Amoeba Music San Francisco celebrated Halloween 2013 with their notoriously competitive costume contest upon the Amoeba stage. In the past, we've seen fierce competition in the form of many creatures from The Ancient Mariner to Nicki Minaj. This year proved to be another nail-biter for the three judges (Tony, David, and Gabe) as the competition brought it again! Employees and customers competed for fabulous Amoeba Gift Certificates, so a lot was at stake!
DJ Kells Bells was scheduled to DJ the spooktacular event, but much to everyone's surprise two new DJs -- Yip and Yip -- arrived instead and played intergalactic hits of the past five decades.
The contestants were introduced by the mistress of ceremonies, Lobster Girl, who had just returned from fighting crime under the sea. Let's review the competition...
Amoeba employee Julian adorned himself as Lord Summerisle from The Wicker Man.
Aaron of Amoeba's DVD Room showed off some fancy footwork as Speed Racer!
Amoeba customer Tracy rocked it as Raggedy Ann.
Amoeba's own Carly channeled the sardonic Daria of the late-'90's MTV series.
And does this guy look familiar?
It's because Amoeba's Ryan is portraying Bad Guy In Every '80's Movie #3!
But when it came time to vote, third place was awarded to Emily the Plague Doctor!
Second place went to our surprise DJs Yip & Yip! (Only Yip pictured below.)
And first place was went to the most spectacular costume of all...
Easter Island Bunny worn by Amoeba customer Mike!
