Title: Welcome to Fanime Cosplay Chess 2018![5 SPOTS LEFT!][PERFORMING SUNDAY @2PM]
Post by: Senpai on October 12, 2017, 01:22:05 PM
Hi there everyone! :)

PERFORMING SUNDAY @2PM

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!

Participate as a chess piece or chessmaster and get the chance to win free prizes! We do a raffle every year, and this year we have a multitude of prizes such as art, signed prints, and gift cards to Joann's and Gamestop!

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 drop outs. 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 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 stilletos are not allowed as they have the potential to ruin our board.

To sign up as a chess piece, please click http://tinyurl.com/yc8ntl9y (http://tinyurl.com/yc8ntl9y)

Chessmasters
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.

Chessmaster sign ups are now closed! Please welcome to the stage Mei from Overwatch and Lucien from Dream Daddy!

Rehearsal
There is a mandatory rehearsal on the Friday of Fanime at 9pm, 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.

Is there a limit to how many characters from a game?  I'm getting a Call Girl together, from Fractured But Whole.

Not at all! One year we had about 6-7 RWBY characters across the board. It made a lot of fun match ups!
