2007 Halloween Costume Contest

Well, it’s finally here! The 2007 Halloween Costume Contest! Last year’s contest was such a success that I thought I’d host it again this year. It was so much fun to see all the great costumes out there!

Here’s how it works:

  • From now until November 1st, post your photo entry (current or past) on your blog then sign the Mr. Linky below with the actual url of your post.
  • On November 2nd, all entries will be listed by category and a voting poll will be opened.
  • Once the polls are opened, you may vote just once for each category. Don’t forget to ask your friends to vote for you, too!
  • The winner in each category will receive $20 cash from PayPal or a $20 gift certificate to Amazon.com (your choice) plus a 2008 Hawaiian Pictorial Wall Calendar.
  • The categories are:
    • Best Child Costume
    • Best Adult Costume
    • Best Pet Costume
  • That’s it. Let me know if you have any questions! Good luck!

FYI: Voting does not start until November 2nd.

    Oh so fun! I can’t wait to see all the entries! Mine is of Gray as a tadpole. I am pretty sure he falls into the child category, though lately he seems more like a pet…

    OH, how fun!!! I have got the PERFECT picture….now it is actually of both my son and I together…so I guess once you see it Kailani, you’ll have to decide which category to put it in….sort of a mother/son thing – they go together….anyway, I have to go home and find the picture and post it. Oh, this is going to be so fun. You are the contest queen. I’m going to call you Queen Kailani!!! :) (you are royalty any way you look at it!!)

    Hi Kailani. I’m finally back on-line after several days of Internet problem.

    This is a great contest. Thanks for your kind comment about my son in his pirate costume. I won’t join the contest because I have reserved my vote for a dear friend. I will just wait for the official voting day.

    Take care! Happy Halloween!
