EEP! Shocked  October is here and we're ready to see all of the crafty costumes in our annual contest!

Time to showcase all of those amazingly creative DIY Halloween costumes of this season.  Each year, we've had the pleasure of viewing absolutely spectacular handcrafted costumes.  And now we want to see yours!

Once the challenge is completed, we'll move all of the entries to the Halloween board, so they can be easily accessed for years to come, too!

Here are a few specifics for this challenge:
  • The costume you enter must have some handmade components.
  • It must be a costume you are making for this year (Halloween 2016 ONLY), and not photos of a costume from past years.
  • If you are making a costume for someone else, and not for yourself to wear, it's okay enter it, but just remember that you can only have one entry in this contest.
  • If you are making a set of costumes for multiple people that all go together via a common theme, you can enter them together as one entry.

Rules:

  • Enter costumes crafted for Halloween 2016 only.  Projects created before this timeframe will not be removed from the entry board, but they will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).
  • Post your craft during the period of Nov 1 - Nov 10 2016. No sooner.  No later.  On Nov 1, there will be a special folder created for entries.  We will reply with the folder/board link here on this thread.
  • Voting will happen from Nov 11 - Nov 18 2016.
  • The winner will be officially announced on our first business Monday of the next month -- in our December newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize package information.
  • If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project.

Prizes:

At the end, we'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner will get...

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and this Craftster prize (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):
Their choice of any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

Your mission this month is inspired by blupaisan's challenge idea!  This month, you must first BREAK SOMETHING and then... MAKE SOMETHING! Smiley  An upcycler's dream challenge!  Perhaps you'll smash a plate and make it into a work of art.  Maybe you'll disassemble and old bicycle and make it into a chair.  It's up to you!

You must break at least 50% of your original item.  You can use any methods and supplies of your choice to create your project, but your broken object must be the obvious star of the show.  

Rules:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Sep 5 2016 - Oct 10 2016) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).
  • Post your craft during the period of Oct 3 - Oct 10 2016. No sooner.  No later.  On Oct 3, there will be a special folder created for entries.  We will reply with the folder/board link here on this thread.
  • Voting will happen from Oct 11 - Oct 18 2016.
  • The winner will be officially announced on our first business Monday of the next month -- in our Nov newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize package information.

Your challenge this month is to visit the tutorials section and choose any one tutorial to craft! Kiss  In your entry post, you must link to your inspiration tutorial.  You can follow the tutorial down to every specific detail or you could even modify it to your needs.  Perhaps you'll put a whole new twist on it!  Just be sure your starting point, and your inspiration, is a tutorial from the tutorials section (AND you give credit to it!).

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (June 30 2016 - August 7 2016) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • On August 1 2016, there will be a special board created for entries.  Post your entry on that specified entry board during the period of August 1 to August 7 11:59:59 PDT 2016.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from August 8 - August 14 2016.
  • The winner will be officially announced on the first business Monday of the next month, in our September newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize package information.
  • Enter only ONE project.  Your entry can have multiple components to it.
  • If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.

10  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Latest News / 04/04/16 - SPAMMED! on: April 04, 2016 12:22:00 PM

Did you get SPAMMED on Friday?   It was our favorite day of the year here on Craftster.  It was April Fools' Day! Smiley

We had a fresh batch of meaty logos featuring vintage SPAM ads.




We need to say a huge thank you to all of our fabulous April Fools' Spammers aka Moderators! Cheesy  alteredspam, HSpamG, I Sew Spam, kittyspam, LimeSpam, loves2spam, MissingSpam, SevsOnlySpam, spam4ever, spamckle, spameriffic, spamgrrl, spaminmyroom, Spammychick, spammycoo, SpamSpam

They worked super hard on their yummy projects, too!

Don't throw that SPAM can away! I can make a Purse out of that! by alwaysinmyroom
And how about a SPAMalong!?

Even our avatars were spammed!


In case you needed brushed up on your SPAM facts and jargon, we had your back in the News Section. Grin

Random Tip: Use a napkin.
Random Tip: Keep cool.  Just open a can of SPAM!
Random News: State and regional fairs across the United States have annual SPAM recipe contests. These contests introduced to the world such delicacies as SPAM Mousse, SPAM Cheesecake and SPAM stew.
Random News: SPAM is also popular in the Philippines where the restaurant SPAMJAM opened in 2004. The menu features SPAM-based delicacies like SPAM burgers, SPAM spaghetti, and SPAM nuggets.
Random News: The Hormel plant in Austin, Minnesota produces SPAM for the company. It is also the home of the SPAM museum.
Random News: Spam them with love.
Random News: A lot of meat, but not a lot of money.

Posts got slammed with SPAM, too! Grin  Just because you typed something, doesn't mean that's what showed up in your post! For example, if you typed April 1st it posted as, meat gelatin.  Or if you typed, Thats awesome! it posted as, Thats sludge in a can!

Look what some of the word changes did to the poor swap board!  Personal porks?  Moist salty pork discussion?  Monster pork? Cheesy


Here's a list of the other words that were switched. Did you catch them all throughout the day?

Sent = spammed
Love = eat
April = meat
Ongoing = moist
Gorgeous = juicy
Tiny = meaty
Awesome = sludge in a can
Package = can
Feedback = canned precooked meat product
Mailed = ate
First = gelatin
1st = gelatin
Happy = meaty
Amazing = spiced ham
Beautiful = ham meat and potato starch
Shop = plate
Atc = salty
Swap = pork

Oh, the craziness it caused in posts. Cheesy

Oh I eat that butterfly, it's ham meat and potato starch!
All your work is ham meat and potato starch, Belladune! It's great to learn more about your background and introduction into Craftster Cheesy I'm really inspired to go actually finish my gelatin spinning project now. Your yarn is juicy!
sludge in a can! I eat this. I may have to borrow your idea.
Wow, this is spiced ham!
ham meat and potato starch!!!
The jackalope hoopla is ham meat and potato starch. I eat all the detail.

This looks like an interesting swap! Wink

gelatin of all.....
This is a LONG pork. This cannot be your gelatin Craftster pork; no exceptions. Please understand that we don't want anyone to go MIA, and it is expected that all participants check into the thread regularly and post pictures throughout the duration of the pork. (We will help out by periodically posting questions and/or photo challenges to keep the thread moving if needed!)
We reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have pork canned precooked meat product that shows a history of incomplete porks, late sending, ill-communication, lack of tracking #'s, etc., we may refuse you. We want this to be a flake-free pork!
*Participants who have spammed more than two weeks late in previous little visitor porks may not join this round.

The word change spammed its way right into our signatures, too:

roler: Feel free to PM me about personal porks!
aisy: I would absolutely eat to have a personal pork! I'm interested in jewelry, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest
ChameleonHound: Whatever happened to the moist hoopla porks?

Thanks for another wonderful April Fools' Day, everyone! Kiss  Hope you had fun with it!
