 Thumb up
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

- 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!
