A trio of cosplayers, two of whom were either ejected or threatened with it at PAX East two weeks ago, provided the grist for our latest 'Shop Contest challenge. Whose boobs are bigger—B.A. Baracus or Juliet Starling? Doesn't matter, we've got Pan1da7 down as the winner inside!
Angryrider (1) gets us going with the best punchline of the bunch.As booth-babe Jessica Nigri was involved, Stuart.C (16) flips the script to call back to the Zangief booth bear from November. mezdup (11) had the best re-take on Jessica Nigri's costume. luckybaka (9) supplied the best Phoenix Wright interpretation, and there were many.
As B.A. was lugging around a pipe, there were tons of Super Mario references. Luke Rogers (10) gives us Bullet Bill, past winner hampstasandwich (6) imagines a piranha plant. TheBigCheese (17) gives us a Lakitu I'd love to see in the Mario Kart series. TVs Frank (19) also goes into NES canon, as does multiple finalist mrjoeyyaya (12) with Duck Hunt, and Asshole Mr. T.
Overall finalists? I thought hoshin's (7) take on Lincoln's assassination was hilarious, but felt pan1da7's was better done and more recognizable to readers. So there we have it, all of this week's winners. Take a bow.
See you in here tomorrow for another 'Shop Contest challenge.
