    Well said. When I look at this, I don't see the kids as much as I see some uber-cool parents sharing their love for this hobby with the next generation and that is a truly awesome thing! Some day it may be some of the little tykes we see in this contest who are carrying on the torch and promoting this hobby! Kudos to all you parents (and kudos to your kids for putting up with it!):thumbsup

    I'm guessing these kids don't have any idea how lucky they are to have parents that can and will make costumes like these!

    Of all the categories this year, I think the children's category is the hardest one to choose a winner. There are some REALLY good costumes here incredible. Not to mention some of the poses are just too cute. Especially when done by a kid. Very tough to pick just one...

    WOW! Good job to all the parents and kids on these AWESOME costumes! It is just so hard to pick just one. Normally when you are voting on a costume contest, there is one CLEAR winner and some runners up... but this forum is nothing like that! There are soooo many good costumes! GOOD JOB EVERYONE!

    Hey, as Bumblebee's Mom, to me, it's all about sharing the love with the next generation. Matt is just as into this as I am, he helps with the construction, comes up with a lot of the mechanics and ideas himself. He picks the costumes he wants made too, and is a real trooper when it comes to the trying on pieces and parts dozens and dozens of times. He hates taking them off when it comes time to get out of them once they are done too, he's such a character! :) He's been in full cosplay since he was 5, he's 12 now, so I guess you could say it's part of life for us now. We've had a lot of kids go 'OMG! Your Mom is so cool!', and I've even had adults older than me say 'ADOPT ME!', but really I owe it to others who got ME into it and were my inspirations and to my parents who started me at an early age in costumes too. I'm just passing the tradition on. :) Without passing it to the next generation, we loose everything we stand for and love to do. I see a great future ahead in these kiddos!

    Hello everyone. I am sure you are wondering why we shut down the voting for the costume contest earlier today. If you have looked at the poll results, you are also probably wondering why all the numbers are drastically lower than they were earlier today.

    Late yesterday a couple of members recognized a loophole in the polling software that allowed non-members to vote repeatedly for a single entrant. We let it slide because it didn’t appear that anyone was taking advantage of that fact or skewing the contest results. Unfortunately that changed earlier today and got so bad that we were forced to stop the polls.

    Our initial intent was to allow both members and non-members vote in this contest, allowing entrants to encourage their friends as well as fellow board members to vote for them. However, because we can’t control non-members from exploiting this loophole and voting repeatedly, we have been forced to block non-members from voting and discounting all non-member votes.

    We are very sorry that it has come to this and that a few over-zealous non-members have ruined it for everyone. We are resuming the voting (keeping all members votes) but only allowing members to vote.

    To the entrants, you can still have your friends vote for you, but unfortunately, they will have to register to be able to vote. Thank you for your support and understanding.

    Because we had to stop the contest and lost a day, we are going to run the contest through Monday, Nov 14 and announce winners on Nov 15.

    Wow, much harder than the adults one!
    These kids are cool, but the passion the parents bring just make this contest brilliant!
    Although if you have the kids involved, it would make it so much more fun for everyone in the family.

    That really stinks that people ruin it for the rest of us. I had all my Facebook friends voiting and all the Hook movie fans from around the world voting because I posted a link on the Hook moive site. :cry

    Yeah, this was unfortuante. As much as I am a proud poppa of one of the entrants, I should have gotten my head out of the clouds to realize there's only so far the 'cute' vote could go with so many very impressive and wonderful costumes in this category. I just hope my social and work connections didn't botch this up for all. I shot my contacts an email this morning on the reasons the poll results have been scaled back and though I don't believe any of them had anything to do with it, I can't count out a few wanting to help a buddy out with no il-intention.
    Art, if you can identify my entry's involvement, I will gladly withdraw the entry because this was supposed to be fun for all--in every category--and I don't want my little boy to be a part of it if it wasn't honest.

    I'm so glad you've extended the voting, although I don't know how on earth I'm gonna pick which one I like the most.....it's a bit like asking which of your own kids is your favourite ;-P

    I've voted for one but I have to point out that I think all the kids are winners cos they have great parents who go to a lot of trouble to make Halloween as fun as possible. Well done to everyone who took part.

    Be still, my heart! These kids are SO ADORABLE. I awwed so very hard, and was very awed by the amount of effort parents have put in for their kids. (Please don't kill me for that terrible pun!) Lady Megatron, it's awesome that your son gets involved with the build itself :) May the best costume win!
