I’m sure some of you are familiar with the Skylanders® videogames. There is a Netflix Original Series based on the franchise called SkylandersTM Academy, and Season 2 of the hit animated series premieres Friday, October 6th.
I’m excited to announce that I’ve partnered with the creators of the series, Activision Blizzard Studios, to host a Skylanders Academy-themed Halloween costume contest. I’m challenging you all to create a costume for yourself or your kids based on the Skylanders Academy characters.
The one (1) winner will receive a PlayStation 4 console and a Skylanders Imaginators Starter Pack for PS4 videogame. As the Skylanders are taking over the IHOP® kids menus during the month of October, two (2) runners-up in the contest will receive a $50 IHOP gift card. Who doesn’t love free pancakes?
But the best part? You’ll be able to check “Make Halloween Costume” off of your to-do list.
For some background, if you aren’t already familiar, the show follows some of the favorite Skylanders characters like Spyro (Justin Long), Eruptor (Jonathan Banks), Stealth Elf (Ashley Tisdale), Jet-Vac (Jonny Rees), and Pop Fizz (Bobcat Goldthwait) as they learn how to keep peace and protect the Skylands from the constant threat of villainous forces.
Along with a new class of cadets, and newcomers Cynder (Felicia Day) and Sprocket (Grey Griffin), the team returns in an action-packed Season 2 that finds our heroes seeking answers from the past. Spyro begins a search for information about his ancestors in order to harness and understand his special powers. Meanwhile, Kaos’ quest to bring evil rule to the Skylands realms accidentally unleashes a villain more powerful than anything Kaos or the Skylander warriors have ever faced. The Skylanders unite once more for the greatest showdown against evil yet – putting them all to the ultimate test!
The series also features the voice talents of Norm Macdonald as Glumshanks, Catherine O’Hara as Kaossandra, Parker Posey as Dreamcatcher and Susan Sarandon as Golden Queen.
As you can see, there’s a TON of characters to choose from. And they all have different designs, colors and patterns, so get creative and have fun with it!
