Third Place Winner Sam McClellan:

I have been costuming for 9 years. Batman was the first costume I ever put together. I chose it because, at the time, I thought it would be the easiest superhero costume to do.

Boy, was I wrong! For the longest time I have tried to make the perfect bat suit. This costume is not my first Batman. This particular Batman is my third and final attempt.

I believe it to be just about perfect after making the grey body suit, the rest of the pieces to the outfit were added/selected very carefully. It is based off of my favorite Batman story, the HUSH story line written by Jeph Loeb and drawn by Jim Lee.

I like it because I’ve always loved Batman in his blue cowl and cape costume rather than in a black cowl and cape. It just seemed more interesting.

Batman is not my favorite character but he definitely makes my top 3. I really chose to enter with him mainly because when I saw the other costumes that entered it hurt that Batman was not in the mix! Batman is a giant part of comic book culture and to have a costume contest and not at least see one Batman is almost criminal.

A funny thing about the picture is that it was taken at 5AM of the morning of the deadline. I forgot about the deadline to the contest and realized the night before that I had to take a picture that night or would never have another chance. The problem was that when I tried to take it myself I always came out dark. So I had to wait for my roommate, but she did not get home until 4am!

Well, imagine her surprise when she walks in the door at 4AM and I’m in my Bat suit and ask her to take a picture (in the best Dark Knight voice I could do). Well, after half an hour of her laughing she finally took the picture and afterword told me that if I ever needed a picture taken again to find someone else. Can’t wait for the next costume contest, I have plenty to show off.

Thanks to Sam for taking the time to tell his story!  It is now posted at the FBCC page for all to enjoy and to congratulate in the months to come.

Actually all three of the winning entries names / costumes worn are now posted on the FBCC pages for all to view and congratulate!  The stories of the 1st and 2nd place winners have already been blogged in this Blog at previous posts.

And congratulations are also in order to all that entered the First Ever FBCC Costume Competition!  As one of the five judges for this event, I can say that they were all winners in my book as it was hard to judge all the great entries!
