I wanted to wait for Mod-approval of this but I can't contain my excitement.

Mods, if you have a problem with this just delete it or let me know about any changes that need to be made.

Ok guys, old man winter is upon us and this means SNOW!

It keeps us from driving, walking easily and even leaving our homes sometimes. It covers everything in sight.

So, what can we do besides sitting indoors, wanking and playing guitar?

We can BUILD WITH IT!



That’s right – a snow-sculpting contest, right here on UG!

RULES:

1. Objects OTHER THAN SNOW are NOW PERMITTED.

2. You must build it yourself. No using someone else’s or getting a pic from google. This rule should be obvious.

That’s pretty much it.

All contestants should let me know when they’ve entered via this thread and their name will be updated into the OP. Please, only serious applicants.

The judging of the contest will take place on January 31st to allow everyone to submit their entries in time. The winners will be announced the following day, 24 hours after the polls open for judging.

May the best sculptor win. Be creative guys!

Contestants:

1. Dudetheman
2. Jackal58
3. AverageGoe
4. Creamcheeze
5.ColdNovembeRain
6.mattman93

EDIT: when a contestant posts their pic, there should be a clear and readable sign that indicates it was built by the user in the picture.

Welcome to Florida




What's that? You want to make a snowman? What the hell is snow? Is that some sort of slang you kids use these days? Get off of my beach.

Make it snow in the middle of summer in a place in Australia that's not a mountain and I'd gladly take part.

It's supposed to snow atleast a foot here by tomorrow night, and were already about 2-3 inches in. I'd join in but I'm going to be spending all of my time sledding and snowball fighting. Also, I suck at making sculptures.
If it were socially acceptable, I would drape myself in velvet.

We get hardly any snow here. Is it feasible to make a sculpture out of our own poo?

FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


its a miniature verison of earth made entirely of snow!!!!

how completely uncreative! get outside and build something worthy
I'm worried about the condition of the snow here... it's not very pack-y since it's sooo cold, it's more just like loose powder... I'm still going to attempt a snowman though.

Question - am I allowed to use sticks for arms? Pweeease?!

I was thinking about the all-snow rule and decided to change it.
