A Lion King Tribute Ball
August 16th, 2019
The Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen St W
It’s the Circle of Life
and it moves us all
through despair and hope,
through faith and love,
till we find our place
on the path unwinding
in the Circle of Life…
Join the House of Xclusive Lanvin for a ball that will take you down the runway and into the wild and lush world of the Lion King… whether it’s by voguing through the jungle or pumping down the savannah, tonight’s ballroom stage will require our competitors to be truly lionhearted.
Special guests and prizes soon to be announced!
••• CATEGORIES •••
GRAND PRIZE – TAG TEAM PERFORMANCE – $500
The Circle of Life. The Lion King is about sharing teachings between generations and honouring the legacies that came before you. In matching effects inspired by any Lion King character, your tag team must contain one new generation performer (walking 3 years or less) and one previous generation performer (walking for more than 3 years)
MINI GRAND – BEST DRESSED – $150
Animal prints and furs are a staple of Fall/Winter fashion, but it’s hot as the savannah outside. Bring it in a high fashion look that uses animal print or feathers appropriate for an end of Summer garden party.
MINI GRAND – OTA RUNWAY – $150
While the animal kingdom may be in turmoil at large, the shaman Rafiki sees that destruction and growth are part of the universe’s process. In a look inspired by the mandrill and its unique colouring, let your walk rise above the petty troubles of the Pride Lands.
MINI GRAND – TEAM REALNESS – $150
Hyenas take charge of any situation by rolling deep and trusting each other. Show us why your clique could stroll through the Pridelands and the Elephant Graveyard unbothered. In cohesive, predominantly gray looks, bring three different subcategories of realness to the floor in a cohesive lo (BQUID, FQ, Butch, Transman, BQ Exec, BQ Thug, BQ Prettyboy, BQ Schoolboy)
Hakuna matata! Let loose and hit the floor in an effect inspired by any Lion King character.
– FF: Sarabi, Sarafina, Nala… The regal lionesses of Pride Rock were strong, beautiful. and even seductive. In a lioness effect, bat your eyes in tribute to Nala’s sultry gaze.
– MF: When Simba looks deep into his face’s own reflection, his father appears to him through the night stars. Bring it in a night sky effect complete with twinkling stars.
Can you feel the love tonight? Enchant the panel in a seductive jungle look.
HAIR & NAIL AFFAIR
A lion wears its mane proud for all to see — but get too close, and you might just see its claws instead. Bring an ovah set of matching hair and nails inspired by any big cat of the wild – lions, tigers, panthers, oh my! Let’s have fun.
COM VS COM
The Lion King is a musical after all! Remix any song from the Lion King. For battles, you’ll pick a Lion King related word or phrase out of a hat to chop up with.
An eerie and unfamiliar place of danger and wonder, Simba’s trip to the Elephant Graveyard is where it all begins. Use bones and skulls to give us a taste of the unknown territories just beyond the horizon.”
