Halloween approaches, and we're starting to see more monsters, skulls...you know, scary stuff.  It's not as though we don't see those themes during the rest of the year, just that we see more of them 'round about now.  Our favorite:  Sleeper Catcher, by Badtrip.

The skins on the Top Ten this week are outstanding, with a new Oxums set from Badtrip, a Cobalt AK from Veys, and more.  It's ALL awesome, but our favorite pick this week has got to be the Oxums Guns Team MP5 Racer, by Badtrip.

A whopping seventeen approvals this week, including one armor set and one clothing set.  Our favorite this week remains Cobalt Survival Bag, by La Crampe.

Two strong sets this week by T.O.N.Y.A.E.R. and LittleRanger.  We think the Cobalt Space Sleeping Bag is the best skin for quality, creativity, and game lore, but all the skins in the blog are very strong this week.

About half the skins approved this week are from the back burner or have been sitting in the suggested pile for awhile. Of particular note is the Metalhunter set, an eight piece set that just saw the final four approvals go through.  Our favorite approval: The Dead Pirate Rifle, by JohnnyOldBoy.
