PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST @ TRUBBLE

The store has had the beginnings of a sneaky makeover. So first I wanna apologise for its emptiness.

It’s still a work in progress, and for the next part I NEED YOU!

Your task, should you accept, is to push your photography skills to the limit. Really work those cameras…. get into photoshop or gimp and touch up, effect, shake and mold those pictures… and create a picture for our boards. In store we have 6 boards… 2 near the windows, 2 near the back wall vendors and 2 outside.
These boards will be used to display the 6 top places.

The winners will also recieve –

6th, 5th and 4th place – 250L gift card
3rd place – 500 L gift card – and 100L cash
2nd Place – 1000L gift card and 500L cash
1st place – 5000L gift card and 1000L cash

Entry is free and open to all, but I do ask that you follow these few rules.

1. Please send 1 entry per person to Tracy Rubble by midnight slt on the 18th May 2009.
2. Please ensure your picture is full perms.
3. Entries MUST be photographs of yourself wearing a current outfit from the store.
4. Please incorporate your name into the picture on the top left hand corner along with the name of the outfit that you have selected.
5. Please ensure anyone else in the picture are also wearing a trubble design (except for men)
6. Make sure that your picture is high quality, but submit as a png file or tga file at a size no larger than 512×512

Have fun, be creative… make sure it is your best work and send the finished file to Tracy Rubble by midnight on the 18th June… entries after this date will be discarded.
Please name the file ##Trubblemay09 {your name} so that I can find it in my inventory.

Good Luck

P.S. This will not be a “popularity contest”. Entries will be judged by a panel of independent people. Results will be announced in the group and on https://trubbleinsl.wordpress.com on the 30th May 2009.

More fun stuff

As promised, I have added the last of the fun stuff to the store for now. By popular vote, midnight madness has hit Trubble, starting with Ginnie for free… Remember the prize will change daily if won, as will the number of people who can get it free.

Plus, I have added an easy way of getting something, Pick’s win prizes… Slip us into your picks by heading into your profile, onto the picks page and clicking New. All done so long as you are in the store when you do it. Then touch our picks for prizes board… and poof…. 1 free gift… todays in 100L gift card!!!
Don’t miss out… this is going to get fun…. I will be hiding a 1000L gift card in one of the games at a random time over the next couple of  days, so keep your eyes peeled or subscribe to our mailing list ( also getting something free for doing so) to get hints.

I’M NOT DEAD… JUST FLOATING

I recieved a rather worrying IM this morning so I decided to clear something up….

[2009/03/12 8:38]  random friend: (Saved Thur Mar 12 01:41:16 2009)ARE YOU DEAD OR SOMETHING? WHERE ARE YOUR RANDOM IMS?

Reading this over a coffee… that promptly got choked on… made me realise how oddly quiet I’ve been… so I thought it was a good idea to let you all know that I am very much still breathing… and working on some new things.

I’ve been trying to get out some new lines for months, but since I am the queen of procrastination it hasn’t happened… until now.

I’ve been working hard in my little studio and getting ready a nice new range of accessories including flowing scarves and other bits and bobs. I’ve been learning to create shoes, and I’ve been working through my textures to get prepared for some hair creation! So it’s all go go go.

Now due to primage, the hair will be going in its own store…which will be under the Trubble brand… so it needs a name!!!!!! That’s where you come in….

I need suggestions for the name… which must include the name Trubble… so Trubbleforhair or along those lines.

Send suggestions on a notecard to Tracy Rubble, and name it…

Trubble hair suggestion {your name}.

The best one will be used for the new store…. and the person who suggests it will win… not one… not two… but the complete first line of Trubble Hair…
Grand Opening, and other details will be confirmed soon so… get suggesting and watch this space!!!!!
