There’s a crispness in the air, and September has begun…
Crafty minds everywhere begin to envision fantastical costumes and spooky nights, which means there’s no better time to have a costume contest!
It’s no secret that we love Halloween, but judging by all the cool, creepy and crafty costumes that often appear in our flickr pool, you do too! That’s why we thought it would be a great idea to celebrate your costume skills with a very special contest.
Now through Nov. 1, enter a costume you’ve made featuring an Urban Threads design, and you’ll be automatically entered to win a very special prize…
A totally custom design created by us, for whatever theme or wish you’ve always desired!
That’s right… have you been asking for costumed ferrets or steampunk bees for months, but we haven’t delivered yet? Got an idea you always wanted to try, but seemed too crazy to request? Now is YOUR chance.
If you win the contest, we’ll personally work with you and your ideas to made that one kick-butt design you’ve always wanted (and hopefully that everyone’s really wanted) that we just haven’t gotten around to yet. We’ll make sure it fits all hoop sizes and it’s for all formats, so no matter what, it will suit your stitching needs. We’ll even dedicate it to you in the design description so you and your idea will live on the site forever!
Just a quick few caveats about the prize design:
-While it is a custom design for you, this is hopefully something everyone else has been dying to see too. So we’re not designing something with a personal name, your kid’s little league mascot, or a company logo. The design will be available on the site for everyone after it’s yours, so try and think of something worth sharing!
-We will not design anything copyrighted (no, we’re not drawing you a zombie Disney princess, as cool as that might be) offensive, or otherwise inappropriate for our audience. Let’s keep it safe viewing for the kiddios.
So, now that you know the prize, what and how can you enter?
First, you’ll need a picture of a costume that features at least one Urban Threads design. It doesn’t matter if it’s something brand new stitched for this spooky season, or if it’s something you’ve stitched up before. It doesn’t even matter if it’s been featured already. As long as it’s a cool costume featuring some Urban Threads sweetness, it’s eligible to be entered!
Once you have your costume picture ready, upload it to the Urban Threads flickr pool and tag it utcostumecontest or e-mail it in to firstname.lastname@example.org. (pssst…already have a costume added to the flickr pool? All you need to do is tag it!) You can enter more than one costume to increase your chances!
Important! While it’s fine for you to upload/e-mail lots of pictures of your costume to share, please just pick ONE image to tag as your entry. As we said before, you can enter multiple costumes, but you should only tag each costume once.
Get your pictures in by Nov 1st @ 11:59pm Central time to be entered. (We understand, sometimes you’re hot gluing those last pieces on right before you head out trick-or-treating, so you have till the day after to get your images in.) We’ll choose a winner at random, and get to work on that custom design!
Ready to get stitching? We totally are. Halloween is right around the corner…
What awesomeness will you stitch up this year?
