Entrants included a mermaid man, a penguin and movie favorites such as Batman, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle and Star Wars storm troopers.

A hotdog and cheeseburger buddy pair dived with their ketchup and mustard condiments.

The contest’s host, Rainbow Reef Dive Center, is offering social media users a chance to vote for their favorite costumed diver on their Instagram page.
