Sweet Star Wars Day - Play with candy! [winners] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Yarrhoys,

It's May the Fourth again and so we have another great Star Wars Day especially with all that amazing stuff happening around Star Wars these days. Btw I wonder how often I can use Star Wars in this post without making it too annoying. Erm, Whatever. Where was I? Ah, yes, Star Wars Day. This week they announced the cast of Episode 7 and it's great! Old and new faces. The leading part will still be R2-D2 and C3-P0 and even some old featured parts like Han Solo and Princess Lea will be there. Also there is a new Star Wars line of M&Ms. That must be a sign. Old and new combined! While Apollo, Grand Master of the Doodle-Order had some Jelly-Star-Wars-Doodle a couple of years back, this time will be bigger as it also features M&Ms, other coated peanuts and Jelly Beans! Come back to cinemas on December 18th, 2015. Oh wait, that was the movie, not the doodle! Doodle is today.

So for this Years Star Wars Day Doodle, or Star Wars DD (remember, I need to type Star Wars, can't use abbreviations for that) you have to make some candy Droids.
Yes, We all know that Star Wars is the Story of 2 droids in a galaxy far far away and the best medium for any art project is candy.
Make a picture of one or two droids (they don't have to be R2-D2 or C3-P0). The picture must not be drawn but made out of jelly, jelly beans, gummy bears or similar as well as round stuff like chocolate coated peanuts (or other stuff like M&Ms). The droid(s) should also have some pirate accessory.

To enter please reply to this post and include in your entry:

Your pirate name and ocean.
A picture of your picture in [img]-tags with a maximum size of 600 x 600 px
A link to a picture of the materials you used with a piece of paper reading your name and "May the 4th be with you"
A link to a work in progress shot of your droid with a piece of paper reading your name and "May the 4th be with you"
A link your finished picture with a piece of paper reading your name and "May the 4th be with you"

As this year's Star Wars Day is on a Sunday and it is hard to buy candy on a Sunday in several countries, you have 3022 minutes (about 50 hours) to complete this doodle. This means C3-P0 and R2D2 also tell you how long you might take.
So the deadline for this event is Tuesday May the Si(x)th at 2.10 am pirate time.

Only one entry per pirate

Oh, I forgot something. Prizes:

Always two there are, no more no less. A master and an apprentice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7SjW0vFCiI

1st place (the master): A chocolate sloop and a commemorative trinket,

Honorable mentions (the apprentice): Light Sabers (the game tells me it's crossed candy canes), a box of bonbons, chocolate covered strawberries and a commemorative trinket.

May the Force be with you!

So are we limited to gummy items and chocolate coated round things - or can I use, say skittles (also roundish, lol) in addition to m&ms?
Also, as a follow up for that - Is frosting and such to hold pieces together allowed?

U can also use skittles. I consider them as jedi beans lookalike.
If you mean by frosting to freeze the candy in place, go for it. You can also use any surface you want.
If you mean with frosting to use icing over the candy, i have to decline.

last question I promise!

Gummy bears or similar: is this intended to mean othe gummy creatures or gummy candy on the whole (gummy rings/gumdrops, jujubes, etc). >.> I don't want to be disqualified for incorrect items :D

A friend walked in to my apt and saw all the junk I have sitting out for this project and asked me if I was trying to give myself diabetes...

So this is my own little versions of an R5 unit (with his little pirate hat) and IG-88 (complete with hook hand) units chilling on the beach after a long day of pirating.
IG-88 has given up a life being an assassin droid in favor of a life on the high seas and met R5 along the way!

Sorry for the terrible photo quality. Couldn't find my camera so had to use my pitiful old cell phone :D

Supplies with tag - the beach is brown sugar, I forgot to include in photo.
In Progress with tag
Final Image with tag
Fun fact: the R5 unit's pirate hat was how one of the Dots came in my box...so I just decided to use as is :D

And we have a winner.

Congratulations for R2BeatU and her human technician Herowena.

Honorable mentions to Jstgeorge and Raya for upright 3D-models.

I was really surprised when I saw that.

May the 4th-9th be with (and all other numbers).
Prices will be delivered via OM-Express and should be in your inventory shortly. In case of the ship please trade it to an alt and back if you haven't been online when your pockets got heavier ;)

Thank you, that was a lot of fun! I'm so happy you ran the event.
I was also surprised to see upright, 3-D jellydroids. That never occurred to me, and I applaud such ambition and engineering!

Likewise, it never occurred to me simply to lay them flat, mosaic like.
