Hello everyone! School's out!

Fanime Cosplay Chess 2019's theme for the performance is school themed, however, even though it's highly encouraged to cosplay from any fandom with a school theme, we are not restricting it!

The performance will be announced as soon as Fanime releases information and as it becomes closer, so bear with us!

Cosplay chess is an immersive, full-scale chess game in which the pieces have come to life and are fighting for their team! It is an exciting new way to enjoy a classic, time-honored game. As we are a performance, sign-ups are required before the convention starts. No need to know anything about chess to participate, just be sure to keep an open mind and be ready to have fun!

There will be raffle tickets for prizes for both chess pieces and chessmasters, which we will announce what they will be!

Chess Pieces
Chess pieces are the bread of our show! They compromise a majority of our members and play as rook, knight, or pawn on the board. Some of them may have speaking parts, however, we will ask first if you are comfortable with it. Characters are paired in the most hilarious of ways for battle!

No auditions are required! Characters are granted on a first come first serve basis, and once we are full we accept reserve characters to fill last minute dropouts. We accept all fandoms and cosplays, however, we ask that they be a published character (NPC characters are ok). All pieces must write a short, 2-4 sentence description of their character to be used when we introduce each piece. Please have in your description the following: The first sentence should be a vague introduction of your character, followed by a second sentence containing your characters name, and what fandom they're from. (see examples below)

"The hero of the video game of death, he's the beater who wears all black! It's Kirito from Sword Art Online!"

Heels are ok so long as they are thick, but stilettos are not allowed as they have the potential to ruin our board.

To sign up as a chess piece, please click:

Chessmasters are the butter of our show! They lead their teams into battle with wit, charm, and stage presence. They have prominent speaking roles and are required to attend at least 2 online rehearsals. We use Discord for all online rehearsals and communication.

To sign up as chessmaster, please click:

There is a mandatory rehearsal on the Friday of Fanime at 8 PM, so please build it into your schedule. This is your time to meet everyone face to face, as well as the chess pieces you will fight so you can create a short, simple fight choreography. If for any reason you cannot attend the meeting, please email us so that we can discuss it. (Previous years, we've had rehearsals at 9 PM, heard everyone's input and decided to change it to 8 PM, to make it easier for everyone)

Would anyone like a Devil May Cry gathering? Only asking because I was hoping that Devil May Cry cosplayers might pop up again due to 5 coming out next year.

I guess I better brush on my old-school knowledge.

Or just watch a lot of pre-2001 anime openings.  :D

Last year we had a three-way tie at Round 8 that progressed to a two-way tie after the Final Round, so it went to a tiebreaker.

Hello everyone! After giving it some thought, I have decided to try and host a Studio Ghibli gathering for 2019! Given that I notice a lot of Ghibli cosplays each year, yet there hasn't really been a gathering. I did try to host an unofficial Day 0 gathering a couple years back, but that kinda flopped, and now that I'll be cosplaying from Ghibli again next year, I thought I would try to host an official gathering this time!!

Note: Fanime will be taking group pictures during the Gathering/Event this year. If you do not want to be included in those pictures please step aside for those photos. By remaining with the group when the pictures are being taken you give your consent to be photographed.

Day: TBA (probably Friday?)
Time: TBA
Location: TBA

Number of Attendees: 1

List of Attendees
Angelx624 - Princess Sheeta(Laputa/Castle in the Sky)

Photo Order
Group Photo
Movies by release date(Nausicaa being first, When Marnie Was There being last)
Non-human characters
Second Group Photo(for anyone who shows up late to the gathering)

This thread will be updated as we get closer to the gathering day! So be sure to check this thread often! ^^

Hi lovely people! I’m planning on cosplaying Utena at Fanime this year and am looking for an Anthy or any Utena cosplayers to cosplay with! A couple or group cosplay would be a dream! ❤️

With registration now open, I wanted to ping this thread as we plan on hosting this again for 2019!  Due to positive feedback we're considering expanding to a second session depending on policy once panel registration opens.

Thank you to all our attendees and contestants from FanimeCon 2018 for sharing a bit of your Saturday morning with us and expanding your vintage anime knowledge.
