The scariest night of the year is drawing nigh, and a bunch of us will spend the night trick or treating or feasting it up at costumed parties. Don't let all that costuming work go to waste, we really want to see your Halloween costumes!

Post a picture of your or your kids' kick-ass or adorably amateurish Halloween outfit here, get thumbed like the mad thumbmagnet you are, and rake in the prizes!

Other than the respect of your peers, there might be special prizes for boardgame, roleplay game and videogame inspired costumes, you'll have to wait and see

First prize: 75
Second prize: 50
Third prize: 25

If you have a picture from last year or from a friend that you are dying to show, add it in the comments!

Don't know what you're doing for Halloween yet? Here's some Geeky inspriationals

Edit:
- Moved the latest pictures up a bit so they too can get some time in the spotlight!
- It's time to find a cut-off date for this contest: Can everyone have their pictures up before Monday the 5th of November? That should allow for plenty of time to get the last weekend party pictures up!

The Winners!

Wow, what a crazy amount of costumes, toddlers and props you guys came up with just for the occasion! I hope everyone had fun watching the amazing costume parade, but now it's time to announce the winners!



d10-1st place goes to Josh Jennings' creepy Zipperhead!
d10-2st place goes to Daniel B's supercute Incredibles family!
d10-3 rd place goes to I am happy's adorable crime fighting duo!

Well deserved, I say! I'll take all these crimefighters to take on the big bad Zipperhead

VGG/BGG Winners

We were hoping to see some 'Geek related costumes here and you did not dissappoint! Which means I also get to hand out some prizes for the best videogame-related and boardgame-related costume!



Kudos and 25 bag to Renae Radford's Ezio Auditore and Brian Clymer's Candyland Couple!

You guys!

Thanks for submitting your costume, we hope you all had fun! I've heard some ghostly rumors that you too might get something to commemorate your dressing up and looking silly. whistle

Oh, and by the way... If you were hoping for some bag to sweeten your BGG bankaccount, may I remind you there's still plenty of it to earn on Videogamegeek? Come check us out! laugh

My daughter Athena is little red riding hood. She asked me to be a nice wolf so I improvised and in 20 min made the ears and found everything else. Granny wolf was born.






I was also an 80s glam metal band member and something else this season but this was the best for me.

I was #BaldForBieber

For those who don't know what this is about there was a 4chan hoax last week where they faked a tweet from bieber and confirmation from Entertainment Weekly (I think, some celebrity rag anyway) that Bieber had cancer and a bunch of 14-year-old-girls evidently shaved their heads and took pictures like this one.

My avatar is a past costume where I was Mr. T (I actually did shave my head for that one - this one is just a bald cap).

After we went out for the first round of Trick or Treating my 19 year old daughter and her boyfriend joined us. He was a Richard Simmons like Zombie and she was a Zombie Workout Freak from the 80's so we called ourselves the Crazy 80's Meet the Southern Belle and Gentleman. YES they do know that 19 is a little TOO old for Trick or Treating





It was a fun time and we had a blast.

My wife made our middle kid a fantastic dinosaur outfit. No word what his first evolutionary step of choice would be, but I suspect it would be the opposable thumbs for unwrapping Reese's.

Sadly, the status of dinosaurs as endangered species appears to be doing nothing to deter our other little geeks.

Is it Mr. Green? In the Billiard Room? With Rope?

So here is my Halloween Costume nod to board gaming. I wanted to do something board game related that wouldn't get me too many blank stares (didn't work!).

Unfortunately the jacket, which is actually green, didn't come out very green in the photo.




And for comparison purposes, here are the cards from the 1972 version of Clue.
