Title: 2012 Cosplay Battle Event
Post by: Eliteslayer on July 08, 2009, 02:28:55 PM
After the 2010 and 2011 Cosplay Battles were a fun success, it's time to change the thread for 2012! All are welcome, but those who sign up ahead of time here or on cosplay.com will have priority in turn order.

Date: Saturday & Sunday
Time: Sat: 2:30
Sun: 12:30
Location: Front Mariott Side

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 a few years back at another convention, and had a great time participating, so I thought I'd bring 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.

(To any Fanime staff: If there is anything about this event that needs changing, please let me know, but rest assured that this is entirely safe. I can understand if calling it "Cosplay Battle" is worrying, but as I've stated many times, it's all posing, there is no actual fighting.)

Sounds like fun.  Depending on the day and what my final cosplays are I'd definately be interested. 
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!

sounds quite silly and fun might just look into it of course if it isn't complicating the schedule
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: Eliteslayer on July 10, 2009, 01:45:12 PM
Given that the date and time is still undetermined, you guys can feel free to let me know what times are good for you. Of course, since we don't know when a lot of things are, it'll take a while before we can find a time that is good for everyone, but time is on my side.

Also, if anyone who signs up here has to leave early, they can let me know ahead of time and we'll have them go early on. For now, thank you both for your interest.

Sounds interesting!  I'm keeping my eye on this. ;D
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: Eliteslayer on July 23, 2009, 12:40:11 AM
hey AIZEN! maybe let me win a round eh hows that sound?

If you want to win, you'll have to work for it. Or be paired up against someone who doesn't mind losing. Or at least not be fooled by absolute hypnosis (bwahaha). Tho' since the day still isn't decided, it's possible that you'll just have to survive long enough to write someone's name in the Death Note. After all, I don't doubt that Kyoya carries one around.

And to everyone, thanks for your enthusiasm. Sounds like everyone's pretty clear on the rules, since there've been no questions, which is good. There's still a lot of time until next Fanime (which means we're gonna have to keep this thread alive for a long time, so please keep posting) so we won't have the time/day decided on until people actually know when works for them, nor will sign-ups begin, but please keep me updated on what times seem to be the best.
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: BunofGovt on July 23, 2009, 09:12:36 PM
I didn't see it mentioned, but if your cosplay includes a weapon or tool or device, would you be allowed to pose with it? 

And the poses do not have to be at a distance, but can be actually touching, e.g., Chiyo has Goku in a headlock?
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: Eliteslayer on July 23, 2009, 09:47:24 PM
You would be allowed to pose with it, just so long as it's not used in any way that could harm the other cosplayers. Basically, aim where they're blocking, and even then, be careful. (Gotta make sure no one gets hurt, or else not only will there be no cosplay battle the year after, but I fear for my attendance at 2011.) The prop policy should ensure that the props are all safe, but even then, it's posing, so think of it as setting up for any other pose.

Same goes for actually touching. You can plant your fist in the other guy's stomach as long as you're not actually punching, and as long as both parties are okay with it. So Chiyo can have Goku in a headlock as long as it only looks like he's trapped in it, ie. she's not really choking him, and Goku is okay with being in a headlock.

Good questions, thank you for asking.

eh i knew the rules aizen i was only kidding, besides dont you think itd be funny for aizen to lose to hitsugaya once?
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: Eliteslayer on July 24, 2009, 10:14:27 AM
I know, and I was replying in an equally kidding manner, hence my joke about Aizen's absolute hypnosis. But yeah, it would be funny... "Now as he attempts to stab me, I'll just make an illusion so it appears like-" *stab* "Ah crud, I shouldn't have spent so long explaining what it was I was about to do."
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: ruby19_4 on July 26, 2009, 10:45:44 PM
Lets just make an exciting cosplay battle. Gr.... Im still think which cosplay to do. :(
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: Eliteslayer on August 31, 2009, 05:31:33 PM
Okay, brief update, gonna run this by everyone to see if it makes sense and sounds fair.

Matchups will be decided by order of signing up. First come, first serve, and when you're up, you can chose your opponent or just face the next person on the list. However, if you chose your opponent, it cannot be someone from the same series as you unless they're characters who never have and never will fight.

I figure that this way we can get the most interesting matchups while still allowing people to have freedom in choosing who to face.

The exception is if you've worked out some epic fight poses with a friend ahead of time. If that's the case, then let me know, and I'll make sure you two get to face each other.

Does all this sound agreeable? I don't want to be especially restricting, but I want to be fair to the people that signed up early, and I want the matches to be unique and interesting.
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: Ryo_Hellsing on September 01, 2009, 11:04:08 PM
It definitely sounds fun and I do like the idea on the first come first serve along with the not fighting the same series character/ someone they would never fight. I will definitely keep my eye on this thread  :)
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: Eliteslayer on October 11, 2009, 11:23:10 AM
Alright, now that some more time has passed and some of the big gatherings are getting times and places set, I'd like to know what times and days people would prefer.

Logically, we'd have the most people on Days 2 and 3, and that's also when the big cosplay gatherings tend to be. So I want it to be at a time when those gatherings are over so we can catch cosplayers and photographers who are still looking for something to do once the epic scale gatherings are over.

Of course, many gatherings don't have a set time yet, which makes sense considering there's still many, many months to go, but at least the days are. So if there's a costume you know you're going to be wearing on one day that you want to use at this, then let me know what day that is.
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!

Sweet. If I don't have to another gathering at that time then I would be willing to attend.

I'm glad to see so many people are interested in this! I'm thinking we'll get some interesting match-ups, from the looks of it. Still a long time to go until Fanime, but I'm already looking forward to this.

Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: Rodney_Pheonix on October 29, 2009, 12:40:06 AM
I'm interested in this as well.

Hmm... now the question is which cosplay?...Oishi? Fremen? Snake? Aizen? L4D hunter? My latest idea as an Anglo-Sinno trooper/or/officer (or possibly a Browncoat...)

Or I could do a bit more work on my Turk costume.... or finish work on my pneumatic marshmallow sniper and bring that (minus crucial equipment) as a Fallout wastelander...decisions....save the world.. stay fuzzy....
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!

Post by: Eliteslayer on November 14, 2009, 05:14:34 PM
Again, awesome to see so many people interested. I want to keep this thread alive, so just throwing a question out there:

What costumes, for those of you who know what costumes you'll be bringing, are you planning on using for this? Of course, if they're costumes you also plan on wearing at a gathering, then I'll try to have this on the same day, so you don't have to change quickly to get to it. (But at a different time, of course, since it's hard to be at a gathering and the cosplay battle at the same time.)
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: Rodney_Pheonix on November 14, 2009, 10:46:28 PM
I've decided.

Fallout Wastelander.

Provided it's not close to the time of the valve gathering.
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: BrightHeart76 on November 14, 2009, 11:54:59 PM
Depends on the day really.  If you do this Sunday, I'll be Tsunade (Naruto).  If you do it Saturday (and I lose the weight I'm trying to lose) I'll probably be Nuriko (Fushigi Yuugi).  My only other cosplay is Sophie (Howl's Moving Castle) and all I could really do would be to hold out Calcifer...no much going to happen there.
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: Eliteslayer on November 15, 2009, 12:40:43 AM
Hehe, evil Sophie beats people up. I can so see that. Throws Calcifer at people, then starts beating them up with a broom while they burn... evil Sophie is starting to scare me. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v149/Eliteslayer/poster71977658.jpg

Sounds like some pretty cool costumes so far; I'm really looking forward to this! Still a lot of time until Fanime, but I'll do my best to make sure this event will be fun for all of you.
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: Otaking007 on November 15, 2009, 12:06:20 PM
I'm down for this as well, just need to know a day to figure out which costume I'm going to do.

Post by: Eliteslayer on January 12, 2010, 11:32:27 AM
Always good to see more people expressing interest. As gathering threads are discussing days and times, we'll be able to figure out when the best time for this will be as well. As none/few of you have said any days you'll definitely be able to or not be able to make it, I'll mostly be going off what time fits in with the general gathering schedules best, but if anyone has any specific times they'd prefer, or just a general idea of what day or early/late time slot it should be, now's the time to speak up.
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!

Post by: Neo-Zaku on January 18, 2010, 07:35:07 PM
Keep in mind peasants that any unique weapons wielded by any heroes at this gathering are rightly my property and that you are all merely holding them since my Gates of Babylon seems to be having a technical error. Thus if Gilgamesh, King of Heroes, demands to make use of your weapon you shall provide it gladly.

(The above was in character humor and should not be taken seriously. Though Gilgamesh with random weapons from other series would be fun for the battle pics. :P)
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!

Lol, sounds like fun! xD I'll join in if I don't have anything else to do. ^^

If you want to use Gates of Babylon, I'll allow anyone who wants to lend their weapons for the picture. Only for those who are willing, logically. Of course, if an Archer cosplayer comes along and uses Unlimited Blade Works, the same will apply.

Post by: Neo-Zaku on January 19, 2010, 12:01:33 PM
In fact it would be funny to photoshop a pic of all the weapons at the gathering floating in mid air behind me while some unfortunate opponent gets "Gates of Babylowned!" (Blame the internet for the joke. :P)
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: Neo-Zaku on February 10, 2010, 12:01:18 AM
Let's see if we can get some matches lined up ahead of time so we can make best use of our gatehring time. So I will submit my name as an open challenger and my game taunt. (Every fighting character has one :P)

Player 1- Gilgamesh "Mongrel dog. You think you are worthy enough to face me?"

Post by: Eliteslayer on February 10, 2010, 10:38:30 AM
Don't worry, the official signups will be starting soon, and the fights will be ordered according to the signup order. First come, first serve. That way we save time on the organization and we can get those who dedicatedly follow the thread their fights earlier. Just gotta figure out how to fit this in to the gathering schedule best and I'll try to reserve the time slot and begin the signups.

I'm still waiting to find out when exactly the big gatherings will be, so I can fit it into my schedule without interfering with them, plus the big event thing B posted about. As for the where, I figure outside by the fountains, like any other gathering, will probably be the best spot for it.

Well, Saturday's a busy day for me, with the Masquerade and two gatherings(maybe three, yikes!) so I dunno, maybe it can be Sunday or Monday. xD Or Friday..... xP
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: artisticpsyco on March 01, 2010, 05:49:34 PM
Staurday -is- quite a busy day ^-^; But personally, I think I should be able to make this even if it is that day. Having it be on Sunday or Friday might be a good idea if a lot of people would be unable to come on Sat. c:
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: Eliteslayer on March 01, 2010, 07:21:44 PM
I've been leaning more towards sunday, anyways, so that's probably when it'll be. I know the Naruto gathering is on that day, so this will probably be set after that one.

Oh yay! ^_^ if it's before 3 on Sunday I'll be able to come as Lenali from D. Gray Man! -excited-

Post by: Angelx624 on March 05, 2010, 11:44:44 PM
Excellent!! ^_^ I'm gonna be attending the Lolita gathering on that day. :) But I should be able to make it to this one, too. ;) Might be in my Bunny Lolita outfit, or I may change into another one of my costumes...... we shall see! ^^; Cause just bunny lolita isn't exciting enough for a cosplay battle. xP But dam, if only I was making a keyblade for Kairi. >w< I may try to make one...... :D

Ok, I think I'll do Kairi for the cosplay battle. XD Hope to make a keyblade! ^_^ And my taunt phrase will be, "I will protect Sora, no matter who stands in my way!" :3

Not sure I'll attend, Sunday I plan on cosplaying Stein since Friday and Saturday kind of require me to cosplay from 5th Element and BRS (since I have a meet up on Friday and can't be arsed to switch out of Stein for Friday... Too hard to switch back and forth with that cosplay). That being said I may or may not attend on Sunday... I really don't know very good poses for Stein. I'll think on it though.

Post by: Eliteslayer on March 27, 2010, 09:58:30 AM
Okay, I have two announcements.

First, for the time and date! How does Sunday at 2 PM sound to everyone? It's still tentative, since there are a few gatherings without an official time posted, and I may have to change it according to my schedule and everyone else's, but at the moment this seems a good time.

Secondly, now that we're getting this worked out, OFFICIAL SIGN-UPS ARE BEGINNING NOW! I'll make an official list on the first post. Signing up is not necessary to attend, but highly recommended. The order you sign up in will affect the fight order, so the sooner you sign up, the quicker you can have your battle.

Post with your name and character, and I'll add you to the list. If there are two characters from the same series in a row, then I'll have to slip in someone from another series in-between them, but if you have a friend you wish to have your cosplay battle with, please include that in your post and I'll make sure you two are matched up.

Thank you, everyone who posted, I'm glad to see so many people are looking forward to this event. So let's make it the best Cosplay Battle we can!

I plan to come as Eve from Black Cat or Alice from Heart no Kuni no Alice^^

Post by: Eliteslayer on April 17, 2010, 06:07:39 PM
Alright, I have sent in the registration, and we've had our location set to the front Hilton side of the convention center lobby. So it's not in the main courtyard, but just to the side; it's the area with plenty of trees, and BSapphire tells me that there's a big spot there perfect for the battle, and another to the side for people waiting for their turn. I've seen some great photos taken at that spot before, so it should be a great location.

@ jobiberry: Considering the event's at 2:00, I don't think it'll conflict with the concert, unless you plan on getting in line reaaaally early. Do you want me to put you down on the list as Eve or Alice?

Post by: heeroyuy135 on April 21, 2010, 01:40:47 PM
Are the match-ups determined by signing up order or are we going to redraw match-ups?
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: Eliteslayer on April 21, 2010, 02:03:32 PM
The match-order is decided by first-come, first-serve. That is to say, those who sign up first get first pick. You can either chose your opponent from the competitors, or fight the next person in line.

For instance, Heero, you're first on the list, so when we begin, you can select any competitor to fight. However, if you don't have any preference, you'll fight Neo-Zaku, who's second on the list. If you chose to fight him, then the next person to chose will be chococlatte, since you and NZ have had your fight. If you chose to fight someone else, then Neo-Zaku can either fight chococlatte or chose someone else.

Make sense?

This sounds like so much fun! Depending on how long the CLAMP gathering goes, I think I'll come! But again, that depends on if the CLAMP gathering ends by two (which is probably unlikely, come to think of it). And if I did come, I don't know if I'd show up as Rock Lee or Cardcaptor Sakura. That's a really hard one. Hmm... although, if I want to show up as Lee, I'd have to change first...

Hmm...

Hello! I would love to join, depending on the time! I was hoping to be Kasumi from D.O.A but that will be Friday, and I will be Sailor Mercury for Sunday, but I might have time to do a switch, if I am welcomed? I would very much like to join! Thank you1
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: Eliteslayer on May 07, 2010, 05:10:40 PM
@ Eeri-chan: You could fight as Sakura as well, I don't think anyone would mind getting turned into a card and captured by her. If you can't decide, of course, you can always join in the day of without being added to the list here first.

@ MissPanda: Everyone's welcome, so feel free to join! Should I put you down as one or the other now, or just leave it open for either costume?
Title: Re: Cosplay Battle! Ready... Pose!
Post by: MissPanda on May 08, 2010, 04:20:49 PM
If you could please leave it open that would be kind. This is my first year and I know I will be very overwhelmed >.< but I do like the idea of the duels, lots of fun! I believe both can work for duels, I must make sure to bring bubbles if I choose to stay as Sailor Mercury ^_^ Thank you very much!

@ Midnight: Ten days, and so much anticipation. Fortunately, ten days is enough to panic about not being able to get everything done on time while still having enough time to get everything done. Which reminds me... *Panics*

@ Miko: Yep, Sunday seemed to be the best day, if just because Saturday I have way too many things to get to as it is. Plus, it's right before the Shonen Jump gathering, so we can grab some Jump cosplayers who arrive early and have enough time for people cosplaying from Jump series to get to the gathering once the fight's over.

@ Sima: Alrighty, you have been added.

In response to the mentionings of glomps...

lol. the glomps of death. I've encountered a few crazy glompers in my day as a moggle. It's quite scary when you see them running from across the hall and you know you can't run away fast enough becuase of the sight restictions of the moogle head. I've actually run into a post before trying to escape a glomp and ended up runnign into the poll, then bounceing back, then getting pounced on on the other side by a crazy glomper. lol.

I've been jumped on, sanwiched between two people, surrounded by a mimi mob, and have been taken captive by wooden-katana/nerf-gun/plastic-dagger/light saber-point on many occations by the glomp masters of prior cons.

This moogle fears the glomps. lol.

Speaking of glomps of death, here's one people are constantly surprised I survived, much less was able to stand against. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ggg6zsUUdUg (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ggg6zsUUdUg)
This was three years ago with me as Sephiroth.

@ Hara, Hibari_Fangirl, &*rei*: Since you're all saying you might be able to come, should I put you on the sign-up list or just play it by ear? People can show up and join the battles without being signed up ahead of time and just sign up at the time of, but the sign-up list determines the orders of the battles.

@ Miko: Yikes! Poor Moogle can't get a break.

@ Sima: She got a running start and you still managed to stay standing, well done. Nice Sephiroth costume too, BTW.

I can't think of any times I've been taken by a surprise glomping offhand; the few times I have been glomped the glompers have asked first. I count myself lucky for that, but I fear that one day I shall hear the sound of running, followed by a high-pitched cry of my character's name, only to feel a sudden impact from behind and my spine snapping from the force of it.

Feel lucky for being asked....it's so scary being a Pocky box sometimes that I often almost don't wear it. EVERYONE glomps you, and NOBODY asks. Plus they squish the box not even caring or realizing that the box is only cheap cardboard. T^T So scary...

Post by: Eliteslayer on May 24, 2010, 11:02:36 AM
@ Somebody: I plan on demonstrating how the fights go as I explain the rules at the beginning, so as long as you show up on time you'll get a chance to see what it'll look like, and have time to practice to the side until your fight's up. I'll also be there before 2:00, so I can help you out if you show up before it begins.

@ Foxberry: Bummer. Oh well, enjoy your photoshoot!

@ Crewd: Alright, I'll add you to the list.

@ kohana: I'm not familiar with the Ninja Game, but sure, why not. Light contact is allowed for the poses, just not actually striking the other guy or getting them in any sort of locks without their consent.

That all depends on who you make cry. Normally we'd call the match off, console the person you made cry, and shoot evil glares at you. If it's a grown man who looks like he could crush you with his bare hands, though, then we might give you props. If it's a little girl, I'll punch you in the face.

Guess you've all made a liar of me, because I've added all of you to the sign-up list. Still, anyone who posts to sign up should still check in with me at the battles to make sure I've got you on the list, and so I know you're there. Almost at 30 people, glad to see so many people are interested in these battles!

Since each battle will take 2 people, that's 15 battles, plus any more who show up at-con. That would give us about 3-4 minutes per battle to finish by 3, but I don't think we'll need that long for each match anyways.

Well, I'd say we had a pretty decent turnout. Glad to see all the awesome costumes you guys had, and I hope everyone who attended had fun. Can't wait to see pics from it, you all had some awesome battles!

For those who missed it, don't worry, we'll be doing this again next year. I know the location this year was a little hard to find, but we'll see where we end up next year.

You better Eliteslayer! I want to do it next year! :) Just change your first post subject line to include 2011 and then what ever needs to be cleaned to fit 2011 on the first post and I will add you to the new 2011 URL list with my Jump Checkers!

Thanks for doing this event! AWESOME!!!

@ Eliteslayer: Could we possibly do this two days? Like Friday and Sunday? I want to see if Cosplayer Dodgeball went as well and try to have it Friday and Saturday. Then with Chess on Saturday or Sunday and Checkers on Sunday it will make for one cool event every day for the cospeeps! :)

Post by: Eliteslayer on June 02, 2010, 02:54:32 PM
When I'd be able to host them depends on how my schedule looks, but I think that might very well be doable. And even if one of them gets scheduled for a time I can't make it, someone else can host/referee for it in my absence. If two days sounds good to everyone, then I see no reason not to.

Okay, bumping this thread up a little, since I've been mulling an idea around.

Who wants a little background music for the fights? I've got the battle theme from Final Fantasy 7, and a soundtrack from Guilty Gear. What else would you recommend? (Also, my speakers aren't that great, so if someone could volunteer to bring better speakers, that would be most appreciated.)

Alright, glad to see so many people already want to join in next year! Still too soon to decide on a time, since we've all got gatherings we'll want to work around, but since we'll be doing this two days, even if you miss one, there's always the other.

Okay, another bump to reactivate this thread: since it'll be a two-day event, I figure Saturday and Sunday would be the natural days for it. Would you guys prefer earlier in the day, later in the day, or midday? There'll be a lot of gatherings to compete with, so I'm thinking later in the day would probably be best, but I'm open to suggestions.
Title: Re: 2011 Cosplay Battle Event
Post by: Eliteslayer on January 17, 2011, 06:58:16 PM
Okay, we've got to get a time decided on soon, so I'm thinking Saturday and Sunday at 3:30. Does this work for everyone, or is there another time that would be better? Let me know as soon as possible whether or not it works.

those two times are perfect! (one day in one costume and one in the other) that way theres plenty of time til the special events at night too and the gatherings are usually round 12 (or w/e i dont know XD)

_plus plus my bf (hee hee! e w e) will be balthier from ff12 and kite from .//hack so im forcing him to do this too >3~ (i shall beat him with a sexy beam!)
and background music would be epic get a smattering, once you figure out what everyones dressing as, of epic songs from some of the more well known anime or games or whatnot that people are dressing as in the lineup : D

Well, I'm waiting for more gatherings to get their times posted so we can find one that won't clash with too many, and since it'll be on two days, even if you can't make it to one, odds are the next day will be better.

This sounds like a great time (looking at the list right now) and I would really like to get this event listed. I hope you plan to run this for 1 hr each day. I see that a few people may have to be in either the first 1/2 hour or the second 1/2 hour, but it should accommodate people pretty well.

Will this still be located at FHS? PM me parts 1 & 2 and let's get you posted :) I can't wait to see this and hopefully take photos!

Hey elite, my name is Sam and I am running the social gaming section of Fanime. It sounds like this would fit into my type of games. If your looking for a space and do not have one, I can put that into our schedule. It sounds like there is alot of buzz about this game. Hit me up when you get the chance.

I've got you down for both days :) *So excited!* Saw the photos from last year and they were AWESOME!
@ Eliteslayer: Now I plan on participating this year (to much going on last year) and I would have to say Saturday will be the best day for me to participate. I should still be in Quistis from FFVIII (pending I get her done in time :) Sunday I'm a maybe since I will be in Kuronue from YYH and still at the Jump gathering, but if your still going (and I get my wings off *LOL) I will come over for that day too. btw.. no bamboo attacks on Kuronue, I'm still picking the splinters out from when Youko and I "borrowed" that mirror and we got attacked... some friend... damn demon left me there bleeding from the bamboo stakes... *LOL XD
Oh, but I did find my pendant :)

@ Sam: I think we're good space-wise, since it's just been signed up as an event, but thanks nonetheless. If you'd like to include this on the social gaming schedule as well as the cosplay event schedule, though, that would be great, as any extra press we can get for this event is always appreciated.

@ B: Excellent! Looks like it might clash with the latter half of the Jump gathering, but I'll still be able to make it to that for the first half.

Yeah, a lot of the people I've talked to that go as fighting game/general fighting characters seem to want to stick with their genres and gatherings... I'm willing to branch out, I'll do a pose down with a Loli Maid if I have to. ;)

EDIT: Just checked the masquerade schedule for Sunday, I don't need to go to that til 5, so as long as the Kuroshitsuji gathering and tea don't collide with the cosplay battle then I shall be able to make it no problem~ ^^

Post by: Eliteslayer on April 14, 2011, 09:57:06 PM
@B: I'm pretty sure that would conflict with the Avatar: TLA gathering that I'm going to. I think if we just push it back a half hour, from 3-4, I can host this, then rush off just a little bit early to check in to my panel, and since it's off to the side, it won't conflict with the other two gatherings at that time.

A lot of my stuff is crossplay usually...if that is even okay.
I might stop on by to watch or participate.
Not really decided yet, but it seems like fun~
Hope I can work around a bunch of other gatherings too.

Post by: Chen-Yakumo on April 24, 2011, 05:41:56 PM
Okay, I have two announcements.

First, for the time and date! How does Sunday at 2 PM sound to everyone? It's still tentative, since there are a few gatherings without an official time posted, and I may have to change it according to my schedule and everyone else's, but at the moment this seems a good time.

Secondly, now that we're getting this worked out, OFFICIAL SIGN-UPS ARE BEGINNING NOW! I'll make an official list on the first post. Signing up is not necessary to attend, but highly recommended. The order you sign up in will affect the fight order, so the sooner you sign up, the quicker you can have your battle.

Post with your name and character, and I'll add you to the list. If there are two characters from the same series in a row, then I'll have to slip in someone from another series in-between them, but if you have a friend you wish to have your cosplay battle with, please include that in your post and I'll make sure you two are matched up.

Thank you, everyone who posted, I'm glad to see so many people are looking forward to this event. So let's make it the best Cosplay Battle we can!

Sunday at 2 won't work for me, I have a TouHou gathering at that time.

Sorry I don't mod that section. You have to talk to the mods of that section to get it moved.

Thanks

Sunday at 2 won't work for me, I have a TouHou gathering at that time.


That post was actually from last year; this year it's Saturday at 3 and Sunday at 3:30. I'll still put you down for Saturday.

Fayt: Alright, I'll add you for Saturday. Do you know who you'll be cosplaying as for this?

On that day I'll most likely be Ciel Phantomhive from Kuroshitsuji.

List updated! We've got a pretty decent turnout signed up so far, and we'll most likely pick up plenty more at the convention. Don't forget, the Saturday time has been changed to 3:00, while Sunday is still at 3:30. I look forward to seeing you all there!

Attending both days is totally fine, I'll add you for Sunday as well.

Minaoto, obliviousedward, I'll add you to the list!

Zeroelement, just learn his battle poses and have fun. I'd also suggest using attacks from your side not facing the cameras, that way you're more visible while attacking, but there can also be good shots when attacking from the other side.

We've got a great lineup so far, looks like some awesome battles will be happening! I'm actually worried that I won't be able to see all of them on Saturday, since I'll have to rush off to my panel at 4, but the battles shouldn't take three minutes each, so I don't think that'll be a problem.

Fanime is less than a week away! I hope everyone's ready, because it's gonna rock. For those of you who have opponents you want to fight, when the list gets to you, you get to choose whether you pick your opponent or go with whoever's next on the list, so don't worry, you can get your foe of choice. I know some of you have gatherings you'll have to get to, so if you're in a hurry, let me know and I'll move up your fight slot.

Also, once Fanime begins, I'll have the list printed out with everyone's names, but people can still sign up at the event. Don't forget to check in with me when you arrive so I know you're here and ready to fight.

On Saturday, look for the guy with a giant watermelon. On Sunday, look for Kyon from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. It'll be right around the corner from the gatherings by the Hilton side. See you all there!

When your fight comes up, you have two choices: 1. choose your opponent specifically, or 2. fight whoever's next on the list. So when it's your turn to fight, you can choose Ciel, as long as that cosplayer agrees to it.

Glad everyone had a good time! Next year I'll try to set us in a location that's easier to find, or at least walk around with a sign and megaphone before the event starts. Do you guys want to do this two days again, or go back to one day?

@AbsolutelyCursed: I know, normally one competitor goes down, or we decide by applause, but there was some confusion with the applause that time, so I had to call it a draw. Sorry about that. Still was a very cool battle, though.

DUDE.  Awesome, Foxberry! :D

I remember mine was the second one up on Sunday, and it all happened so fast - I handed off my camera to one of the people watching, but I'd forgotten to take it off of video mode so the pictures didn't turn out to well. XD  Then my friend (hodgebodge, who was Bass Armstrong right after me) showed up for his fight and thus didn't have any pictures of mine. :P

So that's fantastic that you got everybody!  Thanks for all of the great shots!  Much appreciated. <3

Sorry I haven't posted in here for a while.

So, is everyone down for two days again, or just one? I'm actually thinking just one day might be better, if just for the sake of my schedule and voice, but if everyone wants two days again, we can do that.

Also, what times would you want for either day?

Sounds fun but I'm calling out. (1) I don't plan to make my war hammer as I've other unfortunate busy things on my plate and (2) it would be incredibly hard to balance on skates<3 (for defensive poses of all things!)
I mean, balancing on skates themselves is ONE thing. As is DANCING on them. B-bust A Move! But freeze fighting without my Hip Hop shoes on? Nuh uh! That ain't fair tuh me! xD

2. Sign ups are now open! You can sign up for one day or both, and be sure to list the character you'll be coming as.

Wonderful wonderful. I still don't know when the panel that I want to participate in will be, but hopefully i'll be able to make it both times. I'm trying to go to 5 gatherings and at least 3 panels so organizing is super hectic. I'll let you know if I will not be able to make the times listed above once things fall into place a bit more.

I think I might try to go (matters on if/when I get my panel and other cosplay gatherings), but I'd probably come as Subaru Sumeragi from Tokyo Babylon.

But yeah, I'll just follow this and as I get more info, I'll give a more concrete answer!

Post by: Angelx624 on March 11, 2012, 09:05:30 PM
Ack, as I hate to say it, I have gatherings on both days at 3 PM. But since the Idolm@ster gathering will probly be small, I can see about showing up around 3:30. xDD

And for cosplay, may end up being Grell in musical dress form. XDD With the Kuroshitsuji gathering being at 4:30 that day. Yay fighting in a dress, and probly with his scissors. 8D

Edit: Nevermind, seems like it'll be at a different time than 3. :P Well, morning would be good for me as well. XDD But I won't know what cosplay til I know times. :O Cause it all depends if it's near a gathering, time-wise. XD

Post by: Yuutousei on March 13, 2012, 03:14:01 AM
So, just thought about it but...
How had the "winner" of each fight been chosen in the past?
Title: Re: 2012 Cosplay Battle Event
Post by: Eliteslayer on March 13, 2012, 11:08:46 AM
Normally after three poses, one cosplayer decides, "Okay, I took what would be a nasty hit and this guy's been doing well, I'll take the fall," or "Okay, he's clearly not gonna take the fall, I'll be the bigger man and do it myself" then falls down "defeated." When neither does, then we turn to the audience by applause. If it's too close to call there, it becomes a double knock-out.

So can anybody break down what the cosplay battle event is? I know a bit but I still a little lost.
Title: Re: 2012 Cosplay Battle Event
Post by: AbsolutelyCursed on March 13, 2012, 10:46:47 PM
So can anybody break down what the cosplay battle event is? I know a bit but I still a little lost.


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 a few years back at another convention, and had a great time participating, so I thought I'd bring 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.

Depends on the timing though. Saturday, I have 2 gatherings from 2-probably 3:30 or 4

I'm free sunday whole day though.

I would be coming as either KAMEN RIDER JOKER from Kamen Rider W or IZANAGI from Persona 4.

Saturday at 2:30
Sunday at 1:00

Do these times sound okay? Are there any objections from those who have signed up?

Are there any times around then that would work better? Give or take a half hour or so? I haven't finalized anything, since I want to find a time that works best for as many people as possible. If nothing around that time works, since you have signed up, you can let me know when you arrive and we'll get your battle in before you have to go.

I will be sure to stop by sometime in the afternoon, but I'm trying to go to 5 gatherings and 3 panels so what costume I'll be in is going to be unknown. Thanks but don't go out of the way to accommodate me. I'll still show up, and can just wait around for a few minutes for a new challenger.

Alright, folks, the times are set. Sunday was moved up from 1:00 to 12:30 to avoid clashing with another gathering, so we've got Saturday at 2:30 and Sunday at 12:30.

I think I've missed a few posts, so if you've signed up and aren't on the list yet, please let me know and I'll fix that.

Other than that, let's keep spreading the word to make these battles awesome! I look forward to seeing everyone there!

No worries, xichi, they don't have to be fighting characters to enter. For example, Velma can run and try to thwack her opponent with a flashlight or book, or Gumi can use sound-based attacks. Half the fun is putting non-fighting characters in combat situations.

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: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.403506469692423.91841.100000992196766&type=1 and https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.403468116362925.91838.100000992196766&type=3

We'll be doing this again next year, so I hope to see even more fighters then!
