#1 Post by Anadelonbrin » Sun Mar 29, 2020 6:04 pm

Are you a tailor?
Do you have an eye for fashion?
Can you put together a gorgeous outfit?
Do you like to wear pretty dresses?
Would you like an opportunity to dress up and show off?

If you can answer any of these questions with a resounding yes, then this may be the event for you!

What?
A fashion show

Who?
Starlight and friends

When?
Planning, sign ups, fittings, discussions - during the 2 weeks before the show.
Fashion show event - 16th May - why not invite a few friends?

Where?
Stormwind not far from the harbour.

Why?
Because we can!

X marks the spot.

There is a staircase leading up to a hatch where we will meet. ((Though OOC, it's inaccessible, so you need to just fly up there.))

After some planning and brainstorming, it was decided to push the show to a later date. In the meantime, we have preparations brewing.

This event will be open for Starlight and friends. Please invite guests - and let them know about how they can participate!

The show will have three themes.

For the first two themes, models will be coming down the catwalk in three groups and the audience will vote for which group they think did best in representing the two themes.

The model group leaders are Chit, Philias and Anadelonbrin. If you wish to be a model, you can sign up here, at the guild meeting or by contacting one of the group leaders. If you know someone who would like to model but is not in Starlight, have them contact Anadelonbrin.

The third theme will be shown by the audience of guests, with the models as judges. So they need to be warned in advance to bring a costume to change into (ideally not to wear until they take the catwalk!)

The winning groups get to choose a charity to which we will be giving a donation.

Examples of charities are the Stormwind orphanage, the Stormwind refugee camp, the Shattrath orphanage and Stormwind cathedral. If you have suggestions for other charities to list, please tell Anadelonbrin.

Nomine will be doing the presentations, so group leaders are encouraged to provide him with details about each outfit, such as names of tailors or jewellers, and other relevant information.

Themes for the models:
Greet the Sun
Under the Stars


Theme for the audience:
On the Wild Side


Once the teams are decided, they will meet up separately to coordinate outfits. Then there will be a rehearsal event and finally, the show itself. ((This means a series of events. Small events for the group meet ups, one joint event for participants, to which anyone from the guild who wants to come as audience is welcome too, one final large event with invited guests for the actual show and potentially small events if the winning groups wish to hand over the charity donations in person.))

As we wish to give our own tailors some love and attention, it is highly encouraged to bring their craftsmanship and expertise into the outfits. ((By all means rp that any clothes have been created or altered by our tailors! We'll have sewing circles for this.))

Props and accessories are allowed, but should accentuate the outfits rather than be their focus. Attention should be on the clothes. ((OOC: Consider using toys for a bit of flexing when the group poses together, however the outfits themselves should be wearable items.))

Philias has kindly offered to help with invitation design.

Those who are not modelling are encouraged to bring snapographs.

We are planning to hold the Fashion Show on 16 May on Stormwind Ramparts at 20.00 server time.
It will be for Starlight and other friends that we invite to the show - we won't be advertising it as server rp.

1. We need models!

We'd like to have from 7-10 people willing to put together a stunning outfit and walk the catwalk as part of a group of 3-4 models. You walk down, show off your costume, do a few emotes to the audience and walk back. Then you're free to enjoy the rest of the show. Easy!
You need to be willing to create 2 costumes, one for each of the themes Greet the sun and Under the Stars.
You'll be working flexibly in one of 3 small groups led by Anadelonbrin, Philias and Chit.
We'll meet at least once for a brief meeting to rehearse.

2. We're offering sewing and fitting rp!

This will be casual rp of an evening with a 'sewing for the Fashion show' theme. Come if you wish!
Maybe you've gained weight, or you need a lacy bodice to disguise that sword scar...
How will YOU call on our tailors to help you look your best?

3. Tailors of Starlight!

We want to give a chance for Starlight's tailors to show what they are made of! So we are inviting you to put on your most stunning outfit and walk down and show off your dress sense at the end of the show. No theme for this part of the event; it will take place while we are deciding on the winning Visitor outfits. Are you a tailor? want to take part? Let us know.

Please post below stating which of these options you'd like to be involved in.
No dates are fixed except the 16th May for the show itself, everything else we will work out based on your availability.

I had thought I had mentioned it before but I would like to also put in my interest as a model for the fashion show.

If it makes things difficult, I can always have Shien be the caterer. :D
