Femboy Hunt creator rules =UPDATED February 2018=

▨ ▨ Femboy Hunt Creator Rules ▨ ▨

Here are the rules for creators. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Taki Kujisawa via notecard. You can also leave notecards in one of the mailboxes at the NOP~ Events Mall & Events Headquarters.

▨▨ The Rules:

▨ This is a femboy, non-binary gender hunt. Items for all mixes of or lack there-of are welcome, but please keep femboy, androgynous, neutrois and non-binary genders in mind. Flat chested, no boob shading, etc are highly encouraged.

▨ If your item has breast shading or mixed genitalia (breast shaping and bulge for example), you MUST put this on your ad, or make sure it shows both in the pic. It must be obvious what the hunter is receiving, we want to make sure hunters know exactly what they are getting. For example, if you are creating a mesh formal dress, and it has breast shaping and bulge, be sure to put text on the ad with something like 'For ladyboys and futa!' etc.

▨ Most hunters are looking for androgynous items such as hair, makeup, accessories, and especially items for Maitreya body and the V-Tech mod. If you haven't started creating for this mod yet, you need to!

▨ Any rating is welcome, but please be tasteful and have fun! ❤
(We know everyone's idea of 'tasteful' is different, but don't be an arse about it.)

▨ ABSOLUTELY NO CHILDREN'S STORES OR ITEMS ACCEPTED.

▨ Items must reflect the style and quality of your store. We expect you to offer our hunters your best quality. Think of this as a dollarbie to introduce your brand and entice them back!

▨ Your items cannot be resells, Business in a Box, copies or copybotted items of other's creations. They must be YOUR OWN creation, and they must be a new item, or can be an exclusive recolor of an old item.

▨ Templates, mesh kits, original mesh and original textures are welcome! Use of templates and creator kits cannot be right out of the box. It must be customized and a new creation of your making. Tinting mesh with texture maps on do not count. Mods are allowed so long as the original maps are given with permission. (If you use template mesh and pre-made textures, we ask that you use one or the other, so the creation is new and unique.) If you make mesh clothes from builder kits, etc, then make sure to add a prim so you show as creator, or upload the DAE file. Putting another creators item as is in the hunt is NOT PERMITTED.

Anyone using any work without permission, or using copybotted mesh, etc, will be dropped from the hunt, banned from joining again, reported and the original artist/creator will be contacted to take action as they see fit. We've had trouble before with copybotters and stolen artwork. I'd rather kick it in the bud sooner rather than later.

▨ Please stick to the theme. If you offer a tattoo of snowflakes, and the theme is for example, bubblegum, this does not suit the theme and you will be asked to offer another =NEW= item or be removed from the hunt.

▨ ADS OF ITEMS ARE REQUIRED. This is not a free hunt, so you must make an ad to post on the blog for hunters. You MUST send in your own ad of the item you are creating. If you do not, you will not be included in the promotions and may lose your spot in the hunt. We -will not- make your ads for you. Again, pictures/ads of the items ARE REQUIRED.

▨ If your store moves, or you go offline for a long period of time, we will not chase you down. We do not have time to run around the grid finding your store because you forgot to update us. If your store disappears with no word from you, you will be dropped. It is your responsibility to keep us updated.

▨ Full permission items are allowed, so long as YOU are the original creator.

▨ If you sell art or photos, YOU must be the original artist, and able to prove you are the original artist. You may not under any circumstances sell someone else's art or photographs. Creative Commons is allowed, but be prepared to prove CC license. Again, would rather kick it in the bud now, rather than later...

▨ All sponsor slots are first come first served. Sponsorship is non-refundable.

▨ If you don't understand something, please feel free to ask!


*This list has been created from feedback from hunters in previous events. All items at the event are subject to minimum quality standards at the discretion of hunt coordinators.

=What is a Femboy? Trap? Huh?= [Updated 02-2016]

For those who are not familiar with who femboys, andros, traps or other persons of alternate gender are, here are some examples and explanations.

NOT ALL THESE PICS ARE CONSIDERED SFW. It depends on your definition of what is safe and what is not.

Three notes:
1- 'Genderqueer' (also called non-binary or gender-expansive) is a catch all for anyone who does not identify as strictly masculine or feminine, and are considered to be outside the gender binary and cisnormativity, so everyone on this list would go under this umbrella term.
2- Many of these gender identities overlap and blur into others, no one is a 'perfect' example of just one thing as we are all unique, have different styles and cannot be stuffed into a neat little box. ^_^
3- All these definitions are in the simplest terms possible and are not all encompassing of each. We put them in these terms so everyone can understand them.

(Cisnormativity: Cisgendered persons are people whose gender identity matches that of the sex they were assigned at birth.)

*Femboys are males who are more effeminate, sometimes in their mannerisms, physical body, or dress, often blurring the line between male and female. (Note: Femboys are NOT twinks.)

--Example 1
--Example 2
--Example 3

*At first glance, the physical gender of someone who is andro is not obvious or obviously defined. Andro is short for androgynous.

--Example 1
--Example 2
--Example 3

*Traps can be male or female, but are often mistaken as the opposite so it's a surprise when you find out they aren't. For example: A femboy can be a trap, if he is so pretty that people mistake him for a girl. On the flip side, a tomboy can be a trap also.

--Example 1
--Example 2
--Example 3

*Transgenders are not traps, they are mentally and/or physically the gender they identify with, regardless of whether their physical matches their mental identity.

--Example 1
--Example 2
--Example 3
--Example 4

*A person of Alternate Gender (also known as genderqueer) is anyone not strictly male or female as defined by society. This can be someone who cross dresses, is a trap, femboy, androgyn, futa, shemale, sissy, transgender, etc.

--Example 1
--Example 2
--Example 3
--Example 4

*A sissy is a male who adopts hyper-feminine behaviors, cross dresses and engages in stereotypical "feminine" activities, including taking on the "submissive female" role in a relationship. (Not all sissies are transgender.)

--Example 1
--Example 2

*A Tgirl looks exactly like every other girl, but has a little extra down below... usually a lot extra, actually.

*Futa is short for futanari, which, in the hentai community, is a dick girl. A being that has the body of a female and the genitalia of a stallion (i.e. REALLY BIG) and extremely large breasts.

*A ladyboy is a male who naturally has all the attributes of a woman except for the plumbing. Some ladyboys do not need surgery or makeup to look like a woman, nor is there a need to try and sound like a woman as it is all natural for them. Some are considered transgender and can be taking hormones or had breast augmentation to create a more feminine body.

*Kathoey is the Thai term referring to either a transgender woman or an effeminate gay man. Kathoeys still have their male parts along with breasts, and are often perceived as belonging to a third gender.

*A hermaphrodite is a person who has both male and female genitals and secondary sex characteristics. The word INTERSEX has come into preferred usage for humans, since the word hermaphrodite is considered to be misleading and stigmatizing.

*Neutrois is a term that has many meanings. It is a non-binary gender identity that falls under the genderqueer or transgender umbrellas. You can read more here: http://neutrois.com/

Please note, sexual preference has nothing to do with gender identity. Femboys, traps, androgynous, transgender and all other forms of alternate genders can be any sexual orientation, regardless of how they dress or appear outwardly.

Always be respectful of each other's identities. It can be difficult at times to know a person's identity if you are meeting them for the first time. If you are not sure of a person's gender identity, take cues from their friends, or you can politely ask in private what their preferred pronouns are.

I have also linked to blogs, but be warned, some pics are graphic and Adult in nature. The links to individual pictures we've supplied are all artistic and work safe ^_^v
