View Full Version : Costume Contest

What's Halloween without dressing up? I may not have liked THE STRANGERS, but there's no denying the killers in that film knew how to dress. We've got a copy of THE STRANGERS on DVD to giveaway, and all you have to do is post a picture of your Halloween outfit in this thread. In previous years we've had a vote for who was the best dressed, but this year we'll remove any favoritism. Everyone has an equal opportunity to win, just post your picture and you'll be entered in the random draw. Since some people may not be getting dressed up until tonight, this contest will run until midnight tomorrow night, November 1st.

So dress up, have fun, and post your Halloween getup in this thread for a chance to win THE STRANGERS. The Scott Speedman/Liv Tyler film came out on DVD October 21st, and it can be yours if you enter the contest.


Happy Halloween!

Can I enter on behalf of my five-year-old daughter? She loves zombies (mostly due to "Thriller", which she's a big fan of) and she's been wanting to go as a zombie since last year.

All the makeup was done by me, so I guess that helps.

Some may recall me posting in another thread that I was getting married on Halloween, well here is a photo of the wife and I.

That's so awesome rxfiend.

Why stop at one picture? Hit us up with some more and congratulations.

11-01-2008, 07:04 AM
Congrats rxfiend, and that's a cool wedding pic!

I didn't get too many pics of us in costume, others at the reception did. Speaking of my costume, I took the kids out trick or treating and I must have scared the shit out of a lot of young kids. I'd see kids move out of my way, clinching to their parents with their eyes wide open. :lol: I guess since I'm 6'4, it helps sell the Myers illusion.

Those are great! :lol:

That was wicked inspired rhett and your fair lady. I like how she looks all dazed and confused it that last shot.

Where did you get those excellent The Strangers masks kathyjonesgallo? I was able to find a good Masked Man, but the others were all lacking. I like yours a whole lot.

11-01-2008, 09:02 PM

So you know, this is an older pic, but I went as the exact same thing this year in the same clothes. Also, I've never entered this pic in a contest to my knowledge.


11-01-2008, 11:39 PM
mine is older as well but use the costumes more than once.

Since some are entering their kids I'd like to enter my daughter. This is her pregnant zombie outfit that she made herself. The zombie baby is bursting from her stomach. That's Bill Hinzman in the photo with her. This was shot at a local convention this past July.

what's that NOTLD doll in the background??

what's that NOTLD doll in the background??

That is a new figure by a company called Amoktime. It is the first in the NotLD 12" figure line from them. I'll be buying one myself as I'm sure they will someday become a real collector's item.


11-02-2008, 09:36 PM
Past the entry deadline, but I just thought I'd share pics of my Leatherface costume from a party I went to this year...



11-02-2008, 09:49 PM
Nice pics! Well, there's no rush, so I'll extend the deadline another day if folks still haven't uploaded their digital camera pictures. Let's see a few more!

11-03-2008, 01:33 AM

Here's mine...

11-03-2008, 02:10 AM

11-03-2008, 06:30 AM
Here's mine...

Shit marcx, you went all out great jason man!

11-03-2008, 01:27 PM
Great pictures everybody! I'm way too late for the contest, but here's my picture anyway!


I didn't really go as anything special, just had some "dead" makeup on. Actually, my roommate went as Dracula and I had bitemarks on my neck without actually being a vampire, so you could say I was Renfield, his slave. Only better dressed and more handsome. :P

11-03-2008, 04:02 PM
thanx spit

FYI-here's some more of me and the family...


11-04-2008, 01:03 PM

11-04-2008, 03:57 PM
Congrats, and agree awesome costumes this year!! I hope next year to for once to go as a horror character. This year I went as Robin from the 60's Batman show. My girlfriend's mom sewed me the costume from scratch. Unfortunately I can't put up pics as my computer is dead (I am on my work comp. now).

11-13-2008, 06:54 PM
Just got the disc last night. thanks all round. and best of all, no french on the artwork! oh...and now i know where rhett lives. heh heh heh.

11-13-2008, 07:53 PM
Where!? Let's pull some "The Strangers" on his ass! We'll show him how scary a situation like that can be. We'll get your girlfriend, rhett. We'll get her.

Ah shit. I moved on Oct. 31st, and haven't been on HorrorDVDs since then, and I miss this year's costume contest! Blah! Well, at least I'm finally settled into the new place and can start posting here again regularly. Maybe I'll just repost last year's 'Angela', hahahaha.

Your absence was definitely felt. This contest needed some more nudity! :lol:

My girlfriend was Sally from A nightmare before christmas for halloween, Too bad I forgot my camera, I didn't really dress up, I just wore a trench coat I got from Hot Topic and the usual band shirt lol.
