There is a good chance I'll participate too as I've always played cosplay chess every year in the game room

I preferably want to be a knight or a bishop.

let me know if your like 90% sure and I'll add ya to this game as well ^^

If it takes off then I'm on board.

But here is a question, is this game going to be like the anime boston cosplay chess show they've had for the last 3 years where this will be highly interactive? or is this just like the fanime game room version like they have every year at fanime?
What place do you specifically have in mind? For Diablo Valley college is a 1 1/2 hour drive from my home. Of course if it's once a month then it's reasonable for me to attend such a thing.

Anyways update when you can.

Hi Kite :)

It's fine that you asked and totally understandable. There are probably others that may of been wondering the same thing.

The director of this project said it should cost to this amount because he made the cosplay before, but he wants to improve it to be a higher quality for the masquerade. I personally do not know the fine details of this, but this amount was his estimate based on the last time he did it. Being a money cautious person myself, I understand that $75 may seem a lot. I appreciate your suggestions and I will bring them up to the director in hopes to make the costs lower.

Believe me, we are not trying to cheat anyone. The director wants to do this because he really wanted to do this and part as a dedication for a friend who has passed away recently. We are determined to deliver and give a wonderful entry. The last thing we would ever want to do is deceive anyone for something we believe in putting heart into it.

I hope I was able to clarify, even though I do not know every detail. If you have anymore questions, do not hesitate to ask. I appreciate your interests and concerns. I find it quite helpful as a newer cosplay group. :)

Then here's a suggestion, would you put up a list to who's left that you need. I think that would help show what positions you still need to be filled.

In the past when I made props for people, I usually gave a form of an 'insurance policy' to show people I could not cheat them. In my particular case, I had a physical address they could go to in order for them to observe the progress of there project. So what would you suggest as an 'insurance policy' aside faith alone?

But for the most part I am interested and I live around the east side being San Jose, CA. Is it possible to meet in person?
May I kindly ask the total cost of supplies?

$75 dollars does seem a bit steep for a cosplay. Times that by 8, that's a total of 600 hundred dollars.

Thinking about it, I'm curious what kind of fabric you're using with the addition to the prop weapons. If you buy fabric from a Vietnamese cloth store, they are generally a better deal in relation to other stores like Walmart, Hancock, Beverly, Jo'Ann, and etc. Looking at your props, what are they going to be made out of to which leads to the question of how sturdy is it going to be? Paper mache is always the cheapest route with the addition of foam to which cardboard and paper are practically free. High grade sucrose flower and foam roughly ten to twenty dollars total just to make one prop weapon give or take. But it also goes into how sophisticated these weapons are going to be to which is there going to be a technological aspect to it which would roughly cost around ten dollars since best buy, Fry's electronics, and Radio Shack sells in bulk. There's a lot to ask but these are more or less the things I'm curious about for now.

Additionally I do apologize if this comes off as rather rude, but what guarantee is there you're not going to cheat anyone? As of late there have been quite a handful of unscrupulous characters roaming the net who have been cheating people out of money in exchange for nothing or not what they promised.

Pawn: Move up to one or two spaces forward or backward. Diagonal only to capture another piece. IF a pawn reaches the enemy side, it can become another piece like a knight.

Queen: Moves in all directions, even diagonal.

So just remember this and you should be fine. =)
Hope this helped.

Mostly correct, but pawns can't move backwards and they can only move two spaces up once from where they started on the board.

And the queen can do every move but the 'L'

Anyways I wouldn't mind participating if this takes off.
I was planning to build the plasma cutter from Dead Space. I planned on building in LED's to simulate the shooting effect.

But in relation to your gun prop policy, I was uncertain how to proceed.

It obviously isn't real, it doesn't shoot anything but light, and I don't think it's a danger to anyone. So is there anything else I need to take into consideration?
Also if anyone needs assistance in building the back harnesses, helmets, or plasma cutters I can help with the wiring work and LED installation.
BTW, there are a lot of RIG designs. So have fun with that.
Since I haven't seen a dead space gathering I figured I'd give it a shot. Plus I'd think it would be pretty awesome to see a bunch of people dressed in RIGs having a shot out against necromorphs/zombies. Also, you don't have to be a character to be in a RIG. Nor any character to which you can have a pulse weapon since there are a lot of characters in the game that were like that.

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: TBD
Time: TBD

List of attending:
Gabe Weller (patrol RIG) - Kite
Medical Officer - RiotKitty (maybe)

Additional information:
If anyone wants to do any additional events then I'm open to suggestions.
 I was curious how does one start a group?

I decided on a certain cosplay next year and I really wanted to create a group for it. But I'm uncertain in how to create it. Any tips or advice?
 I do have to agree with some of the complaints made here.

There is this one thing, but I'm bot sure how to describe it.

If in my crude attempt I would describe it as the energy the con-goers were giving off. Two or three conventions ago, the energy felt spectacular. But last year and this year, well the energy seemed kind of dwindled. But of course it could have just been me. However this was just a thought I had.
Alright, I have no choice but to bow out now.

See you all later 2 A.M.ers.
My god, it's really gone
 3 is my limit too. Got to bow out by then.
Don't strain yourself doc.
