Welcome to the beginning of the end of the 2012 Halloween Avatar Contest! This marks the second anniversary of the event on the UFOP:118 forums, and competition has been stiff as the graphics masters and ship cheerleaders across the fleet test their mettle. This time around, almost every ship has elected to participate with the following wonderful and creative themes: USS Apollo — the crew (and various and sundry associates) of Firefly; USS Avandar — characters from The Wizard of Oz; Embassy — the Duronis II zoo; USS Mercury — horrible mugshots; Starbase 118 Ops — black & white movie stars; USS Tiger — Star Wars characters. Check out the entries now, as they’ll only remain until the end of All Saints’ Day (November 1st). Who will win? Stay tuned!
