Oh!! I was also wondering if I should post my information like Player Name, Costume, blah blah.... (sans theme music, obviously, as its too late for that) even though I am just a potential spot filler? Would that be helpful at all? Or should I just wait until the day and just line up as an extra?

Hi there. I would say just wait until the day and then sign up.

We have no King? Then if you'd like, I'll step up to the plate! "While I may be a king on the board, in reality I...am a god,"

I dont want to be king but if you upgrade someone from the back row to king I will gladly take thier position. The kind is less likely to get combat time than other pieces so I would prefer not being king but being more than a pawn increases survival chances as well.

Very well then. You can have the above's position.

For instance, running with the closest example I am familiar with, if you were cosplaying InuYasha, I would reccomend looking mildly irritated and even getting increasingly irritated as the game went on. Tapping your foot impatiently, even getting so frustrated with being stuck in one place as sitting crosslegged as he does. When you get moved, looking incredulous, like "Finally! Jeez! How long were you planning on leaving your best piece sitting around for?". All action-ready and what not.

So yeah, I would really spend like even just twenty minutes refreshing your familiarity with your character through clips on YouTube, just picking up on how they'd react. Body language is big! And it can really help with self-confidence (at least I find) to get into the mindset of the character as best you can. Then you can react more naturally and also remove yourself slightly from the pressures of being in the spotlight, so to speak, in front of so many people because its not you: its Ayame!

I don't know if that was helpful at all, but hopefully, maybe...? >v<;;

Anime North is so close!!! Ahhhh! Excitement! Also, last minute costuming. I still need to cut my Rufus wig - what am I doing?? xD Hope everyone else is getting along well!
Thanks. I think I'll just be doing some leaves tonight, and figuring it out. Just nervous.. ._.

Looking at the first page there is an empty slot open for a pawn on the order side. Is this still available (since there is only a couple days left until the con) ?

Hey Vessa.

I would really like to participate again this year, but I am supposed to be at a photoshoot at 10 Q_Q I might barely be able to get there by 10:30 though.

D'oh, I come back from helping my parents move and I see that the king spot on the order side was vacated then occupied again. Oh well I'm still happy with my spot
