Thank you to all that contributed!

Greetings all, and welcome to the First Elftown Halloween Costume Competition. Every Halloween, there's contests for Art and Poetry, but we all know Halloween is about the dressing up and getting Candy or scaring the crap out of people! I know the Dressing UP is my favorite part. Putting time and effort into a costume and then showing it off. And that's what this contest is all about!

- Costumes must be put together and designed by you. No Store Bought (definition of Store Bought further down) or Rentals. That's cheating since it had nothing to do with originality on your part.
- Maximum of 3 pictures per person, all of the same costume.
- No pics of someone elses costume.
- A drawing of a costume doesn't count. Anyone can draw a costume up in less than ten minutes. But If it's the drawing of what your costume is based off of, it's allowed, but it counts for one of the three pictures you're allowed to upload. This is only allowed if you already have a photo of the same costume uploaded.
- Must be a 2004 Halloween costume, not some Cosplay costume you wore two years ago, unless it's the same costume you wore for this halloween.


And for you people who don't qualify but want to show your costume, instead of breaking the rules and uploading a rental or store bought costume, you can Show Off Your Costume here. In that wiki you're also free to upload pics of your children or friends, but there'll be a limit to that to save space.


Store Bought Costume Definition

A Store bought costume is the type you get at Walmart, already sown together and all you have to do is put it on, maybe add a cape and wig and voila! The only way a store bought costume is allowed is if it's been modified enough to actually look like some effort was put into the costume.

Home Made

Either sown by you, or modified versions of other cloths to make a costume. Knick Knacks from one store, a mask from another, a shirt here, some tape there, spray painting something and taping it together to turn it into something completly new. That's originality! And that's what this competition is all about.

So Enough Of The Rules, Let's Have Some Fun!



1. [Theben] - Ash from "Evil Dead"

2. [Cathos] I'm going to wear pale make up with it and be a ghost.

16. [Sylraïana] Owkey, I gotta dump the hat, it's supposed to be something like my Char, but it wasn't and isn't so now it's just a plain old Witch... (If I take of the hat I'll become even more... eh... ugly...) I made it all by myself. Only the shoes and the fabric were bought... It's a dark blue fabric with a transparent on top in the skirt. On the transparent there are these sweet, dark blue leaves and stuff....

21. [Yiwerra]
It's "corpse paint" like Black Metal People use to wear it on stage and in the forests.

So i kinda went as a female Black Metal Fellow.
I mean, they're a pretty scary species - usually have inhuman attitudes and philosophies, are brutal and aggresiv, make noise, and smell....
like orcs pretty much.
Hail norway.

It seems I have strange posture. Oh well.

2004-11-22 [vagabond faery]: how do we know who won? I'll admit, I kinda hope that [werethylacine] will win, her costume is so much cooler than mine. Oh well.

2004-11-22 [Sotalean]: I think that they're still either or have forgotten. O_o

2004-11-22 [werethylacine]: Hehe, thankee! I've been hoping that [The Blonde Witch] wins, actually... that dress she made is gorgeous. But not made out of a bath-towel!

2004-11-22 [irulan]: Working on it - results will be up later this evening

2004-11-22 [Minotaur Queen]: results or the voting?

2004-11-22 [irulan]: Results. Voting was conducted by the Assembly. :)

2004-11-22 [Minotaur Queen]: Oh ok I wasnt sure if we were going to vote like the Elftown merchandise competition. now I see we arent I cant wait to see who won.(not me at least i dont think so)

2004-11-23 [irulan]: Okay, I'm sooo sorry to jack everyone around yet again...but due to lack of participation in voting I am going to post a poll and everyone will be able to vote. I should have time to get the poll up tomorrow evening.

2004-11-23 [irulan]: Poll is up. I apologize again everyone!!

2004-11-23 [moira hawthorne]: so rite dont worry about it... =D

2004-11-24 [The Blonde Witch]: we shouldn't vot though, should we?

2004-11-24 [Cathos]: I voted, but not for myself. :) That wouldn't be fair.

2004-11-24 [The Blonde Witch]: But of course ^^

2004-12-01 [Cathos]: Can someone put a link up on mainstreet for the poll? It started as a mainstreet competition. This would make the voting more fair. Some of us don't have a huge friends list of people to scam into voting for us.

2004-12-01 [irulan]: This is actually not a Mainstreet Competition. It was just a contest that a member of the Assembly wanted to run as an extra with the Halloween Art & Poetry Competitions. The Art Competition was voted upon by the Council & Assembly, the Poem competition was judged by the Daily Poem Team. Unfortunately, the member who started this contest had to leave Elftown temporarily for real life issues, before he left he didn't have time to tell us what he wanted to do with the voting etc. So this is what I decided to do to try and wrap this contest up. I apologize! And to be honest, even if it were a poll on Mainstreet it would probably still turn into a popularity contest. :/ 

2004-12-01 [irulan]: I don't know that for sure obviously, but just a hunch...

2004-12-01 [irulan]: And also, it looks like the winner's relation list isn't all that long either. 

2004-12-02 [Theben]: am I being accused of something?

2004-12-02 [Sunrose]: No, [Cathos] merely means it would have been more fair if more people had known there was a vote for this competition. [irulan] solved the situation she thought was best, next year we might do it differently. There are always new contests to participate in, so I would like to ask of you all to try and keep peace about this. The comment of [Cathos] has been noted, no need to start a fight about it :)

2004-12-02 [irulan]: No, not in the least [Theben]! :)

2004-12-02 [Cathos]: Not accusing anyone of anything. Well done for winning.
