Grand Cosplay Ball  
I was reading about everyone else getting ready for it, and now I have a huge urge to go again. Turns out the tickets are only £18 so the main cost is getting there and accom.

Basically.. anyone else fancy it? Nikki? Jenny? Kelly? Claire? Donna? Gracewing? Anyone missed because I didn't think they would be interested?

The website's here, and it's on the 29th November. :)

Current Mood: hopefulhopeful

Oh did I not say? I knew I was keeping it quiet till I knew for deff i got the place...did I jus fully forget to mention it??

Ahhh well wither way...start my MA Social work in January...so cuts down on the work hours and cash flow etc...hence why this years costumes for con (if I get there *fingers crossed*) will most likely be 2 repeats and something simple/easy and cheap and cheerfull :)

I don't think you did. =/ Though I do have fail memory, but I'm sure you didn't mention it..

And aah, cool. :D Congrats on getting the place you wanted!

Nothing wrong with repeats. ;) I always repeat atleast one a year anyway.. :) Dunno what I'm doing as regards to conventions though, mainly because I don't know if Nikki will end up going (and I don't want to go alone, haha...)
But it's ages away. :D

Awww, rubbish. :(

Maybe next year eh? We should all put together and get a box* next year, lol. (My god they're so expensive, but when you add the regular ticket costs together for that many people it's very little more. XD)

*I'm just randomly brainstorming, don't mind me. :)

Yeah, I keep remembering that it *is* a ball, and dancing really isn't my thing, heh. I just like dressing up I suppose. ^^ And I like the idea of the Hansel and Gretel styled photo suite thingum. :) Also the performance bits.

But yeah it really is geered towards hetero's who reallly like dancing lol. Ah well. :)

Ahh no no I don't mean it like that. :) I know no-one would mind if people of the same gender *did* dance together, but it goes off dance cards, so the idea is to ask people. And that's where it gets a bit complicated. ;)

And yeah, bringing a 'significant other' would be nice, but failing that you can stand on my feet lol. Aslong as you don't damage my cosplay. ;)

Lol, yeah exactly!

And 'tea-total' as in nothing but tea, I hope. We both know how 'good' your alcohol tolerance is, lol. ;) (Alternatively we could just all wait till we got back to the accom and have mojito's. :D)

TBH a ball isn't my thing at all (I didn't even like my high school prom thing)

The whole concept sounds interesting but I rekon I'd get board very easily...and I really need to start watching my penny's :)

Heh, I know what you mean. :) I probably would get bored myself, but I guess if you're with people you can always chat (if it's not stupidly noisy..)

I just want an excuse to cosplay really, lol! (Not to mention, it's a venue I really want to see. :) )

I really did want to go this year, and I said to myself last year that I really wanted to make it this year, but sadly with SImon being unemployed again there's just no way I can afford it. Even with not making a new outfit for it and maybe wearing my Ivy, just can't afford the accom and travel and tickets etc. (can barely pay the bills atm, seriously) Which makes me sad :( cos I really want to go. I've always wanted to go to a big proper lavish ball. (Simon is still debating whether or not he wants to go, but I do)

I'll get there one year...one year.... u_u
kurenai_tenkakurenai_tenka on October 5th, 2009 02:25 pm (UTC)
Next year eh? :) We'll all save/book in advance and stuff. :) And even if Simon doesn't want to go, I'll go with you, lol.

Though Ivy would be awesome for something like that, perhaps with exception of the shoes, maybe not the best thing to try dancing in. XD

Hope the money situation improves soon hun! *hugs*

If we were going girlxgirl the the Ivy probably would work better :P I'd be the 'girl prince' character lol Just like Utena 8D hyuk hyuk


What I was wanting to make for the cosplay ball though is uber poofy and a girly indulgeance (I know, they happen so rarely with me eh? :P) I think I showed you before, it's the epic Le Chevalier D'eon dress (from the manga, not the horrible one from the anime) http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v245/Winged_Dark_Elf/Cosplay%20Ideas/chevalier_eon_01.jpg (it has some crazy detailing - which you can't make out in that photos but you can in others)

But I would be happy getting a chance to re-wear Ivy :)

And thanks, I hope the money situation gets better soon too x_x

Hyuk hyuk? Channelling Ryuuk are you? ;) And yaaay, girl-prince Nikki! *swoon* XD

And aaah, yes, that dress. Had a look at that one myself. :) I looked into the series briefly, and it totally had me, until I saw random Lolita's and my period-geek had a rage, lol. But hey, I thought the real Chevalier D'eon sounded like a really interesting person. And that is still an awesome dress. x.x Would take a hell of a lot of time, lol (and it's hard to imagine you wearing something so poofy ;) ), but would be fantastic to see done. <3
