First of all, I just want to thank everyone who participated in the costume contest and for your patience in my taking so long to announce the winners. An unfortunate event in my family prevented me working on the contest for some time and I truly appreciate everyone’s patience. With that being said, I had some amazing entries this year and I’m excited to announce the winners! This year I’m giving away a pair of reflective polypro minis to the hoopy-est Halloween costume and to recap what I was looking for, there were three main criteria:
- How well the hoop fit in with the rest of your costume. Hoops could have been used as a structural quality in your costume or as standard hula hoop, just as long as your costume made sense having that hula hoop there.
- Handcrafted elements. Entries that were handcrafted or had homemade elements scored higher than those that were store-bought.
- Thinking outside the box with your costume got you more points than common costume themes.
Thank you to everyone who participated!
And finally, in 3rd place, with a genius use of her hoop is Amanda (@amlynn_hoops) as Samara from The Ring:
In second place is Kelsey (@wildco.yqr) as a circus lion in her ring of fire! I love the creativity and the use of the hoop:
And in first place, with a brilliant use of a hula hoop as well as impeccable craftsmanship in the costume as a whole is Janie (@janieslash) as a venomous vixen with a handmade hoop web!
Thanks again to everyone who participated and now it’s time to start planning next year’s Halloween Costume!
