Tricks, Treats and Treasures: Halloween Contest 2011

Jaimes Jaimes
Hey guys! Welcome to our 2nd Annual Halloween Contest!

Due to the fun we had last year, we decided to bring back our contest. And since we have a few Halloween junkies on staff, we also decided to expand our categories, as well as our prizes, all sponsored by Digital Playground.

There are 6 categories:

Toy Costumes: This was a huge hit last year, so we’re bringing it back. Create a costume for your favorite toy. Get creative with your concepts and construction paper, or pipe cleaners, or glow sticks, or any other fun material you can think of. No photo enhancement/photo-shop ping allowed.

Human Costumes/Makeup Design: Scary, funny, sexy, other-worldly, etc. Let your imaginations run wild. Makeup entries do not need to be attached to a whole costume. No photo enhancement/photo-shop ping allowed.

Stories: Lets see what kind of sexy, spooky stories you guys can cook up. They may or may not be erotica, but all need to have a Halloween theme.

Videos: Do you want to make the next Evil Dead, or maybe Aliens meets Dracula? Do it! Videos can be any length, just bear in mind the attention span of your audience. We’re all hopped up on Halloween candy, so it may be short.

Pumpkin Carving: Whip out the knives and go to town. Build pumpkin totem poles, pumpkin zombies, blood-oozing pumpkins, or even… happy pumpkins, if you want to be dull about it… We’re kidding, of course. Have fun!

Other: This is exactly what it sounds like. If you have something Halloween themed that doesn’t exactly fit in any of the above categories, submit it here. Art and food are good examples.

You may submit up to two entries per category until 11:59 pm Oct 23rd. We will be posting submissions on the 24th, and voting until the 30th. We’ll announce our winners on Halloween!

And… PRIZES
The part I know everyone is excited to find out about. We got together with Digital Playground to sponsor our contest!

Prizes:
• The top 3 winners in each category will create their own Pirates Prize Package-
o 1st Place – Choice of 1 item from each of these categories: Rabbits, Vibes, Rings and Bullets, and DVD’s.
o 2nd Place: Choice of one item from each of these categories: Vibes, Rings and Bullets, and DVD’s.
o 3rd Place: Choice of one item from each of these categories: Rings and Bullets and DVD’s.

Rules and Fine Print:
1. You must have an Eden Account to participate.
2. All entries must be submitted to sam@edenfantasys.com by 11:59pm EST – Sunday, October 23rd.
3. All submissions will be posted to the forum with the contributor’s identity hidden. Please do not reveal yourselves during the voting process. Let’s keep this fair, everybody!
4. It would be really awesome if you guys could put the EdenFantasys logo on a card and place it in the photos or videos somewhere. This isn’t mandatory, but who doesn’t love fun product placement?
5. Voting will take place from Oct 24th through Oct 30th. Winners will be announced on the forum on Halloween.

We are all really excited to see the entries!

How exciting! I've got one toy costume all cooked up, and I'm really glad I'll be allowed to think of another.

And, very awesome prizes!

Wait what goes with the videos? Anything??? I just discovered how to use my computer to format 'movies' and I'm super eager to use it.
Also I may stop and poke around arts and crafts cause even though It's not my area of expertise I like the idea of dressing up one of my toys.

As long as you were the one who made the costume or is wearing it, that's totally fine!

This seems awesome!
I wish I was creative enough. But I may give it a try anyhow.

I'm really hoping that the 'other' category gets some food entries! I LOVE Halloween themed food, and it's a fun outlet for lots of people who don't consider themselves "creative."

How fun!

I was trying to get a good picture of my Halloween costume earlier. In the interest of anonymity, can we black out faces or does that violate the no photoshopping rule? I guess I could always just take them from the neck down, haha

Feel free to black out your face! We understand privacy is important. Really the photoshop thing was in regards to people with wicked graphics skills, so that if they do want to submit what I would call photoshop art that is costume or makeup themed, it would be best submitted in 'other', that way someone who made a costume or makeup design by hand wouldn't perform poorly next to someone who made it on a computer.

Does that makes sense? It's intended to be read in the nicest way possible. I'm a photoshop person myself, I just don't have the same wicked skills I am referring to.

Can you post an image of EF's logo so it can be included? All the ones I can currently find on the site are breast cancer themed.
