BlogDailyHerald’s Third Annual Costume Contest: Results

Thanks to all who submitted photos of their costumes to our third annual costume contest. We received an overwhelming number of submissions this year, and we were glad that we had the chance to bear witness to your creativity and execution, even though we probably saw you on the street/at a party/at Jo’s at some point this weekend but just don’t remember. In true Twelve Angry Men fashion, the editors of BlogDH engaged in a heated debate over your submissions before reaching a final consensus. Without further ado, the MVP of Halloween.
