Cosplay Chess 2014: Chess League!


Hello one and all! Welcome to the official Cosplay Chess thread for Anime Los Angeles 2014. Please be sure to follow us on facebook at Socal Cosplay Chess

What is Cosplay Chess?
Cosplay Chess is a game in which the cosplayers are used as the pieces for an epic chess match controlled by their Mighty Kings!! The game itself is played out just like a normal chess match. The players will make their moves on a regular chess board and then the Pieces will move to the corresponding locations on a large scale chess board which they'll be standing on. At each confrontation the attacking piece will have a "Battle" with its target. We hope you'll come to watch, or if you think you can meet the call to arms sign up to play!

For Those of you who want to Play as pieces
Below is a link to download the application. Inside are all the rules and information necessary for applying. Please make sure to read them.

The Match-ups
Only those who sign up will play. If the roster is full for the game a backup list will be made. The backup list is decided by us as well. If you are going to be in the game, BE THERE EARLY We wanna make sure all things are managed and covered before the game goes on.

Is this like a Poke'mon League theme?
Anime California plans
Pricilla (Fire Emblem Rekka no Ken) - 10%
Dr. Francis Stein (genderbent Stein from Soul Eater) - 0%
Liza (Pokemon R/S/E) - 100%

2014 Cons: Anime California, Comikaze (maybe), Bent Con (maybe), Nuke the Fridge con.

If enough people submit as Pokémon based characters it will be! Prettysammy and I will most likely be dressed as Genderbent Cheren and Bianca!

I have been dying to join since my first ALA. Haha! But I never knew where to join. Now I know. I have two cosplays that I might be joining as, depending on which I finish first. It will either be the Queen from OFF, or a Harley Quinn ballgown. I'm going big or going home! It looks like the queen will be finished first, however, due to time restraints. Will that do? It's a very elegant dress.
