Do you want to dress up like a prince / princess / god / goddess / demon and/or suave llama and dance the night away? Do you just like to dress fancy, hang out with good people and listen to classy geeky music while donating to charity?
Then come to the Kitsune Kon Formal! A ballroom dance lesson will be provided one hour prior to the event. The cost of the formal will be $5 per person at the door, and Kitsune Kon will be giving all proceeds to charity. At least semi-formal attire will be required. Cosplays are also welcome, as long as they meet this requirement.
This dance will have a set list, and all music will be ballroom dance able, but the music will be as anime/video game/geek-like as possible. The names of the different dances will be called out for everyone, but don’t let that stop you from dancing in whatever way feels natural!! The host, and others will be going around helping people if they want to learn/practice the different dances.
‘Line of dance’ rules will be followed. What does that mean? If you’re dancing a style (e.g. foxtrot) that moves around the floor, you’ll be traveling in a counter-clockwise direction. If you during these types of dances, dance in the middle of the dance floor. If it is a ‘spot’ or stationary dance, pick a spot and dance wherever you like!
The Dress Code
Although Ball gowns and Tuxedos are encouraged, a minimum of semi-formal attire is all that is strictly required. Cosplay/Crossplay should resemble formal or semiformal wear. If you want to cosplay as a character who does not usually dress up (e.g. L, Goku, any of the sailor scouts, etc.), just use your imagination and assume that someone forced them to dress for this occasion.
Examples of acceptable attire:
- Ball gowns
- Cocktail dresses
- Evening gowns
- Prom dresses
- Military dress uniforms
- Shirts with jackets and/or ties
Examples of unacceptable attire:
- Shirts with no jacket and/or tie
- Large props/costume appendages
