View Full Version : Cosplay Gown/Formal Dress

02-28-2006, 08:36 AM
I'm going to a con that's planning a cosplay ball... But I've got no idea what to wear. I want something slightly sexy, but formal enough to pull it off (which rules out most of the kimono and EGL dresses I was looking at ^^;).

So far I've only had a few ideas and I'm not entirely sure about any of them. Please could someone else?

PS. I'm female, so female costumes would be nice suggestions ^^

Oooh, let's see...well, there's Faye Valentine's opera outfit (http://www.fayevalentine.net/info/opera.jpg), Rinoa's ballroom dress (http://www.shockwavepulsar.com/cosplay/rinoa.jpg), Subaru (http://www.aptemple.net/at/subaru%5B1%5D.jpg) from .hack//SIGN would be pretty...those are the only ones leaping to my mind right now...

In Sailor Moon, every one of the senshi has a princess dress. They're all gorgeous. Or, you could do like me and pull out the big guns as Neo-Queen Serenity. THough, I doubt much dancing could happen in this tight of a dress. Certainly couldn't sit down!

I second the Rinoa ballgown idea... Her dress is simple yet beautiful, and is elegant enough for a formal event, I should think.
