May Great Pumpkin Day project and a challenge!!

Ok! I've found my project for May Great Pumpkin Day! I have an old craft book I picked up really cheap at Hobby Lobby a few years ago. I was leafing through it instead of making corsages and bows for the big upcoming Magical Wedding this weekend and found the CUTEST autumn pillows. It's just plain pillows with felt embellishments-pumpkins, leaves, etc.-stitched on to felt squares and then attached to the pillow. I'm planning on making them for the lawn furniture for the Boo!Bash2.

Now for the challenge!

Since our party is a costume party and we give prizes for the best costumes, my second project for this month is to find prizes (or at least start looking for them) for each division of the contest, and to try to make them good prizes this time. I want to make ribbons to pin on the winners that say "Best Costume", etc. Last year I gave bags of candy for prizes. I want to find some cool things to use. So, to challenge you:

Decide if you want to have a costume contest at your gathering, and brainstorm what prizes you want to give. If you are not having a contest or even a gathering, start thinking about costume ideas.

Are you up for it?

Here's a picture from last year's contest:
