Enter our Halloween contest: Create a costume out of Ledger-Enquirer newspapers

ssorich@ledger-enquirer.comOctober 26, 2012 

Google "how to make clothes out of newspaper" and you'll find all sorts of treasures, including instructions for sewing a newspaper dress.

Why do I know this? A few days ago, I participated in a Ledger-Enquirer brainstorming session that resulted in a challenge for our readers: include copies of our newspaper in your Halloween costume.

What's in it for you? We're giving a $100 Visa gift card to the top costume in each of our three categories: adults, youths (12 and younger) and pets.

You're not required to make a costume entirely out of newspapers. If you prefer, simply add

a newspaper-made accessory to an existing costume.

But feel free to go overboard. In fact, your chances of winning increase with every newspaper you use. We'll judge on creativity and use of the Ledger-Enquirer.

It's not too tough -- just ask our very own Tim Chitwood, who recently flaunted a scary cape made of newspapers.

To enter, email a photo of your costume to ssorich@ledger-enquirer.com by 3 p.m. Monday, Oct. 29. You must include your name, address and phone number in the email. I'll send you a confirmation email once I've received your submission.

Once we've received the entries, our judges will choose the top costumes in each category. In addition to giving away the Visa gift cards, we'll feature some of the best photos on our website.

Ledger-Enquirer is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
