I have wanted to have a costume contest for some time now. Of course, I can't remember why I decided to wait. Whatever the reason, it doesn't seem relevant now so I'm going to press on.
I'm considering parameters. Most likely one of the rules will be that there has to be at least one homemade item in the costume ensemble. And, of course, points would be given for modesty. Also the genre would probably be Fantasy, Historical Middle Ages, or Fanta-sci. I would say Steampunk, as well, but Steampunk is such a unique and complex little culture that it almost wouldn't seem fair to include it with the medieval theme. Maybe someday I'll do a sci-fi and Steampunk costume contest.
My dilemma is what I could give as a prize. And that is where you come in. Comment below with your ideas as to what kind of prize I could give to first, second, and third place winners in a Barefoot Bladeweaver costume contest. I can use all the ideas I can get!
