Stand apart from everyone else and give yourself a little pat-on-the back by taking a little credit for all your hard-work, originality, ingenuity and creativity.

You should share your story, pictures and/or video for a chance to win an awesome prize!

Grand Prize: $250† Amazon Gift Card

Total Prizes: $500‡ in Amazon Gift Cards (various amounts with a minimum prize of $50)

Both words and pictures (or video) combine to tell a great story - so be sure to include your photos with your costume submission. It's true what they say, a picture is worth a thousand words!

We'll be judging all 2014 costume contest entries on a combination of your story and your pictures.

Tip: You won't be able to upload video with your submission, so if you created a costume or makeup video, be sure to include a link where we can find it! Or contact us and provide the details.

Please note:
To be considered for the $250 grand prize, only those entries with 200 words or more along with at least two quality photos will be considered.

You may enter as many times as you like, as long as each entry is a unique costume.
