3CoconutMonkey DesignerCon Contest

DesignerCon 2012 was this past Saturday, November 3rd and it was an amazing con. This was the first time that we have attended DesignerCon and it was incredible. We had the opportunity to meet many of our favorite artists and see their unbelievable creations. 3CoconutMonkey who are the creators of the Yo! and Boner vinyl figures hosted a custom vinyl contest and Angry Koala Gear's Matt Perez created a piece for the contest, Yo!thulu. We were fortunate to co-sponsor the Shock and Awesome Custom Vinyl Toy contest at Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo who had great pieces and entries, but this time Matt Perez wanted to give it a try. This would actually be his very first contest and he was glad to participate in the event. 

The Yo!thulu was created from the Yo! figure and Matt Perez wanted to of course create H.P. Lovecraft's famous creature, the Cthulhu. He used Super Sculpey to create this awesome piece. He not only created the Yo!thulu, but also wanted to create a special base to show a little character being sacrificed to this creature. 

There were many incredible entries for the contest! 

There were amazing entries in the 3CoconutMonkey D-Con Contest as we said and we were honored to have the Yo!thulu in the event. Being a co-sponsor and judges in the Shock and Awesome Custom Vinyl Toy contest at Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo was an incredible experience, but this time was great to see one of our own pieces in a contest.

At the end of the day the results would be in for the winners of the D-Con contest and Angry Koala Gear's Matt Perez would get 3rd Place with his Yo!thulu custom figure.  We want to congratulate Matt Perez!

The 2nd Place winner was the Skull Goyle custom Boner figure created by Skully (Dana Ingles). It was a pretty amazing piece. We heard that this would be their first time creating a custom for a contest. Congratulations to Skully (Dana Ingles)!

The Grand Prize winner was David Zajdman with this awesome Bull Dog custom from the Boner figure. Congratulations to David!

The 3CoconutMonkey D-Con contest was terrific and we loved the entries! We do hope to collaborate again in the future with other contests.
