DUST THE COBWEBS OFF THOSE HORNS AND THAT TIN OF SNAZAROO THAT I SEE QUIETLY MOLDERING UNDER YOUR INTERESTS IN DANGAN RONPAS AND THAT THING WITH THE NAKED GIANTS.
I HAVE. SOMETHING IMPORTANT. TO TELL YOU.
Dearest, darling, sweet precious Homestucks. You’ve been waiting. And waiting. And waiting some more. For half a year now. Waiting for the gigapause to end. Waiting for the game to be released. In fact, it seems like all you do is wait, and quite frankly, you’re tired of waiting.
Lo, your wait is over.
Homestuck Prom 2014 Endstuck
The prom season is upon us once more, and with it comes the long-awaited “Senior Year” of Tumblr Homestuck Prom! We’re back again, for our third consecutive year running, with more SICK PROM SHENANIGANS to tickle your fancy than ever before. And why?
As you may have noticed, we’re currently in limbo. One huge pause before it all goes down and our beloved webcomic comes to an end. The metaphorical calm before the veritable shitstorm. So why not throw the BIGGEST, RADDEST HOMESTUCK PROM YET, so as to welcome the IMPENDING END with a hearty “Bring. It. On.”!
WHERE IS IT?: Here on Tumblr, of course! Homestuckprom is a primarily online event, and this blog is the epicenter of the festivities. However, you’re free to celebrate in any means IRL you choose? Wanna’ grab a few friends and host a chatroom on prom night? Do that! Thinking of going full out and organizing an entire meet? That’s cool too! Your Homestuck Prom experience is totally up to you, but all the action is going to go down right here~
WHEN IS IT?: This year’s Prom will the place on Friday, the 23rd of May, @ 6:00 PM, Central Time.
WHAT THE FUCK IS HOMESTUCK PROM?: What’s that you say? You’re not familiar with Homestuck Prom? Well, it’s simple really. Homestuck Prom is an annual online event where users don their snazziest Homestuck cosplays and formal finery, and take to the internet for a night of games, and chatrooms, and GENERAL PROM-TIME SHENANIGANS. This year we’re introducing even more RAD STUFF, like an official stream room, and voting for “Cutest Quadrants”!
Still hopelessly confused in the thinkpan? Don’t you even worry about it friend, we’ve got you covered.
We made you a whole about page for that express purpose. You’re welcome.
Follow homestuckprom.tumblr.com to find out more, track #homestuckprom for news, announcements & upd8s on PROM COURT, the annual DANCE-OFF, and MORE COOL STUFF, and don’t forget to reblog and spread the word!
We’re back, kids. And…
THE END IS NIGH.
If you’re feeling the urge to bust a groove and would like to do so by entering the 2nd ANNUAL HOMESTUCK PROM DANCE OFF™ start by sending us a video!
Here’s some rules:
The video must be of you dancing. Pretty self explanatory.
Your video must be set to…whatever music you want this year!(See section below for explanation).
You can shoot this with a webcam, have someone film you, or whatever else you want, it doesn’t matter to us. The point is, you’ll probably have to get filmed somehow in order for this video to exist.
Got a dance partner? A crew? A twerk team? You can enter in pairs or groups as well if you so choose! The more the merrier, right?
Your in-video attire must be Homestuck-cosplay related in some way. Mind you, you don’t have to break it down in your full ball gown, or your finest pair of Summoner horns (although that would be pretty impressive). Partial cosplays, genderbends, AUs, and fan-based anythings are perfectly fine. You don’t need to be dressed to the nines, or anything, but at the very least, wear a t-shirt. This is a Homestuck event, after all~
You have until May 19th to submit your video!
Q: But…didn’t we all have to dance to the same song last year?
A: So, back in 2013, a number of people took issue with the fact that they had to dance to a set song last year (even though Ke$ha’s “Die Young” is both a musical masterpiece, and hilariously relevant to the plot of Homestuck), to the point where their (deeply misguided) aversion to the music selection prevented them from entering altogether. But that’s not cool, and that shit just ain’t gonna’ fly this year. We want you guys to have fun with this! So here’s what I propose for the 2nd ANNUAL HOMESTUCK PROM DANCE-OFF™. Instead of forcing everyong to film themselves dancing to the same song, this year you can dance to whatever the fuck you want to! Yeah. Go wild. Submit your dance-off entries to us, and we’ll post them on prom night. In addition, we’ll also be compiling these submissions into a single, “official” dance-off video like last year’s. The video will be set to a song that you guys’ll get to choose via poll. That way everyone’s happy~ But, by all means, if you still want to dance to the selected song, go right ahead!
Anyone and everyone can enter regardless of skill level or ability, so don’t be discouraged or shy! Flail those limbs confidently. Jump wildly. Pelvic thrust proudly. And most importantly, have fun! You don’t have to be an exceptional dancer, heck, you don’t even have to be a serious dancer. Bring your sickest moves and show us what you’ve got!
