It’s that time of the year again: Halloween is approaching, and that means it’s time for the PHB’s annual Halloween costume competition! Now for the 6th year in a row, you can enter your best creepy costume and hope to win a spot on the PHB’s Costumes page (plus, they’ll be featured on the PHB’s front page when the winners are announced on Halloween (October 31, when the contest ends).
This year, because of our
(upcoming) recently achieved milestone of 14 million blog hits (as of October 16), we’ll be showcasing fourteen of our favorites as winners! Sound awesome yet?
Before you rush out to put together your masterpiece, please keep these rules in mind:
- IDEAS: Be original! We like to see that you’ve put effort into creating something spooky yet fashionable for the season, so simply copying (as opposed to mixing and matching) will probably hurt your chances. There are some great costume parts at the ghoul gathering from the end of the Haunted House quest from the Store, as well as the collection of recently-made-free costumes in the Store, but be creative and search in other places too!
- DON’T CHANGE: Keep your costume intact until after the winners are announced. If you change your costume back, we may not get to see your spooktacular entry! If you don’t want to keep the costume on your main account, you can create a new one and post that instead.
- ENTERING: After you’ve created your costume, here’s how you should post your entry: go to the Avatar Studio, type in your username, click Load, click on the Link to highlight it, right-click and choose Copy, go to the comments section on this post, right-click and choose Paste, type in your comment and submit so we can view your costume by clicking the link! Name your costume and post the username if you want. If you are having problems with the Avatar Studio, just post the username so we can check it. You may submit as many different entries as you like, but you can only win a maximum of one time (out of the 14 winners to be chosen).
(Protip: For inspiration, past winners can be viewed on the Costumes page!)
