This year we could try to create our most original costumes ever, but how can we compete with this?
The costumes took 3 weeks to build, with each weighing 85lbs and requiring a car battery to be worn between the wearer’s legs. An iPhone 3GS is attached to a 42″ LCD screen (not touch screen, alas), turning the wearer into a human-sized iPhone. Co-creator John Savio writes:
This all started two years ago Reko Rivera and Bobby Hartman created a wearable large iPhone costume with a real 37″ lcd tv. An iPod was attached with a looping video of a real iphones screen in normal use. This time with the help of John Savio and John Matthews the team created yet another amazing rendition of the new iPhone 3GS…The team has about $2000 into the two costumes and has no regrets!

Speaking of costumes, our Griffin Flickr costume contest is wrapping up this Friday.
We’ve got a $300 shopping spree for the best costume, plus a few extra treats for our 2nd and 3rd place runner ups. Good luck!
