    one question..whats to stop someone from just creating a bunch of fake log in ids and just voting for themselves like a ca-gillion times? I did not enter the contest but I mean the staff does have some kind of stop to that, right? cause if not then this would probably just be like other costume contests were you winning depends on how many ppl you bring to cheer you on. Just saying..you know?

    Yes, we have a way to monitor and stop someone from voting multiple times.

    However, this is an open voting system and we do encourage entrants to ask their friends to vote for them! Keep in mind that 2/3 of the traffic to this site are non-members and we want to see their opinions as well.

    I didn't enter but if I did and did what you're encouraging entrants to do, I'd have had at least 200 votes from my friends, regardless if they thought my costume was good or not. :lol
    I can see why having a more controlled voting system may be a bit difficult though. So many entrants and all have really nice costumes. Goodluck to all!
    BTW, I can't seem to load the suckerpunch bunny. Anyone else have that problem. It's probably my browser.
    Rock on dudes:thumbsup


    EDIT: Never mind about the bunny. It's loading fine now. Very cool costume!

    I've entered but just wanted to say good luck to everyone.

    Also, @Art Andrews - would it be possible to make the thumbnails a bit bigger (maybe twice the size they are currently) just so that people don't necessarily need to click each image to get a feel for the costume? (just a thought - no probs if not)

    Decisions, decisions! Again, this is just too difficult! Amazing costumes.
    Somebody needs to do a Gentlemen of the RPF Calendar!! Though it would have to be a Seven Year Calendar to showcase all this talent!!

    Ok I voted....but I need to give a shout out to one costume I didnt vote for.... The King Ledonis (sp) 300. I read about the hard physical work you put into this with diets and work outs....that is dedication on many different levels. If this was a bodybuilding site, you would probably be walking away with first prize. But its a costume and prop building site. Besides, I would ventue to think that that your bigger prize is the total body transformation that you get to enjoy. So (y)thumbsup for that dude, good job.

    You guys all did a fantastic job! I found it hard to break it down and finally vote for a winner. The funny ones always get a good reaction, but in the end I had to vote for the costume that I thought was both wearable and accurate. It looks like there are thousands of man hours spent on these costumes and it is a shame that only two people walk away with any recognition.

    CONGRATS TO ALL 81 ENTRANTS!!

    Such a truly difficult choice in this category!
    I wanted to vote for ones from certain licenses I'm into, but what it came down to me was not only the quality and execution of the costume but also the person wearing it and if they portrayed the character correctly. For me there was only one that had me thinking he was the real deal.

    Good Luck to all!!

    Wow! I was going to vote for myself, but there are plenty of great costumes out of 80 people. Great job everyone. I have to save my vote and spend it wisely. I can think on this all year and still undecided. There really should have been more categories! Seriously hard choice. Good Luck to everyone, you all have really out done yourself this year!!!

    This sounds like a good idea. I say lets have another category for the top 12 and then make a calender out of them. I'd buy one :)

    Definately, talented people here. Good luck to you all. :thumbsup

    Again a ridiculous number of choices this year! Hard enough picking a single lady!

    Well I made it easy on myself and voted for another costume I have an affinity for. ;)

    Way too hard to choose just one. So many of these costumes are just beyond amazing! You guys have definitely raised the bar for next year's contest.

    *** NOTE: We have temporarily closed the voting due to some technical issues. Voting will probably reopen sometime tomorrow. As a result of this issue, the voting will be extended, and we will announce a revised closing date.

    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.

    Good call Art. In all honesty, I always wished it was a members-only vote in the first place. There are some FANTASTIC costumes on display here and it was a little sad that it was becoming a popularity contest rather than a true reflection of the hard work and dedication put in by entrants. :)

    It is really unfortunate that it came to this, but we were left with no choice. :(

    What a shame, but a good call. I was wondering how some people had managed to get quite as high as they had (I thought they'd just really nailed social networking! I was trying my best but just couldn't keep up! lol)
