Chictopia is kicking off Halloween 2011 with its first ever Chictopia I DIE FOR DIY costume contest! We’re not talking about a costume that you just bought at a store-- we want to see you get creative and transform into a spooky, kooky, cutesy or badass Halloween maven!
To enter, simply upload an outfit photo of yourself wearing your raddest costume and tag the "Style" as "I Die for DIY". In the entry, write about how your costume came about, like where it's from and why you chose it. If it’s a DIY costume, give us details on how you made it! A handfull of the most voted, favorited, commented and retweeted entries will be contenders as the winning entries. The three winners will then be chosen by our guest judges. So in order to make your entry stand out, make sure you tell other Chictopians to vote, favorite, comment, and retweet your outfit photo!The Chictopia I Die for DIY Contest is all about creativity-- ALL TYPES of Halloween costumes may be entered, whether store bought or not. However, if your costume is DIY and you pair it with a creative writeup, then you have a greater chance at winning!
