Happy Friday! And Happy October! The beginning of the month is always extra exciting at CSI, as we have new sponsors, new guest designers, and a new theme to tie together our Case Files. With the beginning of the month, we present our Major Case File, which stays open the entire month. And our Major Case File has a fantastic Composite Sketch created just for CSI by The Nifty Pixel!
So, are you ready for this week's challenge? Grab your forensics kits, CSI members, and get ready for some serious sleuthing as we open Major Case File No. 214.
October is the month of Halloween, so we're celebrating all things monster. With that in mind, we have a super-fun Scene to inspire our Major Case File this month by Austrian designer Teodor Badiu.
Remember to scroll all the way down to the bottom of this reveal post for RGB codes, color descriptions, and more detailed explanations of the Evidence and Testimony prompts.
