I’ve had some pretty conventional costumes for halloween growing up. The obligatory pumpkin as a baby, the typical vampire as an 8 year old, Ghostbusters at SOME point in the '90s…I can’t remember. Usually, I would wait a day before Halloween and then figure out what I would want to have for a costume. Clearly, wasn’t very prepared and didn’t have much of a strategy. This is probably why I didn’t win any contests at parties.

Having a conventional website is a lot like having a bad costume.


Cuddledown, a Maine company known for their quality bedding, has launched their “Wicked Pathetic Pillow” contest at The contest is open to the public and runs through October 31.

To enter, people just need to post a photo including their most “pathetic” pillow and a creative description of why they deserve a new one. Pillow entries can be any style, shape, size or type! The public can vote on the entries (whether they’ve entered the contest or not), then the votes will be tallied, and the winner will be chosen from the finalists and announced on November 3. The prize is a luxury pillow package worth more than $500 – two standard Batiste 800 Fill Power European White Goose Down Pillows by Cuddledown plus two standard 100% Silk Pillow Protectors by Cuddledown, and two Standard Silk Pillowcases by NK Home.
