All Catsters are invited to participate in a Halloween Costume contest!
The Contest will be tons of fun and end with a fun Halloween party where we will take a hay ride over to the judging ring.
Our special Valet parking will park your car and escort you to the Hay Ride that will wind through a spooky fun corn maze on its way to the Judging Ring.
Next to the Judging ring we will serve refreshments including Apple Cider, Caramel Apples, Popcorn Balls, Spooky Eye Ball and worm casserole (made with pealed grapes and spaghetti), Pumpkin and Apple pies and a potluck table where every cat can bring their favorite dish to share.
There will be a kitten tent filled with entertainment so you can drop off your kittens and enjoy the night. The kitten tent will have spooky juicy cups filled with cider for each kitten to enjoy and bring home.

To enter your pictures:
1) post them to your profile.
2) add the tag: Halloween_Contest_2010
3) add in the description: Which category the picture is for.
4) Make a post in this thread by OCT 29 at 4PM Central Standard Time For each cat who is entering when you are ready.You can add links to your pictures if you wish, but as not all catsters are comfortable with that using the photo book is the easiest way.
Get festive in a Halloween costume or photo-shop yourself into one. Be creative!
Entry must include if picture was photo-shopped or not.
You can either enter the same picture for all categories, Or you can enter a different picture for each, however only one picture per pet is allowed for each category.
By Default if you do not specify a category your picture will be entered into all categories.
You can choose to have a different costume for each category or use the same costume.
All of your cat family can enter, just make sure each one has their pictures on their own profile, and each fur entering needs to make their own post to this thread.
I could enter picture1 into categories 1,3,5 and picture2 into categories 2,3,6 and picture3 into category 7- as long as the category name is with each picture.
Picture1 I could have on a zombie costume, picture2 I could have on a which costume, picture3 I could have on a ghost costume OR I could have the same costume for picture1,picture2, and picture3.
However I can Not enter picture1 and picture2 into categories 1,3,5 and have picture3 entered in categories 2,4,6,7 because then I would have two entries in the same categories.
If Bumpurr and Cowboy were both entering, they would each have to make their own post to this thread indicating they are entering the contest. Entries must be submitted by OCT 29 at 4PM Central Standard Time.
I will announce the winners of each category in this thread and include links to the winning pictures.
Judging Announcements will start at 8PM CST OCT 29.
Prizes for each cat-a-gorie are pre-determined and will be sent off to the engravers and on the winners shortly after the judging announcements are made.
I simply cannot wait to see all the fun entries we receive and see all of you at the Costume Party. You can come to the party wearing your costume if you would like!
I forgot to mention we will have Games set up as well so while you are waiting for the judging announcements Starting at 4PM CST you can play all sorts of games in the tent.
