3 PM Costume Contest Sunday

and you can go to the FFBall in costume, but it has to be formal-ish...it can't be like say Yuna's Gunner costume, thats not formal....otherwise i take it you can dress up in your own formal clothes

You CAN go in your costume...but it has to be something classy. Nothing too revealing or obnoxious. Going formal, however, would be so much nicer. Here's the link to the FFBall rules website!

The time for the costume contest isn't up on the Metrocon website yet...in fact, everything has been delayed because lightning struck the server and they lost EVERYTHING. Things should be running normally soon, I hope. Here's the link to Metrocon's website:

Formal dress with ears and a tail would be acceptable. A school girl uniform would not.

Think of it as a prom. What would you wear it to? Its about the same ideal.

Just a note!

Amerisuites--one of the overflow hotels--is almost booked! I just called and reserved my room a few minutes ago, and the guy said there were only 12 (well, now 11) rooms left for Friday. Amerisuites is the closest of the two overflow hotels, so hurry up and book!

Also, if you do have a room at the Amerisuites--it is walking distance from the Crowne Plaza. Would anyone be interested in forming a group to walk together there each morning? Hopefully a group will cause less harrassment while in costume. ^^;

Heh, good idea. I have a room at the Amerisuites as well, and i'm sure at least a few others do as well. x. x Argh, Metrocon is taking too long to arrive.

I KNOW!!! I want it to be HERE (well except for the fact my costumes aren't finished yet...heh!) I can't wait to dance around in my Ed costume!

I was lucky enough to snag a room at the Crowne Plaza, so I don't have any worries!

waah.. i'm gonna show up to the con friday late, but hopefully in time for the FFball. I guess I'll be driving up to Tampa in my Reno costume, w00t! That'll be fun. And I'll probelly have to buy my pass at the door. -.- waaah...

But I'm hoping I'll make it to the FFball in time! Should I dress of my nephew in a chibi Vivi outfit? I wonder where I could get the matrials.. >>

Why can't you go to the ball?? It'll be tons of fun! Yeah, we should meet up somehwere. Though...it actually shouldn't be too hard to spot me. All Friday I'll be Edward from Cowboy Bebop, and then Saturday I'll be a catgirl in the chess match (short brown hair, green dress, brown...thingy.) and my Edward costume and then on Sunday I'll be both again.

i can't goto the ball cause i don't have anything dressy.
maybe i could go if i put on some slacks, a dress shirt, and a bow tie. then i'd just put sasuke's logo on the back of the shirt.
think they'd let me in like that?

Of course! Thats the exact dress code! Go to the link to the FFBall website I put up earlier in this thread...it even says that a tux is too dressy! I think some slacks, a dress shirt, and a bow tie sound lovely!

I'm just going to say this as a warning to those whom have never attended the Final Fantasy Ball.

All character actors (i.e. Sephiroth, Cloud, Turks, etc) will be 100% in character. Keep in mind, this means that many (especially the male characters, for the most part) will not be as kind as you think. Don't attempt to hug Sephiroth, he'd won't like that. Don't try to flirt with Rufus, or the Turks will have to step in (especially Reno >.>.

Also, if you wear Final Fantasy 7 character costumes to the ball, you will be treated as a-person-dressed-as-FF7-costume, and not -as- the character.

Those working at the ball will -be- the characters, so keep that in the back of your mind.

Just a bit of warning, tis all.

Alright! I got my hotel room for Metrocon at the Ameri suites this afternoon! *cheers* I hope the "walking distance" isn't too long...I'd hate to walk and be dead tired..
