Mighty can’t post in the event so I’m copy pasting what he wrote. Here you go.
Hello, people of knockturn!
On the 28th of January, Knockturn will be holding a Chinese New Year Ball! Chinese New Year is a celebration of the new year following the lunar calendar. This year is the year of the Rooster! The reason we have animals for every year is actually from old Chinese mythology, where different creatures were racing to the jade king to be on his calendar. The animals to get there(in order of first to last) were Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig.
 
Events!

The first event will be the make your own spell competition. To enter, post the spells name, tier, and effect/action below. The winner will receive 25 galleons and will be decided through votes(the other prize being your spell is in game).
 
The second event will be the skin competition. Make a Chinese New Year themed skin; whether you decide to be one of the animals, the jade king, Chang’e (moon goddess), or just wear a kimono, you can take place in this(just make sure you are wearing Chinese new year themed skin). There will be two categories, Mythic and Traditional. Mythic consists of the creatures or jade king, Traditional consists of traditional Chinese new year clothing. To enter, put your IGN, Rp name, and category into it’s designated hopper. The winner of each category will receive 45 galleons and will be decided through votes.
 
The third event will be the banner competition. Use colors to create of all sorts to create banners to celebrate the new year! Pictures of roosters, fireworks, the moon, whatever! To enter, put your banner in the hopper labeled with your ign. The winner will receive 30 galleons and the winning banner will be given to all participants. The winner will be decided by the event host.
Note that if you either use black in your banner or use black in you skin(other than for hair), it will be disqualified. This is because black is a symbol of death, something that the Chinese try largely to avoid on this holiday as well as using it anywhere on or with anything.
 
The ball will have events at the following times (EST) (PM):
7:00 - The ball will start.
7:45 - The spells will be performed.
7:55 - The skins will be shown.
8:00 - The winning banner will be announced and shared.
8:15 - The winning spell will be announced.
8:25 - The winning skins will be announced.
9:00 - The ball will end.
Unknown timing - Pande’s Gift
 
If you want to sponsor this or want a stand for your shop to sell at, below and after checking that the business is legitimate, you will be allowed a sign shop there.
I hope to see you all there on the 28th! Can’t wait to have a wonderful time!

Laternus

Tier 3

 

Turns the block aimed at into Glowstone, creating a lantern affect. There is not much backfire chance and the backfire is blindness for 5 seconds. The block remains as flowstone for 10 seconds when first cast, increasing by 2 seconds every 100 times cast.

(Lantern affect because Chinese New Year has lanterns)

Spell suggestion: Arborium

 

Tier: 11

 

Effect: It turns the target into a tree. Why? Well, just cause. We have a few human to animal transfig. spells, why not human to "object" (a tree is not really an object but ok) like Prof. Slughorn did to hide from the Deatheaters.

*Spell Suggestion:
Circulus Levitatis
*Tier:
6
*Effect:
It spins the victim and makes them float into the air. The more expirenced the caster is, the higher the victim goes. (Maximum of 25-30 blocks preferably. Wouldn't wanna kill someone, but that's just my opinion on it.)

Spell suggestion: Dragono tranformus

 

Tier: 12

 

Effect: Turns the caster to a dragon for a certain amount of time. The amount of time depends on how many times the caster has casted it. During the time of the caster being a dragon, they can:

1) Breath fire

2) Appear as a dragon

3) Hover in the air as a dragon.

The last and first one only work after LOTS of spamming. So you could focus on different skills for the spell :D

Considering the highest tier is Bella with tier 12, perhaps a lower tier??

 

The spell name is "Carmina Maximus"

Tier 1

It shoots 12 different colored fireworks into the sky in a circular motion witch is ended by a massive multi-colored firework in the middle that creates a loud bang..

Surely 12 fireworks would cause mass lag, again this is only my opinion but I don't see that being made?

 

Laternus

Tier 3

 

Turns the block aimed at into Glowstone, creating a lantern affect. There is not much backfire chance and the backfire is blindness for 5 seconds. The block remains as flowstone for 10 seconds when first cast, increasing by 2 seconds every 100 times cast.

(Lantern affect because Chinese New Year has lanterns)

Basically tier 3 Lumos Maxima, can't see it happening, but who knows the devs are amazing.
