    I think Wrong Episode Posters is a great theme with plenty of opportunities for fun, fear, affection or befuddlement, and I hope you do too. If you have any thoughts or questions, or just need a bit of help or inspiration, please reply here.

    You have until the end of Friday 1st March to post your final entries here (although if you need a little more time, just say). I'm already looking forward to seeing some perplexing posters! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    That Playmates ship replica is really sleek there.

    Your Miri poster is so cool, @Orac - great use of fold lines!

    I'm going to have to get a move on with my poster. I've been fart-arsing around on-an-off for the last couple of weeks trying to put a Carry On Conspiracy poster together in MSPaint (a bit like my Star Trek III-B poster), but I'm not having much luck with it, so I'm going to do a very quick - and rough - sketch & marker job instead.

    I hope everyone else who's taking part is nearly finished? Only a couple of days left to get those entries in [​IMG]

    Oh, I wish I'd thought of that, @Starscape - I love it! [​IMG]

    I've given up on my sketch & markers job already, and gone back to the Paint effort. Should have something to show later/tomorrow morning.

    I‘m on the road tonight, but have an idea that I finally want to get to tomorrow. Can I get another day, pretty please? :)

    Absolutely, @Michael! I've still got some finishing touches (i.e. trying to mask all the rough edges) to put to mine that I'll work on tomorrow, so another day it is :D

    I've done just about as much faffing about with it as I can be bothered (and have time for), so here's mine:

    Thank you! Still ended up needing some extra time, even with your extension, but now I’m finally done.

    I probably did this a little wrong, not sure, my first thought when I saw the theme was doing something with “Threshold”, which to me always felt like some classic body horror flick instead of a serious sci-fi story. So that’s what I wanted to portray with the poster; i.e. make it look like an 80s/90s horror movie poster as much as possible …

    That looks hilarious! And I didn’t even know the original movie this is based on. [​IMG]

    Ha ha haaa! Great find, @Laura Cynthia Chambers!


    ~ It's brilliant! Definitely worth the wait. The genre swap is entirely within the outline of the theme, so in my opinion, you haven't done it wrong, you've done it "wrong" as required.

    ~ Thanks, Michael. I'm glad the humour comes across - I'm not sure how well known the comedy Carry On films are outside the UK, so this was a bit of a gamble.

    I'll put the voting thread up in a bit.
