We are ecstatic to announce our 2nd Annual Rock U Mentally Costume Contest winners!!!!! It was great to see some families getting involved in creating an original costume! For these families, some great memories were made, while working on these costumes.
And so......drum roll please.........The winners are!!!
Jamison, Leah and Halle. The Cat in the Hat costume utilized some recycled items, such as the black clothing, and the Thing 1 and Thing 2 t-shirts were a gift that inspired Jamison to suggested that they use them for Halloween costumes. Some fun accessories were added and Voila!!! A Fantastic Family Costume!!! Great Job Horn Family!!!

How different are your Halloween memories from those of your kids? I remember the focus was much the same, Candy!!!!! and Costume!! The procedure is still pretty much the same too. Wait until dark, go out in costume and yell Trick Or Treat at your neighbors doors, and get candy. Go home let parents check candy for bad things like razor blades, then eat as much candy as your parents would let you, and hide the leftovers from the rest of the family! There is one thing that seems to be different to me, and that's how you came up with your costume. Pardon the expression but "back in the day", if you wore a store bought costume you were probably wearing a pretty cheesy plastic mask with an elastic string around the back, and an even worse plastic dress like thing on which was printed the body of whatever character your were trying to be. Now when you walk into a store during this season there are costumes of every type complete with wigs, wings, accessories and of course full on fabric outfits that will survive much longer than just one night of candy grabbing. This is great stuff, but it has taken all of the fun out of putting a costume together! Whether you were crafty or not, you had to create the costume. Find stuff in your closets, get out the paint and cardboard boxes and make something up! Mom's clothes were always great princess dresses! True the costumes may not have been as elaborate, sparkly, or quite as close a match to the original character that they are intended to be, but it sure was a lot more fun using your imagination and a good bit cheaper!!!
That's why we started our costume contest! To try to encourage families to spend some time together creating their costumes!! You would be surprised what you can come up with once you start thinking about it!! It doesn't have to be anything over the top! It just gives you and your kids a certain amount of pride when you do it yourself!!! And you might create some new family memories!!

We are thrilled to announce our 2nd annual Halloween Costume Contest! We want to challenge everyone to make a costume this year instead of going out and buying a pre-made outfit!!Better yet maybe you could make it out of recycled materials!!! We encourage you to look around your house, or your neighbours, and find things that you could recycle into a costume! We used this concept to create some of the costumes from our show......like our Space Man costume or the yellow submarine and race car for our mascots! We used duct tape on some old suit jackets to make our "Bee" costumes, and towels for chaps for our Cowgirl. Check our website Rockumentally.com to see photos of all of the costumes.
First prize will be: a $50. Target gift card, a DVD of "Rock U Mentally Live", A Rock U Mentally CD and a Rock U Mentally T shirt!!!!
Second Prize will be: a" Rock U mentally Live"DVD, A Rock U Mentally CD and A T shirt
Third Prize will be: a "Rock U Mentally Live" DVD
All you have to do is email your photos of your costumes to email@example.com.
Contest deadline is Nov. 5th. Prizes will be awarded on Nov. 15th.
So start looking through your closets, your recycle bins, and maybe even the trash, and see what you can dream up..........or as we like to say it........"Imagine What You Can Do!!!!!!"
