Halloween Contest

Halloween is our favorite holiday! It's an excuse to make cat costumes and edible eyeballs, carve jack-o-lanterns, and build a model guillotine or motion-activated bats. It's the one holiday where everyone agrees that doing it yourself is best, so what are YOU making, baking, or creating to celebrate? The world needs to know!

This year we've teamed up with the folks at SINGER, Dremel, Ponoko, Monkeylectric, and Photojojo to bring you the best Halloween contest ever. Show us what delightfully frightful things you can make, and win the tools to create something even more amazing! Every winner will also receive the Instructables Prize Pack: a one-year Pro membership, and an Instructables Robot t-shirt, patch, and stickers.

*You do not have to choose a category. Our judges will select the best fit among the Costume, Gadgets & Gizmos, Decorations, Food, Green, and Slideshow categories.
*Every Halloween-themed Instructable posted since November 10, 2008 is eligible. Just click here enter your previously-published project.
*Multiple entries are allowed. Limit to one prize per entrant.

So get to it! Put your imagination and skills to good use making the world creepier place. We can't wait to see what you'll make!
