Quote from: Eliteslayer on July 08, 2009, 02:28:55 PMFirst 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.
