Brief Description:

My son is 5yrs old and wanted to be a lego man. So we took one of his little lego men and scaled it up to his size and then the fun began. It took alot more time than i expected, but I'd have to say that it was well worth it! He had so much fun trick or treating because of all the attention he got! We found pre cut styrofoam and used that for the head and the hands. Everything else was made from foam board! Great way for all of us to get involved this year! Fun family time!!

-2 black foam boards

Contest Photo Tips and Guidelines:
  • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your gingerbread house or holiday cookie is the star!
  • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
  • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
  • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
  • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
