Dubai's infamous Monster Halloween Costume Party will be shipwrecked on a new shoreline on Thursday 30 October. The now legendary Dubai Halloween night, hosted by DJ Tim Cheddar, will take place at Zero Gravity at Skydive Dubai, with a frightening Dhs50,000 in cash prizes for the best costumes. Joining Tim on the deadly decks will be DJ Soulninja and Virgin Radio's Big Rossi, while a skeleton crew of entertainers will perform a spooktacular stage show when the clock strikes midnight.
Dhs50,000 will be split into several costumes categories including best male and female, as well as best group costumes. Everyone in fancy dress will be photographed at the entrance and the winners announced on the Think UAE Facebook page the following week once the judges have searched through the thousands of photos.
One word of warning however, prizes will be awarded for creativity and originality as well as their scare factor, so don't just hire the most expensive costume at Mr. Ben's Costume Closet, the official partner of the Monster Halloween Costume Party. If the last few years are anything to go by, it's going to be a closely fought contest, with petrified party goers putting a lot of effort and enthusiasm into their costumes.
8,000 witches, demons, ghosts and zombies turned up to last year's bash, making it the by far the biggest Halloween Party in the city. So be there and beware on Thursday 30 October at Zero Gravity, it's going to be a monster.
