Masquerade Ball

What are you guys wearing to the Masquerade Ball? I think The secret judging is kinda cool. Im not going to compete though, I just want to be pretty. ^_^


~~~The below was copied from the onicon website~~~~

This year Oni-con will be rolling out the red carpet for its very first Oni-con Masquerade Ball. This event will be Friday night. Time TBA. It will be a night of costuming, music, dancing, and contests!

Mask Contest Photography
Costume Contest Contact & Questions

Mask Contest

A Mask Contest for the best masks!
Judging: For this segment during the masquerade, a secret judge will be deciding which will qualify as the best three masks and consolation prizes will be given to semi-finalists. This way we can make sure that the best masks are chosen. So, if you arent stage-friendly...dont worry, you will be credited for your creativity and not your stage presence (^_~).
Prizes: The prizes will be of a random assortment, anime related of course, and too make things a little more fun, the winners will be given a noble name tag. (i.e. King and Queen for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, Prince, Princess, Duke, Duchess, Count, and Countess, etc. for the qualifying runner ups. An example of a full noble name would be Gummi Bears Black Russian the Queen of Masks There may be more than 1 king or more than 1 queen or all 3 kings or all 3 queens if that is the way the cards are dealt. And if you would rather be a queen than a king or a duchess than a duke, you had better be ready to wear and play the part. (^[]^) Your public await your presence.
Costume Contest

A Masquerade Costume Contest for the best giddups!
Like the mask contest, the costume contest will be decided by the secret judge.
The costumes will not be judged on whether or not we can tell its from an anime, but rather how much effort and how awesome you can make yourself look! (i.e. You can do J-Rock, Renaissance, Gothic Lolita, Videogame, Anime, Anthro, etc., we want you to have a great time with this!)
Prizes will be awarded right after the mask contest and in the same fashion. An example of a full noble name in this category would be Ginger Snaps Peppermint Schnapps the King of Costumes. Of course, you are not limited to have sir names pertaining to sweets and alcohol, so that anything, as long as it is not lude, crude or socially unexceptable, before the King, Queen, etc. part is just fine.
Sabotage will not be permitted in either of these 2 segments of the masquerade ball, so please respect each others mask or costume, it reflects the hard work each has put into making it.

I'm in the same boat as a few people. If my mask is done, then I'll be there. I'll be a fancied up Moogle girl. I'm not sure whether I want to compete or not though.

That information is actually from last year's Masquerade Ball. This is year will be run slightly different, as the event has been given to me. . . very last minute. However, I'll still do my best to make it fun, and go by the same guide-lines. We're trying to find space, but I've already finished a wide array of tasteful yet danceable music, as the cheif complaint last year was that the music was ronchy, and not verry classy. It wasn't fitting to the event.

I'm working my hardest!

I was going to go as Masquerade!Paine, but thanks to Mugetsu work it's kind of been put on the back-burner. Maybe I'll still get it done, but if not, I'm still gonna have fun going just as Hee-Hee. ^_^
