For October issue's comic strip, Amelia the Fox and her minibeast friends got into disguises to attend a Halloween party. We challenged you to design a Halloween costume for your favourite minibeast! The entries were marvellous! You all sent in lots of animals dressed in fantastic disguises and camouflage! We love your imaginations! 


Congratulations to our 5 winners: 

Ariana, age 6, London: Owl moth dressed as an owl

This owl moth looks fantastic. What a great disguise with the owl’s big eyes and wings! A very creative entry.


Izaac, age 7, Lewes: Spider dressed as a bee

This spider looks spectacular. What fancy wings and striped body he has! No one would ever notice he was secretly a spider.


 Rosie, age 9, Ashton Keynes: Bee dressed as a ghost

This bumble bee looks fantastic! We can tell that Rosie has thought hard about making sure the bee can still fly and that it doesn’t get too hot. No one would ever notice that he’s secretly a bee. 


Santhana, age 9, Williamsville, USA:  Blue butterfly dressed as a clown

A spectacular butterfly. What a bright and colourful costume! We love how Santhana has created an entertaining comic strip, which includes some interesting facts. Well done!


Henry, age 7, Boughton: Cricket dressed as a ghost

A fantastic looking cricket. What great disguise! This Halloween party looks so much fun with the balloons and decorations! 

We hope that all our winners enjoy exploring with their minibeast explorer kits from RSPB!

We also wanted to shine the light on some other creative and unique entries that we felt deserved a mention. A big well done to our runners-up:

 

Celeste Valero, age 8: Orange and blue butterfly


Edward, age 4: Batercater

This bumble bee looks fantastic! We can tell that Rosie has thought hard about making sure the bee can still fly and that it doesn’t get too hot. No one would ever notice that he’s secretly a bee. 

Fauste, age 8, Grays: Robberflies


Alfie, age 8, Shetland: Wizard snail
