Last week we set up a cosplay competition based around Miriam Black – the unfortunate star of Chuck Wendig’s Blackbirds and Mockingbird. Like iO9, we thought Miriam would not attract any cosplayers, and I (Angry Robot editor, Lee) was pretty certain I’d have to dress up as Miriam, just so we’d have something to post, here. Thankfully, the world has been spared that!

Chuck and I were so impressed by the quality of the photos we received that we have decided to award prizes to two entrants.

First up, Amber Love. Now, unbeknownst to us, Amber had already had a Miriam Black cosplay photoshoot earlier in the year – you can see the entire album here. The photo to the right is one of our favourites.

(And anyone who enters a Miriam Black competition and finishes the email with Now fuck off! deserves extra points for staying in character!)

Our second winner is Lena Griffin, whose co-winning entry is below.

A care package of Angry Robot goodies is on its way to both of you! Congratulations!
