Wcs 2011

Things have stabilized here in Japan somewhat. I'll start up a WCS 2011 information thread for people who have any questions leading up to the summer. Preparations are going ahead and there will be plenty of opportunities to donate to the relief effort for the Tohoku region. You can donate through the WCS top page link that goes here or if you aren't in Japan then it might be more efficient to donate directly to your national Red Cross. You can also send a photo message to the Prayers from Cosplayers site here.

The big events are the Osu Parade on the Saturday which will be August 6th and the Cosplay Stage Performances which is on the Sunday August 7th in Nagoya. I don't have exact times right now but I will update this thread as we go.

The parade sign up usually goes pretty quick and it can be tough to work out for non Japanese speakers so what I'll do is make a list of people who would like to join and I'll do the sign up for you. I'll add names to this top post as we go, if you can't make it just post in the thread and I'll remove your name no time restrictions or anything there.

Its a lot of fun, all events are free and its OK to cosplay in public spaces so if you can make it out let me know and I'll see what I can do to help!

The offer is open to anyone, anywhere who has a cosplay.com account as cosplay.com has supported the event.

Osu Parade Registration (15 person limit)

I would like to participate this year, but it will depend on when it's going to happen. Looks like they should be announcing dates next week.

My friend Zoe and I would like to sign up for the parade, possibly a third person, not sure about them yet.
For cosplay at the event, is it acceptable to cosplay things like Tomb Raider? This is my first experience with any international cosplay event and I don't want to look like an idiot cosplaying a movie/game if that's not really an accepted thing.

Yeah, that's fine Dreamkitty, the parade on Saturday is whatever goes and during the championship on Sunday people are cosplaying all over the Oasis 21 complex in Sakae, Nagoya - Lara Croft is no problem there either.

I'll add you and Zoe to the list and when your third friend confirms just add an entry to this thread.

Of course! The participants in the parade on Saturday August 6th are all in costume(last year was about 500 people), August 7th during the Stage performances and before that you can cosplay throughout the Oasis 21 complex and there is something new this year on August 8th called the Sweet Castle cosplay event.

It looks to be in Inuyama, a little outside of Nagoya but looking at the pictures it would make for a great backdrop depending on the costume.

Okay! I'm pretty sure I can make to this. Sign me up for the parade please. That Castle event is looking pretty good too!

Ok, I definitely will! Yeah, we're trying to form a group of people that want to go from our work right now, a few people have expressed interest but nothing definite yet.
