Halloween is one of our favorite holidays of the year, and one of the best parts of Halloween is seeing people get creative and resourceful with their costumes. Anyone can buy a plastic / spandex costume at a drugstore, but not only is that boring and generic — it is the opposite of environmentally friendly. We encourage you all to get inspired and resourceful this year and go green with your Halloween costumes! This could mean cobbling together a great DIY idea from items you already have around your house, or picking up some old items at the local charity shop to create your costume (as demonstrated by Managing Editor Emily as Eskimo Pi (3.14159…) and her Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle/Sister).

    Hi Sandra-

    Okay – good point – we are pushing back the deadline.

    Our original thought was…. ‘People will be dressing up for parties over the weekend and in the days before Halloween, and we want to be able to announce the winners on Halloween, so we’ll make the deadline the morning of Halloween.” In retrospect this idea seems kind of dumb, so we are pushing the deadline back to the end of the night on Halloween in order to give people more time to submit their photos. We think this is a bit more realistic and hope it encourage more submissions.

    DEADLINE IS NOW OCTOBER 31st at midnight!

    Isn’t it a little weird to make the contest end before some people will even be dressing up? O_o
