Just how many of you won anything with your armor?

I have seen a few threads where members have mentioned prizes that they won in various Halloween costume contests. One guy that stands out, although I forget his name, won two grand. How did the rest of you do? I myself, hardly have anything done of mine so I didn't have any armor to wear...

Yeah I saw your thread after I made this one, not bad at all. Another year or two and the suit will have payed for itself.

I won $300 at the contest at a local bar. Not bad for a six week turn-around for the suit.
(I really didn't have any competition there soo...you can tell by the pic)

I didn't win any money with mine, but I did win my highschool's costume competition XD

Not too shabby for a fifteen-year-old girl on a five dollar budget, I think.

youre right, a finished suit does go for more than that. but thats how much i spent to build it.

I won about $300 bucks.. The super huge party where I would have originally built the armor for got cancelled on the day of..well, there is always next year.. ;) To me, it wasn't about the money.. It was all the amazing people I met, the process of building and the result of having my very own armor.. All those times wishing and hoping for one soon.. I got my wish!! :D
