"Students of Hogwarts,

As the spring dries and the grounds bloom with every color imaginable, we will host a May Day ball. Our hope is to foster further House unity, while allowing the students a chance to 'let their hair down' and enjoy the limited time before exam preparation comes full force. Hogsmeade will be open to students in fifth year or higher for traditional celebrations, however we encourage all students to attend the masked ball at sunset in the Great Hall.

Students are advised to discard their House colors for the evening, and further encouraged to costume as fictional characters from stories new and old. Do not lose the enclosed ticket, Messrs. Filch and Hagrid will turn students without a ticket back to their Common Room.

Minerva McGonagall
Headmistress"

May Day Masquerade

Any festivities, no matter how well organized, are bound to have a little madness. Thankfully, this time there truly is only a little!

Before students can attend the ball, they need to not just buy their outfits, but decide what they're even going to dress as! With a literary theme hanging overhead, help the students plan their costume in The Masque and the Red Dress.

The day of the ball finds all the students scrambling over each other to retrieve all the pieces of their costume, from the top of the owlery to the bottoms of the dungeons. Help find The Missing Mask, as well as all the other missing items so everyone can have fun!

Can't have a ball without dancing! With very few students representing their House, the hope that students would truly mingle with each other seems to have come to fruition. No matter where you linger in the Great Hall, you hear students asking, "May I have this dance?"

Though it's no fun having the surprise of who's dressed as what character ruined before the night's over, some people can't resist trying to guess the mysteries away. Dance your way through the crowds and take a guess for yourself in Dancing Dreams!

Don't forget to check out the Student Corkboard and watch the Student Hangout's Watch Thread for regular updates on what is going on inside the walls of the castle.

For the Missing Mask, are the clues site wide?

@Kestrel-Winter They are not sitewide, they'll be limited to The Library and the 2nd Floor Hallways.

for the scav hunt, The Missing Mask

Quote:
Everyone who participates will automatically get 1 ticket towards the main prizes.


does this mean even if we just send in a few clues and do not have a100% correct entry?
do we have to finish the hunt and get it all correct to get a ticket towards the main prizes?

You don't have to be 100% correct to get a participation ticket, but you do have to be 100% correct to get a ticket toward that contest's specific prizes (the small House Points awards and the bonus tickets)

It's more to recognize that people get stuck and can't figure out a clue to be able to move on. I'm not going to advocate anybody just do a few steps to get a participation ticket as that goes against the spirit of the contest; rather, I encourage you give it a good faith effort and try for the house points and extra tickets

Will the graphics one be judged more on idea than graphics itself?
Also, can it be ANY literary character?

What we stated in regards to judging was "creativity, originality, and adherence to the prompt."

And yes, it can be any literary character as long as it's not from Harry Potter, since that's where your first character has to be from

With May I Have This Dance, do we have to use the same character each time?
