Re: SECRET SCHNOZ 2017! Time for Presents!
« on: November 01, 2013, 04:16:00 AM »


The holiday season is officially underway! And what does that mean? PRESENTS! :schnoz:
Incantation and I decided to host a Secret Santa event here on the board. For those of you who aren't familiar, here's a summary of how Secret Santas work.


If you're interested in entering, please read the rules below, and then PM me and Incantation with the following information:

1. The address you'd like to have your gift delivered to (this info will only be seen by me, Incantation and your Secret Schnoz). You can also provide something in place of an address (Steam ID, email, etc) if you'd prefer a digital gift and/or want to keep your address private.
2. A list of at least 3 gift preferences. Don't leave your Secret Schnoz in the dark! :griffnotevil: Just don't ask for anything like a new laptop, ya goof.


SCHEDULE

Today -thru- November 15: Collecting entries - PM us to enter!
November 16: Incantation and I divide up the entries and randomly assign Schnozzes using a randomizing program (or a bunch of names in a hat...).
November 17: We send out the information to the Schnozzes so that they can buy/make gifts!
November 18 -thru- December 25: The gifts come rolling in! Don't forget to post pictures!!


Canty and I spent a lot of time mulling over an appropriate set of rules to make this fair for everyone. Please go over them if you'd like to participate:

RULES

1. 50 Post Participation Minimum This is a tough one, but we want to ensure a certain level of trustworthiness among the participants. If you don't quite have 50 posts yet, try to rack up your post count in time for the Nov 15 deadline!
2. $15 Price Minimum Feel free to get a single or multiple gifts that add up to $15! Keep in mind that this minimum doesn't include shipping costs. If you choose to participate, do so knowing that SK.net is an international community and you may or may not end up sending gifts to someone in a different country.
3. Handmade Gifts In the interest of fairness, we've decided that handmade gifts will be worth the amount spent on the materials. For example, if you want to create a Beherit out of clay for someone, you can subtract the price of the clay and paint from the $15 total. If you're into 2d art, I would recommend painting a picture and then putting it in a nice store bought frame! Sorry that it's so complicated, but we don't want to leave it open for any bad apples that might ruin the fun for everyone.

I hope we get lots of entries this year! Feel free to discuss the event, and post gift ideas in advance! :slan:

Hey guys, quick reminder that Grail and I will be closing up entries this coming Saturday, the 16th of November. There's still some time left to sign up!

Here's a closer look into my wishlist - http://www.skullknight.net/forum/index.php?topic=12587.0  :ganishka: *joking*

But seriously, I'd be more than happy if my secret santa pre-ordered this for me - http://www.skullknight.net/forum/index.php?topic=14097.0 :casca:

Awesome!! :guts: I'm so happy that you liked your presents! I had a feeling that you'd like something handmade. The shirt looks great on you!

Gobs and I loved our presents as well. We recorded a few videos while we were unwrapping, so we'll post those as soon as we can get them set up! :ubik:

Haha that tee art = awesome, Grail! Looking good Branded. Skull Knight would make a good Santa, come to think of it, riding quick in the sky with everyone's presents n dropping em off all hush-hush. Not sure if he's a milk n cookies kinda guy ^_^

My Secret Schnoz was Rhombaad! Dude, thanks a lot for the present, it's DAMN cool. I'm taking him back to work tomorrow, putting him on my desk so people know who they're potentially messing with if they get me mad *joking* ... wish that bag of cash was real :farnese:



Merry Christmas everyone.

Thank you so much to Branded and Incantation, who were very generous and gave us wonderful gifts this year. Here's the play-by-play so that you can see our reactions! :carcus:

First: Introduction

Gobs's phone ran out of memory before we could really get started, but here's a great shot of me blowing my nose.
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/A7O3RGqKmMw?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US&amp;amp;rel=0" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/A7O3RGqKmMw?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US&amp;amp;rel=0</a>

We switched phones and got the first part of Canty's gift:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/622Dm77wxmg?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US&amp;amp;rel=0" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/622Dm77wxmg?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US&amp;amp;rel=0</a>



Next: MANGOES
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/jfx12k_Ev7Q?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US&amp;amp;rel=0" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/jfx12k_Ev7Q?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US&amp;amp;rel=0</a>

I completely failed to realize that Incantation's most special gift was INSIDE the cryptic note he'd sent me! It's a lovely ink drawing of Casca. We're gonna have to frame this bad boy!


Next, we opened up Branded's presents:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/f2dtuyMjFow?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US&amp;amp;rel=0" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/f2dtuyMjFow?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US&amp;amp;rel=0</a>

Like me, Gobs managed to completely miss another terrific present! Here it is:

As a bonus, here are shots of him with his two new shirts.

Again, thanks so much to Branded and Incantation, we really really love our gifts! I can't wait to start reading my manga. :serpico:

Merry Christmas everyone.

I'm so glad you like it. Merry Christmas, IncantatioN!

My Secret Schnoz was Gobolatula! He gave me Escaflowne on Blu-ray and mini Casca and Puck figures. Thank you so much, Gobs! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year filled with Gigantomakhia and Berserk!

I'll post pictures later. I'm at my fiancee's house having Christmas dinner.

Branded, you good man, thank you very very much for the t-shirts and painting. You're the best. I'm wearing your brand shirt right now!

I also love the painting you made. I really appreciate you going through all the effort to make all these gifts.

Thank you so much!!

Also thank you to Incantation for the gift also.

This thing was a lot of fun. We gotta do it again next year.

Thanks again, Rhomb. This was a lot of fun, hope to do this again with you guys!

Hope you feel better Grail. Nose blow on cam was hilarious. Glad you liked it Grail and Gobs. I need to get better at wrapping things =_=' ... Kinokuniya didn't have volumes 5 and 6 at the time, so I couldn't grab em. But thanks to you I looked up and read the series ^_^.

Those are some sexy shirts you got there Gobs :ubik:

p.s. my hand-writing with a brush sucks, gonna remedy that for next time heh, I was referring to Shahs in my note.
