The winners of this contest are as follows:
In addition to the winners, an honorable mention goes out to mieljolie
for her version of Arnold the Pygmy Puff.
The first place winner will also receive custom avatar made by Leaky's own Crafty Wizard, Glowingnargle.
Many congratulations to all!
Thanks,everyone,for the kind remarks about the Potions Book. I was really lucky to find the perfect old chemistry book from 1960 at the Goodwill. It was full of the most gruesome photos; plus it had that portait of “The father of modern chemistry” who made a great Nicolas and Perenell Flamel!!
But there were two really amazing coincidences: first the authors name—-L. Jean BOGERT!!! and second, you can see on page one that the author mentions both “the philosphers stone” and “the elixer of life”!!!! It was tons of fun to enter the contest and I’d like to encourage everyone to try it next time! Thanks again for your kind comments. katandcon
the book! I mean, Luna’s hat is fabulous (if I tried anything like that I’d end with at least four ugly sunflower masks..), but I love the Advanced Potion Making book… so thorough!
