#2.) Wow! I must say this is an amazing nurse costume! It looks very professionally made, has the authentic pin stripes and red cross, and the hat matches perfectly. She has mastered the empathetic and nurturing look to the point that you almost feel like an injured hospital patient just by looking at her. Bravo. This one is going to be hard to beat, but I'm sure the rest of our contestants are up to the challenge!
So who wins? Damn, this is a really hard one. But after reviewing the merits of each costume, and factoring in creativity and originality, I guess we have to say it's... a three-way tie! That's right, folks, we just couldn't decide between three of the costumes, so we decided to reach deep into the Popular Irony coffers to pony up three t-shirts for contestants #2, #4, and #6. One of our interns just pointed out that it was a sweep by the ladies this year. What a coincidence! Well, I guess the men have something to shoot for next year, and hopefully they can be inspired to put an equal amount of production value into their costumes for the second annual Popular Irony Halloween Costume Contest. See you next year!
