Freddy In Space Halloween Costume Contest : The Entries & The Winners!

Last Wednesday spelled the end of the first annual Freddy In Space Halloween Costume Contest, wherein the prize for this inaugural year was not one but two $50 coupon codes to BuyCostumes.com, awarded to the two best costumes as chosen by yours truly. I know a lot of you folks have been anxiously waiting to find out if you won, so i'm here tonight to not only announce the winners (who actually were already contacted last week and have the coupon codes in their possession), but also share all of the entries I received. So let's have some fun and do that!

Drum roll please. And your two winners are ....

Tony Hicks as Leslie Vernon!

Erick Bognar as Uncle Fester!

These are the two costumes that stood out to me personally and I also had Jen go through all the entries and pick out her two favorites, without me saying anything to her about which ones I thought should win. Wouldn't ya know it, she picked Tony and Erick as the winners too, which confirmed my belief that they should be the ones awarded the codes. So congrats guys. Enjoy the free BuyCostumes.com money and I hope you keep on rocking kickass Halloween costumes for years to come!

I wanted to show my appreciation to each and every person who entered, so i've decided to share all the pictures I received. If I could give you all prizes, please know that I would love nothing more than to do so. You all rock!

Thanks John and Jen for picking me! I just got the coupon code today. If you'll excuse me, I have some Halloween buying to do.
