Halloween is here again and so are my Halloween costume contest and Halloween art contest, but this time Wintersday is coming early. I've decide not to run a Wintersday contest and instead offer better prizes for the Halloween contests. That's not to say that you can't add a little Wintersday cheer into your entries.
# The Prizes
I'll be offering a choice between two prizes for both contests.
1. A choice of any item(S) off the Gem Store up to 800 2400 gems total (no gems to gold)
2. A Month A three month Humble Monthly Bundle Subscription. Each month you receive a bundle of games worth over $100 in value. You can even gift games you already have or don't want to friends.
# Costume Contest Rules
In this contest you must make an costume using the armor in game (no outfits) to create a costume. It can be Halloween/Wintersday themed, or based on a character from a movie, game, anime, etc. Take a screenshot of your costume and share it here on the forums with a description of what your costume is about. You'll be judged solely on the costume; however, the background can make a better impression off your entry.
# Art Contest
I love to see the creativity of others so for this contest I want to see Guild Wars 2 Halloween themed art. It can be digital art, hand drawn, painted, a 20 ft. sculpture, etc. the choice is yours.
The piece must be gw2 and Halloween/Wintersday themed. To enter for this just submit and image to this thread.
# Other Rules
1. Everybody is eligible and encouraged to enter (even Arenanet Employees).
2. If you don't want the prize but want to participate for the fun of it, just make mention of that in your entry and I will give the rewards to other entries.
3. The Deadline is November 14th.
If the need arises, I may edit this post to clarify things
To start of the Halloween art, Here's a concept of my Asura Rei Seina on a Mad King Glider (can somebody make this a thing next year?)
