Oscar Contest 2009Oscar Contest 2009
The Seventh Annual Web-Goddess Oscar Contest is now open for entry! This year's winner will take home a one-of-a-kind pair of Batman and Joker sock monkeys. (I almost didn't do them because it seemed too obvious, but I also couldn't resist the opportunity to make my second Heath Ledger tribute monkey.) I have to say, the Joker monkey is without a doubt the most DISTURBING sock creation of all time. He features hand-hooked green hair, a green waistcoat, a purple duster, and a SUPER-CREEPY painted face. Batman features a utility belt, a bat crest on his chest, his bat mask/helmet, and a long black cape. You could act out your favorite scenes from the movie... or slash fiction! Up to you. More photos and details after the jump. Now go enter!
 
Please note: You're welcome to save these photos to your server as long as you give me credit and link back to the contest. If I catch you hot-linking them or claiming credit, I reserve the right to replace them with something nasty (or poke you in the eye with a pencil).

Anyway, I know this picture is enormous, but it's also my favorite and I can't resist. I've got this set as my desktop wallpaper right now.

Batman and Joker Sock Monkeys

Here's the full view so you can see how long their arms/legs/tails are.

Joker close-up. Note: I used acrylic paint on his face, so you can't ever get him wet or it'll come off.

Awesome. I entered. I love Batman's cape. The Joker's hair is kind of creeping me out.

This year I will submit my entry after thought, consideration and research. Not after 2 glasses of red wine. I am hoping to get at least 4 correct.

LOL you're so awesome. I don't think I actually entered your last comp so I'm all excited I got to this one on time! I'll be watching with anticipation *grin* Love your work, chicka. Sorry I missed saying hi properly at the housewarming the other day.

Gorgeous. You are so clever with these weird objects. But I think that the Brokeback ones are still my faves.

Would love to commission you to create another Joker. If you could email me to let me know as willing to pay handsomely!
