I was video footage of last year's parade and I was curious how one gets involved in it? Do you have to sign anything at all? It looks like a whole lot of fun! ^^v

Thanks for the link! I didn't seem to see cosplay.com on the list of participants. Do you know if we're in the parade at all this year?

Personally, I knew a lot of c.com members did participate, but most were already part of established groups like the Firefly, Stargate People, Lord of the Rings, and of course the 501st Stormtrooper Legion etc. I dont' recall a specific cosplay.com group

The parade organizers will group individuals and small similar groups together, so if you can't pull together a big general anime group...they'll try to do it on the spot.

Yeah, the Team was in it last year, but we were represented as the Ghostbusters from Team Takeo.

Can I ask where you found the footage at? I was in the parade last year, and I was wondering what it looked like (since I had a very specific view- heh).

how many do you need in a group?

LOL. We'd been toying with the idea of signing up to be a storm trooper and showing up in an ANBU costume.

That wouldn't make a difference. They'd just put you in with the anime characters when you showed up.

She's right. I've been in the parade two years. If you sign up with one costume and wear another, you just get put into another group like with the Anbu.

I worked parade staff last year, and will most likely be working it again this year. Everyone's pretty much covered all there is that you need to know about it. The Yahoo Group is where all the signups are taking place. Then, once you get to the Con, all you have to do is stop by the table and pickup your ribbon(s) and you're good to go.

This year I plan on having a more comfortable costume so I'll be Princess Leia in her Ewok Village dress. Last year I was Barriss Offee and I ended up regreting it by the end of the RL photoshoot cause my make-up was almost gone.

I don't believe there's a minimum. I mean, it would be hard to be a "group" if you're only one person, but they let single entries into the parade. Basically, anyone can be in the parade as long as they sign up ahead of time and show up when staff tells them to.

essentially they'll find a group for you, if you're group-less. i was yuuko last year and they stuck me in the anime group...
where i unintentionally flashed parade onlookers. oops. stupid breeze.

this year i'm going to march with my Chattooine (my local star wars fan force) people..we have a banner. we're way too excited.

my fist time in it the RA just saw ma and were like come march with us . So were you march doesn’t seam to be carved in stone or any thing.

I’m debating on marching with the Mischief Managed group this year. But right now I’m having trouble being in 2 places at one time.

Yup, we'll find a group for ya depending on your costume of choice. The way the parade is sectioned off is we have a section for each of the various tracks that the Con has (Anime, Trek, Star Wars, Tolkien, YA Lit, Goth, etc.) Every group that signs up will be categorized accordingly. They've even added a Podcasting track this year. So if anyone wants to come dressed as a giant I-Pod....you'll have your place.
