Escape from Hat Costume Contest

Halloween approaches on the dark wings of the Dimmer-Dammer! Kids who dress as characters from Escape from Hat should submit photographic evidence to Brian.

The top three entries will receive a copy of the book, signed by both author and illustrator. We’ll throw in a collectible letterpress print as well, designed, signed, and numbered in Scotland. We’ll even post your triumph on Facebook for good measure.

Leek, Millikin, Cecil, or Morel? Hamlin, Gordon, or Kadogo, King of the Pigmies? Do you dare, like Imbrolio, to don a magic hat yourself? The choice is yours, but the deadline is not. All entries are due November 1st, no later than midnight.

And as the mysterious gentleman would say, “Good luck.”
