Now that the GISHWHES winners have been announced— not my team, alas— we’re now allowed to share the pictures, videos, and stories of why and how this scavenger hunt changed the lives of thousands of people. There will be blog posts over the coming days that share my favorite items and stories, but to start, I want to give something to you— in the spirit of GISHWHES, something that meant so much to me.
I want to give you my sculpture of Jensen Ackles.
This bad boy is lovingly hand-made from organic California raisins and hot glue. Note the attention to detail in his lovingly-rendered bedhead. Jensen now has a bit of trouble standing up on his own; I’m assuming the drying out of the raisins is leading to a changing shape. But my husband has insisted we display this amazing bust prominently in our study, and I would like it to go to a loving home.
(Side note: I was genuinely surprised how many guys told me that it was “sexy” that I was so in to this scavenger hunt. Really? This is attractive? Because there is a whole subculture of women willing to make raisin-portraits of TV stars who would love to go out with you.)
STEPS TO WIN JENSEN ACKLES:
- Comment on this post (using an email you check)
- Be from the US (I don’t want to look up raisin import laws to Argentina or anything)
- Wait for MY BIRTHDAY (January 7th), when I will announce the winner and email for your mailing address!
This is an ORIGINAL WORK OF ART, people. A chance like this doesn’t come around every day.
