It’s October and that means summer is over and fall is here, and that means Halloween is just around the corner. We’re hoping you’ll celebrate our love of the holiday by entering the Annual Major Spoilers Costume Contest.

This is our seventh year sponsoring the contest, and we know YOU are going to make it even better than last year!

We want you, yes you, to send us pictures of your bad self dressed up as your favorite hero, villain, side-kick – really any comic book/pop culture character. The best costume will not only be hailed as the Grand Prize Winner in Major Spoilers’ 2013 Costume Contest, you’ll also get an awesome prize.

Take the jump for the info!

We’ve done it for two years in a row, why not make it three!? Yes, we are giving away an iPad Mini to the grand prize winner!*




We know people love to win prizes, so this year we have a prize for the runner up.


Arguably the most eagerly awaited DC Universe multipack, this Legion of Super Heroes set features a dramatic dozen of your favorite characters. Set includes Brainiac 5, Chameleon Boy, Colossal Boy, Cosmic Boy, Karate Kid, Lighting Lad, Matter Eater Lad, Saturn Girl, Superboy, Timber Wolf, Ultra Boy, and Wildfire.

You Want More!? Okay… We’ll also have a nice something or other for the third place winner.

Send four to five pictures of yourself in your costume (and one sans costume – you must have an out of costume picture of yourself) to us by midnight CST on October 31, 2013. Make sure you include your name, address, and the character you are supposed to be (please, no made up characters). The pictures for the entry MUST have been taken in the last 24 months. The Major Spoilers crew, will narrow the list to five contestants, and readers will then vote on their favorite. The winner will be announced in the second week in November 2013.

Pictures should be .JPG files, no smaller than 650 pixels wide. Please make sure you label your pictures with your name and character. Example – Schleicher_Batman01.jpg.
