    This Is Halloween!

    This week's contest involves pictures related to Halloween.

    Zz.

    Contest Rules:

    1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

    2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. But other than those, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

    3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack or photobucket. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

    4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

    5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

    6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

    7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

    8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

    9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread.

    Zz.

    In general Halloween is not celebrated here, but I have posted - not long ago - a picture that I think is spooky enough to qualify...

    Exactly my thoughts. I was even surprised that it was possible to take the picture :smile:

    I was there for about a hour, but I heard she ate her broom earlier in the day.

    You have less than 2 days left to submit a photo for this contest. There should be plenty coming tomorrow, I presume.

    I found this costume for like 5 bucks so I had to buy it. I figured it would be fun to make him mad, and as you can see in the picture he is a bit unhappy when the hood is up. But the little goof actually loves to wear it as long as the hood isn't up which I can hardly believe. No matter where I put it he finds it to me and brings it to me so I can put it on him, I've woken at night with it in my bed three times now.

    Halloween parade today for the school-kids. The two little blond girls are my neighbor's granddaughters, and when the younger one saw me, she ran across the road hollering my name and gave me a candy bar. Such a sweetie! There seemed to be quite a few princesses this year. They'll come trick-or-treating after my wife gets out of work so she can see their costumes. She made up a couple of gifts for them last weekend using ceramic skull bowls and black ribbons. Florists' foam blocks in the bottom allowed her to arrange "bouquets" of lollipops, pencils, etc with some other candies covering the foam. The girls were thrilled, and they're already using the skulls to store their "treasures" like rocks, antique marbles, etc.

    That's pretty crazy. Maybe if you enlarge the holes so his ears could stick out better, he wouldn't mind the hood. Too cute!
