And the winner of the 2013 Goldie Girl Power Halloween Costume Contest is…
Elsa Andres as Rosie the Riveter!
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.
