Blobfest Tinfoil Hat Competition » The Colonial Theatre

Tinfoil Hat Competition

The original paranormal personal protection equipment takes center stage this year during intermission at the Costume Contest! Come dressed to impress with your aluminum auroles.

How it works:

  • Your hat’s exterior must be made of tinfoil, but other materials can be utilized inside for structure.
  • Above all, your tinfoil hat must be wearable. They don’t keep out extraterrestrial mind readers if they’re not sitting on your head.
  • E-mail a photo of yourself (humanoid lifeforms only, please) wearing your hat to Drew at by July 1. Include the following information: Your First and Last Name, a clever and memorable title for your tinfoil hat, and a description of its various intangible properties or features.
  • Staff will select ten finalists from all applicants. Finalists must attend the Saturday Street Fair on July 9 in order to be judged with other entrants. (Additional instruction will be provided to you if you are a finalist.) You will be required to wear your tinfoil hat for judging.
  • Our judges will call all Tinfoil Hat Competitors to the stage during the Costume Contest intermission to model their inventions. Judging will occur during the Costume Contest on stage using our patented Applause-O-Meter.

Judging & Awards:

Contestants will be judged based on functionality, originality, construction, and overall presentation/coordination with your outfit by a panel that includes Ms. Blobfest Universe and the Costume Contest sponsor. The lucky winner receives complimentary cocktails (must be 21 or older) and a pair of tickets to the Sunday double feature.

Judging occurs during the Streetfair on Saturday, July 9 at the Main Street stage during the Costume Contest intermission.
