A prop is something you hold that adds a “wow” factor to your costume. We’re talking anything from witch brooms, shields, and books to wands, hoverboards, staffs, and more. if you hold it, it’s eligible for the Halloween Props Contest. Also, a heads up: we have special judges prizes for best light-up prop and best non-weapon prop.
Our friends at Adafruit are supplying the prizes for this contest, and there are some good ones: The grand prize winner will be walking home with a Printrbot Simple Metal 3D printer and Ladyada’s Electronics Toolkits.
