Monthly Challenge

August Challenge

"Welcome Back to Ghoul"


See Last Month's Challenge

Hello! Thank you for visiting the Mostlydead Challenge page. Each month we hold a new challenge that is open to everyone. Usually they are makeup challenges, sometimes other things. This month is a makeup challenge. Each month we give away a $100 gift certificate code to the lucky winner, and sometimes some other prizes as well.

I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and are squeezing the most out of the sunny weather before the leaves start to change and you (or your children) are dragged back to the tedious routine of the school year. Speaking of school...that is where this month's challenge comes in.

We have all had that one teacher, administrator or even a after-school sitter that really rubbed us the wrong way. You may have even given them a nickname or doodled pictures of their “true self” in your notebook. Perhaps you did skits or a short video of them being monstrous, evil and annoying, but as a child there's not much else you could have done to enlighten the world of just how awful they were. It may have been years, even decades since you have seen this person, but it's never too late to get sweet revenge! Now is the time to show the world the deepest, darkest depths of your most horrible educator....


For this challenge, transform yourself, or someone else, into the “true self” of your most despised teacher. This could be in any stage of your life, from pre-school to college. In addition to the makeup part of the challenge, we want the story... tell us who they were to you, why you chose them and exactly what the monster you've created does to children or what its power is.

Gift certificate will be awarded to the best makeup/concept. Winning photo may be featured on our website.
