Hanford's entry in MySpace's Design Your Own Nightmare Before Christmas Character contest was announced today as the winner! The contest was run as a promotion for the new 3D version that's out in theaters. Here is Hanford's winning character:



Hanford created this character, using the contest's online character-creator tool as a starting point, and adding the finishing touches in Photoshop (you can read more about how he created it
here, in a blog post on his MySpace account). There were more than 1,600 entries, and the filmmakers judged Hanfords to be the best, which is pretty darned cool. One of the prizes he won was a video from Tim Burton, congratulating him on his win, which is also pretty darned cool.

You can see Hanford's entry on the MySpace profile for The Nightmare Before Christmas here, and you can watch Tim Burton's congratulatory message on Hanford's profile here.

Congratulations, baby!

Nice work, cap'n.
When Burton hires you for his next film, make sure he puts a tiki in it somewhere.

is the 3D version still playing, I dodn't think it is around here anymore, I think it got replaced by HappyFeet or something. Man, I didn't see the re-release and I going to be kicking myself for the rest of my life.

Don't worry about it teaKey. You didn't miss much. It was exactly like the original except it was in 3D. Glorious, engulfing, mesmerizing 3D.
