----- So, some of you guessed it, but yep, the event we're going to have is a Secret Santa
The old group did this last year, and we all thought it was a LOT of fun. Here's how this is going to work: Leave a comment below
if you would like to participate - and also state what your gift request is. Next Saturday, December 10th
, we will assign people their Secret Santas and send each of you a Note with your person and their request. Gift ideas must be simple
- not all of us can do complex stuff, whether for time or skill set reasons. You are limited to 1-2 YGO characters with a Christmas- or holiday-oriented theme.
This also gives the artists free rein to do what they want - cosplay photos, comics, fanfiction one-shots, traditional or digital drawings, etc. For example, my Secret Santa's idea last year was "Bakura in reindeer antlers." Short, sweet, and let me go nuts with ideas. You must be willing to give as well as receive.
If you find out later on that you can't complete your gift for whatever reason, please send me a note and we'll assign your person to someone else. Due date for gifts is December 24th. Submit your gift to the Secret Santa folder.
That way, we know exactly what it's for, and they're easy to find. Also, please send your assigned person a note so that they know they got their gift!
Because this is a little different than our usual contests, we will be relaxing the rule that all pictures MUST be YGOTAS-related
. To borrow the example from above, Bakura in reindeer antlers doesn't have anything to do with YGOTAS, but it was just fine for the Secret Santa. We ask that you keep your character choices limited to YGO. This change ONLY
applies to the Secret Santa, though - normal submissions that don't have anything to do with YGOTAS or LK's other projects will still get denied.
I think that about covers it - if you have any questions, we'll address them and add any further points to this as we go. I hope a lot of you participate; it's so much fun when we get a bunch of people!
