Blue Jay Jose Bautista announced he would give out a prize to the five people who get the most retweets for a photo of them dressed up as him for Halloween. The contest is almost over, and people — and animals! — have outdone themselves.
First we have a very pristine Bautista beard.
Bautista may not be crazy about the ear interpretation on this one.
So much going on here, wow. We're kinda terrified, actually.
This costume involved someone dressing up as a bat. So it has that going for it.
There were, of course, many bat flip entries.
This kid nailed it.
But now let's get to the really important entries: baby Bautistas, and other adorableness. Look at this right now.
Oh, these two.
This girl "was the only non-princess at her preschool."
This is Bautista "after ALCS game 6," according to the parent who took this pic. (The Jays lost that game, and the series.)
To go in the other direction, this guy should probably not get your retweet vote.
But this was absolutely next level.
Also, yes, there was a "sexy Bautista" entry.
Jose Meowtista made a very important appearance. (RT this or you are dead to us.)
And THIS. A French bulldog with a bat flip is what Halloween 2015 was made for.
