  • Just Whisper's 2013 Prop Contest Entry

    After going through about 6 different ideas, I think I finally found one that fits the budget.

    My entry will be a candy garden background, with a young boy pulling a wagon filled with candy In front of the garden. That is all I am giving away for right now. I guess now I have to go scrounge up a newspaper for my official BEFORE photo. Haha.

    Okay, I found something with a date on it. Here is a photo of some of the materials I will probably use. My paneling, a couple of wheels and a few of my graphics.

    I like the candy garden idea a lot. I just looked at Putrid's thread too. You guys come up with such great concepts! Maybe I should go back to the drawing board...

                Sounds like a wonderful idea, JW!
                People really act weird at Christmas time. After all, what other time of year do you sit in front of a dead tree in the living room and eat nuts and sweets out of your socks?

                    The candy garden sounds like when Willy Wonka opened up the door into his workshop and you see the huge garden of eatible candy in every shape and form. Great idea!

                              I happen to know that edwin suffers from jealousy issues. I am sure he knows I am going to blow his project out of the water.

                              And sickie is such an instigator.

                              Putrid, you are such a brown noser.

                              LOL. Okay, thanks everyone for the funny remarks, and the kind encouragement. Except you edwin. I will deal with you later. In the basement. Bring a stein.
