The winner from our LittleBigPlanet Costume Competition talks about the winning design, which is now available on PlayStation Store.
In September 2008, eu.playstation.com hosted a LittleBigPlanet Costume Competition, in which entrants were asked to send in designs for a new outfit for either Sackboy or Sackgirl.
With over 500 entries from across the PAL region, developer Media Molecule had their work cut out picking the winner, and finally settled on the Sack-Eating Plant Costume created by Forum member Ayumi82 from Spain.
Describing her creation, Ayumi82 said: "I think it's funny, eye catching and striking, mixing well with the natural environment of our hero, so humans can't see him. It has vines hanging from both sides, simulating whips to protect the flower pot. The head is a huge mouth with teeth, and in-between them you can see the eyes of Sackboy. In the top part it has small prickles to protect him from the enemies, and finally I added some decorative leaves, as the plant itself is really beautiful."
The inspiration for the costume came from "a small carnivorous plant my mum bought for me...when I saw it eating flies, I found it so amazing that I thought the carnivorous plant costume would be original and funny."
Talking about LittleBigPlanet in general, Ayumi82 said: "Firstly, the graphic presentation is great and it captivates your attention from the very moment you see it. The other thing is the high level of interaction and great variety of themes that are reflected in the different levels I was able to try. I would also like to mention the individuality of the different characters, as it's very difficult to find two similar ones, so players will constantly find it interesting. Finally, LBP offers the possibility of open-ended play, with the ability to create new levels, so it's a game you will never forget in a drawer."
Thank you to Ayumi82 and all the other people who entered the competition. To download this costume, as well as a host of others for LittleBigPlanet, visit PlayStation Store with your PlayStation 3.
