Halloween Costume Contest!

by CAPSLOCK

Since Brent is on his way back from tour, he’s asked me to post the details of the Halloween Costume Contest. That way you all have time to get your costumes together and maybe even use them before the contest!

The pictures you email (due by Friday, November 2nd at 5pm Pacific Standard Time!) will be posted to the website for a vote by the fans, beginning Monday, November 5th and ending Monday, November 12th.

Prizes:
First Place: A signed hardcover first-edition of The Blinding Knife personalized to you, and five personalized bookplates to you or friends of your choice.

Second Place: A signed copy of mass market paperback The Black Prism and five personalized bookplates to your or friends of your choice.

Third Place: Five personalized bookplates to you or friends of your choice.

Rules:
1. Entry due by Friday, November 2, 2012 at 5pm Pacific Standard Time.

2.Entry must include a picture of you in costume, along with a one-to-two sentence description.

3.The costume must be of a character in The Lightbringer Trilogy.

4. The subject line of the email (and this is IMPORTANT) must read: Lightbringer Costume Contest.

5. Address the email to: CAPSLOCK@brentweeks.com. (Don’t worry, Brent will be checking out all the costumes, but I’ll be putting together all the photos for the contest!)

6. The costume must be family-friendly. (Hey, we’d like to display the best entries on the website, and we can’t do that if it’s not appropriate for some of the younger fans!)

Winners will be announced on Tuesday, November 13, 2012.

If we haven’t addressed all your questions, please ask them in the comments section below–we’ll answer as soon as intercontinental flights and time zone changes allow!

    50 thousand Blackguards pending…… haha no I joke I joke (in seriousness).

    Three questions

    1. Does it matter what country you’re from?
    2. And can you throw in some Photoshop on the pictures? (Oh the drafting possibilities)
    3. Is it limited to a single entry per person?

      1. Doesn’t matter what country you’re from.
      2. As long as the costume is materially yours, some Photoshopped magic or cleaning up glare or something is fine. (I don’t want people presenting characters from movies or video games putting a gloss of Photoshop on it and saying it’s actually their costume.)
      3. Let’s say 2 entries per person, but you can only win once. (Fair?)

      1. Kevin says:

        Thanks for the reply. I’d say that’s perfectly fair.

  4. Nicole says:

    If I wanted to make a costume of a Color Wight would that be OK?

  5. Ali says:

    When you say family friendly, does not mean the costume should not be scary? Specifically, would a lot of blood be considered not family friendly?

    1. brent says:

      Blood is fine. 🙂

    Just finished my entry! Adding some yellow luxine and will send it with love from Spain 🙂
