Information/rules on cosplay and chess pieces
[li]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: 1 sentence should be a vague introduction of your character, followed by the second sentence containing your characters name, and what show/game/fandom they're from. (see examples below)
 [/li][/list]
"The last of his kind, this man travels all of time and space in his blue box that's bigger on the inside. Give it up for the Doctor from BBC's Doctor Who!"
"The hero of the video game of death, he's the beater who wears all black! It's Kirito from Sword Art Online!"

Other Important Notes:

When sending emails, please make sure you properly identify who you are. This is to make communications between you and the hosts much smoother and less confusing.

We are looking for two characters: the 11th or 12th Doctor (from Doctor Who) and Light Yagami (from Death Note)
if you cosplay either of those two characters, please alert the hosts by either commenting on this thread, or sending an email at the address mentioned above, they are both speaking roles and are very important to the event running smoothly.

Those interested in being chess masters: you will have to audition for the part, stay tuned for information on what you'll need to have in your auditions!

Thank you very much for your interest! We look forward to hearing from you!!

SURPRISE!!!

We are still in very much need of cosplayers on our board, so I am SWEETENING THE POT. :D

For those of you who will be performing on our board, I have two lovely prints from artist Jed Henry. (http://thejedhenry.deviantart.com/)

Here are the prints I have up for raffle!

Ashitaka from Princess Mononoke
http://shop.ukiyoeheroes.com/collections/giclee-prints/products/outcast-giclee-print

San from Princess Mononoke
http://shop.ukiyoeheroes.com/collections/giclee-prints/products/wolf-girl-giclee-print

While we will be having a raffle for the audience members, these two prints will only be raffled to staff members and chess board volunteers!

If you would like to participate in the chess match as a cosplay, please email us at fanimecosplaychess@gmail.com with your name, your intended cosplay and what show/game they are from.

May I ask how long the cosplay chess runs for? I'm part of the Masquerade, and I know that contestants have a call time of 5 or 5:30 on Sunday.

This really looks like so much fun!

We will be over by 6 at the latest, but if you need to leave earlier we can "kill you off" in the beginning so you won't miss the Masquerade. Just be sure to email us and we'll add you to the list! :D And its a lot of fun, we had a blast doing it last year and want to keep it going.
