The Winner (and First Runner Up) of the Mercury's Cross-Dress Your Pet Photo Contest!

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Thu, Apr 11, 2013 at 11:14 AM

As you know, in honor of the Mercury's first annual Pets Issue, we held a "Cross Dress Your Pet" photo contest, in which readers submitted photos of their pets dressed as another type of animals. And boy did you guys produce (mostly dogs in bee costumes, but still!). It was a squee-filled decision-making process, but eventually we found a winner: Herbie the Three-Toed Box Turtle Dressed as a Pterodactyl by Allyson Barlow and Drew Clark!


Pretty tits, right? However Herbie won by a razor-thin margin over our stupid-cute first runner-up, who you can and should introduce yourself to behind the cut. Oh and for those of us to whom this kind of thing never gets old, I'll be posting runners up all dang week. Squee!
