A peacock. A butterfly. A character in "The Great Gatsby." A body suit of his own face.

Those were just some of the submissions that were sent in by Times Free Press readers as part of our "Dress Cee Lo" contest.

Getting readers to put Cee Lo Green - who plays tonight at Riverbend - in whatever costume they wanted seemed appropriate since the singer is well-known for wearing whatever he wants whenever he wants.

The winner of "Dress Cee Lo," as judged by members of the Features department at the Times Free Press, was Harris Childers, who decided that a fashion peacock like Cee Lo might look good as a regular peacock. He was right.

We have included Childers' winning submission, as well as the best of the rest. When Cee Lo hits the stage tonight in Chattanooga, we'll see if he's taken any of his cues from these outfits.
