The party of all parties has come to an end at the Wellington Sevens, but who were our winners from the whole ordeal?

We have at least some of the answers.

The Peter Jackson award for best execution in costume

International Man of Mystery Austin Powers and All Black legend Josh Kronfeld officially thought the Snow Domes were king so who am I to disagree?

The crew of eight, who all live in Wellington, won a total of $15,000 for being named the Costume Catwalk supreme winners and best group winners to boot. They took creativity to a whole new level and were definitely worthy of the spoils.

Honourable mention: 50 Shades of Grey, who won best female costume.

Check out a video of the Costume Catwalk winners and reaction from the Snow Domes here .
