We’re getting a late start this year, but better late than never – It’s the 2009 Major Spoilers Costume Contest!  We want you to help us celebrate the upcoming Halloween holiday by having you – yes you – send us 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 your choice of a superhero wall graphic from Fat Head (www.fathead.com).

We’ve got a couple of these on the walls of the Major Spoilers HQ, and they turn a boring room into a “super” one.

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.

Send your pictures to contest@majorspoilers.com

Last year, we had a plethora of entrants. Let’s make this year even better than the last!  Get your entries in early!

    My purple pinstripe pants are at the cleaners, or else we’d let Stephen go as the Kingpin.

        Alright there, “Chuck”, who has to dress as Duo-Damsel?

          I nominate you. Make sure you get the hair length correct.

            Wellll…I have been working out. I wonder if it shows in my girlish figure?

            But who will play the “other” me? Questions-questions.

            Is Victoria eligible to enter this contest?

            • September 21, 2009 at 1:02 pm — Reply

              As a member of the Major Spoilers family, she is not eligible.

                That is good for our sake at least. She could probably win just by showing up. … not that she does much around here. heh

                But you definitely have an experienced judge on your team. … Too experienced to believe I resemble Duo-Damsel. Ha!

                  I meant Victoria doesn’t show up as often here, not that she doesn’t *do* anything. That last post read weird to me.

                  … where’s the Edit button on this thing?? lol

    I might give this a go. Shameless self promotion on my behalf rocks!

    If Victoria was eligible for this contest, then we’d all lose and win at the same time. ;)

    considering how insane some of the contests get in this contests, I’d be lucky if I get anywhere near the so-so costumes. But I’m entering anyway for S&G’s

      I think I’d rather do Matter-Eater Lad circa Adventure 360, where he was sidelined after eating his way out of the Starlag.

      Look it up. :)

    what is a sans costume?

    • September 27, 2009 at 10:12 pm — Reply

      “Sans” from the French, without.

      He means a picture of you in street clothes along with your costumed awesomeness.

    I’d be interested in seeing all the entries once the contest is over, if only to do the standard Intardweb posting of “Person X was robbed!!! :-P
