Voting ends November 10 at 9 pm PT. You may vote only once. Each picture has a costume number on it that you will use for voting. The voting poll is just to the right of this post in the right-hand column.

Note: Having a current comic book in the photo as part of the contest rules. It was added to ensure that entries were not photos from previous years. In some cases, comics are not included in the photos because we took the pictures ourselves in the shop this year. :)
