I was very pleased last week, when I finally got to hold my two RL prints from the shoot I did with hawt avatar Veyron Supercharge. With their 40×60cm - 15×23″ - at 300dpi size they each look shiny, classical and utterly majestic. I ordered two, one for me to hang - number 2/2 engraved in the tree - and one to put up for sale on vintfalken.com. So it’s number 1/2 that will be for sale here.
Both details of the photograph shown here are ‘true size’, reverting the 300dpi to 72dpi. It’s not framed as else postal fees would be enormous and I’ve noticed taste may differ as it comes to framing. (I want to put mine in a nice old, baroque like frame, but my RL auntie said that’s ugly and does not do the print any justice. :/)
Some Rules for auctioning off Veyron:
- Bidding will be done in L$. Why so? Doesn’t it sound better something sold for a few K than for a few dollards? ;) I prefer in-world payment, but paying me using paypal is also possible, with the following exchange rate: 1USD = 265L$ = 0.68 euro.
- Postal fees are NOT included in the bidding. For the Benelux & Europe those are 2300L$. For the USA and the rest of the world those are 3400L$.
- Starting bid is 7500L$, postal costs not included. If I don’t reach that amount, ah well, it may function as thingie to put the beers on or smth. (I have number 2/2 to hang up already.)
- Bidding will end on Monday December 17th at midnight my time. Which is 3PM PST.
- If the person who won the auction retreats for any reason, the photograph will go to the runner up at the price that person specified.
- Bidding goes as follows: In the comments, say ‘I bid 8000L$ + 2300L$ (Benelux) which totals at 10300L$’. It is the 8000L$ that counts. So if someone bids 7500L$ + 3400LS (USA) which totals at 10900L$, the person from the Benelux still wins. Use your full avatar name and leave behind a valid e-mail address.
- I’m sorry, but I will need a RL address to ship to. I do promise to just send the photograph and then remove the address from my inbox, chatlogs and memory without telling someone. ;)
- If the amount it sells for would exceed 15k L$, I’ll buy Veyron Supercharge a new outfit. If it would exceed 20k L$, she’ll get a pair of shoes to go with that. ;)
Veyron Supercharge - super model in this photograph - ’sweetens’ the stakes:
Yes you can now own Veyron. Well, at least a photo of Veyron from that uber photographer, Vint Falken. It’s a real life high quality photo Vint took of yours truly. But that’s not all, I’ll sweeten the pot by offering an in world shot of me with the winner of the auction. But that’s not all! I’ll wear whatever you want in my inventory, or if you have something in mind, whatever you want to supply…. Think of the possibilities here…. Hmmm….
I think that also means you can ask her to wear the outfit you supply, even when it’s only a tattoo? *tempted to bid herself* =D
