The Irmenuan Masquerade Gala

To celebrate the return of Irmenu to the galactic trading stage after almost a year of absence, Prince Bælfir Yosoth, Warlord Protector of Irmenu and Pretty AF Sith, would like to cordially invite you to a decadent celebration of fashion and over-indulgence.


Behold, Totally Not Manaan Irmenu

Location: Bælfir's Manaan SH.


Time and Date
Server: Saturday, March 10th, 5pm til late
Australian: Sunday, March 11th, 12pm til late
(The early start is on purpose - want to be as accessible as possible, so that people may come and go over the course of the evening as they please.)

Faction: Both. No fightin'. Remember your '/me' emotes won't be seen cross-faction :)

Dress Code: Formal, extravagant, fancy, outrageous! Headgear that covers your face to some extent is a must.

For SH Invites:
Imperial: Whisper Bælfir (Alt code 0230) or Sèlaan (Alt code 0232).
Republic: TBA
Can't finds us?: Drop a line in RepublicOOC or ImperialOOC, we'll get t'you :halo:


There will be novelty prizes for:

Most Creative Ensemble

Best Ridiculous Get-up That Actually Works

Best Use of Dye

Most Impressive Cheap-Ass Outfit (No orange or purple items used!)



Rules

- For extra thematic fun, please have your nameplates turned off at the event.

- A decent bar-fight is all in good fun, but if violence breaks out those characters would likely have to be escorted off the property ICly. So keep it entertaining, but light. Only one Force-choke each. :P

- There will be an allocated area for the ball itself, but you are welcome to wander off and RP elsewhere in the Stronghold for privacy, or check out my dank minimalist set-dressing. (read: I am not rich, so the whole place is not decked out :P )

- That said, this is an All Ages event, so please do not ERP anywhere in the Stronghold. Not even in Bælfir's bedroom.

- Bælfir still represents the Valefor. Do not come to this event to throw around 'rawr Valefor traitors to Empire rawr'. I am not interested in spending the entire event explaining for the umpteenth time why the Valefor are not traitors, to deaf ears. You will just be thrown out. :halo:

- Out-Of-Character bullying or drama will not be tolerated, and result in an immediate ban from the SH.

Hey kids! This one's coming up in just under a week now, woo-wee!

Sign up if you haven't yet, though it's not compulsory I like to be able to see the numbers ;D

Please expect both a vague 'program' of the event and a couple other things in the coming week leading up to the event :)

Also looking for a Republic-side attendee to be able to hand out invites! If you think this could be you, PM me~  :halo: :lightside:

Yay yay it's today! For both Americans _and_ Aussies, now :D

Republic Attendees
If you would like to bring a Republic-side toon, we don't have an official invite-rer. So hop on Imp and whisper Bælfir (or drop a line in OOC if I'm on an alt) with the name of your pub-side toon, and I'll hop over to deliver a quick one.


Prizes!
Prizes for the listed categories are a surprise until after the fact. ;) Only clue; not in-game items.

When you arrive
If no one is there to greet you at the platform, just head on through to the lift and take it to the 'Rooftop Garden', where the event will be taking place in both the interior and exterior rooms there :)

Soundtrack
Here is a playlist I've made to set the mood! @Mei will also be providing some additional music for when her character's performances are up:

Singing: "Dark Waltz" https://youtu.be/XS-fBWGtd5s 
Synth-Viol: "Warm Air" https://youtu.be/41T6_od8lAI 
Dance: "Yearning" https://youtu.be/sxQjtwML-ko


See you all there! :aww:

THANKS EVERYONE!

It was great turnout, and it was a blast!

I had a lot of fun greeting and tending bar for you all on my awkward little Selaan in her unfortunate uniform. And a special shoutout to whoever plays Ash'ette -- thanks for hanging out and chatting with my lil' awkward redhead. She very appreciated a cute Twi'lek taking time to be chill with her!

COMPETITION WINNERS WOOOOO~

So, we had to drop one category - The 'Most Impressive Cheap-Ass Outfit' - because no one qualified, but other than that WOW. Such pretties, very win. Here are the winners of the costume comp:


Most Creative Ensemble



I was absolutely in love with this the moment I saw it, @Mei ! :aww: Each part works so incredibly well to make up the whole,and though you can't see them too well in this image the black fin-like material up the sides of her arms really polishes it off.


Best Ridiculous Get-up That Actually Works


@Orell , I'm really not sure what's going on here, but you pulled it off, man.  :grin:
I'm pretty sure this is one of those dyes that everyone previews every now and then just for a laugh. It looks like something that maybe a kid vomited up after eating some crayons. And yet - maybe it's the outfit choice, or the gold decoration on the skirt matching the yellow - and the way the mask binds to the dye - but it just works somehow. Well done.



Best Use of Dye

This is apparently just sum green leg-piece I've never seen before - or at least, it looks ugly usually, and damn fine with this inky, bloody-red dye on. I LOVE this outfit @Noth , as it is, but the dye-job really polishes it off for me. It also really added to her character, and I don't think the outfit would've had the same impact without that colour combination.



As for your prizes - You each are going to get a chibi bust of your character all glammed up for the gala, drawn by yours truly.  :halo:

Thanks again EVERYONE for coming. Your company and your outfits were all amazing - this was a hard trio to choose. I'll have to up the stakes at the next one! :aww:
