Thee is something about making these awards that I love. For this particular bout, it was a double header. Our leagues travel B team, Wipeouts and Wasteland Derby Dames for the first game and the Topanga Maulrats and Reseda Wreckers, a home team rivalry for the second (I played in the second as a Topanga Maulrat)

There was no "real" theme so I just chose something from the Dollar Tree and went from there
I had spare wheels and asked my dad to make the stand. So he mounted them using a dowel rod. I originally found a dinosaur, but saw the robots and yeah?! who doesn't love robots?
We screwed the robot into the wheels and sprayed them gold. I love the way they came out.
For the second bout, which was near and dear to my heart and wanted to resemble both teams.
The Reseda Wreckers have a bomb (see above grey shirts) as a mascot.
I found these plastic ornaments at Michaels. My dad made the bottom base with a groove and a cork for the "fuse." I painted the bombs black and base red for there colors. What do you think?
So, the rats were last and they were harder to think of because its not halloween and plastic rats are not readily available. So my hubby and I made the rats out of clay, yup clay. Sprayed them black and purple base. They were a little unstable and wet so I should have planned ahead. Oh well.
All the girls and there awards.
I really like making awards.
