Halloween Winky Challenge!

Make a costume for Winky, the WC mascot

Tuesday, October 21, 2008 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize News

Halloween is just under two weeks away, and I thought we should have a little fun with it.  Last year, Zoomba posted a fun challenge for our members to create their own “versions” of Winky, the WinCustomize mascot. 

 

We saw some really cool and funny entries, but there wasn’t much done for a Halloween version.  With that being said, I thought we would have another challenge to create a Halloween themed Winky that I can use to post news and articles with.  This can be a great way to get those creative juices flowing if you are not participating in the 2008 GUI Champs.  You can simply take the image above and use that as your base, or design an entire new image.  Please note this is not replacing our mascot, it’s just a challenge to “dress him up” a bit for the holidays.  Images should be at least 128x128, and posted to the comment here only.

We will go until around Monday, so we can use them for news next week.  If we get a bunch of good ones, I will run a poll next week and the favorite will get a 1 year subscription/renewal to WinCustomize.

Someone with some graphical skill: Make him like Frankenstein. Put some cool stiches on him, maybe off-color some parts of him, like mixed flesh and/or other reptile parts. Put a bolt in his neck...That'd be cool. Maybe give him the tail of a snake or something...
