How To Enter the Virtual Boo-Thru Costume Contest

step 1

Start preparing and making your Halloween costume! Be sure to register to attend the Boo-Thru Drive-Thru as you have to attend the event to enter the Virtual Halloween Costume Contest. All costumes must be homemade so gather whatever you can around your home and be creative – have fun with it! Go the extra step and wear your amazing costume to the Boo-Thru! We wish you the best of luck coming up with the coolest, most creative, and exciting costume for us to judge. Keep it PG! We aren’t trying to scare anyone and would rather see creative costumes than gory or gross.

step 2

Have someone take a photo of you in your costume! Be sure to use good lighting and to get close enough to the camera where we can see all the details you put into your costume. Feel free to use props to make it interesting and stand out!

step 3

With your parents permission and assistance, upload your photo to your social media account (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) and tell us about your costume! Your post must include the hashtag #DBCBooThru and tag the Dan Beard Council by typing @DanBeardCouncil to qualify for the Virtual Boo-Thru Costume Contest. Also, if you would like more people to see your amazing costume, you can go the extra step and tag @CubWorld and @Spookoree!
