Dress-Your-Gear Contest! Win 007 Blu-rays!
If we can do it, anyone can! We created Sarah Palin (right) by employing an mStation 2.1 stereo orb (top left) and a Boston Acoustics tower speaker (bottom left). Throw in a Palin wig, a pair of cheap glasses, a jacket from Goodwill, an American flag pin, a happy heaping of lipstick, and voila! -Photos by Jack Howard (except for mStation Orb)
Don't use your home theater system just for playing scary movies on H'ween; costume it for the occasion! And win a kick-SPECTRE-ass James Bond Blu-ray collection in the process.
Here's the deal: Just recruit one or more home theater components (all, if you dare). Dress it/them up in a costume for Halloween (no Photoshopping!). Take photos. Email us the photos. The best getup (as decided by us) wins.
It's so fun and easy, even we could do it: Here you see our Sarah Palin, as portrayed by an mStation 2.1 Stereo Orb for the head and a Boston Acoustics tower speaker for the bod.
First place prize: The just-released James Bond Blu-ray Collection Six-Pack, featuring Dr. No, From Russia with Love, Thunderball, Live and Let Die, For Your Eyes Only, and Die Another Day - a $180 value. Her majesty will be served via a 1080p AVC transfer, accompanied by a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack. Plus, each film has been re-mastered frame-by-frame by digital restoration guru John Lowry.
Bonus: We'll post photos of the winner's costumed gear here on our site on Halloween day. And non-winners? While they won't get a six-pack of 007, they still just may get their dressed-up equipment onto our site if the images wow us.
Here's how to enter: • Email photos (in jpeg format) to firstname.lastname@example.org, Subject Line: "Halloween Contest" • In the body of the email, include your name, town, and state (for publication), plus your address and phone number (we won't publish these; we'll just need them to send you your prize if you win) • Submit your entry by midnight, Eastern Time, the morning of October 31 (we'll post the results later that day on Halloween). • For more, click here for OFFICIAL RULES.
Good luck! If you win, it will be like breaking the casino royale. And if you loose - well, we don't want to sound like a bunch of Doctor No's - but you'll need a quantum of solace.
