    You are cordially invited to our formal event of the year, the Alcon Masquerade Ball. Taking place between 9pm to midnight, this will be a highlight of Alcon 2014 which will bring you an enchanted evening of live-entertainment, music, acts and wonder. We encourage you to attend in smart cosplay or formal attire.

    To attend, you simply register your ticket via the Alcon website here. For 45 you can access the entire convention for four entire days of fun with a massive lineup of special guests. If you're interested in the Ball only, we offer the entire Saturday from 10am in the morning to 3am at night for 24 under a one-day ticket.

    Highlights

    #Live Entertainment on Stage: There will be live singing from classically trained fan-favourite Kerri-Veck and internet celebrity EileMonty. The world-famous Beckii Cruel shall also be present to headline our lineup of dance acts throughout the night. Please check back as we unveil our full schedule for the night.

    #Music: We will be playing a selection of slow and medium paced ball room music, as well as some other popular choices for dancingc, such as Waltz for The Moon. . Feel free to make suggestions for music you would like to dance to, in this thread, and where possible we will aim to include this, though again it will be based on our decision as to the suitability. Please note if it isn't classical, or related to gaming or animation there is a strong likelihood it won't be played.

    #Food & Snacks Provided: We shall be putting on a full spread of food and snacks for our guests to indulge in throughout the night.

    #A Complimentary Photograph Provided: There will be a photography area hosted by Real Time Events, where you can get a free 5x7" photo taken and printed for you (limited to one per guest, couple or group). Normally the photo would cost 5 - we shall give you it for free to take home with you as a reminder of an amazing night.


    Dress Code: Smart-Casual to Formal Wear

    #Cosplay is not compulsory, but smart-casual dress code is.
    #Not all Cosplay is appropriate: please consider if the cosplay could be considered smart or formal. Yoko from Gurren Lagann or Luffy from One Piece is not formal. We don't want to be too limiting so I will avoid saying as many specific no's as possible, but if it involves shorts, a mini skirt, or no top, then it is almost certainly not suitable for this event.
    #Generally: No Trainers, No Flip Flops, No Jeans, No Shorts and No Hoodies.
    #This list is not exhaustive - but should hopefully provide a good idea of what is and isn't appropriate.

    Where there is a potential issue with a choice of attire the member of staff will make every effort to explain which points need addressing so you can make a quick change - It may be a case of changing your shoes, tucking in a shirt, or not carrying round a buster sword.


    Guest Tips

    #Make an effort - You may regret turning up and feeling under dressed, but you will not regret being well presented.

    #Dancing - You don't need to dance. Whilst it might be fun to know a little bit, for the most part the dance floor tends to be too crowded to perform a full waltz, and there is a good chance your dane partner won't know any formal dances.

    #Dance Partners - Do spend a couple of minutes to learn the correct way to hold your dance partner. Knowing just a little bit may be good for confidence as well if you do plan on dancing with strangers.

    #Dancing with Strangers - Dance with strangers. You may be attending the ball with a significant other or you may be attending on your own, but ultimately it is likely to be because you enjoy getting dressed up and dancing. This is a social event, and if you are social you will get the most out of it. Asking strangers to dance can be a little scary but try not to over think it. You aren't asking someone to marry you. I have never seen anyone decline an invitation to dance, so you can ask in confidence. Likewise if you are attending with a partner, and someone asks them to dance don't take offence. It just means they either like your partners choice in dress, or that they can see your partner is a good dancer.

    #Nerves - If you are very nervous, plan to dance with a few friends first to get in the swing of it. This will help remind you that a dance is a dance, and not a date. If you find nerves (or heat from formal clothing) give you sweaty palms, maybe wear some dress gloves, this will add a flair to your attire, and take your mind of the fact you have sweaty hands, and wondering if you should ignore it or apologise.

    #Pre-plan dances - This event will be on Saturday night. That means you have two days of making friends. If you make friends with someone on Friday offer to have a dance with them at the ball. The fact it isn't happening right there and now makes it much less scary.


    Music Requests and any Questions?

    Please address them in here. Thanks everyone, we look forward to seeing you at the event.
