Chess was fun last year, but I'm not if I'll do it again; I guess it depends what character I will be on the day of the match. Is it on Sunday again, I'm assuming?

I assume. There's not a whole lot of detail on the page...

I'm curious about who we'll see this year myself.

he's right. I don't have a pic of my costume because it's not finished, actually we just washed the stuff yesterday night after we got it

I think I might be Orochimaru from Naruto in the game. Either that or Sexy no Jutsu Gaara

the only rule we have is no made up characters, and i think that may count as a made up.

Can anyone explain (or clarify) what cosplay chess entails? or anything else about it? (srry; i missed the chance to cosplay last year and never got to see it so i'm a little clueless about it)

Was that directed at me? I did CTicon cosplay chess last year (I was Yuki) and I'm sure they'd allow in SnJ Gaara, but I said I'd probably be Orochimaru. They had Pantsman last year, and he's from a webcomic (pity he didn't get to attack).

(think they would allow SnJ Gaara, considering it is a real character, with a real jutsu although gaara hasnt ever used it... but fans would understand.)

ok cosplay chess is this:

Two fans or (whowever the con decides) play a regular chess game against each other (the chess peices are sometimes regular chess pieces, sometimes figureines of the characters with the type of peice it is IE rook) Meanwhile, there is a GIANT chessboard onstage that has people in cosplay standing on it pretending to be the pieces... When one player takes another players piece (for the sake of argument say a rook inuyasha takes a naruto knight) then everyone on the board moves away from those two, and those two have what is called a battle royale... where they mock fight, and sometimes use special attacks by calling on other cosplay members... (inuyasha uses blades of blood on naruto, but naruto calls on a sakura to nag inus head off, then inuyasha uses his tetsuiga to put an end to both of them)it doesnt matter what happens in the fight its just for show, because if the rook took the knight, then the knight has to be defeated in the battle royale, they then move offstage...

If the game finishes early, then usually its just random battle royales in which fans call upon two characters to mock fight just for fun... the outcome is totally up to them....

-_-;; sorry if im bad at describing things, but i hope this helps
