Cupid's Crush is the first of many hunts produced by Pocket Ginger Hunts.__________________________________________________________________________________________________
.::| Applications Open to the Public: December 1st, 2018
.::| Applications Close: January 7th, 2019 -- Applications received after this time will be placed on a waiting list for stores that drop out/are not setup for walkthroughs. You will receive more information about this in whatever notecard you are sent upon applications (acceptance or wait list).
.::| Hunt Theme: Valentine's and/or Anti-Valentine's Day |::. -- Because this hunt is taking place in February, we'd like to do a Valentine's theme while still allowing Designers relative freedom in their creations. Whether you fully embrace the lovey-dovey-ness of the season or you're more of a "Singles' Awareness Day" kind of person, Cupid's Crush can be interpreted in either direction. -- Items can be male, female, couple-oriented, accessories, clothing, skins, makeup, poses, etc. Anything will be considered.
.::| Cost: L$2 Hunt |::. -- For this hunt, we will be beta-testing a new feature in the system that we use for our hunts, where the Hunt Objects will split each sale between Designers and someone else. For this hunt, the Designer will receive L$1 from each sale of their hunt prize, and Pocket Ginger Hunts will receive L$1. We may or may not do future hunts this way, but we are assisting in beta-testing this new feature for this hunt, so you will be able to give us feedback on how it worked or didn't work for you.
