that i think will be just fine.  it's hard to tell the length on the skirt (if there is one) from the photos.  should be ok though.

Not really a question, but I thought I'd throw it out here.

Long skirting on gowns.
I thought I'd point it out that if the ladies have long gowns and if it drags a little on the floor, try to pick it up with a lose stitch somewhere unnoticeable. Or if the material allows, securely bustle it. Bustling mostly goes for trains on gowns though.

I know this from various formal occasions I had gone to. It really sucks to have someone step on your dress, or get it cuaght. (Although this may be due to improper length/miscalculation) I am not sure about others, but I find it important to me.

That's fine, my staff is only enforcing a formal look.

Prom dresses (As long as they aren't completely out there) should be fine.

I only got one question.


Can we crossplay? In example, girls in tux and men in gowns.

To emphasize, if you CROSSPLAY, you still have to be FORMAL w/ regards to not over exposing yourself (i.e. guys in gowns are fully covered in applicable areas).

I have a question about hoop skirts.
I would like to wear my Victorian gown to the ball, but the circumference of the skirt is quite wide. Are there too many people at this event for hoops to be allowed?

Also, is the dancing actual waltzing and proper "dancing" or is it all that grinding-shag-me-on-the-dancefloor type of business? Will there be bouncers there to ensure any grinding parties don't get out of control?

the ball is ballroom dance in both music and dance style.  you will be waltzing, tangoing, foxtrotting, etc.  as far as the gown goes, there's nothing wrong with a hoop skirt.  we do try to keep the room at a reasonable capacity for people to dance in.  we have rovers both inside and outside the event to ensure a) proper attire, b) room capacity, and c) handle any problems that may come up for the attendees inside the event.

i want to know if this would be exepted: http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb159/LakuriSyaoran/songstress1.jpg
I adjusted the picture in photo shop (thats y it looks funny) because my costume isn't acctually done yet. and i don't know about the shoes quiet yet
and also, the outfit isn't gonna be as overly frilly as in the picture XD the white that makes up the actual middle of the top is frilly, but the bottom is probably just going to no poof out XD

this would be a little on the informal side imo but it might work.  i'd have to see the completed outfit before being able to give a definitive answer so i'd recommend having a backup plan, just in case.

in general, the costumes from ffx aren't really formal (with the possible exception of lulu's costume - if tastefully done).  because of how they are styled, they're meant to be more casual wear - the type of thing you could wear when hanging out with friends instead of attending a formal function.  however, our dress code is fairly lenient and it does seem to meet the minimum requirements.

sssooo..... does this mean i could get in or not ^^; cause i don't really want to go but it my friends have out numbered me and i don't wanna be alone :( and I don't want to have to lug my heavy chior dress around all that day cause that is about the only fancy thing i do have >.<
(and also I am only picking FFX stuff because my other cosplays ae haruhi and Sora and i don't think those work XD)

the basic minimum dress code for women is a skirt and blouse (basic business attire) which the costume bassically has.  if you have any way of dressing it up a little, i'd recommend it but it works more or less as is. 

if you don't really want to go, tell your friends.  if they're really your friends, they'll understand.  there are always other things going on during the con so even if you don't come to the ball, there are plenty of other things you can do while they're at the ball.  there are the anime rooms, karaoke, stage zero, panels, etc.  and, if all else fails, just remember that you're at a party with 15,000 of your closest friends.  everyone at the convention has at least one thing in common - they all like anime.  i guarantee you can find someone to chat with and who knows, maybe you'll make a new friend.

How about the uniforms from Vampire Knight? They're Black & White with a tie and dress shoes. Somewhat formal. Here's a pic for reference: http://fc16.deviantart.com/fs31/f/2008/215/8/2/Vampire_Knight___Zero_x_Kaname_by_j_b0x.png (I will be going as one of the chars, and my friend as the other.)

Alternatively, Suzaku Kururugi in his Knight of Rounds costume: http://that.animeblogger.net/2008/05/10/suzaku-hero-of-the-soldaten-long-post-about-why-suzaku-is-not-evil/ (top photo)
