Derby #13: Halloween

Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.

Derby #13: Halloween

Here it is, the one people have been thinking about for weeks (and submitting entries for almost as long), at lucky number 13: Halloween! The whole spectrum of hallowed imagery is in play, from arched-back black cats to warty-nosed witches to the "Father Murphy" costume we once saw in a five-and-dime store in the early '80s, complete with cheapo plastic Merlin Olsen mask. The winning shirts will be sold as part of a full week of Halloween shirt festivity, and we've already chosen the commissioned shirts we're going to sell during that week. So if it looks like we ripped off your werewolves-trick-or-treating-in-Atlantis shirt idea, well, we didn't. Now go trick our voters into awarding you the treat of $500. It's all in the name of Halloween.
