Formal Ball help

Post by DarkSignerYusei » Tue Feb 20, 2018 3:28 pm

I was planning on going as Goro Akechi from persona 5 (his work outfit which is a sort of suit and tie thing) and my friend was going to go as the protagonist from the same game. Was wondering if we would have to alter the outfits at all to go to the ball...

Not staff, but hopefully able to help.

Formal ball is formal dress, so a suit and tie sounds reasonable. I don’t know what the protagonist looks like and can’t say, but you could always do a dressed-up version of the cosplay!
2019 Lineup:
Ignis Scientia, FFXV
Tressa Colzione, Octopath Traveler (accompanied by better half as Alfyn Greengrass, Octopath Traveler!)
Secret third cosplay...if I can finish in time...

incidentally, i wanted to ask about this one too as one of my other friends is going as this character... like would we just add a suit jacket and tie or what?
