Contest Moderators [wicked fae mage]

Please read the [#RULES] before entering!


Rules:

1. Costumes must have been put together and designed by YOU. No store-bought, rentals or otherwise pre-made costumes are not allowed. A heavily modified pre-made costume may be allowed if the moderator thinks significant and sufficient alterations have been made. This will be decided on a case-to-case basis. A costume will be considered designed by you if it is either sewn by you, or made using modified versions of other clothes: 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 completely new. That's originality! And that's what this competition is all about.

2. Each member may submit two (2) entries.

3. Maximum three (3) photos per entry. They must all be of the same costume.

4. Entry must be uploaded to Elftown. To upload your image full-size you can use the feature 'Upload a folder of images' that is shown on your house.
This feature allows you to upload one, multiple images or zip-files in their original size to a wikipage.
<URL:upload_zip.html>
Once you click this link you can follow the instructions. See also uploading images.

5. Vote-mongering: Asking people to vote for you is not allowed. You may ask people to vote in the poll in general, but not specifically for you.

6. Queries: If you wish to discuss something about how the contest is run, or the rules, then please use the official contest forum: <forum:Elftown contests>! If you wish to bring up a query about whether a certain entry fits the theme, please speak up before the entries make it to the polls. You can still speak up even after the contest is closed, as long as the polls have not yet gone up yet. Complaints received after the aforementioned will not be considered valid. However, if you wish to query whether an entry is stolen art or breaks any other rules, you may still bring this up after the poll has been made.

2006-10-08 [Keseken]: Hey hey! Question. My sister and I are being equal and yet opposing faeries. We're both making our costumes. Are we allowed to enter the contest together, as one entry?

2006-10-08 [Sunrose]: Are you both making your own costume? And does she agree to entering the contest?

2006-10-08 [Keseken]: Yup. We're both making them, and she wants to enter the contest, with or without me.

2006-10-08 [Sunrose]: The only problem I see is with voting: We don't be able to vote for just one costume if you're both in the picture..

2006-10-08 [Keseken]: Well, that was the question, in a sort of roundabout way. Can we be voted for as one item?

2006-10-08 [Sunrose]: No, since both of you are making your own entry: both of your entries will have to be accessible to the voting separately..

2006-10-10 [drakkar]: so army fatigues would fall under the no go category?

2006-10-10 [Sunrose]: What exactly are those?

2006-10-10 [Ravenclaw]: BDU's camo that the armed forces wear. And IMHO I would doubt they could qualify. They are factory made. Just like a pair of jeans or a jacket

2006-10-10 [Sunrose]: And they're not very Halloweenish..

2006-10-10 [drakkar]: *shruggs* k

2006-10-10 [Ravenclaw]: I bet they'd allow them if you did some major modifications. Like an undead soldier or a Viet Nam victum, with blood and guts n stuff

2006-10-10 [drakkar]: alright i will keep that in mind. I was thinking more along the lines of a sniper who hd passed but all good ideas

2006-10-11 [Stratakus]: I've got a friend who's doing that. He's even making himself one of those coverings with the tattered material to hide his silohette.

2006-10-11 [drakkar]: ghille suit very useful device still gotta see if i can get someone to shoot a hole through the head of this helmet though

2006-10-11 [Ravenclaw]: the caliber depends on the size of the hole you want, don't forget. but you can always get those magnet decals for you car that look like bullet holes. it would probably be more nticable if you've gut the usual ghilly work for the helmet

2006-10-11 [drakkar]: yeah but i was thinking a hole through the helmet with some plaster putty filled with stage blood

2006-10-12 [Ravenclaw]: ooooh

2006-10-12 [drakkar]: problem being i have to wait until my dads next training day to get his sniper to blow a hole through it.....assuming he will agree to it in the first place

2006-10-13 [Ravenclaw]: Dad's training day . . . humm . . . So I suppose that your dad is a military officer. Why not just get him to shoot it for you? Or you might try hunting shops. I know that some who sell weapons also have shooting ranges. Under controled conditions you might get someone to shoot it for you.

2006-10-13 [Sunrose]: Please move this to a private conversation, thank you ^_^'

2006-10-13 [drakkar]: .> right sorry bout that

2006-10-13 [Stratakus]: Now I'm torn about what to do for Halloween. I was thinking either Cid Highwind from Advent Children. I even bought a skin tight blue t-shirt from the second hand store and a beige work shit to wrap aroudn my waist. I still need work gloves and such... but then I found an awsome executioner mask, and my old house, The 476, is having a Steam Punk halloween theme where midevil meets modern...

2006-10-13 [Stratakus]: But I will also be working for the entire week that we would be able to have a halloween party and as much as I love dressing up for halloween, I just don't feel the drive to dress up if I'm not going to be showing it off to a crowd...

2006-10-14 [Ravenclaw]: my bad

2006-10-20 [Surimia]: hey, i need help here- im a narutard, and i wanna do sakura from that, but the prob is no one in my neighborhood watches the show, and all my otaku friends at school live to far away to do a group theme. i wanted to do something lotr-ish, maybe a ninja elf, but the shopa are all waaaay too expenxive... i need help!

2006-10-20 [Lothuriel]: You might find some ideas here http://www.orenoque.com/halloween-crafts/

2006-10-20 [Surimia]: mm...dont really know, was hoping for suggestions for something i could throw together...

2006-10-20 [Lothuriel]: Oh, hmm. I don't know then. Not much really just short of buying a premade costume. Sorry.

2006-10-21 [eyes of frost]: Question: Do you think we could extend the deadline maybe another day or two? I don't have the materials yet for my costume and well...I don't think it will be done before the deadline...

2006-10-21 [Sunrose]: We could perhaps do that for the costume competition :)

2006-10-21 [eyes of frost]: THANKYOU!!!! *hugs teh Debby*

2006-10-22 [sexy_gothic_babe]: I have a question. As far as the store bought costums go can it be like Regular clothes that you bought at wallmart but they are not like supossed to be together?

2006-10-23 [Sunrose]: Combining regular clothes still makes it store bought: you have to modify the whole costume enough, to show you put effort in it.

2006-10-23 [Sunrose]: Note: Deadline changed to the 29th of October

2006-10-23 [eyes of frost]: Thanks!

2006-10-23 [Moonlit Serenade]: This may sound really stupid, but under your home-made definition, you say, 'sown,' but it's really, 'sewn.' Not trying to be picky! It's just something silly I noticed after reading it like... three times in a row... ^^

2006-10-24 [Stratakus]: I don't know how to sow, let alone spell it. Hehe... And I can't even Edit the page.

2006-10-24 [Moonlit Serenade]: Well, it seems to me that sewing consists of poking your hands with needles. A lot. And getting an askew piece of something in return. Or perhaps that's just me. :)

2006-10-24 [sexy_gothic_babe]: Well good luck to all. I cant enter -tear tear- LMAO jk. it is all cool.

2006-10-25 [eyes of frost]: Blah...my grandmother is still not back from North Carolina with the material for my costume. I will never get it done. *sighs*

2006-10-25 [sexy_gothic_babe]: Aw i am sorry. What was you going to make?

2006-10-25 [eyes of frost]: I was going to make a witch sotume but it was...well I have the drawing but I can't enter that without the costume. I was going to go and buy devil horns and some black wings for it, yes I know witches don't have wings but this costume does. Lol.

2006-10-25 [sexy_gothic_babe]: haha that sounds wicked.

2006-10-26 [eyes of frost]: It will e once I get the stuff to make it. Phht.

2006-10-26 [sexy_gothic_babe]: Lol. hope you get it soon. Gosh i am still trying to think of a way to make my costum to where i can be on here. Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

2006-10-26 [eyes of frost]: You'll think of something! :)

2006-10-26 [sexy_gothic_babe]: Nope i dont think i will. sadly. lol.

2006-10-29 [eyes of frost]: Sorry Debby for asking for an entension and then not putting up my costume. I STILL son't have the material I need. *sigh*

2006-10-29 [Moonlit Serenade]: Is there a certain time of the day it has to be submited by? Or just by the end of the 29th?

2006-10-29 [Sunrose]: Before midnight, end of the day.
I might change the deadline again though..

2006-10-30 [Stratakus]: Looks like I won't be making the competition again this year. My cloak won't be ready until tomorrow. Oh well, I'll still show it off if all works well. It's fine by me though if I don't get to enter. Poopooheaded friends never told me the halloween party was yesterday until I asked for confirmation that it was on Tuesday. "Um... no it's tonight. I guess we forgot to tell ya"

2006-10-30 [Sunrose]: I changed the deadline to 2nd of November this morning ;)

2006-10-30 [sexy_gothic_babe]: Sweetness.

2006-10-30 [sexy_gothic_babe]: I might beable to enter then.

2006-10-30 [peacefrog]: *sigh* I wish the deadline was the 2nd last year.

2006-10-30 [sexy_gothic_babe]: lol hhy is that

2006-10-30 [playslashwrite]: i suppose it is out of the question to send in an entry with my big bad wolf costume that is partly store bought and partly assembled right? (see pics on my house:p)

2006-10-30 [Sunrose]: It should be modified enough to call it your own, I can't really tell from the pictures on your house if that is the case..

2006-10-30 [Stratakus]: Actually, I just finished my halloween costume. It took 3 hours to make the cloak but it's done and will be on before midnight
As of the time I post this, how much more time do I have before it'll be too late to enter?

2006-10-30 [Sunrose]: As I said the deadline is 2nd of November (end of the day) :P
Because more people should get a chance to upload their costume, most will not actually wear them until Halloween day...

2006-10-31 [Stratakus]: Ah. Must have missed that update... My credit card hurts from paying for material for the cloak...

2006-10-31 [playslashwrite]: the storebought stuff itself is not modified since it is perfect as it is already; im just combining it with other stuff ^^ and i suppose the store bought thing counts for complete costumes, which mine is not..

2006-10-31 [eyes of frost]: YAY! That means I can take a picture of the costume I thought up today and put it up thre! WOOT!

2006-10-31 [iippo]: Yay! Thank you for the extension! I might actually for once in my life be able to enter this!

2006-10-31 [Sunrose]: Well, combining things doesn't exactly make it truely yours :/

2006-10-31 [playslashwrite]: ah hell forget it.. not going to enter.. there.. problem solved:)

2006-11-01 [Elisha Kelly]: can it be something I made for my daughter? or does it have to be made for yourself?

2006-11-01 [Sunrose]: Tricky question, you made it but it's not you in the picture.
But I think it should be OK, since you did make it :)

2006-11-01 [sexy_gothic_babe]: Wow that would be a tricky question. lol.

2006-11-01 [Elisha Kelly]: yay!!!!

2006-11-02 [sexy_gothic_babe]: Lol.

2006-11-10 [Sunrose]: The winners are on Mainstreet ;)

2006-11-10 [Ilana]: Sweet!

2006-11-10 [peacefrog]: Hm, I completely missed all the voting.

2006-11-10 [Sunrose]: The voting was only done by the Council and Assembly (which is actually mentioned in the news :)

2006-11-10 [moira hawthorne]: WAIS HAIL.. CONGRATS TO [Ilana] FOR BEST COSTUME "Tonel'ma the twi'lek"
AND
[~Lady Morgana~] FOR BEST MAKEUP "The Joker"


2006-11-10 [Elisha Kelly]: congrats to the winners :D

2006-11-11 [Ilana]: Thankies! :D

2007-09-22 [Sunrose]: This contest has been opened for 2007 entries! :)

2007-09-23 [XxTsomexX]: I'm gonna try this one too... Im being a pirate this year...

2007-09-23 [Mortified Penguin]: I want one of those penguin badges... it'll look good with my collection.

2007-09-24 [Sunrose]: Then be sure to submit your Halloween costume :P

2007-09-29 [Danboo]: im being a ninja this year

2007-10-01 [cryingfifteenth]: Zomg! I'm so gonna show off my Unicorn dressed up as a food service worker costume on this!

2007-10-02 [irulan]: I'm going to have two different costumes this year (different parties), what is the entry limit? Still just one right?

2007-10-02 [Sunrose]: Rules say 3 pictures per person :P

2007-10-04 [TheKingdomLight]: darm -.-

2007-10-06 [Elisha Kelly]: I made my daughter a Lady Amalthea costume! it's awesome!

2007-10-06 [james2777]: humm ok can it be of our dog  as we name a baseball coustom for him complete with hat and a jersey make by us. yes evan me I was told it would be smart to learn how to saw uggh

2007-10-06 [Sunrose]: You have to submit a picture of the costume that you are wearing yourself..
Maybe we should add a section where people can add the costumes of their partners, kids and pets :)

2007-10-06 [james2777]: ok that would be good if its possible to have a sub contest also for pets exc but thats your call :)

2007-10-09 [Lothuriel]: I always assumed the contest was for costumes we design and create ourselves. Perhaps next year we could omit the "wearing yourself" clause. We have a year to decide, no?

2007-10-09 [Sunrose]: The point though is to show your costume :/
Rule 5 at least refers to something 'you wore', not something you only designed and created..

2007-10-10 [Lothuriel]: I was talking about for next year...not this year.

2007-10-10 [Sunrose]: Ah I misunderstood you, sorry :)

2007-10-10 [Lothuriel]: <img:stuff/dand-gif.gif>

2007-10-11 [Erubeus]: I only have a picture of her so far in her horns cause the rest of the outfit isn't done...
Is that fine if I just have her head shot in a photo and put it up?

2007-10-11 [Sunrose]: Who is 'her'? You are supposed to put pictures of yourself in costume in this contest.. :)

2007-10-11 [Maeve104]: *giggles* Penguin badge! ooh! I'm entering. :D

2007-10-22 [ArchRose]: So wait, I am a little confused. And please no one yell at me because I've had a really rough past few weeks and I'm kinda out of it. The costumes we submit has to follow the halloween theme? Is that correct, or is the halloween kinda like a guide line for if you want to enter and don't know what to do. Because I really want to enter, since I've put so much time into my costume, I'm going to be Sailor Pluto off of the anime Sailor Moon. 8 of my friends and I are going trick or treating together as the Sailor Scouts. So could I enter the contest with my outfit or not?

2007-10-22 [Sunrose]: The theme is something you can use, but you're not obligated to. Of course it should be a costume you are going to wear for Halloween :)

2007-10-22 [cryingfifteenth]: XD
I'm so excited... I got my wings... My costume is almost complete.

2007-10-31 [Elisha Kelly]: okay I am also confused... last year we could enter pics of costumes we made ourselves, but not necessarily were for ourselves. Halloween isn't big is australia, so it really isn't worth the cost of me making a costume for me. The ONLY reason I make a Halloween costume for the kids is because they have a do up at the school... and I can add it to their dress-up collection. I just feel that that particular rule isn't really fair to cultures who don't celebrate Halloween in that sort of way.

2007-10-31 [Mortified Penguin]: I got a picture of myself with my costume... I'll upload it tomorrow... maybe...

2007-10-31 [Sunrose]: A long time ago it was decided to celebrate Halloween on Elftown. Halloween, as well as Christmas and Valentines, isn't celebrated in many countries at all.
This part of the contest is about the tradition of costumes, there are many people who participate who don't actually celebrate it in that way either.
Anyway, I felt costumes for pets would become too far fetched. I didn't remember exactly what we did last year, maybe we can fix something up.

2007-10-31 [Stratakus]: I wish I had more time to make a Contest worthy costume, but I just covered a ripped tuxedo shirt in fake blood and said I was attacked by a werewolf. And then the stripping started....

2007-11-01 [Elisha Kelly]: I realise that, but it isn't worth the cost and effort for me to make a costume for myself just for this comp... but I don't mind making the kids costumes :D becasue they use them all the time, not just for their halloween disco. Some people make costumes for others, and not themselves. I just think it strange not to allow a costume I made myself from scratch, even though it is for someone else to wear. I go through all the same creative processes as someone who went and made one for themselves. 

2008-01-01 [Sunrose]: The rules are fixed for next year :)

2008-09-24 [james2777]: ok asked last year so i`ll ask again this year. can I submit a costume of our pet ( dog) which go`s our with us every year and i make something for him every year. I see where there is a comment about pets and our own ammusment. But our dog is part of the family and go`s on several events a year. So amusement is not valid at all. alot of work go`s into these it is not a pet -co store bought idem it is done complety by hand. this would be the 3rd year in a row i have requested to do this. as he is part of the family he should qualify. this year he will go out wearing a white coustom with an complete sewed on eagle with an american flag and the twin towers in the back ground with the words " NEVER FORGET 9-11-2001" under the scean...this is not a store bought idem nor is it a throw together idem took about 3 weeks to but this together.. with a silk top and felt underling as not to rub against him a blue lining all around the idem and vercro strap binding. will to send you pictures of this idem [Sunrose] so you can see what i mean. so i`m asking to be included in the contest. overall voteing says who wins anywsy. thank you J

2008-09-24 [Lothuriel]: Sorry [james2777] but, pet photos are still not allowed into this competition. I understand how you feel about your pet and I know that the majority of us, on the Crew, have pets that are loved just the same as your dog. But, this is a rule that we feel we cannot bend on. Although your dog may be more than willing and happy to don a beautiful hand-made costume, many other pets are not so eager and willing. We don't want to encourage the type of situation where someone may torture or annoy a pet just for a few good giggles, making the argument of "amusment" a valid one. 

The other reason is that pet photos are far too easily faked.  There are just far too many pets who can look nearly identical to others of the same breed so, it might be tempting for a pet owner to find some random photo and claim it as their own furry friend.

2008-09-24 [james2777]: simple put a proof pic with it a sign saying elftown with the pic :) .... or have a seperate contest for pets also or a seperate division as you have one for coustoms and one for make up. a proof pic with elftown on it shows its real.. hay i`m trying at least

2008-09-24 [Lothuriel]: ^__^ I agree that it would be lovely to see people's pets all dressed up but, there are a lot of crazies out there...not saying you would do anything mean to your dog. I can tell by your profile/house that you love your pet very much!

2008-09-24 [james2777]: ya cappers is very much involved with our family twice a year he go`s to shea stadium with the new york mets and walks the field and i made the jersey, ya i  know a guy that can sew ha the world is comming to an end but i learned it in school and an elective so might as well use it

2008-10-23 [Flisky]: I have a wee bit of a problem. My costume won't be finished until the 30th, and I'm leaving home on the 29th. I won't be back until the 3rd, but still want to enter. What should I do?

2008-10-24 [Stratakus]: I'm sure it's going to take some people more than a few days to get the pics of heir costumes uploaded. Then we'll have to give people time to vote so I suggest we give people a week to upload their photos before the voting starts. Isn't that how we always do it?

2008-10-25 [Elisha Kelly]: okay. I see that there are make up and costume sections. Is it possible to enter both? and if you are able to enter both does it have to be the same costume?

this has not been made clear in the rules. And someone suggested that if you do enter both, that votes will be divided in two or something.

clarfication on this would be appreciated.

2008-10-26 [Jitter]: I asked and it eventually has to be the same costume. So you can either submit just 3 images of makeup under "Makeup" or the costume and make up under "Costume" :)

2008-10-26 [Rat Hacker]: Okay I don't know it this would qualify, probably not. Since I don't have a lot of money and not really any experience with sewing. I wanted to be Two-Face from the new Batman movie. I had clothing that I either previously wore and still have that is actual articles of clothing that I had gotten over the time of living. The things were bought, but not as a set. 

As I said I highly doubt that would count, but that is why I am asking. 

2008-10-26 [Jitter]: as long as it's not a store bought costume like these http://www.costumesupercenter.com/ then you're fine :)

2008-11-07 [kamisch]: Aw man...I took vacation for too long :( My phoenix costume didn't get to be entered. Oh well. Next year...

2008-11-08 [moira hawthorne]: congratz to the two winners

2008-11-11 [bad_girl:)]: wow that bottom 1 look almost real.. scary. i like the first 1 better tho i guess thats why he won.. lol =]

2008-11-12 [Nite_Owl]: Aaaaaaaaah, lame. I completely forgot about the costume contest since I haven't been on a whole lot lately. I made an AWESOME Two-Face costume that came out really well. I should have entered--might have actually gotten something :o Sad.

2008-11-13 [Rat Hacker]: Thanks. Everyone I think did a great job on their costumes. Yeah I was supposed to be Two-Face. Hence the coin and stuff. Not I feel really egotistical and I don't like that so I'll shut up... 

2008-11-16 [Nite_Owl]: You're makeup was better than mine I think :) And everyone deserves a few bragging rights for winning one of these competitions. You did a great job mate :D

2008-11-16 [moira hawthorne]: Id still like to see your 2face Nite_owl!

2008-11-16 [Nite_Owl]: You can find mine as my house photo :D It's not very good quality, and I wasn't posing or anything in it, but it's the only one I have of my full costume.

2008-11-16 [Stratakus]: <img50*0:http://www.elftown.com/stuff/n544965318_4711482_6042.jpg> My Sis-in-Law has a friend who went out as Facebook

2008-11-16 [moira hawthorne]: ahhhhh owly you got the hair perfect aswell! awesome! yah i got alot of compliments on my cosplay on Halloween... even someone who wanted me to join his band... lol wouldnt that be a riot!

2008-11-18 [Rat Hacker]: Yes [Nite_Owl] nice job. The way you styled your hair perfectly! The makeup is fine to. 

2008-11-19 [Jitter]: LOOOOL [Stratakus]! I like Owly!

2008-11-19 [Nite_Owl]: Haha thank you :D Took quite a while to do all the makeup and such, but it came out pretty well for having to do it before school started.

2009-09-06 [Alexi Ice]: This contest to open monday.

2009-09-07 [moira hawthorne]: for the theme... Check out Masquerade Ball! is still a blank wiki.... this is the theme for this year correct?

2009-09-07 [Linderel]: Yes, it is. We'll be sorting that out as soon as possible (i.e. when Akane gets online). Timezones are a darling, aren't they?

2009-09-07 [moira hawthorne]: ok I wasnt sure if it just hadnt been gotten to as of yet... or if it hadnt been changed yet..

2009-09-07 [Alexi Ice]: Yeah...I don't know if I just wrote the link right or what. I took it down in any case.

2009-10-25 [Yuriona]: Dang... too bad the deadline is tonight. I'm working on two dragon costumes for my girls and only got the materials yesterday so I won't have them done in time. *sighs* Oh well... maybe I'll enter them next year.

2009-10-25 [moira hawthorne]: *sigh* wont have an entry for this either.. Ill just put up photos on my own wiki when we get into them for the night...

2009-10-25 [Yuriona]: *thinks the deadline should've been for the 30th* >_>

*waits for spanking* LOL!

2009-10-25 [moira hawthorne]: yah... alot of people cant get into character till the day itself... either because their costume requires alot of makeup.. or its just not finished yet

2009-10-25 [Yuriona]: Yar... and some of us are busy or just leave stuff until the last minute. It'd be sad to miss out on some potentially awesome entries because of that. I've requested the deadline be moved to the 30th in the crew forum so hopefully we'll get an answer soon. *crosses fingers*

2009-10-25 [Lothuriel]: They normally extend the deadline of the costume contest. Perhaps they will do so this year. 

2009-10-25 [Yuriona]: I hope so. *crosses fingers*

2009-10-26 [moira hawthorne]: closed... with two people entered

2009-10-26 [Artsieladie]: Page version #41: Deadline for 2008 was 2009-11-02

The deadline is usually after Halloween, because many people take their photos of their costumes and such on the day or night of Halloween, the 31st.

2009-10-26 [moira hawthorne]: si ... thats what I said... ttoooo bad this year...

2009-10-26 [Yuriona]: And my request to extend the deadline ignored. ><

2009-10-26 [Mortified Penguin]: It's closed already? That's pretty stupid... *eats ramen*...

2009-10-26 [Yuriona]: For once Mort, I agree with ya.

2009-10-26 [moira hawthorne]: how about The UNofficial Halloween Costume Gallery 2009... no Competition .. just a friend exposition of everyone's costume... Ill keep it open for as long as it takes for everyone to enter their costume! no stress just fun!

2009-10-26 [Lothuriel]: It shouldn't even be closed yet should it? It was closed before midnight on the 25th!

2009-10-26 [Flisky]: Why is this close?

2009-10-26 [Lothuriel]: I have no idea. I think I will open it up until the 31st, especially since the "theme" has just been removed. I don't think it is fair to have taken away the theme and then close it the next day. If anyone on the council opposes, yell at me. 

2009-10-26 [Flisky]: Well, I was really excited about this year's theme. I was making a mask, but it's taking too long to dry, so I can't paint it until tomorrow at least. Then there was no theme. I was all confused...*sighs*...I was just wondering what was going on.

2009-10-26 [Lothuriel]: The theme was removed because most people don't take the time and effort of their lives to sew and create a costume simply for an online contest.

2009-10-26 [Yuriona]: *glomps Loth* I lurve you!

2009-10-26 [Flisky]: You are the greatest, Loth, you know that, right?

2009-10-26 [Lothuriel]: :) I try.

2009-10-26 [Alexi Ice]: I just do what the deadline tells me...>>

2009-10-26 [Yuriona]: ...

Riiight... >_>

2009-10-26 [Mortified Penguin]: Until the 31st now? ...you couldn't have made it the 1st or 2nd...?

2009-10-26 [moira hawthorne]: DEADLINE: 2009-11-02

2009-10-26 [Mortified Penguin]: COOL.

2009-10-31 [BinaryPhoenix]: Yay! I can still enter. I'm currently busy decorating my mask. ^__^

2009-11-03 [Flisky]: I is sad. I got the flu on Halloween and didn't get any pictures of my costume I wore to work. (I got out of work, headed to the party, then left early 'cause I was all sick.)

2009-11-03 [Anvikit]: aww crud!! a day late and a dollar short.. I had some really cool face paint to post.. oh well ..

2009-11-03 [Alexi Ice]: Be sure to enter next year. Your face paint was amazing.

2009-11-03 [Anvikit]: :) thanks.. yep I'll be sure to come up with something spectacular for next year hehe

2009-11-04 [Alexi Ice]: Definatly! I can't wait to see !

2011-06-23 [Company Awesome]: When is the theme for this year going to be decided?

2011-06-24 [Mortified Penguin]: I kind of doubt there will be anything other than a generic Halloween theme, since not a lot of people enter these things anymore.

2011-09-27 [Lothuriel]: YAY!!

2011-09-27 [Cillamoon]: Generic is always fun for Halloween cuz that's still so diversified.

2011-11-01 [Yuriona]: Aww... I made an Ahsohka Tano costume for my youngest daughter this year but considering that's a character from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, I guess it doesn't fit the vintage theme. :P

2011-11-01 [Mortified Penguin]: Submit it anyway! Fight the power!

2011-11-01 [Yuriona]: LOL! It was actually hard to find the competition oddly enough. The photo poll forces the calendar down really far and it says the costume portion has the same theme as the art and poetry sections even though I'm pretty sure the costume section doesn't have a theme for obvious reasons. :/

2011-11-01 [Mortified Penguin]: If I wasn't already watching every page on Elftown, I probably never would have found this or any of the other Halloween contests.

2011-11-01 [Yuriona]: yeah... the EPRM new items hid the Halloween announcements. We only have 3 or 4 art entries atm and I think we're supposed to close it tonight. :/

2011-11-01 [Nioniel]: I made a news item reminding people about the competitions (even if it is almost too late for two of them). Fixed the note on the calendar too.

2011-11-01 [Yuriona]: I think considering how the Halloween competitions were buried by other stuff, we should extend the deadline on art and poetry to November 8 like costumes and photography.

2011-11-01 [Mortified Penguin]: As a fellow Elftown guard, I agree.

2011-11-01 [Yuriona]: Its a council thing not a guard thing and your opinion is noted even if yer a wanna be. :P

2011-11-01 [Mortified Penguin]: I'm not a guard anymore anyway. It was a one-time thing.

I think I'm owed a retired guard badge though. Nio, get on that.

2011-11-01 [Nioniel]: mhm.

Well, the two comps don't close until midnight elftown time, so we should poke the rest of the crew about it and see if it's oke before the deadline.

2011-11-01 [Flisky]: Upload tomorrow, sleep tonight.

2011-11-01 [stopyah8en]: <img500*0:stuff/aj/192159/Lil%20Wayne.jpg><img:stuff/aj/192159/Weezy%20in%20casino.jpg>

2011-11-01 [stopyah8en]: Since everyone says I look like Lil Wayne, I decided to humor them for Halloween

2011-11-01 [Mortified Penguin]: Hmm... yes, you do have his boyish good looks.

2012-10-20 [XxTsomexX]: So make-up effects wouldn't be considered, right? Did my friend's face up awesomely zombie-like.

2012-10-21 [wicked fae mage]: Makeup does count as a costume for this contest. :)

[stopyah8en], if you want to enter the contest, you should post your entry on the entry page here: Halloween Costumes 12, Page 1

2012-11-01 [Company Awesome]: Finally finished my costume. Uploading once I have pictures.

Can we get more than two submissions? D:

2012-11-01 [wicked fae mage]: "2. Each member may submit two (2) entries.

3. Maximum three (3) photos per entry. They must all be of the same costume."

2012-11-02 [Company Awesome]: I meant more than two members submitting. :p

2012-11-04 [wicked fae mage]: Ah, well, so far there are 4. :)

2013-01-05 [XxTsomexX]: Sooooo.. who won?

2013-01-05 [wicked fae mage]: This contest hasn't been put up for voting, yet.

2013-01-05 [XxTsomexX]: Its been a long time, I thought it might have been forgotten about lol
