Doot Doot! PMC!

I see dead pixels. It's OCTOBER and we're celebrating by hosting a spoopy doopy scary event that'll chill you to your bones, and we hope you'll join us! Put on your witch hat and start boiling your best brew, because this is going to be one fangtastic month! Cheers, witches!

Oh my gourd. 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 a scared-y cat, 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. Think mummies, pumpkins, cereal killers, zombies, bats, and ghosts. 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. Okay, so what's the point? This event is for the pure fun of creating something together as a community and seeing the theme shine through! At the end of the event, each participant will receive a special, bootiful award for their trophy case. Go alone, team up. If you go alone, we advise you to look behind your back.

I'm dying to start! How do I contribute to this Terrifying cause?

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

person_pin Profile Themes
If you decorate your profile for the season, we want to see! Ghosts, goblins, tomb stones, witches, warlocks, or even some fall colors! There are a couple of ways to do this: you can comment on this thread and let us know, OR you can tag PMC in a wall post and we will take a peek! At the conclusion of the event,we will feature one or more members profiles for readers to see!

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

Even though this is a non-competitive event, we encourage spooktacular submissions! 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 experience.

If you enter a skin, go for good usable character skins that people can use to dress-up fall-style 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 data pack who knows what you'll add into the game to make Minecraft more seasonal and fun to explore during and of course after this event! We're excited to see and try what you come up with.

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, 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.
