I dress rather casually on a regular basis, so I like to dress up for shows. (Even if it doesn't always look like it) I have yet to attend a dolls/amanda/brian show, but you can bet if it happens I'll probably dress up a bit. To me, it makes the event a bit more special and fun. I love knowing that I'm going to a show, and taking the time to plan my outfit, hair, makeup ect...Yeah, I'm the girl planning what she's gonna wear a month or so in advance. It's allpart of the fun for me.
And boo to the people who sneer at those who do dress up...if they're not harming anyone, let them have their fun.
