DRUMROLL PLEASE…

The results of our Green Halloween Costume Contest [2] are finally in! Thank you to everyone who entered – we couldn’t be more psyched about the amazing homemade entries we got pouring in. It wasn’t easy, but we finally narrowed it down to 15 fabulous finalists [3] and then left it up to YOU to choose your favorites. So with out further ado, here are the winners!


GRAND PRIZE GOES TO…IT’S A TIE!

Due to a glitch in our voting system, we had two outstanding costumes that had such a close number of votes that we had to declare it a toss-up. So congratulations to both Cheshire Cat [4] AND Optimus Prime [5]!!!

Congratulations to Optimus Prime [5]! You dazzled our readers with your incredible rendition of the world’s most popular autobot and got a whopping 309 votes by making a costume that actually transforms!

GRAND PRIZE GOES TO: CHESHIRE CAT


You bewitched us with your sly grin and clever costume made out of all recycled materials [4]. This was honestly one of the most expertly executed costumes we’ve ever seen. Congratulations!

Both of our Grand Prize winners will receive a $100 Gift Certificate [6] to the Inhabitatshop [7] and a BoGolight solar-powered flashlight [8] – with every BoGolight purchased in the U.S., another one will be donated to people in developing countries.

2nd PLACE GOES TO: WALL-E


One of the world’s most famous and beloved robots came to life in this super-detailed costume – we almost couldn’t believe our eyes at how closely this resembles Wall-E in the movie! We guess our readers agreed that Wall-E [9] deserved some accolades because 122 of you voted for him.

EDITOR’S CHOICE AWARDS

HEADLESS MARIE ANTOINETTE


Could there be a more haunting and lifelike Marie Antoinette costume [10]? We think not. The gown, the gore and even Marie’s expression caught our attention and made this costume a winner.

CORK TREE

This superbly-crafted costume gets extra points for sheer level of difficulty. We’re not sure how many hours you spent on your costume but, it’s absolutely ingenious (especially the squirrel placement)!
