BOO! Congrats to the winners of the 2020 Halloween Decorating Contest! There were so many great entries this year! Without further ado, drum roll please! And the winners are...
5 Grand Ghouls: 30,000 Crowns + Megabat Mount goes to:
“Celebrating Halloween with old scratch and his ghost buddies!” - Tyrone Moone
Skinny Stede Ohlen
“This is my Spooky Foggy Shrine Bunkhouse, It's quite the scary place to enjoy your free time with your friends and a bunch of yum bottles and sweet pumpkins freshly cooked in the Spook-Cauldron.” - Skinny Stede Ohlen
Sly Dustin Spinnaker
“Something special about this pirate space is that it's owned by an evil dragon lady.” - Sly Dustin Spinnaker
Brave Amy Jordan
“My Pirate’s bunker with her collection of antiques from all over the spiral!” - Braze Amy Jordan
“This is the classroom of Mr. Darius Von June. He teaches students about everything and anything that involves skeletons and is spooky.” - Darius
5 Honorable Zombies: 10,000 Crowns goes to:
Honest Alexander Templeton
“This is my character, Honest Alexander Templeton. I went for a mysterious look for my pirate, with the mix of the trenchcoat and of course the hoodoo hat. I employed mainly Dragonspyre and Grizzleheim set pieces (which I one day hope to visit in Pirate!) in my background!” - Honest Alexander Templeton
“The background behind it is my pirate (Golden Logan) has risen from the dead in his burial ground to celebrate Pirate's 8th Birthday for the month!” - Golden Logan
Faithful Mariah Nightingale
“As you enter the witchdoctor's bunkhouse, you get a spooky feeling in the dark room. The spooky cauldron boils her pirate blood and her magic can make crystals move from a foot away. In the shadow, she likes to play the piano. She lights up the room with candles and lamps yet lights up your mood by giving you a seat to enjoy some tea. Her face looks at you and she says, ‘I hope that you had a good Halloween.’” - Faithful Mariah Nightingale
Dark Eric Pew
“Dark Eric Pew is a very powerful witchdoctor and his monstrous companions are helping him to get to El Dorado, but right now they are in Eric's dorm which looks like a cave, not just for Halloween but for their cold needs.” - Dark Eric Pew
Unfair Jonathan Thatcher
“You can guess but you can never truly know what creeps and spooks lurk around the corner especially if it's on Halloween, or in this case... a tunnel with a creepy pirate floating in the air and spooky eyes behind it.” - Unfair Jonathan Thatcher
