DC's First Annual Halloween Party

A thread about pirates and a conversation between Barbara L and PrincessFiona had me make a joke about their costumes for the Halloween party. I got to thinking what it would be like to actually have a party.

Now of course logistics make this only doable in a virtual situation, but in some ways that always makes it more fun. So, everyone is invited to this party. Let us know what you will be wearing, and what you will be bringing to eat. If you have any suggests of activities they would be great to. Just remember we do have some younger folk around so keep that in mind to.

Okay, since I am hosting this thing, I will go first.

Of course, I am going to be dress as Jill, the beautiful, young cake baking heroine of the Cake Mania computer game series. To be honest, this wasn't much of a stretch because other than her being a cartoon, we look pretty much alike

I will be supplying pumpkin cupcakes decorated with all sorts of fun Halloween themes!

I'll also run the apple bobbing station. Hokey, maybe, but no Halloween party should be without one!

So, who's next?

Okay, everyone, this is really great. We have our judges (sorry, Paula, Simon and Randy were all busy so our Admins are filling in). I can tell you the prize is your own custom title under your name (like mine is Certified Cake Maniac) and will fill you in on the details asap. The contest will run until October 30th. If you have already posted before the contest details are posted, you will be able to revise your entry if you want.

Have fun, tell your DC friends, and let's party!

I'll be coming as I am (picture attached).

I will also bring the Swedish Tea Ring, Canteens, Dutch pastries, and hot dogs. Oh, I heard there might be swimming--should I bring my swimsuit? (Picture didn't show up, but the link is at the bottom).

LOL I was watching George Lopez yesterday, and Carmen had just joined the poetry club. She said to her mom and dad, "I'm closing the blinds now because my friends are starting to get color." I'm right there with you and the white legs!

Hey, now you're talkin'! This is starting to be a party! I was worried that no one was interested, but hey, it's Halloween!!!

So, how this is going to work is, if you want to enter the contest to win a one-of-a-kind title under your name, you need to come up with a creative costume - we are just going for creative here (and we have some fine examples so far. Pictures are good and no, it doesn't have to be you in the costume (in fact, that way you can be more creative!).

A second prize will go for the most creative treat brought because after all, this is Discuss Cooking, not Discuss Costumes! Again, it doesn't have to be something you would normally bring, just creative. Pictures are good, recipes are GREAT!

Just need detailed (in a fun way) descriptions and/or pictures.

Rules:
1. No moderator/administrator can win, but they can enter
2. Only one prize will be offered to a person so you won't win in both categories.
3. Judges are our Administrators, Frank Z, Janet H, and Alix
4. Please keep it fun and clean - we do have younger members.
5. Contest closes midnight October 30th and the winners will be announced as soon as the judges can get together on it.

Oh, and you don't like to dress up? Fine, just bring some food and hang out - comment about the other people's entries and have fun!
