Action Figure Halloween Costume Contest
Lots of other websites have costume contests this time of year. Dress up, send your pictures in, win a prize. You know the drill. But we’re going to do things a little different. We want you to dress up your ACTION FIGURES in their Halloween costumes and send us the pictures.
In celebration of their new CINEMA OF FEAR line, Mezco has made a small run of figures in solid colors, to be given away as prizes from websites and publications.
AFI is proud to partner with Mezco in giving away a set of GOLD series 1 figures.
Here are the prizes:
So here is how the contest will work:
- Pick a figure from your collection and dress IT in a Halloween costume. It can be as small as a Mez-it on up to an 18" figure. We just want it in a costume OTHER what they would normally wear.
- Take a picture of it. Each person can submit up TWO pictures of a figure in a costume. (so pick your favorite 2!)
- Send your name, mailing address, AFI forum name (that’s right. You need to be a forum member with at least 5 posts. If you need to sign up for the forum click here. Now get posting!) and the picture(s) to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org
- ALL entries MUST be received by Sunday November 18th at midnight PST.
- Winners will be chosen and notified by November 30th. Prizes will be mailed out shortly thereafter.
Be creative! Be funny! Be different! We don’t want to just see some figure repainted. We want to see a figure, wearing a costume!
One figure will be awarded to the best costume
One figure will go to the funniest/creative picture
One figure will go to the best costume ON A MEZCO FIGURE!
And the last figure will go to the most horrific! (These are Horror Movie figures after all!)
The judges will be announced soon. But in the meantime get creative and get your entries in!
