And the Winner Is...

The Halloween Costume Contest tallies are in!

For their impeccable design and playful take on the recent buzz that there may be a second Mona Lisa, Theresa Santanglo and Matt are the winners with their depiction of a pair of lesser known works of Da Vinci.

We're not sure if Vitruvian Matt was able to grab his own beverages, or if Mona Theresa had to stay enigmatically half-grinning all night, but we would have loved to see them in person. I for one, would have asked the famous drawing to do jumping jacks.

Thanks to everyone for submitting. A scroll-through the rest of the submissions is worth it if you're ever in the mood for a wonderland of stunning creations from dreamy wild things, decked out drummer girls, big birds, women in binders, and some of the most cute-as-a-button kid costumes you've ever seen. If kidnapping via web-slideshow was possible 'firefly' would be all mine.

Creepy? Time to go. A listener suggested next year we do a PUMPKIN carving context, and we love the idea. So think on that for next year.

Happy Shortweek.

And in the meantime, we can't resist posting a few more of our favorite costumes here:
