Greetings fellow HP crafters!

It is October and if you're like us Crafty Witches and Wizard, you're starting to get excited about the ghoulish Halloween parties that we'll be attending throughout the month.

In order to prepare for the festivities, The Leaky Cauldron's Harry Potter Crafts is having a contest! Show us your most excellent party favors, your creepiest party decorations, or your most horrifying (but yummy!) party foods.
The Rules

  1. Entries must be geared towards Death Day or Halloween Parties and be related to the Harry Potterverse. These entries can be interpreted loosely. For example, if you're submitting a party food, tell us about it's magical properties, or why it's a favorite of vampires, or who wrote the original recipe -- It will count (P.S. We also really enjoy receiving instructions and recipes for the site!)
  2. As of October 1st, you may submit your entries to [email protected] Please attach your photos, a description of your craft, and include your name and/or Leaky Lounge user name.
  3. All entries must be received NO LATER than 11:59PM EST on October 31, 2009.
  4. Entries will be judged based on wow-factor and creativity (in both the item and the description). The Crafty Witches (and Wizard!) will award the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners, with 50, 25, and 10 MyLeaky House Points respectively.

A special note from the HP Crafts Manager, SuperJenn...
It took us an indecently long time to announce this folks, and we offer no excuses for it. I'd like to offer my personal apology to each of the entrants for the delay.
As a small token of my appreciation for each of your work I've decided to double the points awards listed in the guidelines above. That means that the first, second, and third place winners will now receive 100, 50, and 20 points, respectively.
This may not change the length of time that you had to wait, but I hope that it goes a little way to make it up to each of you.
Happy Crafting!
