How does the costume contest work?

  • There will be a $1,000 Sexiest Costume contest, and a separate $1,000 Most Creative Costume contest.
  • Upon admittance, you are officially entered into both contests.
  • Summoning officials will be at each stage, and roaming the event, handing out 100 bracelets for each category during the night.

  • If you receive a bracelet, you are a semifinalist, and will be instructed on how to take your picture for final judgement.

  • We have instructed our officials to have all bracelets handed out by 11:30pm, so we can start the judging process promptly at midnight. Get there early before all the bracelets are gone!

  • At midnight, our panel of judges will narrow down the 100 semi-finalists in each category to 10 finalists in each category.

  • The 10 finalists in each category will be notified by text message and/or Email they are a finalists, and directed to the Zombie Prom stage in the 11th Street Garage for audience vote to take place promptly at 1am. The loudest audience applause will determine the winner!

*Note, a person can be a semi-finalist in 2 categories, but can only be a finalist in 1 category.
