For Halloween I decided to go all out for a massive $3000 costume contest in Downtown Orlando, I spent 25 hours with the help of my friends Micheal G. and Micheal T. (I know its awesome that they have names like that) from the Orlando Party Store www.orlandopartystore.com. While I created the majority of the Big Daddy Cosplay, they created the head, drill and lighting within the eyes and helped me transport the costume to the contest on Halloween. While, we did not win the contest (we got 4th out of 175 contestants) we had an amazing time and got excellent publicity for both myself and the Orlando Party Store. The next year we are planning to go as a 10 foot Bowser from Mario Bros and add both glowing eyes and a smoke effect to make it look like he is breathing fire! Happy late Halloween!
