Costume ContestBLOXtober continues today with the launch of a costume contest! This is your chance to piece together a creative Halloween costume for your character and, using the new outfits feature, enter it to win a yet-to-be-announced virtual item. While we’re not revealing what the prize is just yet, we will say that the top three costumes will be integrated into our Halloween game, which launches later this week, with a mid-event update. Anyone who wears that costume into the game will receive a useful item.

Here’s how it works.

  1. Dress your character in a costume and save it as an outfit
  2. Using the dropdown gear next to the outfit, click “Download as image” and save the image to your computer (important: do not change the name of the file)
  3. Go to the contest site, enter the required information and upload the image you just saved

One piece of information we need is your User URL. You can find this by visiting your own Profile page and copying the link in the upper-left-hand corner, beneath the words “Your Profile”. It will look something like http://www.roblox.com/User.aspx?ID=12345678.

You can browse the catalog and your existing inventory for assets, then build your costume and outfit on the Character page. There are no strict requirements as to what constitutes a costume, but we are looking for creativity, boldness and something you don’t see everyday — something that screams Halloween.

Keep in mind that dressing in limited, prohibitively expensive and off-sale items will reduce your chances of being one of the top-three winners. Other players ultimately need to be able to obtain the elements of your costume to wear into the Halloween game!

You can enter one outfit in the contest. The deadline to submit is Thursday, October 17th at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time. There will be a voting period over the coming weekend, and a total of five winners will ultimately be determined by a panel of ROBLOX judges early next week.

Good luck, and may the most creative costumes win!
