Halloween Costume Contest: Entries Now Open!
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on September 23, 2021, 9:48 pm NST

Happy almost October! Jellyneo's Fifteenth Annual Halloween Costume Contest is now open for entries! We wanted to give you plenty of time to prepare your costumes, so you have from now until October 7th at 11:59PM NST to submit your pet dressed up for Halloween.

Just like last year, we will be accepting as many entries as we can for round one of voting. (Barring any rules violations of course, and we also won't be accepting 50 vampires, so be creative!) 75 of the top rated pets from round one will move on to round two, and from there the top 30 will compete for a gold trophy.

For a full list of rules and dates, please see our Costume Contest '20 page. And then start dressing up your pet! (There are no new rule changes from last year.)

As a warning to everyone planning on submitting: like we said above, we will only be accepting, at the most, 1-2 variations of a particular costume. In other words, only about 1-2 vampires, only 1-2 Ednas, etc. So if you'd like a better chance of getting in, make a unique, but still recognizable, costume!

(Before submitting, be sure to check out the rules!)

Ugh I have an idea but I believe everyone and their mothers will send the same idea too 😫
recklesse, September 24, 2021 7:53 AM NST
Submitted mine.
It may not qualify, but it depicts my sentiments at the time.

What is meant by "recognizable"? Does that mean it must be something specific? My costumes tend to be 'vague but identifiable'.

@clock_flower: If no one can recognize your costume or "get it", no one will vote for it.

You're free to enter something vague, of course (as long as it can be identified in the "Costume Name" field). We're pretty liberal in accepting any entries following the NC/NP clothing requirements. It's really just more of a guideline for if you want to have a chance of winning the vote

If an item hasn't been converted yet will it still show up when I submit my entry?
debgil, September 25, 2021 11:16 AM NST
JN costume contest is one of the few things I like about Halloween.
ziporen, September 25, 2021 1:39 PM NST
@annw: Yes. JN grabs the static image for the pet, so anything that shows up in that will show up in the entry.
chocolatjellopudding, September 25, 2021 7:03 PM NST
Yaaaaas. Time to get creative
dave - JN Staff, September 26, 2021 2:15 PM NST
@annw: To confirm, Ziporen is correct. As long as the item is applied to your Neopet and you can see it on, say, the sidebar on the old layout, it will show up on JN. (You can even preview your Neopet's image before submitting!)

Hi, quick question: I submitted my entry and it says 'Pending', can I change my pet's customization or do I have to keep that look through the 7th? Thanks!
recklesse, September 27, 2021 6:30 AM NST
@chombysbiggestfan, between the bit that says pending and the picture of your pet there's a 'reminder' paragraph.

It says you can change the customisation right away if you want to.
chombysbiggestfan, September 27, 2021 8:28 AM NST
@recklesse Thank you!
contessa, September 27, 2021 1:48 PM NST
I sent mine in but since that TV show isn't on anymore, not sure who might get the reference. Still, one of my favorites!
recklesse, September 28, 2021 2:04 AM NST
@contessa, most people look up characters they aren't familiar with to compare so you should be fine.
sixtygirl, September 28, 2021 11:17 AM NST
can you use costumes that already exits
purplebin, September 30, 2021 9:06 AM NST
I started building a costume of one thing that morphed into another thing as I couldn't find enough items that worked. I'm happy with it, even though lots of people won't get it or think it's an especially good costume.
jaudaran, September 30, 2021 3:35 PM NST
I have such a bad, bad idea, and I'm so happy about it. Thanks for giving us something to be excited about right now.

Just double checking, it doesn't matter if the pet is on our main or a side, right?
jaudaran, September 30, 2021 6:05 PM NST
Oh, nevermind! In hindsight I kinda thought I might've asked the same question last year, and I just found the news post from last year. I did, and you answered already. *facepalm* Thanks again, though.
spookekoopaling, October 1, 2021 2:04 PM NST
tfw You remembered to add a NP item literally a second AFTER entering ;A; I need to fix my entry and re-enter once its rejected sorreeeyy! xD
