People's Choice Cosplay Award Winner Announced!

As promised, The Upcycled Cosplay Challenge People's Choice Award has been running this past week and the votes are now in!

We firstly wanted to congratulate the five contestants for the high caliber of work that was on display and the ingenuity of using 100% salvaged materials to bring their visions to life.

Secondly, a big congratulations to Wulfhure Daelman, whose Steampunk inspired, emu-riding Victorian-era polo player, 'Percival Hamilton-Smyth' won the Judge's Award on the opening night. Wulfhure generously decided to share the $500 raw material voucher prize with the other four contestants, so they each have $100 to spend on RGQ materials and judging by their Upcycled Cosplay Challenge outfits, that money is going to be well spent!

Without further ado, after countless votes, we can declare Samurai Darth Vader by Scott Bourke the winner of the People's Choice Award. Congratulations, Scott!

One lucky draw entrant, Amber Clarke, has also won a $50 prize voucher to use on raw materials from the Reverse Garbage Queensland warehouse - that goes a long way, here!

See each picture for a more detailed description of the pieces and how they were made using salvaged materials from our warehouse. Better yet, come and visit! You have until November 11th to pop in and examine these amazing upcycled creations up-close.
