We’re inviting fans at home to create a costume inspired by the creepy dolls in our collection. Pageant participants can submit a short video of themselves dressed as a creepy doll walking the runway. Staff will review the pageant entry videos and pick a winner. The prize is a one-of-a-kind t-shirt featuring their new title: I am the 2020 Creepy Doll. Videos of the Pageant finalists and winner will be shown at the cocktail party with spooky music as a backdrop. Creepy Doll Costume Pageant videos must be submitted by October 28. Information at https://creepydolls.olmstedhistory.com/pageant-info.

Because of Covid-19, the History Center is inviting fans and followers to join in crowning the winning Creepy Doll virtually on Halloween night from 6pm - 8pm. To help the dolls (and humans) celebrate, a live band will begin playing scary music as each doll is honored with its own special cocktail (they are all winners, creepy in their own, special way). Viewers can join in by making the drink at home and toasting each doll. But it’s the winning doll’s evening to reign supreme. “What do you like most about yourself?” “Where do you see yourself in 10 years?” The winning doll will answer these questions and more via chat. But Halloween evening holds even more suspense: the winner of the Creepy Doll Costume Pageant will be announced. Tickets at https://creepydolls.olmstedhistory.com/purchase-ticket
