The nearest mall to our house is Barton Square Mall. I don't think the mall itself is actually square, as it seems to have many jutting-out points. The name must mean something else.
Due in no part to this confusion, but due mostly for my disdain of retail and the fact that I am not a fan of crowds, either, I typically avoid the mall. There is a bright spot: The Godiva kiosk. I am a member of their fancy club and therefore get one free truffle a month. But even this isn't enough to bring me to the mall on that regular a basis. In fact, the last chocolate I claimed was in the month of August, when I also got $10 of free stuff because it was my birthday.
But tonight, we went to the mall! There was a special reason: A fund-raiser called CANstruction. Local clubs, businesses, and groups get sponsors to donate (or donate themselves) cans of food which they first use to build something and then donate to a local food bank.
So, without further ado, here are the entries. The judging had been completed when we went, but I don't know that they'd awarded anything. It was neat to see all of them, anyway...
|St. Basil's Cathedral!|
|A tie-dyed shirt.|
|A TIE Fighter and R2D2.|
|From the back.|
|Bulldozer "leveling out" hunger.|
|Neat detailing on the main and reigns.|
|Hunger Busters. This one is really good, even though it looks simple. 3D, clean lines. Pretty amazing.|
|That's no moon!|
|Pooh Bear with a "hunny" pot stuck on his head.|
|I guess he's sleepy?|
|Ursula from "The Little Mermaid."|
|A whale of a tale? No. The tail of a whale.|
