Lena's transformation is complete! The entries for the Beautiful Creatures  Light or Dark contest showcased Lena, a caster faced with the choice of Light or Dark, in the midst of making her selection. Lena wasn't the the only one with a tough decision to make! Judges and authors of the Beautiful Creatures  novels Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia had the difficult task of determining the top five winners from our 25 Semi-Finalists. Check out Lena as Light and Dark, as well as our top winner who clinched an all-expenses paid trip to Los Angeles, CA among other amazing prizes!

Judges' Comments

We each chose this piece for the Grand Prize without even discussing it; We found it to be true to the Lena of our novels as well as the film. We noted the charm necklace, the Chucks, the "Caster breeze" in the dynamic, curling hair, and the "naturalist" element with the doves. Well done!

Judges' Comments

This piece so nearly won the Grand Prize! The degree of detail in the paper cutting is so incredible, and the single splash of color in Lena's heart is perfect. Lena is very "Natural" here, but perhaps less dynamic in the piece we ultimately selected for the Grand Prize. Still, well done!

So cute, and so Lena. Clutching her notebook while the world turns into chaos around her. We really found this piece to be charming.

The technical detail - as well as the character detail - in this piece was overwhelming. We love the way the light hits Lena's face, and the charm necklace wrapped in her hair. Bravo!

Judges' Comments

We loved the "turning Lena on her head" idea - because so often she does feel like her world is upside down, and like she's changing into something terrifying. A not very beautiful creature! This one gave us nightmares! Amazing.
