it's done old school, Zsuzsa!|
wins in the WTF category, because seriously? WTF? Sophie, we assume you
were drunk when you did this, because if not, you might be battier
than Dorina. Of course, that's also why you won. Dory is literally
bat-sh*t insane half the time, and so is this card. So it fits her
perfectly! Bravo! Now, go get some help.|
So what did they get?
winners will receive $50.00 Barnes and Noble gift
cards, some truly decadent Halloween
goodies and a signed copy of Fury's Kiss. You know, if they remember to SEND IN THEIR ADDRESSES.
Yes, we know some of you have sent them in before. No, we don't keep
stuff like that. What? Do we look organized to you? So send
'em in or we'll eat your goodies and spend your money and laugh at you
while we do it. Don't think we won't.
Anyway, we also have gorgeous vampire buttons to give out as thank yous
for everyone who sent in an entry. They're great little accessories
for this time of year, so claim yours before they're gone. And have a great Halloween!
