All students are invited to watch the competition, but dressing up on Halloween is reserved as a senior privilege. Mr. Naff will be our MC and the cheers of the crowd will determine the winner of each category. Seniors will start the contest followed by faculty.

CCC Points:

Points awarded based on the % of homebase dressed up (just like Week of the Wolf)

Costume Categories: There are 6 this year so please read each category before picking one!

Most Unique: What are you supposed to be?? Is your costume unlike any other? Then this is the category for you!

Most Comedic – Have a funny costume? Show it off in this category!

Fairytale/ Fantasy/ Fandom – Anything & everything make-believe from TV to movies to comics & more!

Scariest – Please keep these PG, we have restrictions that do not allow dangerous or realistic weapons, blood, gore, or anything inappropriate. If you have a specific question, please ask the office.

Best 5 minute throw together – Just like it sounds, let’s give it up for all of you who really tried hard this year… or not.

Straight from the screen – Calling all actors, celebs, reality tv shows, & characters from popular TV/ movies that do not fall under comedic or fantasy!

Seniors: Costumes must be appropriate.  Please use your common sense. Do not be culturally offensive. If a costume is inappropriate, you or your group will be disqualified and the teachers will automatically win.
