Costume Contest Categories
Contestants in each category will be judged on the uniqueness of their concept, quality of costume construction, and makeup:
- Best Costume
That one costume of the night that just hits all the right notes, and the hardest one to judge!
- Scariest Costume
Well, it’s the Midwest HAUNTERS Convention after all! We want to see your SCARIEST!
- Most Original Costume
It may not be the best, and it may not be the scariest, but we want to give props for thinking outside the box!
The judges will be mingling and provide those worthy contestants (that arrive no later than 9:30 pm) with an invitation/ticket to participate in the contest.
At 10:30 pm, the contestants will be called to the right side of the stage (as you are facing it) to line up, and then winners will be selected and announced.
Each category’s winner will receive a Basic Package Registration for MHC 2022 and a pass to the MHC Costume Party 2022; if the winners are a couple or group in any of the categories, they will receive two of the Basic Registration Packages and two Costume Party tickets for 2022.
There is no pre-registration, just mingle and walk around so that the judges have an opportunity to see your costume.
