Honor Your Favorite Deceased Infomercial Celebrity This Halloween

One of the inexpensive Halloween costume ideas suggested by readers was to dress in honor of the deceased and beloved infomercial pitchman Billy Mays. (This costume is especially simple if you already have dark hair and a beard.) Today, Billy Mays III announced a Billy Mays costume contest, sponsored and judged by his friends and colleagues at Sullivan Productions.

Showing that they have a sense of humor, zombie-themed costumes are acceptable.

Here’s how to enter:

1. Simply send a photo of your costume to wheresbillymays@gmail.com along with your contact info (email and/or twitter will do)
2. Be tasteful. (Zombies ARE permitted)
3. Project your voice.
4. Have fun.

Deadline for entry is Wednesday, November 4.

Hallow-clean Contest. [Where’s Billy Mays?]
