Kotaku 'Shop Contest: Horsing Around: The Winners

The WTFery of Konami sponsoring lifelike horseheads as a costume item in PlayStation Home gave rise to this week's 'Shop Contest, which I am proud to report is brony free. Keep your friends close and your 'Shops closer with double-finalist and overall winner uscg_pa, inside!

Let's get started: ZeroToad supplies an equine take on Infinity Blade (15). Pan_1da7 (8) conjures up a new take on Beta Ray Bill, while mooglegiant (6) gives us the original Wyld Stallyns. Longtime finalist sciteach (10) is not impressed by any of this.

Our first animated .gif finalist in a long time belongs to Abrahim Ladha (1). Riley King (9) gives us armored horses for free. I thought arniejolt (3) was going for a headswap but not quite. He still makes the cut.

Overall No. 1 is uscg_pa (13), with the first and best take on why Konami would be fooling around with horseheads. Snake's look is perfect (note also the Oscar on the table behind him). Runner up also is uscg_pa, with a fresh take on another iconic Konami game and character.

Thanks again to everyone who participated. We have another 'Shop Contest tomorrow.
