We’ve decided to have our first ever Halloween contest! It’s similar to the holiday decorating contest that we had last year. (Oh, I was mistaken, we had a contest last year. Mrs.DG started it. http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/halloween-costume-contest)
You can post your pictures here on this thread or if you want to be really nice. You can submit your pictures to [email address removed] by Sunday, November 6th.
The hostesses will vote on all of the entries and the top 10 or so entries will be posted for the whole hive to vote. (Depends on the number of entries we get.)
The winner of each category will win a prize. (Prizes TBD)
Here are the categories
- Best Halloween costume (includes individual, couples, pets, kids costumes)
- Best Halloween decoration (pumpkin carvings, indoor and outdoor home decorating)
We may break the categories up, if we get a ton of entries for one specific category. Oh, and to be fair, we won’t allow members to win more than one prize.
Once again, please post or submit photos by Sunday, November 6th.
Oh, please be nice and don’t post a thousand pictures of your pumpkin. 1 (large) or 2 (small) pictures of each specific category is fine. Remember, I have take screenshots of the entries. It would really help me out if you follow these guidelines.
ETA: If you need to resize your photos, follow the directions here. http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/how-to-resize-a-photo-1
Oh, if you email me, don’t forget to tell me your WB name.
Have fun! I can’t wait to see everyone’s entries!

Could’ve sworn we had this contest last year, too. I submitted a pic of my daughter and was told all the kids won because they were all so cute (plus there weren’t that many entered). I was told I’d receive a WB t-shirt as a prize, but I never did.

Hmm, I totally forgot about that. Mrs.DG started last year’s contest. Let me contact her and I’ll find out about your t-shirt.

Yeah, after exchanging several PMs with Mrs. DG (Vicki) —the last one she sent was in mid Dec. saying she was still checking on it— I decided to just let it go, lol, because I didn’t want to fuss over a free t-shirt. I’ll still enter this year’s contest though.

I won the Christmas Contests and never got my t-shirt either. I asked once and was told it was being shipped that week. When I didn’t receive it, I just let it go.

I paper mached my pumpkin with leopard print gift tissue paper.
This is my homemade loofah costume… complete with bubbles and bubble earings. I also carried around a bottle of blowing bubbles 😀

Haha, I was Minnie Mouse last year (not a slutty version, I made my own costume).
I’ll be busy getting married and having a honeymoon that week though… so no costumes or decorations this year! 😀

- Wedding: February 2013 - Colonial Country Club, Ft. Myers, FL
This is RIGHT up my alley. My fiancee and I just went to an event in Downtown Fort Myers, FL called Zombicon. It commemorates the anniversary of Dawn of the Dead, which was filmed there. Every year, everyone dresses up as zombies and there is always a theme. This years theme was “Old Hollywood Never Dies”. I went as Gypsy Rose Lee (the famous burlseque performer) and Fiance went as Charlie Chaplin.
I made both costumes myself and did all the makeup and hair 🙂
