Craft Challenge #80 - DIY Halloween Costumes 2012, Sponsored by Bernina - Due Nov 1 - 8 2012


November 9, 2012 - It's Time to Vote!

Scroll up to see the voting poll.

You must be logged in to vote.  One vote per member.
If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.



It's Time to Enter!
The entry period is Nov 1 - 8, 2012.
To post your entry, please start a new topic for it on this board.
Click NEW TOPIC on this board to post your entry! Smiley
Entries must be posted by Nov 8 11:59:59 PDT 2012.
If you are a new member, and cannot post images yet, please just post a direct link to your image(s) in your post.  A friendly neighborhood Moderator will come along and update your post to embed the image(s) for you.



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 2011, 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 again 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 330 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 common theme, you can enter them together as one entry.

Rules:

  • Enter costumes crafted for Halloween 2012 only.  Projects created before this timeframe will not be removed from the entry board, but they will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).
  • Post your craft during the period of Nov 1 - Nov 8 2012. No sooner.  No later.  On Nov 1, there will be a special folder created for entries.
  • Voting will happen from Nov 9 - Nov 18 2012.
  • The winner will be officially announced on our first business Monday of the next month -- in our December newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize package information.
  • If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.

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 330 Sewing Machine (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):

The BERNINA 330s broad variety of stitches are an invitation to try out and experiment, letting you create attractive stitch combinations that youll want to use again the next time you turn on your machine. Whereas in the past youd need a notebook to jot down your stitch combinations, the BERNINA 330 offers a generous long-term memory with 30 free locations for your own stitch creations. This ensures that your favorite or most frequently used stitch combinations are immediately available again at the press of a button.

(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!

I always love this challenge, and seeing what everyone creates. Though I did sew my own costume this year, I don't expect to win by ANY means, as it isn't extravagant in the least. (Especially compared to the Calvin and Hobbes costumes I entered last year!) The entries are always incredible. Cheesy I'll be throwing mine in the mix for kicks, but I'm REALLY excited to see all the fantabulous amazingness everyone else has concocted!
