Hey there, looks like you just wandered in. Why not have a look around and stay for a while, maybe even start your own adventure, if you're into that.

Nico's First Dress Up Contest!

You enter Nico’s tent to find a flurry of abandoned sketches and a
crowd of mannequins wearing half-finished garments. They’ve been
hard at work on their latest designs, but the collection
just isn’t coming together the way they had hoped.

Welcome to Nico's First Dress Up Contest! Why don't you help give them some inspiration with your outfit styling prowess?

  • This type of contest is run by our Community Managers and will occur around once every month or every two months with about a 2 week break in between contests.
  • Thematically, we created this contest type in order to be able to hold staff run forum contests independant of larger overarching events and to be able to hold them on a more regular basis!
  • The first batch of Polished Button participation prizes will be sent out on the 3rd day of the contest on February 25th at 7PM DVT.

Welcome to Nico's Prize Boutique, the shop that takes currency exclusively obtained in staff forum contests.
  • This shop will be a permanent fixture in Peddler's Port.
  • Its currency is Polished Buttons, which are tradeable.
  • More items will be added to its stock with each contest, including recolours and other variations!

There are 4 new clothing items in Nico's shop! ​​​​​​
Aurora Butterfly Headband, Woodland Garland, Gardener Cardigan, Cloud and Star Backdrop

This new pet is hatched from the new Cracked Monocle hatching item in Nico's shop.
We hope you have fun participating and will be keeping a close eye on feedback to improve on this contest type in the future!

Thank you so much for playing and supporting Dappervolk.
We'll be back with more updates soon!
