Generally, in the fine print, it says that once you submit your design it's the property of the company. This doesn't mean it's not a legitimate contest, just a heads up for those who may be proprietary about their designs to read the expanded rules.Rebecca

Through a contact at Costume College, this lady contacted me asking if I'd be interested in entering this contest. I'm not a designer, and have too much on my plate to do this. But I told her I would forward her info to all the costume groups.
PLEASE REPLY TO HER, NOT ME, WITH TO THE EMAIL BELOW.
Thank you for getting back to me!
We are totally open to getting submissions for historical costumes. We carry a wide variety of Renaissance, steampunk, Civil War, colonial and other historical costumes and I personally find some of the historical costumes to be the most interesting, detailed, and professionally crafted. And of course we're interested in anything fantasy or sci-fi! You don't have to design or sell costumes commercially to participate, we're also contacting a lot of theatre and drama schools and inviting their students and alumni to participate, as well as cosplayers and other costume enthusiasts who just love creating costumes.
Attached is the press release for the costume design contest. The sketch submission form is located right on our homepage and we also have the contest details/timeline located on this splash page: http://www.halloweencostumes.com/contest/costume-design-contest.asp
I'd really appreciate it if you'd be able to forward it to any friends or fellow costumers who may be interested, and it'd be great if you were able to post the costume design contest information on your blog for any other costume designers who may be interested. I would also be delighted if you were able to post the information to the San Diego Costume Guild group or the Costumer's Guild West in LA. Even if you were unable to participate, this would be really great exposure for the contest itself!
Let me know if you have any questions, or if there's anything I can do to further assist you. I hope that you choose to enter or at least share this information on your blog and within your professional organizations, and I look forward to seeing some of the contest submissions!
