After browsing photos of the great costumes at this year’s New York Comic Con – visited by our very own Corey “Tolkien Professor” Olsen – and with an eye towards the upcoming Halloween holiday, we thought the Institute should get into the spirit!
From now until November 5th, the Institute is asking current students, prospective scholars and other visitors to submit pictures of their best myth and fantasy attire to the Mythgard fan page Wall on Facebook. Entries will be judged on historical/canonical accuracy as well as creativity and presentation, so make sure the photo itself is as stunning as the costume!
One lucky winner will receive free tuition to audit (or $150 off the cost of enrolling as an M.A. student in) one of this Spring’s exciting new courses on Harry Potter or C.S. Lewis and Tolkien. Professor Olsen will choose the winning photo and make the announcement on our Facebook page on November 6th.
Remember: keep it tasteful and please only submit one photo when entering the contest – we have a feeling the Wall might get rather full with so many talented folks out there.
