Welcome all Gaians of 2004~! This thread was made in light of this year's Spirit Week! What is Spirit Week, you may ask? Here's the answer straight from the source~:

I R Spirit Week
Did you ever have Spirit Week in high school, or in college? A week where everyone dressed up in crazy outfits according to a new theme each day? Well that's what the Gaia Spirit Week is like too! We assign a new theme each day, and everyone dresses up their avatars to show their support and appreciation for Gaia, and all the people who work to make it great.
And it's fun.


So get yourselves ready to have fun and represent '04 like no one else can~<3.

[ { The Days } ]

{ July 7th - July 13th, 2013 }

NOTE: All days will begin and end according to Eastern Standard Time (GMT -5)!
Celebrate according to whatever time you wish, but most of us mods are eastern, so this is easiest for us. :]

Gaia Spirit Week 2013

[ { Sunday the 7th } ]
[ { Back in Time Day } ]

We feel that in order to really feel back in time, we might just have to travel past the 1950's for this one. (Sorry, poodles skirts! We still love you!) You can dress up from the Roaring Twenties, Victiorian period, Edwardian, the Stone Age, and anything in between. This is also open to media that is set during these eras, so you are more than welcome to dress as historical figures, fictional or otherwise.

[ { Monday the 8th } ]
[ { This Mission is Top Secret Day } ]

This message will self-destruct in ten seconds. It is now your task to dress as those gatherers of intelligence that we couldn't live without. Spies, double-agents, ninjas, private detectives, and moles. Bust out those unassuming gadgets, suave attire, and hidden weapons and be sure to decode that information...or whatever it is your superiors want. [Boom]

[ { Tuesday the 9th } ]
[ { Gaian Town Day } ]

Basically, dress in the colors of your favorite Gaia Town; Aekea, Barton, Durem, or Isle de Gambino. Don't have a favorite town? That's okay, we're also opening this day up to the many NPCs here on Gaia Online! So you are more than welcome to dress like the shopkeepers, holiday characters that show up during events, or even ones from the games on the site.

[ { Wednesday the 10th } ]
[ { Cross-Dressing Day } ]

We heard your prayers; you almost voted for this day. Twice! And we realized, this needs to be a day. Dress yourself (or your avatar as the case would be) as the opposite gender; you can do this in a simple or basic way, or pull out all the stops and go all glitz and glam. Keep in mind not to do anything that would be considered offensive, though we would think by now that was a given. Or, if you don't feel like dressing as male or female, how about androgynous?

[ { Thursday the 11th } ]
[ { Sins & Virtues Day } ]

Pretty obvious; be a humanization of one of the seven Deadly Sins, or seven Virtues! For reference, the 7 Sins are: Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, and Pride, and the 7 Virtues are: Chastity, Temperance, Charity, Diligence, Patience, Kindness, and Humility. If you want to go the extra mile, gather your friends and get a group of you all in your sinful or virtuous garb.

[ { Friday the 12th } ]
[ { Unknown Day } ]

One of our old favorites - Unknown Day! You pick what the day will be! You'll see we've posted a poll up above. It will close on Thursday to give you time to get ready. The options are as follows:

I. Right in the Feels Day: This day is dedicated to all those emotions we feel, no matter how simple or complex they may be. Make yourself happy as a clam or be as angry as...something angry. We'll also opening this day to various internet memes that we know and love...or maybe wish never surfaced. Ever.

II. Astronomy vs. Astrology Day: Love the stars? Awesome! Love the zodiac? Fabulous! This day is all about the Chinese and Western zodiac. What does this mean? Well, you can represent an animal or creature featured in these, or even the constellation they represent. You can even pick a group of stars not featured in the zodiac, if you so choose.

III.: Elemental Day: Earth! Fire! Wind! Water! Heart! [Go Planet!] This day is all about the elements. Of course, don't forget about the Periodic Table of Elements, since those are important as well!

IV. What Happens In Vegas...: ..stays in Vegas." Today we'd like to have avatars feature those crazy (mis)adventures that you never want to speak of in public. All evidence must be burned, any questions unanswered for fear of questioning either morals or mental health, and tigers returned to Mike Tyson. Don't even question the tattoo on your left butt cheek that you thought was a sweet mermaid, but really resembles Joan Rivers.


V. Video Game Day: In this day and age, it's neck in neck with certain systems winning popularity, but we can't forget to love their origins as well. Those hulking machines in the arcade, ancient retro systems that had cartridges you had to blow into to work, and discs that would scratch after one use. From the 8-bit relics to the HD I'm-going-to-blow-your-mind graphics, the characters that had you keep saving the princess in each castle, dogs that laugh at you when you missed a shot, and ghosts that ran away once you ate the blinking pellet. An ode to the gamer, you might say, so wear your achievements like a badge of pride.

[ { Saturday the 13th } ]
[ { Class Color Day } ]

Everyone's favorite day, back again (like every year), it's Class Color Day! Each year (2003, 2004, etc.) has been assigned a specific color. On this day, your dress your avatar up according to the color of the year you first joined Gaia. For example, if you joined in April of 2006, and the list says 2006's color is green, put green clothes on your avatar. Get it? Got it? Good. The colors this year will be the same as last, for those of you who participated before, with the addition of black for the newbies. Have at it!
Note: Some years we've had a bit of trouble with people getting unreasonably competitive about their classes. So this year, we're asking everyone to include a rainbow of some kind on your class color day outfits, to show our unity, and appreciation for the other classes.

You may be wondering, how do I know what year I joined? Well, just click right here! The siglab will tell you the exact date you joined Gaia. :] What if you had an account before this, but it got hacked or banned or some such? No problem. Just dress up in the year you joined Gaia, not the year your account was created.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Remembrance Week

We decided to do something a little bit different, something special this year. After Gaia Spirit Week, we'll be hosting one extra week to bring back some of our most popular themes from past years! We hope everyone will stick around for a trip down memory lane (or welcome some of you in to days that you might have missed before you joined us), but if not, we hope you enjoyed this year's Gaia Spirit Week! Here are the days we'll be bringing back:
[ { Sunday the 14th } ]
[ { Cosplay Day } ]

Dress up like someone from a various form of media, be it a video game, movie, anime, comic...you see where we're going with this? Are you a closet fan of something you wouldn't admit to offline? Perfect! Show your love for your favorite character (or characters, since you don't have to pick just one cosplay throughout the day) and see if anyone else can guess just who it is you are dressing as.

[ { Monday the 15th } ]
[ { Twin Day } ]

The hallmark of high school Spirit Weeks everywhere, Gaia Spirit Week is bringing backTwin Day. Or more-than-twin day. Dress identically to someone else, or multiple someone elses. This can go as far as the same skin and hairstyle, or can mimic the poor job of matching most high school friends do. Don't have any Gaian friends to match up with? Just ask on the board! We're sure you'll find a willing volunteer.

[ { Tuesday the 16th } ]
[ { Pokémon Day } ]

What kind of pokémon are you? How do you do the things you do~ Mimic your favorite pokémon! We've all got one, so we want you to dress like it! This can be a hard one since your avi isn't really pokémon shaped, but there are enough items on Gaia, we've got faith that you lot can do it successfully! Need some help finding a good Pokémon? Bulbapedia can help; you can even search by color. Or, if you aren't feeling the whole pokémon thing, you can dress as a trainer, or even one of the other people you come across on your journey!

[ { Wednesday the 17th } ]
[ { Accessories Day } ]

The only rule is that you may only wear accessories! Simple, right? Wear anything you want, so long as it came out of the accessory tab in your inventory. Have fun!

[ { Thursday the 18th } ]
[ { I Am Day } ]

The rules are simple: dress up only as an item that has an "I Am" or "You are" pose! Don't know what items have these options, click this for a list of the items.

[ { Friday the 19th } ]
[ { Favorite Past Theme Day } ]

For this day, we're letting you pick for yourself what theme you'd dress for today. This is open to not only days from the past years, but this year's Spirit Week as well. You don't have to pick just one, but you also don't have to prepare a bunch of outfits. Remember, just have fun and experience (or for quite a bit of us, re-live) this blast from the past.

[ { Saturday the 20th } ]
[ { Rainbow Day } ]

This day isn't about class competition, but about unity. Instead of a traditional class color day, we're opening it up for everyone to dress in ALL THE COLORS! That's right, as in more than one color, in fact, all of them. At least, all the ones that have a place here in Spirit Week (And maybe some that haven't). Need help on finding a rainbow item to wear? Use this handy, dandy item list to see what all your options are.
