Patch's Halloween Costume Contest: And the Winner of the Best Costume in Illinois Is...

The Illinois winner, who will receive $250, will now be entered to win the $5,000 grand prize in Patch's Best Halloween Costume in America contest.

You know what they say—no (goblin) guts, no glory.

Congratulations to Susan Wagner, the Illinois winner of Patch’s Best Halloween Costume in America Contest.

Hundreds of adults and children from across Illinois entered the contest. Parents posted costume photos of themselves and their families from this Halloween or from years past. We had lots of ghouls, ghosts, and Honey Boo Boos to choose from, but this Indiana Jones Lego couple costume won us over.

As the winner of the $250 prize for the best costume in Illinois, Susan Wagner is now in the running to be the $5,000 grand prize winner of Patch's Best Halloween Costume in America contest.

The winner will be announced on Monday, Nov. 12.

This is fantastic! I wonder how hard it was to walk in them, though :)

We had a wonderful time creating these guys! Walking in them was a bit tricky, but if we shuffled along it wasn't too bad. The hardest part was walking up the step to get into the house!
