We only have ONE submission for this fun contest! This is a contest for those who love to dress up in costumes and be a character for a day (or two). Any costume is acceptable as long as it is modest and not too gory. For those of you who are Realmies, feel free to submit your fun costume banquet photos! Everyone spent so much time preparing their perfect costume. Let's give them even more love!
