The Kitsune Kon Formal is back for a second year!
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 music while donating to charity?
Then come to the first Kitsune Kon Formal! The Kitsune Kon Formal is scheduled for Friday, July 22nd from 10 PM to 12 PM in ???????. A ballroom dance lesson will be provided from 9 PM – 10 PM, and stamps for the event will be available at the registration area. The cost of the formal will be $5 per person, and Kitsune Kon will be giving all proceeds to charity. Additional details are below.
The Kitsune Kon Formal, like its name implies, is a formal event. The dress code is Black Tie “encouraged”. This means that attendees are encouraged to wear gowns and tuxedos, although semi-formal attire is acceptable. Cosplay/Crossplay is also welcome, but must be formal or semi-formal in nature. Think attire that you would wear at a classy wedding and above for this event!
This dance will include a lot of ballroom dance music, and have a setlist, 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 possibly others will be going around helping people if they want to learn the different dances.
One important note: ‘Line of dance’ rules will be followed. What does that mean? If you’re dancing a style (e.g. waltz) that moves around the floor, you’re traveling in a counter-clockwise direction. If you wish to just dance in one place while ‘traveling dance’ such as waltz is happening, dance in the middle of the dance floor. If it is a ‘spot’ or stationary dance, pick a spot and dance wherever you like!
Don’t know how to dance, or would like to refine your skills? A beginner’s ballroom dance class is also planned at no extra charge from 6-7 p.m. for those of you who would like to learn a few moves and/or meet your fellow dancers.
The Kitsune Kon Formal will be a limited capacity event. Anyone who wishes to attend will need to sign up for a ticket beforehand. Signing up can be done in one of two ways: at registration, or at the info booth one hour prior to the event. NOTE: Since this is a formal event, if people have tickets and do not wear semi-formal or formal attire attempt to enter the ball will be turned away at the discretion of the staff, so stay classy people!

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
