It is time to announce the Iron Queen contest winner!
First off, I want to say thank you to everyone who participated. I honestly did not expect the amount of entries I received, and some of them are so mind-bogglingly good!
I wish I could choose them all! Everyone did such a fantastic job; trust me when I say it was HARD choosing just three winners. But I've narrowed it down, I believe, to my favorites.
First and second prize winners:
I chose this entry because I really feel it captures the drama between Ash and Meghan, their struggles, their determination, and their love for each other. Plus I think the song is perfect.
Second prize winner: The Princess and the Servant. (Find the entry on Fanfiction.net)
I chose this entry because it made me laugh, it was well written, and I felt it really captured the spirit of Puck, who is, even I will admit, hard to understand at the best of times. To get into his head like that, I applaud anyone who can pull it off.
And now, the Grand Prize winner. (Drum roll, please):
How awesome is this?!? Its not just the detail and the craftsmanship (Which is amazing), but you really have to go to her Facebook albulm to get the entire experience. It had me rolling on the floor, laughing. Well done, really well done!
Thanks again to everyone who entered. I really, truly, had a very hard time choosing just three winners. Every one of them was amazing, and you all should be very proud of your talents! Winners, I will be emailing you shortly for your addresses; if you did not include your email in the comments, please do so now.
CONGRATULATIONS to everyone! Maybe we'll do this again sometime. :)
Congrats to the winners! I LOVE the dolls!!! So awesome!!!!!ReplyDelete

I'll answer your email first thing in the morning
And congratulations to the other winners!
Congrats to the winners! They're great entries!!ReplyDelete
I wasn't able to make my entry but hopefully if there is another contest some time I'll be able to. Although if there are entries like this I don't know if I'd have a chance lol.
And again I have to say it's great getting to see Taylor combined with The Iron Fey ^^
Wow that trailer is impressive.ReplyDelete
All the entries are awesome... the dolls are really, really cute! I LOVE the video!! (Glad Ben Barnes made it in there... b/c he is MY Ash!)... but even though there were different Ash's... the maker of the video captured the gist of the story and the sweetness between Meghan & Ash. And Taylor Swift *could* make a good Meghan... can she act?? ;) Congrats to the winners!ReplyDelete
I love all of this so much and the video is amazing and the captions on the dolls made me laugh so hard. The writing piece was also hilarious so much talent here!ReplyDelete
What's the name of that song? Who sings it? I really like it! Even though the first time the weird background vocals came on I was immediately reminded of The Lion King lol
Woot. Congrats to the winners! Oh my Gods the dolls are brilliant! XD Bows to the amazing handy work.ReplyDelete
Congrats to the winners! Does anyone know the name of the song in the video???ReplyDelete

Wahhhh! I can't see the crochet doll pictures on facebook because I am one in the percentage of people left on planet earth without a facebook account. From what I've read I'm missing out...big time. SO if anyone wants to be nice to a girl here in CA, would it be possible for the pictures to be posted somewhere public on the web?
Oh, and hey Julie, how in the world did you choose??? They're all so GOOD!
if you guys don't have facebook, and if the person who made the doll's would let me, I'll post it on my blog?ReplyDelete
Hi Julie! It's Kaylee & Melinda here :)ReplyDelete
We're so sorry to bother you again, but we just haven't received an email from you regarding addresses and were wondering if you even sent it yet? Or maybe it's just our email account...? We're not sure, but is it okay to ask if you could resend it? We're sorry if it's only us but we're just super duper eager to read the Iron Queen!
Thanks so much! :)
That'd be awesome.
They are all awesome. I love all of these.ReplyDelete

Thanks for the offer but I did post the dolls pictures at my flickr page.

I think I already posted a comment regarding this matter here. Somehow my comment was gone.
Thanks for that update.
You're really good at crocheting.Is it just a hobby of yours?
I loved how you added all those details and how you made the clothes. Really awesome and artistic.
