Hey everyone, we are super excited about the upcoming spooky season. Just like last year - we’re announcing not one, but two Halloween Costume Contests!


Contest 1: Food and Drink (October 10th)

Come on out to Kallisti Wharf to celebrate the season - City of Heroween style! This is one of our most interesting themes yet - but I think you are up to the challenge. Come dressed as any food or drink that isn't copyrighted (Example: You can be a can of soda, but not a brand named can of soda). You can also come dressed as food related items or people (Chefs & Bakers, cooking equipment, and more!) This can be literal or abstract, the sky is the limit. If you would like an example - here is a past winner who dressed as an egg.



Contest 2: Traditional Halloween Costumes (October 24th)

Want to celebrate the season as a vampire, Frankenstein, werewolf, witch, or one of the other many amazing classic Halloween costume themes? Head on down to Kallisti Wharf the weekend before Halloween to celebrate the season and the communities amazing creative spirit! (Hey, ghost is another good one!) See you guys there, we’ll bring the candy! Below is an example of the winner from last year!

@Andre and @NP123:

Trick or Treating / Hallowe'en is active on the Staging Shard right now.  There were some new changes this year and they wanted to test it before launch.

I've heard rumblings of "Monday" in General Chat on Everlasting, but no one has ever backed up the claim with proof, so it might just be a rumour.

There's also this:  https://forums.homecomingservers.com/topic/22626-community-project-homecoming-team-appreciation-trick-or-treating/

Rest assured, it will be worth the wait though.

There were some really great costumes and players were so creative, it was difficult to choose!
