Few costumes this year will top the intricacy or geekiness of Reko Rivera and John Savio's $2,000 masterpieces, built over 90 hours from the messy man-cave that is Savio's room in his parents' Palm Harbor home.

Using iPhones on their shoulders and jump-starters between their legs, the tech-heads can output the popular iPhone 3GS onto man-sized screens. Their torsos glow with text messages, maps and phone calls. Needless to say, they attract a lot of attention.

The video of Savio, 24, and Rivera, 23, dancing has been viewed more than 300,000 times, fueled by posts on tech blogs like Alltop, Gizmodo and Engadget and jeered by commenters around the world.

Love the guyPhone costumes? Give them a thumbs up.
