Kotaku 'Shop Contest: The Bling Side Of The Force: Winners!

Last week we challenged our Photoshop-savvy readers to out-bling a Darth Vader helmet covered in gold. We’re going to need more precious metals.

While many of this week’s entries took a more modern approach to making sure everybody knows how much money Star Wars characters have, ‘Shop Contest regular uscg_pa took a more...traditional approach? Sure, we’ll go with that. Direct from Time|Life Books’ Ancient Mysteries, I give you Amon Vader.

I may have spelled that incorrectly, but no one is allowed to correct it unless they are ancient Egyptians, and ancient Egyptians have no computers, so I’m in the clear.

There were plenty of amazing entries this week, of course, and not all of them were from uscg_pa. If yours was amazing and didn’t make the cut, make sure your image is 636 pixels wide, because they really need to be.
