:iconikilleditplz::iconsaysplz: YES INDEED!!!! :nod:

We have now concluded our very :heart: pride and joy,

the :flame: 6th ever Lugosiana!!!! :woohoo:

Especially for the purpose of this contest have the judges been

imported from the non-Wi-Fi area in the Carpathian mountains, briefly reanimated,

tenderly drowned in blood and champagne - and only then have they agreed to
- under pain of immediate sunlight :sun: - come to an unanimous decision;

here's the result of their Moot!!! :fuzzydemon:

:star: :star: :star: 1st place and 1200 points: :iconharlequinqb: with his work:

The Monster the Bride and the Bat by HarlequiNQB :iconfearmeplz:

In our modern day and age the ''three for the price of one'' is just too good an offer!!! :giggle:

Since this group has strong ties to all three characters, your work represents and perfectly captures

the very Spirit of Lugosi-camaraderie! (... So it's really FOUR for the price of one! ;))

:star: :star: 2nd place and 400 points: :iconelef8eria: with her work:

the blood is the life by elef8eria :iconwooooplz:

An utmost creepy depiction of THREE iconic bloodsuckers, coming to get us from the darkness of our minds! :faint: (Hail to the undead!)

:star: 3rd place and 400 points: :iconchaosfive-55: with his work:

Her Tainted Lips...
Beware the darksome maid, Shavaughn,
Who stalks barefoot across the lawn
From her cold dark-veinéd marble tomb
To gnaw your soul and seal your doom...
She casts her spells of madness wild,
This strange and lovely woman-child
Whose long dark tresses and pale skin
Conceal the horrors that lurk within...
Her tainted lips part in such a smile
That would make Van Helsing run a mile--
O, linger not! Beware her eyes!
In love and dread her victim dies
As her impish laugh rings through the night
In macabre, wicked, pure delight...

Our by now *resident haunt* :D came through once more with a blood curdling rhyme! :w00t: (Thank you, Jeff! :rose: )


:bulletyellow: :holly:

Sincerely, thank you,:blowkiss:esteemed horror enthusiasts, :furious: for being here with us

and especially for helping us in bringing another successful year to its close -
as the new one, full steam ahead ~ begins! :holly: :santa::iconexitplz:

Greetings from the Gory Other Side,

ever faithfully,

:bulletblack: He did: 1.) theatre (minor, supporting and main roles), 2.) silent movies (even with Murnau!), 3.) the talkies: three of them in colour (of which two survive as such). Most of the early movies are reported to be *lost*.

:bulletblack: Statistics from his theatre Dracula, Los Angeles Times, 1928:

a.) Faintings: 110.
b.) Shrieks: 20 per performance.
c.) Husbands summoned to escort wives home: 10 per performance. (What were those wives doing there all alone ... :))

:bulletblack: Self parodied the ''blood thirsty bogeyman'' on many occasions (so did Christopher Lee --> :bulletred:…). Might be convenient to ask - why is the great cape so difficult to shake off :furious:. (Minus the fangirls.)

:bulletblack: --- April 20, 1932: Béla Lugosi did a laugh-clown-laugh stunt at the Carthay Circle theatre the other night. He tripped back stage, fell and broke three ribs, but went on with his performance of ''Murdered Alive''. (Oh, the irony!)

:bulletblack: Played all THREE Universal characters: Dracula & The Monster & *A* Werewolf (which bites Talbot).

P.S.: a friendly advice: forget what you saw in ''Ed Wood'' (1994) and read the books :above:. For accurate Edward D. Wood Jr. portrayal see ''The Haunted World of Edward D.Wood Jr.''(1996) - fairly made and with respect towards ALL involved + instructive commentary: :bulletred:
