Finalists for the PoP Peep Project 2017 – Vote for your Favorite!!

by Prince Of Petworth May 8, 2017 at 4:00 pm 9 Comments


Wow. Did this turn out better than I expected. Holy cow. Of course, it made picking the finalists extremely difficult but I finally narrowed it down to nine. Now it’s your turn to pick the overall champion. The winners get taken out to dinner courtesy Carmine’s Family Style Italian Restaurant and drinks courtesy me. At first I was gonna give free t-shirts to the top three but I think I’ll just schedule a June happy hour and give free t-shirts to all who entered so stay tuned for that. So without further ado – here is the poll – which shall close at noon on Friday. We’re just a little neighborhood blog so please let’s be cool and use the honor system here: Please vote once and only once. Ed. Note: Of course you can tell your friends to vote for you but tell your friends to be cool too. Thanks to all who took the time to enter – your creations were amazing!

Without further ado:

    These are fantastic! I assume that any person can only vote once, right?

  • anon

    These are all awesome. It’s so hard to choose! Great work everyone who submitted!

  • eggs

    REALLY hard to choose! Great job to everyone!

  • KateKD

    Number seven got one hundred votes in the last hour! And hundreds today. I wonder what their secret is?

      I think there is some serious street-teaming/ballot-stuffing going on. Maybe next time the Prince should appoint himself as judge rather than determining the winners by voting.

      • Russia?

        Was about to say the exact same thing. How disappointing.

      • CDWilliamson

        But seriously, they went from having like 50 votes at this time yesterday to 872 (as of 9:10pm). Hmmm…

  • Tobi

    #3 got 200+ votes between 10pm and midnight … sounds about right

    I’m sorry to even complain here. Dan, you are a saint for keeping this alive, but there is something dispiriting about seeing this sort of ballot stuffing. I’m not the most active member on the site, but I love it and I can’t imagine the effort that the Popvillians (that sounds bad!) put into their designs. FWIW, and I’m only one vote, I’d support you just making a unilateral decision.
