Time to Vote!
Scroll up to see the voting poll.
Rules, tips & tricks for voting:

  • You must be logged in to vote.
  • Only one vote per person.
  • Due to the number of entries, it might be easiest for you to browse the Entry Board http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=474.0, select your favorite entry, and then return here to vote. Smiley  For your convenience, we've created the poll in alphabetical order, so you can easily locate your favorite entry.
  • Enjoy!! Smiley



10/31/2011 - Time to enter!

Post your entry project as a NEW TOPIC on the entry board here:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=474.0


October is here and we're ready to see all of the crafty costumes!  Time to showcase all of those amazingly creative DIY Halloween costumes of this season.  We had spooktacular entries in 2010, 2009, 2008 and 2006, and now it's your turn to contribute an amazing costume creation!

We're very excited to announce that BERNINA is sponsoring our Costume Contest this year!  Family owned and operated, BERNINA values innovation, unparalleled Swiss precision and quality, and inspiring creativity within the sewing community.  The first place winner will get an amazing prize package, including the BERNINA 350PE sewing machine!

Here are a few specifics for this challenge:
  • The costume you enter must have some handmade components.
  • It must be a costume you are making for this year, and not photos of a costume from past years.
  • If you are making a costume for someone else, and not for yourself to wear, it's okay enter it, but just remember that you can only have one entry in this contest.
  • If you are making a set of costumes for multiple people that all go together via a theme, you can enter them together as one entry.

Rules:

  • Enter costumes crafted for Halloween 2011 only.  Projects created before this timeframe will not be removed from the entry board, but they will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Post your craft during the period of Oct 31 - Nov 8 2011. No sooner.  No later.  On Oct 31, there will be a special folder created for entries.
  • Voting will happen from Nov 9 - Nov 16 2010.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project.

Prizes:

At the end, I'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner will get...

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) BERNINA 350PE sewing machine (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):

Whether stitching clothing or home dcor items, quilting or simply mending,
the BERNINA 350PE gives you the freedom to explore a wealth of creative techniques.

(4) and this Craftster prize (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):
Any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

Looking for Mccalls 6337 sewing pattern, if you have a copy you'd be willing to share/give/sell please let me know.  The bag costs $60 and I think perhaps I could make it cheaper/
