APH World Cosplay Summit [Panel Discussion and Participation ONLY, Please.]

So the first thread was getting a bit cluttered. Time for America to be the Hero, and do a little shed cleaning!

This thread is for discussion of the Peace Summit Panel, and interest in participating in it, ONLY. For general APH cosplay discussion, please go here: http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=195171

ALRIGHT EVERYONE! LET'S GET DOWN TO BUSINESS TO SOLVE THE WORLD'S PROBLEMS. And I, America, have the PERFECT solution! It's fool proof! And I need all of you to be my support! I'll be the hero! Who's with me?!

America wants YOU, my fellow countries, to participate in a World Peace Summit! Invite all your people to come observe what we nations do best! Solve issues! (Or actually, it's more like bicker and argue and throw things at communists.)

So, in order to attend/be a part of the historical occasion, here is the vital information:

The panel is being held Friday evening at 8 PM.

We are looking for only ONE of each country. Any country not listed is free game, any country listed in black may or may not be eventually up for grabs. See information below.

If your name is already on the list below, please send a PM to TrannyMess or myself with this information, or post it in a reply to this thread.

User Name:
Country and Version:
Issue to bring for discussion (Must be relevant to your country.):
Entrance/Theme song (Again, must be relevant to your country):

You will need to bring a name tag to the summit. This could be something as simple as a piece of paper folded over with your country's name (country, not human) written.

If you would like to be part of the summit and your country has not been accepted as part of the summit yet, please respond in the following format:

If your character has already been taken, please apply for an understudy in case something doesn't work out.

THERE IS A DRESS CODE FOR PARTICPANTS.
You will need to be doing some form of formal outfit to take part in the summit. Military uniforms, police uniforms, and suits are allowed. Street clothes are not. This is supposed to be a mock peace summit. This does not apply to the audience.

DEAD LINE FOR NEW CHARACTERS WILL BE SOMETIME IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS. PLEASE BE THINKING! Those listed in BLACK need to confirm.

Just going to do a final double check and ask if the toga can count as formal wear. It was definitely more formal than the tunic alone. Plus, my toga is kind of like a divine toga trabea, more or less, which was reserved only for the gods, so...

This is just in case I can't get my armor done in time, which I know would be more obvious better suited for the formal requirement (and the way the economy's going, it seems to be the case.)

For Rome, yes. He doesn't really have anything quite formal but I would consider his attire formal for the time period. I really just said "formal" because I don't want people showing up in street clothing versions of their characters.

So, basically, wear what your character would wear to a world summit. I can't think of any other characters that would have the same issue as Rome, but if you're not sure, just check with me.

Thanks for asking though! <3

this sounds awesome!! though I can't go to Katsucon I would have definitely signed up as Turkey or Cyprus ^^;

I hope you guys take a lot of photos/video! I'd really love to see this live but unfortunately can't travel.. What are the issues on the floor?

I don't mean to intrude or presume, (but I only read the last 5 pages of the first hetalia thread... and) do you guys want/need procedural help ala Mock UN style? :3 I was the moderator for the Hetalia Mock UN Debate in Los Angeles, and I'd be happy to forward or explain some procedure resources or give more open-ended conference topics that need no actual research but are fun and relevant... (though it's mostly at http://sites.google.com/site/hetalia...mple-procedure )

I understand if you guy just want to have a free-for all debate as well, but since you have panel heads, I thought you may want to look into it?

Great idea on the Dress Code too! I support 100% (but then again that's because I'm a MUN-nerd.. ^^; )

Thanks for the information! I'll check the site out. My History professor from my freshman year actually said he would love to help as well. I sent him Hetalia to watch. He was amused.

As far as the topics go, we are having each person in the panel select a topic that goes along with their country. We're not using all of them, but it will show us that each person did some research and is somewhat knowledgeable about it. We will probably have a few general topics as well.

I'll probably post a tentative agenda soon.

The Official Listing of Characters

Edit:
UPDATED LIST!!!!!!


Also, I wanted to clear things up even though I felt that they were well explained and clearly stated. You are not confirmed until ALL of your information is in. This means your song, topic, and confirmation that you will be there. If these are not in, your character is not confirmed and your spot will be reopened for anyone else to claim.

On the same note, if you claim a character, you will have three days to get all of your information in. Please keep this in mind.

As far as topics go, we do have some guidelines. It must deal with your country. It can not be potentially controversial and, thus, problem causing. We must be able to tell you either did some research on your country or are familiar with it. If you are going to be representing that country, you should know at least something about it.

Please note this will be a semi-scripted panel (it will have an agenda and moderator). If you feel that you will not be able to remain somewhat "professional" during the panel, this may not be the best panel for you to take part in. We will have fun. We just do not want chaos.

First post again updated to mirror TrannyMess's list (Honestly, it'd be better if we kept all of that confined to the first post, due to what happened last time.)

Sadly, Kurt's not going to be able to make it. And it's kinda funny. Because I think he was actually looking forward to it.

And I was seriously contemplating changing countries, but Tranny threatened me with her hockey stick.

If England's still in need of a topic, BBC did a series of stories on London protests against lap dance clubs and and a few more concerning the no-contact rule being violated XD *cough* Totally political.

I haven't gotten a hold of my mansla- I mean my Germany yet but he'll probably do it if asked *manic laughter* So if anyone's on the fence about it, do iiiiiiiit!

Still crossing my fingers for Russia, but if not I'm up for Austria or... ... ... Norway? >>;
