Halloween Costume Contest Rules

•     The Park Slope Parents Halloween Costume Contest is open to anyone, no matter what age you are or where you live.

•     YOUR COSTUME MUST BE HOME MADE or cobbled together. We are looking for YOUR work and creativity. Costumes purchased or rented or any costumes made for you by a professional designer or seamstress do not qualify. There are exceptions to the "purchased or rented" policy; for instance, if only one or two minor components of the costume were purchased. Exceptions in this case will be at the discretion of the judging team. 

•     Costumes must be self-contained. Connections to electrical sockets will not be available.

•     It’s a family costume contest. Keep it fun and G- Rated.

•     Judges for the Halloween Costume Contest are not eligible for the Costume Contest.



•  We'll call people up to the "stage" by costume categories.  You will need to remain throughout the Costume Contest to be eligible for an award.

•     Halloween Costume Contest awards will be announced after all costumes have been exhibited, each category has been stated and entrants for that category return to the stage.


•     The judges shall have the sole authority and discretion to select the winners.

•     Minors (those under 13 years of age) must come with a legal guardian to participate.

•     By registering, all Halloween Costume Contest participants agree to let Park Slope Parents use their images for promotional purposes, both photographs and video.

•     Each entrant shall indemnify, defend, and hold Park Slope Parents harmless from any third party claims arising from or related to that entrant's participation in the contest. In no event shall Park Slope Parents be liable to an entrant for acts or omissions arising out of or related to the contest or that entrant's participation in the contest.
