Treat yourself to a spook-tastic shopping spree with these Halloween items!

**NEW**

new-halloween-items

Below are the charts for each store (Trendiiz, Gee Cue, Franklin’s Furniture, Low-Mart). Items this weekend (from Saturday, October 25 to Monday, October 27) are mostly for Permanent Residents. Items scheduled for October 27 to 31 are mostly for everyone. If you missed an item, don’t hesitate to request for it again; I will put it up again in the stores ASAP. If an item is out of stock, you can immediately send me a notice so I can restock it. :)

*The Purple Witch Dress has caused some store problems, so unfortunately it has to be removed from the store.

Halloween Contests!

halloween-contests-banner-2014

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.

***

halloween-ball-small

Waltz your Halloween night away with your lovely and charming, albeit spooky, Halloween costumes! Here are the contest details.

1.) Come up with a Halloween costume for the contest. Follow the theme, which is Halloween Ball, to increase your chances of winning.

2.) Snap a screenshot of your costume. Here is a handy tutorial found online. Make sure that your image is clear and the outfit can be properly seen. You can either snap a screenshot by viewing your online profile or by using Theater Mode in the game. (Send me a message if you have any questions regarding taking a screenshot, online profiles or theater mode).

3.) You can join these categories:

Solo Scare - For those who want to join the contest alone.

Candy Couple - For those who want to join the contest with their special someone.

Fearsome Friends - For those who want to join the contest with their best friend or with a big group of friends (limit of four participants in an image only).

You can join all the categories, but you can only win in one.

4.) Send your entries to my email address at dawn @ sociotown (dot) com. Include the category you’re joining, full SocioTown name(s) and the Permanent Resident status of the participant(s). Example below.

Name: Dawn
Category: Solo Scare
Status: PR

5.) Each category will have a winner. Depending on the number of PR and non-PR entrants, there will be a winner for each status too. Winners will get 150 SoBucks each.

image-contest-scare-your-sponsor-small

Time to get creative with your images! This time, you have to scare your Sponsor!
