What is the Otaku Royale?

Simple. Its a game. For the next three months, three non-okatu will be going head to head against each other to turn themselves from unknowing newbies to fully cosplayed and knowagible convention Otakus.

The Rules
These three guys have 3 months to prepare themselves for Katsucon by watching an anime (or playing a video game), studying one character, and then create a costume. Then, wear it to the con. Sound easy? It gets alot more interesting...

While at the con, they must do a list of things given to them. If they succeed in this, they get points, but if they fail, they loose points. The person with the most points at the end of the con will win the game.

This will be filmed over the three month spanned and at the convention. They will be giving video cameras of their own to show their work as we progress.

*Hosted by the wonderful YuffieLeonhart, and moderated by myself, Oshi, TyJILDown, and Suo18.* If anyone is interested in being a judge for the convention itself, please PM or E-Mail me and I will fill you in. 1 of the 5 judge's spots are already filled. Post here if you wanna help out in any way.

CCAmada- thank you for your bio and paperwork ^_^

All the judges positions are now filled. Those who have been selected to be moderators have been notified and the players are finalizing their business with me.

Ok, about the website. Due to the fact that a new one is in-progress, there will be no big updates until the new site is done. I don't wanna give more work for Paul.

Mods- you will be receiving information on your people in the next few days, rules and other such things will be followed by the packet.

Judges- I will post the final list of who you all are in the next few days as well.

As for me...I'm gonna go recoop. from my cold...

Please IM me for information on receiving your passes from me. This is uber important.

Thank you ^_^

On the last day of the con, about noon, there will be a short filming shoot to record the opener of the show.
It will require the Host, Mods, and Judges to be there.
Also, you must have a set of all black clothes and a pair of black sunglasses. Sleek and stylish is the key.

If you want to be in this, PLEASE PM, IM, or E-Mail Me ASAP!
Its last minute....but if you all could come back, it would be awesome!
