Three days in a row of cool fall-like weather, reminded me it is time to open the 2nd Annual Major Spoilers Costume Contest!  We want you to help us celebrate the upcoming Halloween holiday by having you – yes you – send up pictures of your bad self dressed up as your favorite comic book hero (or villain or side-kick, you get the idea). The best costume will not only be hailed as the Grand Prize Winner in Major Spoilers’ Costume Contest you’ll also win the Hellboy Animated Statue and a copy of the Hellboy Library Edition Vol 1: Seed of Destruction.


Here’s what you have to do:
Send three to four pictures (different poses/angles) of yourself in your favorite superhero costume (plus one sans costume) to us by October 25, 2008. Make sure you include your name, address, and the character you are supposed to be. The Major Spoilers crew, will narrow the list to five contestants (oh lord, let us have more than five entries), and readers will then vote on their favorite. The winner will then be announced October 31st.

  1. Ohhh…. gosh. Who am I gonna be? I really really want to be someone super cool….. I’m betting you guys’ll get approximately 40 joker costumes so I think I’ll pass on him.

  2. that’s cool. I think I’m gonna try my hand at the Riddler. I always wanted an excuse to go for the character and this finally gives it to me. Thrift stores are gonna be my best friends for a while.

  3. Lifesaglitch: Yes, international, but if you win, you have to pay any and all import taxes.

    Hermit: Star Wars characters count (they are in comics)

    I’m surprised there weren’t any Marvel entries last year – guess Major Spoilers readers prefer DC… :D

  4. Wish I could dress up as my favorite character but I think there are laws against big fat guys dressing up as Starfire. At least in some states of Australia

  5. The Flying Belgian on

    I’ll show my halloween costume for this year: My own Green Lantern costume. It’s not like Jordan’s, or Stewart’s, but my own, customized one.

  6. it suck, my costume won’t be 100% accurate. i had to change the color of some pieces, like the gloves. i don’t have time to look for what i need exactly.

    meh, my costume still rocks. pictures soon

  7. Sorry, Slappy, the Catwoman is spoken for.

    I decided not to enter this year – I think I’d feel bad if I won, and probably worse if I lost. You may still wind up seeing me in an entry, since I posed with my fella in his Batman costume. Little more risque than the Catwoman, but definitely sweated less. ;)

  8. crap, time is running short. i don’t know if i’ll make the deadline. to much accessories to built and buy, so little time.
