Ahh, I'm really late in reading about this year's diorama contest, so I'm not sure I'll get a photo ready in time xD I will try, though. :) Looking forward to seeing everyone's entries~

Anyway, I also wanted to say- Kayakasaurus: I love your models! Those little Paras are so cute and fun looking!! Any chance they'll be up for sale?

I hope you can  :)

Thanks! Yes I've been planning to sell them, I've just been busy. Any particular color you liked?

Completely understandable! Hmm, I think I like the green + blue variegated ones, or the ones with white "socks"! The hot pink with dark blue was very nice, too. They would be fun to have around the house in potted plants :)

Going to try and take some photos later today~

Do I need to think of a creative title for my diorama? Or are you not bothering with them this year.

"3,000 km to the south, the massive comet crashes into Earth. The light from the impact fades in silence. Then the shock waves arrive. Next comes the blast front. Finally a rain of molten rock starts to fall out of the darkening sky - this is the end of the age of the dinosaurs. The Comet struck the Gulf of Mexico with the force of 10 billion Hiroshima bombs. And with the catastrophic climate changes that followed 65% of all life died out. It took millions of years for the earth to recover but when it did the giant dinosaurs were gone - never to return." - WWD

I would think that the diorama title is helpful to the member voters in distinguishing between the entries that they are considering (versus, say simply numbering the entries 1 to whatever)...

I'm excited too.  If anyone still wants to join the contest, you have 3 days to enter.  Maybe you have an old unused diorama photo - or a quick photo shoot idea. Just do it.  The more entries the more fun there is reviewing them!   ;D ;D ;D

Thanks,... I almost suspected the foreground is some stegosaur stuff, nice replica of the throat armor, that alos the Kinto? That Allosaurus is a real stunner and great angle to show it.

Oh my....
I thought the deadline is midnight July 31st!

I also can't wait to see all the diorama entries. :D
First goal was to get an artwork to participate the contest. Hardly done with a little more fortune than acro-man. :o (Bad luck! Hope you can use your diorama next year.)

Now I read this thread again and I saw no decision about the further procedure. Will we all forum members make the votes again? Would there be a board of judges? Or what else? And no hurry - but are there some intended deadlines? ???

I'm a little bit impatient and may be a little bit unjust. It is a great pleasure that Kayakasaurus takes all the efforts for our fun. Thank you so much for your engagement. ;D
