You can win $10,000 for making a Halloween costume that shows your greatest fear

When you think of Halloween fears, odds are ghosts, zombies and other ghoulish creatures come to mind.

But what about real-life fears? You know, things like having a job you hate or moving back in with your parents. (The horror!)

When you’re an adult, there are plenty of things scarier than people in masks with fake chainsaws jumping out at you at a haunted house. And most of these real-life horrors have one thing in common: money.

Luckily, there’s a contest this Halloween that will give you a chance to win cash simply for revealing your biggest fear. Natural Light’s Halloween Scaries contest is offering $10,000 to whoever comes up with the best costume that expresses their real-life fear.

All you have to do is create the costume and post a photo of it on social media and you’re in the running.

Natural Light

Now through Nov. 3, simply take a photo of your costume that reflects one of your everyday fears and include the hashtags #NattyScaries and #Contest when posting to Instagram or Twitter.

You also need to follow Natural Light on whichever platform you’re using to submit your entry and make sure your account is public so Natural Light can see your post.

One grand prize winner will receive $10,000, awarded in the form of a check. Ten other entrants will each win $1,000.

Keep in mind that if a costume includes additional people other than only the entrant, the only costume considered for the contest will be the one worn by the person who owns the social media account.

All eligible entries will be judged on creativity, originality and relevance to the contest theme. The entry that receives the highest cumulative scores will be deemed the grand prize winner, while the 10 entries receiving the next-highest cumulative scores will receive $1,000 each.

You can read the official rules on Natural Light’s website.

What is your greatest real-life fear?
