Pancake, the Borderlands 2 loot dog, and a cat dressed in Journey cosplay, were the brave animal subjects of our mad photoshop laboratory last week. No doggies or kitties were hurt during this production, but we sure did have a lot of fun putting them in weird poses. We've got 20 winners inside, including Pan_1da7!
Leading off, blueTunic (3) orders up a Pancake with everyththing on her, including mustard. everydayfury (4) delivered the Cats Who Say Ni. Now bring us a shrubbery! And arniejolt (2) reminds us that Assassins and Templars are like cats and dogs.
Yub yub, Majornougat (9). musickid43 supplied the obligatory Asshole Dog from Duck Hunt 'shop. It's not surprising that GiantBoyDetective (6) gave us a Pokémon shop. It is surprising that he was the only one. We'll get you next time, weirdnaibor. Next tiiiiiiiime ...
Candidates for overall winner? Galogon's (5) interpretation of Pancake as Link from Wind Waker was inspired and very well done. Link's blond coif on Pancake makes me laugh every time. hampstasandwich (7) had the last entry but it was superb. Proof that I do read all of the comments, folks. I loved Jamir's (8). Pancake looks so earnest, and the Journey cat is in a perfect pose, tapping its gloves.
But Pan_1da7, who cleans up in our Taypics derby and is a repeat finalist in this contest, turned in two outstanding shops that give him top honors overall. And the No. 1 selection was the favorite of Pancake's owner herself. We'll let Elizabeth Tobey have the final word here, since she was so gracious to donate her dog to our pseudo-science.
Congratulations to all the finalists, thanks to everyone who entered, and we'll have a new 'Shop Contest for you tomorrow.
