SDCC 2013: AS Costume Contest! Win $1K and A Trip to Williams Street!
San Diego Comic Con is coming. It kicks off July 18th specifically, and Adult Swim will be there, like they are every year. They’ll have a booth, some panels and signings, a fun house in a parking lot, and some free rides to the con like they do every year for SDCC and sometimes NYCC. But, for most of that stuff, there’s no info yet. What is there info for? Well…
Adult Swim is holding a costume contest this year! Dress yourself up all pretty as your favorite characters from AS originals, and Toonami shows, take a picture, and send it to AS either via the contest page, Instagram, or Facebook. Since you’re uploading, and since the contest is going on NOW, it seems like anyone can do it, even if they’re not going to SDCC. Unless you’re in New Hampshire. Them’s the rules. If you’re interested in the contest you should read the rules, by the way.
Here’s the really basic guidelines for the contest:
One person per photo. No group shots.
Follow the rules. Including, but not limited to No illegal activity, no sexually explicit material, no use of intoxicants and no third party logos.

Now, I bet you’re wondering, “what do I get when I win?” Well, first off, that’s pretty brave of you, saying “when”. I like that confidence. Second, you’ll win yourself $1000 and a trip to Williams Street. You’ll get some cash, and then head to Atlanta to visit that special building that not many people get to visit. Check out all the cook knick-knacks, statues, games, art. People, too.
The contest opened yesterday at like 9AM and closes at 11:59:59 PM on July 28th. Anyone in the country and DC is eligible unless they’re from New Hampshire, and you have to be 18 and up to enter. All the legal jargon is over on the official contest page.
So, go forth, click these words, figure your plan out, get your costume together, take a photo, and send it in to Adult Swim for your chance to get some money and a trip to Williams Street.
And if you’re headed to SDCC, get yourself set for the con. All the info so far is on their SDCC site, which includes the contest. Keep at least one eye here on Adult Swim Central, and our Twitter. We’ll let you know once more extensive SDCC info is available (same with NYCC whenever that information becomes available).
