Fabulous Costume Movie Madness Tournament of Champions: Results Sweet Sixteen

21 Mar

Announcing your Division Champions! The results are getting tighter as the competition really heats up (with some exceptions. Sorry, Labyrinth) and I admit to being at a total loss as to what movie will come out on top. I’m stoked to find out, though.

A quick word on our tiebreaker: the tie-breaking poll ended in a tie, because you all like to see me twitch. But! I realized I had neglected to close the original poll, wherein Razzle Dazzle had just barely edged out 3:10 to Yuma, and will therefore advance to the next round. Sorry, Christian Bale. You’re still my imaginary boyfriend.
