COMPETITION - EDDIE THE EAGLE
« on: April 29, 2011, 11:52:56 AM »
Dear All,

I would like to run a competition for all members which actually has a prize!

I do a lot of work for Colchester United Football Club who have a team mascot called Eddie The Eagle. I am looking for someone to create the best Eddie balloon model that looks as much as possible like the actual mascot that I can use for an event later in the year. To win the prize all you need to do is to post a photo of your best design. The winner will then be selected by me and in order to claim your prize you must email me or post instructions on-line on how to make the balloon. I don't need detailed and professionally written instructions but enough to enable me to make it as well.

The first prize will be £50 credit to spend in Graham's store.
The second prize will be £15 credit
The third prize will be £10 credit

Please bear in mind I have the right NOT to pick a first prize if there are no decent entries or you all decide to make a single balloon parrot and draw eyes on it, althought their will be £15 and £10 prizes regardless.

I'm stumping up the cash for a useable balloon.... anyone up for the challenge??

This competition is in no way connected to Graham or this forum and I will accept full responsibility for it's running.

CLOSING DATE FOR ENTRIES - 11TH MAY 2011

Hi Tonya - would love for you to have a go... happy to extend the deadline if anyone would like some extra time. You are the first to respond so you may well be the winner by default!

LOL...I'm sure someone else will try it too.  They just haven't responded yet.

When do you need it by and how big?

Hi Tonya,

Ideally for late August/September. I am easy about sizing but something similar size to your clown would be good. I am sure I can adapt the final design to make it bigger or smaller.

Just a quickie...for those of us who may not know about the size of Tonya's clown :oops: , can you help out with the size needed? I know you've said you can adapt up or down but it would give me a better idea of what you are looking for.

That's a very good point. Although I would be happy to receive entries for any size model, I guess the most appropriate size would be around 14-16" (36-40cm) high.

Cheers

I may have a go at this....

But I don't the colours at the moment, but would I be able to make it in other colours, as you can always change to the right colours later...???

Hi Kenny

Colones are not important at this stage. I am more interested in the shape and design.

Good luck

Darren

Hope you are well, and I'm reporting back with my version of "Eddie the Eagle"

Here he is. I put a drink can in the picture to give you an idea of his size. He stands approx 26" tall

Hope you like him :D  :D

Here is my Eddie.

This can easily be done small or big. It also uses techniques which assure the same results every time.

Thanks for all your entries so far. Keep them coming. I am a little busy over the next few days but will be more regular on these boards by Sunday.

Cheers
