X360F Contest: GOW themes & picture packs [update 1]

It's getting perilously close to Halloween (CliffyB is going as a bunny. A chainsaw happy, curb stomping bunny). So close that we think it's time for another contest! The prize: a free Gears of War theme and picture pack for your Xbox 360. You may remember that we got a few extras at our local GameStop during the "After Dark" event last Saturday. We couldn't give them away before because they didn't work. Well, now they do. Huzzah!

Since the prize isn't as grand as, say, a copy of Lumines Live!, we're making this contest a little easier. All you have to do is leave a comment describing what 360 inspired costume you'll be wearing this Halloween. We'll pick 5 random winners. The winners will be announced tomorrow. See, that's easy. We've got five to give away, so that's five chances to win, five times the fun.

But wait, there's more. If you don't win tomorrow, stay tuned for another contest, in which you could win a copy of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 (hint: hope you like pumpkins). And hopefully, we'll have even more swag to give away after that. We've gone contest crazy, I tells ya! So, leave us a comment telling us what your (possibly fictional) costume is, and you could be a winner.

General contest stuff: only 1 entry, please. Winners will be decided completely randomly. The quality, or lack thereof, of the entry has no bearing on its odds to win. That's it. Have fun.

Update: The contest is now over, click here to see the winners.

I think a "Bill Gates in the Gears of War' costume would be great. I am also considering a media remote (with light-up buttons) costume.

Considering that Halloween is a tuesday night this year... I will likely just stay home and play some GRAW/TW07.

I will be dressing up as a broken 360 system. I will have a red light on the front. My friend will be a power brick and my other friend who is really short will be the HD DVD drive.

I'll be going as one of the maightiest warriors warriors of Halo (No not the master chief, I'm not rich enough to buy that) I'll be going as an ODST(Orbital Drop Shock Trooper) from Halo 3. I'll have to use some concept art just to make sure it's not too much different from the halo 2 ones, as far as I have seen they are the same overall. And yes I will have my name on the uniform be "Jenkins" lol

Cortana, but painted on, like Mystique. (Which will be plenty scary for Halloween)
