    Realness – A long time ago, on a runway, in a galaxy far far away...
    Schoolboy - Anakin Skywalker was a padawan for years before he was a full on Jedi. Padawans (Jedi apprentice) always have a braid and Jedi Robes.
    MF: Charm the judges like a suave, bad-boy Han Solo. He always wore a vest and NEVER went anywhere without his blaster.
    Schoolboy/girl: Anakin Skywalker was a padawan for years before he was a full on Jedi. Padawans (Jedi apprentice) always have a braid and Jedi Robes. This is open OTA MF AND FF.
    FF: When you think of Princess Leia, you visualize that iconic white dress and cinnamon bun hair. Serve us in a white dress. Cinnamon bun hair optional (but you know you can werk it.)
    Face - Metallics, Metallics, Metallics! I want to see galaxies in your eyes so do not skimp on the glitter.
    Bizarre – Show the judges the alien haute couture of far off planets. You MUST include a regal headpiece. Think Queen Amidala.
    Performance – I want to see flowing fabrics that mimic the flight of a shooting star. Your dips will be like the impact of a meteor crashing to earth.
    Shoe Fetish – I want a shoe that is out of this world! Sneakers that can take you past lightspeed or a heel that is SKY HIGH!!!
    Ovah Heel – I want a heel that is out of this world! Sky high!!!
    BQUIP – I want the regal command of Star Trek Enterprise Captain Picard with the femininity of Captain Janeway. Don’t forget to exude sexiness like Diona Troy or 7 of 9.
    Body – You’ve just woken up from your cryogenic sleep in nothing but your space undergarments. Think Charlize Theron's Captain Vickers in Prometheus, but make it HOTT!!!
    Sex Siren – You’re an alien suitor from a far off planet. Seduce our judges and our celebrant while showing as much of that “heavenly body” as possible!
    Runway – Are you Sailor Moon or Tuxedo Mask?
    European must wear white gloves and incorporate a red bow in their effects.
    All American must wear a mask and present the debutante with a rose.
    OTA Best Dressed – Do you dare show up to the ball and upstage the celebrant? What would you wear to a formal gala in space? FF, DO NOT forget your clutch. MF, you need a little something that's silver.
    By attending this ball you are consenting to being photographed and filmed so MAKE THIS BALL HOTT!!!
    There will be an interactive photobooth installation by Diana Lynn VanderMeulen, Inez Genereux and Paul Hillier Photography so even if you are not walking, come DRESSED to IMPRESS!!!
