Every day is dress up day in Second Life, but now is your chance to win some cool prizes for it.
The Second Life Fa-BOO-lous Halloween Snapshot Contest is here! Get your avi ready and show us your best Halloween/Dia de los Muertos themed images.
The post goes on to list some venues where photos for the competition may be taken, as drawn from the Destination Guide.
Those entering the competition should submit their snapshots via the contest web page. Winners will be voted on by the community.
The competition page also includes a link to the full competition rules, which people are advised to read prior to entering.
