French bulldog with a bat flip is what Halloween 2015 was made for.

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 β€” and animals! β€” have outdone themselves.

Contest time guys! Tweet Pic of @JoeyBats19 costume with #JoeyBats19Halloween and 5 tweets with most RT by midnight Sunday wins a JB hat!

First we have a very pristine Bautista beard.

@JoeyBats19 How's my cut? #JoeyBats19Halloween #teachershavemorefun πŸŽƒ

Like, she should run a house painting company or something.

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.

Recreation of epic bat flip. Happy Halloween! #JoeyBats19Halloween

There were, of course, many bat flip entries.

Happy Halloween! πŸ˜„ @JoeyBats19 @BlueJays #JoeyBats19Halloween #BatFlip

This kid nailed it.

But now let's get to the really important entries: baby Bautistas, and other adorableness. Look at this right now.

My 4yo @JoeyBats19 was the only non-princess at her preschool. I think we won parenting. #JoeyBats19Halloween

Serious cuteness.

My daughter wanted to be @BringerOfRain20 so I had to grow a beard and be @JoeyBats19 #JoeyBats19Halloween

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.

Alright you ghouls, here's my Ridin' Dirty @JoeyBats19 costume for #JoeyBats19Halloween contest πŸ‘»βšΎοΈπŸ‘»

Also, yes, there was a "sexy Bautista" entry.

Jose Meowtista made a very important appearance. (RT this or you are dead to us.)
