First Contests of the New Year!

If you’ve been following me for a year, you’ll know that I LOVE to do events after the holidays end!  It’s nice to have something to look forward to in those long, dark, cold months besides distant spring. 

So let’s get started!

 

Contest A 'Coming...

Time to make the Fan Choice discount pattern bundles for 2018!  And there’s finally enough options in sizes besides PS to do that!  So here are some lists of different patterns for Slim 1/4, Medium (Classic) and Medium (Curvy) dolls.

Pick 2 of your favorites in each category.  Preferably favorites you haven’t got yet.  Come this weekend I will tally up the top scorers and make special bundles from the most popular selections!

See?  Easy!

Now this next part will be SLIGHTLY more complicated, BUT you might win a prize!

The problem is there are just too many PS patterns to do it in the above manner like previously.  So instead of picking favorites, you’re going to submit your ‘dream combo’ and then those will be what gets voted on.  The fan-favorite combo will become the combo for the year and the person (or persons, if more than one person submits the same combo!) will get those patterns free.  Yeah!

Here’s the detaily stuff:

  1. Patterns must add up to 5 or 5.5.  So 2 double packs and a single pack?  That’s 5 patterns, great.  Four single packs and a 1.5 size pack?  That’s 5.5, also fine.  5 double sized patterns?  That’s 10.  Nope.
  2. You can submit ONE dream combo.
  3. Combo cannot share more than 2 patterns with another bundle (because then it’s too similar to something that is/was available)
  4. To make your combo, copy and paste pictures from the Etsy into a straight horizontal line and resize it so that it’s 200 pixels high.  Length will vary depending on the amount of patterns.  Then submit your combo BY FRIDAY JANUARY 5th, MIDNIGHT EAST COAST TIMEZONE either through Etsy (you can attach images to an Etsy Message) or message it to the RequiemArt Facebook account.

I will then take all of the submissions and post them up Saturday morning, voting for those will take place over the weekend. Winner and new combos will be posted on Monday. 

If this goes well, I’ll make this the method of the fan choice combo for Slim 1/4, Medium Curvy and Medium Classic next year too!
