The 2011 Zombie Luther Contest

October 31st marks two very different celebrations. The obvious celebration in America on October 31st is Halloween. It’s that evening when we dress up, scare each other, and get candy (unless you’re a hyper Fundy…then it’s the day when little kids worship demons). But October 31st also marks the date when Martin Luther nailed his 95 Thesis to the church door at Wittenberg, and thereby launched (if unintentionally) the Protestant Reformation. I want to combine these two events into one wild and crazy contest: The Zombie Luther Contest!

If you’d like to compete here are the rules:

1. You must come up with a theologically themed Halloween costume (examples: Zombie Luther, decapitated Apostle Paul, burned Michael Servetus, Count Zinzendorf Dracula, etc.)

2. You must take a picture of yourself in said costume and submit it here via link to the picture available online.

3. The most creative, as determined by me and a poll of readers, will win a Luther-themed Prize

This year’s Prize: An insightful, and often hilarious, book  The Wit of Martin Luther by Eric Gritsch
