CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Think you have a great costume for Halloween or homecoming this year? Show it to us! FlipSide and Charleston Town Center are sponsoring a costume-themed photo contest this month, and we want to see your best look.
The top two overall winners will each receive $50 mall gift cards. Also, one winner each in four other categories will win a $20 gift card to either Starbucks or one of the mall's restaurants. Those categories are: couple or group, fictional character, most creative and scariest.
Additionally, the school with the most entries will win a $100 mall gift card, good for food for a victory party.
The winners will be printed in our November issue, and you'll be able to see all the entries on our Facebook page. They'll be judged by FlipSide editor Amy Robinson, Charleston Town Center marketing director Lisa McCracken and West Virginia Style Team blogger Autumn D.F. Hopkins.
