Anime Expo Cosplay Chess 2014

COSPLAY CHESS: ANIME EXPO: 2014

Hello one and all! Welcome to the official Cosplay Chess thread for Anime Expo 2014. Please be sure to keep track of the other thread over on the AX forums or follow us on Facebook!

What is Cosplay Chess? Cosplay Chess is a game in which the cosplayers are used as the pieces for an epic chess match controlled by their Mighty Kings!! The game itself is played out just like a normal chess match. The players will make their moves on a regular chess board and then the Pieces will move to the corresponding locations on a large scale chess board which they'll be standing on. At each confrontation the attacking piece will have a "Battle" with its target. We hope you'll come to watch, or if you think you can meet the call to arms sign up to play!

For Those of you who want to Play as pieces
Below is a link to download the application. Inside are all the rules and information necessary for applying. Please make sure to read them.

LINK: https://www.mediafire.com/?pmc11cczmh69cx1

Please be sure to READ the application and then fill out all blank spaces at the end and send it in before June 1st.

The Match-ups
Only those who sign up will play. If the roster is full for the game a backup list will be made. The backup list is decided by us as well. If you are going to be in the game, BE THERE EARLY We wanna make sure all things are managed and covered before the game goes on.

Announcers: Maguma

The Game roster will be sent to participants on TBA

With ALA's passing the gears are already turning for Anime Expo. None of us were all too pleased with 2013's performance so we're going to be working EXTRA hard to make sure that 2014's show blows it and all prior Cosplay Chess performances CLEAN outta the water!!

Be sure to stay tuned for more updates about the event, send those applications in as soon as possible, and spread the word! This time around the game's gonna be on a whole new level!!!!

I'm undecided between Sailor Mercury and Kirk-era Starfleet Redshirt #6.

Might come as Consuela from Family Guy. But it all depends on what day it is and the when gatherings I'm planning on attending are. Would be pretty funny to see a Mexican Housekeeper in a fight with another fictional character. XD

This seems like it could be pretty fun! I'll probably sign up for it, but I want to see when it is before I can say who I'll be cosplaying. I was going to do Kirito on days 1-2 and Okabe Rintarou on days 3-4, but if it's on day 1 or 3 I could probably make an exception and come as Scott Pilgrim if it's on day 1 or 3 (but I may prefer one of the others anyway, I don't know). But this certainly seems fun. Especially since I'm sure it's fair to not judge what it's going to be like based off of the video I've seen from 2013. :v

I wanted to do this at ALA, but my costume wasn't ready in time. I'll keep an eye out to see how things come together, as that will determine if I'll be participating and which character I would be.

2013 was a very unfortunate year for Cosplay Chess due to a lot of technical problems on the staff side but we all plan to rectify that. Our game organizers Daniel and Jaime are hard at work to make sure that this year the show will be beyond fantastic!!!

If your computer doesn't read doc files, send in an email to maguma_usagi@yahoo.com and we can copy/paste you the application

I'll obviously be a pawn if I'm selected to participate as Kirk-era Starfleet Redshirt. I'm not sure what piece would suit Sailor Mercury though. Anybody here have any suggestions?

Can I change the character that I put on the application if I already sent it in? My cosplay changes depending on which day it is.
