This thing has become HUGE! I had no idea. Since I have my normal work to get to I want to write all rules here. Then I am going to start emailing you with your category. Tomorrow is the deadline to sign up and then it is CLOSED. We are pushing 180 people now and wow. When am I gonna work?
Once you have your assignment you have about a month to create your work. You are totally allowed to blog about it, flickr it, facebook it or whatever.
Plush is anything stuffed or cuddly. So you can sew it, felt it, crochet it or knit it.
Your interpretation on each category is up to you. If it's figure skating, you can make your critter skate, make a whole scene, or make an ice skate. It's up to you. If you get "made up sport" you are required to give us a little description of said sport.
We will be judging on your interpretation of the sport, craftmanship and creativity. There will be a gold medalist, silver medalist and bronze medalist chosen for each category. Oh and you will actually get a plushie medal! More on that later.
You have NO LATER than Feb. 26th to send me an email with your name, link to site or blog and a photo of your piece. Make sure that photo is good please and a good size to put up on this blog. Nothing huge, nothing small. Send photos to kristen(at)schmancytoys(dot)com.
DO NOT MAKE THE ACTUAL MASCOTS!
And most importantly here is to have fun. This is for fun. Don't be intimidated by the size or the judges or anything like that (i have heard this numerous times now). Please just have a good time doing this!
LET THE GAMES BEGIN!
