It's the most wonderful time of the year...Halloween!

Halloween is our favorite time of the year here at Instructables because we love to see the fun, creepy, gorey, and all around creative costumes, props, decorations, and dishes you come up with! Please share how you are celebrating this wonderfully creative time for a chance at a gift card and special Halloween Prize Pack!

This year we have 6 Judges' Prizes with a $500 Gift Card prize for each!

  • Epic Costume - a costume that takes a lot of planning, materials, and/or time to create
  • Easy Costume - a costume that can be completed in a shorter amount of time
  • Kids Costume - a costume for a child
  • Prop - portion of a costume that is held or worn / goes along with a costume, not a complete costume
  • Decoration - should sit on its own and be Halloween-themed
