Oh. Oh. Oh. My God. Deep breaths.
I can’t believe IT’S FINALLY TIME.
I’ve been waiting ALL YEAR for this.
No, it’s not giving the middle finger. I never said I was good at this.
Last fall, when this blog was still called Go Guilty Pleasures!, I asked readers to make a 30-second video blog about a favorite guilty pleasure. The winner received a custom jack-o-lantern, designed and carved by yours truly.
Imagine apple picking with THIS.
I know. As if fall wasn’t already the Darren Criss of seasons.
I had so much fun with it, I immediately started thinking about next year’s contest. Video blogs are tricky; I wanted something easier for participants.
Then this happened:
Did you hear Renée likes to win? (rasjacobson.com)
And this happened:
Donah, aren’t slap bracelets royally awesome? (sweetjellybean.com)
And it hit me. I love hats. All hats. It’s, without a doubt, a top guilty pleasure. Thus, I bring to you:
Design a hat incorporating something fun / funny / silly that speaks to your inner chipmunk. Use ANYTHING, so long as you can find a way to put it on your head and take a picture.
If you want to stay anonymous, you can put the hat on a pet or stuffed animal, or I will gladly superimpose a head of
your my choosing onto the picture before posting it.
Submit your pictures via email, Twitter, or your blog (just be sure to let me know you’ve done so).
One submission per person.
Friday, October 26, 2012, 12 MIDNIGHT EST.
DEADLINE EXTENDED to Saturday, October 27, 2012, 12 MIDNIGHT EST.
1st Place: A custom jack-o-lantern from Go Jules Go. Since I can’t ship that to you, you’ll also receive a pair of ‘stache glasses!
Runner-up: ‘Stache-glasses, ‘o course.
(If you already have a pair of ‘stache glasses, I’ll give you some other fun, ‘stache-y options.)
I’ll post your submissions throughout the month, and announce the winner on Halloween (Wednesday, October 31, 2012, 6am EST).
If you didn’t just pee a little from excitement, you’re dead to me.
Good luck! …I love you.
