So as has now become tradition, the wife and I are holding a Halloween party this year!

We've decided to hold it on Saturday the 3rd of November for a variety of reasons - People will have been paid so will still have time to get anything they need for costumes (probably at a cheap rate too seeing as Halloween will be dead for another year); Halloween is midweek so most people wouldn't come due to working the next day; and the weekend before Halloween just doesn't seem right...

Something else that has become tradition is prizes for costumes. This year I thought I'd mix it up a little by having a prize for Best Costume, Funniest Costume, and Sexiest Costume (I only chose this because I found a cool trophy!)

Funniest will get this trophy:

Sexiest will get:

And Best will get this one:

I'm really looking forward to giving out trophies for different categories this year :D And don't worry ladies, I'm not a total d-bag, the sexiest trophy can be won by either a guy or a gal - or whoever pays me the most ;)

Great idea having the awards. I did that a couple of years ago and it's a good laugh, Ive actually received a bribe to fix this years competition, shocking eh! :lol: . Are you having a theme to your party? Planning any crazy props? I'm having mine on the 27th, I thought it best to do it then when there is still a more halloweeny buzz about the place and before guy fawkes takes over.

That sounds like a great idea. On the plus day November second is Dia Des Los Muertos in Mexico, so you are close to another Halloweenish holiday. Very nice choice for trophys.

If you make the journey Ghostface, you'd get a prize of your own!! ;)

I would come, but do not care for planes and not much for boats either. So unless there is giant bridge or underwater tunnel that I do not know about, does not look like I would be there.

Those are awesome trophies!! I was planning on doing something similar for my Halloween bash this year. Where in the world did you find those??

I have seen them once at Halloween City and Spirit.

I'm certain it will be a great party, can't wait to hear about it and see the eventual photos. I cannot attend because I will likely be passed out for several days after Halloween.

Hey, those trophies are a great idea. A fun contest and keepsake for your guests. I "won" that same Best Costume trophy a few years ago. Of course, it was awarded to me by my mother, and as her only child, I think she's a bit biased.

That's such a great pic :)

So what do you guys think: do you think I should judge the costumes or do you think I should hold a vote, where names are dropped in a hat and counted?
