Win toys and custom art from Patricio Oliver

New contest from Kidrobot:

Patricio Oliver’s Cucos are the unique and bizarre children that live on the edge of the Dark Forest and spread madness and horror to everyone they encounter. These diminutive deviants are looking for new playmates to join in their demented games. Are you evil enough to be a Child of the Dark Forest?

Enter the Cucos: Costume Contest. Dress up as your own original character that fits in the Cucos world. All entries will be judged solely by Cucos creator Patricio Oliver based on creativity, uniqueness, overall effort and, ahem, execution.

Only one entry per person. You may submit up to two (2) photos of your costume. All photos must be of YOU and must be recent—so no costumes from All Hallows Eves past. Be creative and crafty. Add makeup and accessories to totally immerse yourself in the Cucos world!

The Grand Prize is original art of YOU as a Cucos created by Patricio Oliver, plus a complete set of Cucos Mini Figures! Two runners-up will receive a decked-out Halloween goodie bag plus a $25 Kidrobot Gift Card!

All entries must be received by 5pm on 11/2/09. Winners will be announced on the KRonikle on 11/4/09. Kidrobot reserves the right to use all submitted images on and the KRonikle.
You can see more photos of the vinyl toys here, and here's Patricio's Flickr gallery.
