The Big Wicked Online Pageant

Two years ago, Beth Coffey (may her blog R.I.P.) hosted The Big Wicked Online Pageant, a blog event conceived by Bubs (aka Joe the Cop) with the help of Beth and Dale. Although the "first annual" pageant turned out to be a big hit among bloggers, it died after that first year.

Well, get ready for a Hallowe'en miracle, kids. We've resurrected TBWOP. It's alive! IT'S ALIVE!!

The pageant is a great way to connect with blogfriends, new and old, and is open to all of you guys and ghouls who wish to participate.

The Big Wicked Online Pageant Rules:

Scan a photo from your Halloween past. (Ideally, the photos should be from your childhood but we'll take what you've got.)

Post it to your blog on Friday, October 29.

Once you post your photo, email me the URL to that specific post.

I'll post a link to every participant's blog by Saturday afternoon.

I've also added a new wrinkle this year. Although the main goal of this pageant is to have some fun and get to know other bloggers, every pageant has to have a winner, right? At least that's what all the stage moms I know say. So, once you've seen all the participants' photos, come back and vote for your favorite. You can either cast your vote in the comments section or send it via email. Please don't be a monster and vote for yourself.

The pageant king or queen will not only win bragging rights, but also a special treat from me: a Halloween mix CD! (And it won't have "Thriller" on it because, seriously, who doesn't already own that?)

I will probably offer up a pic of my own, but I'll remove myself from the competition. Besides, I doubt I have a better pic than the one I used last time.

Now, go warm up your scanners and scare up those old photos!

Sadly, as the youngest of four, the only photos of me from childhood are from the time we built the new garage and I happened to be standing next to it at the ribbon cutting.

But I think I can scare up a more recent photo of me in all my Hallowe'en glory...

That just sounds like fun, I'll play. I, too, have no Halloween pictures from my childhood since I was raised by wolves, but I do have pictures of my adult self behaving like a child so hopefully that will do.

I work until 10 tonight, then all day Saturday. My entry may be late!!

Gwen said...

It is done, my liege. Sorry it's so late, it took mom all day to find the pictures. Or to figure out her scanner.

FUN!

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
