Tips and Tricks for Costume Contests
1. Have a Unique Costume
You won’t win by picking a costume that everyone has. Pick a unique costume that reflects creativity and personality.
2. Enter a Quality Photo
Half the battle is the costume, and the other half is the photo. Make sure when you are entering your photo, that it really speaks to the judges. Make sure the photo is clear. Don’t enter photos with any glare. Be creative with the background and setting.
3. Enter Early
Enter early so you do not miss out on being in the competition. Dress up more than once to get use out of your costume.
The Racine County Eye is also hosting a Pumpkin Carving Contest. For more details about the pumpkin carving contest, click here. This event will take place virtually. Carve your pumpkin and send us a photo.
