Cosplay Chess

I was wondering if anyone else on these boards has been contacted recently by the cosplay Chess Coordinator.

I was confirmed as being accepted in April or early May, but I've heard NOTHING since. At this point, I am second guessing whether I want to be a part of it or not. The last thing I want to do is go to an event where I have no idea what I'm supposed to be doing. (Plus, I'd almost rather NOT cosplay on a Sunday...)

So, any news from anyone here?
I would like to at least know reporting times/locations and things like that.

When did you apply?
I applied SOOO EARLY that they probably had many spots open yet.

I'd email the coordinator...

Yuki, if you entered as Vincent you're in it.

This chessmatch is set up AT THE CON, so aside from knowing you'll be in it there's nothing she would have told anyone about yet because they allow signups at the con, so the board is not finalized yet.

I applied yesterday and got a response from her same day, but she only alluded to what costume she wanted me in since I offered six (based on the possibility of being a special for someone else)

Also, the coordinator doesn't have e-mail access today since she's already at the con center. I'd just ask to talk to her when you grab your registration.

Chess went rather well, even though they did a lot of registration At-Con. I was surprised. Everyone who was in it made it incredibly enjoyable--- I only *wish* I hadn't gotten killed off before I even had a chance to MOVE! LOL!! Ohwell. So goes Cosplay Chess. You NEVER know what's going to happen. Like, for instance, Chii busting out a bunch of MGS soldiers as her special attack... XD

Someday, I will live more than 5 minutes into the chess match.
I've been killed off early the first and only two times I've been in the game.

Cosplay Chess was probably my favorite part of the convention. I'm beginning to think I'm going to have to try to get into chess for every con I go to. ^^;; This time I made it until the end of the game- and I died in such a cool way! It was defiantely a blast, and I think I've definately gotten over my case of stage fright for good.

I had lost my voice at the con and my charactrers attack was to sing and pray so I wasn't really supprised at all when I died pretty early on. Oh well, I forgive the red mage. He obviously had a very hard time killing me since I like cried and started reciting "our father" I personally loved when we jumped riku.

I definitely didn't move.
(White King-side Bishop.)
Got taken out by the Red Mage (Black king-side Knight, I believe....)

No big deal though.
One never knows whats going to happen in an improv game like this...
