1.  Most “favorites”  via the Tip Junkie Green Heart button.
2.  Easiest to make.
3.  Most creative.

Tip Junkie members will vote for their favorite Halloween costumes via the Tip Junkie Green Heart button. The first winner will be the costume with the most votes or “favorites”.  In an effort not to allow this to turn into a popularity contest of sorts, the winners in the other two categories will be picked by Laurie Turk and the Tip Junkie editors.  {wink}
