AWA 2007 Ball

Just wondering what to expect. I haven't gone, but I will next year!

Who is coming?

What are you wearing?

Whats the ball like?

What kind of music do they play?

Is it worth the extra money? ^.^

I'm going as Asagi from the band D in his Sleeper PV costume.

It's basically just a suit. >>;

Never been before, though, so I can't help you. ^^;

(By the way, one of the people in your Nana group is in my Japanese class. x3)

Ooooh ^_______________^ I can help here!

I'm coming, I'll be wearing either Ballroom Itachi (Naruto) or if the dress doesn't get finished *again* I'll just wear one of my formal dresses with either Itachi or Train's (Black Cat) accessories.

The ball is like the prom I always wanted (no rap music THANK YOU). A very formal atmosphere, a decent sized wood dance floor (though, still a little small. I grazed Vic Mignogna, Edward Elric's voiceactor, twice XD), AWESOME SNACKS. Lots of little cocktail snacks, chicken strips, bacon covered shrimp, fruit and veggie trays, cracker trays, etc. Also a super cute dessert bar! The mandarin orange tart was delicious :3

The food is already included in the ticket price, so eat all you want, but any drinks other than water and coffee have to be bought. (About $2+ per drink, I just went with water >.<)

There's a professional photo booth with a themed backdrop. You can't buy pictures there, but the shots are put up on his site for purchase afterwards. ^_^ Dave Nelson I believe.

The music was AWESOME! There's a live strings quartet that played lots of stuff. Every once in a while there'd be an interlude of recorded songs. I wasn't paying too much attention most of the time, but I remember the quartet playing highlights from the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time... There was something from Chobits, some Fruits Basket, Bratja from Fullmetal Alchemist (Vic and I sang along XD), and my personal favorite, Waltz for the Moon from Final Fantasy VIII (Remember Squall and Rinoa's ballroom dance?).

Overall they played a good variety of classical and anime/videogame music!

I'd say it's definately worth the money!! It was so much fun!

Hm. My friend went last year and said it was OK at best. She didn't go into too much detail with me about what happened exactly, but she did say that if you don't have a "date" or dance partner to go with you, it'll be a little boring. Personally, I'm still thinking about going so I can determine for myself if it's worth going to in the future.

A lot of guys went stag (and I knew a lot of them :3)

We're all geeks here, so if you're not with a date, you have to be willing to ask a stranger to dance X3
Just look for the wallflowers!

They played it two or three times while I was there (Left an hour early T_T).

At that point, everyone just grabbed the nearest person and ran to the dance floor XD

I'm going as my version of Fancy Temari. ^^ I'm wearing a kimono with the traditional samurai shoesies. I also have two small fans with the design and her wig.

I'm really nervous about asking a guy to dance so I hope it'll be the other way around.

How much do you have to pay? And where is it? Do you know if you can request songs to play?

-wishes for emo guys to be there so she can steal them- ^^;; I'm so excited. xDDDDDDDDD

Last year it was an additional $10 (or was it $12??? Eh?).

As for the location, go down the hallway with the dealer's room all the way to the end (past the mall and everything) and hang a left. That's the only entrance, but there are several exits closer to the Dealer's room area ^_^
I forget the room name T_T

And yes! You can request songs on the AWA message board.
(http://www.awa-con.com/phpbb/index.php)
Or, at least we did the last two years...
There should be a "Ball Music Request" topic under the 'Events, Guests' subforum a few months before the con :3
