2015 Halloween Costume Contest!

Halloween is just around the corner and we at Discount Fabric Warehouse want to encourage you to start thinking about your costumes early by announcing our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest! So get those creative juices flowing!

Here’s the rundown:

There will be three (3) categories:  Keiki, Adult, and Pets. Now, that doesn’t mean that it’s kids costumes vs. adult costumes. We like to do things slightly different here at Discount Fabric.

The Keiki Category (up to 18 years old)

  • The child must help with the costume. That doesn’t mean that the adult can’t help, but the child needs to have helped with a minimum of 75% of the costume. (And by “help” we don’t mean that they hand you the pins or pick the color of the thread while you make the rest of the costume. We mean let THEM make the costume. You can help, but this needs to be their project.)
  • The costume must be homemade. While you can have ready-made elements, the bulk of the costume must be original and made by the entrant.
  • The costume must have elements of sewing, machine embroidery, or quilting.

The Adult Category

  • The costume must be homemade. While you can have ready-made elements, the bulk of the costume (at least 75%) must be original and made by the entrant.
  • The costume must have elements of sewing, machine embroidery, or quilting.

The Pets Category

  • The costume must be homemade. While you can have ready-made elements, the bulk of the costume (at least 75%) must be original.
  • The costume must have elements of sewing, machine embroidery, or quilting.
  • This category is open to interpretation. The pet in the picture must have contributed to the making of the costume. While we don’t expect you to teach your dog or cat how to sew (although that would be interesting) we do expect that your pet be involved in the creation of the costume.

You may enter more than one costume. We encourage it if you are making costumes for different people.

How To Enter

To enter the contest, you must submit the form that can be found on our Costume Contest Entry Form page. Our submission deadline has changed and submissions will now be accepted until 11:59p.m. on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2015.
