Congrats @LoveMuppet and all of team 2
I went through all the pages of this thread, adding up everyone's numbers and I was so so so wrong. But yay! And congrats Tribe 2.
Good job, everyone!
It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s …
The Super Turker
Who wouldn’t love to save the world? Ok, that sounds like a lot of work … how about having a Turking Super Power?! What would it be? Would you use your power for the benefit or detriment of yourself or others? The possibilities are endless!
This is what each Castaway needs to do this week:
Create the ultimate Turker.
Your Turker must have a turking-related super power.
Your Turker must have a backstory.
Submit your backstory and a picture of your real life costumed Turker privately to me. This must be a real life picture of a costume you created. It doesn’t necessarily have to be you wearing the costume - feel free to harangue the nearest human or pet until they have no choice but to don the costume and assume the Turker Superhero pose!
Get as wild and crazy as you like with your Turker. It can be completely futuristic, perhaps medieval, or maybe … a time traveler? Will it be you? Your neighbor? A fellow MTC Member (play nice)? Will it even be human!?
The picture and backstory will be due in a PM to me by THURSDAY night 11:59 pm PST (daily thread change).
We will put the characters to an anonymous forum vote on Friday. The Castaway with the highest amount of forum votes will win this week’s challenge and earn two points.
This week’s Prize:
First Place: To Be Announced
Runner Up (or Tie will split): To Be Announced
This week's Castaways:
omg I'm gonna fail this so hard
Well, whatever I WAS going to knit this week is off the needles.
It's going to be AMAZING! Don't doubt yourself ... you will be surprised
Oh, I know. I meant whatever I'm currently working on will be on hold because I have to work on this. LMAO! I just woke up so the words don't come out right.
Will the photo be up for the public vote. to see...?
Yes, I will create a HIT for the forum on Friday and post it for all to vote on.
Clarification from a pm'd question: You can use a bit of photoshop to enhance your photo (ie: add lasers, explosions, etc) as long as it's an actual photo you took of your Turking Super Hero and it's not 100% photoshopped.
Sadly I'm not going to be able to get this finished in time this week. There's just too much going on for me to able to put something together like this solo I look forward to everyone's entries and voting though!!
I'm afraid I might be the same. I can figure out the backstory and ect, but I'm not sure if I can do the costume. Today and tomorrow I am unusually busy. And Thursday I already offered my day up to family.
I'm still going to try. Might just get me in leggings and cape..lol.
They're doing the floors at my place this week and it's a complete disaster so I won't be able to participate in this one either. Just terrible timing. I do look forward to seeing the insane creations though.
Ohhhh easy points and money up for grabs this week with some people dropping out!
Remember, we're not looking for something that's walking down 5th Ave in the Macy Day Parade
I kind of had an idea of how to do the photo, but I don't think I can sit down and actually come up with anything. I'll try next week.
There are super power generators and story line generators that might help you with nonsense stories.
edit: it gives you like three things as a writing prompt, it doesn't actually write a story. Although I did just find one that did and it was...interesting to say the least
