Halloween ‘TEAM’ Costume Contest Rules

  • No need to pre-register to be judged... 
  • Picture (and or video) of the team ‘on-site’ in front of a goal (preferrably on a Germantown soccer field) must be submitted electronically to info@germantownlegends.com or via text message (or iCloud sharing) to (901) 652-5797.  When submitting, please include name and contact info.
  • Picture (and or video) must be taken on a soccer field, preferrably the Cloyes Soccer Field Park or Germantown Soccerplex fields.
  • Divisions determined by the number of teams submitting photos and or videos October 20 thru 10:00 PM Wednesday, October 30th.
  • 4 or more people of any ages or species make a ‘team’ (coaches may be included)
  • Put together a creative, spooky, funny or imaginative costume and wear it on your body.  All costumes are welcomed; it doesn't make any difference if they are homemade, magically found, simply appear with a flick of a wand or even purchased or rented.  This is an ‘all ages’ costume contest.  Please keep your costume “G” rated for this is a family event.
  • You must be between 0 - 100 years old and NOT be dead.  However, you MUST have a pulse.  But, if you appear to be dead, that is OK.
  • All members of your team must be human or humanoid... as a reminder, pets are not human.
  • The team costumes must create a theme such as the members of your favorite singing group or all the characters in your favorite movie or TV show.  Get creative with the teamwork.
  • Costumes may not include sharp or loose objects that could potentially harm others if contact is made on the field.
  • Very Important Weapons Policy!  Nothing that looks even remotely real.  Must be plastic, foam or cardboard.  This is NON-NEGOTIABLE!
  • The Legends reserve the right NOT to allow participants in costumes we deem inappropriate or in bad taste.  
  • If you have already won in a previous year with a fabulous costume, leave that costume at home, you cannot enter with the same costume again.  You can simply create a new costume and then you can enter every year.
  • Judges for the Halloween Team Costume Contest (or members of their immediate family) are NOT eligible for the Costume Contest.
  • You may howl, growl, wink, wiggle or screech at the judges, but no touching, poking or bribing the judges.
  • We plan to post a picture or video (of no longer than one minute in length) of all participating teams.
  • Winning teams will receive individual awards for the Halloween Contest participants.  (i.e. The entire team does NOT need to participate to enter, BUT only those who participate will receive a reward.)
