Back for the third year in a row, I’m happy to announce my Hula Hoop Halloween Costume Contest 2016! I loved seeing the creativity in all the costumes and I have a brand new hoop design to give away.
This year I’m giving away a pair of ghoulish reflective polypro minis to the person who designs and wears the best Halloween costume involving a hula hoop or hula hoops. The hoops are made from lightweight 5/8″ polypro tubing, measure 20″ in diameter, and all it takes is a little light to get these ghoulish minis glowing.
Here’s how to enter:
2) Share this post between now and October 31st, 2016.
3) Tag me in your Hoopy Halloween photos! Comment on this post with your photo entry OR post your photo to my Facebook page OR tag me on Instagram wearing your hoopy costume OR email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Costumes will be judged by the following criteria:
Creativity of the costume idea. Think outside of the box! The more creative use of the hoop, the more points you score!
Level of homemade-ness (is that a word?.) Costumes with homemade or handcrafted elements will be scored higher than store bought costumes.
How well the hoop “prop” fits with the costume. For example, a standard costume with a hoop simply added, let’s say a hula-hooping nurse costume, will be scored lower than a costume in which the hoop is an integral part, such as a Saturn costume where the hula hoops are the rings (you can still use that idea if you want, by the way).
The hula hoop(s) may be incorporated as a structural quality in a costume and don’t neccessarily have to be visible or removable. However, if the hoop isn’t obvious, please add a note as to where the hoop is incorporated.

If you’re totally drawing a blank, I found a few ideas and I’ve added them to my Pinterest Board.
