Fashion @ Convention

ok, so since this is my first convention was wondering if anyone can give any advice on how dressy or un-dressy the parties are and also how many parties are there?  Need some idea so I know what to pack, thanking you ladies (or gents) in advance :mrgreen:

There are parties every night from Friday-Sunday, with the formality increasing each night.  So I'd go for something dressy, but maybe a little funky for Friday, a nice party dress for Saturday, and something more elegant for the Sunday one.  Picnic is of course casual, as are the lectures that ALL of you should attend  :whip:

I think it depends on the style you wish to show.

Friday: Jeans/shorts and a top with heels

Saturday - a top and skirt?

Sunday last party - A dress.

Picnic - casual.

I'll probably bring tons of clothes and decide minutes before the party.

My 2 cents:

You basically dress according to how you would attend a party.  Nothing really formal like wedding, because you want to look good and be comfortable.  Its summer so I'm assuming the ladies can get by with simple dresses or tops/skirts and the guys can run around in jeans or slacks to impress with a collared shirt or other wise.  Unless you're from canada, then expect something with a little more flair loool ;)

Friday, less formal for parties.... not a big turnout usually as people are just checking in and hanging out at lobbies meeting friends/relatives lol

Saturday and Sunday are the bigger parties, with Sunday being the biggest because its the last night of convention and everyone is in emergency hook-up mode.

Picnic is casual of course.

Reason no convention in Aussie land?  Well its in America b/c of the Assyrian American National Federation (AANF) , the group who runs it.  I'm sure if you had a similar body in Australia you can organize one as well.

There was one organised, but the hotel had a minimum requirement of people that had to be booked in by a deadline, and ofcourse they failed to reach it.

We do; the Assyrian Australian National Federation. They organise the Assyrian New Year where about 10,000 people attend each year. I don?t know if they are considering organising a convention though.

That's weird how they can organize a New Years party but not a Convention, its just another party! lol
