Ozzy Osbourne (opens in new tab) has launched a Halloween costume contest which will run through November 1.

The Black Sabbath (opens in new tab) icon is asking fans to dress up in their favourite Ozzy guise and upload the image to the singer’s website (opens in new tab).

Ten winners will be selected, with each receiving an autographed bone similar to the one on the cover of Ozzy’s upcoming See You On The Other Side box set.

Ozzy has also launched a video for the competition, which shows him personally signing the bones. Check it out below.

And speaking of Halloween, we’ve compiled our top 10 heavy metal costume ideas (opens in new tab) which – as chances would have it – also includes suggestions of how you could pull off the Ozzy look.

The See You On The Other Side box set will be released on November 29 and brings together all 10 of Ozzy’s solo albums along with the Mr Crowley EP, the Tribute double live album, the Just Say Ozzy EP, Live & Loud, Live At Budokan, and a collection on non-LP tracks titled Flippin’ The B-Side.

Each disc will be presented on hand-pressed, multi-coloured splatter vinyl, while the box set will come with 10 newly designed 24 x 36 posters, 12 augmented reality experiences and each will be signed by Ozzy himself.

The box set is available to pre-order through Ozzy’s website. Find full details below.
