Hey all Tribes, Soot Sparrow here.
This thread is a preview thread for the "Costume Party" portion of our upcoming "T.G.I.Flotsam" shindig chat/party that's coming up on FRIDAY, AUGUST 5th, 9pmEST/6PM PST
Mark your calendars. As with all of the other pre-Poison City parties, this one is open to all, so please come by and say hello.
I will be posting the live link to the Meebo chat in this thread a little while before the party starts on Friday.
We decided to have a costume based party of sorts, so folks will be posting their "costumes" during this coming week that they will be wearing to the party (both real and imaginary) here, with some brief comments on the concepts behind them. We will also be having a costume contest with two categories: "BEST COSTUME" and "BEST COSTUME THAT USES FLOTSAM/CARGO". I will be the acting judge for the competition.
NOTE: The Costume Contest is now open to all tribes.
But this is just a preview thread
, meaning save your comments for the actual party. If you have something you are dying to say about a costume, come to our party and say it "live"!
I'll be patrolling this thread and deleting non- costume posts, so don't be surprised if your catty comment gets blitzed! Save it up and be catty right in front of us at the party; WE LOVE THAT! : )
17 Hills artists will also be posting some of the invites they have fashioned.
And now, in keeping with the spirit of the party, here's my costume that I've whipped up for the event. I'm dressed as Thomas Dolby from the "Hyperactive" video
, which I'm sure you're all familiar with. I had to use a glove full of Vaseline to get my hair to stand up like that!
Watch this thread for more 17 Hills costumes as the Tribe completes them, then join us for our party this Friday!
