Annual Halloween Costume Contest: #RUScared

Every year, we get dressed in our most creative costumes and remember what it was like to really be a kid: getting excited to stay out after dark, when the creatures come out to play, getting handed free candy. 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 Halloween costume photos with a brief description to share your costume with your Ramily and beĀ featured in our Facebook album. Submitting a description is important because it’s your chance to show why your costume is creative, or maybe explain if it’s a little more obscure than your average cat-ears get-up. Need some ideas? Check out our previous contestĀ submissions from 2013 and 2014!
