While the Development team has been taking care of the bugs that annoy us all, as well as working on making the game more secure, the LiveOps team worked hard to bring you a brand new Bazaar with custom-made decorations and artwork. This is a Grand Bazaar where you can trade, pop some keys or just chill’ – we have rooms for everyone. This Halloween, we selected 51 character skins and 28 pet skins that you will be able to acquire individually, for the first time! Plus, you find all the Blueprints from A to D and some S and S+ will be available in quests from now on. The Blood & Spirit Campaign will give you access to some very unique and spooky skins and ST reskins. If you make it to the last tier, you will get a ghostly reskin of the Cloak of Bloody Surprises. What excites you the most in the trailer you’ve just seen?
This Halloween it’s all about what you wear. How spooky will you look in-game or IRL? We’ve got you covered.
Halloween cosplay contest
Dressing up your characters is a given, but will you truly embody the spookiest time of year? This time we want everyone to get into the Halloween spirit. And you can also bring your pets to the party!
The Halloween Cosplay contest starts today, October 20th and submissions will be open until November 17th. Judging will take place until November 23rd, after which we’ll announce the winners and start handing out rewards. So, what is the contest about?
Show us your (and/or your pets’) Realm-inspired real-life Halloween costumes – feel free to be creative with ideas, materials, photography. . . just don’t overdo it on the editing! If the stuff you found in your basement is all it takes to make a convincing costume, we’ll be very happy to see it. If you achieve a cool result using random items and forced perspective or other photography techniques, good job! The only real requirement is that your submission is Realm-inspired and original. The main category will see you compete with costumes you made for yourselves (or whoever is willing to model them for you), and the pet category, self-explanatorily, is for your very patient cats, dogs, rodents, birds, reptiles, ungulates, and so on. If they indeed can tolerate you dressing them up as Realm critters or characters.
To participate, please leave a comment here on the blog with a link to a photo of your costume (and/or your pet’s costume). It should follow this format:

Short description (What is your costume, how did you make it?):
You are, of course, allowed to participate in both categories, but with only one submission per category. If you somehow manage to make your pet take a photo with you, that may be the same photo.
Winners will be contacted by email in order to keep anonymity. You don’t need to enter your IGN or any identifier in the submission entry, just your correct email address when posting the comment – we’re the only ones able to see it. Entries containing sensitive information or inappropriate content will thus not be published.
The rewards are:
For the best costume:
1: Halloween ST set of choice, 2.5k gold
2: Halloween ST set of choice, 1.5k gold
3: Halloween ST set of choice
For the best pet costume:
1st: 3 Chocolate Bars, 2k gold
2nd: 2 Chocolate Bars, 1k gold
3rd: 1 Chocolate Bar and 1 Eyecicle
The mighty DECA staff will be judging the contest based on the defined criteria: effort; creativity; fidelity, and presentation. Yes, they remind you of the cooking contest. Crafts are crafts!
Effort: How well-made is your costume?
Creativity: Alternatively, did you make great use of homemade materials? And did you pick an interesting inspiration for your costume?
Fidelity: How close is your look to the inspiration for the costume?
Presentation: How much effort went into taking a decent photo?
We’re looking forward to seeing your creativity!
