The Baltimore Comic-Con is happy to announce the winners of our 7th Annual Costume Contest. The contest took place this past Saturday, September 26th, 2015 for both amateur and professional adults, and Sunday, September 27, 2015 for kids. Visually stunning costumes ranged from classic superheroes to video game and movie characters and beyond, and our contest has proven to be one of the most anticipated events at the show.
This year’s costume contest separated amateur adults from professional adults, and held a separate contest for amateur kids as well.
The grand prize winner for Best Overall Costume in the professional category, and the recipient of the $1,000 cash prize, was Robert Tongue for his “Evil Tin Man of Oz” costume.
The grand prize winner for Best Overall Costume in the amateur category, and the recipient of the $500 cash prize, was Rick Castro for his “Master Chief” costume.
The grand prize winner for Best in Show for kids, and the recipient of the $100 cash prize, was Xavier for his “The Bubbler” costume.
Special thanks go to everyone who entered the contest and showed their support, as well as to our sponsor, StylinOnline.com and Master of Ceremonies, comedian Joe Bronzi!
