With all the fantastic entries in this year’s Major Spoilers Costume Contest it was hard to narrow the field down to five… in fact, we couldn’t. The voting at the Major Spoilers HQ was so close that we ended up with seven finalists for this year’s competition.

Who are they? Take the jump to find out!

NOTE: These are in no particular order, and do not represent any internal ranking.









Who is going to win an iPad 2?  That’s up to you! We’ve narrowed it down, but it is up to you to pick the winner.  You have until the end of the day on October 31, 2011 to cast your vote, and we’ll announce the winner on the November 01, Major Spoilers Podcast.

    • Yeah, I didn’t realize anyone was in there though. Also, he must’ve had one helluva time looking through the back issue bins.

  1. Warlock should be disqualified for using such a terrible low res postage stamp image.

    I much prefer the Scarlet Witch you featured yesterdayover Warlock.

    Couldn’t they have provided a higher res image. you can’t see any of the details.
    It could be an action figure for all I can tell from that.

  2. @OS Perry, that is DEFINITELY a real guy in there! I posed with him for about 15-30 mins during the SCF Marvel Universe photoshoot at this year’s Dragon*Con, and the costume is just great in person. You know a costume’s good when it makes you wonder if it’s actually an action figure and not a person, right?

    Gah. All of these are awesome. Going to be tough to pick just one. Way to take over again, SCF!

    the competition gets fiercer each year! I think this is the first time I haven’t known straight away who I wouldn’t vote for. Whilst that’s the best Deadpool costume I’ve ever seen and the Super-Adaptoid looks like it just stepped off the page; Mr. Freeze has an unnerving simplicity to it that gets my vote.

  4. I think they’re all pretty cool, but Lady Blackhawk pips it to the post, simply because she is one of the most gorgeous women I have ever seen in my life!

  5. All the costumes look fantastic, thanks to final seven and others for all the time and hard work that went into their costumes. WOW, hard for me to vote. Narrowed it down to Lady Blackhawk and Jinx had to do it the DC Two-Face way by the flip of a coin. Lady Blackhawk wins.

  6. Damn impressive all around, it’s hard to pick a favorite. But I went with MODOK because I’ve never seen such a huge and intricate Halloween costume before. And it’s absolutely convincing.

  7. Howard Campbell on

    Lady Blackhawk all the way! Avril has put together the most authentic Lady Blackhawk costume I’ve seen, and she’s nailed Zinda’s look beautifully! Plus, she’s one of the nicest people you’d ever hope to meet!

  8. I (the Super-Adaptoid guy) am honored to be included in this selection of truly excellent costumes. Happy Halloween, everybody – you all look great!

  9. I don’t understand why Mr Freeze has so few votes. Granted they’re all amazing costumes, but for me, Mr. Freeze really captures the character as he appears in Batman: TAS. My only explanation is that he looks too good, and so people assume that he just took a photo of an action figure. He has my vote though!

    • I can only speak for myself, but I tend to vote for obscure characters that are done well. I have never seen anyone do a Super Adaptoid costume before and it was amazingly done. I thought the Mr. Freeze costume and Deadpool and really, well, everyone else’s costumes were great too. The characters I see the most tend to not get my votes though, even if they’re amazingly accurate. Such as characters like Wolverine, Deadpool, Stormtroopers, Riddler, Joker, the ones I see in such abundance that even when I see a brilliant looking costume, much like Deadpool up above, I tend to go past for something I was never expecting to see. And unfortunately for me, I didn’t know what Jinx was or I might’ve voted for her. lol

      • That’s fair reasoning, but with Deadpool at the top at the time of posting, I don’t think that’s the reason he’s gotten so few votes. Still, whoever wins, they’re all excellent costumes, and any one of them will be a worthy winner!

  10. My own personal opinions of the superheros/villians aside: All of the costumes are fantastic! It is such a breath of fresh air to see people taking the time to make costumes true to the characters.

    On a seperate note: Lady Blackhawk rocks!! Good luck!

    • Thanks for letting me know, I’ll have to drop some votes for her. Not everyone can afford an iPad, I know I can’t but if I had a chance to win one I’d beg and plead for votes. Lol. I wanna be like Stephen, I want an iPaaaad.

      • I don’t see why someone can’t ask/say “Vote For Me!” cause saying it isn’t garaunteeing that they’ll actually get the vote. I’m sure Deadpool and the others have done the same thing on their own messageboards/networking sites. And who’s to say she’s the one who posted it and not a fan?
