View Full Version : Masquerade Ball for Halloween

My friend MaidenJenni and I are getting a little tired of most cosplay related things being in Boston. Granted, Boston is nice and all, I'd like something closer to home. So she and I were thinking of having a masquerade ball, complete with gowns and masks and such. We'd have to charge for tickets (since essentially we have to pay for the catering and the hall), but they wouldn't be more than $30. It would be based somewhere around Providence, RI.

Trouble is, we aren't sure how many people are interested, so I decided to make this thread. Please respond if you would be interested.

Also, it wouldn't be on Halloween directly (I like to pass out candy on Halloween)

That'd be wonderfull o.o. I'm interested! What kind of gowns? like...ones from anime?

Saki_B
07-28-2004, 07:49 PM
Well, they could be ones from animes, but the theme we were going for were just gowns from days of old, like renaissance and medieval and victorian. But gowns from animes are great too. The only thing we'd be insistent upon (besides that fact that you have to dress in a gown if you're a girl) is that you'd have to wear a mask.

We're hoping we can get enough people interested to actually be able to carry through with the plan

Don't you dare make it in Providence. Make it in Quahog. That way we can invite the griffins. I wanna hear Stewie's latest world domination thread whilst we sip punch and Brian uses his tongue for toilet paper. And it will be good, yes.

So? I can imagine that it is. That's the might of imagination you know. Imagination is beta tested, mother approved, and will be stripped from you in about 20 years by the government. Turning sugar into crack, Godzilla into Barney the Purple Dinosaur, and making you rest assured that your dad's fake hair is made of farts and rainbows.

lol. I'm thinking of asking my cousin to come to teach everyone a few simple ballroom dancing steps, so we aren't just slow dancing the whole time -_- Cause you know, you can't exactly bump and grind while in a delicate Victorian gown and such. We wouldn't be dancing the whole entire time anyways. THis is more like a social function, like the Boston Picnic

I suppose that would work, but we'd need a little Stewie running around screaming, "Damn you all!" for a good, warm, Quahog atmosphere. XD

Anyhow, I'd love to go. I suppose making a dress +shudders at the word+ can't really make me suffer for too long. I mean, really, how long can an eternity be?

Well, we're not entirely sure who's going exactly. Lolichan expressed interest, as did whoever it was that replied to the post I put up in the Anime Boston section... I know from here it will be me, and my friend Maiden Jenni. Our friend Chibi Rinoa might go along with her boyfriend, and I've brought the idea up with a few NE cosplayers that I know. I just need to expose this idea to more NE cosplayers, but I can't find a link to the NE cosplaying site

This sounds like a really wonderful idea, and although it's far away fromw here I live, I might consider attending if it looks to be a fitting gala ^.^

IOW, what sort of venue were you all looking at renting out? Once you decide on a location (I know this is all TBA), it would be really helpful if you posted pictures of it etc.

:) just my two cents!

EDIT: oh man i just checked out the date youre planning on: Nov 6th? That's the same weekend as Nekocon-- eep!

*sigh* I would love to go, but I think it would be rather hard convincing my parents to take me to RI. [I live in New Jersey].

And we must have Stewie or Brian, or both, greet people at the entrance to the ball. XD Lois can be in charge of music, ie play the piano, and Peter can uh....um uh...do nothing.

Well, i don't know.....honestly. see if i'm going to do anything i'm gonna have to make it now. See i've gotten a lucky chance in my life and i'm going to New Zealand for 6 weeks just to go and goof off in a far away country. and i'm coming back the weekend before this shinding. but as for any particular character goes....eh, haven't found one that absolutely wowed me. so i'm thinking of doing my own creation. aka...i have no clue. i'm not all for being the King of the ball. Just having fun. AB04 was just an uber unexpected kick ass ride. not saying i'm not going to take next years loosely..i'm going all out again. gotta keep my title for a little bit. I dont' know....but i'm sure me in my tux and a homemade mask will be my definate answer for now. if all else fails....that's what i'll be in. but dont' worry, i'll promise i'll try my best. (wonders if vash could be changed to a victorian tux...mmm) -sketch

you dont have to make your own costumes, you can just wear a formal gown or suit with a mask. The costumes are just a fun thing to do.
RI is the state under MA and next to Conn. >.< Providence is the state capital.

I'm wearing a Princess Ai outfit which is very gothic Lolita influenced. The ball is not uber formal. You are not required to wear tuxes and 20 yards of taffeta, though you aren't discouraged from doing so either. We'd just like everyone to look nice, no jeans, no ripped clothes, no bodysuits, and gothic Lolita outfits are perfectly lovely in my opinion. :)

We (meaning the other people, i'm just announcing it cause i know) are looking into a larger inexpensive hall. So, to make sure that they should even bother, sign up anyways. seriously. you'll be on a waiting list, but if we get a large enough group passed the 60 they'll have no choice. so SIGN UP ANYWAYS!

DO IT, SIGN UP. EVERYBODY ELSE IS DOING IT!! CONFORM!!

seriously. sign up is still available. so sign up so we know those of you are interested and get in contact when we got more space.

IF YOU ARE WAITING LIST, do not send money. wait till they send you a money order email giving you the address and what not.

IF YOU ARE ON THE 60 PERSON LIST, what are you waiting for? send it already. if they dont' get your money we give your spot to the people patiently waiting. (double check on the PAMB forum for Hopalee, she's running the list. ask her if you have any issues)

September 21st is the date Saki_B needs your money orders in. if you do not get that in by then, they will take you off the list and start filling in the waiting list...i believe. If you are on the main page list of attendies, but did not get an email. go to the PAMB forum and message Hopallee. she's in charge.

Blah. Sketch keeps talkinga bout this and it sounds cool, but I got no idea for a costume. Well I got a couple, but one much work and I don't know if it would work and the other might be too unformal.

Well one random idea was a formal version of Nightwing from the Batman comics. Maybe even a redesign of his crappy 70s outfit as a suit. Though that would require work and materials and I'm not too sure it's worth the idea.

I got another idea today looking around my room. I had been saying I should go as Amon from Witch Hunter Robin for a while, but I could never find his really cool undercoat and my trenchcoat is a bit different. I could try to make the undercoat and fudge it with just my regular trench. Meh. I dunno. At least with Amon I got the hair, maybe a bit long.

Meh, a copuple of other interests and ideas just sounded lame. Like a long haired Wolfwood or Alucard in a suit. Meh, I i could just go as something EGL or gothic. Meh, things have been busy or I've jsut been too tired lately to think too much on this.

Oh yeah, compliments on the web site design for the ball. I love Clover and recently got around to reading the last book. (Now if only they would make vol 5...) Very cool to see it used for the site. Man, I'd love to cosplay as Kazuhiko, but I'd need a wig for shorter front hair and a thicker pony tail. Eh, someday. It's on my list for someday. Plus I'd have to make the arm cannon thing.

Sign up anyways. I'll just count you, and if you can't go, then I'll take you off the list along with the other people who don't pay by Sept 21.

A day or two we reached our 60 person max, but we found out we could do 100 people. I myself am one of the two main coordinators of this ball, but I'm not the one who made the site. That credit goes to Hopallee, so all questions about the site go to her. I've noticed that a lot of people sign up more than once (I get an email each time someone signs up); people have to understand that Hopallee gets and email with your information which she then puts up on the site. It's not instantaneous, so please, only sign up once.

If you get the email requesting the money for the ticket, then you are on the pending list. And as for a money request email problem, there's not much I can do about that. Email is the only way I can get in touch with people, seeing as half of them never check the message boards or the site. But I suggest you IM (Sakurablosom) me immediately when you sign up to get the money order information so you can send your money ASAP and guarentee yourself permanence.

And as for you, MemoriesofYuna, there have been volunteers to carpool people from the train station to the hotel.

well, theres 93 people on the temporary list, since most of those people didnt send money in yet. You're not official until the money comes in, so we only have about 10 people so far on the official list. Sending the money order express is a good option, seeing as we need money desperately, as this is *not* a cheap event to set up, and we dont want to have this whole thing fall through because of money order shortages. I know thats what happened with the fairy photoshoot, and i'm hoping that doesnt happen with this event.

Heys, I signed up. I'll most likely be sending in my money order this week just so ya know. I didn't get an e-mail or anything for it though. Should I have? I know I'm on the list on the site.

Question. I don't know if I'll be able to get everything together for, and finish my Lady Oscar costume by then, if I were to cosplay as Andre as the Black Knight (also from rose of versailles) instead would that be acceptable, or is that not formal enough?
(I'd be doing the anime version which is a little different, but the same idea).
opinions?

well, theres 93 people on the temporary list, since most of those people didnt send money in yet. You're not official until the money comes in, so we only have about 10 people so far on the official list. Sending the money order express is a good option, seeing as we need money desperately, as this is *not* a cheap event to set up, and we dont want to have this whole thing fall through because of money order shortages. I know thats what happened with the fairy photoshoot, and i'm hoping that doesnt happen with this event.

Myself and Kimberly will be sending our money orders in to you ladies this coming week.

Cheers

Juna Kazama: that outfit is fine, its actually really nice, id like to see that one in person. If you just signed up recently, you probably didnt get the last email, but we'll be sending another one out in about a week or so. The billing address is on the main website on the signup area though.

Animechicky and Areset Yuna: thanks guys! ^^

Wow. I just found this thread for the first time today (sept. 17th), as I've been away for about 4 months. This is most interesting. A question for the events organizers: do you accept Paypal? And does this hotel have a block set aside for guests who wish to stay there?

ChibiRinoa
09-17-2004, 07:05 AM
The hotel is open for guests, yes, but no specific block. and you even get a complimentary shuttle for traveling the city etc.

about the paypal issue...we would really rather you send a money order because Saki_B doesnt have a credit card to set the paypal account up with, and the only paypal account we'd be able to use is my mothers and i said she wouldnt have to get involved. If we become really desperate for money we'll get paypal running through my mother, but right now we *really* rather you send a money order.

I accept money orders and personal checks as a method of payment, and if worse comes to worse, I'll accept cash as well, though I tend to not want to, since you can't keep much of a solid record about solid cash.

Just as a reminder, the OFFICIAL DEADLINE is October 20th. We still have spots open, send your money in before that date for a guarenteed spot in the ball. Dont expect to show up to this thing without having paid for it >.> Visit the site (its on pg 2-3 on this thread) for more information. If you really want to come and can only pay by paypal we are willing to accommodate.

just a note: since commuter rails don't look like they run on sat/sun, the Amtrak from boston takes like 45 min and is like $26 round trip, but can save a couple bucks (use promo code H431 :untrust: ) when it comes to trains guess I get all hyper. Who be doing the "shuttle service" and when?
