These are the results of a group of friends' $5 cosplay contest. They each went to the dollar store and had to buy everything they needed to make a costume for less than five bucks. As you can see, everybody did a pretty good job. Except Iron Man. I suspect he spent $2 on tape and plates and $3 on chips and candy.
Thanks to Bryan B, who is officially invited to compete in my $4 sex toy contest this weekend. It's a amazing what you can make at the dollar store if you get creative.
