Kotaku Shop Contest: Mask-uerading, Winners! 

Week two after the Photoshop contest was resurrected from an Internet black hole, everyone has contributed some of their best (and worst) ideas in an effort to rediscover the contest’s former glory. I asked for you to share some alternate masks for Corvo and Emily on their campaign for blood thirsty revenge. We got some good disguises, some terrifying ones, and plenty of WTFs.

In the end, Ace Stanning proved to be the winner, because who doesn’t need more Daft Punk in their lives? Just imagine Corvo and Emily vibing through the streets of Karnaca on nothing but a blink and some intense EDM riffs.

But yo, the rest of you had some good ideas too! Tomorrow I’ll announce the rules for week three, but meanwhile let’s take a look at some of your other valiant attempts.

(Dis)Honorable Mentions

Over the hills and far away, Arayne has revealed Corvo’s final form.

Everyone needs to take care of their epidermis, even stealthy assassins. A hearty thank you to Drewpy for that important PSA.

Props to Riviera for the brilliant combination of color-coordinated terror.

I’m probably supposed to understand this one from Kurohei, but even though I don’t, I 100% appreciate the sentiment.

Sciteach reminds us that all good things eventually come to an end, including the star power of beloved 90s comics.

Mortal Dictata arrived at a mask so devastating in its bottomless contempt for deficits and the social safety net to make even the empire of the isles blush.

And that brings us to the end of the latest ‘Shop contest. As loyal devotees of the competition, feel free to drop me a line on what you’d like to see in the coming weeks or how I can make it better. And of course be sure to check back tomorrow for the next one.
