Last week's challenge produced only the second time in Kotaku 'Shop Contest history that one artist got two submissions featured in the final gallery. Who scored this rare double eagle? See inside!
Asked to exploit this image of an
Altaïr Ezio cosplayer at PAX East, the community responded in force. We had far more than just swapping out what was on his monitor, though there were plenty of hilarious submissions to that effect, too.
ARYXANDRE (3) built a worthy tribute to everyone's favorite bully-smashing Aussie; Boopadoo (5) and Jimmy_Jazz did do the same thing but, sorry Jimmy - you're a multiple roundup honoree, and while Boopadoo is too, his was a little bit better.
Clumsyninja (7) went subtle, but classic; Duck45 (8) was more current; JimThePea (9) was even more topical than that, and hey, how can you not give the nod to a shop with Reggie in it. Kolibri (11) was the best of numerous Star Wars entries. BigMike McCarthy (4) was my early clubhouse leader - and then obeyyurmaster (15, 16) came in.
When you're only the second 'Shopper to get two works featured in the same gallery in more than a year of this contest, that should get you top billing. obeyyurmaster was unbelievably prolific - There's no way I could drop either his extremely well done men's room 'shop, or the Star Wars hologram, and he was the only one to think of that, it should be noted. obeyyurmaster also had a third shop that, yes, actually I would have run had these two not been more funny.
Congratulations to everyone.
