[CONTEST] Win a 3D Skull Device Case

THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED! Thank you for participating!

Now a days, everyone has a phone and computer of some sort. Many people like to personalize some of their devices with cases. Hugo Arcier teamed up with Sculpteo, a 3D printing service, to create two skull cases inspired by his art series called "Degeneration", based on a faces reducing algorithm. The detailed skull highlights the printing layers while the degenerated one is a kind of tribute to the mesh triangles. Sculpteo is giving away two customized skull device cases, to two Skull-A-Day fans!

Detailed Skull


Degenerated Skull


PRIZE INFO: 2 Skull Cases (one per winner).
The case can be customized to the winner's needs based on available options. The cases are available in the two skull designs, Detailed and Degenerated. The cases are available for these devices, iPhone3G, iPhone4/4S, iPhone5, Samsung Galaxy Note II, Samsung Galaxy SII, Samsung Galaxy SIII. They can be made in multiple colors, black, white, pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, gold, and brown. A color reference chart will be emailed to the winner, for selection. The cases can also be engraved with text up to 8 characters maximum.

HOW TO ENTER: Since the cases are used to cover devices that are used to contact people, to enter this contest, answer this question in a comment. What deceased person or people would you contact, if you could? For example, I might contact Anne Bonny and Mary Read, to ask them what it was like being two female pirates together.

CONTACT INFO: The winner, chosen at random, will be contacted via email by one of the Skull-A-Day editors within 7 days of the end of the contest. If that winner doesn't respond, another winner will be chosen. With your comment, please INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS!!! Entries are only valid with this information.

WHERE TO ENTER: All entries must be made on this blog post, on Skull-A-Day.com. You CANNOT enter this contest by commenting on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+.

CONTEST CLOSES: 11:59:59 PM Eastern USA Time Friday, June 21, 2013.

NUMBER OF WINNERS: Two

PRIZE SHIPS: This contest is open to all skull lovers around the world.

IF YOU DON'T WIN: Don't fret, the customizable skull cases are available in Sculpteo's 3D Printed Cases Store. You can see what else Sculpteo is making on their Blog, Facebook, and Twitter. You can see what else Hugo Arcier is making on his Facebook, and Twitter.

In answer to the query: I'd contact William Wallace and find out if he thought Mel Gibson's portrayal of him and his antics was accurate.

Christopher Bourroughs said...

I would contact Bavarian Illuminati and ask him about the true purpose of his secret society Bourroughscl@gmail.com

Matt Hilend said...

I really dig the realistic one.
I would call Alexander Graham Bell, so I could tell him how far his little invention has come. From contact across the world to contacting the otherworld.

I would love to contact Joey Ramone as he was my 7 year old self's crush. Still is. I'd also like to chat with him about his obvious but, at the time, poorly recognized or treated, OCD.

I also like to call Johnny Ramone and tell him to shove his ego where... Well, you get the idea. Though he did the best for the band for a period even as a dictator.

Bob Mulholland said...

I have two answers for this one:

1. Frank Zappa - I'd be purely selfish and ask him to perform a song for me since I never had the chance to see him perform while he was alive. Doesn't matter what song, it'd be his choice.

2. Douglas Adams - I'd just want to thank him for writing that wholly remarkable book, the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, then tell him so long, and thanks for all the fish.

Abi said...

the list could get long, but the people that come to mind most immediately are Kurt Cobain, to tell him it really can get better; & Edgar Allan Poe, to let him know of the reverence he receives postmortem that he so deserved, but didn't get, in life.

evinumen said...

I have a mile long list of dead people I'd like to talk to, but if I had to choose in a jiffy, I would contact Hieronymous Bosch to ask him about the symbolism in his paintings.

RevEngine said...

I'd contact Dr. Hunter S. Thompson. In addition to the amazing life he led, I'd ask about the Aspen campaign for Sheriff under the Freak Power ticket, and if there is sensation or sentience after life, I'd ask what it felt like to be blown up / blown out of a cannon!

Sean Arbabi said...

Dj Stewart said...

I would contact Rodney Dangerfield, John Candy, Richard Pryor, and Goerge Carlin. I would ask them all the same question..."How much wood would a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood"? Why? Because too many people take shit way too seriously.

krysten s said...

I think I'll be completely honest with this one and say that I would contact my dad and older sister. Famous people are great and all, but I think I would enjoy talking with my family more!
If I had to pick someone famous though I think it would be Timothy Treadwell " Grizzly Man." He has always fascinated me. I wish I knew what, and everything he was thinking when he spent those summers at Katmai National Park. Just what random thoughts popped into his head, the things he wouldn't tell just anyone you know!

Mr.Bitterness said...

I would contact Nicolai Tesla and ask him his thoughts on the uses of his inventions Bluetooth and Wi-fi. I would probably get an earful because these are also things that he doesn't get credit for. Our conversation would then end with Tesla slamming the receiver down repeatedly trying to hang up on me, then realizing you have to push the"end call" button.

Maux said...

My choice would be to contact Vincent Price so we could exchange recipes. I've enjoyed him as an actor since I was wee. His first love was cooking and his 1966 cookbook is really interesting. He really got into the culinary arts, so I believe we'd have a long conversation for sure. :)

Pirates life said...

Id contact Bonnie and Clyde. Id ask them how they made their love work so well that they sacrificed themselves and kept doing what they were doing despite getting caught or killed.
