The Burning Chest Hair Dudes

I regret not being able to make it to the costume contest at this year's Emerald City Comic Con.
I managed to see quite a few good costumes while I was walking around the floor, but there were quite a few I missed that were actually in the contest.

Including these two guys(?):

That is glitter the guy blows out onto the audience and look really close (around 1:20) to see the one guy light his chest hair on fire.

Umm... WTF?
Does this really qualify for a comic book convention COSTUME contest?
Does anybody that WAS there care to elaborate?

4 things people had to say:

Jeez...these conventions will just let anyone in these days, huh? :)

You can thank Ren for making me get up close and personal to these two clowns during the contest. Due to being up front to keep people from falling off the stage I got glitter all over me and got to smell the wonderful charred chest hair. Next year we need an ECCC volunteer to monitor costumes as "lack of a costume is not a costume." Neither is regular street clothes -- Yes, I'm talking to you Harley Quinn!

Wait...Harley Quinn...sans costume...I need to lie down...

The Harley Quinn of ECCC '08 looked as much as Harley as I do of Brad Pitt -- which is not at all!
