May the most voted costume win!
Community News Service COLlive is launching the world’s most exciting online Purim costume contest, sharing the joyous spirit of the holiday with others.
The annual contest features original and refreshing costume ideas that many times give a glimpse into the social fabric of the Chabad Lubavitch Jewish community around the globe.
Top contenders in the past – from Brooklyn, to Las Vegas and Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine – were dressed as Rabbi Itche Kadoozy, a Smirnoff bottle, Fedex and UPS delivery people, a lemonade-themed family, a laundry machine and a walking picnic table.
Last year’s winners included a family dressed as characters of Christopher Awdry’s Railway Series story books: Sir Topham Hatt, Lady Hat and their Really Useful Engines, and a couple dressed as an amusement park roller coaster.
The contest will be run on COLlive’s Facebook page. Users can enter multiple costume photos, up to 8 contestants.
There will be 3 winners chosen by online voters. Voters can cast 1 vote per entry per day. Submission will end March 13th, Voting will close on March 20th, 12:00 pm Eastern Time.
The prizes are sponsored by Focus Camera, the oldest and biggest camera store in Brooklyn offering friendly service and a variety of camera and camcorders for professionals and beginners at great prices.
