I am extremely disappointed in the riot judges. I don't mean to be cruel to those who did earn honorable mentions, but I saw many other entries in the introduction thread that I personally believe are more deserving - in the very least, for being three dimensional as opposed to two dimensional, because I know how much extra effort that requires.
I will never participate in another edible competition, or probably any other kind of competition either. Call me butt-hurt, but I feel warranted in being upset for wasting 3 whole days of my vacation and not even getting mentioned next to a carbon-copy of the competition advertisement image. I will be compiling my own gallery of submissions that I believe should have been honorable mentions.
In the meantime, here is my submission.
I'm very sorry to all of us who didn't make it.
