    I have to give it to MODOK. I’m curious about how he/she was able to move in that thing.

    Tough choices this year! Awesome job, everyone!

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

    They are all awesome, but I have to give it up for Jinx . . . her hair makes me think of cotton candy.

      What’s Jinx from? The girl’s super cute, but I don’t know what the character is from.

    This is an amazing group. I am sure Stephen and the gang had a hard time choosing the top seven.

    Tough Call, but I think the Warlock costume is outstanding.
    Congrats to all.

    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.

    @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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    All these costumes are simply amazing!
    Its the Costumers that make all the Comic Conventions really special!

    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?

    For those of you that may be offended that Lady Blackhawk is “begging for votes” She is clearly not the only one. So stop your griping and just vote for the COSPLAY you like

    • November 1, 2011 at 1:23 pm — Reply

      Polling for votes is not, and to my knowledge, has never been against the rules. This is not the first time it’s happened, and I’d say it won’t be the last.

    People campaign for votes… that’s the normal. Gotta let people see you!
