Thanks -- you too -- I'm glad that we stopped there and got swept up by the peeps while trying to wi-fi them

Although I had hoped my Ashitaka would work out, I must say being "Harry Potter" (lol) and killing people with a broom was hella fun xD
I had a great time and do look forward to doing it again.
Thanks a lot for organizing it Rose :3

Thank you Tifa for organizing Cosplay Chess, I hope it becomes a fan tradition at Comic-Con.

I had fun too... which is pretty obvious since I overkilled 99.9% of the time. (But c'mon, snapping doesn't look ...snappy at all. Particularly if no flames are coming out in the first place.)

I thought of two ideas for next year's Cosplay Chess game, it might help in the organizational aspect of it:

1) The use of those non-electric bullhorns-- I know there's an actual word for the object it's just a plastic funnel that amplifies the voice one or two decibels. That would help with getting the moves like "Knight to E4" communicated.

2) Clear tape we can put on the sleeves or arms of participating cosplayers and writing down their positions in metallic sharpie on the tape so Pawns remember they're Pawns, Knights that they're Knights so on and so forth.

And the rest of y'all, I want to say you guys made my first cosplaying experience fun.

I don't know if he has a username on here, or if he's checked this thread out yet-- he was pretty tired afterwards.

My pictures from Sunday are up and I have pictures from the first (rigged) match (had to leave after that).

The whole clear-out combat thing was pretty new to me - that wasn't done when Cosplay Chess was first done back in 2008 and I don't recall there being a Cosplay Chess last year.

I'm hoping for a earlier day the next time around - since while Sunday didn't have many gatherings, I know a good amount of the Cosplayers were just up and tired from Saturday night.

I suggest armbands for next year as well as possibly a large dry-erase board to hold up to write moves such as "A2 -> A4". It's better then having to use a loudspeaker or yell out moves.
