Halloween contest on Thingiverse

MakerBot Industries is sponsoring a contest: the coolest 3d-printable design wins a spool of glow-in-the-dark ABS:

The temperature is dropping, and so are the leaves. That can only mean one thing – Halloween is ominously looming. To get you in the spirit of the season, we want you to design Halloween things – anything ghoulish, spooky, creepy, and cool. Be creative! Blow us away with your innovations.

A few parameters

Must be .stl file uploaded to Thingiverse and tagged with “Halloween”
Must be a new design as of 8 October, 2010
Deadline is Monday, October 18th at 11:11 p.m.
Must be innovative, spooky, and and printable with a MakerBot
Bonus points for requiring the Cyclops, Unicorn, or Automated Build Platform
The best designs will be judged by our expert panel of holiday spirit guides, and creators of the best designs will receive a one pound roll of ABS!
