[Event] 2019 December (not) Daily Doodle, Diorama Drama! Deadline 10:00pm 26 December [WINNERS ANNOUNCED] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Winner's announced!


What are we doing? Diorama Drama!
How do we play? What's more insidious than my normal yearly diorama request? MARSHMALLOW DIORAMAS!
Why do we do this? Create a diorama using primarily marshmallow depicting the most dramatic moment of a sea battle.

Entry Template:
Pirate Name:
Ocean:
Picture: (your final product)
Description: (Tell us what's happening!)

What do you have to do?

  • Create a diorama using marshmallows
  • Remember, you're showing us the most dramatic moment of a sea battle. Are you winning? Losing? Throwing Hera overboard? OMG THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING ME!
  • Host your image(s) on Imgur. You don't need to make an account--just upload them
  • Submit your entry in this thread following the template above
  • Double check your entry to make sure your image link works and that you have not exceeded the word count for the description.

When do I have to do this? December 26, 2019 by 10:00pm

S'more the merrier!

The details

  • Only one entry per player
  • You may use other items to aid in the structure or details of your art (toothpicks, markers, string, paper, etc), but the majority of the work should be marshmallow (even marshmallow fluff!).
  • Contest will finish at game time
  • All photos must have a card/paper in them with your pirate name written on it.
  • You may edit your post up until the deadline of 10:00pm 26 Dec
  • Have fun creating!

Bah! That part of my instructions got clipped. I'll update! The short answer is: Yes, but impress me with the marshmallowiness of it all. The relevant missing bit is:

"You may use other items to aid in the structure or details of your art (toothpicks, markers, string, paper, etc), but the majority of the work should be marshmallow (even marshmallow fluff!). "

Greyladyy of Cerulean

Sea Battle 1
Sea Battle 2

Ok, so this idea was based on my worst nightmare! Going into battle, the board appears, and THIS is where you're at!! Arrrgggghhhh!

Ocean is made from marshmallow fluff colored with food coloring, the grid is made from Twizzlers peel-a-part strips, the ships, sails and rocks from extra large flat marshmallows cut to shape and rolled in corn starch to reduce tackiness. The cannons are whole cloves. Oh, the sails are held up with toothpicks, otherwise all is edible, mostly marshmallow.

Get cracking and scrambling! Eggs are here!!

Herowena
Cerulean

Sea Battle
The all-important grapple! Every sea battle, whether long drawn out, or a quick surprise ambush, comes down to this most exciting moment.


Made from assorted marshmallows , with melted ones for background. Marshmallows are a positively diabolical material, by the way.

Flag sit on last round of kade using only Sloops with island in the background.

Used melted chocolate on the sails to keep them upright and some melted chocolate between the marshmallow building blocks on the ships. STICKY and YUMMY!!

Just for the shizzles, i added fishies ^_^

Phaeirie
Emerald

Mine is a memory of a truly wonderful pirate called Squiddy on Midnight. He took a green pirate called Phaerie into her very first blockade. They were two, in a little sloop and zipped around the blockade board having a ball!

Squiddy blockades in a sloop!


I think I have Type 2 Diabetes after this one, I ate the mistakes!!! Unfortunately it's not complete. I wanted to put in a navigation control panel but ran out of time...Santa and all that. And yes, Herowena is absolutely correct....diabolical marshmallows!

Background is attempt at bnav board, foreground is trying to be a sloop after sinking the enemy (fire and debris) getting ready to face a much bigger boat, with choppy whitecaps from the waves. The boats can be identified by the toothpick masts.

Congrats to the winners!
I wish I have had the energy to have joined, now I'm missing out on an awesome doll :'(

I enjoyed looking at all the entries.

Ps. Nemesis... I hope it wasn't the recipe in your stocking that made you sick! :(
