Anime Expo 2013 skit idea

So how many of you have played Detective Barbie when they were little?

All of you?

AWESOME.

lol so basically, I've had this idea for a while, and being inspired by other skits that have put a twist on children's shows, like "Sora the Explorer" and such, I thought it would be interesting to have a Detective Barbie skit where she's investigating a mystery at, you guessed it, Anime Expo.

I'm still trying exactly to figure out what key jokes and references, but I plan to have the intro and such and some of the running gags from the old game, as well as have Barbie run into cosplayers/anime characters.

I wanted to get your opinion on it to see if this sounds like it has potential? Thanks guys

It would need to be very focused on a certain theme if interacting with other anime characters.

But all in all, I think it has promise.

Yea yea, I see what you mean. I was thinking obviously she'd have a mystery, like maybe someone goes missing, and so she interviews characters or finds clues. But I'll definitely have to stick to one thing. Thanks

Aw! and it's ok, it was a game that came out for windows 95 and it was pretty awesome.

I think the idea has great potential.

But you may want to use an anime or manga character as a substitute for Barbie.

The Anime Expo judges are known to be very strict about allowing non-anime or non-manga characters into a skit.
