I had so many great costumes submitted this Halloween for my costume contest I really had a hard time deciding who to choose as the winner! To briefly recap my criteria, I was looking for:

1. Creativity in the costume design
2. A hoop being used as an integral part of the costume (not just an afterthought)
3. Hand-made or self-designed costumes as opposed to store-bought.

First place wins a pair of my glow-in-the-dark Candy Corn minis and originally, that was the only prize I was giving away. However, I was so impressed with every costume that was submitted, I’m going to go ahead and give 25% off coupons to everyone who participated. Thank you all, and now, without further ado, here are the costumes…

mad hooper     dead hooper
mockingjay hooper     office hooper
pebbles hooper
tony hooper     spiderman hoop

And the winner is…

hunger Games Hooper


I was so impressed with the creativity and effort that went into this costume. Each feather is hand cut and indivifually sewn on. The wings detach at the wrists and shoulders so it’s hoopable…dazzling and practicle! Thank you for entering, and congratulations, you are the winner!

There’s a pair of Candy Corn Glow-in-the-Dark minis coming your way!

Thank you to everyone who participated, and I look forward to what hooping costumes you can come up with next year!
