What happens if you gather many young people, some alcohol, loud music and exotic lighting?
Now in this recipe let’s add a little bit of a mystery too- end result equals fabulous MASQUERADE PARTY!
Yes you heard it correctly! It is time for you being incognito!
That was the main message at the party that AU-IBT held for second year in a row for its students and for Teko representatives simultaneously.
A reason to be creative
Friday 24th of February gave the opportunity to its guests to get creative. During the day it was given the opportunity to those of the students who did not have mask ready at home to express their own crafty talents and potentials regarding the masquerade concept of the event and to create their own individual mask for the party later on.
Self made mask was a possession of Prathaap Ravichandran, a student from AU-IBT. He spent his afternoon decorating his own mask and hoped through the event theme to spend great time with his friends/classmates.
“ Even though that the university is small, there are not that many people in total, everybody could easily guess who you are, I totally tolerate the event concept and this is the reason I came this evening. Having a mask just make the party much more fun and I really wished to be surrounded by my friends”
Citylife observed huge variety of masks during the evening. Some were hand made others carefully collected after hours of looking at the shops.
There were from paper, plastic, only eyes’ shaped or whole faced embraced, with fathers, spray paint, spray glitters, sequin or any other decorative material that you could think of.
Basically this was the evening when you could have expressed yourself through using your own imagination, color scheme or variety of materials that matches your own personality, inner piece or wild mind.
One of the major reasons for its popularity, masquerade theme sets some kind of freedom in its participants’ mind.
Being in disguise is opportunity to modify one’s own appearances in order to conceal wearer’s identity though the usage of attires.
The concept gathered above 200 people where under the music, the party was still on till early hours of the next day. A positive enthusiasm was expressed by the students from Teko as well, in particular by Ioana Costea and Simona Radasan by saying:
“We were looking forward to the event! To participate in the masquerade is a great opportunity and we didn’t wish to miss it”
Moreover wearing a mask is not a matter of opportunity just to present a false, deceptive appearance of you but being unrecognizable makes people to act and behave a little bit more free than usual.
Dress to impress
As a necessity accessory was the mask. However in order to get even more interesting, the organizers of the event spurred on people to impress not only by wearing masks but by their clothes too. As a reward for the effort to impress as a whole appearance there were chosen among the crowd a queen and a king of the masquerade.
With a smile and joyful mood Citylife was cantagious by the lovely atmosphere and by the friendly people that attended.
When the clock showed 3 am everybody packed his/her possessions and with unique experience and everlasting memory the guests of the event were addressed to their homes, including us in this account. For those of you who because of one reason or another had to miss this spectacular show opportunity to correct your lack will be given in future too. So chin up and be ready for the next time.
