Voting in the BLOXtober Costume Contest lasts through the end of the weekend — 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on Sunday, to be exact. If you’re a costume contest entrant, we have a pro-tip to help you get noticed in the veritable sea of entrants: check your email (i.e., the address you provided when you entered the contest). We sent a message — including a link to your very own costume — to everyone who participated.

Click the link and it’ll open your entry, along with Vote, Like, and Tweet buttons (if you’re on Facebook and Twitter, respectively) you can use to get your friends to vote for you! People who look at your link will also see your costume as the very first image in the gallery. Moral of the story: if you want votes, make sure to share your entry link.

  • Top three (chosen by our judges): valuable virtual item + integration in The Witching Hour
  • Top five (chosen by our judges): valuable virtual item
  • Top 500 (based on votes): virtual item

Anyone who wears one of the top three costumes into The Witching Hour after integration (which will happen closer to the actual Halloween holiday) will receive yet-to-be-announced benefits!
