Here is the info that you need to know about chess and applyingThis Post Is SUPER long. If you read it all you will know just about everything you will need to know about cosplay chess. You can do it!!

Hi Everyone,


I am working out a new system for people to sign up with this year that will make it easier for me to keep up with them all.


If you went to AZlast year we were the ones who run the match last year, also the ones at katsucon. We are excited to be once again be running a great panel.


The theme for this chess match will be “cute vs creepy”

I just want to makes this post about the general things people will need to know about the match.

I am NOT taking applications right now. I am getting a system together in the next two weeks. I will make another post about when and were you can sign up for it at.


Here are a few things you need to know about the match:

*1st you don’t have to know how to play chess. There will be two chess players that will direct your movements for you.

*People will be select based on theme and quality of the costume (but this is not the most important thing.) Also, we want characters that are well known so that everyone in the audience will know who you are. Characters who are well known will be given priority, but if you cosplay a lesser-known character there is still a chance that you will be chosen depending on how many people apply. However lesser known may not be chosen, so be aware of that when you apply. If there are a lot of the same characters that apply, only the person that we think has the best quality costume will be chosen. (That’s not to say that we don’t like your costume, it’s just that we don’t want the whole chessboard to be dominated by one character/show.)

*Only 32 people will be chosen. There will be alternates and several special attacks. You will not be able to chosen which side you are on or which chess piece you will be. I mean it! If you don’t like what you get sorry not everyone can be a king/queen!

*This is how I chose the positions of King, Queen, Bishops, Rooks, and Knights: if there are two characters that are from the same series then they will be paired together in one of those positions. If there are characters on both sides of the board that are from the same series, again, they will be placed in the same position as their counterparts. For example, this year at AZ, Mario and Luigi were the Knights for the good side and Wario and Waluigi were the Knights on the evil side. (BUT THIS MIGHT CHANGE.)

*Also this chess match is not about playing a “real” chess match. It is more or less staged and a theatrical match. If you do know how to play chess, please do not try to help the two players we have playing for us. We are limited on time and more moves are based on impulse than actual thinking in this game. By coming up and trying to make better suggestions it slows the game and puts all the events/panels following Cosplay Chess behind schedule.


Keep in mind that this is a theatrical production, not a best costume contest. So we need to know what you will do in order to ensure that we keep the crowd entertained.

*You can apply with several different costumes, but only one will get picked. Whichever one is the best.

* You also can apply as a group. You need to fill out the info for EVERY member of your group. Also a group leader will need to be designated. However, if you do apply as a group some members may not be picked. If you do not fill out an application for each member, you will have to resubmit your application.

*If you are picked you will receive an email from me. So keep your contact info updated. If you do not respond or I do not hear from you any you will lose your spot.


* There will be a REQUIRED pre-match meeting for ALL particpants. I am looking to see if the con will let me have a room for all of us to meet: if not, I will post a meeting place of my choosing…probably a location away from the bulk of the convention within the hotel. If you do no come you will lose your place and I will have your place filled by an alternate that shows up for the meeting. When I find out about the when and where I will post more info and send emails out to everyone.


I’m looking forward to this! It going to be awesome!! Again, I will keep posting info about the match as time goes on so keep checking back.

Haha, I think you mean Animazement Cosplay Chess.

Animazement is still rather far away, so I haven't even started on some costumes I know I'll have by that time. How close to the con will you be taking applications?

Also, at the moment I'm still not exactly sure if I'm even going to Animazement (I want to!). Would that still be okay?

Now that the new year is almost here that means AZ is right around the conner. So if you have not signed up for chess you need to get on it. So far I have like three people who have signed up. If you would like to be in chess read the info that is in the other post.

I would like to start working out the line up as soon as possible.

Oh and the theme is “cute vs creepy”

Cute vs. Creepy, though, super cool. Can't wait!

For Animazement, no matter what, I'm always behind. D: And it's the only con that I'm behind on. I usually get things down early for all other conventions, even with a big load like this. But, AZ just doesn't like me.. T3T

That's good to hear~ I'm getting close to getting these done. I just need to grab my sister so I can do a sketch of a pattern for her outfit. -nod- She's just lazy, so I've been working on other things until she gets around to me. Which means~ I get to work on my own cosplay for once! <3

If this was good vs. evil or somesuch, I could see where being "well known" would be important (not really, but whatever).... but if your character is creepy, it's usually pretty plain to see just by looking at them. Don't really see why only the popular mainstream stuff should get attention at an event like this. I think it's silly to count out a character whose appearance alone is pretty much the definition of creepy, just because there aren't a ton of people that know the anime/game it comes from.

Suppose this means I'll be able to make it to the Final Fantasy photoshoot, though... so all is well. Just thought I'd throw my 2 cents in.

As an avid horror nut, I have to say that I wouldn't be afraid of any of those "creepy" things in a dark alley. Well, except maybe Greed because he could beat the shit out of me, but he's not creepy. I was really hoping for some horror stuff like Silent Hill monsters, zombies, ghosts (Fatal Frame or otherwise), etc. and not just bad guys.

EDIT: Same goes for the cute side. I wouldn't have a cuteness-induced heart attack from seeing most of those frolicking in a field of daisies and sunshine. It seems like it will be difficult to differentiate the creepy side from the cute side. Just saying.

Thank you for you two cent and I feel the same about having so much mainstream shows
I would like less mainstream show as well. But b/c chess is on a volunteer system I have to work with what I people send me. If you know any one who would like to be in chess and less mainstream pls send them my way

Like I said in the last post I work with what people send me. I have only had people from the Fatal Frame game sign up and on top of that as the same character. I am a little Disappointed with what signed up for the creepy side.

Also I still have people I need to look at...like all the Fatal Frame people.....not going to be fun there like 6. ..why?

Also PEOPLE SEND A PICTURE OF YOU IN YOUR COSPLAY!!!I KNOW WHO ED FROM FMA IS!!! I DON'T NEED HIS PICTURE!!! When I get more pictures better characters for the match!

Okay, this is kind of exciting to me. SIX Fatal Frame people? I think that's the most love I've ever seen this game get at Animazement (...or anywhere, really). And if they're signing up for the creepy side, I'm assuming this means that they are not Mio and Mayu - even more excitement!

Honestly, I wish more AZ cosplayers knew about this event, because I KNOW that there is going to be at least one Pyramid Head at the con, and there are always a handful of nurses around. This just feels like something that Silent Hill and Fatal Frame cosplayers should come out of the wordwork for. As for the anime side of things, I know that the genuinely eerie/creepy stuff tends to be more obscure, but... I mean, I know it exists. Somewhere. It's just sad that the ghosts, ghouls and creepers are so underrepresented here.

Oh! And I apologize for having jumped to the conclusion that you'd already finished looking through all of the applicants. I was under the impression that things like Fatal Frame had been excluded from the event for being relatively obscure (but very, VERY well loved by anyone that's ever tried them...).

I thought I sent in the pic for my Heartless.... did it not attach properly? Or am I one of those who you're not sure it would bring an interesting element to the game?

Or do people not know about the Heartless from the Kingdom Hearts series? They're the monsters you gotta fight! :waaaah:

I'm gonna go with cute, too. For something like this, I think it's best to base a character's team membership on their appearance rather than their personality. After all, not everyone in the audience is going to know every character on the board. If a character looks cute, it should be on the cute side. Looks creepy, should go on the creepy side. Personalities complicate things unnecessarily for a visual event like this.

EXCEPT in the case of Master Roshi. Gods alive, I lol'd good and hard at that one. XD

Traditionally, we leave three spaces open on each side so people can sign up at the convention. This is so that people who are not yet aware of the forums get a chance to try to be in Cosplay Chess.

So, we will be looking for three people to be on the cute side, and three people for the creepy side.

HERE'S ALL THE IMPORTANT INFO!

Friday, May 22nd at 4pm, we will start gathering people in the lobby on the second floor. We will be at the end of the lobby farthest away from registration.

You: need to bring a picture of the costume you're going to use or if you're already in the costume, just show up!

We will be hanging out there for a while, so don't worry if you can't make it exactly at 4pm. However, if we fill the slots or if traffic is non-existent for a long period of time, then we will close up shop.

You will know if you were selected by checking the information board near Con HQ. We will post the complete cast list there once it's finished. The location of Con HQ will be in your con books. Alternatively, we might inform you on the spot. That will be at the discretion of the Cosplay Chess crew.

Thanks guys! I had a blast as always, tho I didn't get to use my attacks. (I was Rainbow Brite.)

But zipchan and I were able to crack people up as Madusa continued the abuse on poor Rainbow on the sidelines. I know you wanted to do more with the character, so if Rainbow Brite fits in the theme next year, I'll be happy to bring her back for "comeback" performance.

so i left. but it looked really interesting this year.

maybe choose some unknown characters.. there were alot of final fantasy ppl this year and a few tekken

Cosplay chess was so fun this year! And that has nothing to do with the fact that I got the checkmate, either. Or that Halo and I got to take out Medusa. >D Those were just delicious bonuses. kekekeke

You can bet that I'll be back next year, even if I don't get to be a piece again I'll be more than happy to help out or film the whole event or whatnot. ^^

I would just like to say that being in cosplay chess this year was AMAZINGLY fun, and I hope to be part of it again next year. To all the pieces, you guys did a fantastic job. I loved the chance to interact with you guys in a theatrical sort of sense, and you all did a wonderful job attacking and dying =)

And to the staffers/heads of the show, amazingly well done. Things went off without a hitch, and I had a blast. Looking forward to next year!

Cheers,

Needles here, finally making the switch to my new coscom name.

You guys were absolutely cute, no question - and I also have an epic picture of Sakura screaming as you're dying. It's a little dark because it was taken from a ways away (and it was dark in there anyway), but she did an awesome job with the facial expression. If you guys want it, I'd be more than happy to send it =)

And to salty: I am so glad you found me so creepy. That just warms my heart and gives me all kinds of warm fuzzles.

I actually had no idea where you were being attacked, Tohma. I was like "OH SHI--" when we turned around. I thought you were being attacked from the front! WHOOPS!
