Meet the winners of the Banner-News Costume Contest!

Meet the winners (without their disguises!) of the Banner-News Halloween Costume Contest! Left to right are first place winner Riley McCook, 6, with mother Mitzi McCook; second place winner Tate Walthall, 1, with mother Ashley Walthall; and third place winner Linley Grace Leak, eight weeks, with mother Amber Leak. We asked the mothers about the costumes and learned that Riley's 'Rileybot' was hand-designed by him and made by his mother. It featured working parts including pieces that rotated and lit up! Tate's 'Rodeo Clown' costume was inspired by his love for the animals on his family's farm, his mother said. And Linley's mother said her tiny mermaid costume was made by a southern woman and purchased online. Congratulations to all three! And don't forget: you still have a chance to cast your own vote for the People's Choice winner at our Facebook page!
