You'll find a pixel art event trophy on your profile pages.


Gather around the crackling fire and listen to a short tale based on true events. Way back in October of 2011, Planet Minecraft had its very first contest themed around the spookiest holiday, "Halloween". Creatives from all around the planet joined together to make sure no Minecrafter went without a costume. Now, seven years later, we are reviving the contest from the dead and transforming it into the first ever official open community event for October 2018 on PMC! Let's get Minecraft ready for Halloween! MuHAHhAhahAHAHa

I'm scared of everything. What is this spooky community event?

We're taking PMC and Minecraft and squashing them into a Halloween mixture for the month of October! Don't be scared, join the fun! During this themed month long event, each member or group can enter up to five Halloween-themed creations into the event. You can create skins, maps or blogs of all varieties and submit any combination of them. The possibilities are as endless as the time it takes the headless horseman to locate his forehead. As long as your entries are Halloween-related from spooky to terror-ific, it should join the festival of what's happening this month!

Event? This means no competition, no judges and no final leader board. This event is for the pure fun of creating something together as a community! At the end of the event, each participant will receive a special award for their trophy case. Go alone, team up, roll over, it's all good.

How do I contribute to this Horrific cause?

Simple, create something new or multiple somethings that are Halloween-themed. Upload your creation to one of the following categories: Projects, Skins or Blogs. Upload your creation like normal but check the box indicating it's for the "Halloween Community Event".

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.

Take your time, you've got the entire month of October!

Even though this is a non-competitive event, we encourage you to do your best. The event will be active for the entire month of October, so don't rush it! Here are some tips for each category:

If you enter a project, we encourage you to share a world save or schematic so that we can use your creation 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 flavor.

If you enter a skin, go for good usable character skins that people can use to dress-up for Halloween in Minecraft! 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 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. Dot your i's and sip your teas as they can be hot.

If you enter artwork or a video, I 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.

Rules & Guidelines

Even though this is a non-competitive event, there are a few, uh, provisos. Ah, a couple of rules and guidelines.

Up to five entries per participant!
The event allows for any participant to enter up to five entries in any combination of projects, skins and blogs categories. Video's, artwork and other creative creations can also be shared as a blog-post.
  • The standard rules of Planet Minecraft apply to any submission.
  • You are expected to enter new work. This means you cannot enter any creation that was previously uploaded to Planet Minecraft.
  • You are allowed to enter work that was created for another Halloween-themed unofficial community event.
  • Collaborations and teamwork are allowed for this event.
  • Submissions that do not follow the Halloween theme will be disqualified.


  • If you create an entry which doesn't immediately seem Halloween-themed (for example: a fairy costume skin), make sure to explain the relevance to the theme in your submission's description.
  • You can create a skin, a blog-post and a project, you do not have to choose a single category.
  • You have the entire month of October, so take your time and have fun!
