2012 Halloween Costume Contest


All I can say is... Wow! The level of great costumes has really been raised this year. They are clever, inventive, funny, scary, even sexy -- and many of them very well made from scratch. Overall, an amazing effort this year.

There can only be one winner, however, and it was a very difficult choice indeed.

The winner this year is: Ghost of Michael Jackson from Bill Freitag. It is at once clever, funny, and very well thought out and put together. Congratulations, Bill!

A big thank you to everyone who entered the contest with your superb costumes!

I've made my choice... which one is YOUR favorite?
