With Halloween just two weeks away, we have been perusing our local stores to find the perfect Halloween costume. Do you have yours picked out yet? What are your trick-or-treating plans? In honor of Halloween, Skylanders® Academy put together a cute Halloween safety tips video to keep your little ones safe this season.
Do you have a Skylanders® fan? My kids love the video games, and recently, we learned that there is a Netflix Original Series based on the franchise called Skylanders Academy. Season 2 of the hit animated series premieres Friday, October 6th and I hope you will be watching!
Skylanders Academy Halloween Contest – Win a Playstation 4
I’m excited to announce that I’ve partnered with the creators of the series, Activision Blizzard Studios, to host a Skylanders Academy-themed Halloween costume contest. Through November 1st, upload a photo of your homemade costume, your kids’ costume, or your family’s Halloween costume to either Twitter or Instagram with the
hashtag: #SkylandersAcademyCostumeContest. Be sure to post a link in the Comments section below to
your tweet or Instagram post. Please make sure that you use your own personal Twitter or Instagram
account and that your tweet or post is public.
The costume can be of anything or anyone – not just Skylanders characters. But it needs to be a somewhat homemade, and not completely a store-bought costume. I want to see some creativity! Of course, some pieces may be purchased, but fully packaged costumes will not be considered.
One (1) winner will receive a PlayStation 4 console and a Skylanders Imaginators Starter Pack for PS4 videogame. As the Skylanders are taking over the IHOP® kids menus during the month of October, two (2) runners-up in the contest will receive a $50 IHOP gift card. Who doesn’t love free pancakes?
But the best part? You’ll be able to check “Make Halloween Costume” off of your to-do list.
For some background, if you aren’t already familiar, the show follows some of the favorite Skylanders characters like Spyro (Justin Long), Eruptor (Jonathan Banks), Stealth Elf (Ashley Tisdale), Jet-Vac (Jonny Rees), and Pop Fizz (Bobcat Goldthwait) as they learn how to keep peace and protect the Skylands from the constant threat of villainous forces.
Along with a new class of cadets, and newcomers Cynder (Felicia Day) and Sprocket (Grey Griffin), the team returns in an action-packed Season 2 that finds our heroes seeking answers from the past. Spyro begins a search for information about his ancestors in order to harness and understand his special powers. Meanwhile, Kaos’ quest to bring evil rule to the Skylands realms accidentally unleashes a villain more powerful than anything Kaos or the Skylander warriors have ever faced. The Skylanders unite once more for the greatest showdown against evil yet – putting them all to the ultimate test!
The series also features the voice talents of Norm Macdonald as Glumshanks, Catherine O’Hara as Kaossandra, Parker Posey as Dreamcatcher and Susan Sarandon as Golden Queen.
I’m working with Angela Sellari from the wonderful blog About A Mom – and together we will choose and announce the winner and runners-up across both of our blogs on November 6th, 2017.
The contest closes on November 1st, 2017 at 11:59 PM PT.
Contest entry is restricted to residents of the 48 contiguous United States and the District of Columbia only and you must be over the age of 18 years old at the time of entry. Bloggers and non-bloggers may enter. Please see the Official Skylanders Academy Halloween Costume Contest Rules. Your email address will be kept confidential and not shared with anyone.
Will your family be watching the new season of Skylanders Academy? We can’t wait to check it out! And I am looking forward to seeing your amazing costumes!
