Boy, our customers did not make it easy for us to choose a winner in this year’s Halloween Costume Contest. Every year, the costumes keep getting better and better! This time around we received nearly one hundred entries featuring dragons, superheroes, yellow-brick road travelers, witches and more. We had a wonderful time marveling at everyone’s creative talents but, in the end, we chose one “cheesy” we think you’ll love.


Five-year old Silas B.’s wheelchair-mounted mousetrap costume did more than capture a mouse, it captured our hearts. Oh, and it also netted his family this year’s $100 eSN eGift Card! Nice job, Silas (and Mom and Dad, of course)!

But wait, the judging was so close, we simply had to choose a Second Place winner for the first time ever!


Colin V.’s Jack Sparrow costume, complete with a very intimidating Black Pearl, sailed its way to a $50 eSN eGift Card. Yar! T’was quite the costume, indeed, young pirate.

And for those of you who didn’t win, we hope you’re still extremely proud of yourselves. What you’ve done to make Halloween amazing for the children in your lives is nothing short of incredible. If you haven’t already, take a moment to look through our Costume Gallery on Facebook one last time and give yourself a round of applause. Thank you so much for sharing some of your Halloween fun with us here at eSpecial Needs.
