Anyway, my new giveaway will be in a different format. For this one, here's what you have to do to enter:
Write a personal sentence, paragraph, or essay on what got you into Pokemon, and caused you to keep loving it past childhood! Bonus points for before/after collection shots, childhood pictures, and a good amount of detail :) These will be put into a random number generator, BUT if I really really like or connect to your story I'll be offering a few small participation prizes to you ^w^
The number generator will pick five different entries, and then I will choose a 1-5 place for all of them. Here are the prizes:
1st place: 1 large sprite and a team of 6
2nd place: 1 large sprite
3rd place: team of 6
4th place: 3 small sprites or Trozei head
5th place: 1 small sprite
You can choose which pokemon you want at my discretion. For example I may say no if the large pokemon you choose is going to be over 20 inches long
Also, current commissions take priority! I won't be making these until I finish up my current orders.
Winners will be chosen after the comments stop once I post one reminder for this giveaway.
Here's an example of an entry :)
( Cut for a long personal story xDCollapse )
Anyway, comment below! Don't feel like you need to meet a particular length to have an interesting or "good" story- "I found a Pikachu on top of a vending machine and figured 'why not, let's collect Pikachu'" works just as well :P
Here are some examples of my work, and a link to my sales.

I'm also very interested in trades right now; plush, figures, customs, artwork, money, that all works~
EDIT: Thanks so much for all your entries :D I'll be posting results in a day or two, along with replying to the rest of your entries ^w^
