I WANT THIS TOO >:O I say if they dont, we find an empty room and put on some slow songs..or ball room songs..or..something.


>> I know we probably cant do that, I'm just kidding.


Or AM I?!

It'd probably be fun. >.> But how formal would it be? O.o? Would it require cosplay? Or just fancy dresses and suits or something?

I'm sure we'll have a lot of Tuxedo Masks though... >.>

Post by: Akito Starwind on April 18, 2006, 09:38:34 PM
that sounds like fun.. Tuxedo Masks would be th common thing but for a twist you can have a hollow mask, from bleach on? or would that ruin it?

we do need another dance room where they play slow dance songs since the other dance is just all fast dancing and dress up formal. I HAVEN'T SLOW DANCE NOR BEEN TO FORMAL DANCE SINCE PROM!

Post by: Sunara Ishi on April 19, 2006, 01:18:21 AM
How about mysterious slow songs? It'll fit the masquerade setting. :3
Maybe even ones that border on romanticism.

It'll be more fun to have the dances some formal dance rather than traditional slow songs for couples. One of the ones where you switch partners also. So even if you come with someone, you'd end up meeting new people.

That sounds good, I hope this idea gets off the ground soon, it'd be a nice alternative for those who want a different dance than what fanime already has.

I hope we can hear some word on this soon, because I may not have time to make a new outfit, if it's too late ;_;

From what SakuraKanegawa posted it looks doubtful we'll see a ball this year. :( But still maybe we can dress up on Saturday and have a mini-gathering.  And then we wander around the con together holding signs that read something like, "We want Fanime Ball for 2007" lol.  Then we invade the dance room and take it over.  :twisted:

I'm just going to wear my regular clothes since I don't have a suit and plus I don't have the money to buy a suit unless I'll go in with my cosplay gear.

it doesn't sound like this event will happen ~_~

that's sad because I've been wanting to have a more formal dance, that had a theme at fanime for years now! And another year will go by and no ball for us V_V
Title: Ball
Post by: Charming_Dorian on May 05, 2006, 04:29:22 PM
but seriously there is nothing to stop you from dressing up like it's a ball. Like what has been said earlier we can have our own unofficial thing. If it isnt on Friday night Im sure some people would have reasonable time to pub it...
Title: Ball
Post by: OniCourseMusha on May 07, 2006, 02:15:36 AM
Who needs a Official Ball! We can just meet up all dressed up!

Wanna meet up when and where? Cuz I'm down on Saturday (Friday I'm gonna be busy wit H-Marathon and Dance)! Can someone make us some masks? Wanna eat somewhere as well or bring food?

NEVER BEEN TO PROM?
MISSED OR GONNA HAVE TO SKIP PROM BECAUSE OF FANIME?
FORGET PROM!! FANIME IS THE PLACE TO BE AND THAT'S WHY WE GONNA DRESS UP AND GATHER!!
If we do plan it next year, we can treat this as it can replace prom.

What about just a cosplay slow dance type dance? that'd be nice too.
Title: Ball
Post by: Green_Tea on May 07, 2006, 06:54:33 PM
I should think it would be ok for guys and girls to cossplay. Specially since suits are so expensive for guys to buy or rent.

Any how. Dressing up for the day or just showing up for the dance in formal attire would be fun. Anyone have a time yet? That way we could all get together for pictures.

We should really push for this next year. It could be a really big hit.

Post by: FanFicGuru on May 08, 2006, 02:56:37 PM
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!
Title: Ball
Post by: Ayanami Rei First Child on May 08, 2006, 03:16:06 PM
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....^^;

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:
Title: Ball
Post by: Ayanami Rei First Child on May 09, 2006, 03:08:59 PM
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". ^^;
Title: Ball
Post by: Green_Tea on May 09, 2006, 04:04:20 PM
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.

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:

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.

How about this?

We start it at 6:30 PM (that way people can grab some food around 5:30 or something with their dates) and go til 8:30 PM?

That way, plenty of time for dancing, and it won't collide with the 9 PM programming?

I think that would be a good idea. Even I (who will be thoroughly single) may go just to dance with ya'll.

I guess count me out, I really wanted to go too. Sunday is so busy, and I don't want to risk dancing in my costume for the masquerade either =/

If this happens next year, can we make it on saturday or even friday? I mean ever since I heard that other cons had alternative dances besides the usual 'rave dance' I've wanted fanime to have one too, like others have stated.

Of course when fanime finally has it I won't be able to go. *sighs*

I think Tony already said that he's got everything he needs at the top of this page, didn't he? He runs musicfest and says he has the Dance room until 8 or 9 PM...

I think the only thing he doesn't have is a DJ. Maybe Jinnai could do it?

Post by: Tony on May 15, 2006, 02:24:22 PM
First and foremost, I need a "DJ". At this point, that probably means "Load burned CD, push play." I already asked Jinnai if he would come down, but he needs transportation and a room - which I don't have...  :(

Second, we need to establish a time. Let's Vote!

Saturday, 7pm ish to 8pm ish. (Conflicts with MusicFest.)
Sunday, 6pm ish to 8pm ish. (Conflicts with Masquerade.)

Third, I need to make sure my staff can handle this extra event (especially if it's on Saturday). I'll ask them; you guys figure out what sounds best!

Only if all three items work out will we have a ball... it would be in the Dance room, SJCC room B. (Same place as the dance two years ago.)

His aim sn is VivaJinnai. Also, Are you willing to pay for his flight? If you guys find a way to pool your $ together, then it can be done. Talk to him on AIM, since he usually comes online at night. I would like to help, but I'm already financially stressed out as well.

First and foremost, I need a "DJ". At this point, that probably means "Load burned CD, push play." I already asked Jinnai if he would come down, but he needs transportation and a room - which I don't have...  :(

Second, we need to establish a time. Let's Vote!

Saturday, 7pm ish to 8pm ish. (Conflicts with MusicFest.)
Sunday, 6pm ish to 8pm ish. (Conflicts with Masquerade.)

Third, I need to make sure my staff can handle this extra event (especially if it's on Saturday). I'll ask them; you guys figure out what sounds best!

Only if all three items work out will we have a ball... it would be in the Dance room, SJCC room B. (Same place as the dance two years ago.)


yes please let's vote! I want to have some chance of going to this, i personally don't care for musicfest so I have no issue =P

I just hope there'll be staff, to help out, because saturday and sunday are so busy.

Well, here's my 'vote' on it:

I say we do it Saturday, depending on how 'ish' the 'ish' is, maybe 6:30 to 8:30 or something like that. Masquerade will most likely be less crowded than Masquerade. (Not that it won't be popular, just the Cosplay competition always has a humongous turnout).

As for a DJ, if it's simply a matter of swapping between dance tracks and slow music tracks, if someone has good mixes, I'll be more than willing to pop them in and out and press play. As long as relatively little skill is involved.

Heck, we have enough time that we can arrange which songs we'd want on the track list even. How about it? Get some ideas for dance tracks and slow song tracks. Sounds good to me.

The extra staff thing I'm guessing is in Tony's hands, however, if they are willing to do it based on certain times, it's fine if we have to make a few adjustments to make sure that we can hold the ball.

So, in short:

1) Saturday evening. 6:30-8:30 is ideal. Would like to get at least an hour. Maybe 6:45-7:45?

2) I can plug in tracks if we can get the CDs made and people want to vote on which songs we listen to.

3) Hopefully Tony will be able to get his Staff to help us out on this. If it's a matter of time that they don't want to be working, we can limit it down to 6:45-7:45...for simplicity's sake.

How does that sound to everyone?

EDIT: Where does Jinnai live and how much would it cost for his ticket?

Looking at the prices from Southwest, it's only about 220 bucks for the ticket.

I am willing to help pay for this so that Jinnai can come and DJ for our ball.

If you wish to help, PM me and we'll arrange for you to meet up with me and give me some cash. If there are 4 others, we can split it 50 each way.

We'll see how this goes.

yeah sat. sounds good.
as for a DJ couldn't we just get 2 burned CD's of dance tracks...? that would last about 3 hours. i could get those easy, just takes some CD borrowing and stuff like that :D. just post what songs you want, i'd space it out that one of every 3 songs is slow.

if not, i can put in 20 for that DJ ... or maybe 30, depends, but the 2 or 3 CD's sounds much cheaper if you ask me o.~

I'm so happy my idea is working <3 <3 <3 ^^

I can DJ (And by DJ I mean put the CD in and press play, and if I have a track list for the CDs I can play 'requests' by putting the CD in and skipping to the track they want, and then press play. lol). Anyone else want to make the dance CDs? Two of them at about 80 minutes should be fine. Maybe 3.

We should probably have one with slow tracks like "A moment Like This" etc..etc...

And then one dance/house one

and maybe one R&B CD...

I'm sorry, I was under the impression that we were floating more towards a Prom-esque type dance. You know, a better mixture of slow songs with the faster tracks.

So you just want all slow songs then? If you want to make CDs of the songs you would like to hear Gmontem or what the tracks would sound like, let me know or you can volunteer to take care of the music.

One of the "Orchestral Game Concert" CDs has a waltz arrangement of one of the Dragon Quest games.  I'll check later tonight at home for the title.  

There's also "Waltz de Chocobo" from the FFVI Piano Collections.  Too bad there isn't a "Tango de Chocobo", or is there? XD

And of course there's "Dance of the Balamb-fish" from FF8.  I just hope the male dancers don't try to act drunk on the first half of that piece. ;)

FanFicGuru, I didn't suggest that all songs be slow.  My comment was about the genre of music you suggested -- dance, house, R&B.

Hey guys!

I find that dates are overrated for these things... because if you have a date, you're bound to them the whole night and cant dance with other people.

Or maybe i'm just in denial because I couldnt get a date for prom XP

Man, this would be an awesome opportunity to show off my new ballroom dance skillz. Or something.

Also, if it got to be big, I can see it being a really great place to meet people! You can actually see them, you get to dance with them, everyone is dressed up all fancy... sounds positively awesome!

Also, I can't be the only one who's ever wanted to waltz to Margaret from Madlax. God, just thinking about it makes me jelly inside.

As far as I know we set up a poll to pick a date.

The location is Dance room, SJCC room B from what i heard from tony on hear.

You can buy masks at almost any crafts store- joann's, richard's, michael's.

I got my mask for 79 cents at Michaels, spray painted it, and used a hot glue gun to put sparkles on it. Woot..


On a more important note.. Has anyone posted this on the gathering info in the cosplay part of the board? It might attract more people and make it a little less confusing as to when it actually is. I've been following the thread and I'm still kind of confused as well.

Nonono, this has not been confirmed. I still haven't heard from anyone giving me solid details about getting me a DJ or just music, and so the room was booked. So far,

this is not happening.

BUT.

I have another open time slot. Thursday night, pre- and early-reg only. Our other plans fell through, so this is probably the best chance to do something, and it can actually be at night. It will be totally last minute and totally fan-run, but who wants to step up and actually do this?

Sunday is now booked solid. Saturday, I still have 7-8pm; Thursday is open all night. But I still need someone to DJ.

It's already 3 days after the Saturday deadline. FanFicGuru tentatively volunteered, but I haven't been contacted directly by anyone and the music hasn't even been decided on yet... can you see why this isn't official?

saturday is good, looks like no one can make it thursday. if you need music, it's only an hour long and someone can just bring a CD mix >.>, i will if it's necessary, so like i said before, request songs, and request them NOW. there's only one day left. (i wouldn't mind DJing myself, if that's what you need.) as far as Japanese songs go, if you want Anime track you're going to have to upload it on Yousendit.com and give me the link cause i'm limited to Jrock in that area.

Did you get my yousendit link?  I sent some mp3s at the last minute (Thursday) even though it was probably too late.  But yeah too bad about the  Ball. :(  I dressed up on Saturday night though so if you saw a guy with rabbit ears wearing black dress pants, a black tie, a blue dress shirt, and a jacket, and carrying a camera bag that was probably me.  Ryu told me OniCourseMusha and his lady dressed up, too, but I didn't get to see those two for a pic.

Also if we do....we should make a hookup page so people can get a dance partner ahead of time, as to encourage people to actually go in. I know a lot of people get discouraged if they don't have someone to dance with, and some of us are too shy to ask random strangers.
