you ever made your own Halloween costume? Did you take a
picture of it? If so, please submit it to my Homemade
Halloween costume contest for a chance to win as much as
$150! Imagine all the crafting tools or supplies you can buy!
I just started a new page on this site
Halloween costume ideas
and I need some more projects to
fill up the page. So… I decided to run this
What do I mean by being homemade
I simply mean not a purchased costume. I realize you may not
be making every single part of the costume yourself. You may
have pieced different things together to come up with an entirely
original idea. That is fine. It just cannot be a
costume out of a bag that you bought or rented.
To enter, be sure you first read the
. Then, simply upload up to four
of your homemade costume and add in a write-up about the materials you
used and how you made it. Be sure you made the costume
yourself and that the photo is yours.
Your costume will appear on the Homemade
Halloween costumes page
. After you submission is
will also place the photo on the Crafts
For All Seasons Facebook
. Tell your friends to come to our page and
costume, because there is also a prize for your costume having the most
FIRST PRIZE - Judged by Crafts For All
SECOND PRIZE- Judged by Crafts For All
- Awarded to the costume with the most
likes on the Crafts For All Seasons Facebook page
(Yes, you can
win both the Facebook prize AND the first or second
prize, for as much as $150!)
1. At least one photo (maximum of four) per contest entry is required.
Photos must be your own. By submitting your entry you are
agreeing for the photo to also be placed not only on the Crafts For All
Seasons website, but also the Crafts
For All Seasons Facebook page
. Please do not submit
your costume photos to the Facebook page, as I will do that for you
after your entry has been accepted.
2. List of materials used and a step-by-step tutorial on how the
costume was made is required. Your write-up must be original and must
NOT appear on other websites or blogs. You can blog about your project
but please reword your tutorial as Google penalizes sites with the same
wordings. Absolutely no duplicate content please.
3. Your entry must be at least 150 words long.
4. Enter as many times as you like. More entries, more chances of
5. Spread the word by placing our contest button on your blog's sidebar
and linking it to this contest page.
6. Contest will run from September
5, 2012 to November 5, 2012
. Lots of
time for you to make your costume and join in!
Please take the time to read the full Official
Crafts-For-All-Seasons.com has the right to modify and enhance your
submission after the contest ends. This is because each new
entry becomes its own webpage on this site. Titles and
have to be modified slightly to enhance for keyword searches for the
page, so that other visitors will be able to find the page.
CRITERIA FOR JUDGING
Comprehensiveness of Tutorial.
The goal of your submission
become its own complete webpage. Detailed step-by-step instructions
would certainly help a lot, and preference will be given to longer
written submissions, and those entries which have more than one
photo. If you have step by step photos of how the costume was
made, that is even better. Each entry must be at least 150
If it’s a new and original
extra points from me!

inspired is a wonderful photo. Share a good photo of your costume for

Please share a photo of your costume and explain how you made it. Just fill out the rest of this form and follow the help boxes if you need it.
Unfortunately I am not able to accept submissions that also appear on other websites. This is because duplicate content is frowned upon by the search engines. If you have shared your costume on other websites, please re-word your tutorial here.
