Fresh off my steaming hot
bowel movement victory in the dudeoir contest hosted by @whatsup, I am playing my prize winnings forward into a brand new contest to amuse, confuse and derange the Steem blockchain.
#DerangedSnowman Contest Rules
- Create a deranged snowman and make a post about it! (deranged, weird, curious and otherwise unusual snow people accepted as valid entries)
- The "snowman" does NOT have to be made of snow! (see below)
- Use the hashtag #derangedsnowman
- Use the #creativecoin tag to earn extra rewards on your post as some big Creative Coin tribe whales will be curating the entries :) (this is not required to enter the contest, but you would be smart to do so!)
- Share your post on external social media using hashtags #derangedsnowman and #steemblockchain to win extra Steem!
- Resteeming the contest post is NOT required to participate, but would be greatly appreciated to get the word out!
- Contest will run through December with winners announced in January
The "snowman" does NOT have to be made out of snow!
Bonus points / tiebreaker edge given to entries that are honest-to-goodness snow creations, but given that many of you won't have access to snow any creative medium will be accepted. Grab your silly putty, modeling clay, chewed bubble gum, Legos, wet sand, etc., and make a deranged snowman! Grab your guitar and write a song about a deranged snowman! Grab your pencil or pen and make a deranged snowman drawing! Make a short film about a deranged snowman (please please)! You get the (snow) drift!
Current prize pool is 315 liquid Steem and 3500 staked Creative Coin with payout structure as follows:
1st place: 125 Steem + 2000 staked Creative Coin
2nd place: 60 Steem + 1000 staked Creative Coin
3rd place: 30 Steem + 500 staked Creative Coin
5 x 10 Steem honorable mention prizes (these will be folded into the top 3 place prizes if there are not enough entries to claim the honorable mentions)
5 x 10 Steem bonus prizes for the first five entry posts that are shared on external social media using the tags #derangedsnowman and #steemblockchain (these will be folded into the top 3 place prizes if there are not enough entries to claim the bonus prizes)

- Shoutout to @galenkp for a 20 Steem contribution toward the prize pool
- Shoutout to @gibic for a 20 Steem contribution toward the prize pool
A deranged snowman? WTF is that?
Allow me to demonstrate :) We constructed this chilling beauty after our first big snowfall here in Utah over the Thanksgiving holiday :)
We had the vampire teeth laying around since Halloween and @thingone insisted we use them...
The red berries around the mouth are from a vine that grew up around our grape vines this summer. I do not know what plant this is if anyone can enlighten me - the leafs were spade shaped and resembled morning glory.
Once the vampire fangs went in I felt compelled to sculpt the face and cheeks a bit for extra creepy.
