his excitement at the prospect of another
Tinfoil Hat Competition
And of this blog!
Yes, that too. I hadn't forgotten.
Good, because it's the blog that has made all this possible.
OK, OK! I said I hadn't forgotten. My, you are a bit mardy this morning, aren't you?
Anyway, getting on with the show: The 9th October this year will be the 10th anniversary and, as we mentioned before, we'll be holding another Tinfoil Hat Competition to commemorate the auspicious occasion.
I still haven't decided on a theme, so anything goes - Let your juices run wild! Your creative juices, that is, as tin foil is notorious for not having the capacity to mop up errant spillages...

Hmmm... That pointing wand looks remarkably familiar...

For the curious and anyone new here, you can see the very first Tin Foil Hat Compo Gallery from 2010 here, and last year's here.
The rules of the compo will be along these lines:
To enter, you must fashion a tinfoil hat and/or other bodily accoutrement (we're considering allowing certain other accessories), take a photo of yourself wearing said chapeau/accessory (or, if you are camera-shy, put it on a melon or other head-sized object) and send me the photo (email address is in my profile) along with a short technical description of the hat's functions, and/or a tale of fancy to go with it.
The winner will be chosen by any/all of myselves, and displayed on this here blog. There will also be a (yet to be determined, but you can guarantee it'll be cheap) prize, or prizes.
And "when do we have to get these photos sent in by?", I hear you ask? Why, I haven't decided yet. Needless to say, I shall be posting the compo proper soon (probably later this month or early September), so I'll supply full terms and conditions then.
Get those tinfoil thinking caps on, and good luck!
