Characters like Nuriko from Fushigi Yuugi, Sailor Neptune from Sailor Moon, and Ranka from Ouran High School Host Club are perfect examples of characters that qualify to battle for the Feminine side.

Where characters like Armstrong from Full Metal Alchemist, Sailor Uranus from Sailor Moon, and Guts from Berserk are excellent examples of those that would battle for the Masculine side.

Pick your side wisely and donít count anyone out. Who will come out victorious in a battle where the toughest and manliest of characters are pitted against those that seem pretty and dainty yet can still pack a punch. You wonít want to miss it so be sure to come and witness Cosplay Chess 2013!

I'm a little confused about the wording with #5. Is that where the participant uses/comes up with attacks from their source material? For example, if I were to cosplay as Son Goku from the Dragonball series, would this be where I put the Kamehameha Wave? Or is this for something else altogether?

Thanks for taking the time to read and reply.

#5 is where you write out how to will act out killing your opponent. So for Goku this is where you would write out your Kamehameha wave. When you are writing it out be as descriptive as possible. Just filling it out by saying Kamehameha wave. does not give me much information on how you will act it out.
