Hello everyone!

Fanime Cosplay Chess 2020's theme for the performance is magic, however, even though it's highly encouraged to cosplay from any fandom with a magic theme, we are not restricting it!

The performance will be announced at a later date and chess pieces should arrive an hour early for last-minute rehearsals before the show.

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 chess masters, 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.

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 signups will be announced at a later date)

There is a mandatory rehearsal on the Friday of Fanime at 7 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 7 PM, to make it easier for everyone)
