Win Legendary Items From Destiny's In-Game Halloween Costume Contest

Celebrate Halloween in Destiny.


This weekend, people across the world will dress up in costumes for Halloween--and Bungie is hoping people do the same in Destiny. The developer has announced a special in-game costume contest challenging players to deck their characters out with spooky masks, armor, and shaders.

This is part of Destiny's ongoing Festival of the Lost Halloween campaign. To take part in the costume contest, dress up your character and take a screenshot. Then share it will Bungie on Twitter (@Bungie) using the hashtag #ContestOfTheLost.

Bungie will then select winners using three main criteria: humor, creativity, and "just being epic." There are three costume contest categories. As written by Bungie, these are:

  • Best Costume Portrait: Journey into the world of the game and strike a pose against the best background--just your Guardian in the ideal setting for your costume. Bring a friend to take the shot, if you want, but all we want to see is you.
  • Best Group Shot: Form up a Fireteam and agree on a theme for your costumes. Family affairs? Rivalries? Vendors who love their work? Your call. Show us what you come up with.
  • Best Dance Party: Expert Mode: Choreograph your moves. Put on a show. This takes synchronization and a spooky sense of style.

Bungie will announce the winners in the Bungie Weekly Update. These blog posts typically arrive on Thursday afternoon PDT, though Bungie did not say if it's happening this week or next.

Whatever the case, winners will take home the following prizes:

  • First Prize: Collector's Edition Strange Coin
  • Second Prize: Exotic Engram Stress Ball
  • Third Prize: Legendary Engram Stress Ball

A quick search for #ContestOfTheLost on Twitter yields some pretty great results already. For more on Destiny's Festival of the Lost Halloween campaign, check out this rundown of what to expect.
