Okay, y'all, here are the guidelines for the 2013 Breakdown Costume Contest. - You need to post a photo in this thread by 11:59 PM, your time zone, on Halloween - October 31st. (For those of you new to my contests, what this means in practice is that you need to have it posted to the thread before I get to work on November 1st.) - If you are planning to participate in our Twitch live stream on Halloween, you must have your photo posted by 11:00 AM PDT/2:00 PM EDT/7:00 PM London/20:00 CEST, along with your Twitch handle. (You must be present in the chat during the stream to win: http://www.twitch.tv/xboxlivearcade) I guarantee that three of the Breakdown codes given away during the stream will be reserved for costume contest entrants. - Your costume must be somehow related to Breakdown. Dress as one of the Heroes (check out the video where Geoffrey walks us all through the choices: http://www.twitch.tv/microsoftstudios/b/472522872). Dress as a zombie. Photograph yourself in front of an RV with your go bag and favorite (legal) weapon. Really, as long as you make the most half-hearted effort at relating your costume to Breakdown, it'll count. - Pictures will be reposted to Facebook. - Three winners from the thread will be chosen at random with good ol' Random.org as the judge to get a code for Breakdown. - Five winners will be chosen via public voting. A group of us from Undead Labs will choose our favorites (and we'll consider Facebook likes), and throw it open to public voting here on the forum on Monday, November 4. Top five vote getters at the time I arrive at work on Friday, November 8 win Breakdown codes. Okay! You know what they say: Pics or it didn't happen!
