We'd like to extend a huge thank-you to all the Pirates that participated in this contest!

Below we've listed Twitter posts where you can find all the honorable mentions. After that, we've listed the grand prize winners that walked away with a HooDoo Bundle + 20,000 Crowns each.



Clever Jose Jackson for the Heroic theme!

BOO! Get the cobwebs out of the attic and candy out of the cupboards, because it's time to celebrate Halloween in spooky style! Put your decorating skills to the test in our new Halloween Costume & Decorating Contest! This contest is for both the Wizard101 and Pirate101 communities.

Share your ghoulish bunkhouse creations as instructed below throughout the contest period. You’ll get a chance to win some great prizes, plus receive tons of design tips from your fellow players. We’ll even be featuring contest winners this October 27th on KI Live! Since the show is just before Halloween, we may even have a few of our developers transform into nightmarish creatures for it.

With 60k Crowns, the Spooky Carnival Bundle (W101), and the Hoodo Bundle (P101) up for grabs, this contest is filled to the brim with prizes!
