First Annual CrunchGear Halloween Costume Contest! Win an XBox!


Halloween is coming up and if there’s one thing I know it’s that geeks love Halloween. The opportunity to hide behind a mask, to subvert the status quo, and to dress up like sexy nurse/sexy witch/sexy balloon boy is a cause for celebration. That said, we’re offering one Xbox 360 Modern Warfare 2 Limited Edition Console to the winner of our First Annual CrunchGear Halloween Costume Contest.

Here’s how to enter.

Send a link to a picture of yourself or send a file of up to 200KB of you in your best geek Halloween costume to with the subject line “COSTUME CONTEST.” You can upload it to any service but please don’t bombard our mailbox with huge image files.

There are a few rules:

* You must be holding something with the word “CrunchGear” written on it. This is proof you didn’t raid some Halloween store’s website.
* The contest will run from today until noon Eastern November 1, 2009
* We will then choose ten runners up and then allow you to choose the winner via a method I will discuss on November 1. We will close the contest on November 10.
* The winner will receive their XBox after November 10, the release date of Modern Warfare 2.

Please have fun and be creative. Here’s some inspiration.
