Important note about being late:

  • We do not accept lateness and we are serious. No negotiations, no extensions.
    • Just speak to past Hocus Pocus and XOXO participants who were late and wasn’t included in the guide.
    • You have a RL, we organizers do too.
  • There are no refunds so please make sure you CAN commit to the dates.
  • The date is not a mystery to you. Please prepare for emergencies.
  • If you are not setup by the time we do our walkthrough on Oct 23rd, 11pm your store will not be included in the HUD or gallery. No negotiations, no extensions.
  • We understand that things happens and we will accept all and every excuse. However, if you are late, you are late and this rule is non-negotiable for whatever reason.



  1. Theme is guide only. Basically, make whatever you want! 😀
  2. No copyright or IP infringing materials — either in your store or with your Hocus Pocus item. You’re not new to business in SL, so this should be common knowledge!
    • Just because a texture is on Google Images doesn’t mean it’s free to use.
    • Check license.
  3. Application fee is 350 — pay only after you receive your confirmation.
  4. Hocus Pocus item must be priced at 50L throughout the duration of the event. No more, no less.
  5. The win probability must be set at 30% and above, no less.
  6. The item sold MUST be the same item as the prize. The idea is to give customers a chance to get it for free or for 50L.
  7. New or recoloured only — please do not set an existing item as your Hocus Pocus item.
  8. Only ONE item per store. It can be a new single item, or one item priced at 50L from a new set of releases. Take advantage of this event to make a mainstore release. 🙂
  9. Make sure the vendor is in clear view to your customers or easily found. It’s not really a hunt, so let’s not torture them. XD
  10. Feel free to do whatever you wish with your item after Nov 4th (put it for full price, set it as group gift etc, retire it), but not before.
  11. If you plan on retiring your item, please let us know so that we can include that in the advertising.

A note to template users:

Please make sure your template provider(s) allow for the item to be given away as freebies or sold for under 50L.

  • Make sure to read their TOS.
  • If you need a Release/Info Letter from us to send to the Full-Perm Meshmaker, please let us know. However, we cannot guarantee that they will agree to it.
