Wooooo! The formal ball is back! Now lets go in style! What will you be wearing to the ball? What cosplay? What dress? A suit? Pants? What character are you making a formal outfit for that normally wouldn't dress up? Post all about it here!

I've actually been pondering this, what am I going to wear. I haven't worn a formal dress in awhile(excluding funerals). I might go dress shopping with some people.. xD

Lol Dave as long as I can drag you around in it :D So sad that was off camera!

I'm so excited to see everyone in their formal outfits. The mix of dresses and suits along with cosplays is going to be interesting. An Anime Fans dream "prom" :D

I wanted to work on one outfit for the Ball, but not sure of what to do. I have some choices narrowed down.

1) Rakshata's Formal Dress (from wedding during the epilogue of Code Geass) Very difficult since there's only ONE picture and it's extremely hard to get all the details right.
2) Sailor Pluto Formal - Found in some fan art, need to commission someone
3) Black and White Chinese Dress - Found in Chinatown, easiest one (and my personal last resort)

2014 Cosplay Plans
Bioshock Infinite - Daisy Fitzroy (0% Completed)
Batman - Talia Al Gul (0% Completed)
Princess Peach: Military Style (0% Completed)

Playing: Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Pokemon X, and Borderlands 2

Right now I'm going to go as Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop in her flashback opera dress from episode 15. That may change, though. XD

I am planning on wearing a prom dress that I wore... few years ago lol (such a pretty dress! Still in style I promise lol)
It would be ok to wear non-cosplay dress, right??

Yep! A lot of people will be wearing prom like dresses and suits. I will be :) As long as it follows the rules with a tasteful neckline which doesn't mean modest exactly.. but not on the verge of a mishap. And that it is at least knee length. As long as it fits the rules then it's fine!

IF I end up going - it'll depend on artist's alley and cohorts, I'd love to attend this ball.

And should I be attending, I plan on having Rue's big fancy dress from Princess Tutu.

Quick Question. Me and my boyfriend would like to go to the Crystal ball but are not sure if our costumes would work (mine would be ok, idk about his) We want to do Link and Princess Zelda (Link wouldn't have the armor with him) would that be ok, or would Link not be formal enough?

Your best bet to make sure that your costumes would be formal enough would be to send an email with a picture of both costumes that you have a question about. It can be a picture of the costumes already made or a picture of the costume/charactor you got off the web of what you are planning on making. You can email crystalball@acen.org and management will take a look and shoot you back a response. Hope this helps! :D

I've got three eligible formal cosplays to pick from. Maybe you guys can help me decide!

Zuko (date night in Ba Sing Se)

Tuxedo Mask

Roy Mustang's default Military wear

I'd say it would be safe to choose between tuxedo mask and the military wear. I do not see the Zuko cosplay to be appropriate for the ball. (my personal opinion, I like the Tuxedo mask!)

I've decided to save money this year by going naked.

That's allowed, right...?

May I be the first to point out that glomping should be a criminally punishable offense in this case?
