    What: Halloween "Party" feat. The Headless Hunt
    Who: Hosted by Cee/The Leisure Sports Club. All students, ghosts & professors are invited!
    Where: The Leisure Sports Club ~area in Hogwarts.
    Why: Halloween!
    When: October 29th - the free period between lunch and dinner.
    Forum: No need, I'd say?

    The Leisure Sports club is hosting Halloween activities! Cee used her dad's shiny Quidditch celebrity connections to invite the Headless Hunt so they can play Head Polo and Horseback Head-Juggling! Once those games are done, the living and the dead can shmooze in a garden party of sorts. There will be a modest buffet (because Hogwarts students are hosting this, yo).

    What: A "Wilde" Safari Masquerade
    Who: @Philippa Wilde and sorta @Ignatius Wilde are hosting the masquerade. A blanket invite was sent to all UC folk with at least a rep 4. Some MC invites were sent out but only to those of rep 5.
    Where: The Wilde Home in London
    Why: Because I suck and never did her debute or bday ball To join in the festivities of fall and Halloween.
    When: October 21st
    Forum: Nope

    Philippa has taken it upon herself to throw a masquerade for extra hurling fun despite the fact the true season is over. With a safari theme, attendees are expected to be in costume fitting of the theme. Those without at least a mask will be turned away at the door. Enjoy an evening with exotic foods with rain forest decorations all around. One will feel as though they've entered the rain forest themselves minus the muggy humidity and disease infested mosquitoes. Dancing galore with a back patio open for fresh air and a chance for quiet in the gardens.

    What: Dippet Halloween Bash
    Who: Technically Armando's hosting but LBR we all know it's entirely Ophelia's idea/planning. UCAB and notable upper-middle-class AB, Rep 4+, and no one who has recently been slandered in WW because she's impressionable like that. Except the Crouches because Nova would probably be angry with her if she disinvited them. Female attendees must be either already debuted or current PSYR students. No half-veela of either gender.
    Where: Dippet residence, London.
    Why: BECAUSE SOMEONE HAD TO THROW A HALLOWEEN PARTY and also because OMG OPHELIA IS ENGAGED and wants to prove she's going to be the bestest society wife ever by throwing an amazing Halloween party / showing off to all her friends.
    When: Evening of the 27th because Halloween is on a Tuesday ew =P
    Forum: Yes please! HERE

    The entire first floor of the Dippet home has been once again magically transformed for the party; guests enter the house via a horror-filled labyrinth and must navigate to the center in order to reach the large dance floor. The labyrinth is not intended to be difficult and the things inside it are not expressly dangerous, but a few mishaps could certainly be had with a stray spell or rogue creature. Servants will be around dispatching thematic refreshments throughout the night and the entire house will be lit by wandering floating candles, which means there might be plenty of shadows at certain points to hide in for shenanigans ;) it also means if you are not paying attention and accidentally run into one of the candles you could catch fire so there's that

    Costumes are required for admittance and small prizes will be given out for the following categories*:
    Best Costume (Male)
    Best Costume (Female)
    Most Realistic Costume
    Best Use of Magic
    Most Creative Costume

    *Armando is in charge of deciding who wins these as Ophelia's way of paying lip service to the fact that it's technically his party so they may or may not actually be given out, but the prizes totally exist.

    What: Stephen Flint's Obligatory Campaign Ball
    Who: Hosted by Stephen Flint, though his mother has done most of the planning simply because she likes that shit and Stephen does not. Invited are all UCPB/UBHBs with a reputation of 4+, and notable UCMBs are also invited. Any members of his department apart from half-breeds and people with reputations less than 3 are also invited to attend, regardless of class (though they must be dressed appropriately!). Notable (business owners and ministry members) MCPB/MCHBs are also invited!

    When: October 29th
    Forum: Nope!
    In an effort to fund the Irvingly Library and institute a Summer Tutoring program at the library, the Scamanders are hosting a Ride a Hippogriff event on their Wellingtonshire property. Rides are by donation, so pay what you can. There will also be a book donation for the library, any one who donates a book will be entered into a raffle for a donation of an entire year's worth of textbooks, paid for by the Scamanders, that can be awarded to a student in need on behalf of who wins; unless they need it themselves of course! In addition there will be Unicorns for the little ones to pet, various other creatures on the property to interact with, a few fair games and light refreshments, donated by Honeyduke's.

    Who: Ophelia Dippet to host. Invited: @November Malfoy @Porphyria Dempsey @Eva Sleptova @Autumn Avery @Nathalie Jennings @Lucinda Cavanaugh @Calliope Riley and some UCAB/MCAB female NPC friends. If you think you have someone who might be friendly enough with Ophelia to attend, LMK. The party is small but not exclusive.
    Where: Dippet house on a magically created balcony. It's actually just a room on the second floor with the walls vanished so that they can people watch/snark at passersby, but since it's technically indoors they don't have to worry about weather/being snooped on themselves.
    Why: Because my bby got engaged!
    When: 20 October, afternoon (lunch & tea time)
    Forum: Nope! This is just a PSA; anyone above, holler at me if you want a thread and I'll start one but otherwise just assume it happened and was grand.

    What: Barnabas Skeeter Campaign Luncheon
    Who: Hosted by Barney (and his campaign) for voting men and women (UC/MC and women influential to men who can vote), people in his department, anyone in the MoM and shopowners/workers because he wants to seem #inclusive
    Where: Hogsmeade Ballroom
    Why: #barney4MoM
    When: October 24
    Forum: Nope

    He'll have an informal buffet style luncheon with coffee and tea (so cultured, ya know since he solved that month-long improper use of magic case in the States and discovered how much he liked it then). "Swag bags" will be given to attendees that include: little pamphlets that say why people should vote for him complete with a rather charming portrait of himself waving and being all friendly, a special badge people can wear that say "Vote for Skeeter" to show their support, and then treats, beauty samples and little free samples of different shop items because he's really trying to appeal to the female population + shop owners.

    What: Marcus Lytton's Birthday Party
    Who: CELEBRITIES. Seriously. All UC/MC people who have a presence in society. Socialites, Quidditch sponsors, debs, popular gents, Ministry people, other ~society types. As long as they don't have terrible reps (3+), they should be good to go! No vampires, veelas, etc.
    Where: Marcus' London house
    Why: To celebrate his birthday
    When: October 22nd
    Forum: Nah

    It'll be a cocktail party of sorts. They will gather at Marcus' magically enlarged parlor and the garden outside. There will be light music and a small dancefloor for anyone inclined to dance, though it won't be a strictly ball if that makes sense. It'll be decorated in the House of Lytton colours, aka turquoise and gold.

    Guests are encouraged to be creative with their outfits. That doesn't mean come in costume, just try hard with styling. Marcus envisions this as an event where the next big trends will be born.

    Why: Self explanatory.
    When: 23th October
    Forum: Nope nope nope
    Ichabod is aloof but generally polite to halfbloods and muggleborns, but affable with purebloods, and known purists.  It is unlikely that he would have given you a reason to think he was an ass.

    What: Eleanora Brownhill's Campaign Kick-Off Ball
    Who: Hosted by Eleanora's campaign for the voting public, general admission with special invites going out to friends and businesses in Hogsmeade.
    Where: Hogsmeade Ballroom
    Why: Furthering political ambitions and fundraising
    When: October 31st
    Forum: Nope!

    Since it's a Tuesday, the event will be hosted at night (8PM-Midnight). The ballroom will be appropriately decorated for the holiday and guests will be gently encouraged (but not required) to wear costumes. There'll be dinner and dancing and general schmoozing. Ellie will say some inspiring words at some point. Guests will be gifted with bags of candy that also include shiny election pamphlets. Donations to the campaign will be accepted all night. There will also be an announcement regarding donations wherein it will be revealed that half of all the money she receives for the entire campaign will be gifted to various charities. Yay charity!

    There will be food and champagne served. Due to the fact that the 26th is on a Thursday, the event will begin at 6 PM, but guests are welcome to come by later given the day of the week. Though close to the date, costumes are not required, though it is asked that guests arrive in formal wear.
