Pangaea Space Odyssey victor!

Just stealing first place, ‘Princess Leia’ a.k.a. Toby Parkes has been crowned the Pangaea: Space Odyssey fancy dress victor

Once again The Mancunion teamed up with the Students’ Union for this January’s Pangaea event, Space Odyssey. We found hundreds of both the best and most disastrous solo costumes for the galactic theme and gave you our top ten to vote upon to decide who should be crowned our Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic.

The voting closed last Thursday and over 1300 of you cast your vote online.

We can now announce that with 30 per cent of the vote you decided to crown Princess Leia, a.k.a. Toby Parkes, is our Pangaea fancy dress victor!

Toby has won two tickets for this Summer’s Pangaea event. To get your tickets please contact Joel Smith the Activities and Development Officer for the Student Union closer to the event.

Your runners up were, in a close second Wall-E, a.k.a. Jake Shearer with 29.1 per cent, and in third place The Mustach-tronaut (thank you Sam), with 26.7 per cent of the vote.

All the photographs we took during the evening can be seen on The Mancunion’s Facebook page.
