Engadget Halloween Contest - BOTR

We declared the winners for our first annual Engadget Halloween Costume Contest, but we just had way too many funny, clever, interesting, and just plain amazing costume entrants not to round up a best of the rest collection. So what'd we wind up with? Well, a few Transformers, a ton of people who wore Macs on their heads, and some total nonsequiturs (Steve Ballmer? A Cat5 terminator? Channel9?). We got twenty here for you to peep after the break, check it out!

And what Halloween Costume Contest would be complete without a Giovanni Ribisi lookalike sitting inside an R2D2 Pepsi cooler flipping you the bird? Thanks, Big Ice D., for capping this one off.

Thanks again to everyone who entered!
