The #LEGODarkArts Riddikulus winners

What a ridiculous task it was to pick the winners of the #LEGOdarkArts Riddikulus contest! There were just so many amazing entries, but eventually we have the winners.

Toy Photographers, together with Cheepjokes, Frost Bricks, and Stuck In Plastic are excited to announce the winners of LEGO’s #LEGODarkArts Riddikulus contest!

The contest was to create a fun and creative before/after scene showing the effect of the Riddikulus charm. The entry must consist of two elements; first showing a scene with a Boggart in the shape of something frightening – then show the scene after the Riddikulus charm has been cast.

Grand Prize

Congratulations @fourbrickstall for your wonderful “Apiphobia. A-P-I-P-H-O-B-I-A. Apiphobia.” Entry. Turning the frightening bees into a spelling bee in such a delightfully creative and beautifully photographed images really captured our collective eyes, and imaginations.

  1. Woohoo! Thank you! This was a tough challenge for me.

    Even just trying to find an amusing way to transform a fear was hard because on top of the contest rules, I had my own: no clothes change gags.

    I’m glad my spelling bee pun worked! The alternative was doing something with the Bee Gees but I couldn’t get beards on the bees LOL.

    Again, a tough contest to come up with original concepts for — and build for — so my hat off to all the photographers who entered.
