#RUScared Halloween Costume Contest 2016

Every year, we get dressed up in our most creative costumes and remember what it was like to really be a kid again. When it wasn’t socially acceptable anymore to continue trick-or-treating, we didn’t ditch the costumes but instead moved them to the parties. The competition steps up a notch as we try to out-do ourselves and our friends for best costume of the weekend. So, join the competition and share your costumes with us for a chance at some wicked prizes!



Submit your entry via Twitter, Instagram or Email with the hashtag #RUScared. Email submissions go to Feel free to include a short description of your costume if you thinks there’s something special we need to know. Use #RUScared to be included in our Facebook album as well.

Need some ideas? Check out our 2015 submissions, 2014 submissions and 2013 submissions.

The deadline to submit to be considered in the contest is Wednesday, November 2nd.

Happy Halloween!!
