HALLOWEEN COMPETITION: Win An Xbox 360 & Gears of War 3!

Geeky exhibitionists rejoice! The one day of the year where everyone who knows best gets all dressed up in some outlandish costume will come with added incentive as this year. We're going to have a costume contest, peeps, and the lucky winner will received an 250GB Xbox 360 S with Gears of War 3 thrown in for good measure!

It's silly season: triple-A games are dropping onto the shelves every single week, everything gone utterly bonkers and all of the money we'd saved on deals over the last few months has been thrown to the wind because there are simply too many awesome games out there to play!

But you need something to play those games on and so, with Halloween just around the corner...it's competition time, baby! We've not run a large competition in a little while so here's the deal. We want you, yes you, to dust off your imagination caps and get cracking on some awesome videogame related costumes for this year's fright night.

Want a brand-spanking new Xbox 360? Follow the simple steps below:

  1. Suit up! We're looking for the best videogame-related costume, so get cracking!
  2. Print out this competition banner as proof of entry to include in the picture.
  3. Take a picture (or get someone else to take one of you).
  4. Email the pic to us!

There'll be no random prize draws for this one, no number-crunching machine, this one's down to us. We want to see imagination, creativity, originality, Hell, if you can get a terrible pun in there too, we're all for that! Have a think, have some fun, and see what you can come up with. We'll have a gallery page here onsite for you to check out what you're up against.

House Rules:

  • UK entrants only
  • One entry per household
  • Must include the competition banner in your pic as proof of timeliness (We want it held  up, please, NOT photoshopped in!)
  • Must be videogame related
  • Ends 1st November 2011

Good luck!

We have indeed!

Do you have anything less involved? Like just sending an email? If its as crap and as corrupt at the HUKD photo one its a waste of time.

I'm not getting it, do you want us to dress up in a costume or send you a picture of a costume we think is ideal for halloween? Where am I supposed to find a videogame costume without breaking the bank?

@wozers: There'll be other 'less involved' competitions coming in November (details on that tomorrow). This one is what it is.

@samighessen: It's a costume competition at Halloween, it's all about dressing up. There are literally hundreds of VG costumes to be had without spending any money at all. Chances are if you have a costume already, you can probably find a gaming character to match.

another stupid comp where you need to prove it's you

sarahdazjc  Oct. 31, 2011 at 13:34

How is that making it a bad competition? the fact you need to prove it is infact you in the photo means that you cut out cheats who enter using someone elses pic or a pic from years ago..

When's the gallery going to be up? I thought that was going to be up and as the entries came in we'd be able to see?
