James Guariglia of Marine Park is a dead ringer for a cellphone as he parades his buzz-tastic self at the Kings Plaza Halloween contest, where his cool costume won him the top spot in his age group.

Trick-o-treating techie James Guariglia, 7, slammed down on the competition at Kings Plaza on Saturday with his spooktastic cellphone costume — a buzzworthy creation that gave the judges a blast.

“I was jumping for joy when they called my name!” extolled the thrill seeker from Marine Park, who was among the winners of the Mill Basin mall’s annual Halloween contest, a peeper-popping goggle-fest which doled out sweet eye candy to shoppers mesmerized by the cool kids who came dressed to thrill.

James — a master masquerader who has won other contests around town, including the Bay Ridge Ragamuffin Parade — strutted his cute, light-blinking, cardboard contraption alongside other phant-tastic frolickers. Those ghostly glad rags ran the gamut from Destin Smith’s howl-worthy reincarnation of a hatchet boy and a class of zombies from PS 207 to spellbinding Alexa Dorino, 10, of Marine Park, who got her ghoul on as a friendly witch.

Mood music only enhanced the excitement, which also featured a pumpkin-coloring tourney: Dancers from the Covenant Ballet Theatre of Brooklyn wigged out to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” putting patrons in the Halloween spirit with the tremulous, time-honored tune.

“It made an otherwise hectic shopping day a real treat!” quipped Flatbush customer Altovise Baxter.

Names of the other winners, all of whom received gift certificates and bragging rights, were unavailable at press time, but they left a boo-erific impression on the judges who were spoiled for choice, said Kings Plaza Marketing Director John Scaturro.

“The costumes were wonderful and original, and we were very impressed with the homemade ones!”
