Break out your best dark eyeliner, spider webs or zombie paste cream because the Hub network will be hosting their first-ever Halloween Bash. The two-hour special will be hosted by Kenan Thompson [“Saturday Night Live”], who will be joined by style maven Martha Stewart and a panel of celebrity judges who will determine the best costumes out of 50 semi-finalists from each state in the country. The winner will receive $25,000 and a walk-on role in the Hub’s Emmy Award-winning television series “R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour: The Series”.The costume contest is open to all ages and there can be an individual submission or up to five people per group submission. The six categories for the costume contest are:
Howl-arious – Shows the lighter side of Halloween with a take on a fun, funny or otherwise hilarious costume.
Spook-tacular – Get ready to frighten America by showcasing the most spine-chilling costume for all the ghosts and ghouls out there.
Mad Genius – Unique, original, innovative and never seen before. A knight in armor fashioned from bottle caps, bat wings made from old umbrellas, or a cardboard-box jetpack, the possibilities are endless. Display a costume unlike any other — show your Mad Genius.
Blast from the Past – Take a stroll down memory lane with a timeless costume. Memories, nostalgia and yesteryear brought to life. Show your take on great figures from before the 20thcentury or a retro 50’s sock hop get up, 60’s flower child or other “period” inspired costumes.
Animal Kingdom – Transform into a living creature from the past or present. Be a roaring lion, a school of jellyfish, a firefly, or a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Everyday Stuff – We’re looking for the coolest refrigerator/freezer, remote control, mailbox, block of Swiss cheese, telephone and more. Be creative and transform the ordinary into the extra-ordinary.
The first annual Hub Network Halloween Bash will be held on the evening of October 26, 2013.
