Photoshop Halloween Costume?

October 11, 2007 at 6:42 pm (Uncategorized)

.flickr-photo { }
.flickr-frame { float: left; text-align: center; margin-right: 15px; margin-bottom: 15px; }
.flickr-caption { font-size: 0.8em; margin-top: 0px; }

I saw this and thought it was cool, but then realized it was edited with a program like Photoshop. I new a girl in High school that would do bazaar stuff like that to her eye lids. A costume that would really have me looking twice.

Halloween Celebrations

October 10, 2007 at 9:39 pm (Halloween Customs, Halloween History, Uncategorized) (, , )

Halloween is a holiday that is celebrated throughout the world in many different ways. In the post Halloween Celebrations Halloween PumpkinThroughout the World, Darlene McFarlane tells gives us some of the history behind one of the worlds oldest holidays. Locations that she focuses on include Austria, Spain, Japan, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Russia, Ireland, Scotland, North America, Russia, and India. In addition to telling the readers about Halloween customs in a variety of locations, she also has some very nice photos within the post.

My favorite picture is the Jack-o-lantern pic in the Ireland Halloween section where we find out that the name Jack-O-Lantern comes from a man named “Stingy Jack”, which is also a story that is shared in Scotland. But instead of a pumpkin, “Stingy Jack’s” Lantern was a carved out turnip with a piece of coal. Give the Halloween Celebrations post a read, it truly is a fascinating Halloween post.

Anastasia from Enter Now, a sweepstakes site did a post about the Halloween contest. We have also had a lot of entries from people who signed for the Newsletter. The only video thus far was the one done by buddy Jim.

Halloween Contest for Mutts

Today I found a cool Halloween Costume contest that is literally for the dogs. The site Luvmutt.com is having a Halloween contest as well. For this contest, all you need to do is send them a pic of your dog, I mean mutt(No purebreeds aloud) in a Halloween contest. The contest is running now until the end of the month. Prizes have yet to be disclosed. But being it is a Halloween Costume contest for Mutts, I just had to inform any readers who may have a Mutt and want to enter them into either contest. Sure, I will accept Halloween posts about pet costumes as well.

Yesterdays Halloween Contest Activities

In addition to chatting with Emperor Anton on Twitter in the morning, I started a Halloween Links page on Jottit.com after seeing a link for it on one of the tweets in my Twitter stream. Another way I can show some link love to any other Halloween sites that get involved in the Dreamascream.com Halloween Costume Giveaway.

I also created a Halloween Contest Group on Viddler, where the videos for the Halloween contest are being hosted. At the time of the creation of this post, the only Halloween video in the group has been viewed well over 200x.

I also submitted the Halloween Costume Contest to Sweeprs.com which is a digg like contest/sweepstakes site, where you can submit your contest and others vote on it. Speaking of Digg, if you want to Digg the contest here is the Halloween Contest Digg Link.

Dreamascream Halloween Contest Video

September 29, 2007 at 6:50 pm (Halloween Costume Giveaway, Halloween Costumes, Uncategorized)

My friend Jim made this video for me for the Dreamascream Halloween Costume Giveaway.
One of the ways to enter the contest is to make a Halloween video on Viddler.com, which can be anything from a kids Halloween parade, a homemade Halloween horror movie, or a video of you telling a Halloween joke. In other words it does not need to be anything fancy. Just make sure you tag the video Dreamascream, and put a link to Dreamascream in the comments.
Viddler is a cool site for posting these videos, because you can use either a webcam or any camera that makes movies.
So head on over to Viddler and get your Halloween video entry in for the Dreamascream Halloween Costume Giveaway.
