The formerly warm temperatures dip as the days go by
And gradually the leaves wilt and begin to fall en masse
The warm sunsets are gone, now replaced by a cold grey sky
The signs are clear as day - Summer has come to pass.
As I observe the leaves flitter down from the trees and land upon the ground
I wake up from my daydream and come to a sudden realization;
"It is October, but the Spookifying thread is nowhere to be found!"
Without delay, I prepare for the task at hand - No more procrastination!
October (or spooktober) is upon us. To many, October is just another month of the year, and perhaps the last month before the Christmas craze sets in, especially in stores, for some countries. To some, it is a time of celebration (and mostly an excuse to party and get wasted).
To some of us more dignified members of society however... October is the month of s p o o k i n e s s.
How does one spook I hear you ask? Well, am I glad you asked...
Spookifying is a term coined by resident spookster jbondguy007. It refers to the action of taking a normal profile picture and turning it into something... spooooooky!
Almost every year since 2015 (2018 was skipped due to being too busy!), I have created a spookifying thread where members of the Steamgifts community are invited to request a "spookification" - and if they were lucky and chosen... I would spookify their profile picture, and send it to them in a reply.
The tradition lives on to this day - so here we are once again, united for the sole purpose of spreading some positive vibes and beautifying (or terrifying!) the Steamgifts community!
To apply, simply post a comment in this thread requesting a spookification (mind guidelines below!). I'll periodically go through comments (oldest to newest), find the ones I feel I can work with, and begin my work. Do keep in mind that I am one single guy with nearly no artistic/design skills, receiving often hundreds of requests every year. For this reason, some requests will go unanswered, and I might be weeks behind on requests at times.
Anyone can request a spookification, but do keep in mind these following rule of thumbs to increase your chances of being picked:
Do keep in mind that this is just the general guidelines I use when doing these, so don't be afraid to request regardless of your profile picture!
And that's pretty much it! Let the spookifying begin!
This thread will be open until October 31st (hopefully)
Please remember to sync your account after switching profile picture!

Thats pretty good thanks!
First, thanks for doing this again.
I was fortunate enough to get my avatar spookyfied before, but may I still ask for another version?
If not, no problem and I understand that. In that case I'll just, happily, re-use the 2017 version.
that's awesome. thank you, jbond!
Color me interested.
I hope "interested" is red.
A bloodied axe is exactly what I wanted! Thanks!
Spooky Link please! 👻
Wow, that looks terrifying! Thanks!
Hmm, why not ¯_(ツ)_/¯ Thanks for spookification!
Terrific and terrifying! Many thanks jbond! Time to redesign my profile :P

Welcome back to the Badlands!

I would like to be spookified :)
Don't forget the hamster please
Yours looks so cool! I never even noticed the hamster until you pointed it out just now. Where are the characters from?
They are Minsc and Boo from Baldur's Gate.
Thanks, I really ought to play those games someday.
Ha, I'm already using mine from 2019! I don't need another one, this one is amazing and it'd be better to focus on someone new. Thank you for making people s p o o k y again!
You have a relevant name too!
I love that username :D
I challenge you to a spooky Truck =P
Ooo..all I can think of is the face on the truck in the movie maximum overdrive.

requesting a spookification
I'm sure you can change me into a death bringing machine :D
wow :) AWESOME!
Maybe mine can't be easily spookifyed, I don't know, but I would be happy if you would try. :)
Oh wow, this is sick! I love it :D
Ooooh, my favourite british blue spy dragon :> ... ♥
Can you ... spook me? I'd love me some spookification :D Maybe with fire?
So... I realize I went a bit overboard with it and it doesn't even remotely look like it did. So if it's too much, let me know and I'll add you to the queue of redos. :P
I love it! Thank you so much ♥
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, I would love to get spookifyed <3
Bartender by day... ghoul by night.
Thank you so much <3 <3
I love it! Using it on my WPP right now :D
Your art is amazingggg
Thank you. <3
So huh, terrible timing - right after making this thread I started feeling unwell. I'll resume my work a bit later, but for now I don't feel fit enough to do anything that takes effort. Hopefully it's just my allergies acting up reaaaal bad, and nothing else less temporary. D:
Anyways, just an update why I might not post more images in the next few hours/today. Don't hesitate to continue posting requests though, I'll get to them eventually (there's still almost a month before I close the thread!)
I hope you feel better! Take your time. Heal yourself. Get plenty of rest! Much love!
Thank you, I'm all better now. Very swift recovery, thankfully. ^^
Good to hear! You're welcome! :) Super Power Healing! Commense! <3
Hope you feel better soon Jbond!
Thank you for the good wishes - I'm much better now! That was a super fast recovery. :o
Sry to hear, you were feeling unwell, but happy you are up and about again \o/
I'm so sorry to hear that you are feeling unwell! I hope it is nothing serious and that you feel better soon =(
While I hope you take whatever time necessary to rest and recuperate, if you feel up to it I would like to spookify my avatar! 🦇🎃👻
Yes, I feel much better now! Thanks for the kind words. ^^
That is incredible =D Thank you so much!
I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better.
Would love to be Spookified, and just in time for my avatar change :) Loved the one last year you did.
And get well soon, sucks being a ghoul
Great job, thanks xx
NOT requesting spookification as I don't change my picture(or nickname)... But I love the efforts this far.
I'm very happy with last year's avatar... Terrifying as well as elegant ^^
That'd be sweet, if you have the time. ^^
Hello Mr. Bond. I am ready for the next round!
Sorry for the delay (considering you were technically the first to request one)!
oh ho thank you!
