Dubble sticking tape, cut to size ofcourse :-D

Hmmm... that could be considered as a custom part. 8-|

Lol, I was going to make a naked lady too...Capt'n Green Hair beat me to it  :-D ! I had the same idea for a figurehead with 1x1s for boobies.  
All of the figureheads are looking great  *y*  but Captain Green hair's is my favorite so far.

Maybe you should enter, it's just a simple figure head!  And why don't you post comments on the current ones, or are you too sad of being a poor hunted albino seal :[.
No I'm sad because I'm having great difficulties transferring 150GB of video between a Mac and my computer.  As I'm about 2 and a half days behind schedule I will be entering nothing.

I would make a small exception in this case since it serves a higher purpose: The creation of boobies  :-D

And I agree.
Glue or tape, it's still tampering with the bricks and thus the same as customizing.
Instead a solution could be to use the bottom of a lever and a yellow rubber band.

this is the lever part I speak of

That would do nicely for boobs. :-D

Nice entries though..I like'em all and yes even the one with the perhaps customized boobs

I agree, too. My two cents!  :-D

I was actually gonna do the lever/elastic band technique. I actually did it, but I didn't have the right colour on hand, so I went with a star fish!  :-D

What do you guys think of my entry?  :-$

But what do you think Bonaparte? Should captain Green Hair be disqualified? (it would be a big shame though :'-( )

Or should we keep him in the contest? I do love his figurehead...

Correct me if i'm wrong,

Stickers are ok, but a hidden piece of tape, wich also sticks is not??? :S  (i'm confused)



I love your entry sir nadroj, it's very original and fits the cartoonisch style of the ship perfect!

I'd vote for keeping him in the contest; it's definitely pushing the rules a bit.
I might be more picky if this were an official contest with prizes and such. :-$

I know you asked B, but you got my opinion also :)

I say his entry is allowed. Like the captain himself indicated, a decal (which is allowed) would also be attached using tape or glue. So this is actually less customized than an attached decal would be.

I just did and posted my entry.
It's something I've made in 30 minutes (including searching for the bricks), so I really don't expect to win  :-D
