The Results of Unreality’s Halloween Costume Contest!

Wow, we had a GREAT response for our first annual Unreality costume contest this year, and I got a lot more responses than I anticipated. Day one I had like two, but by the end, I had way, way more to choose from.

But there can only be one winner, and through a completely objective process that involves a great appreciation for Parks and Recreation, I’ve chosen John Anthony’s Ron Swanson as my winner. The gun, the bacon, the eggs, the pyramid, too amazing to pass up. Maybe not the hardest to put together out of all these, but I burst out laughing when I saw it.

There were a TON of cool costumes submitted however, and I would be remiss to not show you a bunch of them even after declaring a winner. I’ve compiled a rather large gallery of the best of the rest, including the first and second runners up. Check them out for yourself below:

#1 – Ron Swanson

#2 – Potato GLaDOS

#3 – Mayhem (Allstate)

The rest of these are in no particular order, but are generally pretty awesome.

Shaun(a) of the Dead

Deadmau5 and Fuu



Two Face

The Mario Bros. and Green Lantern

Team Rocket


Power Rangers

Bobby Trusavage

Walter and Jesse

    Awesome costumes, I also went as Randy Savage (along with my friends as Ric Flair, Sting, Mankind, The Rock & some wrestler named Skid Mark that my friend made up….) I completely forgot about the contest, badass Ron Swanson, though.

  • Bobby Trusavage

    Whoa I made it! Haha oops, forgot to put what I went as in my email. It was Cyber Goth.

  • Bobby Trusavage

    I have to give it to Batman though, those shoulder rocket launchers, just wow.

  • Nabs

    Woo, I made it on the list (Zipper Zombie) I was not sure after my night out if I had sent it. Excellent costumes all around, I think my favourite is Dead Ed (from Shaun of the Dead)

  • Jim Lahey

    The Ron Swanson guy looks more like a bigger Fez from That 70’s Show if he grew a moustache than the actual Ron Swanson.

  • minecraft link was my fave but ace and gary made me lawl in my cubicle, particularly for the last photo

  • Those are all pretty awesome. Nice job, everyone!

  • k dub

  • Victoria

    Yay!!! You put my husband and I up! That’s my dead Ed! My hubby thought he couldn’t dress up because he’s big, I told him that everyone thinks he looks like Ed, we should do Shaun and Ed 😛 Love the rest of the costumes. Great submissions! Walter and Splicer are definitely some of my faves. Also Gareth and Ambiguously Gay Duo. I gotta hand it to Ron Swanson though, just perfect. Happy Halloween y’all!!!

  • Jen
