Sure, it was easy enough to find; just had to Google "Rumic World."
We now have a Facebook event page, so spam your friends with invites:

I might do one for this, I'm torn between Dr. Nemesis and Arcade. I already have the white suit, it's just about accessories at this point.

For what it's worth, I'm going as Dr. Nemesis, and I don't think we have an Arcade yet, so if you want a variety, I'd say Arcade. That said, Dr. Nemesis is a great character, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with double doctors.
Sunday at 10... unfortunately, that's the same time as the Rumiko Takahashi series gathering, so I won't be able to attend. Next year, though.
We're likely to do this on both Saturday and Sunday, so those who can't make it one day will still have a chance the other
Disclaimer has been added. Fanime is getting closer, so here's a reminder for people to sign up so we can get it set up and get a time. Remember, all are welcome!
Still working out my schedule, but consider me a distinct possibility for Doctor Nemesis from X-Men.
The old thread is pretty far lost, so it's time to start anew! The previous Cosplay Battle events were a blast, and now it's somewhat more official-ish! All are welcome, but those who sign up ahead of time here will have priority in turn order.

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.

Date: Friday, Saturday Sunday
Time: See Gatherings and Events List for Cosplay Game times.
Location: G9 Fri/Sun, G5 Sat

First of all, let me make one thing clear: even though the name is "Cosplay Battle" there will be absolutely no fighting. I repeat, violence will not be tolerated. If anyone is acting in a manner that threatens the safety of the other event participants, they will be asked to leave.

I had to make that absolutely clear before we begin. Now to explain the event itself.

I saw this done several years back at another convention, and had a great time participating, so I brought it to Fanime. So credit for the idea goes to the people who came up with it, although I don't know who you are or when it started.

The basic idea of the event is a tournament-style matchup of cosplayer vs cosplayer in three-pose battles -- three pictures in which the two look like they're fighting, then a "winner" is determined.

The two competitors come up and act like they're in the middle of a battle, freezing in place for pictures. Once this repeats three times, whoever feels they have "lost" will go down, and the winner is determined. Depending on the amount of participants, we may have the winners move on to later rounds, but that's probably unlikely.

Of course, any characters from any series are welcome. You don't have to be from a fighting series, or even be a character who can fight at all. You can be the tiniest character in a comedy series and still take on a super-powerful fighter and win, as long as the poses are right.

Example: Goku (Dragonball Z) vs Chiyo-chan (Azumanga Daioh)
- Goku begins powering up, while Chiyo kicks him in the knee. Freeze for pictures. (Remember, it can look like Chiyo is kicking Goku, but actually hitting the cosplayer is against the rules.)
- Goku fires a Kamehameha, and Chiyo ducks to avoid it. Freeze for pictures.
- Chiyo and Goku charge for one final attack. Freeze for pictures.
- Chiyo-chan wins! Goku lies defeated. Victory pose.
- Goku and Chiyo thank each other for a good, fun match, and the next competitors come up.

Please post if you are interested in joining, if you have any questions, and what days/times would be best for you.

Fanime is getting closer, so it's time to get this stuff active again! Sorry for my inactivity recently, but yeah, Ryoga is still good to go! Sunday around 10 works perfectly for me.
So, with how things are working out, there is still a small chance I'll be able to make it as Hunson Abadeer. I can't say anything for certain until my schedule gets worked out, but I always enjoy some Adventure Time, so fingers crossed.
I vote for right before the Pokemon gathering on Saturday, same as last time. That way I don't have to fit another costume into my schedule, and we'll get the most Pokemon cosplayers that day.

Sent you a friend request and still waiting for a reply. Pics still aren't showing D: Hope I can see them soon since they're probably the only ones I'm going to find online.

Can you message me on FB so I know it's you? Often times when I get friend requests with no mutual friends or info on who they are, I wait until I can figure it out before accepting.
Thank you, everyone who attended the panel! I know monday at 12:00 isn't the best time, and it was made even worse by the fact that the video screening room was showing other Abridged Series at the exact same time right across from us, but I appreciate those of you who did attend.

I've finished editing the abridged one-shot from the panel, and it can be found here:

I loved the idea too :) Hehe means a little more work but as long as I have Robbie or another for help on this I should be fine XD

No worries, Tabby, I'm here and ready to make next year awesome! I've got quite a few friends who cosplay from Rumiko Takahashi series, so it's all good.

Oh, and to those who don't know me, I'm the Ryoga who ended up getting lost and stumbling into gag shots, thanks for letting me join you!
My Facebook pictures are set so only friends or friends of friends can view them. I know this can be inconvenient, but I do have to worry about security. My apologies for those who can't view them, though if you do have an account, feel free to friend me and you'll be able to see them.
Thank you, everyone who attended! I know there was a little location confusion due to the construction, but I hope you all had a good time. I've got some pictures uploaded, though I ran out of memory space, so I couldn't get all of them. You can view what I do have here:

Thank you once again for attending, I hope to see you all next year
Thank you all for participating, I hope you had a good time! We had some great battles this year, and I know I enjoyed seeing them all. You can find pictures that I got around in these albums: and

We'll be doing this again next year, so I hope to see even more fighters then!
It was a pleasure having so many minions at the gathering, I had a great time. You can find pictures I got of the gathering somewhere in here: I hope to see you all again next year!
It was great meeting you guys, I hope you enjoyed it. Hopefully we can get more people next year to an official gathering, since I saw plenty of awesome cosplayers who couldn't make it. Still, it was a pleasure seeing all of you.

Here are the pictures I've got so far: If you can't see them, feel free to send me a friend request. And even if you can, if you were at the gathering, then send one anyways.
It was a pleasure meeting you, you are awesome, good sir.
