TMI Source’s Second Annual Halloween Costume Contest was a big success. We received 115 entries that were all so incredible and creative and it was hard to choose just two winners and a couple of honorable mentions.
I would like to thank the always lovely Katie Bartow (Mundie Moms) and Natalie C. Markey (TMI Examiner) for once again co-judging this contest with me. We were all blown away with all of the creative talent in this fandom.
Thank you to everyone for your patience as we judged this contest and thank you for sharing your amazing costumes with us!
Here are the results:
KATIE as CLARY
Alyssa: “The detail that went into Katie’s costume was amazing. I love how she replicated Lily Collins’ look as Clary Fray in THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES down to the last detail, including Lily’s exact t-shirt from Brooklyn Industries. We’ve seen people put their own spin on certain looks but Katie’s creativity using the exact look from the movie was fantastic!”
Natalie: “I LOVE it when people dress up as secondary characters but the creativity and thoughtfulness that went into Katie’s Clary costume was fantastic! Not only does he make a great Clary but also really brings the movie to this contest. Great job and I loved the presentation of side by side pictures of Katie’s costume and Lily Collins in character.”
VANESSA as JESSAMINE
Alyssa: “I really loved all of the INFERNAL DEVICES costumes we received this year and this was my favorite. I really commend Vanessa for not only choosing a secondary character like Jessamine, but really capturing her character in everything from the costume to the pose to the look.”
Natalie: “As mentioned before, I love seeing secondary characters and really liked Vanessa’s Jessamine’s look.”
ADAM & ALISA as WILL & TESSA
AMELIE as CHARLOTTE
Alyssa: “A pair of INFERNAL DEVICES costumes made our honorable mentions. I really enjoyed seeing a couple depict Will and Tessa. It was beautiful! I loved seeing how many secondary characters were portrayed this year including Amelie as Charlotte. Her costume is so gorgeous and reflects the time period and her pose is very Charlotte. A huge thanks to everyone that entered this year. You guys blew me away with your talent and creativity. I cannot wait to see what you bring next year!”
Natalie: “ It was also nice to see a couple get inspiration from ‘The Infernal Devices’ with Adam and Alisa and I just loved Amelie as Charlotte. There were many creative and well-planned costumes and judging them was so hard! Thanks for letting me judge and I’m really looking forward to next year!”
The winners will be contacted by email.
Thanks to everyone who entered this year’s Costume Contest and we hope to have you back next year!
