      We are looking forward to the costumes our denizens create for the ball, and wish to remind all that you should be contacting an Inner clothier concerning them prior to the Fifth Day of the next moon. All other orders for garments and jewelry are due by that date, as well.

      We are enjoying the submissions currently sent for our contests and encourage all to continue working. You may submit more than one entry in each category, but may only win one prize in each. You can win in multiple categories, however.
