As usual, last week's Comic-Con 2009 in San Diego brought out the most dedicated and shameless dress-up types, decked out like their favorite imaginary costumed bad-asses from comics, movies, TV shows, and video games. From Slave Leia to Luke Cage, they ran the gamut of geekish obsession, transforming ordinary conventioneers into objects of awe, derision, or lust. We just wish we could've helped. Your challenge this week:

Show us how you could use past or current Woots as part of your superhero, sci-fi, or video-game costume.

Emphasize the inventive DIY aspect of cosplay - we're not looking for Hollywood-quality likenesses. It should be obvious that the costumes are fan-made.

Post your entry here by 11:59 AM (central) on Monday, August 3, 2009. Prizes are $20/$50/$100 for 3rd/2nd/1st. The rules and criteria for winning: our panel of volunteer judges can and will make stuff up as it goes along. Use Photoshop, linoleum blocks, pastels, MSPaint, cave painting, tattoos, tribal scarification, whatever, but it’ll only be judged if it’s visible in our forums as a jpg, gif, or png. As we are fond of saying, try to keep your maximum width to 550px. If you need a place to host your pictures, try www.imageshack.ws or www.photobucket.com. We have no connection to either, but they seem free and easy to use. And if you want us to be sure your entry was indeed your work, post links to your source images. The more sure we are that you did your own work, the more likely we are to consider it for a prize.

LOST IN SPACE, the classic sci-fi adventure of TV, movies and comics, gave us Robot B9 (the one from the TV series is still my favorite sci-fi icon).

Seen here is me in my woot!-enhanced B9 costume with my android "squeeze."


The image below shows how B9 has been "tricked-out" over the years with parts that were secured from woot!

Doh! Just finished my Robot, as I didn't think anyone would chop him. Good job though.
