Congratulations! I guess I can get rid of the cramp from keeping my fingers crossed for a week now. :paperbag:

You have to go to a RenFest soon to show it off. It's the season. (Or have a party, or at least post some photos!) Good for you! I can still hoping for the next one, and I WILL take it around with me. Shameless!

(Anything to promote the film!)

Congrats to you HeySailor on your win of the Sword. Swing it with pride. :clap:

:rant: I really wanted to try and win one of these, but alas I could end up in jail trying to smuggle it into Canada. Now if Orlando was attached to it, that would definitely be worth the risk. :ph34r:

Luv ya, :heart:

Wahey! Well done Heysailor! Congratulations! :cheer:

Judi, is it still definitely not open to non-US residents? Did you see my post about my lord of the rings sword which got through customs fine as long as it is labelled as a replica?

Thank you all for the kind congratulations! And a big thank you ka-Bloom and Museum Replicas for sponsoring the contest. :hug:

I've been contemplating how to keep the sword out of the hands of my 15 year old son; it'll be that little push that he needs to keep working on his chainmail. Perhaps we could display it on the wall next to the movie posters. Or, with my moniker, HeySailor, I could chuck RL and consider becoming the next Dread Pirate Roberts in some sunny warm climate. I'd love to have it autographed by Liam or Orlando but I'm not certain that I'd be able to get it past the metal detectors and security personnel.

All kidding aside, the Sword of Ibelin will be treated with the utmost care and respect that this finely crafted replica deserves. Thank you all. :wave:

Kyle, what we said was that the competition was open to all, but that we would only ship within the USA. I included the overseas entries in the draw and it was just coincidence (and the law of probability since the vast majority of the entries were from the USA) that there was a US winner.

Same for next week.

Hey, I resemble that! :huh: I never had to have more than 2 stitches.at a time. My Indian name is NOT Runs-With-Scissors; it's Throws-Like-A-Girl (no offense to any Native Americans. The Indian names are a YMCA Indian Guide thing). Little known fact about HeySailor: Cub Scout Leader for 9 years.one-handed knot-tying in the dark comes in handy on occasion. :rolleyes:

The sword isn't really sharp, is it? Or is it THAT authentic?

Naw, not the hubby; he's a Keeper. The kids perhaps. :whistle:

Remind me to bring it to the next Chicago ka-bloomie get together. :hug:

Yeah, and don't run up and hug anyone with it. Just remember this:

:( I wasn't saying anything about this weeks draw at all, nor insinuating only US residents had been included in it. Please forgive me for making it look like this! :(:hug:

I was saying it in response to the post I made after the initial comment about the difficulties of shipping it. I asked a few posts later I believe if it was thus not open to non-US residents but did not get a reply, so presumed so.

Sorry about the confusion, and once again congratulations to this weeks winner. :)

I know exactly what you mean. Just be careful when you're waving that thing around, you don't want any 'accidents'. :wink:
