The project begins! Join the parade!

What I ask of you:
:bulletblue:To create an emote to join in the parade as a general marcher.
:bulletblue:To create an emote to join the parade as members of the marching band.
:bulletblue:To decorate a float, and create emotes to ride it.

Submissions can be animated or unanimated, see the rules below.

General Rules:
:bulletred:Emotes must comply to all the standard dA regulations.
:bulletred:Unanimated emotes will be animated (by myself) to march along with the rest, so don't submit anything that couldn't march along (stationary objects, people who have fallen over etc).
:bulletred:No backgrounds please.
:bulletred:Any submitted emote band members must be able to march along while playing, so no pianists please. However, strange and silly musical instruments which you wouldn't normally find in a marching band are fine.
:bulletred: Try to stick to reasonable sized emotes.

Guidlines for animated submissions:
:bulletpurple: If you intend to submit an animated emote, bear in mind that I will need access to .gif files for each frame of animation.
:bulletpurple:Also, don't create anything that relies on a very high framerate. Currently, the emote uses a 15 cs delay between each frame, or 16 fps.
:bulletpurple:The parade is moving from right to left, so please animate yours to move this way too.
:bulletpurple: Your animation must repeat after either 4, 8, 20 or 40 frames.
:bulletpurple: Note for marchers: The current marching pattern is 2 frames down, then 2 frames hopped up, then two frames down and so on.
:bulletpurple: Note for musicians: The drummer cycles his beat every four frames, the tempo is: beat, beat, long beat, beat, beat, long beat. Try to have yours fit the theme (though it needn't be as fast).
:bulletpurple: Note for float emotes: any emotes riding the floats needn't march, so can be stationary or moving against the parade flow (for short periods).

If you want to submit an entry, send me a link to final emote. If you're entering an animated emote I'll need to be sent each frame as a .gif (via email or otherwise).

Think this is a good idea? Let me know! Show some support for the parade, and help spread the word.
Want to be involved? Again, let me know!
Want to take part, but don't know how to create emoticons? Read my tutorial! [link]
Questions? Clarifications? Ask me 'em!

Spread the word!

Clarification: Based on a (very valid) question I recieved, I would like to point out that although I have two skelleton emotes included in the parade, this isn't a theme that need to be stuck to: You have free reign to create your marching emote's appearance.
