Report Otakon 2019: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly in Post Otakon 2019 Posted September 7, 2019 On 7/30/2019 at 12:31 PM, Paste connoisseur said: Supposedly the ball on Friday had a tux only dress requirement for the guys, which is insane. Apparently the people running it were talked down a little but that is a bit nuts. As someone who helped out with the formal ball, this isn't really accurate. It was a formal event, which means a person couldn't show up in shorts & a t-shirt. Clothing such as tux's & ball gowns were highly encouraged but as long as you come in nice attire you'd be let in (ex: slacks and a button up shirt would be fine).
