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!

Previously I had requested a Christmas version of my avatar from you and it's always my favorite time of the year that I get to swap out for it. If you have the time again and wouldn't mind, I would love a spooky version of my profile pic personally made by you as well. The only condition I have is that I am super duper afraid of spiders, I'm good with just about anything else though. Thank you for your time ^-^
Reflective surfaces are the bane of my existence.
Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
I love it and I'll definitely make sure to use it every single year!!!!!
I also made sure to credit you in my bio so anyway thank you thank you thank you, I love my new pumpkinball!
Hey. Can you do a spookytucs?
Helping out with these while Jbond catches up on gaming :3c
Hope you like it!
That's great, thanks a lot =)
Wanted to ask to do me ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°), but then decided to try to do it myself. Thanks for the inspiration :D
That turned out really great! Reminds me a lot of Dead Island.
I like how subtly you used the blood effects 😉
Edit: Just in case anybody else is curious what your source material was:
Haha, thanks :)
Just a heads up, a little ninja will join me again this year to help out with some requests. Just so you know if you receive one from them, it's "legit". :D
It would be great if you could spookify my avatar. But if you can't thats also fine. I've seen some really nice ones here!
So kind of you to do this.
I'll be doing today's batch! Hope you like it :3
Ooooh! I love it!
Thank you! 💜
It's so awesome, I've been quietly lurking during last year's Spookifying and Christmasifying events, admiring the work done of the profile pics.
I think I'm ready to have mine done, if you still have some bandwidth and inspiration.
Just for some context, my profile pic is a picture of my shadow as I was backpacking with my rollerblades over my shoulder.
I'll be replacing Jbond for today's Spookifications! That was a cool picture :)
That looks so cool, thank you so much <3
Now I feel like murdering people with rollerblades... again ;)
What I personally find more curious than the "again" part is whether he means he wants to murder rollerbladers or sharpen the blades of this skates and murder people with them. You know... like skating around, doing round house kicks and severing heads 😆
If it's the latter I really want to watch a movie based on that.
Welp, we already have the movie cover right there >:3
Could you make me even spookier, please?
Niiiiiceee, thank you so much, looks awesome!
I'd love to be spookifyied as well :)
I don't think I've changed my profile pic since last year so I'm not here to ask you to do your magic. Rather did I look up this thread to see if you guys were still doing it this year. Aaaand now I'm happy. ✨
I would love to get spooky ^^
I'm not sure if my profile pic is good for this purpose so I attached the original (non blurple) version of it.
Thanks in advance
I may be late to the party here, but if you choose my profile picture, I would enjoy seeing it spookified!
Regardless, thank you for these threads every year!
This is crazy cool! Just in time fort halloween! Thank you!
With October coming to an end and November rolling in, the Spookifying Thread of 2020 is officially closed.
The stats for this year are as follow:
This year we made many less spookifications than the recent past years, but we also saw less requests, which I think is a factor. Regardless, I hope everyone had fun requesting, receiving, or just looking at this year's spookifications and forum beautification.
See you next year (if I feel up to it again)!
...Or in December. Christmasifying thread coming soon in December!
Thanks again! :)
