by

Oh boy, did we get a lot of people entering the second annual Major Spoilers Costume Contest.  There were over 50 entries from 20 entrants (yes, some people entered multiple times).  Personally, I think all those who entered the contest deserve kudos for taking the time to make their costume and sending it out for the world to see.  You can tell some of the entrants spent a great deal of time on their costumes, and really get into their work.

Without further ado, take the jump to see all the entrants for this year’s contest.

UPDATE:  Voting is now open!

UPDATE #2:  WINNER ANNOUNCED!

Once again, we had multiple Batman entries

Yes, this is a Batman entry and not a Poison Ivy entry.  Ivy is simply a prop for this entrant, as she won last year’s contest with her Catwoman costume.

Can’t have a contest without Wonder Woman!

And Donna Troy

But don’t think this is a DC only contest, as there were plenty of Marvel characters too.

There’s also an army of Iron Men!  Thanks to Brent Williamson for taking the time to work with kids in his area to make up these costumes!

Should I be concerned there were more people dressed as villains than heroes?

This year Major Spoilers also had more than a few movie and television entrants…

And it is always nice to see someone enter who is actually a character from video games.

And don’t forget the rest of the comic scene

Alas, William Shatner did not take us up on the challenge to enter the contest dressed as Kirk.

So who made the finals?  I have to say all the entrants were really good.  So good that we here at the Major Spoilers HQ are still tabulating the our top 5.  Those finalists will be announced tomorrow, along with the opening of the Major Spoilers Costume Contest voting system, where you, yes you get to decide who will win the grand prize.

Thanks again to everyone who entered.  Those who didn’t, now have 360 days until the deadline for the Third Annual Major Spoilers Costume Contest.
