THE DOG & PONY SHOW

Auction Information

Basic Information

The Dog & Pony Show is a shopping event to feature new releases from our Teegle creator community and special guests that cater to various animal-related themes. Read on for more information about participating in our One Of A Kind auctions

What is a One Of A Kind Auction?

One Of A Kind means it has never been released before, it will never be sold again, and only ONE resident on the Second Life grid (the auction winner) will ever own it!
 

Our One Of A Kind auctions are a way for creators to bring their best, most unique, or most unusual work to ONE lucky winner, who will have something completely unique to them that they can cherish forever!
 

Our One Of A Kind auctions are very popular with our community! We highly encourage all interested creators to participate with one unique skin, mod, or accessory for Teeglepet or other animal avatars or pets!
 

All proceeds from your One Of A Kind auction will go home with YOU, so make sure you submit your BEST work, to get the highest bid you can! Winning bids in the past have ranged from 5-6k, all the way up to 250k lindens! 

What to Submit

So what should you submit for your One Of A Kind auction item?
 

This is a highly subjective question, but ultimately the name of the game is something that is distinctly, visibly unique.
 

What do we mean by that? The more a One Of A Kind creation is unlike anything anyone has seen before or can buy elsewhere, the more likely it will be to take home those highest bid values for you. Think as big as you can! Think out of the box! 
 

Creating a unique, named pet with a full body mod is highly encouraged. Auction items usually consist of full body pet mods with detailed markings that are rare, unusual, and highly coveted. But making a full body pet mod is not the only option; other examples might include: a unique carriage or barn, an animated hydra tail, a set of 6 dragon wings, a flaming hellhound, and more! 
 

Whatever you make, it should be your absolute best work. In these auctions, quality matters! Take your time and come up with something that is uniquely YOU!
