Bruce NH - page 4 - Classic Castle Contest 10
One year ago, I decided to stay away from the CCC for a few reasons. Contests are not really my thing and I was focusing on other projects within the hobby. Then I saw the result and a fire burned within me What's done is done, and after my fire cooled, I realized there was no point in giving it anymore thought. The fire cooled down and I went back to my other projects, mostly involving BrickForge. Then came November, and I felt the same as I had the year prior. "Contests are not really my thing". However, I was reminded about how the face of customizing had been changing in the past few years and there was a much more important message than a contest. So much excellence from 3rd party vendors (BrickForge being the undisputed top of the list) had been introduced to the masses, that the young guys and girls are forgetting exactly what the essence of a custom figure really is. Anyone can slap on a 3rd party item (and make an awesome looking minifig), or go through the motions and use one little alteration, but customizing excellence involves quite a bit of effort and work.
I give to you all ClaCasConeX. He is the bringer of doom. For those that enter before him know their fate is sealed, and those that enter after do so without hope.
This figure features:
Hand braided wire
2 types of clay (Sculpey & Fimo)
Glow in the Dark Gel
It uses no 3rd party vendor items.
