I am not big into internet things, like social media or even that into youtube..I mainly go on there to listen to music and the occasional watching a tutorial and some news. So I forget all about the response video thing..I didn't know they removed that..I wouldn't have ANY idea what to do for response videos though..
What would you DO in these videos? Like the only response videos I had ever seen where music related..Example of one I saw: one person would play a song on guitar and it'd be incorrect, then the video of the person responding would be the correct way..So I don't even see what you'd do for response videos in cosplaying..
Would this be like a chat thing? like you all respond to each others videos with your own response video? I'm kinda confused becasue wouldn't it be way easier to just chat in a forum at that point?
The main difference between chatting on the forum and chatting in these videos would be that, as I said in the OP, the videos would be in character. You know those videos where cosplay groups do wacky stuff in costume and it's all implied to be the characters doing that stuff? They'll call each other by the characters' names and adopt their habits and stuff? It's like that, in-character. We would be acting, basically.
Aside from that, it'd be pretty open, but I might establish monthly themes or something of the sort. One month could be "Go on an adventure," another could be "Cook something," etc., and people would respond to the initial video playing along with whatever the theme is that month. Of course, you wouldn't have to do things by the t, exactly - if you weren't comfortable cosplaying out in public, for example, you could "go on an adventure" around your house.
We could definitely chat in-character in the videos, responding to each other, but we'd also need to be actually doing something active (like going on an adventure or ballsing around in the kitchen) to make it interesting.
I'm thinking monthly
themes at this point to make it easier on those who need a lot of prep time. There could be a central channel everyone has the password to post to, or we could do "responses" the way I outlined in the OP from our own channels. What do you all think would be best?
