The Baltimore Comic-Con is happy to announce the winners of our 9th Annual Costume Contest. The contest took place this past Saturday, September 23, 2017 for both amateur and professional adults, and Sunday, September 24, 2017 for kids. Visually stunning costumes ranged from classic superheroes to video game and movie characters and beyond, and our contest has proven to be one of the most anticipated events at the show.
This year’s costume contest separated amateur adults from professional adults, and held a separate contest for amateur kids as well.
The grand prize winner for Best in Show Costume, and the recipient of the $1,000 cash prize, was Matt Yeager for his “Monster Hunter Gen. Dreadking Rathalos” costume.
Special thanks go to everyone who entered the contest and showed their support, as well as to our sponsor, Super Hero Stuff and Masters of Ceremonies, Greg Bell and Patrick Storck!
