Dolus aut Dulce?


Ian Hockberg and his family dressed
as deities and demigods.
We at Bolchazy-Carducci are happy to announce our third annual Halloween costume contest: Dolus aut Dulce? It was so nice seeing all the wonderful costumes from last year's participants, such as the snake-haired Medusa, deities and demigods, and Hannibal cosutmes from last year's winners. So if you plan on sporting a toga with some laurels, going for the whole hoplite, or fashioning your own set of wax wings, we urge you to take a picture of your classics-themed costume and send it to us.

Decorating her hair up with snakes, Lindsey Morse,
completed her change into Ms. Medusa.
Like last year, all we need from you is a photo of you in a classics-themed costume. Send it to us via Twitter to @BCPublishers, using the hash tag #BCPub. Do this, and you automatically make yourself eligible for one of three prizes! One photo will be accepted per Twitter account. If multiple people are in one picture all wearing classics costumes, the prize would only go to the owner of the account that tweeted the picture. If by request the contestants ask that another member of the picture stand as the contestant, one that is not the Twitter account member, or not a Twitter member at all, we will accept that as well.

Winston Durand went all out
for his Hannibal costume.
Teachers, tell your students; students, tell your teachers. Tell all of your friends! No need to wait until October 31 to send a picture. We will start accepting photos this week and will continue to accept pictures until 11:59 PM CT on Tuesday, November 7th. Even if it is not your Halloween costume, so long as you have a photo featuring a classics-themed costume, we'll accept it!
