Update: The 2016 Halloween Costume Contest is now closed. Stay tuned as we pick the top 5 semifinalist.

October is here and its time to enter Threads Halloween Costume Contest. Share your costume creations in our Halloween Costume Contest Gallery by November 1, 2016, and you could win a prize package worth more than $350 from Chadwick Heirlooms and Threads.

HOW TO ENTER

Submit clear, detailed photos and a description of your home-sewn costume to the Halloween Costume Contest Gallery by 11:59 p.m. EST, November 1, 2016. Please include any techniques, materials, patterns used, or other information about the costume that will help us understand how your submission was made. This information is critical in the preliminary judging process.

There is no limit to the number of costumes you can enter. Although each costume must be sewn by you, it does not have to be created specifically for this year’s contest.

WINNER SELECTION

On or about November 2, 2016 a panel of Threads editors will judge all submissions and select five (5) semifinalists from among the eligible entries received. Submitted entries will be judged on inspiration, technique, skill, and design. The final winner will then be chosen from the five (5) semifinalists based on the outcome of an online vote by the ThreadsMagazine.com community held from November 4, 2016 to November 11, 2016. The winner will be chosen on or around November 14. The winner will be notified by email initially, then by mail within 10 days of the selection. Odds of winning will depend upon the total number of eligible entries received. One (1) prize will be awarded to one (1) person, household, or family.
