Yerfdog Behold, Hamumians Enrobed! (Costume Contest)

Costume Contest!
Hello. It is October, so it's time to put on a costume!

Dress up as a Hamumu character, take a picture, and email it to me (jamul@hamumu.com) anytime before October 24th!

On that day, I will post all the pictures, and set up a secret poll on to vote for your favorite costume, with one week time limit.

The most popular costume as judged by the forum voters will win 500 Yerfbucks. Second and third place will each win 50 Yerfbucks.

Tip: Don't just do Bouapha or Dr. Lunatic! There are literally hundreds of other characters and monsters to choose from. Just think how nice a Roly Poly costume would look! Do something creative and silly and people will really vote for it.

---------------- Fine print ------------------------

- No photoshopping at ALL. Just a straightforward picture of you in a costume. Feel free to make the pose and scene as exciting as possible, I'm sure it will affect peoples' votes. But do it with real objects, not on your computer!

- This is a costume contest - it must be a picture of you in a costume. You can add props as you like, and set the scene, but the focus has to be on a human being that I hopefully believe is you, dressed up in a costume.

- Only a single photo is allowed. Don't do a split screen set of pictures from different angles, an animated video, or anything else crazy. How well you plan your picture is part of the challenge!

- The image you send can be any size (but please, try not to destroy the internet with 3TB images!), but note that it will be edited down and cropped at my discretion to make a reasonable image for showing on the forum. It might be better to make those cuts yourself, so it comes out the best. I recommend 600 pixels wide, for a good large image that fits well on the forum.

- One entry per person. Choose wisely!

- To be precise, your entry has to be in before Midnight October 24th PST (that's the first second of October 24th, not the last!) to be valid. To be realistic, I'll actually put up any entry I get before whatever time on the 24th I get around to posting the entries. But please, for your own sake, don't push it!

- Just for fun, check out the entries from the last three years: Silliness, More Silliness, Most Silliness

oh yes I love the costume contest. Who knows, maybe this time my entry won't be a last-minute makeshift mess! (not that there's anything wrong with that)

This contest is always fun. I most likely won't be entering, but it's fun to see what people come up with!

I might enter again this year, maybe.
If I do it will probably be a last minute thing just like last year, only better. Maybe.

We'll just have to wait and see. I'm excited to see what everyone else comes up with.

I was so excited when I found out this wasn't due until Monday! The helpful chart had me concerned...

I still haven't actually 'made' my costume really, but the plan is there, and the tools are there, and the camera is not there but it will be....
Still missing one vital prop actually... But that will be there in time too...

I'm relying on too many people to get me things on this one...

And perhaps using way too many ellipses... Yep.

It's due today! I will be closing things out when I wake up tomorrow, so today is the best way to describe that. Turn it in today, because unless you are a major early-bird, you will lose out tomorrow (or in an appropriate time zone).

Well, my concern was that the polls were going up today, which would have been problematic. But since they're going up tomorrow, I should be good.
