We are so excited to announce our 2013 Homemade Costume Contest Winners. WOW! There were some incredible costume submissions to choose from this year.
We were absolutely amazed at the ingenuity that so many of our visitors have when it comes to creating a great costume. The costume ideas ranged from the scary ghouls to adorable kids costumes.
All these fabulous costume submissions kept our judges busy debating on which ones deserved to be our top three.
Our top three winners showed considerable ingenuity, creativity and resourcefulness in creating their very unique costumes.
So drum roll please.......................................!
The grand prize goes to one of the most unique ideas we have ever seen! Please join us in congratulating Kate on her Book Fairy. Her beautiful whimsical book fairy costume was actually made from real book pages.

Everyone loves the ice cream man! So did we when we saw this adorable "Good Humor Man" costume submission. Lindsay did a fabulous job of turning her adorable little guy into an icon of our childhood memories.
With this nostalgic costume, Lindsay becomes our second place winner!
