I'm all for this....
Definatly start getting together with staff on this if haven't already, cause you will need a space large enough to host it, especially if you plan to do it several times. At worse I guess you could ask since its planning to be a mulpitle time thing, to see if they might let us set up a board setup outside perhaps using chalk or something, which would be easy for the Hyatt to just spray away with a hose or will vanish with the next rain.

Willing to help a little if needed. I play as a piece in Youmacon's Cosplay Shougi event each year, so I have a rough idea on how this sort of event can be...and how crazy it can get. Strong suggestion would be planning some semi-scripted games, if not already planned and set up that way. Gamekeepers can feel free to IM me as well if they like and I can offer thoughts and stuff...

I am more then willing to help where I can....

I don't suppose I can offer to play a pawn? I love chess, and I find that the pawn is shown to be the most underrated piece in the game. People overlook pawns, both in real life and chess. Of course a pawn becomes more dangerous if left alone too long. I'm surprised that i've heard many offers for all the major pieces but no offers for pawns. I offer my support setting it up, as long as it doesn't interfere with me attending the One Piece Panel. I plan to dress as Shanks from that series. I also would find it immensely funny to have Light and L, or similarly matched hero and villain masterminds if we require the controllers to be cosplayers. These are my ideas on the matter, and i'll be happy to help where I can.
What one finds to be hilarious, another may find tragic. What one woman sees as the perfect man, another finds to be the most vile. Remember that you can't make everyone happy in the end, but you can try to make them smile.

Violence doesn't solve everything, but it sure makes it a whole lot more interesting.

I'm already in process working with staff from ACen to see if this event will run! We've got all the supplies needed to run, but we're just need to work out a few kinks!


RINI!! I HEART YOU! WE DO NEED TO HANG OUT SOON! I'll be heading down to where you live around August for college! XD I intend to do the Japanese panel this year too. XD

I'VE HELPED RUN COSPLAY CHESS FOR 3 YEARS NOW. =) If you need ANY help, please feel free to ask me. ^^ I can be useful sometimes >: D <3

Also, a few questions;
-Will the games be scripted? Or will there be players doing what they want?
-Will there be battle music? If yes; for each character, or just in general?

Girlie, you know you're on guaranteed! ^^

Unfortunately at this time, I cannot give any new news about Cosplay chess. As soon as I hear anything back from Staff, I will be sure to relay it to you guys! I'm so glad that you guys want to be a part of the event, and I will do my best to make it work. Everything on our part's done. We've got the board ready. We just need the green light from ACen staff, which I really hope we get.


Ashley Loves Cupcakes: We intend to script the moving of the pieces. However, as for people's lines, we will allow whomever is playing whichever pieces to say lines as they deem fit. No, we will probably not do battle music. Thanks for volunteering! I'll be sure to contact you if we need help! What's a good way to contact you?

Don't forget to register in the registration thread guys!

YOU GUYS! THIS IS AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!

I was at Ohayocon this past weekend where I accidentally ran into a certain special person at the ACen registration booth, ROSA HALCOMB! Guess what! SHE CONFIRMED Cosplay Chess for ANIME CENTRAL 2009! WE ARE INDEED WORKING FOR IT! I am in the process of creating the official proposal now, but we are on the right track to making it work!

All of you guys, I'm so sorry I haven't been responding. School has been kicking my butt, and I don't often check the forums. If you ever need to get a hold of me, make sure to email me at Kasemei AT yahoo.com. I guarentee a response no later than a day. ^^ I will be checking the registration thread in a few days, I need to get resituated with some homework, but I will be letting you know!

HURRAH!

That's great news! (I put up an application on the other thread for my friend, btw.) We had a few suggestions/ideas for the event, something that we think was sort of brought up earlier by another poster but we thought we'd get this figured out completely. We think it would be an awesome idea to let the kings (whomever you choose) to opt to run their own side of the chess board or to let you run it. We know things can get crazy if there isn't any order, but it would be interesting to see the kings actually run their "troops" on the board, instead of making them shadow kings. We know not everyone knows chess, so that's why we suggested that they be given at least the option to choose whether or not to play their own side or not. If they don't know chess and just want to be directed, then you or any one of your helpers who can take control and run that side of the board. It would make for more fun game-play, we think, and--even more so--allow characters on the board to be more active. Is there any way for this to happen?

We have contemplated the King idea before, and we are in the process of still considering this now. Right now however, the proposal is set at two players controlling the chess pieces. I think it would be funny to have the controlling people cosplay as L and Light or something of the sort. This has not been finalized yet. I see that you posted in the registration thread. I will get to that as soon as possible. Thank you so much for your interest you guys! I'm so happy that we're making this work!

The king idea would run on the assumption the kings are actually food at chess XP I would not count on it.

As I've said for the past three years when we've tried to get this to go, I'll gladly take part in it XD I think it would be truly awesome if this were able to happen this year, I've seen videos of how much fun this can be. I'm planning to cosplay as a Hellhound from Hellsing or Copy X from Rockman Zero, so if there's an open spot I'll gladly fill it :P

So as everyone probably knows, cosplay chess didn't run for the third consecutive year at ACen 08. I've attempted for three years of attempts and no success. This will not be the case for 2009! Last year, I posted the Cosplay Chess event for 2008 three or four days after ACen 2007 ended, but due to some huge issues not told to us by the con last minute, it was cancelled for 2008.

On that note, everyone interested pleease SHOW YOUR SUPPORT. Let ACen know that 2009 is the year to finally bring Cosplay chess to the convention! Right now there is no guarentee that I will be able to make it to ACen 2009, but I will do my best to make this event run irregardless!

This year, I had a fantastic group of people working with me on trying to get it together. The proposal is ready to be sent it as soon as ACen is ready to take stuff for next year. I want to jump the gun OFFICIALLY for this year, because if this year is not my final ACen, next year will probably for sure be it for a few years. (I go to college in the Fall of 2009).

So come on guys. Bring your thoughts, and let's try and make it work!


Edit: Reason the title fails is because I didn't realize I hit the i before submitting. >.<



ok i will as soon as i get up in the morning!i'm heading into bed.
