Halloween costume competition

Ghostly and ghoulish greetings to all!

As the witching hour approaches we’ve noticed a few of you adventurous types talking about dressing up and such like. And what with the VERY exciting news of a brand new album Seventh Tree, we’ve come up with a lovely way for us all to celebrate together.

We would love to see your Halloween costumes, especially any inspired by Seventh Tree or the new picture.

Oh, and there’s a prize. A SIGNED copy of the very same BRAND NEW PICTURE OF ALISON!!!!!! (Eagle eyed Deers in the UK may have noticed this pix alongside a couple of lines on the album in this week’s Music Week).

If you would like to take part simply email simply email your pixs to <
This competition is open to everyone.
The winner will be notified in due course.

Have fun Deers

It's a really nice shot, it looks like it could be from the forties then calendar pulls you back to a more recent time

Mmm the sign combined with the calender made me think of a confectionery. Good thing I didn't wander in there looking for candy.

He reminds me of the type of men drawn in a 30's comic strip published on the back of a newspaper by an artist called Di Vito. Casually, the girls he did kinda looked like you, Alison...
By the way, I've made a digital drawing that I would like to send to you, but your manager's email address is not working and I dont know where to send it.
