Costume Contest Winners

In a field packed with creative entries, two pugs in particular stood out for their clever interpretations of the Pug City Comic Con theme:


First place was awarded to Maxwell Von Snort, dressed as Nick Furry: Agent of S.H.E.D., accompanied by Simon Finger and Ashley Sue Masoomian of the Pearl District in Portland (pictured, top left). This is the third time they have entered the Pug Crawl costume contest and their first win.


First runner up went to Merryweather, dressed as K-9 from Doctor Who (pictured, bottom left), accompanied by Cameron James (as the Eleventh Doctor) and Jessica James (as the TARDIS), residents of the St. John's neighboorhood in Portland. This was their fourth time attending Pug Crawl.
