Roo and Brighella here! As we wrap up the fall season, we’re also excited to share some of the amazing contest entries we had in October and November!
Huge congrats to Lconley, Josie M., Shelby Z., and Anne & Emily G. for winning the main categories! Now for the moment you’ve all been waiting for, let’s get into some of the wonderful entries submitted that blew us away and were runner ups in our voting process!
Best of Cosplay Contest!
Roo here! How fun and spooky are these cosplays below!? I do have to say one thing I loved most about these cosplays this year was the CREATIVITY and ORIGINALITY! If you love roaming the halls of Waverly Academy, the Bolet Mansion, and of course just hanging out in the classic Nancy Drew menu as much as I do, you are bound to enjoy these cosplays!
Charlotte M. | Abigail T. | Rachael E.
I have one word and one word only that comes to mind to describe these Minette cosplays: incredibly RUDE!
Jordan K. | Ireland D.
This cosplay of Shorty was absolutely amazing and as I have mentioned before about other things relating to Shadow Ranch, it is my favorite since it is not yelling at me about the vegetables not being ripe 😀 This video of Frances Humber also was so creative and fun! I really felt as if I was in the game again ready to find Dirk Valentine’s treasure.
Annette H. | Avery B.
This cosplay entry for Elinor Penvellyn faced-off in a Makeup SFX category tie-breaker!
Anna Elizabeth G.
Now, how fun are these cosplays of TWO different Janes? No spoilers here, but do you think there’s a conspiracy behind the name Jane in Nancy Drew games?! OOOooooOOO haha.
Amy K. |Elizabeth G.
But I do have to say these other incredible cosplays of Fiona, Nefertari, and Sonny Joon are making me think one thing’s for certain about Nancy Drew games – we have such fun characters and even more fun and creative fans that continue to WOW us every year!

Kassandra G. showed up very creatively with these two Nancy Drew book covers!
Of course we’ve got to give a shout out to this entry with the HeR logo and other videogame friends!
Beth H. sent this amazing pumpkin creation, complete with real clay molded pieces! Bet this was a breathtaking beachy decoration on the doorstep!
Here we’ve got some spooky ladies in the spotlight. All we need is Ethel sliding around the corner to complete the scare.
Madi T. | @Chantillymakes | Frankie M.
Finally here are some mythical monsters! Well, is Malone’s ghost dog Lucy a monster? Sally McDonald certainly thought so…
@KatiePaintie | Theresa N. | @Curlsbehindthecamera
