Something wicked to Instructables comes!

Costumes and candy and skeletons, oh my! Halloween has finally come back around and we are raring to go! Epic costumes, eerie decorations, disturbing desserts, whatever it is you like to make to help celebrate Halloween, share it here!

We’re changing things up a little bit this year. Instead of spreading things out, we’ve combined our Halloween competitions into one big contest! There will be a grand prize from Raise3D for the Best Overall Project and three first prize winners for the Best Costume/Prop*, Decoration, and Food. There will also be a fun judges’ prize from Petcube for the Best Pet Costume!

As with our previous Halloween Contests, you can enter anything you have posted since the last contest ended.

We Witch You A Maker-y Halloween!

*A prop is something that is held/part of your costume and a decoration is something that would be part of your Halloween decor.

The Halloween Contest 2017 is closed.
