Halloween is just around the corner! Enjoy this festively spooky season with these exciting contests. :)

***

trick-or-treat-small

For two straight years, this contest has delivered chosen Socians a chance to pick one of two prizes. Here’s how to join!

1.) Send your apartment address and full SocioTown name to my email at dawn @ sociotown (dot) com. You can also send your address to my forum inbox or in-game inbox. If you don’t have an apartment, you can just have the park as your location. :)

2.) 10 lucky Socians will be randomly picked two days before Halloween. Be sure to check the blog and the official Facebook page to see if your address has been picked.

3.) On Halloween night, from 6:00 to 7:00 PM Socio time, I will visit the 10 Socians in their apartments. It’s important for the player to be there since I will ask the winning Socians to pick trick or treat. The prize will depend on the answer.

The 10 winning addresses will be announced a day or two before Halloween, so winners can fix their schedule in advance and can make time to be there in the game.  If you are not there within the time period, I will move on to the next address in the list and give your spot to another entry.

branwen-samiria-hanna12

You don’t have to be a couple to enjoy Valentine’s Day, and these fashionable friends have proved it! They had tons of fun through picking and matching their outfits and by spending time together at the park.

“Here we are, friends enjoying the park together. We chose our outfits to reflect the spirit of friendship for Valentine’s Day. Hanna and Branwen have on lovely pink shirts with heart symbols and Samiria is wearing a red cropped sweater. Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone!”

***

Solo Category: Branwen

branwen

Even though Branwen is in the Friends Category, she only wins the Solo Category of this contest. With her feminine and daring outfits, she definitely deserves it! :D

“Valentine’s Day is for everyone. It can be romantic love between couples, but also love for family, friends and everyone you meet! It is a day to spread love and happiness. Here I am getting ready for a day in town. I chose to wear pink because it is a soft gentle color and love should always be gentle. I added the boots with a splash of blue and a hat with a flower to remind us that spring is right around the corner! What’s this I see ? A gift for me? Who could it be from? What could be inside? A Valentine’s surprise!!”

Even though that outfit made her win the Solo Category, Branwen also sent another outfit. Great enthusiasm, don’t you think? It’s a pity not to see it, so here it is!

branwen_2

“Everyone will stop and take notice when you wear this sporty red outfit! I took my inspiration from the red and white traffic signs around town. This outfit is cool, comfortable and just right for a workout or a run. If you want to get noticed on Valentine’s Day, this outfit will be sure to stop them in their tracks!”

Winner: Aliciania

aliciania-2

“I’m wearing the Casual Xmas Jacket, Red Santa Cap and the Red Flat Boots (I’m also wearing the Red Shorts but you can’t see them because my outfit is covering it :P).

My reasons for this combination is, obvious, it’s red and white. Plus, the Jacket is the coolest one in town, fashionable, warm and totally Christmassy. The boots help me walk in the snow that’s going to fall pretty soon (latest by Christmas). And the Cap, well that’s to show the holiday spirit.

Merry Christmas, Socians.”

Great outfit, Aliciania! :D

The PR Giveaway winner will be in a separate post.

Fashion Contest: Thanksgiving Dinner

Winner: Michael22

michael22

I chose this outfit since it shows some colors of Autumn and the Thanksgiving comes in this season. It is a casual outfit and i think it fits best for a thanksgiving dinner gathering.”

For this outfit, Michael22 matched the Casual Stylish Shirt with the Casual Winter Boots and Pants. His Black Messy Sideways hairstyle fits his overall look. The colors and style make it a great outfit for Thanksgiving dinner. You can even unbutton your shirt a little if you had too much roast and pie. :lol:

Just find your sponsor and you’ll find your way in no time. They got you in town, you can bet they’ll stick through you… except when your rent’s overdue. :lol:

Kidding aside, it’s a good thing to remember them once in a while. Thanks for this entry, Alextechno. Good job!

Thanksgiving Giveaway!

Winner: Aliciania

thanksgiving-giveaway-winner

I would like to thank all my Socio buddies this Thanksgiving. Without them, I wonder whether I would have played the game for so long. I did try some other MMORPGs, but I failed to hold on to them. That’s where sociotown differs. So a huge thanks to all my friends out there… NingNing, Suzan1, Picket345, and so on many more. Meeting and hanging out with so many amazing people from so many corners of the world has been redefined by Sociotown. So thank you pals.”

And thank you too, Aliciania. Enjoy your new Wooden Kitchen Counter Set! :D
