Happy Halloween! 👻
Happy October, ghosts and ghouls! This October we're celebrating Halloween with a month-long event. Let's find some pumpkins, brew some potions, clip on our bat-wings and go all-out with some Halloween-themed Minecraft creations!

You can enter up to FIVE Halloween-themed creations. Don't let appearances fool you: there is nothing scary about joining in on the fun. We welcome any crafty creation that fits the theme! Skins can be wicked witches and terrible monsters, or trick-or-treaters in fun costumes. You can build haunted houses or mysterious graveyards, write spine-chilling tales or add some spooks to the world of Minecraft!

This is not a contest. No competition, judges, scores or leader-boards. It's an all-inclusive event where anybody can join in on the fun of celebrating a Happy Halloween together.


I've carved my pumpkin. How can I share? 🎃

Submitting your entries is easy! Be sure that everybody understands how your creation fits the theme of the event. Upload your creation to one of the following categories: Projects, (Mob) Skins, Data Packs or Blogs. When submitting the entry, check the box indicating it's for the "Happy Halloween Community Event". Easy as pumpkin pie!

To add to the event experience, we encourage you to diamond, favorite and comment on your favorite Halloween submissions this month! Maybe share your favorites in a wall-post or gather them into a collection! Everyone appreciates receiving positive responses to their creations.


Grab some tea and get cozy. You have the entire month of October! 🍂
You have plenty of time to work on your creations for this event. That means no last-minute toilet-paper mummies and bed-sheet-ghosts this Halloween! We encourage everybody to get creative with the theme!

🏠 If you enter a project, it would be great if you could share a world save or schematic too, so that other players can enjoy it in Minecraft! You can create any kind of project. That includes land, air, sea, space and time structures, adventure maps, redstone contraptions, organics, terraforms and pixel art. Be sure to include some good visuals (screenshots) and a clear description with your project to maximize the experience.

👩‍🦰 If you enter a skin, make it fun to use in-game! That way, other players can have fun dressing up Halloween-style thanks to your creation. Start from scratch rather than using any default or common base textures. There are several Minecraft skin editing programs available, but we recommend PMCSkin3D! If you need some help getting started with skins, PMC member Beanie made this excellent video tutorial on the basics of Minecraft skin editing!

🦇 If you enter a mob skin, keep in mind to start from scratch! You can use PMCSkin3D to create your own bats, phantoms, cats, zombies, skeletons and all other mobs, to make them spookier than ever before!

📚 If you enter a blog you naturally have more options than we can give advice on. The blog section allows for all kinds of writing, including stories, poems, articles and interviews. Write to impress and shuffle in some proper grammar whenever possible. Be aware that Planet Minecraft is a family friendly site! So make sure your Halloween horror stories won't cause too many nightmares!

🎁 If you enter a data pack who knows what you'll add into the game to make Minecraft more spooky and ghoulish to explore this October! We're excited to see and try what you come up with.

🎨 If you enter artwork or a video, we love your unharnessed creativity and you can use the blog section to share it! We don't require featured images for blogs but a good one can raise an eyebrow or two resulting in more views so it's a recommendation. PMC member Chiaroscuro wrote a great tutorial on how to create featured images which will help you to create your own.
