It’s a Pandemic Halloween with Ding Dong Dress-Up!

We’re celebrating the eBook release of Ding Dong Dress-Up with a special Pandemic Halloween contest inspired by the events in the story. Scratch that costume making itch in the safety of your own home for a chance to win cool prizes, including a signed copy of The World of Wigcraft, or dice sets from Cloudborne Mercantile!

Contest is open to all ages, and the deadline to submit entries is 12 Midnight PST on October 31st. Winner will be announced on November 5th.

Contest Rules

Instead of human models, contestants will be making a costume for any fruit or vegetable. Any materials may be used, and multiple “models” can be included in the photo.

  1. Only fruit and vegetable models can appear in the photo. No human or animal body parts can be visible.
  2. “No Costume = No Costume”: The model must be wearing something in order to be considered for the contest. (Paint or glitter does count as “something”.)
  3. Contestants can submit multiple entries, but may only win one prize per household.
  4. Photo editing (photoshop) is allowed, and models can be superimposed into scenes or backdrops.

Post your images to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with the hashtag #DingDongDressup, and send a link to The Ulysses Project Facebook Page.

100% of eBook royalties from Ding Dong Dress-Up support The Trevor Project: the premier organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ teens and young adults. Learn more at
