Greetings, readers, fashionistas, and cosmetic bloggers! I've come here today to tell you of the upcoming server event Rippling Manes and Tailfeathers, hosted by Rangers of the West, in honor of the upcoming expansion release. Ely of Pony Lovers Anonymous and myself have been given the honor of being the judges for the fabulous fashion contest. Join us on the Gladden server if you can for an afternoon of fun!

"So, are you ready to blow off some steam and strut your stuff?
Sunday, October 14, at 3 p.m. server time (EST), the Rangers of the West will lead a Rohan Charge through Breeland to the Shire's Methel Stage.

We'll meet up at Bree's west gate. Bring your showiest pony, and wear your flashiest fashions. (No stealing the frocks off the mannequins of Middle Earth, btw, that would be cheating. )

In addition, we will be having an audience judged category - Crowd Pleaser. So be sure to practice your moves, and bring your posse along.Prizes for the judged categories are as follows (Courtesy of Nathrien, we have enriched the prize packages.
