View Full Version : Costume Contest - Winners!

11-03-2009, 11:37 PM
After taking a good look at all of the submissions, I've decided on three that I think stand above the rest. There were so many, though, I almost feel bad narrowing it down to three. Going through the submissions, I was regularly surprised as to how creative and detailed these costumes are. Good job to all of you, really - this was one of the more fun contests to judge.

Anyway, the screenshots of the winning costumes are included along with the username of the winner (which is linked to their post containing the rest of their submissions) and a short quip as to why we felt it deserved to win.


Morgana25 (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showpost.php?p=316647&postcount=36)
For her Duurp Sista costume. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. Her other costumes are also fantastically designed (I particularly liked her gargoyle costume (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/picture.php?albumid=395&pictureid=4111)), so be sure to check them out.


Outlaw-Jack (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showpost.php?p=316836&postcount=40)
For his Jack Skellington costume. He also designed a fantastic recreation (http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2580/4041225432_081e4ddcee_o.jpg) of Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, which is definitely worth a look.


Joey (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showpost.php?p=317409&postcount=56)
For his Shell Queen costume. While by itself it's still good, the inclusion of the buck teeth really made it a character, one that made me laugh quite a bit as a result. While you're there, check out his Birdy! costume (http://i709.photobucket.com/albums/ww92/Joester1991/018.jpg) - it's very disturbing (in a good way).

Once again, thanks to everyone for participating! The entries will remain in the original contest thread, so if you missed out, go take a look (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17899)!

Any idea how often these sponsored contests might run, CC?

At the moment, as often as I can support them. There are...certain things going on in the next couple of weeks that will demand much of my time, but if I find myself with some to spare, I will definitely run another one again.

11-04-2009, 06:53 AM

lpghoilic - check out Joey's thread here for more info about Duurps and tips for making your own. Basically the stranger or more exaggerated their features the better. There's lots of pics to inspire you too. Think goofy, a bit slow, but very fun loving and you'll have it.


11-04-2009, 08:23 AM
Well done guys. I love those costumes. :)

11-04-2009, 09:17 AM
WOW brilliant contest well done to all the winners, they were all really creative and brilliant to look at, I would also like to say well done to every entrant as every costume entered was there own costume and really take the create part of sackboy above a level that Mm never thought of.

11-04-2009, 10:07 AM
:D Congrats Morgana! and Outlaw-Jack! you guys deserv it :)

Thanks! ConfusedCartman for this awesome contest! mhhm

11-04-2009, 12:03 PM
Good costumes guys, i like the Jack Skellington best of these 3.
i was just wondering the winners got picked.
did you just pick three you liked ConfusedCartman?
I know the site has voting abilities in threads, so i was just thinking it would of been nice to see the staff filter the entries down, and then a vote to see which costumes the community liked best, rather than one persons opinion.

11-04-2009, 12:13 PM
Joey thats not Shelly :( is that her sister???? Great job, All!!! XD

11-04-2009, 06:18 PM
Congrats! All three well deserved winners! :)

11-04-2009, 06:47 PM
Joey thats not Shelly :( is that her sister???? Great job, All!!! XD

Lol that shelly was the first 1 i made :p

11-04-2009, 06:59 PM
I still don't know what a DUURP actually is ( as far as I can tell it's just a sackboy with big monster eyes ) but it looks very similar to my 'Little Monster' that I made as soon as the Monster pack came out. Maybe I should have copyrighted it lol.

11-04-2009, 07:23 PM
Haha, those costumes made my laugh out loud! Great job!

11-04-2009, 09:56 PM
i was hoping to see that lizard costume win :p

grats to all the winners:)

11-05-2009, 02:53 PM

11-05-2009, 11:59 PM
Aw man, outlaw, you should've entered a vuurp! lolz. In all honesty, congratz. Outlaw, you Jack skelington represenation is remarkable, and Joey and Morgana, those two costumes are funny as always! :D

11-06-2009, 05:04 PM
Congrats to 3 very worthy winners :D
Your all great as these :)

These costumes amaze me, as I never mess about making them and when I do I make something plain and boring lol

11-06-2009, 09:02 PM
Congrats to all the winners! I really need to start experimenting with costume design.

11-08-2009, 02:51 AM
Cool costumes, everybody. I had a blast checking out all the entries. I'm not much of a costume guy, but now I think I'll have to try a few.

11-11-2009, 03:13 PM

11-17-2009, 02:57 PM

Try not to post in old threads, it's frowned upon here, you'll find it's frowned upon in most other forum's too. Before you post it might be a good idea to see the date of the last post (top left of every post).

LOL i love durp, and outlawjack looks amazing!
Whoah, massive bump! This thread is like from 4 months ago! Like Doopz said, try to refrain from posting in old threads like this. Even if the temptation is too much...:kz:

Did you see how old this thread was? Check the date of last and first post.

07-23-2010, 03:46 PM
Although Alec is correct, this thread is old, we haven't had an official contest for a while now, maybe a pod contest would be quite cool. :)

07-23-2010, 03:58 PM
yah i think it would b coolio! :D i wouldn't win cause my pod just has the words 'yeah' all over it.......so yeah! :D i vote 4 pod contest!
