Me and Halloween

I have run Halloween contests for two years now. Halloween is my favorite holiday. Sadly, there wasn't much interest in my weekly contests last year, so I am trying a different format this year.

You can check out the index for how I ran these contests, what other people have submitted, ideas on entries, what I have liked in the past, and my own Halloween writings ;>

Index of Halloweens Past

I'm not having a party, this year, but there are cats and rats like this at Walgreens, and I think I will be doing something like this for the trick-or-treaters...maybe make them take the candy out of the rat's mouth? LOL

This looks cool.
I have come across this post too late to resteem and upvote.
I will link back to it in a post, and keep an eye out for an update post. If you do one, I will definitely resteem and give it my few steem worth.


That went right over my head (the resteem ending after the period); for future reference, the link in the entry post is all that's needed!

thanks, and looking forward to your entry!

You ARE doing one, yes?

looking forward to it! It's not really due until the end of the month (the 29th), but the earlier you get it in, the more enthusiasm you can crank up from your readers

The King of Halloween is back!

Will enter for sure :D :D :D


looking forward to it!

and FYI for everybody...FOOD CREATIONS count towards the contest too...

this was @thekitchenfairy's entry for one contest last year

that picture is cruel and upsetting .i hope no one responds to your competition .sime you cant see that.


well, elizabeth, I am sorry you feel that way

If it makes you feel better, the rat skeleton is plastic ;)

Happy Halloween!!


well maybe i was over reacting it did look real and upsetting though.i apoligise for my reaction and hope your competition goes well.


I understand, and sorry to upset you. I don't now about how our holiday traditions stack up against Scotland, but a fair amount of our Halloween contingent (me included!) goes for the creepy look; it varies from person to person, and a lot of people do go for the cutesy version of Halloween too!

No hard feelings ;)


It made me hungry. What kind of meat is that?


looks like prosciutto or gabba gul (capicola). greasy waxy extremely tasty versions of ham!


Hmmm now I want to make something even more gruesome than that picture. LOL. Not a fan of Social Justice and trying to force their ideal fantasy of world upon everyone else.

That FAKE rat is just so cruel. It's almost like you stuffed and mounted a real rat while making it's flesh somehow not decay.



I dont she she is a SJW, btw

I WISH I had done this, but it was a pic I found on the web...here are others in the same line, if you are thinking about a Halloween party


Sometimes the scariest things are the things in real life!

And sometimes it doesn't matter if they are real or not...if the victim THINKS they are real...


Got to know this just now. I'm writing..
