Ok I am going to have to clarify on a comment I made earlier, I apologize about the confusion. In regards to the boots, if they are part of a cosplay then they will be allowed in, however, the heel on the boot still cannot come to a point smaller than the size of a nickel and the bottom of the boot cannot be rubber soled. If the boot is not part of a cosplay, it will not be allowed into the ballroom.
My earlier comment was partly due to me not checking if the boot was part of a cosplay or not. The concerns that I have with boots are that they are hard to dance in if you plan to dance for an extended amount of time and they can cause painful accidents if you step on someone toes (yes it hurts regardless if you have boots on also
). If you do decide to wear boots underneath your dress and they are covered up, they still will be checked. Again, if it is part of a cosplay then it will be fine, if it is not, then it will not be allowed in.
I hope that clarifies things up a bit. Thanks for the questions and see you guys at the Ball.
