One thing that might be cool would be a one year subscription to the Stan Winston School. It would also be neat to get a sponsor like Smooth-On. I know a lot of people that would like to try different types of molding and casting but the materials can get to be really expensive. Another item that would be really useful for a Halloween crafter would be a Silhouette cutter.

Of course there's always the usual big ticket items like 3D printers, laser cutters and laptops too... an Othermill would be really sweet.

How about a fog machine as a prize? Large ones run around $100 and could be used as main prizes, while small ones can be as little as $30. Fog fluid on average costs $7 (1 L bottle) to $15 (1 Gallon Bottle). I hope this is a good prize suggestion, as I love my fog machines, and I know other people would love them too!

...Of course I plan on entering... Muhahaha!...
