Our Costume Contest is now open for voting
Just like last year, round one is a rating round. You have the opportunity to rate all entries with a "Yay" (aka a thumbs up if you like it) or a "Nay" (aka a thumbs down if you don't like it). The 75 pets with the highest cumulative ratings will move on to the next round, where normal voting resumes.
Also, if you rate all 211 entries this year, you'll get an extra bonus vote to use in round three!
And as a quick warning as in year's past, please only use one jnAccount to vote. Each year we usually have to disqualify a handful of people that made the contest unfair by voting on several accounts.
There are 35

If that Neo-NFT hater wins
Some great entries in here!! Not surprised to see a couple NFT-themed entries, good job.
I really don't expect mine to make it to the next round, I just entered it hoping to give at least a few people a chuckle.
i've voted for a few but i just want to say that the Twilight Sparkle x Mordecai - Airplanes one made me CHORTLE, i hope everyone gets to see it lol
I had to look up quite a few this time, but I can see it's going to be tough to narrow it down in the next round.
Nice work everyone!

the mordetwi one....
OMG! Princess Demurra!!!
I miss that show so much! Thank you for such a heartwarming and creative costume!
The Phantom Orange Shirt Guy!
Fatberg in a Sewer: Genius! 👏😎
Some great costumes this year! Good work everyone and best of luck making it past round one!
Good luck guys! There are some really cool entries
I got my votes in!
Wirt brought back memories and makes me want to watch Over the Garden Wall again...
Voting on Costumes is a great way to spend a weekend off the Neopets site proper. Jellyneo comes through again.

Some nice costumes this year. Some making fun of NFTs.
There are some fantastic costumes this year, I loved the Jackson Galaxy one, hilarious! Good luck to all!

Congratulations to all entrants! Voting went very fast this year, lots of great options. Good luck everyone.
I'm about half way through rating.
A lot of awesome costumes this year. Some of them are, frankly, terrifying. The Frankenstein one is lovely, and the Light at the End of the Tunnel is truly heart-warming.
Wait ... there's a Jackson Galaxy??? Awesome pawsome!! Haven't got to that one yet....
So many good ones... I'm very partial to Steve from Blues Clues and Elle Woods, among others

I feel like we already know who will win (not my favourite, though). I've picked a dozen or so favourites, but I'm afraid I won't be able to rate all the pets this year

Sorry for double posting, but there is something that's been bugging me for years (and I always post about it)
Could you please devise a way to temporarily skip the costumes we don't know? So that voting becomes faster if we first get all the costumes we know, and in the end we'll have more time to look up the unknown ones.
@rosi - the set-up right now is that the costumes with the fewest votes (yay or nay) come up first, so at the end each costume has had around the same number of people vote for it. Your votes will be saved if you want to take a break, but a 'skip' or 'save for later' button could throw off the even factor
:o I didn't know it was set up like that, that's so cool!

@Suzuka: Thank you. This really explains why, in the past few years, even if I waited for a long time before refreshing in hopes that a more familiar costume would pop up, I ended up having the same costume I wished to temporarily skip ^^;;
I had another window open the whole time so I could look up any characters I wasn't familiar with. And I'm old (and don't have kids), so it was a lot!
I am always delighted when someone is able to capture a character recognizably with our limited Neopets items. Especially when they need to get creative!
My entry wasn't too good, but hey, I wanted to have some fun and give it a shot
@rosi: Yea, as Suzuka said, if we changed the way we present costumes in round 1, we wouldn't be able to make sure all costumes receive the same number of votes.
In all the prior years of us using this system, all costumes end up receiving the same # of votes, +/- 1-2, which lets us calculate an apples-to-apples rating on who to send to round 2. It's not likely something we'll change since it really helps keep it fair for all entries.
All done now! The Fiery Rage entry really reflects the neopian mood right now.
Round 2 is going to be really tough (as usual).
Yall are so creative and gifted. Thank you for entertaining us. Amazing!
I do love this contest ♡♡♡
!!!!the orange shirt guy, indeed!!!!
