Costume Contest Winners!

My Halloween Costume Contest has just wrapped up, and I have to say I am incredibly impressed with all the creativity, hard work, and fun that went into them! It’s always hard to choose a winner because they’re all so great.. but alas, ’tis a contest.

But before we get to the winners, here’s my Halloween costume from this year! I’m “FrankenWiener!”

Frankenwiener Dog Costume

I guess I was sort of into the whole zombie thing this year. Which is probably because I’ve been obsessed with this great zombie video game lately.

I’ve almost got it beat!

But for Halloween night itself, I opted for the skunk costume instead – which retrospectively, was probably not the best way to get people to give me treats..

Should of stuck with FrankenWiener…

Anyway, without further ado let’s get to the Costume Contest Winners!

Most Creative Costume

The winner of this category receives a truly cool new gadget. It’s called the PetCube camera, a brand new device that lets you watch, talk and play laser games with your pet from your smartphone, no matter where you are. Just open an app on your smartphone to get live video footage of your furry friend at home to see what sort of mischief they’re up to! Plus, there’s even a built in laser you can control from your phone to play with your pet when you’re not there. You can also record video and photos to share to social media and share access to your Petcube with friends or family.
