The following people will receive a authentic cheap, plastic trophy for their costume!
That's right! Authentically cheap AND plastic!
But the great part? NO ONE will get one just like it!
The trophy for "funniest" goes to Tyler for his child's Breaking Bad costume.
Second trophy "Scariest", so the Grim Reaper was chosen for this award.
And last, this award was chosen for the "Most Authentic" and was very difficult to chose a winner for.
What we was looking for was something that, if the character appeared right out of the comic, movie or game, is everything as it should be.
No fake parts or store bought items for the most part.
And that winner is Riker for his spot on impersonation of the Hunter from Left 4 Dead, even down to the pose.
Congrats to those last 3 who entered and a big thanks to those that did!
It was REALLY hard to choose from the entries this year as we almost TRIPLED the costumes from last year.
Remember, Free Comic Book Day is coming up in about 6 months, so start working on those costumes now!
