Otaku Royale....Are You Ready?

What is the Otaku Royale?

Simple. Its a game. For the next three months, three non-okatu will be going head to head against each other to turn themselves from unknowing newbies to fully cosplayed and knowagible convention Otakus.

The Rules
These three guys have 3 months to prepare themselves for Katsucon by watching an anime (or playing a video game), studying one character, and then create a costume. Then, wear it to the con. Sound easy? It gets alot more interesting...

While at the con, they must do a list of things given to them. If they succeed in this, they get points, but if they fail, they loose points. The person with the most points at the end of the con will win the game.

This will be filmed over the three month spanned and at the convention. They will be giving video cameras of their own to show their work as we progress.

*Hosted by the wonderful YuffieLeonhart, and moderated by myself, Oshi, TyJILDown, and Suo18.* If anyone is interested in being a judge for the convention itself, please PM or E-Mail me and I will fill you in. 1 of the 5 judge's spots are already filled. Post here if you wanna help out in any way.

^_^

This seems interesting. It's seems like a cool way to get newbies, like me, into anime.

Attention all People interested in partisapating in the Otaku Royale:

I will post the form for the judges either tonight or tomorrow morning. I can only have 4 to 6 judges, so if you wish to help with that, fill out the sheet and PM it to me ^^

Also, the trailer is about its completion stage. So, as soon as I get my server up and running again, I will post the trailer.
