And The Winner Is…

And the winner of the 2013 Goldie Girl Power Halloween Costume Contest is…


Elsa Andres as Rosie the Riveter!

Congratulations, Elsa!

Whew, that was some stiff competition. I dunno about you guys, but I was sweatin’ it down to the wire. 6,190 people voted, and the margin between the winner and the runner up was only 346 votes. DANG. I think that says all that needs to be said about how wonderful these costumes and these amazing girls are, don’t you?

We’d like to thank Stella Marcotte and her awesome parents for getting Kelly Sue freakin’ Deconnick to share the post (for those of you who don’t know, she writes the current Captain Marvel arc for Marvel Comics). We would also like to thank the parents of Lilia Boukhris for bringing the contest to the attention of Ben Hatke, the creator of Zita the Spacegirl! You all are superstars.

Thank you a thousand times to all of our amazing fans who participated! Your costumes were all incredible, and they will all be featured on our Facebook page in an album of entrants later today.


Team Goldie

  1. Congrats, Elsa!

    We also got Matt Fraction, Jamie McKelvie and Dean Trippe to root for Stella for all the comic book nerds in the house.

    It was exhausting. I’m a little sad we didn’t win, but really glad it’s over so I can stop harassing friends and family.

  2. Me, I am a comic book nerd, and I have been following the retweets with interest. 😉

    You guys did a fantastic job with Stella’s costume.

  3. Thanks. She loved being “Princess Sparklefists.” I wish we still had WonderCon up here. I’d take her to show it off a bit. No one knew who she was when we trick or treated.

    Her sister had an equally good “Squirrel Girl” costume, but — only one entry per family.

  4. Nobody knew who Lilia was supposed to be either at trick or treating – some people thought she was ‘green super girl’!
    I guess that’s a Berkeley thing 🙂

  5. I actually really loved Stella’s costume. If I didn’t personally know one of Elsa’s family members, I might have voted otherwise. (I hate popularity contests….and yet?)

  6. I am glad to find your blog. I would like to support your company any way possible. I wrote about it in my blog today. It’s a blog about extraordinary women — started recently and working on it. Please read my support message there. So, glad for whatever you are doing and for your blog.

  7. Love these! And particularly like how they are tied to real concepts. One note on the contest. Surprised to see it on a site like this. Isnt’ there enough of that in our media?

  8. It says your books are designed for age 4 (and up). I want to remember them for when our daughter turns four. Our four little ones, three boys and one girl, all turned three one week ago. Your books were shared by another Mama of multiples. I look forward to reading and sharing them.
