Inhabitat’s Green Halloween Costume Contest received hundreds of incredibly crafted costumes – and after an intense bout of online voting we’re thrilled to announce our winners! From a ghastly Two-Face covered in gore to a life-size LEGO minifig and a hilarious bucket of cheese balls, our winners wowed us with their creativity and DIY skill. Hit the jump for the grand prize winner of a Kilo Glow bike from Pure Fix Cycles, our editors’ choice Nokero Solar Light Bulb winners, and our runners-up – all of whom scored organic cotton Inhabitat t-shirts!
Joseph Bertucci stole the show in our Green Halloween Costume Contest with his incredibly lifelike Two-Face villain costume! The dastardly ghoul will be speeding away from Batman on our grand prize – a glow-in-the-dark Kilo Glow bicycle from Pure Fix Cycles.
And the award for cheesiest costume goes to… Paul Zakrzewski for his hilarious bucket of cheese balls! Paul put play pit balls, felt, and a painted cake tin to good use in this creative costume modeled after the scrumptious snack.
Renee Adams snapped up an editors’ choice prize with her incredibly clever working camera costume. Yes, that’s right, the camera actually takes pictures and displays them on the back like a real digital camera! To make the costume Renee simply re-fashioned a cardboard box, covered it with felt, and affixed a lightweight LCD screen connected to an iPhone to the back.
It’s no secret that we’re big fans of LEGO bricks here at Inhabitat – and Brack Lee capitalized on the fact with his handcrafted LEGO zombie mini-figurine costume. This amazing brains-craving brick man is made from recycled foam rubber camping mats.
Robert Daurio got into the electoral spirit this Halloween with a costumed reenactment of our first president – with a twist. His George Washingmachine halloween costume came to life with a clever set of instructions: Step 1: Go Back in time. Step 2: Steal a uniform from a Revolutionary War soldier. Step 3: Return to present day. Step 4: Fabricate a washing machine from a cardboard box using a magic marker.
Rebecca Moreschi flew to the top of our list of finalists with her amazing peacock halloween costume, which is made from a set of recycled wood blinds. Best of all, the tail feathers can be worn down or up for added flourish.
