w-g Oscar Contest 2012

My annual Oscar Contest is now open! If you pick the most correct answers, you'll win the big prize: The Monkey with the Dragon Tattoo. Yes, I made Lisbeth Salander Monkey. She has piercings; she has a Macbook; she has a golf club; and she has the titular tattoo. I think this is the most work I've ever put into a single monkey! (She's also the first one that's probably Not Safe for Work, given the slogan on her T-shirt.) And remember, in the event of a tie, the person that entered earlier wins. So don't wait too long! Read on for more photos, or go here to enter.
 
Here's Lisbeth Monkey in profile. Check out that fringe.

Lisbeth profile

Front view. As you can see, she has an eyebrow piercing, a nose piercing, and a lip piercing. She's also got black spiral earrings and a necklace chain with a razor blade on it. (Special thanks to the Snook, who crafted the razor out of plastic and spray painted it.)

Lisbeth front

She wears combat boots, of course.

Lisbeth boots

She wears a hoodie over a ripped-up T-shirt. Oh look! She's hacking on her Macbook.

Lisbeth hacking

I wouldn't piss her off if I were you. Chick has a golf club and she knows how to use it.

If you pull down her T-shirt in the back, you can see her dragon tattoo. (FREEHAND, BABY!)

I told you it was Not Safe for Work.

I love the way you've captured her inner vulnerability despite the tough exterior :

Great photos! The simple white background really offsets her lovely eyes. Excellent work as always. I can't figure out where you find time for all this creativity!

When we heard it was "not safe for work" we immediately thought it must be Ryan Gossling and the locker room scene from "Crazy Stupid Love." Oh, well.

I was tempted to do a Gosling monkey. Apparently his jacket from "Drive" is quite iconic I just hadn't seen it, and I wasn't sure my garment sewing skills were up to it!

Love her! Great work Kris.

Love her!

Question-- I'm not able to enter the contest via Safari or Chrome...both give me an error of "cannot find oscarcontest.php"

Sweet, can't wait. Gary Oldman, get me that monkey! :)
» Kevin [www] » 2012-02-07 05:37:51
 
That's weird, Leslie! I haven't heard of anybody else having a problem. (I'm looking at it on Chrome right now.) Can you try it again? Maybe my server was rebooting then or something. There's nothing that should restrict it to a particular browser.

This? This is perfection. I needs her.

I love this, sock monkey's rock!
» Zena [www] » 2012-02-08 20:03:18
 
This year I know very little about any of the movies (why yes, I have been under a rock), so I've followed my betting on horses and footy tipping methodology.

But if Bridesmaids wins anything I will be very disappointed.
