THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED.
RESULTS NOW POSTED!
Alrighty, the results
are in for the design a horrible replacement Freddy Glove contest!
I have to say, I'm really amused by the fact that I was able to get
so many people to tape household items to their fingers. Someday
I'll have to use my powers of persuasion for something more
meaningful. In the meantime, we'll keep on doing stupid contests
like this. But enough blabbering, Let's get on with showing the
Talk about a slow
death, Freddy is apparently trying to kill people with tooth decay
According to William,
if Freddy ever decides to give up killing, he could always try for a
career in manicures and pedicures.
I guess Freddy isn't a
patron of the arts, because in addition to rubbing out his enemies,
he apparently enjoys going to museums and erasing pieces of abstract

Jason has a machete,
Michael has a kitchen knife, Leatherface has a chainsaw, and Chucky
has... well ok... people just laugh at Chucky. Still, out of all the
weapons that horror movie icons have used to terrorize their
victims, none are more recognizable than the glove of Freddy
It probably has
something to do with the fact that Freddy's glove is not something
you could just go buy at Bed Bath & Beyond. Then again, I gotta say,
I would like I see Michael Myers shopping at Bed Bath & Beyond for a
new kitchen knife. It'd still be scarier than "Halloween:
Resurrection" that's for damned sure.
But like I was saying,
Freddy's glove is a unique item that he had to make from scratch. He
didn't just grab the nearest blade and go, "Eh, I guess this'll do."
No, he actually went through the trouble of making a custom
instrument of pain that would terrify his victims the moment they
laid eyes upon it.
But this got me to
thinking... what if Freddy didn't have blades on his fingers? What
if he wanted to confuse his victims with a bizarre new glove? Or
what if maybe he wanted to play a practical joke on them? Or what if
he simply didn't have any blades handy so he had to make due with
something else for his glove?
Well my friends, I
believe it's time we answer that question ourselves. Our you with
me? You better be, goddamnit. What I want you to do is take a photo
of your very own custom Freddy glove this month. You can make it
from whatever materials you want, just make sure the fingers are
something other than his usual razors. We're going for a new Freddy glove after all!
Here, I'll show you an
FEAR MY YEASTY FINGERS OF DOOM!
Ok that's a bad
example. No, that's a REALLY BAD example. I would hope that
you'll put a little more effort into your glove than that. You don't
have to be a master craftsman or anything, these gloves are simply
going to be judged on creativity and humor. So it
really doesn't matter if you're shoving popsicle sticks through an
old winter glove or not... just give it a shot and have fun with it!
And your efforts won't
go unrewarded either! Not only will I post any photos I receive of
your custom gloves on this page, but I'm offering up some
slasherific Freddy prizes to the top 3 entries!
Each of the three
winners will receive an new, unused vintage Nightmare On Elm
Street Sticker Album PLUS a full box of vintage Nightmare on Elm
Street Sticker packs! Each box contains 48 packs and each
pack has 6 stickers. No matter how you do the math, that's a
lot of Freddy fun!
- PLUS -
The first place
winner, you get to pick whatever your favorite elm street movie is
and I'll send it to ya! Whether it's any of the original 6 Elm
Street films, Wes Craven's New Nightmare, or Freddy vs. Jason...
you can pick any one you want!
Please email your
firstname.lastname@example.org no later than October 28th, 2005!
Enter as many times as you like. Just remember, no glove is too
bizarre or too crappy, just have fun with it. The kind of fun that
Freddy has when he's killing people in those oh-so-creative ways of
his! Good luck!
By the way: YES,
this contest is open to ALL COUNTRIES, not just the United
