A MESSAGE FROM THE HOST
Dear Esteemed Guests:
Thank you for taking a further look into my prom proposal!
This year for my 25th Birthday I shall be throwing a Virtual Party on Mozilla Hubs, Discord, and Zoom. The theme of this party, mildly inspired by the game of the same name, is Monster Prom! This virtual birthday party is Halloween meets prom, meets cocktail hour, meets game night.
A large percentage of the party will take place on Mozilla Hubs, a virtual room website made by the same people who made Firefox. On Mozilla Hubs you can pick your own avatar (they have everything from robots to Audrey II) and customize it if you’re feeling adventurous with your 3D skillz. You can walk around a 3D space I will be designing to fit the theme. The room has spatialized sound, meaning that to talk to someone you need to be near their avatar so they can hear you and you can hear them, like in the non-virtual world ( you will NEED headphones though.) It’s a very cool platform, I highly recommend checking it out.
I’ll have more details and specific information about Mozilla Hubs and party activities below. The Mozilla Hub rooms will be open all night. Check back here on October 3rd for the link the rooms. Feel free to come and go as you please. Socialize in the Mozilla Hub rooms or come do an activity on Discord with a group. There’ll be lots of fun things planned throughout the night so do what you want when you want.
Dress up ( yourself and/or your avatar) as your favorite monster/ghoul / mythical creature and get ready for the PROM of YOUR DREAMS. The days of zoom call birthday parties are behind us. I hope to see you at my little experimental birthday celebration :)
All My Love,
MONSTER PROM 2020
The students of Spooky High cordially invite you to Midnight Madness: 2020 Virtual Monster Prom. Prom night will start promptly at 6PM PST | 9PM EST so dawn your prom apparel and your best ghoulish look and get ready for a night you’ll never forget

VOTE FOR PROM ROYALTY
what do i need to make this work?
To make the party run properly you'll need a few things:
1) A computer or laptop with access to the internet
This will not run well on a phone. It will run slightly better on a tablet but not much. If you're feeling extra, it will run on a VR device.
An absolute must for Mozilla Hubs to work correctly.
3) Access to the Discord Server
Not necessarily an absolute must but it will make things easier.
This will give you access to where all the gaming will happen. I will also be posting cool stuff leading up to my birthday on Discord. People can also campaign for
Prom Royalty on the server.
what is Discord?
Discord is the easiest way to talk over voice, video, and text. Talk, chat, hang out, and stay close with your friends and communities. It's a really great platform for specifically gaming. Think Slack but less formal. It's very user friendly.
What is mozilla hubs?
Mozilla Hubs is a VR chatroom designed for every headset and browser, but it is also an open source project that explores how communication in mixed reality can come to life. Step inside one of our virtual rooms or build one from the ground up. With Hubs, you can create a room with a single click.
I really like it because you can walk around a space and interact with people like you could in real life. There is none of the fatigue that comes with Zoom calls and Google Hangouts. You can walk away from people and conversations and join new ones. You also have the ability to manipulate the space and share videos and images and 3D art very easily.
What dO i nEED TO kNOW aBOUT mOZILLA hUBS FOR THE pARTY?
You personally need to know that there are going to be three Mozilla Hubs room for the party. You can travel between the three rooms and hangout with different people and do different activities. There can only be 24 people in a room at a time. The more people that are in a room, the slower your connection will seem. So try to spread out as much as you can.
How do I create my own 3d avatar for the party?
You should take a look at this link. Know that the avatar needs to be a GLB file. It's a little difficult but all the power to you if you wanna do it.
How do i run for prom royalty?
Join the Discord server and announce your candidacy. 2 people will be crowned Prom Royalty. Run solo or with a partner. On prom night, a ballot will be sent out that everyone can fill out once. People who campaign before the party will be listed on the ballot. People can also write in whatever they want on the ballot but campaign away!
This is a LOT!?!?!?
Yeah, you're not wrong. I'm being a bit extra but 25 and THRIVE right?!?! If you're confused hit me up. It will be a fun time. I promise ~
It's going to be a Night we'll Never forget...
Can't wait to see you at Midnight Madness: 2020 Virtual Monster Prom on
