Mockery Oct 18th, 2007 02:58 AM

I-Mockery's final forum contest of the 2007 Halloween season has arrived!

Continuing our annual "Two Months of Halloween" celebration, we're kicking off our latest contest where you can win an extremely rare classic Boo Berry costume! BEHOLD!

*goggles, hat and RoG not included

This costume was only available for a limited time as a mail order item for people who bought Boo Berry cereal back in the day. On the rare chance that it goes up for sale on eBay, this thing often sells for over 200 bux. So yeah, it's quite a collectible for Monster Cereal and Halloween costume fanatics alike. But that's just the Grand Prize!

Oh yes, there's more. I'm giving our 2nd and 3rd place winners some Elm Street goodies!

Both our 2nd and 3rd place winners will each receive a vintage Nightmare on Elm Street sticker album and a full box of Nightmare on Elm Street stickers (48 packs in each box)!

For this contest, we want you to show us how you think about breakfast. Monster cereals in particular. What if you were going to create your very own Horror-themed cereal? What would it be like? What would it be called? What would be the ingredients?

In order to be eligible for one of the prizes, you must create some kind of new monster/horror-themed cereal. for your entry to count. Feel free to use any pre-existing horror icons, graphics, etc. (vintage or modern) to integrate into the design of your new cereal. But make sure you give the cereal an original name! We also encourage you to show the actual cereal itself, either on the cover of the box or in a bowl sitting next to the box.

Your entries can come in one of two formats:
1) You can physically modify a real cereal box and take a photograph of it. (definitely encourage people to try this)
2) You can photoshop a cereal box with images you found on the web.

As usual, this contest will be judged on creativity and humor.

I've also whipped up a quick example for you:

Of course, this is a quick, down 'n dirty example that's not very good, but you get the idea. You can also see some far more professional examples here. (those examples are from a cool upcoming book, I might add.)

If you have any questions still, feel free to ask.


1st Place: The Rare Boo Berry Costume!
2nd Place: A Nightmare on Elm Street Sticker album and a full box of stickers!
3rd Place: A Nightmare on Elm Street Sticker album and a full box of stickers!


-To participate, you must register an account on these forums (if you don't already have one) and post your entries in this thread.

-Once the contest is over, myself and the other staff members will vote on the entries!

-Entries will be judged on creativity and humor.

-You MUST come up with a custom name for your new monster/horror-themed cereal.

-It would be a good idea to show the cereal itself either on the box or in a bowl too.

-Whether you win or not, your entries will be put on display for everybody to enjoy.

-Enter as many times as you like!!

Ok that's it. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Good luck to all of you and start crankin' out those spooky cereals!

This contest ends 10/28/07.

BIG THANKS to our friends over at FRIGHT CATALOG for helping sponsor this!

The Angus Scrimm design itself is a reworked character design by Andrew Barr. Check out his stuff. This is not his original design, rather my own version built from the ground up. All other elements in the overall package design are my personal brainchildren.
Try and read the nutritional panel as well.

Scott Von Rocket Oct 18th, 2007 09:55 PM

A friend from another board pointed me here and suggested doing one for "Chucky Charms", so I gave it a shot. Brought to you by General Kills Cereals...

Time for my sub-par photoshop skills to strike again!

Obscurus Lupa Oct 18th, 2007 10:02 PM

Used my favorite horror movie. :D

My First Entries
Sorry these are so big, but the text wasn't as readable when they are smaller.

You might argue that this isn't ironic, but it was the best I could come up with.

Here's number two...I really like how this one turned out.

Edit: I made this before I saw the link RoG provided. So I didn't really copy it...

More to come later, probably.

Robot Elvis, your image isn't showing up. You need to upload it to some place on the web. Currently it looks like you're linking to an image of some sort on your hard drive. It needs to be an image you upload somewhere online in .JPG or .GIF format and then post it on the forum so people can see it.

I always thought Cannibal Corpse was funny due to how over the top their songs and album art were.

And here is the bleeding box in action...

hypnotic_peach Oct 23rd, 2007 12:32 AM

sorry the transparency isnt working for me for some reason.

J. Tithonus Pednaud Oct 23rd, 2007 12:46 PM

Chip_Winger Oct 23rd, 2007 11:01 PM

Wow. It's been awhile since I've posted. Ahh well, here's my enrty!

nomistakinit Oct 24th, 2007 09:11 PM

I was kind of inspired by the "Cutethulhu" parody on Youtube for this box.

J. Tithonus Pednaud Oct 24th, 2007 09:29 PM

Chocula is horrified.

Grislygus Oct 25th, 2007 02:42 AM

Link (it's big).

leathco Oct 29th, 2007 04:19 PM

I didn't have time to get my other one done, but I was attempting to modify a box of cereal bought at Wal-Mart with an old horror icon photo. Couldn't figure out how to make the ceral different though.

The idea? Well, if you saw my Furry Flakes submission, you know I like the classics.



Dr. V Nov 10th, 2007 01:25 AM

Wow these are really good.

hypnotic_peach Nov 11th, 2007 03:51 PM

when do we get the results?

Mockery Nov 15th, 2007 01:54 PM

Weird, I coulda swore I posted the results to this contest already. Sorry for the delay guys... just been completely swamped with the site redesign 'n all. Anywho, here be the results!

1st Place: J. Tithonus Penaud (Phantasms)

2nd Place: Nomistakinit (various entries)

3rd Place: Scott von Rocket (Chucky Charms)

Congrats to the winners and thanks again to all of you who participated. We'll have some more contests coming up in the near future!

BTW, Nomistakinit, I personally thought you should've won for your Sleepaway Camp entry, but I don't think any of the other judges saw that movie so the joke was a bit lost on 'em... but hey, at least you still got 2nd place :P

Thanks for your vote anyway.

I'm happy with 2nd

I PM'd my address

Obscurus Lupa Nov 15th, 2007 06:21 PM

Congrats on the win, guys! Those were great entries.

Eyelobe Nov 16th, 2007 01:41 AM

Nice work guys. The winning entries were great.

Will there be any more contests like this?

ZAKO the GREAT Nov 16th, 2007 04:24 AM

this is really a long one...
but, congrats!

J. Tithonus Pednaud Nov 16th, 2007 04:49 PM

Wow. I didn't expect to win. I really think the Sleepaway Camp cereal should have won it as well. The judges clearly need to view more horror films featuring gender confusion.
Still I will take the tainted victory. I am a bastard in that way. And the way my parents weren't married....

Chojin Nov 16th, 2007 08:46 PM

If I had remembered to vote, I would have shown Zako some love :<

Mockery Nov 16th, 2007 11:17 PM

Zako's was drawn real nicely, easily one of the best as far as that goes, but I don't think it was all that funny which is primarily what the contest was being judged on. Plus, as he said himself, it was "unfinished" too. None of these contests are supposed to be judged solely on art, because then that would be unfair to the people who enter who aren't good artists. But anybody can be creative/funny, so that's why we try to judge 'em based on those qualities to keep everything more balanced.


Zomboid Nov 17th, 2007 04:31 PM

I find it horrifying that so few people on here have seen sleepaway camp. That ending was easily one of the most disturbing points in my life.
