Entry 1 - Friendly neighborhood donating to the poor.
* This is a great use of the spaces and avatars. Reminds us of the importance of charity and giving to those less fortunate. Nicely done!
Photobombed By A Reindeer
*This cracked us up! What a great nod to the current trend of photobombing pictures. Pesky reindeer - always ruining the shot! XD
Sheriff Rick and the Pepsi!
* This is brilliantly done, great use of the space and items, and a nice nod to our sponsors. We can imagine people trying to get into convenience stores during a zombie apocalypse and having the place be empty. The lack of other users almost makes it a bit eerie! Love how you made it work!
This is how a gaian gets their first can of Pepsi.
* The cow on the vending machine made us laugh so much, as did the very appropriate user names and outfits in the screenshot! It's a great blend of the Rally space users and the silliness that is Gaia. Well done! biggrin
Thanks again to all who entered, and congrats to the winners! Prizes will be given out on Wednesday biggrin
