Tomorrow, Tuesday 7/5:
Previews on the Facebook page, mid to late afternoon. Full listings up at the store by end of the night.
Trivia Contest #1 at 8:30pm eastern. Details below!
Stocking at the store at 2pm eastern
Trivia Contest #2 at 3pm eastern (details below).
I've brought in some really special fabric for this stocking, some of which was very hard to find and quite expensive (but this HP fanatic could not resist it and I am SO excited to be working with it!!) You will see that cost reflected in some of the prices. There will be a few prints priced at $40, while most will be at normal price points of $30-$33. Please let me know if you have any questions about the prices, and rest assured that as always prices have only been adjusted in direct response to the cost of fabrics. When I post previews tomorrow I'll list prices as well as fabric types.
Now on to the trivia contests! :)
Here are the official rules for the Harry Potter trivia contests which will be held live on the Facebook page Tuesday 7/5 at 8:30 ET and Wednesday 7/6 at 3pm ET (following the 2pm ET stocking). There will be a variety of questions – some are book centered and some are general or movie centered. They will progress from relatively simple to fairly difficult.
For all rounds of the trivia contests, once a player has submitted his or her answer, that is their final answer. In other words you may not delete your original answer or submit multiple comments (answers) for any single question. If you do, only your first comment will be counted.
The process and rules:
Round 1, for Slytherin - Open to everyone and will consist of 10 questions; Multiple players per household are permitted in this round. Each question will be asked one at a time. The first person to correctly answer the question will advance to round 2. Once a member of a household has advanced, all other members are asked to stop playing the round to keep it fair. That way there will be 10 unique households advancing to round 2. Once a player advances, we ask that player to sit the rest of the round out.
Round 2, for Ravenclaw – Open only to the 10 players who advanced from round 1. Any comments from anyone other than these 10 players will be disregarded and possibly deleted. Round 2 will consist of 5 questions. Again, each question will be asked one at a time. The first of the 10 participating players to correctly answer the question will advance to round 3. Once a player advances, we ask that player to sit the rest of the round out. 5 players will advance to round 3.
Round 3, for Hufflepuff – Open only to the 5 players who advanced from round 2. Any comments from anyone other than these 5 players will be disregarded and possibly deleted. Round 3 will consist of 3 questions. Each question will be asked one at a time. This first of the 5 participating players to correctly answer the question will advance to round 4. Once a player advances, we ask that player to sit the rest of the round out. There will be 3 players advancing to round 4.
Round 4, for Gryffindor – Open only to the 3 players who advanced from round 3. Any comments from anyone other than these 3 players will be disregarded and possibly deleted. Round 4 will consist of 2 questions. Each question will be asked one at a time. This first of the 3 participating players to correctly answer the question will advance to the final duel. Once a player advances, we ask that player to sit the rest of the round out. There will be 2 players advancing to the final duel.
Final Duel, for the House Cup – Open only to the 2 remaining players who advanced from round 4. Any comments from anyone other than these 2 players will be disregarded and possibly deleted. The Final Duel will be a best of 3 challenge. The first person to answer 2 questions correctly will be proclaimed the winner!
Tuesday’s winner will be awarded a prize that we’ve never offered before: the opportunity to purchase any one of the previewed diapers or custom slots before they are available for sale to everyone else. (One total diaper.) Free shipping will also be included with this purchase :)
Wednsday’s prize will be announced immediately following the stocking, just before the trivia contest begins! ;)
The fine print:
I know this goes without saying, but I want to mention something about good sportsmanship. During this contest, we ask everyone playing to bring an energy in line with the fun and interactive sprit we try to create at twinkie tush. With that in mind, please refrain from negative or unsportsmanlike comments. Any comments we define as negative or unsportsmanlike will be deleted and those making the comments will lose their eligibility to win. We all know the late Albus Dumbledore would frown upon any unruly behavior and so do we ;)
Wherein there is any possibility for interpretation of a correct answer, we will interpret accuracy and deem what constitutes a correct answer. For example – What did Dumbledore anonymously give Harry on his 1st Christmas at Hogwarts?
Possible correct answers would include:
- His father’s invisibility cloak
- The invisibility cloak
- Invisibility cloak
Based on our interpretation, possible incorrect answers would include:
- A cloak
- His father’s jacket
Please note that by entering the twinkie tush Harry Potter trivia contest, you agree to all above rules and regulations. And most of all agree to have fun! :)
That's everything I think! And remember, there might be a print or two that will surprise you, so if you don't have the HP love there may still be something for you at this week's stocking, including custom slots of course! ;)
See you tomorrow to kick off the fun with previews!!
