~The Black Masquerade 2016~ *Closed*

Creator Post Date
Black Masquerade On the right hand side of the main club, a darkened room is guarded by Bael, the demon bouncer. Above the entrance way is a subtle, obsidian sign, glowing with lava, indicating the name of the VIP lounge.

The Devil’s Edge.

It was a perfect name, at least the King of all Demons thought so. And so, in favor of the Crossroads, Lucifer himself worked his magic, pushed from the depths of Hell a cavernous room, forged by the lava that flowed through his burning lakes to create a worthy VIP room of the Crossroads. Basalt in entirety, obsidian stalactites hung from the ceiling while stalagmites of equal fortitude erupted from the floors. The walls were infused the bright orange lava, the same from the sign, which provided the lighting for the room. Booths and lounges were covered in black leather and each table and counter top was made of the same obsidian rock that hung from the ceiling.

A small bar area is available for those to help themselves, but be careful…you may not be able to leave if you eat something from this room.

Black Masquerade The Devil's Edge sets the perfect atmosphere for the Black Masquerade, leaving very little needed in decorations, only leaving the lounge to expand to accommodate that it is, for this night, open to the public. Spider webs were placed in the corners, fake—yet oddly real looking—spiders handing from the webs. Bats will occasionally fly around the ceiling, but don’t worry they won’t bother you! A small layer of fog covers the floor, so be careful, you never know what might be lurking around your feet.

Along with the music that will be constantly playing, scream tracks and other haunting sounds to randomly play during the night.

Black Masquerade The Hostess

She made sure all the final touches of the room were complete. Each table had a menu, the music was ready, and food and drinks were being prepped. The clock ticked down ever so slowly. It was her favorite time of year. She loved seeing all the costumes and enjoyed the carefree interactions, even if it was only for a short while before everyone went back to being enemies.

Finally, it was time. The clock struck midnight and she opened the doors, allowing guests access.

They would, of course, be checked by the bouncers. No real weapons allowed. And they wouldn't be able to use any magic either, thanks to a spell cast on the club.

She would great each guess as they entered, taking note of every costume for the prizes later on.

Black Masquerade ^ The Black Cat ^

The Black Cat enters the room looking around to see if any one else was there. Handing the bouncer the bow then heads to the bar and orders the famous Death Punch and Witches Fingers.Siting back on the stool waiting for the food and drink to arrive placing the money on the counter.

Black Masquerade


-The Phantom-



The Phantom wandered into the club in button down white shirt and black vest and pants, complete with a black cape and a white mask that covered half her face. She handed her dagger off to the bouncer before she wandered toward the bar, taking a seat and ordering a Vampire's Kiss Martini. She slipped slowly from the glass placed in front of her, eyes grazing over the club.

Black Masquerade


*The Devil*



The Devil walked into the club, enjoying the spooky atmosphere. He was clad in a black suit with a red tie, complete with a matching red mask and horns. He got himself a River's Regenerating ****tail and a Batter Fried Demon Tail and sat down at a nearby table.

Black Masquerade -The Siren-

The Siren smiled as she slipped in amongst the other guests, hoping that her costume would make sense. Glancing about, the girl's hand fell to her hip where her swords usually hung making her bite her lip. Her outfit was lovingly stitched, the thinning material of sails that had been treated and dyed into soft colors that brought to mind sea caves and sandy beaches. Polished sea glass caught the eye as it twinkled along her bodice in the light. Her face was partially hidden by a curtain of flaming curls, held in place with pins decorated with delicate sea pearls, and the soft sway of her skirts gave glances of the small pink shells that adorned her shoes. Most knew of sirens as dangerous creatures who lured men with their song, but she was happy to show how truly beautiful they were. Slipping past the table of refreshments she snagged a glass of Death Punch and went off to make herself comfortable.

Black Masquerade ^The Black Cat^

Her eyes gazed across the room watching other's enter turning in their weapons and placing their orders. Finishing her drink and witch's fingers she slid her money to the bar keep ordering 2 more of the famous Death Punch and then ordered some of the Batter Fried Demon Tails she was feeling peckish tonight and decided to treat herself.

Black Masquerade


.The Great Pumpkin.





The clicks and scruffs of her heels against the pavement were the first thing to be revealed. It had been ages since she had been at a Masquerade. Had she gotten them lost? When she had lost a tinge of hope, she heard the music flood to her ears. "This way!" She squealed enthusiasticly. The lower half of her body decorated in green tights, and orange kiddy heel shoes.It all lead to an orange lace tutu with a dark pastel green trim.  



Her midsection seemed alien to the rest of her form, but it was exposed painted in orange paint. Armed with obsidian triangle eyes,a triangle nose, and a large gaping jaggedly squared mouth. From the upper curve of her stomach to her neck, she was covered in a darkened pastel green top to match the trim of her tutu. The tone of her lips best described a dartmouth tone, and the mask that covered her turqoise eyes were made entirely of Autumn multicolored leaves. Streaks of green inhabitated her hair,  it remained pinned up except for a few rogue ringlets.  



At first she was sure that she would be able to jet with her date into a table, but instead her irises illuminated in awe. "Look, look at the bats!" The excitement soon overthrown by her realization that bats gave her the heebie jeebies. "Don't look at the bats. Don't look at the bats." She whispered to counter her earlier gusto.

Black Masquerade ~Creepy Doll~





Finding the perfect bonnet for a Halloween party was more difficult than it sounded. Mostly, it was difficult because it was an antique Doll. It’s fingers were fused together, so ordering online was proving incredibly hard. And don’t even get it started on signing for the package once it arrived. But, where there is a will, there is a way. Or more topically when a person decides to possess the creepiest doll in the attic as a costume, there is always a way.


The bonnet did more than just dress up the plain blue outfit it wore. It hid the faded painted on hair on the misshapen skull. This Doll had been loved at one time. That is what one might gather after seeing its worn outfit and features-faded paint, dirt smears, and chips in the porcelain. Looking in the mirror before departing, Doll was very pleased with what it saw. Doll found it’s cheeky side-eye and dimpled, toothsome grin to be the epitome of charming. Who could say no to this face? Who?! Dare Doll say it, it looked cuter than a Kewpie doll. It would certainly know. Doll had been pressed against one in the dusty trunk in the attic for the better part of a century. The Spirit within felt funny, but it felt a heck of a lot better than being stuffed in that box for another hundred years. Doll was all about keeping perspective. Seeing the silver lining in things and all that.


Gliding on its porcelain, flat feet, Doll arrived at The Devil’s Edge. It is very fair to say that Doll had never been to a club before. This was all very exciting. The Spirit within stirred eagerly, obviously a spirit that HAD been to a club before. And for some strange reason, Doll could tell the Spirit within was thirsty for a libation. How unfortunate that the Spirit had forgotten one tiny detail of their bizarre choice in costume. Like it’s fingers, Doll’s lips and teeth were also fused shut. Add to the fact that no magic could be used within the club, Spirit was firmly stuck and bound within Doll so long as Doll remained in The Devil’s Edge. There’d be no imbibing for Doll or Spirit tonight.


Standing in the middle of the room at its full height of 16”, Doll beamed its widest grin (the same smile it always has...it’s a doll) at the others at the party.

Black Masquerade


= The Monarch =





Black sleeves hang down just past her wrists. The flared ends show off black fingerless gloves and her black and orange nail polish. Her shoulders are bare.  Black, orange and white straitions converge at her abdomen, then flair out into a short but full skirt. The orange and yellow mosaic mid section give way to small rhinestones she has painstakingly glued to the edges, allowing the skirt to shimmer in the right light. A black petticoat gives the skirt a perfect flounce.  Gossamer wings repeating the pattern spread out from behind her and flow seamlessly with the dress. Black leggings and knee high black leather boots complete the look.  Her hair is pulled back and up and she has weaved black feathers and pipe cleaners together to create antennea flowing out of her upswept coiff.





With a nervous yet excited step she enters the Lounge.  Her eyes scan the room and she smiles as she notices the menu. Fluttering up to the bar, she orders a Black Widow shot. Sniffing it casually first, she wrinkles her nose when she can not discern it's contents. With a deep breath and a shrug of her shoulders, she tosses  her head back and drains the glass in one smooth practiced motion.  "There. That should help calm my nerves" she thinks as she wiggles her fingers to the bartender calling for another round.


October 26, 2016 00:22
Black Masquerade ^The Black Cat ^

She watched more people arrive in there costumes. The one that caught her attention the was that of the creepy doll. It reminded her of Chucky and the the doll from the Conjuring. Lifting up she pulled her tail out from beneath her and placed it on her lap then she twirled her whiskers. Taking a sip of her punch and a bite of her food she spun around in her seat and waited to watch more of the people to arrive. This was one holiday she liked to have fun on.

Black Masquerade The Angel

Walking in wearing a long white dress with white wings on her back with a halo over her head she hands over her weapon and proceeds to the bar. Placing the bills on the counter she orders few of the Zombie Slime Shooters and some of the Angel Wings.

Black Masquerade


-The Phantom-



 



The Phantom finished her first drink as she continued to look around the club, eyes grazing over everybody who walked through the door, waiting to see if her better half would show so they could have a little fun together. She turned back to the bar, sliding a few dollars across to the bartender for another drink; a few more on an empty stomach and she knew the alcohol would start to go to her head. She looked over the menu quickly and ordered a muffin to help slow the affects of the booze. 


October 26, 2016 19:27
Black Masquerade


^ The Black Cat^



She kept looking towards to see if her love would show. They needed  some fun and excitement. Granted she didnt tell him what she was going as she wanted to see if he could tell and find her. After all it was one of his favorites. She finished her shots and ordered a couple more. If this kept up she would not be able to see what was before her.


October 26, 2016 20:19
Black Masquerade -The Siren-

She sighed softly, paying for a glass of Cersei's golden champagne. The bubbles lifted her spirits some but it was still a little bleak. Her date had backed out at the last moment so she was unfortunately on her own on such a wonderful night. Sipping her drink she settled by the bar a few seats from the monarch and leaned into the polished surface of the bar. "What do I need a date for? I can have fun all by myself. Just watch." Her dress twinkled as she turned in the seat to people watch. The little pumpkin had made her giggle when it had entered but the doll had given her chills. Still, she was determined to enjoy the night.

Black Masquerade


-The Batman-



He had chosen a more dramatic entrance to announce his presence to this place. Sneaking along the roof he found his way to the rafters and spotted his target before jumping down. When he landed a puff of smoke covered him as he slowly rose to his full height



He was clad in full bodysuit made from a grey, cloth-like material that sported a large black bat-like symbol on the chest. His identity was shielded with a black cowl which flowed over his shoulders and down his back to a large cape. His hands were covered by black armored gloves and gauntlets on his forearms with three dull blades on the sides. His feet and shins were covered by thick black armored boots and around his waist was black utility belt



Walking to the bar he took a seat on the stool and ordered a Death Punch and told the bartender to keep them coming as he cast his gaze around the bar wondering if his target would realize it was him

Black Masquerade


*Nightwing*



He had heard about the Masquerade and thought about checking it out so in true Halloween fashion he had gotten dressed up had just entered the building. Looking around he saw a few cool costumes as he passed a mirror and gave himself a once over. He sported a black streamline armored bodysuit which had a red stylized wing emblazoned on the chest area with the tips stretching over the shoulder pads and form a single stripe down his arm coloring his two middle fingers of his black gloves. His outfit was finished out with a domino mask on his face with black grease-paint around his eyes, pair of black combat boots, a black utility belts and carries a pair of eskrima sticks in a holster on the outer side of his right leg



Getting himself several Black Widow Shots at the bar he spotted someone dressed as Batman and chuckled to himself "Seems we had similar ideas."


October 26, 2016 21:01
Black Masquerade ^The Black Cat^

She took another shot and felt the room spin a bot when she saw Batman and Nightwing just a couple of stools away Leaning over she gave the man some money and told him to give the a drink and tell them its from the Cat. Taking her last shot she looked over at them and nodded.If her other half didnt show up soon she would give up hope.
October 26, 2016 21:13
Black Masquerade -The Siren-

The young woman drained her glass and let out a soft hoot. "Aye, this is a strong drink." Spotting the batman she grinned and then the entrance of night wing made her laugh outright. "My, all we need is Alfred now." She gave a wave to the pair, after all she had always been a great fan of the action duo.
October 26, 2016 21:24
Black Masquerade


= The Monarch =



She smiles watching the dramatic entrance the two hero's made. Inside she wonders if they had planned that and knew each other or if it was mere coincidence. Everyone in the Realm seems to know each other or be connected in some way. Her eyes scan the room, hoping that as the night progresses and with enough strong drink she will work up the courage to ask one of these single masked men to dance.



Her wings flutter some as the bartender comes close again. The drinks seem to be flowing rather freely and it is certainly helping to loosen her up. She gives the Siren a nod and smiles in appreciation as shiny twinkly things always do seem to catch her attention.  She slips the bartender a healthy tip with a nod and a smile meant to keep the shots comming. She keeps a curious eye towards the door. Even though she does not expect to recognize anyone, she can appreciate the effort and creativity of those attending.

Black Masquerade


*The Devil*



 



He looked around as more guests arrived, some with scary costumes and others with more comical ones. He found the two superheroes quite amusing. The angel had also caught his eye and he glanced at them as he got himself some Witch Fingers.


October 27, 2016 05:48
Black Masquerade


-The Batman-



Recognizing the voice of the guy dressed as Nightwing he smirked as he heard the Siren joke about needing an Alfred to complete the set



"I wouldn't be surprised if someone did show up dressed as Alfred."



Moving down the bar he pearched next to Nightwing with a smile as he patted the young man on the back and looked to the bartender



"Next round for everyone is on me."


October 27, 2016 14:16
Black Masquerade


*Nightwing*



When he heard the jokes being made he felt a little more at ease as he heard Batman speak and knew who it was now but kept it to himself. Smirking when the Caped Crusader said the next round of drinks were on him, the former Boy Wonder downed three more of his shots as he looked around "Does anyone know the policy on smoking in here?"


October 27, 2016 14:19
Black Masquerade


+Red Hood+



+Never in all my years had I thought I'd be doing this, but my brother had said he would be here and he told me to wear this get up. Taking a deep breath I entered the VIP area after being searched by the bouncer and granted access. The sights were astounding and felt lively as I spotted a few people already there.+



+Passing by a mirror I gave myself a once over to make sure I was immaculate in my costume. My torso was covered by a black, longsleeved shirt that featured armor-like accents on the arms, shoulders, chest (which sported a large red bat-like emblem), abdomen and back beneath a crimson red hooded biker jacket. My lower half was clad in pair of military like pants with armor-like plating in the thigh area.+



+Finishing off my attire were a pair of black armored boots, gloves and gauntletts while my head was covered by a formfiting helmet that gave the impression of a featureless face with lips and a black utility belt around my waist which had holsters for two custom black and red IMI Desert Eagle Mark XIX .357 Magnum made from foam rubber+



+Taking a seat next to the Batman and Nightwing I smirked knowing now that my brother had planned this+ May I have a Death Punch for myself and a round of Black Widow Shots for me the Super-zeros over here.

Black Masquerade ^The Black Cat^

Standing up the Cat walked over to the two and grinned

"What is the dynamic duo with out the villains Cat."

Smiling she walked to the juke box and pressed a Joan Nett song 'I love rock n roll' dancing her way back she ordered another shot.

Black Masquerade The Angel

Ordering a Vampires Miss Martini she looked over and saw the Devil looking at her she smiled and nodded.Raising her drink to him she took a sip of her

Black Masquerade Uriel the Archangel

Her niece said she would have some fun if she came to this party and fun is what she needed since both of their counter parts were away. Handing over her weapon she saw who invited her and went to her. Sliding in the seat next to her she looked at what she was having and called the bartender over to her.

" I'll have your vampire kiss and some Angel wings please."

Looking at her niece she shook her head.

" Ok.. I know what Angel I am which one are you Goldielocks? I see that the Devil is here as well. "

The bartender brought her her drink and food giving him the money she took a bite of her food."

Black Masquerade ~Creepy Doll~


Doll remained standing still in the middle of the club. What else was it to do? It’s porcelain teeth molded shut didn’t allow for any of the delectable treats offered at the bar-liquid or otherwise. Spirit within nearly whirred at the force of a hurricane inside Doll. Gritting its teeth, Doll decided it’d be best to just scope things out. Have a glance at the other costumes.


Rotating its head slowly, Doll looked around. Its head jerked as it turned, the neck joint dusted and unused for so long. Even though Doll didn’t blink, its eyes seemed to follow and lock onto other patrons. A black kitty, giving Doll a feeling of nearly forgotten nostalgia. Its person used to have a black cat named Spot. Surely that cat had long died by now, right? Doll kept its cool blue eyes locked on the Black Cat for a moment longer than social norms would dictate, wondering if perhaps this Black Cat was Spot reanimated for this special holiday. The only way to know if it was truly the old cat brought back for All Hallows Eve was to open its chest and find its heart. A reanimated cat would have no heart. If the Black Cat here had a heart, well---Doll would at least know it wasn’t Spot. Doll vowed to investigate further later on.


Doll’s still and unrelenting gaze settled upon one with long red hair and sea glass glinting in the low light of the club. It’s head tilted at an odd angle as it took in all the ornamentation in her hair and costume. Lovely. Her hair was so lovely. Not painted on like its was. Doll felt a pang and wondered why it couldn’t have long and lovely hair just like her. Perhaps it could. The night was still young, and there was no sign on the door saying one must leave with the scalp one arrived with.


Macabre grin and blank stare remaining on its old, porcelain face, Doll’s gaze continued onward, remaining still in the middle of the room despite the hurricane churning inside its small body.
October 27, 2016 21:13
Black Masquerade ^The Black Cat^

Hearing the two angels speaking a smile came over her lips knowing who they were. Going over to them she sat down next the one with the wings and like to the bartender.

" Hey bar keep another round on me. Hey you two I'd know your voice any where. Granted little winged Angel here said she was coming but forgot to tell me what she was coming as. Hey did you two get stood up too?"
October 27, 2016 21:34
Black Masquerade -The Siren-

At the arrival of redhood, her eyes lit up wirh amusement. They nearly had all the little birds tonight. The woman ordered another champagne and joined the small group forming at the bar. "I had considered poison ivy tonight, what with my hair. But I couldn't summon up the courage to show that much skin." She laughed softly admired their body suits. "But truly, these are wonderfully made." Seeing The Cat leave she paused a bit awkwardly, not wanting to bother them too long. "Have a lovely night, may the spirits be kind." She slipped away and went over to the jukebox she had seen the cat fiddling with and studied the song choice before picking a slowed version of Black Magic Woman by Santana. She smiled, dancing with herself as the song played, swaying to the hypnotic melody.

He smiled and nodded at the Angel before getting himself a Death Punch. He chuckled at the smaller Angel's remark. "Where else would I be?"


October 28, 2016 05:41
Black Masquerade ®Gambit®

He was dressed in his long brown coat that opened all the way revealing his lightweight armored body suit. The torso was colored fuchsia while a few stripes ran down each of his sides. The rest of the suit was black. He also wore black fingerless gloves. His silver boots were knee high and made of a certain metal that was lightweight and flexible. He also wore a mask that hid most of his face. Only his lips and his red eyes were visible.

He handed over his retractable bo staff and cards as he walked in. Taking in how everything was done to near perfection. He headed to the bar which was a bit crowded but chuckled when he saw the caped crusader, night wing and the red hood.

-The Batman-



More and more people had gathered and he was about to reply to the Siren when he saw her leave just as abruptly as she came. Shrugging it off he looked over at Nightwing then saw as Gambit perch on a stool next to the Red Hood



"And we have another comic book character with us this evening, barkeep his drinks are on me."


October 28, 2016 15:52

Talking to her friends she looked over at The Batman something about him drew him to her. Turning her attention back to the Angels she took a bite of her food then a sip of her drink.

She turned, stepping deftly around Gambit with a tip of her head. "Oh my, another hero. Many pardons sir." She offered a small curtsy. "Gambit isn't it? Always thought he was rather interesting." Her smile was playful as she sipped from her glass. Looking to The Bat, her smile turned sheepish, "Sorry for running. I get nervous in crowds."

Listening to Black Cat she shook her head as she spoke back. " Thanks for the drink. As for being stood up nah away on business I am hoping he will be back by Yule. " Picking up her drink she tip her glass and downed her drink.

-The Phantom-



She finished off two more drinks and ordered something else to eat before she hopped down from the bar stool where she sat and wandered over to the jukebox. She looked through the songs available, searching for something a little dark to play, and eventually settled on Nemesis by Shriekback. Satisfied, she returned to the bar, nodding her head to the beat of the music, and ordered another drink that she sipped from as she glanced around the club once more, amused by some of the costumes.

Black Masquerade + The Green Elf +

He's sneaking inside. After checking through security of course. He didn't even bother bringing any weapons with him to check. The man is sufficient enough without a gun or a knife, so he's relatively unbothered. Besides, in this outfit he might be more willing to die than any other die, anyway.

Dressed to the nines in a skin tight suit, its green, black and blue and it almost resembles a snake skin. But the intention isn't to mimic that of the reptilian sort, but rather the Elvish. Secured around his ears were elongated ears of rubber, and atop his head was a funny sort of velvety mess. It was bright, and it flopped over the side of his head. Perfectly matching the rest of his outfit. Right down to the slippers on his feet, that curled up with bells secured on the ends.

The saving grace of this costume, was that he brought party favors. His partner having brought her own stash. Not only would they enjoy them together, but they'd pass them out on the down low, offering to anyone who would pay them any attention- small samples of these treats.

Candy. Cookie bits. Little pieces of caramels. Fun treats.

Let the festivities begin.

Black Masquerade


~ The Fuchsia Elf ~



The Green Elf’s counterpart enters with an evident stagger. Clearly she had been the guinea pig for the snacks he was packing. Her suit was layers of checkered Fuchsia and varying purples, mimicking the evident Elvish theme the pair had set forth. Her pointed ears loped downwards, her hat pinned to her hair – the bell attached ringing with a cheap clang as she took one step after another.



She staggered up The Green Elf, an arm looping through his, her satchel of assorted treats hanging off of her hip. A hand fishes into his pocket, denying all sense of propriety as she procures a wrapped piece of caramel, popping it into her mouth before he could object.



The Fuchsia Elf was bent already, pre-gaming was the game. A wicked grin splits her face as she separates from her man, slipping into the fray of the party.



The Great Pumpkin.



She approaches the ingenious costume, brandishing a self-wrapped lollipop from her mess of snacks. “Enjoy a spooky treat, and keep plenty of water and snacks nearby.”



Negligence was guaranteed with this one.


October 31, 2016 15:38
Black Masquerade + The Green Elf +

He smelled her before he could see her. The rattling of her ominous bells made her even easier to detect. He wouldn't object against her slinking arm, but is always suspicious of her motives. Mr. Green Elf suspects that his fuchsia counterpart thinks he can't feel her hand in his pocket. For once, he would allow her her freedoms.

And he follows suit, popping a treat into his own mouth and allowing the sticky sugar to melt against his tongue. She takes off, and he sets his sights on the first passer by, following them all the way to the bar.

- The Phantom -

She's enjoying her drink, and the tune she's just picked. The Elf opens his bag and shakes it at her.

"Care to try for a treat? No tricks here, I promise."
October 31, 2016 15:50
Black Masquerade ®Gambit®

He smiled at The Siren. "Yes that's correct and I've always been a bit interested by a siren's song." He said chuckling. "Always wanted to know if I was immune."

He nodded to The Batman as he raised his glass in thanks. "So what are you three up to anyway?" He asked taking a drink. "Should I be suspicious of any villains arriving soon? And I must warn you I drink like there's no tomorrow."

He looked at the other guests taking in their costumes. He wasn't really one for masquerades but first time for everything. Plus he wasn't alone here as he finished his drink and asked for a refill.

Black Masquerade


=The Monarch=



She smiles at the bartender and holds up a black-gloved hand.  The drinks are tasty but she needs to be able to fly straight. Her eyes glance around the room again as the lounge seems to be filling up nicely.  More superheroes, an Angel/Devil, and matching elves fill the bat and tables.   It would have been nice to find someone to coordinate a costume with.  With a wry smile, she wonders what the chances were someone would come in dressed as a yummy milkweed.



She flits over to an empty corner away from the bar and crowd. There were a few soloists, like herself, but they seem few and far between. Her vision squinting, she notices the strange plastic child in the middle of the dance floor. There seems to be some manner of force-field around it, for none of the other guests seem to be engaging or even noticing it’s presence.  Her heels click to the edge of the dance floor and then slowly retreat back to the corner.  Her “fight-or-flight” instinct was present and she prefers to avoid danger.  She will be migrating soon and it is a long flight to California.

She laughed softly at Gambit's words, "My my, many men have tested the song. Not many were immune though." At the mention of villains she tipped her head, "I will admit, I would love to see some villains about. I've always been fond of Scarecrow. Even though he scares the bloody hell out of me." She ordered another drink, savoring the sharpness of the alcohol.

Perching up on a stool beside Gambit, she glanced around the bar and paused on the doll once more. It was oddly creepy and she was sure she had felt it's gaze earlier in the night.

hearing the Devils remark she couldn't help but chuckle. " I guess your right  there on that one."  She looked at Uriel " As for you  whose the designated driver tonight there Angel U? Ordering another death punch  she looked at The Black Cat " Well you are most def not it ...there Kitty Kat."

" I was hoping it would be you little Angel."

Hearing the Angels comment to Black Cat she couldn't help but laugh.

"You are right there little white Angel.I think Blackie here reached her limit. And you look like your in the running for second."

" Hey I deserve to have this after all being good all the time gets old as you should know there the big A." The Angel orders herself a death punch " You know Maybe Kitty Cat there can drive us home tonight." She looks at them and grins

" I think not. I will trust myself flying."

The Angel laughs shaking her head. " Yeah and you are always letting loose. " Looking around she notices more have started to arrive taking a sip of her drink she looks over at the Devil and grins then to the super heroes.

Downing her drink she goes to the juke box and presses the buttons for I got a spell on you by Bette Midler that she sang in the movie Hocus Pocus. Going back to her seat she ate the rest of her Angel wings.

  Dressed in her famous long black close fitting gown, Morticia shuffled silently into the room where the Masquerade was taking place, tonight as always on special occasion, her blackness sparkled in the light.  She chose dark purple eye shadow over her dark grey that she normally wears. She smiles darkly, all these lovely people here for the same reason as they were, how wonderful.



 



  “Come along Gomez, mon amour; the children are old enough to be off on their own tonight.”

Gliding amongst the crowd, her hand on her everloving husband, she ventures to the bar.  She’s not lost that dark smile yet.  Perusing the menu for something to drink, perhaps a snack, she turns to him asking him politely if he’d care for anything.



“Death Punch mon cher?”

"Death Punch sounds divine, gomez replied softly" I'll also take the salty fingers with blood dipping sauce, looking to his beautiful wife with a evil smirk on his face"!

*The Devil*



 



He chuckled as the Angel agreed. "Indeed." He then looked around as a pair of elves, one green and one fuschia, entered. He couldn't help but admire the lengths people went to for their costumes, especially the couple that were dressed as Gomez and Morticia from The Addams Family.

He notices how many new people have arrived, and so with his bag of goodies and treats, he tiptoes around the room, shaking the large satchel of velvet and silk until it happens to capture someone's attention. In between, he would pop little pieces of sugary treats into his mouth, and after a while might even begin to stumble a bit. But he is always smiling. Because if anything, these treats make him feel great.

He pauses as he does his rounds, jingling the bag.

Offering a treat to *The Devil*, and then The Angel. Wonders who would accept a treat first, and how ironic he might find it.

"Don't be shy! Its Halloween, make time for a treat!"

"Maybe I'll be immune as well." He said chuckling as he turned his attention to her since she had taken a seat beside him. Either to continue the conversation or rest her legs. "So what about him scares you?"

Black Masquerade -The Siren-

Her head tipped in thought, her teeth meeting her bottom lip. "I guess it would be the ability to give life to my worst fears in a way." Her wide grey eyes met his, "My greatest fear is drowning. I don't ever want to experience it again and the idea that someone could plunge me into that nightmare is frightening to say the least." She sipped her drink, lips glistening from the alcohol. "Silly huh? Fear of drowning in a siren?" Her laugh was a bit muted as she reached up to readjust one of her hair pins.
November 01, 2016 12:50

"Ah I see." He said nodding. "Fear is just an obstacle that one must strive to overcome. I have my fears but I don't let them control me." He patted her gently on her shoulder. "Its not silly in the least."

The woman's expression was grateful, someone who understood. "It's always been a joke among my companions." She took on a gruff low pitch, "But you spend most of your time at sea child! How can you fear drowning?" Her expression was a perfect mimicry of a grizzly old sailor. "I figure, what greater way to defeat a fear than to confront it every day." Finishing her drink she ordered another with a tap on the bar. "I rather enjoyed chatting with you Gambit. It's a shame the party will end and we will go our separate ways."

~ The Fuschia Elf ~



Bells jingled as the Fuschia Elf lurched around the room, clanging and ringing as she pranced about. After enjoying a second caramel snack, she plucked a lollipop in her mouth before she migrated for the bar, hopping up into the stool beside The Monarch, offering treats abound in her direction. 



"Y'wuh maj'sty," She spoke with a lisp as the lollipop lulled around in her mouth, distorting her speech. That or... every illicit substance in her system was affecting her motor skills. Either scenario was likely at this juncture in time. "Candy?" 



Her head tilts to the side, the bell on her hat jingling as if the further the question -- and the offer.

-The Phantom-



She stopped nodding her head to the music for a moment when The Green Elf approached her and offered her a treat with the promise that there would be no tricks. She eyed him for a moment, her guard up, but eventually reached into the bag and pulled out a sugary piece of candy, that she cautiously popped into her mouth, and gave the elf a grateful smile before turning back to her drink and once again nodding her head to the music.


November 01, 2016 17:18
Black Masquerade + The Green Elf +

He grins wide, watching as The Phantom popped the treat into her mouth. It was no trick, but a treat for sure. The special ingredient melted down with the sugar sure to take its hold shortly thereafter. It was nothing to be concerned about, perhaps as potent as a shot of whiskey. But it would help the patron to further enjoy their night.. In an intoxicated way. With a bit of a squeal and a wide smile, he offers a nod and is off to his next 'customer'. Down the barline he would go until everyone had gotten one.

+ Charlie Brown +



Charlie Brown follows the Great Pumpkin in, keeping a close eye on her movements as they make their way through the crowd. Evidently, he’s watching out for her. Pumpkins are fragile, no need to spill guts unnecessarily.



He wore a yellow polo, the black zig-zag stripe cutting across his torso in the iconic style. Brown pleated shorts cut off at the knee, met by yellow socks at his ankles, and brown loafers. The only compromise he was allowed in the matter was not having to shave his head.



Don’t look at the bats, dearest. And don’t trust the drinks. Or the elves. Just don’t do anything.” He grumps. “If I act like I can’t understand what anyone says to me, is that dedication to the role, or rudeness?”

Black Masquerade ~Creepy Doll~

As more people arrived, Doll realized standing in the middle of the fray put it at a distinct disadvantage for observing. Gliding over to the bar, it wasn't until Doll perched on the edge of the sleek bar that it noticed it had been leaving a trail of blood behind it. Eyes wide and cherubic, Doll kept its innocent looking smile as its head twisted and turned to each side. It was trying to determine who had spotted the blood. It looked like nobody had, as they were all preoccupied with such trivial things like candy and costumes and libations that made Spirit within stir like mad. It made Doll's insides feel funny, which made it want to do bad things. Unable to bend its legs, Doll wasn't sure if the blood really was on its small patent leather shoes or from something else. Doll kept its smile plastered on its face- mostly because it had to, but also because it was trying very hard to look cherubic and sweet sitting on the bar. With shoes dripping blood. And eyes that followed a person no matter where they stood. And a distinct yet slightly faint sulfuric smell emanating off its porcelain body. Yea, maybe aiming for 'cherubic and sweet' was a bit of a stretch. Still, Doll tried. How else could it give a false sense of complacency to the party attendees? They needed to be completely unaware before Doll harvested their soul. Spirit within spun like mad, giving Doll the mistaken idea that Spirit approved of such acts. Nodding its head in a jerking manner, Doll sat in wait.

-The Phantom-



Her head grew a bit fuzzy, feeling the beginning of a buzz, and she contemplated getting up to play another song and when she turned she spotted the blood. She followed it to the doll, eyes growing wide. There wasn't much in the world she feared, creepy porcelain dolls happened to be one of the few that made the list. She told herself not to stare, but she couldn't help it. There was something strange about the doll, something that unsettled the Phantom, though she wasn't quite sure what it was about the doll that made her so uneasy. She turned back to the bar, ordering another drink and trying to put it out of her mind.

He chuckled at the Green Elf's enthusiasm. "If you insist." He then took a treat and popped it into his mouth. He then waited to see what would happen. After all, when it came to Halloween, there had to be tricks as well as treats.

He nodded. "A shame indeed." He said as he rested his elbows on the bar.

Sips her drink quietly, lost in thought. She was especially glad no one could hear her in moments like this. She sighed as she drifted off in her mind, "Good job old gal. You've got a stiff drink and lovely company and you're still a stick in the mud. Surprised he hasn't ran for the hills yet. I mean, who brings up drowning??" Her thoughts trailed off as she looked over at him, a mischievous smile on her lips. "Wanna dance with me?" She could still make this a night to remember if she tried.

"Why not?" He said as he slid off his stool. Patting The Batman on the shoulder as he walked past him and headed to the dancefloor.

.The Great Pumpkin.



How was a great pumpkin supposed to act? Great & Pumped of course. She only visited the sincerest of parties (maybe she was lost, okay?). The pumpkin stood partly quiet excpet for wading through the crowd, and pausing every other step to admire another costume.  



The Fuschia elf was nice, and the pumpkin was starving. Since she hadn't tackled the food with her Charlie, she gladly took the lollipop. She gave a wide angelic grin, with an enthuised. "Thanks!"



Don't trust the drinks of the elves.



Pumpkin paused as between her fingers was the lollipop the Fuschia elf had given her. The wrapper had longed dropped to the floor, and the candy was inches away from her lips. She stared up at the ceiling doe-eyed after he mentioned the bats, and felt a shiver linger on her spine.  



"Wah, wah, wah?" She stifled a snicker as she looked back to her partner Charlie. A slow nod given to her, "You just do you, Charlie Brown. Don't trust any footballs at this party." Pumpkin teetered and tried to balance the lollipop in her hand, as her eyes moved instead to the Doll at the bar. Did dolls and pumpkins go together? She was unsure, and so tapped Charlie to point to it.

“Gomez, mom amour.”, she coos to him as she hands his his drink and his snack. She then takes her Death Punch, quietly drinks it.  Her eyes narrow, her lips curve ruefully into that mysterious smile of hers, the one that makes others wonder who’s going to die next or is it the one wondering what Grandmamma is making for dinner later….



The music begins bringing the dark lady out of her revelry …”Gomez darling, the music, such divinity.”

Rolling her eyes as she looked at them she then spoke " Hey kitty cat or blackie as you both call me standing right here ok? I am fine I can out drink the lot of them so bite your tongues. Got it?"

She then smiled taking her drink looking at Batman. Something about him was familiar and it was driving her nuts.Getting up when a song came on she went to him and spoke. " Want to dance handsome?

She looked around the club once more, her eyes falling on Gambit and the others. She squinted, certain she recognized them, and collected her drink before making her way toward them, a grin on her lips, glad she wasn't alone.

She followed him with glee, pausing by the jukebox to put on Bloodletting by the Concrete Blonde. She had to laugh at the choice, but as the thumping rhythm started dhe moved closer to him. Her dress twinkled in the light as she danced with Gambit. She hadn't had this much fun in a while, especially in such lovely company.

If Morticia could blush she would with Gomez’s compliment.  “Ma cher, such flattery.”



She smiles her lovely devil may care smile to him as he leads her back to the darkened table.  Nights like this are rare, three children, Wednesday all grown up to boot …what a family they have.  It is important to the happy couple they get times such as this Masquerade.



She gives the environment a quick look, noticing the Black cat and the Phantom, interesting choices honestly.  However her gaze returns to where it truly belongs, that’s to the eyes of her husband.

He grinned when he heard the music she had chosen and was soon dancing along with her. He rarely let loose but since this was a one time thing he saw no reason to have fun and act like a child.

*The Ghost*



His first idea had been the laziest, and in all honesty wouldn't have hidden his identity at all. His second was a minor step up, but it was better than nothing...and his first idea. A classic bedsheet ghost was standing over the refreshment table. The eyeholes were raggedly cut circles, showing nothing but blackness. A big smiling mouthhole was also cut below the eyes. No use having a costume you couldn't eat in.



He eyed the menu and the refreshments cautiously. Angel wings? Slayer hearts? Good gracious God, were those actual body parts of sentients? With an unmanly screech, the Ghost hastily ran away from the table towards what he thought was a less...frightening area. Yeah. Less frightening. There was even people dancing. Nothing wrong with dancing! The Ghost started off with a few awkward steps and turns, the bedsheet stifling half of his movements.



"So...what is this song? And this band?" Not something he usually listened to, that was for sure.

She laughed as she watched the Black Cat walk away head to The Batman. Finishing her drink she noticed Morticia and Gomez  Addams . She looked around and wondered where Uncle Fester, Grand ma ma , Wednesday , Pugsly and Lurch were.

Black Masquerade ~Creepy Doll~

Noticing some people looking at it, Doll's face remained unchanged. It couldn't change, because it was inaninamate. Doll found it curious that it even desired to change its expression. Must be Spirit within, desperate to reach out to those outside. If Doll could laugh, it would. Instead, Doll looked on, its wide, empty eyes staring back unblinking at those attending the party. Its vacant smile frozen on its cracked, porcelain face. A single drop of blood dripped from its shiny black shoe. The dim light in the room meant the blood would likely go unnoticed. Good. Nobody needed to notice anything. They just needed to keep drinking the ridiculously named libations, lowering their inhibitions and start making terrible choices. The Spirit within stirred something fierce, desperate to stop Doll, knowing its exact, horrific plans.

The evening wears on and on into the wee hours, perfect hours for them honestly.  All the enchanting people were here, this is such a marvelous party.  She wondered why it was only held on this most special and auspicious time of year, why not all the time, why not later this month? Surely they all have things to be grateful for, ghosts, goblins, werewolves and witches ....what a joyous time everyone would have.  She made a mental note to herself to speak with Gomez about this once they retired to their own home and their own chamber of horrors; for that, she simply could not wait.

.The Great Pumpkin.  



 



The treats on the menu beckoned the pumpkin away from the likes of Charlie Brown. Each movement was perfectly pumped intended, and once she got ahold of a menu the painted on smile of the pumpkin across her belly widened. She flipped through it and watched the others curiously. Some costumes went over her head, but she grabbed a few ange wings, and a muffin to munch on. She didn't order Smith's Decoded Pumpkin Pie. Because she wasn't the great carnivorous pumpkin. Her small steps carry over to the doll that caught her attention earlier. Pumpkins got along with dolls just grand, as long as they didn't have carving materials. After stuffing her cheeks of treats, she teetered around the spot at the bar checking the doll out closer. Was that paint dripping from its shoe?
