T minus 30 days until the lights are due… just in time for Halloween!

I may not be around that day. To get some spellcrafting components I need, I may be out hunting small children under the hallowed blood moon. But I hope to see everyone’s shiny things the next day. Wink

I’m glad I’m a big kid and not a small child. Are you a small child CRX? If so I’d go into hiding for the next month or so. Silly

Oh, I’d like to join, but we are expecting our first child this week, so i don’t think i’ll be able to build something this year…
I do have an idea though, that shouldn’t be too complicated (in theory Big Smile )

I’m still in but out if that makes any sense.
I’m heading of on holidays and returning after the closing date so I guess l’m out of the comp but still in as I will finish the build.
All the best to the others here building lights and looking forward to reading about the final stages of the builds when l return.

I was told to go by my wife and kids. I keep getting this feeling that they just want to get rid of me.
My eighty year old father will have to put up with me as we tour around China’s tourist destinations for the next ten days. LOL

The competition ends in less than 2 hours!

Please finish your build threads in time and don’t change it after the time is up! Posting more comments to those threads is ok, but posts with timestamp later than the end time will not be taken into account.

Judges will start their work right after the competition time ends. Judging will take at least 1-2 weeks, so please be patient and enjoy the build threads meanwhile!

I don’t know the details of the contest results, but the gist should be clear to anyone who read the entry threads.

Spoiler alert for anyone who didn’t read the threads: Y’all are awesome.

Also, Snape killed Dumbledore.

OK so tell us the winners! already.

And how about letting the forum folks vote on the winners. might be easier to judge and we the people will feel more like were part of it (assuming we did not build anything).

Or are we just not part of the privileged Illuminati? Wink

Woot! Congrats everyone, and thanks judges! Glad you are alright the. I placed my vote in people’s choice, and as tempting as it was to vote for myself, I just can’t ignore the beauty FmC made so he got my vote.
