Meet Our Favorite Entries from the Racked DIY Costume Contest

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Last week, we announced that we wanted to honor the best DIY costumes out there, but we had no idea just how much our readers would bring their A-games to the competition. Readers submitted photos of themselves dressed as everything from vintage Nintendo games to Patti Smith to a bag of weed, and they were so great that we rounded them all up here in a gallery for your post-Halloween candy-hangovered delight. The winner (you'll meet him or her at the end) wins a prize of goodies from L'Occitane and Absolute Skincare. So if you are that winner, send us a DM on Twitter or email tips AT racked DOT com to collect your prize!
