First we want to thank everyone who was involved in the costume contest as there were some really astoundingly well put together costumes this year and we hope that they will put as much effort and love in to next year's contest as we plan on making this an annual thing (hence the 2nd Annual). We were really blown away by both the quality of the costumes and the turnout for the voting. There were over three times the number of votes cast for this year's contest as there were for last year. I think that everyone should give themselves a big round of applause and a nice firm pat on the back before we announce our winners ... really go ahead ... alright, now that everyone is in the spirit of congratulations, our top three vote getters for the General Category and our top 3 vote getters for the Youth Category are as follows:
1st Place goes to Tony as The Ghost Buster2nd Place goes to Dan as Black Bolt, King of the Inhumans
3rd Place goes to Blake as The Mindflayer1st Place (Youth Category) goes to Conner, Taylor & Ryan as The Red Hot Chili Peppers
It was really fun to have everyone wandering around in costume carrying comics and we definitely want to make this a part of the Fantasy Shop Calendar, but in order to do that you all will have to keep wowing us with your costumes!
2nd Place goes to Anne as Zatanna3rd Place goes to Ahmad as The Green Reaper
Once again we want to thank all the participants and everyone who took the time to vote in the contest. We really want to make next year even better so get thinking about what you're going to put together and then get started! Let's see if we can have some repeat champions for next year!
