Do people usually dance at this? I'd love to, but I don't really have any sort of training. I'll totally have fun faking it though lol. Or if someone wants to teach me basic steps, I'm a real quick learner. I'll try not to step on anyone's toes hah hah. I could also just watch any couple that looks good XD And perhaps since this is more of a refine event than an all out thing, I'll actually have more courage to ask someone to dance.

I'm going to try to get in with a secret cosplay. If it doesn't pass and if all goes according to plan, I'm also going to have Rose Tyler's Unquiet Dead (Doctor Who) dress done. If that falls through, Idiot's Lantern it is. I'll have a Doctor as well.

I'd kinda love to join in n n;;
but, It would really depend on what time it starts and when it ends~ and all, most of my costumes I think are formal.

Hello,

I taught the lessons at the ball last year (2012) and my girlfriend and I hope to teach again this year if Kelly will have us back.

I'd just like to allay several concerns. First, no dance experience is needed. I specialize in beginners and have a sub-specialty teaching beginners at conventions. I've taught at other geek-culture conventions, including GenCon, larps, and steampunk groups. Whatever your concerns, we'll have you feeling comfortable with a least a few basic steps.

Second, you don't need a partner to attend the dance. If you're really concerned, come to the lessons; lots of people come to the lessons without partners and meet dance partners there. We do our best to match people up.

Third, if anyone has any requests or concerns, or feedback from last year, please let me know.

Sincerely,
Alex

I went back in 11(Might have been 10) But I did not stay long. It was more like a Prom than a Ball. There's a con in Georgia called AWA. They had an amazing ball. There was Food, and Orchestra playing all kinds of music from different games and series. Best of all it was real formal dancing. Best experiences I've ever had at a con. If Katsucon will be doing something like that I will go and gladly pay extra for tickets for myself and my date.
The day before there was a class held to teach people to dance. I missed it but I had friends teaching me how to dance there. Good time for all.

This looks interesting, I'll probably show up as Alucard from Hellsing. That should be formal enough.

I don't think so, but a good change would be a red suit, keep the wig and mabe the hat(Or change it to a similer) and the sunglasses. Just an Idea.

My plan had been just to ditch Alucard's hat and duster coat and switch the boots to something more suitable. Does his coat from the series not count as formal wear?

I guess I should look into what exactly counts as formal wear either way....

I checked the Katsu website, they don't seem to have their guidelines for the formal dance up yet. But I've noticed that their guidelines tend to not change over the years, so I'll have a look at the program book from the previous year.

My friends went last year and were a bit awkward, since the idea was sprung on them pretty much the night before. They had split opinions on it, but I've convinced at least one to go back for 2013 just so we can cosplay Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable from their prom scene.

Does anyone know someone who would like to cosplay as male Anarchy Stocking and come to the ball with my male Panty and regular Stocking and Panty? We're hoping to complete the genderbend and ball gown group for the ball, but don't have a Male Stocking yet O:
