Dating thinger!

Yeah, I know how there like six of these threads going around that are all talking about the same thing, so I'll narrow mine down alittle. I'm thinking that it would be fun to go up during cosplay and either do that auction for real, or just for fun and have our friends in the audience shout things out...would anyone else be interested in this? with three months to katsucon I think we could get something going here. but that's just me.....

Haha, I'll be there Friday and Saturday, and I'll gladly host for you if you'd have me! ^_^ (I'm taken so I can't exactly be auctioned off, but I want to help! This is a cool idea! ^_^)

I'll be there, and of course help out. (Yeah I tried to get everyone talking in one thread, but I think it backfired . . .) But, err, don't we have to talk to the staff first?

well, if we did it as a cosplay skit just for the enjoyment of the audience I don't think the staff would have a problem. It's all just for entertainment and no acctual money changes hands. Also, this would allow anyone who is acctually taken to get up there and have fun at this "mock" auction, it would also keep people from getting embarassed from no bids, because it was planned out in the first place....but that's just my two cents...anyone else have a suggestion?

I would love to host this myself, but I think someone needs to E-Mail the Staff with a full plan they could use since this is November.

If enough people convince me...I may just put myself up for Auction....

Oh, okay, yeah if you did it as part of the masquerade - within the time limit for a cosplay skit - that'd be fine. Well it would be wise to check with the masq staff first, just in case they have any problem with that kind of skit but I doubt they would.

BUT, if you wanted it to be an event unto itself, or I don't know, to kill time between other events, that you would have to suggest to the staff.

An auction of cosplayers... sound entertaining.^_^

So, you know how the judges always go and make decisions and the audience sits there being sad and bored for some amount of time? Why not do it then, right after the cosplay before the results are announced?

Gooo Studmaster! Auction yourself off! Show the ladies what they can win!

Haha, I was actually thinking about this last night, and I thought "We should email the staff" and yeah.. we're all on the same track. ^^ It'd be cool if we could make a panel out of it, but I don't think we have the time for that. @_@ A cosplay would work!

More advice on auctions! I totally forgot to include this one... you have to basically stage the first couple (rig them) to get the audience going. Once they get into the swing of things, it'll be fine but everyone needs a bit of a poke to get going.
