Well, the NY Diamond Boutique, located at 71-46 Austin St. in Forest Hills, is taking submissions from now until Sunday, November 5, for the best costumes of the year.
“We’ve noticed that Austin Street is the center of the universe when it comes to kids and their parents trick-or-treating together,” said store manager Michael Jaye. “We wanted to do something that would involve both kids and adults. What better holiday than Halloween?”
Jaye said the contest is open to both children and adults, and while he expects to see an abundance of entries, he says the submissions for the first annual Austin Street Halloween Costume Competition should be imaginative.
“If they’re going to be a witch, then they’d better be a very creative witch,” he said.
The top 10 runners up will receive $100 gift cards, while the top three will receive jewelry packages.
Contestants can submit photos of their costumes at www.NYDiamondBotique.com.
