I left my comments. ^__^

I just hope they won't make it a FF ball again. Some people are fed up of seeing FF everywhere! (Maybe Yuber can crash the party and evangelize about Suikoden. =P)

It wont be a "Final Fantasy Ball" but a cosplay ball...a mixture. The idea was that of the Final Fantasy VIII ball which was in a ballroom setting. Comment replied to on the AX board to help clarify things ^^

That sounds like a really great idea. I'm all for it. (And yes, I voiced my support on the AX boards. ^_^)

IF you do, I will bring out Samus, and we can team up. ^_^

I love that idea. Gives me a chance to use my Seed costume.

That would be really neat. I just dunno who I'd go with or if I'd even go.. but I love the idea. *^^*;

> Ack! Too bad I have nothing formal to put on...

Well last I checked on the boards they did say they would be lenient... i.e. if you have something classy (costumes included) it should work. ^__^

Which is good since I won't have space in my suitcase for anything other than costumes, and I'm not bringing uber-formal ones this year... but I think Yuber should cut it, as he is wearing a nice suit...

bleh. i'm really hoping its not going to be 100% slow songs like they are pushing for... otherwise i dont think i will be going... how boring.

Freya

It certainly sounds like a fun event...hopefully I can get Princess Garnet done for that seeing as it'll also be my prom dress. ^_^

Tenshi
05-06-2003, 02:34 PM
All slow songs? Blah! I thought they were going to get some big-band and swing music in there.

Aha... do you think my upcoming Zidane costume would do? I can't find anything more classy than this...

Mink

Yeah it sounds like there is going to be some big band and other classy stuff....just not techno or rock.....I am really happy about it!

Maryssa
05-07-2003, 12:03 AM
Well, one could argue that swing or big-band is just as INformal as techno... you move around just as much... i just think its lame that some people over there are arguing that ballroom attire limits movement... wtf do they plan on wearing? havent they ever danced at a wedding in a fancy dress before?

Rosiel

> you move around just as much...

We shouldn't be limited to slows though, it's so boring. ><
They should at least play waltzes or something. Cha-cha? Rumba? Salsa? That's all ballroom dancing...

(That's all boring too.)

> wtf do they plan on wearing?

Petticoats and hoopskirts and the like I guess. ^__^ I can dance very well in any of my fancy dresses... so I really don't get it.

> havent they ever danced at a wedding in a fancy dress before?

*laughs* I guess these people never went to a prom (or theirs was boring), we danced the swing and rock'n'roll in our fancy dresses.

I'm going to have to bug my friends to teach me how to dance now. :D

I've always wanted to learn, but never got a chance or the excuse to get off my lazy behind to do it. :)

What are some dances that would be good for a beginner and would fit in a formal dance?

<imagining the scene in "Shall We Dance">

I posted there... but I think this is really neat ^^ And as I said over there, it gives me an excuse to make princess jupiter!! ^-^

I'm totally looking forward to it!

Master Zero

Works for me. I think I have a suit ^^

Aw. These types of things are way more fun when you have a date. Too bad my boyfriend won't be going to AX with me =/

Oh we should definitely get them to play latin ballroom style music! The waltz is so booooring. *yawn* :)

Come on ziggy, let's go take salsa lessons. We'll squeeze it in in that copious free time we have in between making costumes... NOT. :)

I think I'd wear a something with pants, I can't dance in fancy dresses.

Go to the AX board and say this! Everyone else is clamouring for all slows! Which, well, would be good for my feet (someone is going to kill me for this comment), but I agree would be intensely boring.

I posted my opinion on the whole entire thing.

I plan on making a Kurama costume...

Do you think Kurama in his white outfit (the one he wears during the Dark Tournament) would be alright for this?

TsukiNoBara
05-13-2003, 01:25 AM
wait...I don't get this. Do you just wear something formal, do you cosplay a formal costume, or can you do both?

Master Zero
05-13-2003, 01:43 AM
Aint nothing wrong with a waltz or two (preferably just one) But is it all kind of music or is it like other anime dances and only play anime and video game tracks???

TsukiNoBara
05-13-2003, 01:57 AM
never mind my question, I found out the info that I wanted to know.

FlameSniperRei
05-14-2003, 04:18 PM
Who's gunna DJ? :)

But yeah I doubt it'll be 100% slow songs but it's prob everything BUT like techno rave stuff which should be at the other AX dance.

^o^ I don't mind a lot of slow dances though.... ^.~

Mink
05-15-2003, 03:16 PM
Yeah I think it will be a nice change of pace

Kusanagi~ I think that would be a great costume...just keep away from me...I love Kurama....*molest* Gah Im such a fangirl...teeeheee!

My cosplay group and I are either going to go as all movie Utena (but that means Im in pants....I kinda wanna wear a dress...:D) Or I will convince my boyfriend to do Squall and I Rinoa just because he looks EXACTLY like him. *drool* Poor guy....

My friend and I are prolly going, but we dunno what to cosplay as lol. Leon isn't formal enough is it?

SohjiroX

I say it is a great way for people to go and cosplay a outfit that they seen in dances in animes and more, it sounds great!

RyuHayabusaDOA2
05-19-2003, 05:50 PM
If I have Roger's costume done, his normal outfit, I might show up in that ^_^

Jinx
05-22-2003, 02:49 AM
Kusanagi: I think that suit looks great!

Oh man... that adds another costume to the list!! I can't think of any formal costumes I wanna do.... ;_;

I think I'll be in that ball eventually. Tenshi will even help me finding something to wear, even if it's not that "conventional" **winks at Tenshi**
