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 Devilís 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 carefulÖyou may not be able to leave if you eat something from this room.

~*~Black Masquerade Rules~*~

First and foremost, all Crossroads rules apply.

Since this is an anonymous thread, we ask that you title each post with your costume. So if you're going as a pink bunny, your posts should start with something along the lines of:
The Pink Bunny
And follow that with your post.
(Note: we do allow a small picture at the top of the post, so long as you still describe your costume. This is a writing site after all!)

Remember to stay in the character of your costume the whole time! The point is for no one to know who you are! As with any thread, one liners are greatly discouraged.

Most importantly: Have fun!
***This thread will be open from October 27th until November 5th, so you have plenty of time to join and interact with everyone!***

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, fakeóyet oddly real lookingóspiders handing from the webs. Bats will occasionally fly around the ceiling, but donít worry they wonít 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.

At the bar and each of the tables, is the menu, as well as a list of what can be won throughout 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.

Black Masquerade

The Hostess
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.

The Grim Reaper

He made his way to the room with the hood of his flowing, floor-length black robe pulled up, scythe in one hand and his white skull mask in place. As he entered, he nodded at the Hostess before heading to one of the tables to look at the menu.

Black Masquerade

Poison Ivy
Halloween used to be the girlís favorite time of year for reasons not like most. Now, she was a bit more melancholy about it. She wanted to get out and have fun though, so she dug out a costume she had once worn to a masquerade the last time she was here. It was one of her favorite costumes and she felt like she related to the character in more ways than one.

She slipped into a strapless green leotard that was covered in leaves. Green ankle boots covered her feet. She teased her hair with a hairspray that also served as a temporary red hair dye. A green masquerade mask, also adorned with leaves, was secured to her face. She touched up some make up and finished the look with a deep red lipstick.

Ivy arrived at the club, got searched and made her way in. It had changed since the last time she had been there, but she was really digging the atmosphere. A quick look around showed that only one other costumed figure had arrived. The rest of the folks appeared to be staff.

She took a seat at a table somewhat close to the Grim Reaper. Close enough to be heard over the music, she hoped, ďI hope you're not looking to collect tonight,Ē she joked.

Black Masquerade


Finally the day was here!   Her stomach twisting in knots as the time slowly ticked away. Forcing herself to focus on what had to be done, painting her finger and toenails  black, letting them dry as she wondered what to do to her face until a feeling washed over her. Looking at another clock, the time was here.   


The long, black dress was a  velvet looking material with gold trim.  A belt that matched the material curled and tied around her small waist.  Another that would be longer and crossed over her chest as the rest of the lenght cascaded down her arms, taking on a long scarf appearence. Looking down, the length was perfect.  Now wasn't the time to become overly excited.  Grabbing her brush, brushing back her locks into a high bun, that smile returned as she looked at the head piece.  Placing the brush down carefully, picking up the headpiece, placing it carefully on her head, everything seemd to fit perfectly.  Her fingers curled and twisted around each snake, making them bend certain ways, more realistic.  Now it was time for the face.   Putting in contacts were difficult but once they were in, they looked like gold snake eyes.    Grabbing the make up, she hoped this would really work....although her eyes were already freakiing her out.   The bronze colored make up, covered over her pale skin, even the lipstick was bronze in color.   Once her face was done, putting the rest of the make up down, digits curling around the snake arm bracelet and slid it on.   Once it was on, she still had to cover her exposed body.  Taking off all her jewelry, she picked up the body paint that matched her face.   Hopefully it would come off.  But holding her breath, she slowly painted her skin.  It felt so weird but any exposed skin was completel covered in bronze colored body paint.   Two hours later, she left the bathroom and padded her way into her bedroom and over to the long body mirror.   Slipping her feet into the gold, high heel sandals,  she turned slowly around.    This disguise had to work.  She definitely didn't recognize herelf.   Once her bare arms dried, she curled the long fabric around her arms.    Her lips curled into a devious grin as she left her house. Walking into the Club, she took slow but steady steps.  Looking around, she didn't even smile but let her eyes scan the surroundings.  Taking a seat at the bar, twisting her chair around, she didn't know what to expect but the decorations were great!    -Oh, I hope tonight will be fun.-

Black Masquerade



Wilma walked into the festivities hall, smoothing her white mini dress before primping her bright red hair. The rather lacking in coverage of the costume left her with a shiver in the October air outside.

The bouncer did a quick check for weapons before letting her on her way.

Bare feet padded against the smooth, somewhat cold, floor. The first order of business was drinks. Well, in all actuality, that would probably consist of her whole night. Drinks and snacks. The Masquerade always had the most inventive things that were 'odd', though satisfiying.

She cast her eyes about the room to take in some of the other guests, loving each of the costumes she spotted. Such great imaginations! This year, she could tell, was going to be great, even if she was oozing nervousness. Social situations were difficult.

Wilma, however, gave a very Wilma giggle and reached for a drink. More than one actually. She quickly downed a Black Widow Shot and a Zombie Slime Shot before ordering herself two glasses of Cercei's Golden Champagne to sip on. She then reached for a napkin and placed two of the Ghost Cakes upon it.

She looked over the room for the tables. She spied one that seemed to be to her liking. She would be able to see people coming and going, and anyone who may be looking for her would be able to spot her as well.

Wilma kept a small smile on her lips, welcoming anyone to chat with her. Again, that made her a little nervous, but this party was all about overcoming things of that nature. Everyone was dressed up and allowed to just be their character.

She smiled as she sipped her champagne, waiting to see who would come in next, ready to be awed by another great costume.

The Grim Reaper


He chuckled darkly at Poison Ivy. He had to admire her costume as well, despite not being a comic book fan. "Not for the time being, as I've made my quota for today," he replied smoothly.

Black Masquerade

 The Fox


The woman scruncitied her reflection in the body length mirror. Her eyes traced her body as she made sure her outfit was exactly as she imagined it would be. Her dress was a stunning gold and black. It was low cut with sheer gold lace following down the plummeting neckline to her navel. Elegant swirls of gold stood out again the black base of the dress. A slit started from her left upper thigh and went straight down her leg. The dress barely touched the floor. Her gold ribbon laced heels peeked through the slit in her dress. Her gaze went back to her upper body were a modest amount of cleavage was shown. Golden glitter sparkled against her lightly tanned skin. She adjusted her inch thick ribbon style straps then began touching up her ruby red lipstick.

The woman reached for a black lace fox style mask and grinned as she placed it on her face. Once her mask was in place she adjusted her hair, which was in a messy yet elegant bun. Two strands laid curled and cascaded down either side of her face. Her eyes were painted with thick cat like liner and golden/burnt orange color. She was ready. The woman did a spin in the mirror then tossed a wink at her reflection before stepping out of the house and making her way to the club.

It didn’t take too long for her to reach the club. It looked like she was not the first person here either. The woman stopped at the weapons checkpoint and let the guard pat her down. It was funny, she never really carried weapons. Hers were her teeth and claws when she shifted but, she as sure they had certain spells cast to prevent her from shifting. As she entered the club she noted the other patrons in their costumes. Hers wasn’t very creative, she was basically dressing up and wearing a fox mask, but hey as long as it hid her identity she didn't care.

Tonight she would be known as the Fox. The woman tossed a smile towards the other patrons as she made her way to the bar to order something with a high alcohol content.

Black Masquerade



She was just a ball of nerves and once a few more came in, she slightly relaxed. Fixing herself so she sat more correctly in the seat, right leg crossing over the left one,  she smiled but when she did, her fangs would be seen.  If anything, it completed her custome.  She was there to simply have fun.  Reptile eyes looked over at the others sitting near.   

" Hello Everyone."  

She wasn't normally one to speak unless spoken to and even though it just started, she couldn't wait to see more come in.  Head turning to see the bartender, she ordered a Vampire's Kiss Martini.  Hands clasping together,  eyes fixed on her black painted nails.  -maybe I should always paint them black-  she thought.   But then her gaze broke as the bartender brought over her drink.  Instead of taking a drink right away, her hands unclasped and slowly came down, merely hovering over the glass.  Right hand came down just a tad lower so that one digit played along the rim.   Head slightly turning to see the others.

" Halloween is soo much fun! just started...but still.."

Black Masquerade

Fred Flintstone

Before walking in, Fred straightened his one piece orange and black patterned pull over. His blue makeshift tie was almost too tight around his neck. He wasnít too fond of the decision to wear huge shoes resembling feet, although it was better than showing off his big hairy Hobbit like feet. At first glance, Fred was immediately impressed by the set up. The blinding lava and the smell of black leather set the mood for what he thought will be an exciting and eventful soiree. Cool, the Grim Reaper is here. The dude almost looks real. I think Iím going avoid making eye contact with that guy tonight. He proceeded forward into the club and accidentally kicked a few chairs. These darn shoes are going to be the death of me, I can feel it.

Starting off slow wasnít what he intended; after all itís a party, and he thought the open bar was an brilliant idea. He took extra-long exaggerated steps to avoid kicking anything or anybody. Out of his peripheral he noticed the green beauty hanging out on the other side of the room. Oh my, strapless green leotards. Suddenly, Iím hungry for a salad. Damn and sheís got some junk in the trunk. Hoping to avoid making a fool of himself, he takes even longer steps. Yet again, a chair falls to the ground and a table squeaks across the floor. Okay, okay, just walk normal. Iím sure by now the Medussa chick probably thinks Iím a moron.

At the bar he helps himself to a couple Zombie Slime Shooters and chased them both down with a shot of Black Widow. Fred squinted at the hand gestures the bouncer was making. Using his index and middle finger the bouncer pointed at his eye and quickly pointed at Fred as to say that he has his eyes on him. With a nod and a thumbs up, Fred assured the bouncer that everything was okay.

Mixing a martini he noticed beauty at its purest form. A red head in the white who shined brighter than the glowing walls. His heart skipped a beat and it seemed to melt away. What a coincidence it is that someone would be dressed as Wilma and I as Fred. Perhaps Iíll go over and introduce myself.

Fred made his way through the obstacle course of tables and chairs being careful to not them over.

Black Masquerade

The Fox sipped happily on her Vampire Kiss Martini she ordered from the bar. There were more than enough festive choices but this one caught her eye. A few more of those and she would be set for the majority of the night. There was only a handful of guests so far, but she expected there to be a larger turn out as the night continued.

Her eyes locked on a woman dressed as Medusa sitting not too far away from her. She had ordered the same drink, maybe that was an opening for conversation. The Fox offered her a bright smile as she spoke, ďHaving fun yet? Iím excited for what the night holds. I havenít even attended a costume party.Ē The woman lifted her martini to her lips and took a long drink.

Her gaze left Medusa and fell upon Fred and Wilma Flintstone. Did they plan this or was it pure coincidence? It would be pretty comical if it was coincidence. But thatís what tonight is for, making connections! It was rather interesting to see how others interacted with each other. The Fox was definitely a people watcher.

Black Masquerade


Hearing the fox, Medusa nodded.   

"I've never been to one of these. Always wanted to but never had the courgae. But I'm so glad I did!  So far so good. I can't wait to see who else shows...more like..what else shows."


Just as she finished her sentence, she heard something pretty loud and had to turn to see what or who it was.  It was clear to her that this...person dressed as Fred Flinstone had a hard time navigating and she couldn't help but laugh. She didn't mean for it to come across as mean but it was something she would've done, if not worse.  Biting her lower lip, she turned away for she didn't want to embrass him either.  However, it was rather cute that he found Wilma. 

-Aww, they're so cute.  Hopefully they hit if off.-   She thought to herself.   Picking up her glass, she took a sip of her drink and couldn't help but find it delightful.

"Well that was fun to watch...I would most likely do much worse...anyway, are you having fun?"
