Last month we announced our new monthly contest, Dreamer Dress Up. Our first challenge to you was to create a Halloween costume which featured some of our socks, or accessories. We had a lot of amazing entries. They were so good, in fact, that we had to share our ten finalists with all of you!
These first three finalists are looking spectacular in shades of red. Malia McCollister, a former ballet dancer, used the Puffy Chiffon Mini Petticoat to give her Firebird costume the right flare. Elizabeth Hedrick used tons of layers to make her pirate queen costume come alive, including a Mid-Length Petticoat, Ruffle Striped OTKs, and Flapper Buttoned Sock Garters. Yoko Mizuhara, our next finalist, modified her Solid Opaque Thigh Highs for her Bombshell Harley Quinn costume, and is a huge advocate of It Stays! Body Adhesive.
Our next two finalists are rocking the steam-punk look. Brianna Clarke is ready for a Victorian Air Ship ride in her Solid Over the Knee Stockings and her Extra Long Simply Adjustable Sock Garters. Amy Robinson made some creative edits to her Solid Opaque Thigh Highs, which she keeps held high with her Double Grip Clips.
We loved Cindy Dulay’s portrayal of Mary Sanderson, the middle sister from the movie Hocus Pocus. She is using the plus sized Striped Over the Knee stockings to keep her witchy legs warm. And speaking of needing to stay warm, our next entrant, known only as Pixi Faery, is staying snuggley by layering rust colored Long Cuffable Scrunchable Socks and Dark Brown Knees.
And now for our three winners, who will each receive a $30 Sock Dreams Gift Card!
In her portrayal of the Queen of the Rainbow Goblins, Joyce Churchia created her own sleeves using Rainbow Knee High socks and Cotton Overknees, and completed her outfit with Vertical Rainbow Fishnet Tights. Kathleen Weaver is clearly excited about her Peter Pan costume, and so were we! She is wearing the ever popular Long Cuffable Scrunchable Socks in olive. Our final winner, and perhaps our favorite, is Sara Bielaczyc. How adorable is she in her purple Chevron Sleeves and green and plum Super Stripe Knee Highs?
We want to congratulate all of our finalists. And to do that, we decided to throw in a bonus. We are giving each of them 10% off their next purchase! Feeling a bit jealous?

As business starts to really pick up for the fall season, we’ve decided it’s about time we started a new tradition around here. For 14 years we’ve been showing you our socks and how style them, and while we will continue to do so, we think it’s about time we recognized the style and talents of our amazing customer base!
In case you didn’t catch our latest newsletter, you can check it out here – in it we announced our new monthly contest, guidelines, and gave some examples of the sort of outfit shots we’re looking for.
To sum it up, we’re now taking submissions for next month’s contest, with a theme of Halloween costumes! Please read the following rules; entries that do not follow these cannot be considered.
• Photos are due October 13th and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org; please let us know which products you used, and tell us a little about your costume, including which Sock Dreams product is featured!
• Your costume must feature socks, tights, and/or accessories purchased from Sock Dreams, and they must be clearly visible as part of the costume.
• Photos must be taken for our contest; no photos from past years or photos submitted to other contests.
• Please keep your costume work-safe and free of any offensive subject matter.
• Make sure your photo is well-lit, in-focus, and there is no clutter (or toilets!) in the background.
