Dolus aut Dulce 2018


Last year's winner, Vincent Marcellino aka Vincentius,
as Imperator Marcellinus.

The days are growing shorter and there’s a chill in the air, which means it’s time for Bolchazy-Carducci’s annual Halloween costume contest, Dolus aut Dulce! We love seeing our participants’ creativity in making classics-related costumes and can’t wait to see what’s in store this year. Whether you are someone who happens to have spent time wrapped in the quintessential sheet-toga (and who among us hasn’t) or you take pleasure in crafting elaborate themed costumes, please send us your photos!

To enter our classics costume contest, all you need to do is follow @BCPublishers on Twitter and then tweet us your costume photo using the hashtag #BCPub. There are two entry categories, individual and group costume. The winner in each category will receive a $50 book credit. Once the contest has ended, the Bolchazy editorial board will judge all submissions and award one prize per category based on the following criteria: creativity, quality, and connection to classics. One entry per Twitter account, please. For group contest submissions, the prize will go to the owner of the Twitter account who submitted the photo unless otherwise specified.

No need to wait until October 31st to send a picture. And, you don’t have to strictly limit yourself to Halloween pictures—if you have a photo of yourself dressed in classical costume for a non-Halloween-related reason, feel free to submit it! We will start accepting photos this week and will continue to accept pictures until 11:59 PM CT on Wednesday, November 7th.
