We had a huge response to this year’s Major Spoilers Costume Contest.  We received close to 90 entries this year, making this the largest contest we’ve had to date.  Over the next couple of days we will narrow these entries down to the Top 5, and then it will be your turn to vote for the grand prize winner!

Take the jump for the complete gallery of entrants!


The last couple of years, I took the time to break the entries down by character, along with my comments.  This year, because there are so many entries, I’m posting these as one giant gallery, so it’s easier to view (click on the thumbnail to make bigger!).

Thanks to everyone who entered this year, it’s great to see so many people interested dressing up as their favorite characters!

    • Yeah.

      My only nitpick (and it’s a minor one) is that one seems to have a bleeding costume. There’s fake blood and shredded fabric, but no “wounds” underneath. Otherwise, that’s a great and original take on the more traditional (and popular) pick.

  1. Plasticman is actually a friend of mine. There’s no photoshop, he really is that skinny and long in the body.

    Fingers crossed he’s getting a brand new costume done and coming to DragonCon next year.

  2. Massive love to the UK comic characters, specifically Tank Girl and the family of Judges. Hope the kid Judge has a shaved head under the helmet.

  3. Wow! Glad i don’t have to decide who the winner is. gotta say it’s nice to see familiar faces, especially familiar faces in new costumes! Ahh Comic book Cosplay, what a small world… :)

  4. While I’m not saying that it’s the best costume, I love the War Machine pushing a stroller image. And I will second the hotness of Mockingbird :)
