Sequin's Stitch Spectacular

Masqurade Ticket Image

Part One

Fabric flew at light speed around Sequin’s flat, catching the sunlight that fluttered through the bay windows. She moved her swatches across the half-dressed mannequin, hoping to find the perfect ruff for the skirt of her dress. She squinted, flipping between two shades of seafoam that the normal eye would find menially different. The left swatch settled in her mind, going best with the soft orange of the bodice. She looked back to her sketches, pinning the fabric in place before stepping back to observe it in the light. She’d spent the day sauntering about town, buying the beautiful handmade fabrics that dotted the markets of Stonewing, grabbing any little bit or bob that caught her eye. She’d built up years of familiarity with these vendors, many used to her interests and happy to set aside a piece they think she’d adore. Most of the time, they were correct.

Sequin basked in the view of her still unfinished creation, and a smile creeped further up her face. She always outdid herself. She couldn’t wait to see the creations that her guests would bring, each one a unique fingerprint of its owner. How others used the medium of clothing constantly inspired her, and knew that this year, her party would be spectacular. She’d spent the week prior flying across Skire, dropping invitations everywhere she went in hopes she’d attract people from every corner of the continent. Stonewing was not the easiest to reach, but she vowed to find a way to get anyone there who wanted to be, and welcomed them with open arms.

Sequin the Gravent

Part Two

Hello my esteemed creators!” Sequin called across the hall, cheers erupting back in response. Her heart swelled with the sound of so many in one place. Each one wore a beautiful piece of their own creation or commission, each with themselves in mind. Some aimed for comfort, some aimed for practicality, some aimed for extravagance, and to Sequin, each one meant just as much as the last.

The runway walk will begin soon! Those who wish to join, please find your way to the stage!” Sequin twirled, throwing her arm up in a bright flourish to beacon everyone towards her. From atop the stage, she observed the ornate hall, its pillars towering, covered in ribbons, glittering decor, sparkling with magical glitter. Beautiful catered food lined the walls and filled the air with the sweet scent of pastries and desserts.

As the night continued, so did the festivities, each partygoer showing off their hard work atop the stage, lit by shimmering lights, personalities shining through. Sequin adored the celebration, her mind already spinning with the next event’s plan, her inspiration reinvigorated as it was each time she laid eyes upon a new creation.
