Vote for Marvel Costumes

The top 30 Marvel Costume Contest finalists have been posted (link no longer available), ready for fan voting. Voters have to join the site and will also be entered in a sweepstakes to win a “signed Captain America Volume 1 Omnibus by Ed Brubaker” (and no artists, apparently). Voting ends October 29, with winners announced on Halloween.

Some have more imagination than skill (zombie Colonel America, zombie Spider-Man). Some are surprising in choice, but a good execution (Deadpool, Sandman, the Lizard, Mister Sinister, Iron Man – a miracle of engineering, as is the Thing, and Squirrel Girl!). Some are straightforward, with body to match (Punisher, Phoenixes – the white one’s shiny!). PS to Storm – wear flesh-colored underwear with white clothing, not blue.

I’m most impressed by the J. Jonah Jameson, myself. It’s a clever concept, an unusual choice, and carried off with personality.

    I’m pretty sure the green-suited Phoenix was Ruby Rocket, who does a lot of cosplay stuff at various cons and is more or less a professional booth babe. As such, she has a pretty big online following, so I’ll be surprised if she doesn’t win. I kinda think that all of that gives her an unfair advantage, though, so I voted for Squirrel Girl.
