"Retro Recast" Twitter Contest Seeks Entrants!

Many of you asked for another chance to stretch your punny imaginations after our Strike a Prose Contest on Twitter. Well, have we got a ‘tweet’ for you! (Ba-dun-tss!) Join us in playing Retro Recast, the second installment of our ever-popular wordplay game.

The rules are simple: Take your favorite retro celebrities, cast them into modern shows or movies, then share your cleverest combinations of the two! For example: Take “Elizabeth Taylor,” plus “Lord of the Rings,” and you get “Elizabeth Taylord of the Rings!” Once you have your win-worthy words, tweet them with the hashtags #retrorecast and #modcloth — no need to send them to @ModCloth!

So get those whimsy wheels in your head turning  because we’re awarding a $50 gift certificate to each of our three fave entries. But, before you tweet, check the deets:

  • You must follow @ModCloth on Twitter to participate.
  • Contest begins September 7th. You must tweet between 9 a.m. PT 9/7 and 9 p.m. 9/8 to be entered. No ifs, buts, or blog comments will count! 🙂
  • Again, no need to tweet @ModCloth — just make sure to include the hashtags #retrorecast and #modcloth in your entry.
  • Please only tweet from one account. You can submit multiple entries from your account.
  • Individuals are only able to win once.
  • By entering, you cross your heart that your phrase came from your mind alone! We realize that, since great minds think alike, there’s a chance that some phrases may be repeated. If we love a phrase that happens to have a duplicate, we will select the first person to enter it as a winner.
  • On 9/9, we will announce the three winners on our blog.

We can’t wait to see your cleverest tweets!

    when you say “retro” do you mean actors and actresses who’ve moved on? or who were most notable before 1990?
