A Very Ugly Contest Idea

Post by MaurinQuina22 » Sun Jun 01, 2008 7:42 pm

Hey, all

Wouldn't it be cool if Uglydolls had a contest for fans to design or draw an Uglydoll, and the winners got to have their designs interpreted by Horvath/Kim and made into bona-fide Uglydolls by the company? Then maybe as a prize, the winner could get a little snippet of credit on the tag and a signed or handmade version of their plush or something. It's a win-win! Winners get prizes, David and Sun-Min get new ideas, and everyone would get to see a new Uglydoll in stores! What do you guys think? (and try to be polite, even if you don't like the idea. The "epic phail" comment when I suggested a self-made plush swap a few months back was unnecessarily rude)

Hate to bring on the bad news but the creators of the Uglys (and the nice people at the company) can never look at designs.
It's a very complicated issue, but we try our best to explain it on the web site.
Anyway, the passion behind your idea is much appreciated.
Sorry about that.

Oh, rats! Oh well. I can still dream, HAHA! Thanks for clarifying that for me, though. I have another question for you, David. If I sent you one of my Uglydolls (and money, if need be), would you sign him for me and draw a monocle and a handlebar mustache on him for my birthday? If there's anything better than an Uglydoll, it's an Uglydoll with a monocle and a handlebar mustache. :-P

That would be very tricky as we're about to hit the road for the summer
(we live in Korea)
but we will be at Uglycon in December so bring it on by!
