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.

image-contest-formation-banner

Thanks to Karim667 for this awesome (old but good) screenshot

There’s always creative and fun stuff made when you’re with friends. And for this Image Contest round, you’ll need the help of at least five!

Gather at least 5 friends (at most 10) and put your heads together to create an awesome formation! You and your friends could form a straight line, a square of sleepy heads or a full circle — whatever creative formation stuff that you guys can think of! It’s also up to the group if you decide to wear identical outfits or a costume, or do an action (dancing, sleeping, sitting, etc.) while in formation.

One member of the group will have to snap a screenshot and send it to my email address at dawn@sociotown (dot) com, with the subject Image Contest: Formation and the full SocioTown names of all the Socians in the image. Deadline is on March 31, 2014.

Once you have joined a group for this, you’re not allowed to be in another team or formation. Try asking new players so your group can reach 5 or more. :)

Depending on the number and quality of entries, there will be one or two runner-ups. The winning entry will have 75 SoBucks for each member, and 50 SoBucks for the runner-ups. Woah-wee! :D

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!”
