Why we have carneval?

Each year, since very old times, there's huge Carneval in Azol'Amath. Basicly it's celebration of pagan god Ser'peruu (Naga goddes of Waves) that as nagas believe make things beautiful, and she's mastress of colors. Nagas celebrate by dancing and wearing colorfull costumes.



Only discipline:


:red fish:   Fish lord/lady halter Fish


This year we go under the waves with our horses. Nagians can allow rider to enter waterworld without getting drown or harm by pressure. The deepest place we will be diving in is about 100m, so every nagian (including crossbreeds) should be okay with that.

Costumes: UNDERSEA AND FISH INSPIRED ONLY! No bird feathers, no stuff found on dry land. Go search fabulous water world (no matter if freshwater or saltwater) to get inspiration. You can use veils to simulate for example betta fins. Hard plates of armor to simulate crab's exoskelet etc. There's way too much shapes and colors in water fauna/flora. Your rider is obligated to be wearing costume fitting to the unicorn's costume.

Surroundings: Take a look on greek architecture, it will be similar. Only under water. Rider will be probably swimming a lot. There might be some kelp forests that naga keep, water coral gardens, undertwater statues or simply wild underwater scapes.
Halter area has no borders, it's not even flat/sand area. Since nagians can "stand" freely aynwhere it water mass, ground is untouched seabed. I won't give you exact photos or references, because it will be best for you if you can fit background to look pleasing with your costume and mount.

Hey hi hello sorry I'm new and dumb XD. So about prizes for the category winners, I have just a couple questions. For the nagian and item, are they just like customs that we just ask for?  (And maybe who/how to we contact peeps about that?) Also, I'm afraid I don't know what a water elemental is, so could I get a little clarification on that?

(I'm really sorry, I'm just still really new and not confident when it comes to interacting with people and doing events and things in the ARPG world, this was my first contest ever and I've never even asked for a custom anything I'm just getting into all this stuff and I'm kinda overwhelmed and yeah sorry to be annoying and waste anybody's time lol)
