Robot Costume Contest

Hey guys!

If anyone is interested (and has mad costume-making skills), ezrobot is running a costume competition for Halloween! It can be any robot, it does not have to be an ezrobot. :) You can win some credit, and we would love to see some submissions from Let's Make Robots!
