RED vs BLUE costumes @ MegaCon'08 Saturday

Granted, there's the big FF vs Nintendo photoshoot going on, but in addition to that; I'd love to try something new and take the whole VERSUS theme one step further... and your involvement is highly welcome! Bring yourself, a friend, their friend, and hell - anyone you met that Saturday at MEGACON to join up for the biggest... most amazing...
RED VERSUS BLUE
...photo opportunity to date at MegaCon!

Here's the details...

» Despite the title, this isn't just limited to the hilarious RoosterTeeth animated series, Red Vs Blue, or even the recently released Team Fortress 2's "Red vs Blu(e)" squads. These are most definitely encouraged as possible costumes! I know a bunch of people planning to go in Team Fortress 2 RvB gear, so the more, the merrier. Who knows, we might even get Chell to bring us a slice of that infamous Aperture Science baked cake.

» In fact... it could be ANY costume, regardless of colouration or style. You could be dressed as Vincent Valentine of FFVII or even Luigi of the Mario Bros for all I care. Even if the character doesn't even bear RED or BLUE at all, you can be part of this...

» ...but if "anyone" can enter, who's side would the cosplayer be on? Would Mario obviously be on Red and someone like Marth be on Blue by default? Well, that would be definitely encouraged! However, for those with a not so blatant colour scheme, you get the option of choosing what side would be appropriate!

» "Wait a minute... if I get to choose, how would sides be even?" Good question, easily answered... I don't 'expect' sides to be completely even. HOWEVER, if the participation numbers for this cosplayer get-together is good enough, we will appropriately even out the sides.

» "Okay, that's fine. But how will participants be marked for either side?" RED and BLUE ribbons/armband/badges. That way, if a non-participating person is cosplaying Knuckles, they won't be mistaken for a participating cosplayer dressed as Vash the Stampede. A sample photo of the RED and BLUE markers will be posted closer to the MegaCon event time. Yes, these badges are FREE with proof of admission to MegaCon. Thus... No MegaCon badge/wristband, no RvB badge. We do want to support the convention afterall, since a lot of hard work has gone into hosting it each year - of which I personally thank them for.

» I mentioned the participation numbers a couple times, but if they turn out better than expected... I do have some surprises in store; ranging from a sponsored Hall Costume Contest with nice prizes for the winners to an actual RvB game. Stay tuned for that and definitely pass on the word.

» That's all the details for now... if you have any relevant questions, comments, or even suggestions; please feel free to comment here, PM, or email me (makiotwist at gmail dot com).

Awesome, the more the merrier.

I just hope the topic title didn't sway people off thinking it was just a HALO gathering(because it's obviously more than that!).

DAMMIT MAKIO QUIT STEALING MY GOOD IDEAS! *cough* I mean having them first. I may have a blue costume for this. It'd be a faerie. Not sure if I will have it finished for Megacon but that's the only one that would really apply for this year.

I'll, um, be pretty obvious, since I'll be a Team Fortress character.

fightstar --- That's actually what's being debated upon right now amongst myself and those helping out. Armbands would be the best option at present, but ribbons or pinned buttons are also being considered. I should have a big update ready no later than this time next month, tops.

Juego --- After seeing your TF2 costumes, I *highly* welcome you aboard. A couple friends and I are set to bring out our TEAM FORTRESS 2 costumes for Megacon Saturday, of which we hope will help enhance the numbers turning out for the RED vs BLUE event. BTW, for those who haven't played TF2 or if you're on the fence about buying THE ORANGE BOX... most places will be selling the PC version of it for $25 on November 23rd/Black Friday.


Also... if anyone has any further comments, suggestions, or constructive input related to the event, don't hesistate to drop a comment here or PM/IM me about it!

Thanks to the (FN) folks on TF2, we've got a big update coming on December 16th for those participating in the RED vs BLUE costume gathering. Topics include:

» The RED vs BLUE insignia, badges, ribbons, and pins
» A list of participating Cosplay.com members, off-website cosplayers, and cosplayer groups
» Photoshoot Locations & Time
» "Capture Points"
» ...and more!!
