    To the Party: if you arrive in town at either the docks or the central bridge, turn to your left (due south) and follow the water's edge till you hit the three-story elven tree home. Party Central!

    Got bit drunk with 2 year whiskey (I blame Arsenic Halbal), so the image quality is poor.

    I want to thank @Cianna @Cafi and the order of the Forest Dwellers Guild for hosting the very first (likely only...lol) "Oogie Boogie Danse Macabre"! I greatly enjoyed being in Aelesar's Forest. It is a beautiful town and the house for the party was decorated in spooo-ooo-ooky fashion. DEE-licious!

    The costumes were awesome as were the spooktacular stories. :eek:

    A huge thank you to all the Avatars who attended during this 4 hour marathon event. If you enjoyed the music, you can thank Cianna for so many wonderful suggestions! <3

    Hopefully, once Cianna recovers from so...much...spooky fun, she will make a post of the winners for each contest. :D

    I would be remiss if I didn't thank some very special people for their help with the party yesterday:

    First and foremost, Fionwyn Wyldemane, who did an amazing job as DJ extraordinaire. She kept the night moving, played great music, and even entertained us with her role playing on air. Thank you so much, Fi. I very much appreciate all you did for the party.

    Cafi Rayn, who was there all night and helped in any way she could. I truly appreciated your support, girl friend.

    Emberlee Arwen (my guildie!) and Sean Silverfoot, for their gracious assistance with judging our contests. (Em, too, was there all night.) Thank you, guys!

    Nick Cold and Andromolight Oakhaven (also guildies!) for their donations to the party. Thank you!

    Oddjob, for manning the "store next door" for people who might have needed a little extra something for their costumes. It was lovely having you there!

    And finally, all of you from the community who joined with us to have some fun, thank you. It was lovely having all of you in our little town and we hope you'll come back to visit us once in a while.

    If I missed anybody, please forgive me. It was not intentional!

    Here are the winners from the two contests:

    Costume Contest:
    1st Place: Unbeliever Dragon
    2nd Place: Gaelis Trayan
    3rd Place: Sindarlya Tyelma
    Honorable Mentions: Net, Savio Vehemens, Edda Wulfgaerd, Gabriel Nightshadow, Yolo Solvie

    Spooky Writing Contest:
    1st Place: Tailz Suvorov
    2nd Place: Sol Stormlin
    3rd Place: Feral Dew

    Unfortunately, I didn't get pictures of all the winners as things were a bit too crazy, but here are a few from the party.

    @Cianna thank you for the kind words and the encouragement! I had a lot of fun going out on a "limb"...LOL.

    Auntie Oddity and Cannibal Hector kept Sister Love prisoner for FOUR hours and made her grovel the whole time! No one would save her from perdition. I suspect the guests did not want to end up being vivisected by @Dinsoo Blades. They slice, they dice and remain sharp even after cutting through bone. :::shudders::: Or turned into mincemeat pie (using the Dinsoo Mince-o-Matic), "like that Sweeney Todd feller an his woman" used to make. :eek:

    Costume Contest:
    1st Place: @UnbelieverDragon
    2nd Place: @Gaelis
    3rd Place: @Sindariya
    Honorable Mentions: @Net @Savio Vehemens @Edda Wulfgaerd @Gabriel Nightshadow @Yolo SoLive

    Spooky Writing Contest:
    1st Place: @Tailz
    2nd Place: @Sol Stormlin
    3rd Place: @Feral Dew

    There is one person I forgot to thank and that is @Andreaus Whitefyre aka DJ Mick Foley. The original plan was to have the two of us each do two hours of the show. But due to his work schedule and crashing problems with the game, he graciously opted to hand over his two hours to me so we could fulfill our commitment to @Cianna . He was unable to be there with us, but he was behind the scenes doing what he could to make sure this party was fun for the community! I could not have done it without him and I just had to give him a shout out. Thanks DJ Mick Foley!

    (For those of you too young to remember: I drew a lot of inspiration from these commercials and of course from the movie Silence of the Lambs and the play Sweeney Todd:
