Luxtoberfest Luxshoppe Showdown Tournament Spectacular!

Post by mbauer » Tue Sep 04, 2007 3:14 pm

Sign up here to participate in the 13th annual, Luxtoberfest edition, sudden elimination, round-robin, Luxshoppe Showdown Tournament Spectacular!!!

The winner gets their art displayed for all eternity in the holy Art Gallery. With that privelage they get to gloat and treat others as feable losers. If you already do that, no worries, now you'll be justified in doing so.

Whoever would like to play just sign up here. You will be paired off randomly to fight one another to the death during the month of luxtober. If you win you move on to the next fight, if you lose everyone points and laughs at you. At the end of luxtober only one will be crowned Luxshoppe Champion!!! and will maybe get a nice shiny prize (details pending).

For more detailed rules visit this thread

If you don't use Photoshop don't worry I'm sure we can find someway to bridge the gap to include all photo manipulators out there. But if that is the case and you would like to sign up please state what program you will be using.

Can I use some help from a friend - or does it have to be all original from the entrant?

I am completely new to photoshop but I need to learn.

Put me down but hopefully I can lean on others for help (especially with finding incriminating photos/pics etc from Lux forums to use!!)

Soon after Kef was slaughtered by yours truley in the last showdown he left for nearly a year to play WOW. So my question is- can we raise the stakes a bit and agree that if anyone else wins Kef will be banished to roam WOW for the rest of highschool? If so I'm in!

They are on a super-duper tip-top secret semi-holy mercy mission in Hawaii. It involves two large tubs of flea powder, a jar of vaseline, and the simian known as Kef - I'm afraid that's all I can say.
