As some of you may have seen earlier, I posted a status update wanting to gauge the popularity of a possible Halloween Costume Contest for our members. I thought, it would probably be best served in a forum post than in statuses seeing as statuses get bumped down quite quickly and a lot of people wouldn't read it anyway.


So without further ado, who wants one?


Prizes will be discussed here in the thread once we come up with some ideas of what to offer. If you wish to donate ANYTHING to the competition (providing we get enough people wanting to do it), please either post here, or PM me if you wish to remain anonymous.


I'll get the ball rolling and provide a free attic shell with 10mill (in ETS form) pre-loaded on it. The person who wins it may use it for their own benefit OR feel free to resell it. Up to you.


Once we have a good list of prizes sorted out, I shall divide them up (relatively evenly) amongst the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places for people to aim for. There will be a special prize for a random entry that will be chosen by the random number generator on Random.org. The way this works is, each entrant will be assigned a number from 1 to however many total entries we get in order of submission times (Say you enter your photo first to me after entries open, you will receive the number 1 and so on and so forth). This range then gets inputted into the number generator and will spit out a random number. The person who's number comes up, will win the special prize. The staff will be asked to choose one entry of the lot as their favourite, these entries will receive a random prize too.


I will keep this thread open until next Friday, 18th October to gauge interest and pool some prizes. Providing we get a decent amount of interest (I'm sure we will), I will then start the entry period, which will run from the 18th October until the 1st November (so people who go trick or treating can submit their entries up until just after All Hallows Eve (I wanna see some pics of you out and about if this is the case).


ENTRIES ARE OPEN!!!

*entries are to be sent in to myself by 1st November, 11:59PM NST. No entries will be accepted after this time*


Bonus prizes will be handed out at random to people who feature something about Neocodex in their photo. This can be anything you think of (that is not detrimental to the site of course, NOTHING illegal either please, entrants will be DQ'ed/possibly reprimanded if they wish to test the waters with this).


There will be a poll up from Saturday, 2nd November @ 12:00am NST and you guys can vote on your favourites until Wednesday, 6th November, 12:00am NST. Prizes will be awarded after the topic/poll is closed.


K, GO!!!!

I think this is a great idea and would be willing to contribute a shell with a "morphing fun pack" on it (items for morphing/painting pets and petpets). Anyway, I am going to bed soon but will get in touch by message within the next couple of days to let you know more specifically what would be included.

Sounds great! Thanks Kordelia :)

but perhaps the general rules need to be laid out first... can we submit photo-manipulations for the costume contest? do we REALLY have to wear the costume for the submission? (i've really low self-esteem lol)

No and it doesn't have to be you but someone must be wearing it.

Soooo if my costume is based on my acting of it... i.e. it's an impersonation of it and the actual impression is what makes the costume what it is, can I upload a video of me doing this impression?

No, cause they have bigger muscles than you.

Actually, it WOULD be nice to know some guidelines (and hey maybe there can be categories: real-worn costumes versus designed/manipulated ones)? I won't be wearing an actual costume to enter, but if it were allowed, I might go so far as to dress the family feline (poor baby!)...or a plushie...or even come up with a purely photo-manipulated costume.

No he's locked in a law binding contract that states that anytime Mishelle participates in a Halloween contest on a Neopets related forum then he has to also take part in said contest.

Yeah, last year we sort of left it to the last minute (like a few days before Halloween) to organise it :/ This year we wanted to do something along the same lines but be a bit more proactive about things :) We didn't have any prizes last year which is possibly another reason that not many people participated. I hope that with some prizes on offer, we get a better turn out.

 

There will be another surprise on Halloween too. Be sure to visit the forum then or you will miss out ;)


Updated the OP with some guidelines and also a bit of a description of the prize donated by Kordelia.

I'll be submitting something most likely very goofy and entirely NOT within the guidelines of the contest for winning prizes...I just want to have a bit of goofy fun.  :yahoo:
