Fans help William Shatner create a 6,000-photo mosaic tribute to Spock
This was a GISHWHES scavenger hunt win.
Shatner used more than 6,000 selfies to create the beautiful mosaic of Nimoy’s character Spock, which he sent to the Guinness World Records for consideration. The project was just one of the amazing creations made by Shatner’s GISHWHES team this year. GISHWHES, short for Greatest Internet Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen, is an online global scavenger hunt created by Supernatural actor Misha Collins that benefits Collins’ non-profit charity Random Acts.
Fans also created a number of other geeky items as part of the team. Anyone who wasn’t able to send in a selfie could still honor the actor by creating a tribute to the late Nimoy.
Star Wars fans got in on the fun by baking Princess Leia’s portrait in bread. Anyone who preferred not to open the oven could still get geeky with condiments and try another task calling for the creation of an Iron Man or Robert Downey, Jr. portrait made of salt and pepper.
You could even get creative with My Little Pony, morphing an image of your favorite actor to look like one, tweeted it with the hashtag #Shatnermademedoit, and trying to get that actor to retweet it. Shatner retweeted a number of ponies created to look like him.
GISHWHES 2015 ended over the weekend. Now Shatner and his team just have to sit back and wait to see if they’ve won.
