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!

THE CONTEST

Submit your Halloween costume photos with a brief description to share your costume with your Ramily and be 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 contest submissions from 2013 and 2014!

THE CATEGORIES:

  • Best overall

  • Best couple

  • Best group

  • Scariest

  • Funniest

  • DIY: Most Creative

  • Worst (You won’t get away with zero effort this year!)

THE PRIZES:

We’ve got tons of prizes to award! Anything from gift cards to W Burger Bar, a visit to try your hand at the Real Escape Game, a dinner for two to Hair of the Dog, and some sweet gear from Skullcandy!

HOW TO SUBMIT:

Submit your entry via Twitter/Instagram/Email with the tag #RUScared. Email submissions go to rustudentlife@gmail.com and don’t forget your description and any other info you want us to know!
