… Through the door and into a place quite different from the casual warmth of the bar.

Deep cherry velvet carpets the antique wooden floors of the balcony that surrounds the ballroom; the grand staircase is about five paces from the door, directly before the doorway.

 

To the left of the staircase is a small, freestanding and solemn sign, pointing to an open doorway further down on the left, reading ‘Mask Room.’ Billy Batson, dressed to the nines in polished black, stands by the banister to give directions and general assistance.



From here you can see the revelry below.

 

[ooc: fyi - There is an actual Grand Staircase thread to be found here. The banister thread is for those not yet ready to make their entrances. Sorry for my terrible vagueness.]

*Meg's mask is . . . mostly feathers.

Pink feathers.

She looks kind of like a flamingo, except they're usually not so stubby.

Also, it's number 23!*

Draco had heard about the Ball of course, and was dressed properly. Dress wizard robes. Very fine ones indeed. As for a mask? He obtained an elegant and elaborate dragon mask. He made a note in the ledger about it and the number.

Number 72, it was, in fact.

It doesn't take long for Gren to find a mask that seems as if it was made just for him, some sort of cosmic joke, perhaps, or maybe just some sort of cosmic opportunity. He picks up the mask, signs the very fancy ledger, and makes his way toward the grand staircase. He'll put on the mask just before he gets there.

Parker runs his fingers over one before taking it, dark blue and arching up, it covers his whole head, hiding the shaven head. He looks like a bird, something fantastic and foreign.

'56' he writes and leaves.

Patrick may have his mask, but Mary Anne needs to make a stop here.

She takes a moment to study the variety of false faces, before selecting one.

The mask covers the upper half of her face, colored so white (like bone) as to almost glow. It's textured faintly, with delicate raised lines not immediately noticed at first glance.

She slips it on, leaving Mary Anne -- #22 in the ledger.

Arawn came into the room, selecting an appropriate mask.

It had been quite some time since he had gone to a party.

He signed his name with a flourish, noting #43 in the book.

Jill's mask is nothing too ornate and that's the way she had hoped it would be. A silver mask, she wandered over to the ledger and signed her name to it and the mask number.

Number 21

Cywyllog had managed to arrive at the bar early enough this evening, and gather her dress and mask from the bar itself. Since then, she's been primping and preparing in a temporary room.

Now, nervous and excited, she arrives perfectly dressed and masqued, and shyly peers around, still adjusting to seeing with the thing on.

Susan saw the sign for the fancy dress party and decided it would be fun. Sometimes she likes to slip off on her own, and this is one such night.

Her mask is one of peacock feathers and she is dressed in a blue gown of her own design.

"Good evening. Are you the hostess of this event?"

Molly is waiting for Cain to catch up. She isn't sure why he needed to make a side trip, but she approaches the masked usher on the balcony with a smile. She has a keen idea of who it is behind the mask, but she won't spoil the evening by saying so.


Who she is would be painfully obvious to anyone who knows her by her curly hair, no matter how fancy it looks pulled up in front.


She'll wait for Cain here, so that they can make their entrace together.

Shalla is not exactly certain why she's here, other than it looked like fun and the dress she is wearing is quite pretty. But she's still a bit confused, and the banister looks like quite a nice place.

Which would be why she's headed over there.
