Bloggeritaville Halloween Contest

Today is the last day to get in those pictures of your favorite costumed character  (characters must belong to you /family)
If you missed the details about the contest, here they are:

Last year, I hosted Tales from Bloggeritaville Halloween Costume contest.
It was such fun, that I want to do it again this year. You can start sending in your costume pictures now.
I will accept entries until November 1st at 6PM.
That should give those who want to send in Costume pics from this year time to get them in.
And there are prizes!

The Rules:
From now until 6 PM November 1st, email (profile) me your best costume. You may enter each category as many entries as you want. It can be a costume of years past or you may want to wait until Halloween of this year to submit.

Photos must be sent as Jpeg's and send small (about 8x10 in size).Photos must be in good taste. Nothing that will make me blush or embarrass your momma should she Google you and find you on the Internet. Be tasteful. Be respectful. Be courteous of your fellow bloggers.

If you do not have a blog, you can still play, just be sure to leave your email address (Which I will not publish). And a link to your blog, if you have one.

Your costume entry can be a costume of years past or you may want to wait until Halloween night to enter.

Pictures MUST be your own. You may not enter someone else's pictures or ones that might have been "borrowed" from the web or email source. You must own the rights to publish.

Please tell me what "character you are" or name your photo. BE SURE TO SEND IN BLOG LINK, if you have one (though to enter you do not have to have a blog). Please do not send in 12 people in one photo. The judging will be based on one character.

On November 2nd  all entries will be listed by category slideshow and a voting poll will be opened. I will have a poll on the sidebar to determine votes. Once the polls are opened, you may vote just once for each category. Don’t forget to ask your friends to vote for you, too!

Polls close at 6PM on November 5th.
On November 6th I will announce the winner of each category.
The winner in each category will receive a Bloggeritaville Prize. I am hoping to get some business sponsorship on that one. If anyone is interested, let me know (if anyone wants to join in and donate prizes, let me know. It's good marketing and lots of fun).
The categories are:
Best Child Costume
Best Adult Costume
Best Pet Costume
You can take a look at last years Tales from Bloggeritaville Halloween Costume Contestants (there were some goooood ones) Click here.
That’s it. Let me know if you have any questions!
Good luck!
FYI: Voting does not start until November 2nd and will end on Thursday, November 5th at 6PM CST

Forgive me, I had to Boo it! Come by my blog for a game of Halloween tag if you'd like. I didn't see a tag free sign so I hope you're game!

I would love to enter your costume contest. Bloggers are so creative, this should be a lot of fun!

Just wanted to pop over and say "Good Morning". It's been awhile and I'm going to try my hand a blogging again. I've been such a bad blogger lately.

Loved looking at your Halloweens past. Especially LUV your nun costume!!!!

Have a terrific rest of the weeks. Hopefully, you're having lots of sunshine. It's pouring here again this morning!!!

Love you Leigh!

Hey, Leigh, hope you're having a fun Fall. Cute new pic on your profile. Just stopping by to say hello, haven't seen you lately!

I am emailing you Maggie (dog) from last year as soon as I leave yoru blog because (1) I will forget if I don't and (2) I believe that was the first and last time I'll be able to get her into anything that resembles a costume. :-)

What fun! I would love to enter but for some reason my computer is not allowing me to do so. I have a dog that I would love to enter. Her picture can be taken from the side bar and then down in my past posts. On the sidebar just look for the Princess Diva. I hope this will be acceptable.

Hi Leigh.
I missed the deadline. Long day today. Anywho, it got me to get a pic posted. Can't wait to see everyone's fun.

Comment #2 on this post :)

I went back and looked at the pics from last year. Tammy as Velma cracked me up all over again.

The pictures of Valarie and her family made me a bit sad. I miss her blog and her funny comments a bunch!
