A screen shot would not give you a good impression. You would miss the sounds and the motion.

For the time being you can try the following:

- Visit https://ctan.org/user/settings and select the skin gray
- In your browser you now have a cookie for the site "ctan.org" with the name "skin" and the value "gray"
- Depending on your browser use the appropriate means to change the value to "halloween"
- For instance for Firefox there is the addon https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/a-cookie-manager/ which allows to edit the cookies.

Now you can enjoy the halloween skin for the rest of the year.
If you don't like it any more go to the settings page and reset to the default skin (or any you like)

I might stop supporting the halloween skin in order to prepare something for the next Halloween...;-)
