Extreme Blockadeover: This is the Champion, My Friends

bboycostumedark091607



Congratulations, Lydean "Silvercat" Kind!

After much anguished, heart-rending, beard-tugging deliberation, I've chosen your submission to be my new costume! Yours came out on top because I liked the pure superhero vibe of it, combined with the castle-shaped cutout to show off my intimidating crop of chest hair. It's genius, and something your standard (i.e. "straight") male superhero would never wear in a million years. (Power Boy doesn't count, because he waxes his chest, and also because he's not exactly a good guy.) Also, I've been thinking about getting more into the superhero/adventurer side of things in some capacity, so this will be a perfect look for me. And it helps that when I was scouting locations for my tent sale in the Rimbor Black Mega-Market this morning, I bought these KEWL bracers that shoot brick-wall-shaped forcefields that can knock my foes on their asses!

(Hey, Storm Boy... think fast! *SHPA-PAANNNGGG!!!* Aw, too slow, buddy! ...Heh, heh...)

So anyway, there's the offensive capability I need to be a proper superhero, and it fits my name and my personality! I mean, as most of my former lovers will tell you, I'm all about the blunt-force trauma.

For your prize, I'd be happy to send you the original artwork for the action shot I posted up there. Or I can do something else if you like. It's no trouble at all! Just e-mail me with your request. If you'd rather not give out your mailing address, I can send the art to a P.O. box or even another person on your behalf. Just let me know!

Congratulations Lydean!

Your interpretation of the design really sells it, BB. It's got a bit of the "superhero wacky*" vibe I love, while being an integrated ensemble. Cool.

*Y'know, along the Kirby/Kanigher/Mantlo/Morrison axis.

Yeah. I wasn't quite seeing it from Hero Machine output, but in action, it's excellent.

The new layout is a good choice, too.

BB,

Different topic:

have enough years gone by
have you enough forgiveness in your heart
have the talent to makeover...

Nardo?

Congrats to the winner! I at least have my crenelations.

Blockade Boy said...

I've been fiddling with the site layout and my headshot all day but I think it finally looks pretty good... for now.

Scipio: Bite your tongue! I'll never forgive that sonuvabitch. NEVER! (Blockade Boy ANGRY!!!)

Congrats, Lydean!

It does look good. The bracers rawk!

Good call. That's a sweet superheroing outfit.

Silvercat said...

EEEEEEE!!! I never win anything... of course, I rarely enter anything either...

Andy said...

Crap! I just "discovered" your blog, and would have loved to have gotten an entry in! Oh well... NEXT TIME!

BTW: LOVE the winning design! But I personally would like to see less of the orange section and a BIGGER cut-out area to show off the fur!
