Cosplay Court Case at Connecticon

Cosplay Court Case is scheduled for Friday from 8 to 10pm!!! (This can always change but that's the schedule currently.) There will be time for two different court cases. Each case is about an hour so if you can't come for the whole time there will be hour blocks. : )



Cosplay Court Case debuted at Connecticon last year and was held succesfully at Anime Boston this year. The conception is as follows. Cosplayers act out the roles of the characters they are cosplaying as a character(s) are put on trial for various crimes. Other cosplayers take on the roles of the prosecution, defense, judge, baliff, and witnesses. For the most part the event is all improv and tries to involve as many people as possible.

There are generally no sign ups, since 1.) it's not a main event 2.) it has no definitive timeslot so people wouldn't know what they're committing to, and 3.) many convention attendees do not visit the forums. However, expressing interest, suggestions, et cetera, does help the event get going and if I have an idea of who may be going and what they might want to do, it might move things along. However, I am recruiting judges beforehand if at all possible. To be a judge one needs to meet the following requirements 1.) Be in cosplay. 2. ) Be at the Court Case 3.) Be willing to learn how the event is run so they can keep the court in order once the case itself begins. If anyone is interested in being a judge please let me know. I'll be seeing who is interested up until around early July.


Regarding Phoenix Wright I know that there are many people who would like to see characters from the game in the Court Case. I am not opposed to the idea, however 1.), there needs to be cosplayers from the game actually at the event, and
2.) Both previous court cases have worked without Phoenix Wright, and the event is meant to be open to everyone, so if things fall into place sure we can have a case like that, but there are plenty of cosplayers with other characters that have done an exemplary job in their roles and I would not exclude them. The case can be hilarious either way.

Thank you for reading.

What's this Phoenix Wright? I've never heard of it.

This sounds like a wicked good time, and I've always wanted to try to get in on one of these at a con but I've always been too busy on staff or such. I should have the time at CTCon, though -- count me in. Not sure who I'll be cosplaying that day, either Ed Elric, Allen Walker, or maybe Cardcaptor Sakura...

D00d... you don't cosplay CCS, silly! She's a GIRL!! XD

Anyhoo, if you want to do the court case as Ed, maybe I can convince some of the peeps who are in the Masquerade skit with me to help you out. We have a Roy and a Hughes... putting Roy on the stand for Harassment of Shorties (or is that "Shortie Discrimination?") would be hilarious.

Then again, there IS always the possibility of Tsukasa sueing CC Corp for making a faulty game that caused him to go into a coma...

FWIW, Phoenix Wright would be tons of WIN.

XD Oh crap, good point. Tsukasa's pretty upset about that in his own passive way, but it'd be hard to put a "CC Corp" on stand.. I think this sort of thing is better when it's "the people versus..."

Just an update, while I am leaving most of the roles open ended up right up until the con, I am trying to line up some judges prior to the event. More details in the first post, but if anyone is interested let me know.

Ooh, I know that game! I didn't play it, but I know it has to do with court and screaming OBJECTION!

I'm in if you need anything, I could be a judge whatever. =3 I'm being Edward from Cowboy Bebop, so contact me if you'd like me to do something. XD

We can use anyone who is interested. The Cosplay Court Case is currently scheduled for Friday at 8-10pm. That will give time for there to be two cases at least. Any questions please let me know. People don't have to attend for the full two hours, but it gives them flexibility. Come at 8 stay till 9 or come at 9 stay till 10, or whatever! ^_^

I'm still disappointed I missed it last year, so I'll try to make it this time, at least to watch. ^_^ On Friday I'll either be Momo Hinamori from Bleach or Sakura Haruno from Naruto Shippuuden... dunno if either of those characters would work for anything.
