Throughout the month of October RolePages is holding a unique contest that calls on people to don their favorite costume, get into character, and make a video. It's a fun way to celebrate Halloween, while also engaging in a brand new form of interactive storytelling.
The rules stipulate that a costume has to be worn, but doesn't get specific about how elaborate it has to be. In the example video a man wearing a jacket and a Bluetooth headset was used as one possible example of a character video entry. They also state that the video can be any length, encouraging experimental vine entries that are just a few seconds long.
The contest is running until November 3rd, 2013 at 11:59 pm EST. That means that it goes right through Halloween, so entering can be as easy as donning your outfit and snapping a short video of yourself from your phone on the holiday itself. Of course you'll have a lot more time to get votes if you enter sooner.
The grand prize for the contest is a $50 gift certificate to the RolePages Imagination store, where you can find over 10,000 costume products including wigs, masks, accessories, and complete outfits for a wide variety of costume characters. That's enough to put together a really nice costume for next Halloween, or the next contest we have.
You can find more information on the Contest Page, including all of the rules for entry. That's also where you can vote on your favorite video submissions. You can also find out all of the details by watching the official contest video.
Good luck, and may the best costume character win!
