Princess Twilight Sparkle and Filthy Rich cordially invite guests to their Masquerade Charity Gala Ball this year at BronyCon! In an attempt to raise money for the reparations of Mane Street, Twilight and the Mane 6 will be performing in their “variety show” as you waltz the night away. Guests will have the opportunity to dance to classical and various other musical genres as well as the opportunity to participate in audience interactive events. So won’t you come join us for a dance?
Please read the following dress code and rules for the Grand Galloping Gala before participation. If your attire does not follow our dress conduct, you will NOT be allowed to enter the ballroom.
This is a formal dance event in which guests must arrive in formal dress, military uniform, or formal cosplay attire. All cosplays must adhere to BronyCon’s Cosplay & Props Policy.
Cross-gender attire is acceptable as long as the person is dressed formally.
Ladies: formal or semi-formal dresses of appropriate length, dress pants, skirts, blouses, full formal cosplay, formal shoes, military uniform.
Gentlemen: dress pants, button-down shirts, ties or bowties, full formal cosplay, formal shoes, military uniform, suit or tuxedo.
Guests who appear in the following attire will NOT be allowed entry into the Gala. Including but not limited to: ripped jeans, t-shirts, tank-tops, speedos, short-shorts, mini-skirts, sweat pants, pajamas, props without costume, revealing or inappropriate dress, sport hats. Anything that is considered to be “street wear” is considered to be inappropriate at this event.
Shoes should be formal as well, so no sneakers or beach sandals. Unless you have a medical condition that otherwise specifies you need to wear orthopedic shoes or if it’s for comfort sake, please let security know. For the ladies, we suggest to wear flats or shoes with a lower heel.
Fursuitors: Although the Gala is open to you, be aware that this event will have interactive portions and the room can become crowded at times. Be sure your suit has proper vision and ventilation, or have a handler present to help you. Only one guest can be considered your handler and they maybe exempted from the dresscode.
All other cosplays: You must come to the Gala in FULL COSPLAY. Meaning, you cannot appear with just a part of your outfit. For example, cosplaying as Applejack only wearing a stetson hat and basic street clothing is not acceptable.
Remember, this is a family-friendly event so please no revealing or inappropriate clothing. Any costumes that have the following but not limited to: speedos, short-shorts, mini skirts, or see-through clothing that is more than a third of skin revealed, will not be permitted into the Gala.
All weapons or props that can be considered to be used as one, will not be allowed inside the Gala!
This year's Gala's theme is a masquerade. While guests are not required to wear a mask we do encourage it! Masks should be slim and not cover a significant portion of your face. Additionally, masks must not be inappropriate or offensive to others.
We hope to see you at the Grand Galloping Gala at BronyCon 2017!
