Fandango Family Halloween Costume Contest

Fandango Family Halloween

Fandango Halloween Contest

We are movie lovers in this family. We see several movies each month and often meet other family members to see movies together. That is something that my family and my husband's family loves to do. It was great that we had this in common!

One of the fun things about Halloween is dressing up as your favorite movie character. This year, we are all going as Ghostbusters.

Beginning today, families can share their movie-inspired costumes in Fandango Family’s “My Movie Costume Contest” for the chance to win one of four prizes, each consisting of $500, plus a year’s worth of Fandango movie tickets.  To enter, families can post their costume pictures on Instagram with one of four costume categories for Most Original, Spookiest, Best Superhero and Best Animated Character.

Costumes will be judged by Fandango Family bloggers Raijean Stroud of, Stacie Connerty (me) of, Mitch Chaitlin of, and Vera Sweeney of


Throughout the Fandango Family Costume Contest, fans can enter by posting their costume pictures on Instagram with the appropriate category hashtag AND follow and tag @Fandango. The winners for each category will win $500 cash and a year of movie tickets (valued at $500.00)

The contest runs from 10/9 and the winner will be announced on or around 11/3. Fandango will be choosing the top 10 in every category and then sending to the judges for the final vote.

  1. I haven’t seen the movie Frozen yet, but I swear it’s everywhere no surprise to see the halloween costumes this year!

    Thanks for sharing about the contest!

  2. What a fun contest. Congrats on being picked as a judge.

  3. How fun being a judge! Those are some awesome costumes.

  4. We’re going to be in Orlando this year for Halloween. We’re still trying to decide whether we’ll do Halloween at Disney or Universal. If we decide to do Halloween at Disney, my twins will probably go with Frozen inspired costumes. If we decide to do Disney at Universal, they’ll probably dress as Minions. Either way, I’ll make sure to enter the contest. $500 cash and movie tickets means that the hubs and I can go see a movie AND have money to pay a babysitter! 🙂
