Please join our WEEKLY Themed Costume Contest! Thursdays at 9 pm Eastern in Kallisti Wharf!

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Every Thursday at 9 pm Eastern/6 pm Pacific, we'll be holding a 100 million influence themed costume contest on Excelsior! Bring heroes and villains to Kallisti Wharf to get your piece of the prizes!

 

All levels welcome, so if you have a character you love on some other server and don't want to transfer them, you can simply save your costume and roll them on Excelsior. Kallisti Wharf is enemy-less and reachable from Atlas Park via the tram and from Sharkhead via the Sub.

 

Unless noted, top 4 get big prizes, and each judge picks a personal favorite as a runner up. Hope to see you there!

 

Here are the themes from past weeks: (behind spoilers so you can choose whether or not they take up space)

We’ve put together over 2 billion inf for prizes! It will be unthemed, since all costumes are Halloween costumes. Just come in your best overall costumes!

Thursday, November 21 - PRIMARY COLORS We're looking for the best and brightest -- colors! We want to see saturated colors and your knowledge of the color wheel! (RGB and CMYK styles both okay!)

Thursday, November 28 - FOOD AND FAMILY This contest falls on U.S. Thanksgiving, so we're looking for pairs and groups representing a family of heroes or villains! Prizes will be raised. Escape your family for the City family!

 

 

 

Here are the themes for the next few weeks so that you can prepare:

Thursday, December 5 - HISTORY  We're looking for any historical figure from any historical era! Twists allowed!

Thursday, December 12 - WINTER WONDERLAND For some of us, it's winter! Get all wintery and cold and bring your best snow witches, snowmen, yeti, reindeer, and wendigo!

Thursday, December 19 - THE FORCE So there's this movie coming out on this day that concludes a trilogy of trilogies. It's pretty inspiring...so get inspired!

Thursday, December 26 - HOLIDAY CLASSICS Celebrate the end of the holidays by throwing it back to your favorite holiday classics! Movies, books, whatever!

Great idea. Maybe some day I'll participate. I have what I think is a great punk costume, but I don't get off work on time to participate.

 

 

Maybe we should have a forum based costume contest :)

I am sorry I missed this one...😞 I had created Oz's Wicked Witch costume for it with an emote saying, "I'll get you, my pretty and your little dog, too!"

Thanks, Blackbird71! Thanks, Healix!

 

Here's a short clip our winner, Evil Thriller, in action:

He had a whole set of macros that went through a good part of the song. This gif shows one of the transitions. The group at the contest asked them to run the macro something like ten times. It was great.

 

Remember that next Thursday's contest is all about groups and pairs. You choose your own theme for your group, but you gotta have at least two to the theme. Couples costumes are fine, team costumes are fine. Go wild.

In case anyone is curious, the whole dance sequence used:

  • 21 bind files to run the spoken lines (Vincent Price's part at the end of Thriller), costume change, and other emotes
  • 7 macros (mostly for pet emotes that wouldn't execute properly through key binds)
  • 1 Logitech gaming keyboard with macro keys to control the sequence and timing of everything

And yes, The Evil Thriller is available for parties, SG base openings, and graveyard hauntings.

On live, my MM had zombie pets that performed the entire YMCA song with emotes...it was always a big hit 😁
