    Default Masquerade Week (May 28-June 3)

    MASQUERADE WEEK



    Masquerade!
    Paper faces on parade.
    Masquerade!
    Hide your face, so the world will never find you!
    Masquerade!
    Every face a different shade.
    Masquerade!
    Look around -
    there's another
    mask behind you!
    -The phantom of the opera

    From May 28th to June 3rd, don your mask and come to the Playground Ball! This week is for showing, requesting and discussing avatars for Masquerade week, which was elected official next theme week in the Playground.

    If you’re disappointed because you thought it would be this kind of Masquerade… hey, you can do that too. We are all for creative interpretation of theme weeks.

    Enjoy!

    First, I'll need an idea for an avatar for this theme week before I can request one. Fortunately, it's not for a while.

    I'm going ahead and making my request now with my original avatar for reference.



    I'd like something in a (formal if possible) 'Zorro' style for him. Complete with hat.
    No musical instrument this time please.
    Have him with a green-hilted rapier.

    It's hard coming up with a good idea. Knowing myself, at the very last minute, I'll throw my hands in the air, say "[REDACTED] it all, I can't go wrong with more Lovecraft" and do something King-in-Yellow-like.

    And remember when I said that I didn't have any ideas for anything except possibly Aquatic Week? It turns out that that wasn't quite accurate... I need to finish discussing things with Lea before making my request, but I'll definitely be getting something for this week.

    ...I'm quite possibly going to pay homage to the Dresden Files (since Chiyoko's from a game of the RPG), and have her do the 'Vampire: The Masquerade' interpretation.

    In other words, dress her up as a vampire.

    A cheesy vampire.

    I'm thinking of going for a tradition formal outfit with a long opera coat and a jewel encrusted mask.
    I'm just having trouble working out the finer details of my request and phrasing it.


    Edit: Done.

    After much thought concerning colour schemes and whether or not I should wear sequins, I have finally come up with a concept for my outfit for the upcoming masquerade ball.

    ---------
    Spoiler
    Show


    Could someone with the necessary skills please craft me an Order of the Stick style avatar of the above with the alterations described below?

    -Firstly: I'd like to be dressed in full, midnight blue evening wear with a full length opera cape lined with gold silk. And instead of a top hat, could I please get a plain black fedora?
    -Secondly: Remove the lightning. Lightning has no place at formal events. However, keep the sword.
    -Thirdly: I'd like my ever-faithful raven familiar to be flying behind me, holding a gold pocket watch in his talons.
    -Fourthly: Because it's the primary requirement of this particular week, I'll need some kind of mask. I'd like a plain white masquerade mask encrusted with dark purple amethysts around the eyes.

    And as for the pose, I'd like the sword in my right hand, held in a non-threatening way while my left hand holds my mask in place.
    A neutral expression would be preferred. But if not possible, a slight smile will do.


    Thanks in advance.
    And I'll try and fit signature credit in my signature somewhere.
    Damn one thousand character limit...

    Well then, I'd like to respectfully request a version of my original Fred avatar in a black tuxedo (a la James Bond), preferably still wearing the helmet and a regular eye-mask-thingy.


    Many pleases and thank yous to the wonderful avatarist who does this for me.

    Hexadecimal is the best villain ever.
    And she's definitely enough of an eldritch abomination, despite not appearing as such. I'd say go with that. But I'm biased because I'm such a huge fan of the show.
