FAQ and NOTES about The Pumpkin King.
1. Cosplay/Costume Presentation- Participants will be scored on their overall presentation of cosplay or costume. Whether you have a great cosplay, gothic style, or are just plain terrifying, we want you! Criteria will be loose, but will reward quality, creativity, and presence.
2. We will have a brief, live, on stage interview on Friday. Participants will be asked some light, fun Halloween related questions.
3. Fear Factor/Gross out competiton. Participants will need to show they have the true heart of Halloween by participating in some surprise fear inducing challenges live on stage. (These will be mild and will not be physically demanding.)
***Participants will pay an admission fee that will include a GOLD Ticket package and all of those perks, and professional edited photos from The Pumpking King photo shoot.
The Pumpkin King Contestant will receive the GOLD ticket package included with participation in the event because we want to encourage as many participants as possible. If you purchase the ticket at the discounted rate and do not participate in the contest, you will not be admitted into the show.
