Update: And we have a winner! Thanks for playing. Stay safe and warm out there.
We're down to the wire, people: Halloween, which falls on a Friday this year, is only two days away. Personally, I can tell you my costume idea is not working out, but maybe you are slightly more organized than I am. Maybe you have, I don't know, a voodoo-themed outfit planned and nowhere to take it.
In that case, you've come to the right blog post! We've got a pair of VIP passes to Coloween, Denver's annual tribute to facepaint and debauchery, held this year at City Hall. Costume genius Riff Raff will both perform and judge the $1,000 contest.

Here's what you have to do to win: Come up with a costume idea inspired by Riff Raff. Fair game includes his lyrics, his videos, his tweets, whatever you like. Enter by submitting your idea as a comment below or tweeting it with the hashtag #riffoween. We will accept photos, screenshots or brief descriptions. Puns are strongly encouraged.
What you stand to win: The VIP passes are regularly $59 each and include two free drinks, express entry, free psychic readings, a VIP lounge and more. You have until the end of the work day today to enter!
Here, by way of inspiration, is the still-bonkers video for "Dolce & Gabbana"
