How about a dress (of the right length) with leggings?

As long as the dress is the appropriate length you can wear leggins under it.

If the leggings are opaque, and the skirt was a few inches above the knee (all part of a White Rabbit cosplay), would that be okay?

I'm hoping to do a Splicer inspired outfit and I have some questions to see what would be allowed. I intend on wearing a mask with a small amount of fake blood on it, is that acceptable? I also wanted to wear ripped stockings, not too heavily done but still clearly visible. My dress will be normal and of an acceptable length, so it's just the minor details I'm concerned with.

Sorry, this may be a dumb question, but is the dress code strictly black and white if we're not cosplaying?
This will be my first time at Fanime and I don't want to stick out like a sore thumb >.<
Thank you in advance!

Nope, wear whatever colors you like!  Just follow the dress code posted above about what to wear and you should be fine.

the skirt itself has to be the appropriate length, which is to the top of the knee itself. leggings opaque is fine, but the skirt itself needs to be the proper length

i personally can't answer the question about the mask; but the ripped stockings should be okay. again we're more concerned with the dress/skirt itself than the accessories that come with it. i will let a more senior member of the ball staff answer about the mask.

there's no rule against cardigans/sweaters. the only thing that we are really looking for is the length of the dress. no matter how long/short your cardigan is, your dress itself must be the appropriate length.

a note about cardigans/jackets/sweaters. there is no coat check, so if you put your jacket down somewhere, its your responsibility to keep track of it.

I just purchased a prom type dress it's all the way down to my feet so I don't worry about length but it doesn't have straps.
It's a strapless so should I just wear a cute little over jacket or a cardigan? Or should I attach straps?
I didn't read anything in here that stayed we couldn't wear an evening gown without straps.
But I want to make sure I have a cute cover top if I do need one

strapless dresses are fine. i've personally worn strapless dresses before. as long as the dress stays UP, then you're fine.

i believe hats are okay for the most part. it must be part of the costume and if you put it down, it's your responsibility to keep track of it.

Awesome thanks!! It actually has a corseted piece in the back where I can tighten the top so I will make sure it doesn't come down at all

Would a three-quarter sleeve white button-up be okay? It goes a bit past my elbows.

@Olivine - wearing a mask is fine, though if you plan to dance and it obstructs your vision we recommend that you don't wear it so as to reduce the likelihood of running into people.  It will be a fairly crowded floor.

@simbasuga - If the sleeve length is similar to the picture here then you should be okay.

Since there isn't an official thread for the 2016 Ball, I'm posting my question here.

I'm planning on wearing a traditional saree to the Ball (Blue Diamond cosplay), but traditional sarees typically come with halter tops due to shirt fabric twisting under the pull of the skirt. I intend to solve this problem by simply wearing a leotard underneath to hide my skin, but would it be alright if the leotard was skin colored so as not to ruin the look of the saree?

Do the jackets have to be buttoned up? Do the shirts have to be completely buttoned up? I'm talking about leaving the collar left unbuttoned.
