Halloween Costume Contest Winners 2018


The results are in. Our editors have reviewed the Halloween costume contest entries and chosen the winners. They agree, this year’s entries were top-notch. They showed creativity and solid construction, with notable examples. Take the high-tech, color-changing chameleon, which required complex patternmaking and electronics skills to assemble; and a well-known World War II U.S. military commander, whose ensemble was almost completely hand-sewn and featured authentic-looking details down to the colored bars on his chest and the boots on his feet.

We hope you will keep sewing while thinking of great ideas for next year’s contest. We can’t wait to see what you come up with. While runner-ups do not receive a prize, we’d like to give a nod to those whose costumes were particularly clever and well-built.

Thank you, everyone, for submitting your Halloween costume for consideration. Check in for more contests in the future.
