    And can I just mention, the voting was VERY close and we did a few recounts (real ones, not Florida ones) just to be sure, so you guys who missed out, don`t feel bad, you were right in there and definitely try again next time!

    Oh, and for those who are wondering, by "heavy lifting on the count", Fancy means "all those big numbers". We love him dearly and he`s trying reaaal hard, but those big numbers over 5 are still somewhat confusing for him. He`ll get there though in time.

    No, she isn`t, it`s just in a state of such high speed it isn`t visible to your eye. It`s in such a state because she has to type "Yes, I am missing it" about 300,000 times to every single person who asks on the comment board who hasn`t read for 30 seconds.

    if the guy who is in the gordon freeman costume if his face looked a little more like gordon freeman I WOULD WANT THAT ONE TO WIN! THAT WOULD BE THE BEST! i know he cant change his face and it still looks great but not the best. the best i think is the NURSE FROM SILENT HILL OR CARROT CUTTING ACCIDENT

    I like the winning costume, but it seems like a bit of a cheat, because she`s basically dressed as a person with one hand. Thats like me going as a person who hasn`t been in a horrific carrot cutting accident because I have two hands.

    Optimus should have won it.

    I really hope you guys don`t think it`s cheating. The make-up for the nub took quite a while, I did put a lot of effort in. It`s also just as "cheating" as it is that the 3rd place winner looks just like Gordon, or that any of the girls are attractive. But I didn`t base my voting on solely effort, I took other factors into account just as much.

    Secondly - Opie, in no way do I or most of the people think yours would be cheating. You totally made the most gruesome and unbelievably realistic costume out of what your momma gave you ;D

    It`s perfectly easy to type and all that jazz with one hand. And play gameboy and xbox. And tie shoe laces. And crack eggs. And even paint your own nails. It`s called ADAPTING and it`s what you do when you have no choice.

    Well if using my body as an advantage in my costume is cheating than I`m sorry, but I just don`t see that as cheating at all. If it makes you feel better I was completely flabbergasted to know I won and did not expect to even place. But the people voted as they voted so if you have problems, talk with them and not me.

    I wouldn`t say she cheated, but I don`t think it deserved a win. It was a good gag, but not really a good "costume". The votes are what counts, and she got the most votes.

No, she didn`t cheat, I didn`t see anywhere in the rules that said you couldn`t do that. Be happy she can make light of her unfortunate situation and she isn`t all whiny about it, like some of you douchebags are about not winning a halloween contest, cry more.

    the coolest, well done for just making yourself look completely like a nobhead, april has turned something that alot of people would be insecure about into something absolutely drating brilliant and if you think thats cheating then you are a tiny tiny insignificant man and your thought doesnt matter, considering she was voted top, everyone on this site loves april, last years winner was hot, thats probs why she won, the only similiarity beetween her and the character she was playing was that she was wearing shorts

    > Well if using my body as an advantage... is cheating...

    ...then that makes every woman in the world an automatic cheater when it comes to relationships. Cmon guys, its not cheating, its taking the hand life dealt you and making the best play possible from it (rather an apt and literal metaphor in this case lol). What I find amazing is, sure, I knew about it, but I`d never seen the extent of it before, and I thought she had more than she actually has... it makes her 14,000+ posts on IAB ever more amazing cause geez if she had two good hands to type with you`d never shut the girl up!

    Besides, I`m proud that we`ve built a community here at IAB where someone with a `disability` can show their whole self without shame and without being picked on by a bunch of immature snots. Shows how far the world, and we at IAB particularly, have come. Good show.

    "

    If you don`t "get" the costume, it`s not worth typing out to you. We all know that you get the costume and you`re finding a reason to complain, just stop. It was clever, admit it. Instead of her being insecure about it, she used it to her advantage.

    All right people seriously. This girl took something took an idea that was ingenious. This is something that could be a natural disadvantage in real life and ran with it. So if someone won who was in a wheel chair with a costume you`d yell too?

    Many of you weren`t too pretty either, maybe you should use being ugly as your natural disadvantage and make it into and ingenious costume idea next year.

    She didn`t cheat. She used her brain. SHe used what she had. Jerks.

    I`m really not complaining, Shell. People kept offering help and all of that good stuff, and I appreciate all of it, but it`s not really anything that could have been helped with. It`s one of those jobs that you have to sit down and do alone, and I volunteered to do it. All kidding aside, I kind of enjoyed it.

    The thing that I`m most curious about is how squirting some fake blood on your hand counts as a costume?"

    theres alot more there then fake blood dumbass, so why dont you quit bitching because you lost and move on, its an internet contest.

    Complaining that opie cheated is exactly the same as complaining that lance armstrong cheated in the tour de france, because he only has 1 ball. Just like what they said to his critics, if you don`t like it, you are free to cut off your own hand.

    You know...This means that balla cheated last year. She used her hot body with her costume. I mean...I bet if she was a fat ugly chick, she wouldnt have won. And dont try to tell me "not uh, thats not true" because you know it is.

    "Oh grow up. If you had a son with downs syndrome going around saying "look at me I`m retarded, laugh at me!" I can bet my balls that you wouldn`t let him continue to do that."

    Me grow up? I`m the one crying about losing a costume contest right? Haha, alright. I`ll grow up. How does that have ANYTHING to do with Opie having a clever costume? I`m pretty sure downs syndrome isn`t equal to Opie`s hand issue.

    Its called being creative. People can use whatever they have at their disposal, even the lack of a body part or access to a large amount of money. Some people have tons of money to spend on their costume, are you going to say that they can`t use all of their resources? It is a wonderful idea and costume.

    Let`s not turn this into a flame war about shoulda-coulda-woulda`s.

    Opie won, fair and square.

    Who is anybody to question her, like she did something wrong? We let YOU guys decide who should win, and she won. OPIE didn`t decide, WE didn`t decide, YOU did... and she got nearly twice as many votes as the person in second place. Seriously, twice as many.

    Now if you would all be so kind, could you please let the winner and runner-ups please enjoy their moment?

    Well, see, Opie was this secret agent right, and one day while scaling this corporate office this man spotted her and began shooting, once she got to the top of the building all of a sudden these ninjas popped out, and they began this EPIC sword fight, she won, but sadly lost her hand. And that is the story.

    When on earth did I ever complain? I just agreed on the fact that I see as some form of cheating. If it`s not against the rules, then fine by me. I did not make up the contest nor come up with the rules. What`s so bad about giving your opinion on something?

    elHadji if you are going to carry on being such a close minded little despot then by all means continue being a dick, but aprils outfit was fantastic and she is loved by pretty much everyone on this site. and ftr you obviously havent seen retarded policeman, and how funny that guy is. If you can find humor and brilliance in yourself then thats fantastic, maybe when you have kids of your own you should try and teach them that as you obviously havent picked it up
    btw if people cant see the detail put into the severed hand need to look closer

    Okay. I`m going to say this once more and then that`s it. The effort that I put into my costume was very likely not the same effort that some of the completely made from scratch costumes had. However I did spent hours researching wound make-up, then the night of (and the night after, actually) apply red scar wax or tissue, broken up plastic forks and knives for bone, multiple layers of liquid latex and tissue for skin, make-up for coloring, blood gel to stay in place, and then my own recipe of fake blood over thrift store clothing and my nub. It was not simply a noneffort job.

    Secondly, I used my body as much as a kid in a wheelchair being a fighter does, or as much as someone dressing up like Gordon Freeman who strikingly resembles him, as much as a very attractive woman wearing skimpy awesome clothes, as much as anyone who has any physical characteristics that fit their costume.

    Complain to the voters, not me. I`m sorry if you disagree with the outcome but that`s democracy.

    Can all the people who agree with who the winner is please not have a go at all the people who disagree? We`re all posting in order to give our little inconcequential reactions.

    Some people will say "yay, cool", some will say the normal congrats, and some will bring up their disappointment. Can we all live with it?

    Bringing up a debatable point about why the vote went they way it is =/= throwing all the toys out of the pram and "whining like a bitch".

    opie, you looked ace, congrats. Definately deserved top 10.

    Just in case I didn`t make my point, I just wanted to thank all 70 peeps who submitted costumes, the voters (over 1,200 I think) and everyone who chimed in with constructive comments and extra thanks to the Mods who dealt with a lot of crap and knocked it out of the park every day for a month on this.

    I`m already plotting out next year`s contest and I`m racking my brain for a cool Christmas contest. Stay tuned for details... when I think them up...

    I-A-B FOREVER, B1TCHES!

    PS: Using what you got (or don`t got in Opie`s case) really ain`t cheating--it`s just smart.

    Ok Kevin...i think its official. You are in my book (and trust me...most others too) one of the slowest members to visit IAB.

    I know you are normally able to tell its photoshop...i mean, by its pixels and by having seen a lot in your life...but damn you`re stupid.

    Opie has ABS, amniotic band syndrome. Basically part of her hand is missing, its not a photoshop.

    I think I just found stupid in the dictionary Merriam-Webster

    "But what is the referance?"

    I think I get what you mean. She was cutting some carrots to feed her hamster or something and the knife slipped - as it does - and managed to cut her whole hand off. Happy Halloween

    The moral of this story? Don`t eat your vegetables or make your Hamsters eat them either

    I`m guessing it would be either REALLY awesome good costumes (like a real beard on santa) or really funny parody costumes (drunken elf).

    [email protected] of these comments. Really? Opie won. Her costume was awesome. Deal with it.

    Dressing up as a nurse from Silent Hill really isn`t all that creative, to be honest. There are tons of other women who went as nurses. I saw at least 30 when I went downtown. How many Carrot Accident girls? None. :P

    Anyway. Opie, congrats!

    Talking about slipping drugs into kid`s candy doesn`t really seem like a bit of harmless joking.
    And what I was able to derive from that senseless rambling was that you give drugs to kids, which is pretty pathetic still. I don`t care about what you do on your own time but making it available to children, who don`t know any better by the way, is irresponsible and innapropriate.

    A lot of the attention seemed to focus on a small number of costumes, so I hope no one feels discouraged by the lack of comments or votes they received, at least you got your photo plastered up for all to see, no questions asked.

    Well I like the idea of best decorated tree or house... I also REALLY like the gingerbread house idea. Though for all of those it would be hard to prove that you were the person that made it... I mean anyone can stand in front of a decorated house/tree/dessert with a sign and pretend like they made it.

    true when you have the palm trees there, but there are some amazing houses in my area. Some people go all out. Whole streets go all out! But most decorated houses will have snow, so us aussies do lack that which doesn`t make it as pretty :(

    Maybe creepy santas/elves/mrs clauses or christmas trees would be a better way to go

    For Christmas, I have two suggestions:

    1. Bulb contest -- decorate a Christmas bulb in an I-A-B theme

    2. Nativity Scene -- Come up with your best twist on the Christmas staple. Doesn`t have to be I-A-B themed, just use your imagination and make your own little scene. And for you religious zealots out there, it doesn`t even have to be an actual parody of Christ`s birth or have anything to do with any sort of nativity, just a scene. Know what I mean? Or is this entire idea too offensive? Christians out there, I want to know your take on that. I don`t know what`s crossing the line, but I think this one could go places.

    P.S. Nerd, giving teenagers motivation for overhauling the family tree (or even worse, their house), might end with some angry parents.

    ...

    Nah, just kidding. Christmas has nothing to do with Christ or his birth anyway, anyone who says it does is just choosing to ignore the historical, known facts. I laughed my tits off at the nativity pi**-take in "Life of Brian", and it didn`t do my faith any harm. Go for it. I really like the "Nativity Scene" suggestion, people could make either a video, or a showbox-sized diorama, or something like that.

    But Shell, with the costumes it`s kinda different. You have to hold the sign or have it next to you, making it very hard to cheat. You`d have to conspire with the person who dressed up. For a house or gingerbread or tree you don`t necessarily, because it`s not something one wears. Therefore you could just find the coolest decorated house on the street and photo it...

    Also, having seen the overwhelming success that the Halloween Costume was this year, I`d like to *PLANT THE SEED* (fancy, are you listening?) of a rolling competition...

    Think of this: The person who holds up an IAB sign (hand-drawn, whatever is all cool, as long as it`s real) in the most epic place that one can possibly imagine.

    I`m imagining on top of Everest, at the South Pole, by the control console on the International Space Station. Or if you`re a total whore for internet notoriety, at the birth of your first child.

    Today the Halloween comp, tomorrow the World. Who`s with me?

    Lionhart, you bastarding c*nt. Wherever I`ve been, you always have to be there first, doncha? Now I know how Edmund Hillary (Kiwi usurper bastard) must have felt when he knew in his heart of hearts that Mallory had reached the peak of Everest 30 years earlier. Like Hillary, I can`t prove in court of law that I was first. And also, like Hillary, I think you`re a c*nt.

    also, christmas comp idea:

    Creating your own santa. It can be made out of anything and as long as your ugly mug and iab sign with your username on it is in the pic, it should be as close to proving as your own as it can get, right?

    Is "Nativity Scene Competition" offensive?

    Nah. Don`t see why.

    Is "The IAB Nativity Scene Competition" going to be offensive?

    Probably. I`m expecting a hell of a lot of "I took a picture of poo" followed by 1 million votes.

    Which is a shame, because there are some awesome ones: Like this

    There`re a lot of pages here, so correct me if I`ve been unduly prejudiced, but the only reason I didn`t vote for Opie as my top #1 was because I assumed that she had, in reality, ACTUALLY suffered an amputation at the wrist, as this could be the only thing I could think of to account for the realism of her presentation outside of photoshop (which I`m sure she wouldn`t employ, given not only the contest regulations but the integrity of her character).. If not, I`m truly sorry, but YOU WON ANYWAYS!!!

    So can I just ask this...I was looking back at some flame wars going on about Opies costume and how it was cheating but I don`t get it. How is using a natural part of her body..or lack of a part of her body cheating for a costume? I mean Balla won last year simply because she was pretty and made a very convincing/hott Lara Croft. I mean one could argue that she used her body to win a contest as well but that is life. I just don`t see what the big deal. Opie won fair and square and it was a well deserved win.

    So again congrats to the winners and to the runners up. I might try next year if we do the contest again. :-)

    Opie deserves the win though for such awesome blood splattered evil.

    2nd place was awesome too!

    I think Opie`s pic would have been better or deserving of first place if she AT LEAST looked like she wasn`t HAPPY about cutting her hand off! She looks like she`s going up to her mum and saying `oopsie :3` lol

    Just so people know, the money is going to a good cause. All $250 is going towards my cat`s emergency urinary blockage treatment that I found out he needs today, and that money is the only reason my parents will be able to pay for the other $1000 of it.

    So... thanks to your votes my cat will live. Not that anyone knew about it, I`m just extremely grateful.

    "dont agree with the gordon feeman one...."

    I`m going to agree with you on not agreeing with it. In the small picture you couldn`t see the fact that it was made out of cardboard or the tape showing.

    OMG Opie buy a new cat, its a helluva lot cheaper. No cat in the world is worth spending actual money on, they`re like wives, they only love you as long as you feed them!

    Agreed. Where is it? Does Opie one have one arm? D: How`d she hide her hand?

    Lol, Opie has one hand, guys...Also, I`m surprised the G.I. Joe one didn`t place higher, it was actually a really well done costume.

    Props to all you guys!

    It`s kinda weird that the person who got twice as many votes as their nearest competitor won? Not really.

    And guys, Opie only has one hand. Scroll down a fair way, and there`s a picture or five, sans costume.

    I know that in the case of #5, they had another photo which had their sign, so as to not taint their entry. I assume 6th and 10th had this, as well.

    Yay for Old Gregg, also lots of credit for commitment to the costume with the light.
