Volunteer For Cosplay Human Chess!!!

This thread is for the cosplay human chess event we are running at connecticon this year! the chess match itself will be on the main stage, with 32 cosplayers dressed in character. They each take a spot on the board and represent that piece. Two chess players will play a game of chess using the cosplayers as their pieces.

If you are a cosplayer and would like to take part in this event, please email me with your name, the character you are cosplaying, a picture of you in your costume and your contact information to efugee@yahoo.com or use aim, my screen name is efugee

*note: not a masquerade, costumes can be professionally made by others.
*note: since this is a multigenre convention, american characters have just as much of an opportunity to enter as anime characters! We are in fact hopping to get an east vs. west match(think inu yasha and naruto vs. jedis and harry potter)

My friends and I would definitely like to participate. I'd like to secure a spot, but like I said before, I really don't know who I would be cosplaying then.

I think it might be fun to be Aeris. What do you guys think?

Don't worry about playing a non-violent character - sometimes those make for the funniest captures, since they cuddle their opponents to death, or bore them to death, or bribe them off the stage with doughnuts...

To introduce myself, I'm co-running Cosplay Chess at Connecticon this year - I've run a number of cosplay chess matches including the big one at Anime Boston this year, and I'm looking forward to getting to do it at a mixed con (sci-fi and anime). All my past matches have been great fun, so I expect this one to be equally cool.

See you all at the con!
Any questions, feel free to PM.
