It's stuck in your head now, isn't it?
3. Gundam Psy

This clever mix of anime and loveable South Korean export (as parodied here) is a mix of Goodwill and papercraft. When asked if he's replicated the iconic ass-yelling scene from the music video, Varleit sighs, "No one's bent over for me yet!"

Hilarious, AND cost-effective.
2. Fifty Shades of Grey (Literally)

"It seemed like a good idea at the time. I like doing cosplay that's thrown together in good humor." Angelica and her paint chart bodice would go on to win a judges' choice award at Saturday night's cosplay competition!

Stephanie and Family

Cosplay is a family affair for Stephanie: "These are all five of my kids, my husband, and my sister. I said, 'If we're going to do it, we're going to do it as a group.'" Stephanie started on the costumes on Halloween and worked until the very last minute to get finished: her axe-bass was constructed out of welding rods, Styrofoam, paper mâché, and duct tape in the three days prior. The family went on to win Best Group on Saturday (and Best in Show in our hearts).
