This new VIP plushie is the cat's meow!
July 22, 2014
Apologies for the short downtime there! We had to fix a problem with the Fashion Yurts charging the wrong amounts. If you'd purchased any of the custom wearable prize items (not the winning custom wearable items), you'll need to repurchase them, as Lindsay apparently wasn't doing her job properly before, and wasn't taking anyone's CSC. And then she was taking SP instead. You had one job, Lindsay.
A staff member will be around in the comments section to answer any further questions!
Hey! Just wanted to update you guys that the prizes for the custom wearable competition have been given out!
Now, we decided to make most of these prizes available to purchase in the Couture tab of the Fashion Yurts - that's the one that costs cash shop credits! This way, the prize winners get something good that will keep its value, and regular users that like to collect a variety of things get a chance to purchase these items if they like - albeit at a cost! We felt this was the best, or at least fairest, way to do things, seeing as those that didn't enter didn't get to see what the exact prizes would be!
Hey, beautiful people! (That's all of you!) We were just blown away by your entries for our little contest, and after much deliberation, we decided we couldn't just have 6 winners. And since our favorites were very much the same as your favorites, we've decided to instead have 10 winners - 5 that are just facial features, and 5 others!

Winners should find their free copy of their item(s) in their inventories, the rest of the prizes for participants will be given out later today! In the meantime, these winning items can now be found in the Fashion Yurts! Congratulations everybody! And thank you so much for making this a wonderful competition!
VIPs who have caught colds from that storm earlier today will be glad to know that there is some high quality, 4-ply, cashmere-infused tissues available for any of their dripping needs. There's brown paper towels for everyone else.

What a lovely day it's been! Well, for Tempest, at least. She's had a wonderful day playing with everybody at the festival, and has made lots of new friends. She wanted me to let you know that if ever she gets hit with the 'Monday Blues' again, she'll be back to play a bit more frequently than usual! Just keep an eye out for that heavy rain!
Oh goodness, there's just something about Mondays, isn't there? Poor Tempest has come down with a bad case of the blues. With so many people having fun at Peka-Boo, I suppose it seemed like the best place to come to play! You might find that you even see her around more often today, at Peka-Boo!
It seems like all this storm energy has made its way into some pets, too! The storm hipottu and storm archan have come to join this festival party! I wonder if the hipottu was drawn to the Hipottu Spice truck? Maybe it saw their truck mascot and thought it was a new friend! Oh goodness, but what is the archan doing here? I hope it stays away from Oatmeal!
Every VIP needs a companion!
Good luck to everyone who entered Battle of the Bands!

Excuse me there, it's not that I'm tired, it's just that I'm a little off key. Hahahahaha. Anyway, just wanted to stop by and remind you that you need to have your Battle of the Bands submissions in in just over an hour and 30 minutes time! If you're not in a band, don't worry too much (Oatmeal has enough on his plate!) - you can still participate in the finals by supporting your favourite band. Or booing at all the other bands. Although Lindsay might come along and fireman's lift you out of Peka-Boo altogether - have you seen that girl's abs?
Oh yes, speaking of Lindsay, she told me to let you know that voting for the Custom Wearable Contest will end tomorrow, and the winning items will be released into the Fashion Yurts on Tuesday! How delightfully charming. Good luck to all those participating, I suppose. Now can somebody in this VIP tent rub my feet?
The Cash Shop Loyalty Card is the latest feature to reward users for their continued support. For every 1000 credits you purchase through Paypal, PBC/UGC, or Stripe, you'll receive a shiny new stamp on it. There are five very special stamps you can earn as you make your way through the card, each with a reward item! There's even another that will earn you an elusive forum title.
Your purchases towards each stamp don't have to be made all at once! As your ongoing total reaches a level, you'll receive your next stamp. There will be new cards released from time to time - complete with new stamps and prizes!
The Loyalty Card considers all CSC purchases from Thursday, 17 July, onward as qualifying purchases.
In the spirit of moving forward with the Loyalty Cards, Bobblehead Collections will retire in one week. Cash Shop purchases made after Sunday, 27 July, will no longer come with a complimentary bobblehead. We hope you’ve had a chance to collect them all!
Need an acoustic guitar for your band? The Music Shop has you covered!
The electric piano has recently been made wearable!
Cuddle all night long with your very own Oatmeal beanbag, now in the VIP Lounge!
We saw that some of you were interested in the idea of having an achievement for having your own wishes granted, and lucky for you--we've been tracking that data since day one! A new achievement has been added for having 5 of your wishes granted. This will be awarded after the event, but that data has been logged and your previous wishes granted will count towards this. A prize will be added to the achievement before the event is over!

Keep that colorful hair out of your face with these headbands, VIPs!

Well good afternoon, festival goers! We sure do hope you’re enjoying the first full day of the Peka-Boo Festival! We’ve had a chance to grab a few hours of sleep, and we’re ready to celebrate with some new things for you to check out while you’re here.
First off, we are happy to announce that the Fashion Yurts are now open for business! Please come in and check out the very latest in festival fashion from your favorite designers. It took everything in my power not to snatch up their entire inventory immediately!
Also, keep your eye out for helpful volunteers who will be floating around, passing out some useful items for your sunburnt cheeks and parched lips. Consider them free gifts from us to keep you healthy and happy all throughout Peka-Boo.
Erm…speaking of keeping healthy, we’ve noticed litter beginning to accumulate on the festival grounds. This is so unfortunate! If you see any in your path, would you mind picking it up and holding onto it? We’ll be meeting later in order to try and determine how to best dispose of the mess. Stay tuned!
Finally, while we’re overjoyed with the kindness and generosity we’ve seen displayed at the The Wishing Shrub, we’ve had some of you approach us and admit that you may have made a wish that you now regret. Therefore, we’ve tweaked the rules a bit to allow you to cancel your wish if it has not been claimed after 2 hours. Wishes should start to be able to be cancelled around 5:00 pm today, if you’re interested in giving it another shot. We have also made it so you can only claim one wish at a time – this is all about spreading the love, right? – and so that if you grant a wish, but aren't able to decide on your own wish that day, your wish will still be available to be made the next day – cool, right?
I think that’s it for now – enjoy your weekend, everybody!
The first of the new daily treats for VIP members has arrived in the VIP Lounge, what a bargain!
There have also been some achievements for the event added, including two for visiting the VIP Lounge daily. Hardcore VIPs can earn an awesome autographed book for visiting the lounge every day! If you can only handle a few days of the festivities, there's still an achievement in it for you!
Cinthia's Quests is the weekend quest! Do those quests for increased prizes and special rewards!

Gracious, it's been a long day for us behind the scenes here at the Peka-Boo Festival! Who knew so many things could go wrong? First the Taco Truck broke down in the middle of nowhere (overheating! They should not have been testing their spicy recipes on the road in the burning sunshine!) and then we caught a green haired man trying to sneak into the grounds with a bag full of graffiti paint and a portable pizza oven - we're not quite sure what he was planning to do with it, but we've confiscated the paint and sent him on his way!
So we're off to a smidgen of a delayed start, but we have most everything in place now! You've been doing great with your Battle of the Bands submissions - keep them coming! Remember submissions will close at 11:59pm on Sunday July 20th! I'm sure you've all been working up an appetite with that frenzied instrument playing. Luckily our food trucks will be serving all night, and you can pay a visit to Oatmeal, the new resident golden goat, who will help you with all your worries. Or even stop by The Wishing Shrub, where you can grant wishes as well as make some of your own.
The Fashion Yurts will be open tomorrow, I've had a preview of some of the things inside and they're just darling - definitely worth the wait! Until then you can pick up some Peka-Boo branded merchandise from the Merch Tent, stop in at the First Aid Tent for some light pamphlet reading, or if you're a VIP maybe you'd like to relax in the VIP Lounge with Johannes (if you can find him!) and some sexy drinks.
And for those of you who are worried about missing out on festival achievements, feed those worries to Oatmeal! We're not starting any of the achievement tracking until tomorrow, July 18th (from 12:00am).
Now, I have some more work to do! There's more things to come mid-festival that need organising, I'll talk to you all again tomorrow!
Get that sunscreen on and make sure your hair is perfectly in place for Peka-Boo! There are two new dos for the event in the Token Shop!

And the entries are in! What amazing items we've had in over the past few days, you guys have some mad skills! Now what we're going to get you to do is start voting on the items so we can figure out the fan favorite of the competition. If you don't see your own submitted item here, I'm afraid that means that it was unfortunately not quite up to the standards we were looking for. But don't let that get you down - count this as practice for future competitions!
Click HERE to view the eligible items, and vote for your top 5!
In a few days time, once we have a good idea of what the favorite is, the winners will be released in with the rest of the festival clothing - and prizes will be given out! Happy voting!
*Note: Toggling your five choices to green counts as your submission - there is no submit button after that! This is so you can change your mind as much as you like up until voting ends!
The last of the VIP tickets have been stocked!
