Contest 3 - Oh we're not done yet...

Post by Sith » Wed Apr 13, 2005 5:01 pm

CONTEST NOW OVER

"Will the real Michael Knight please stand up?"

Ladies, gentlemen... talking cars... we have a further contest for you to celebrate ten years of this very website.

Oh come on, you knew we had to do this at some point. :P

Thats right - its the lookalike competition!

Got an afro wig? Black leather jacket? 80s sunglasses? chest wig? loud shirts?

Perfect!

Put them on, take a photo. :D


The rules are very simple. Dress up as your chosen fave KR character, and post an image here. Or dress up your loved one. A family member. The dog. Maybe.

You can choose to be Michael, Garthe, Devon, RC, Bonnie, April.... heck if you're feeling adventurous - be KITT! (no replica photos... thats cheating. :P)

You may choose to be other characters if you wish, but its probably best to stick with the more familiar ones above. And don't feel restricted by your gender. You're more than welcome to dress up as a character opposite to your sex. Should you be so inclined... ;)

And thats really it. Dress up, take a pic, and post it to this thread. Not too large though please... say max of 700 x 700 and 600KB filesize. If you can't host your own images, try an upload site such as imageshack or PM neps and see if he can help you out with hosting.

If you got older pics, then by all means you can enter those too.

Prizes? Well since you insist. :P



Best Lookalike - $10 gift certificate to 80stees.com

Most Humourous Entry - $10 gift certificate to 80stees.com




So even if you feel and look silly... you might still win! 8)

Please post your entry by 11pm EST on April 30th. Adjudication will be made by the site staff.

Good luck!

I think it'd take some doing to dress Dryden up like KITT. LOL! And I don't own a 'fro wig. I think I'll pass - for now. My hair is too short for April or Bonnie and I sure as h-e-double-hockeysticks don't look ANYTHING like Devon! :lol:

Sounds like fun though.

BTW, these contests are pretty neat! :)

LOL! That contest sounds like a riot. If only I had a fro wig I had such a great idea for Michael. My dad even has a red turtleneck. Ahhh! :lol: Anyway it sounds cool. I can't wait to see some of the pics.

Ok, this is silly and not really in the mood of the contest, but a friend photoshopped me into this picture a while back and it makes me laugh everytime I look at it. Enjoy!

we've had this guy for about a year. not much of a lookalike i realize...but if you look close enough you'll see that his name is K.I.T.T. which we tell people is short for Knight Ind. 2000 : ) he's a sweet dog.

not too bright though

TurbomanKnight - Looks even nicer close up! :) BTW, I always get confused with pasting those links too. You're not the only one. I make good use of the "Preview" button prior to posting whenever I want to post any image or link. :)

Thanks,
Tim

Hey that's awesome TurbomanKnight! When I heard SciFi was taking Knight Rider off the air (Dec. 2003?) I decided to start saving the episodes that I taped. But somehow they got all messed up, and Soul Survivor was the only one that came even close to working. So until SciFi started playing Knight Rider again, I was stuck watching that one episode! :D

And I was wondering the same thing, daroga! Oh well, patience is a virtue *grumbles* :D
