Well, if we do dress up and stuff I'd like some sort of agreement from the DJ for some slow songs for a block of time. Maybe saying "Ok all you couples out there, grab your girl and let's slow things down a bit with some nice slow beats..." or whatever. lol Yeah I'm not a DJ...

Even for like, an hour or something that would be cool. I mean, at prom you barely dance for that long anyways...well most of the time. lol

However, my girlfriend will be out on a trip, so I'll be a stag! WAHHH!

I think Fanfic Guru has a great idea, that we can get a thing from the DJ to get a small block of time, even if for an hour, to just slow dance. Also something to possibly change partners or something....for those of us without a partner to dance with, but still want to go! ^^;

I'll be crossplaying doing Gothic Loli, so this would be great for me to do ^^

Preferably at night so it won't mess up me working for The Queen of Hats @.@

Yeah Ruby's got a good point. Not everyone will read this or be able to afford formal wear. Gothic Lolita better count. This will make sure that the least amount of people get left out...although perhaps we should make people try to get semi-formal like collared shirts and all that ^^; Not actually force people...just encourage....^^;

I can't even afford a tuxedo anyways so I can just wear collared shirt and tie.

xD <__<; So if it's just encouraged instead of enforced, it should be okay. XD As long as people get to slow dance it should be nice <3


<_< but yeah. I dun have anything formal except my prom dress which is probably...*pokes it* either too big or too small for me. >:[ not sure which at the moment. Lol  :?


>_>;;; And other than that, I dun think I have any really formal shirts or anything. :O Oh well. XD Something will be figured out...

Maybe it should just be like, people who know about this, already know they can come formal if they'd like, and for those who happen to drop by (who aren't on teh forums for example), can just drop by in their normal clothes. :3

...Most otaku that I know of, aren't gonna bring collared shirts or ties with them to Fanime to just wear around the convention center. XDD o__O; unless thats how they dress...

BUT ANYWAYS...
 

..I can always steal a few ties from work ;D Although they are HIDEOUS.   :roll:

Yeah I think the whole point should be that it is ENCOURAGED. We should NOT force people, as that would ruin the whole vibe of "We want to include EVERYBODY here". ^^;

Perhaps rather than saying "Hey can you play slow songs for an hour?" it would be better to ask the Dj to throw a couple of slow songs in between the other stuff. At all the school dances I went to there were way more fast songs than slow songs any ways.

Since this isn't a true even yet, I don't think it should matter about dressing up formal. Though, if it does become a real thing next year it should be Cossplay or Formal only. Which means you have to be in a costume, fancy-type skirt or dress, and guys wear a collared shirt.

Just my two cents there.

Well what if the guys want to wear a dress?@.@

Although yeah I don't think many people are talking about an enforced dress code thing, but we SHOULD talk to the DJ ahead of time to get a small block of time to slow dance. Even if it's only like 30min or like several 15min segements ^^;

Also I don't know how to fast dance and it's a lot harder to wing that :cry:  :cry:

I'm surprise that some of you are willing to crossplay for the formal gathering even though it disturbs me.

I've never seen a formal ball gathering with crossplay, It would be interesting to see.

What can I say? I identify more with being female then I do male ^^;; Besides, I bet you wouldn't say that so much if it was a GIRL wanting to crossplay or something @.@

An for the record I'm not doing this because I'm secretly gay or anything. I'm 100% into women ^^;;

Just throwing this out there-

What if I got some time on Sunday for this on Stage One?

I have the place from 10am until 8pm, but I could see if Dance is willing to cut me a little slack and let me go until 9pm.

Biggest problem: masquerade is on Sunday. It starts early, but I have no clue as to when it ends. Most people (myself included) will probably be there until it finishes.

Another problem: I have no songs or DJ.

Mmm.....you mean as long as this shaky plan actually WORKS? ^^; Yeah, because it would REALLY suck to go there and have it totally crash. T_T

Any staff people here who could work something out for us? Even if it's for a short time. We don't even need it listed all formal style ^^;;
