As Halloween festivities returned to the CWE, the task of choosing which contestants to feature in this post chronicling the main event was a challenge. What really struck me was how clever and creative the costumes were, case in point: “Over the Rainbow,” above.
When Emcees Trish Bush and Jeremy Corray asked contestants who made their costumes, almost all answered that they were handmade.
Channeling Kim Kardashian at 2021’s Met Gala.
Characters from Guardians of the Galaxy.Pennywise from It.The Operation Game drew huge applause.All 3 Day of the Dead costumes were handmade by the woman, above right and below.
The Marvel character Venom.Dorothy The Joker.
And the winners were:
An Egyptian Pharaoh, above and below, was the 3rd place winner and took home a $500 prize.
The Pharoah told the emcees he started making his costume last winter.
The 2nd Place prize of $1000 went to “Woman Having a Baby.” above and below.
As the woman next to me explained to her companion: “She’s delivering a man-child.” The audience erupted in laughter when the “baby,” visible on the big screen, waved farewell to the crowd.
The 1st Place prize of $2500 went to the Dragon from The Game of Thrones.
And so, the fantastic costume extravaganza of 2021’s Halloween celebration came to an end, and the Street Party began.
