    Default PROMAGEDDON III: Return of the Revenge of the Prom!

    It's almost that time again! Time for PROMAGEDDON!

    To once again reheat the original synopsis....

    WHAT IS IT?:

    For those of you who aren't in the US, or who've been fortunate enough to repress most of their high school years, here's what the conventional Prom is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prom. A formal dance which is A Big Damn Deal for teenagers, who'll spend stupid amounts of money on ballgowns and tuxedos and limo rides and corsages and hairdos and other such fancy stuff.

    We, of course, do it a little differently.

    You can see much of last year's finery on Flickr! https://www.flickr.com/search/?sort=...n%20wastelands




    THE SETTING:

    Many school dances are held in the gym, which gets decorated with a bunch of streamers or balloons or props or other such things, so that instead of looking like a miserable gymnasium, it looks like a miserable gymnasium with streamers. In this spirit, we take over the Arena.


    THE MUSIC:

    As usual, all DJs or live performances would be welcome! Given the theme, if someone wanted to throw a few more slow dances into the mix, that'd be fine -- but, otherwise, the usual baffling variety of noise is welcome.


    THE CLOTHES:

    What else sets Promageddon apart from the usual Saturday festibals? The outfits -- everyone wears some sort of Ruin't interpretation of formalwear! Torn dresses and rusted jewelry. Ghouls in dug-up suits that still have slits in the back. Gunshot top hats and rusty rebar canes. Broken glass monocles. Sand Hippo hide kilts. Elaborate tribal finery. There are a lot of different ways to go with it!


    THE FIGHTS:

    It's not Prom without a Prom date -- and it's not Promageddon without couples-based fights! Fight Night becomes a series of 2 vs 2 fights, and the winning couple is crowned Prom King and Prom Queen.

    And then they have to fight each other.

    Couples obviously don't need to be male/female, by the way.

    Can you claim this year's crown, or will Nick and Masaka have to perch THREE crowns upon each of their regal heads? There's only one way to find out!

    THE TIME:

    The tricky part. May is already almost upon us, so to maximize the time to plan, I'd say it may be best to pick between the last two Saturdays of the month.

    So, to get the date that works best for everybody, please vote on the best Saturdays for you in the poll above!

    You can select more than one date, so if it's all the same to you, vote for both dates. If there's one day that is impossible for you, vote for everything BUT that date.

    Feel free to brainstorm additional ideas in this thread, show off more pictures of last year's foetid fete, or help make suggestions for outfits, decorations, etc!
    Whatever shit Wastelanders do, however dirty or bloody or batshit random it is, it comes right from our gritty, fucked up little hearts, and that's beautiful.

    Okay, I had initially voted for the 21st (I Think - Apo can you see who voted for what?) but I now realize that weekend is pretty impossible for me so I change my vote to the 28th. Sorry for any math confusions...

    I can't see who voted, but I'll just keep your change in mind and subtract 1 from the total for the 21st.

    As for the teenage avatar bit, I'm doing something different, personally - but I'm totally gonna Teen Apo it up again for the Sock Hop in August / September, whenever it ends up being.

    The poll has closed! And, especially when discounting Masaka's accidental vote for the 21st, we've got a runaway winner.

    ON MAY 28th, PROMAGEDDON IS NIGH!

    I'm going to be sending out notecards to prospective performers posthaste, and will start putting together the poster. If you want to perform, drop me a line here or inworld!

    Aw, thanks, Masaka!

    And major thanks to everyone who DJed, sang, fought, partied, or otherwise attended! It was great to see the amazing outfits you guys put together - and to watch people elegantly bash the everloving bejeezus out of each other. And congrats again to Prom King Sommer and Prom Queen Drifter!

    Speaking of amazing outfits and the winners of things... After much consideration, I've decided on this year's winners for best outfit:

    For best male ouftit...

    Zack, sporting a nicely ragged suit and a makeout-concealing overcoat!

    And for the best female outfit...

    Akiko's "Furry Roadkill" ensemble!

    Tralala's newsprint dress rustled up a close second, though.

    Dollars will be dispensed to the winners when I log in tomorrow.

    Congrats again, and thanks! Hope to do it all again next year!
