    Talking CONTEST: Guess the Halloween Costume!^^

    Hi, Duffeteers!

    This contest will run from 7/1 until 7/30. Please do NOT post your guesses before that date. I'm only posting this message now so that folks can start thinking and settle on the ONE idea they really want to guess. ONE entry per person, so think carefully. Also, it's first-come, first-guess. If someone else says "werewolf" or "vampire" before you, you're out of luck and need to guess something different. If you guess something that's already been suggested, you won't get another chance, so be sure to read all your fellow Duffeteers' ideas carefully BEFORE you post your guess!

    Ok, so let's try and guess! It's probably a good idea to look back at old Halloween costumes to get a sense of what may come next...


    2007 Wizard
    Orange/Purple


    2008 Punk'n Treat
    Orange/Green


    2008 Sailoween
    Orange/Purple


    2009 Pumpkin
    Orange/Green


    2009 Masquerade Spirit
    *This one's hard... The dominant color is definitely White.
    But Gold, Red, and Orange all seem like reasonable supporting colors.
    I think if "White/Gold" and "White/Red" were both submitted,
    the winner would be the poster with the earliest timestamp.


    2009 Black Cat
    *This one is also a bit tricky. Someone might say Black/Gray.
    But to my eye, the gray is really not what makes the contrast.
    "Black/Orange" would be reasonable, but still I really think it's
    Black/Red that defines the design. The contrasting bow makes it!
    That choice would beat the others, regardless of time. However,
    if no one said "Black/Red," either of the others would win.


    2010 Pumpkin Patch
    Orange/Green


    2011 Halloween Dream/Pumpkin Harvest 2-purpose costume
    *TOUGH!!!
    I think we could safely settle on Black as the base color.
    Black/Orange seems the most dominant to me, but if
    Black/Purple was posted first, I'd probably give them the win.
    We can't see it in this photo, but the Harvest costume has
    a very clear contrast of Khaki/Orange. If someone guessed
    that, I'd give two prizes due to the special circumstances.^^


    2012 Halloween Parade Beetle
    Orange/Purple
    *I remembered thinking this one would be difficult, but the Black,
    although important, isn't really enough to be a contender with the other two.^^

    Wasn't that fun? Be sure and check out Nana's blog to see Shellie's Halloween costumes, plus nearly all the Duffy costumes ever released in Tokyo! Put your thinking cap on and be ready to post on 7/1!

    Oh, I almost forgot! The prize... The winner will pay 0% gratuity on the costumes for Duffy AND ShellieMay if s/he chooses to WishList them. Just cost and shipping, no other fees. If the winner chooses to select other items, there will be the usual gratuity on all items except Duffy's Halloween Costume (1) and Shellie's Halloween Costume (1), and the service fee will apply. Good luck, everyone!^^

    Oh this is fun! I doubt I will guess correctly but I will guess nonetheless! Good idea for a fun activity, DuffyD and a nice prize!

    Sadly, it's not to be. Duffy is a bat and Shellie is a cat, as announced in the press release yesterday that will already be making the rounds. It's not fair to give a prize when some sleuth may have access to this information. Guess I'll have to think of something else…

    Hm…no photos seem to have leaked yet. How about "Guess the color?" You can guess one color or one 2-color combo for Duffy OR ShellieMay, not both. How's that? Guessing starts at 12:00 AM, Tokyo time, on 7/1. That means "midnight" of 6/30, folks!

    In other news, they seem to have fixed my biggest gripe with the skeletons from last year — namely that it was simply not taken far enough. This year, they're everywhere, and integrated fully into the narrative of the park. I'll post a link and more info later.

    Sounds like fun DuffyD!

    By the way...I hope it's a 2-purpose costume again. The costume from 2011 was sooo cute.

    Re: CONTEST: Guess the Halloween Costume!^^

    Oh my gosh, I was thinking of the costumes this morning before I had read what the official costumes were going to be and I swear I had guessed a bat and a cat. I don't know why, but I think it's because OLC has a pattern of revisiting past Duffy costumes to include ShellieMay, and since the black cat was one of the cutest, I just felt like OLC would revisit that and make ShellieMay a cat suit too. Then, I thought they might not do both of them as cats, and Duffy could be a bat. It's so weird...I also envisioned them using the "animal pals" again in the theme. I think those guys are here to stay. I'm actually really looking forward to seeing the final costume designs. Oh, and I'm game for guessing colors later!

    Well....I certainly wouldn't have guessed bat and cat. I was actually going to guess Duffy as a devil with Shelly May as the angel. Really looking forward to seeing pics of the actual outfits!

    I hope ShellieMay's cat costume is as cute as the Duffy one from a few years ago. I was going to guess skeletons so I guess it's okay that contest is off!

    Remember, posting starts at 12:00 AM 7/1, Tokyo time. Be ready!^^

    And just to clarify a little about strategy: a correct 2-color combo will defeat a single color guess. But it's risky because you might guess one color correctly and be wrong about the other. In that case, no treat for you! 2-color guessing will be an effective strategy for folks who post late (ie, someone already said "your" base color) and folks who suspect a lot of guesses with the same color (like, say, black) and really think you've got a clear vision for the 2-color win. One color is less risky, but a correct 2-color guess is unbeatable.

    Remember, too, that you can only guess Duffy OR ShellieMay, not both. And only one guess per person. This is just so we all get to participate and have fun. There are only really around thirteen basic colors: red, blue, yellow, purple, green, orange, black, white, gray, brown, pink, gold, silver. We can also add light blue, lavender, and light green, I guess; but you can still win without saying "light"…unless someone else correctly guesses with "light." Then they win. Still, only about sixteen colors. I think with no limit everyone won't get a chance. This way, if someone guesses your colors for Duffy, you can just guess ShellieMay instead, or vice-versa.

    Some folks may be planning to watch other people's guesses first, come in late with the refined idea. But remember, it's first-come, first-chance; be careful. While you're plotting, someone could "steal" your guess. Also — and this is VERY IMPORTANT — changes will NOT be allowed. After posting, you MUST NOT edit your post for any reason.. Posts that say "Last edited…" will be immediately disqualified, no exceptions. If the unlikely situation occurs that you post at the same time as someone else, with the same guess, whoever's got the earlier time stamp stays. If the difference in time stamps is one minute or less, the poster with the later time stamp can submit a second guess — but please do NOT alter or edit the first.^^

    Okeydokey, Duffeteers! Good luck! Have fun!

    Oh! Almost forgot! I'm adding the correct 2-color combos for the costumes above, with the dominant color listed first!^^

    FUN! I wanna play, too! ...but I'll resist. Danimated, yours is so original - a green and gold Bat! If you're right, you're gonna have to tell us how you came up with that one. The only thing I can think is Hobgoblin from Spider-Man... Is he green and gold?
