Welcome to the Quarter Finals of the Evil Baby Glare-Off. We are down to eight babies— three boys, five girls. Will four girls prevail and take this thing to the end, as predicted in Round One? We'll have our answer by the end of the day.

Today's giveaway is from Just Pretend Kids, a costume company who can disguise your evil monster into something resembling a child with a soul. There will be three winners and anyone is eligible to enter (even non-threatening children) at the end of this post. 

And now, say hello to the updated tournament bracket.


Before we get started, there was a great suggestion from Neil's mom to post "good" pictures of all the evil babies after the glare-off is over. If your kid was one of the 32 finalists, please email me a photo of your baby's kinder, gentler side. If your baby doesn't have a kinder, gentler side, I sincerely hope you win this thing. Since your life will most likely be a LIVING HELL until you send that devil off to college.






Today's evil baby questions were contributed by Katherine Young, Anonymous, Kevin Blah and Violina23. I'll be using more of your questions in the next couple of days so if you'd like to write one, please do so here.

Winners will move on to the semi-finals tomorrow. Polls close at 12pm EST.

May the evilest baby win!

Today we will have 3 WINNERS, who will each go home with a dress-up costume or complete tutu set of their choice from Just Pretend Kids.

Started by the grandfather of four little girls, Just Pretend Kids sells amazing tutu, wings and wand sets plus adorable costumes to stimulate imagination and encourage pretend play. 


They have also assured me that all three winners will receive their costumes before Halloween. Or else, they will have to answer to the eight evil babies up top.
