Header Quiz Results!

So, the quiz is closed, the votes counted. Let’s see how you did.

For those who don’t know what this post is all about – I recently ran a quiz where visitors had to guess the identities of the silhouetted figures in my header. For more information click here. Before we get to the winners I would like to thank everyone who took part in this, I had a greater response than I was expecting and it was pretty exciting to see all of your different guesses coming in, thanks!

Congratulations!
And now it’s time to see the winners!

We have a tie between Fernando of Committed to Celluloid and Caroline O’Mahoney (https://twitter.com/omahoney_x)  both getting 8 out of 9 correct! Congratulations to both of you, that’s a great score!

If you haven’t made any guesses yet,  and would like to for fun, then flick your eyes to the top of the screen and see who you recognise before reading any further. Because here are   the answers:

A   A-  is the Xenomorph /Alien from the Alien series. It seems that this one was pretty recognisable with a whopping 87.5% of you correctly guessing it.

 

 

 

BB – is James Bond (Sean Connery). People also did well here with another 87.5% score.

 

 

 

CC – is Sally Bowles from Cabaret. This was in my opinion the toughest one on here,and the 12.5% result goes some way towards confirming that. Most of you went for Chaplin as your guess here, which is completely understandable.

 

 

 

DD – is Marilyn Monroe. More of you guessed this one than I expected, and the success score came in at 62.5%. It clearly still proved tricky for a number of you though.

 

 

 

EE – is Darth Vader from the Star Wars series. 100% of you managed to guess this one correctly, which was completely unsurprising!

 

 

 

FF – is The Bride from Kill Bill. 62.5% of you managed to guess this one, with the other guesses being perhaps the most varied and wide ranging of them all.

 

 

 

GG – is Edward from Edward Scissorhands. 37.5% of you guessed this one correctly, whilst nearly everyone else thought that it was Helena Bonham Carter. I can totally see the Carter similarity, and bizarrely that guess is still linked to Tim Burton.
Without Edward’s hands visible this one was a little tricky I’ll admit, but it seemed that the hair was recognisable enough  for some of you to guess right.

 

 

HH – is Maude Lebowski from The Big Lebowski. Only 12.5% of you managed to get this one correct. I had to get my favourite actress Julianne Moore on here somehow, and not only is this probably the most recognisable silhouette of her that exists, it’s also from a great film.

 

 

II – is Frank from Donnie Darko. 87.5% of you recognised his figure, which was a relief as I really wasn’t sure how well he would do here. There was no way I was going to do a sihouette quiz set in a cinema and not include Frank. Anyone who has seen the film will understand why.

 

 

And here they are together again:

  1. D is definitely Ronald McDonald!!!!!! 🙂

    1. Haha! I really wanted to comment on that when you emailed me, but obviously I couldn’t! I’ve never heard Marilyn compared to him before 😀

  2. I didn’t guess, but anyone who said Charlie Chaplin for C should be given credit. Even after you said Sally Bowles from Cabaret, I still don’t see it.

    This was a fun idea. You should do more like this!

    1. I know it’s a tough one, I’m still impressed that 12.5% of the votes got it right!
      Thank you, as people seemed to enjoy this I’m considering continuing it on in someway. I’ve got a couple of ideas 🙂

  3. Yay, I won! 😉 I thought C was for sure Charles Chaplin! Well, 8 out of 9 is still very good 😉 Thanks for doing this!

    1. No problem! C certainly was deceptive, I figured everyone’s minds would jump straight to Chaplin and so I was surprised when some people figured it out!

  4. I can’t believe I missed this quiz! I can even tell you the specific xenomorph!! That’s my aunt Norah!

    1. Well I may be continuing this on in some form – perhaps another relative of yours may turn up one day!

  5. Damn, these are really clever! I saw The Big Lebowski around 15 times and I would never guess this is Maude!

    1. Haha, she certainly is one of the tougher ones on there! I expected that she would receive few correct guesses, along with Sally Bowles from Cabaret. I expected Marilyn to be there as well but it seems even that fairly unremarkable silhouette was good enough for some people!

    2. Also, keep your eyes on that header. I’m thinking of doing an extension of this in some way come February. 🙂
