Best Adult Costume


Adults are never too old to dress up for Halloween! And now that your childhood days are over, here’s your chance to still get some recognition for all that effort you put into your amazing DIY costume. The winning selections for this category are awarded to the top costume worn by those 18-years-old or older. To be considered the “Best Adult Costume,” you must add an extra level of detail to both your costume and description to stand out from the crowd. All costumes submissions must be family-friendly.

Best Kids Costume


The “Best Kids Costume” is now for children, tweens, and teens from 4-years-old to 17-years-old in age. Get the help of your parent or guardian to submit a photo of you in your brilliant Halloween costume along with a summary describing your Halloween masterpiece.


Best Baby Costume


This is the one costume category where “cute” often beats out “scary.’ Entries submitted of your baby or toddler, should be newborns through 3-years-old, dressed up in their own Halloween costume. Crawl away from the competition with adorable photos and a detailed description of your baby’s Halloween costume.


Best Group Costume


Gather your friends, family, or completely random strangers together to create the perfect group Halloween costume. Assemble your group of three or more people made up of all ages in an attempt to pull off this year’s top group Halloween costume. Your squad’s coordinating look could follow a theme, match a franchise, or simply complement one another. Whatever DIY costume strategy your group chooses to agree on, your entry should include a story behind the costumes, how you know each other, and of course some incredible pictures that showcase your group’s amazing outfits.

Best Pet Costume


The pet costume category is sure to steal some of the spotlight of this year’s Halloween Costume Contest as this category is sure to have some of the cutest contest entries. Humans shouldn’t have all the fun this Halloween! So, get ready to dress up your dogs, cats, and other creatures you have as pets in adorable DIY Halloween costumes. Any pet can be entered and the more creative the costume, the better your chances of winning! Get your pets in on the Halloween fun by channeling your creativity as a pet owner and submitting an entry with some great pictures and a thoughtful description. Bonus points for telling us about your pet!
