[Closed] 2015 Threads Halloween Costume Contest Sponsored by OttLite


The crunching sound of fallen leaves underfoot and chilly temperatures can only mean one thing: its time to enter Threads Halloween Costume Contest!

Share your creative, festive, or just plain spooky costume in our Halloween Costume Contest Gallery, and you could win a prize package worth more than $300 from OttLite and Threads.


Share clear, detailed photos and a description of your home-sewn costume to the Halloween Costume Contest Gallery by 11:59 p.m. EST, November 3, 2015. 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.


The winner will be selected in a two-step process.

Submissions will be reviewed and judged by Threads editors who will select five (5) semifinalists. The semifinalists will be judged on creativity and construction. Online members will then vote for their favorite costume in an online poll. The winner will be contacted via email and announced the week of November 16, 2015.
