I actually completely forgot about this until Jason reminded me, but I figure we have plenty of time to make it happen. I think last year's Secret Santa was a great success, so I'm going to try and remember the details as best I can...

Lanterncast Secret Santa 2012

The rules are simple. You sign up here in this thread and list a few of your interests or likes. You don't have to come up with your likes right away, you can go back and edit your post later, just as long as you do it before names are picked.

The price limit is $10 bucks, but that does not mean you have to spend 10 bucks. You can make something, draw something, whatever really. The key is that you put thought and effort into your gift, that makes it much more special.

Sign-ups will go on from now until Decemeber 3rd, so you will have 1 week. This way everyone will know who they have with plenty of time to buy or make them something.

You should have your gift mailed out by December 17th, so you will have 2 weeks to buy or make something, and then it will have a full week to get to its recipient in time for Christmas.

Once names are matched up, you will also receive the address of the person you have at that time. Also, the assignment of names is completely random, so just because you have one person, that does not mean they will have you.

The bottom line is to have fun with it and put thought into it! The gift you give may be someone's favorite thing to open this Holiday season!

And I guess I should also say, I'm in! I may update my interests later, but for now I'll go with:

home-made items are awesome
I love Green lantern rings, so if you want to try and make me one, that's awesome. I have a lot of the ones out there already, but there are a ton of rings on Shapeways.com I don't have that can be ordered for under ten bucks (in plastic). I only have the Batjeepster Guardian/Oan ring from there. Or like I said, make one and I'm happy.

I love power batteries, artistic stuff made from re-used GL comics, cool GL art. I also like customizing vinyls, so there's that angle too Smile

I'm in like last year! How could I not do it? (Happy I saw this on facebook before I went to go jump in my bed and play dead for the night, Cyber Monday can go die when I have to work it at the stupid call center. )

Especially since I was super stealthy last year. I usually can't keep a secret. I am super proud of that. lmao

SO IN THOUGH.

Interests:
- Batman and his rogues (notably Harley Quinn pre-new 52... but you knew that, right? And my weak spot for Robins is well known, I think.)
- Doctor Who
- The Walking Dead (boop boop)
- homemade things (really, if you make me something, I will treasure it FOREVERRRR)
- Harry Potter
- ADVENTURE TIME! (come on, grab your friends, we'll go to very distant lands... with Jake the Dog and Finn the Human, the fun it'll never end, it's Adventure Time! lolol)
- too many other things (really, you could get me a box of tea bags and the tea connoisseur in me would be pleased. )

BONUS: If you can send me Josh Groban, Robert Downey Jr. or Jeremy Renner -- you win at life. (this is obviously a joke... sort of)

NO, PLZ:
- anything relating to vampires Neutral
- New Harley Quinn (reiterated because IT MATTERS, MAN)

Today is the last day to sign up! So far we have 11 people (I'll list the other 3 in a sec), so we have enough people to make this awesome. I'm just going to feel bad for the folks that forgot to sign up in time. So if you are thinking about it, decide today! Remember, it's a $10 MAX, so you can make something and just pay for materials and postage and make it, and it will cost less for those concerned with the money aspect. And now, the additional names for the folks that couldn't post:

Jason - of course he's in. Still waiting on a list of likes, although I do know he is partial to Sinestro

Christian (aka The Boy) - Also in. Again, no list of likes, but I know he sways more towards Larfleeze.

James - This would be the newborn James, my son. At two months old, his likes include drinking formula, getting changed and trying to pee on daddy. Dislikes include wet diapers, not being the center of attention all the time and sleeping at night. Honestly, he should be pretty easy since the only GL things he has are 2 onesies and the set of Little People including Green Lantern and Superman. He actually has 2 of those, and the other characters as well. Starting him young. He has no collections yet, so whatever you think a baby might like or want, go for it. I'll be helping him get or make his gift for whoever he gets Smile

18 Re: LanternCast Secret Santa 2012 on Mon Dec 03, 2012 7:05 pm

You already know that I'm in, so I guess I'll just put likes (In order of importance):

Nightwing
Larfleeze (duh)
Anything to do with the Batman: Arkham Asylum/City games
Halo (The video game, not the thing that hovers above my head)
Lego DC Superheroes
And Boba Fett

I think that's pretty much it.

Hi guys, I know I'm late to the party but I've confirmed with Choanata that I'm in.

I like all things Green Lantern related. I don't have any memorabilia so anything I get will be unique. I also have a 4mth old son that is ready to start his Green Lantern collection so something toddler-related would be great.

Unfortunately I am not an artist so I will probably get something for someone.

Ok, that's a great turnout! I'll be assigning names tomorrow, so if anyone else wants to slip in under the wire, you have until tomorrow morning. Until then, if everyone could pm me your address, that would be great. Just look for the little pm icon under my name where I post. Then I will reply with who you have, so remember to check your mailbox in the link near the top of the page!

Everybody should now have there Secret Santas, just check your pm folder.

Remember to keep it secret until they receive their gift, it's more fun that way!
