So, you say "Harry Potter And The Schmeathley Schmallows" got you a bit down? Are ya feeling kinda sorta peeved/angry/upset/borderlinehomicidal about what that limey bird did to our Fred? Well, just forget about it!
I'm here to announce a fun twinny contest we can all enjoy, grownups and underagers alike! I'm denying canon and getting over my Fred-sick blues with... WEASLEY TWIN COLORING!!!


It's a coloring contest! Click below to read all about it!

Here's how you play:
Below you'll find several drawings taken right out of the official "Harry Potter and the Order Of The Phoenix" coloring book. Drawn by official artists and all. It's so easy! All you have to do is:
1. Choose one and print it out.
2. Color it however you wish.
3. Scan your colored-in masterpiece.
4. Submit it to the comm in a post!
You can color the pages with colors as the scenes were in the film, or use your imagination, as I have in the example here:


Now of course Fred and George don't wear bright plaid golf pants, (that we know about, anyway!) I just did this as a demo of the limitless possibilities you have before you.
You can use any medium you wish: I used crayon here, but anything is cool: paint, crayons, pencils, digital media, whatever! Be creative! Channel the humor, whimsy, creativity and genius that is Fred and George to create a twinny artwork. Please refrain from changing the line art too much, this is a coloring contest, not a fanart challenge.


And here's the best part: The Prize! At the end of the contest, there will be a poll where members can vote for their favorite coloring job, and first prize is the new Fred & George figurines, (released in the UK only, mint in the box) to play with as you wish!
Yeah! WOOOO! This is my gift to twinfans everywhere who need a diversion from the general sadness and angst over that book. Submissions can be posted in twinspiration between August 20th and September 3rd. The poll will go up after the deadline closes, and the submission with the most votes wins!
So get coloring, twinfans, and have fun with Gred and Forge!

 
Here are the coloring book pages you may choose from: You are welcome to submit more than one page!










Toy Fred and toy George are waiting with untold mischievous mayhem for you to win them so they can play with you!

Great, thanks for offering that option to everyone! My scans aren't the best, just the best I could do with the equipment I've got.

Yes, anyone may enter, it's time to share some positive vibes around the twinternet, I think, and this silly fun is my harebrained scheme to do just that. Hope you play along! And yes, there is a coloring boo. These are all out of the "Giant Harry Potter Coloring Book" collection, which holds the coloring pages from all 5 films. There are two other twin pages, but these (above) are the best ones. The coloring book sells for about $6 I think, here in the US.

I would like to say that I went to Toys R Us by myself (I have no kids) just to find a harry potter coloring book a couple months ago :-D

I then FAXED every single image to my e-mail and uploaded them to myself, lol.

I have issues. (the links to the super huge images are now listed in another comment above)

Sept. 3rd you say. I'll have more time over the weekend to locate my art supplies and work on this. Why I even have art supplies is baffling!

Nah, I've got absolutely no skill with paint, I'd wind up ruining it.

I am hypnotized by your icon. Where did that come from? Not in the film that I recall! ;P

Could you try a computer paint program and enter that way? No scanner necessary. A few entries are in paint...
