DFW 2020 Halloween Costume Contest

2020 Halloween Costume Contest

Welcome to the Discount Fabric Warehouse Halloween Costume Contest Submission Page!

Submission Guidelines

  • Please make sure that your photo is clear, taken in a well-lit area, and is appropriate for general viewing. (No inappropriate body language or hand gestures, please, as well as inappropriate signage or wording on costumes or in the general area.) Blurry, pixelated, or badly lit photos that do not show off the costume being entered may not get the attention the costume deserves and Discount Fabric Warehouse reserves the right not to include these photos in the contest.
  • There is a limit of 2MB for the photo. If your photo is larger than 2MB, your form will not submit and you will receive an error message. (If you have no other choice but to submit a photo that is larger than 2MB, please e-mail us at fabricdfw@gotfabric.com.)
  • Please provide a brief description of your costume (How it was made, what patterns were used (if any), what materials were used, etc.) This year we’re also accepting videos describing your costume instead of a written description. If you’d like to submit a video, please e-mail it to fabricdfw@gotfabric.com, making sure to include your name. In the Description box of your entry form, you can mention that a video has been submitted. All video descriptions will have 5 bonus votes added on to their total at the end of the voting period!)
  • Each costume entry must be submitted in a separate form along with separate photos. Please do not make a collage of different costumes. If multiple costumes are featured in a photo, and we receive multiple forms, we will use the same photo for each entry. We urge you to submit separate photos for each form to show off each costume individually. (You are, however, allowed to compile a collage of photos of the same costume and submit it for entry.)
  • Deadline for entry is Sunday, November 01, 2020 at 11:59PM HST.

Contest Rules

  • All costumes must be at least 75% homemade. The purpose of this contest is to show off your sewing, embroidery, and quilting skills, not to see who can buy the best costume. We reserve the right to ask for clarification if there is any question on construction of the costume.
  • Costume must have been made by the person submitting the entry. Please do not purchase a costume from another creator and enter it as your own. If there is any question regarding who made the costume, your entry will not be accepted.
  • The majority of the materials must have been purchased at one of our Discount Fabric Warehouse locations. Please include what materials were purchased at DFW and how they were used in the description of your costume.
  • You must include a description of your costume – including construction and materials. (Any submissions without a detailed description included will not be accepted.)
  • Costume must have been made in 2020. Costumes created for other events in 2020 may be entered provided that they meet all other rules and guidelines.
  • Terms and Conditions for the 2020 Costume Contest must be read, understood, and accepted.

If you have any questions regarding the rules and guidelines, please e-mail us at fabricdfw@gotfabric.com.

Please note that your full last name and e-mail address will not be listed in the caption for your entry, although they are required. For children, please feel free to note their age next to their first name. We will only use your e-mail address to contact you regarding your entry.
