    thqnk you for making this a contest based on halloween costume and fun and NOT popularity by vote. I dont even enter those. I dont feel they are fair and find them biased because of all the blogs that have you vote daily for rafflecopter entry point, or people with FB friends that they bother to vote.

    I like that Fidose Of Reality will pick the “winners” based on merit.

    Looking forward to seeing all the cute pics.

  2. StellaChico says

    This is going to be so much fun…I can’t wait to see the photos of the Halloween doggies! I will be sending a photo of CHICO …just have to pick which one! 🙂
