Before we introduce the honorable mentions of top-quality submissions, we’d like to add a note that the judging process for this contest was quite a challenge, due to the overall excellence of entries submitted by talented folks. Here are some of the submissions that didn’t make the final three, but they’re nevertheless very excellent and equally worthy of attention and praise. So… hats off to you all!
1. Nannerpuss and Friends
“Made the pancakes, banana, and berries(?) out of scraps, old shirts and googly eyes. That’s about it. Everything is handcrafted, sewed, and stuffed, except the plate and turtle hanging out behind the pancakes.”
2. Creeping Mudkipz
“Creepers gonna creep. and/or be mudkipz. wat do?
Materials: layered foam, paper, and tissue paper on giant brown cardstock thing
My sculpture rules because i made it.”
“It is a SFW [safe-for-work] plasticine sculpture of Takakazu Abe.”

7. “Milddi” As in Milhouse & Puddi
“Our concept is Milddi: Milhouse + Puddi = Ceci n’est pas une puddi. It also features a Chris Hansen + Pedobear Oroboros, a Milhouse Custom DBZ Scouter, a keyboard, and a griffin slowpoke tail. Also, we made it out of a mini christmas tree in the spirit of the holidays + Jesus is the original meme.”

1st Place: A Portrait in Lividity
"This was part of my bronze class this semester. It’s a bust based off the 3D render by SLiD3 which was itself based off a 2D stylization of the classic Rage Face meme.
How it was made: It was first made in Plastilina clay, molded in rubber, then cast in wax for the bronze pour. It’s 9" tall and weighs 19 pounds. The patina used is a basic liver of sulfur wash which was then scrubbed back for the highlights."
