Busted Halo-ween Costume Contest!

Are you dressing up as one of the Avengers this year? Do you make the scariest Dracula or spooky saint on the block? Are your kids the cutest pumpkins at school? Break out your best costume for the first ever Busted Halo-ween Costume Contest!

The tradition of wearing costumes on All Hallow’s Eve (Halloween) has its earliest origins in 19th century Scotland. Children went door to door in guises on that day offering entertainment in exchange for various gifts (similar to our custom of trick-or-treating today). Show us how you celebrate this tradition by sending us photos of your best Halloween costumes!

Here’s what you do:

#1 Tweet us @BustedHalo with a photo of you, friends, or family members (this includes pets!) in Halloween costumes with the hashtag #Haloween2012. Clever captions are a plus! (Note: Make sure your Twitter settings are not marked “private” in order for us to see your photos.)

#2 Send in your photos between now and October 31, 2012. (The contest deadline is 11:59 p.m. October 31, 2012.)

We’ll take a look at your submissions and select winners who will be awarded fun PRIZES!
