Post by: Jamiche on August 29, 2011, 03:22:03 am
I don't care if it's technically Monday, it's still Sunday to me :)

If you submitted and don't see your name here, you are on the alternate list (also known as the Red Team.)  If there is time, we may have a second game.

As a reminder, all players must attend the mandatory pre-meeting at 10:30am Monday morning unless you have made prior arrangements with me.  If you are not there by 10:45, you will be replaced on the board. If you have special attacks, they must be present as well.  

If you are not on the list, and are hoping to be a part of the Red Team, this is the time for you to be waiting outside the door (pieces will be selected by 11am, if we are to have any).  Remember, there are no guarantees there will be a second game.

If your cosplay is not complete, you may be replaced.

I will be emailing notifications out tomorrow.. most likely tomorrow night.  If you have any questions, or decide you no longer wish/can participate, please let me know via e-mail or PM, or you can talk to me at con (someone is bound to know where I am).

And now... let the trash talk begin!  Grin  See you guys this weekend!

Edit 1 - Corrected Rikku version... I always gotta make at least one change, right?

Post by: sk_chan on August 29, 2011, 08:00:34 am
Also, as I said in my app, it's okay that if perchance I survive a battle (...although doubtful since I'm a pawn), that my special attack and I can become one piece, correct?

Yeah, technically, it is...
Well, mine's from a PV, so actually I AM from an "anime," of sorts.
And Miku has been in anime form, so let's not be too harsh on Jamiche, who's been working so hard ^^'

And what she said

@black: lol you could go like "you are so handsome, and your *pause* butt looks ravishing!" and then turn around and look like you are vomiting (finger in mouth thing lol)


@gryffin: it is a manga though, and i'm guessing she's putting anime/manga/show in the same category since video games is really broad in itself. and i know they have a video game for vocaloids, but it's a voice program, more than anything. and since most of the things vocaloids are in, are AMV's, and music videos, they are technically considered anime (animation)

But it's such a shame you won't be in it this year T-T I was so excited :(

Not trying to be harsh...just saying. This way she'll know for years to come.
VOCALOID is a voice simulation system (for those who don't know) and have never been made into an anime. The characters are designed in anime fashion as is normal for Japanese merchandise & advertising. American VOCALOIDs have the same look so they don't stand too far away from the more popular Japanese ones.
However, there have been a few video games created based off of them. The most well known is Project Diva in which a lot of PVs are played. The characters are even sometimes given respective outfits. JBF is one of the songs played and the dress from that PV can be worn. (Here's a proof link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HX7A5da0epg )

Again, I'm not trying to be harsh or mean. I'm just trying to inform. I'm not saying she has to change it or anything. Just informing her that there is a category for them since I know in past years they were confused as to where to put VOCALOIDs because the Video Game had not been widely known.

VOCALOID is one of those weird things, not really in any category... but anime is what was selected on their reg form, so I went with it (and no, I'm don't know a lot about it, so info is fine :) )

What about Doctor Who, it's not Anime its a TV Show O.O

Probably anything you want~ Or maybe ask Jamiche about it... Hmmm...
But it's such a shame you won't be in it this year T-T I was so excited :(

The anime category is inclusive of manga, anime, TV... basically anything not video game... just easier to say anime :)  An no, it's not strictly an anime cosplay.... but it is a well-done cosplay, which is why it was was chosen.  It is also one that has not been in Cosplay Chess before... this year, I tried to include cosplays we haven't seen in action before.

But what character am I alting as ?

I did not list the alt characters, mainly because it was really late :-X  If people prefer I list those, I can... it will probably later tonite, after I send out the emails.

Super tall? I'm 5'11" without my boots, so I'll be over 6'... the Aerith will be the deciding factor xD My friend's is a mini hat, cause she can't figure out the whole big hat thing

We're not missing opening ceremonies for anything :3 I you happen to wander inside, my group consists of a ballgown!madame red, Scissors!Grell, dressy Ciel with a little hat, me, a vaporeon, Todd from Pokemon snap, I think Yami Yugi and then two others who I have no clue about...

Oh Wheatley....prepare for a plethora of idiot jokes....along with some mild cracks about what you did with the space core up there all alone for eternity. Bwahahaha...

I'm going to win this, then I'm going to take little Wheatley apart and find out exactly how they shoved all that personality in there, but no intelligence.

Aww, yay, I made it in! :D Let's all have fun, everybody!

( from the Miku pawn on the black team. C: )

Edit: Also, on the subject of VOCALOID - I'm preeeetty sure I selected Manga for mine (I could have chosen anime ... I'd have to double check my app, but if you say I put anime then I'll believe it), since I'm cosplaying from the Aku no Musume series of videos and that plays out as a story on its' own. VOCALOID does have Hatsune Mix, which is insane and unofficial manga by the character designer for Miku, and the Aku no Musume series has official novels out in Japan, which influenced my decision to select in the anime/manga category for this. To be fair, there really isn't a great way to categorize VOCALOID, since it's kind of one of those things that are all over the place. However, because of this, it has the unique ability to be placed in several different mediums. Which is pretty darn awesome.

Either way, I'm very grateful to be a part of this, and I hope we'll all have a lot of fun. : )

And I am all for the Mokona talking out Ash. Small cute things taking out the small cute trainer is a funny thought.

I'm trying to figure out what I should do for attacks, taunts, special moves, death sequences, and stuff, so I'm looking around here for second opinions.

I have some special attack ideas:
1. Borrow Ada's gun and double wield.
2. Call in a RE buddy and shoot.
3. If I can find and convince a Chris Redfield to do so: Piggyback on him and CHARGE opponent.

I've got one generic taunt, but if I get to taunt Luffy: "So you're made of rubber. Whatcha gonna do? Snap a rubber band at me? ;D"
I'm not sure what to do against Undertaker or Grell, any ideas?
so far that's what I've got.


Edit: On second thought, I think I put this in the wrong thread. I'll copy this later.  :P

Who are you cosplaying as? Just for reference.

As for myself and Grell (who is part of Jack the Ripper. They're my sister and her roommate >.>), you could make some crack about death. Undertaker and Grell are Shinigami, after all. And Madame Red is a serial killing socialite... You've gotta get something from that xD
Title: Re: 2011 Cosplay Chess: Team Assignments
Post by: katsumiko2012 on August 30, 2011, 05:06:31 pm
I'll try, but I dunno if I can find a Chris at the Con to volunteer. I know there is a Steve Burnside coming this year, so I might be able to convince him to do the piggyback charge, or have him jump in and save my butt.  :D (I'm Claire Redfield)

@Undertaker/Dark: I suppose I could say something along the lines of "I'm not afraid of death, and I'm not afraid of you either!"  >:(

As for Wheatley being my chessmaster....I can't tell if that is a good thing or a bad thing.  :-X

I suppose I should tell you my chess habits so you can expect what I will do.

-Pawns: I don't feel bad about sacrificing them to the cause, but only if it will help in the end.
-Rooks: You guys are sort of last defense..don't expect to move for a while unless I am forced to.
-Bishops: I use you guys a moderate amount
-Knights: Expect to be moving quite a bit
-Queen: You are my most used piece, so make sure you have a ton of lines to use.
-King: You are a pansy, so you..just stay where you are and run away when you are in danger.

For Yuna, you could have her summon random anime characters, such as the alts that show up. There was a Wedding Dress!Yuna two years ago. She summoned a moogle and the twin links. If all else fails, I have a friend who is cosplaying Vaporeon that could jump in if need be, but there should be enough alternates :)

so excited for this!!!! i actually didn't think i was gonna get to be in this my first time signing up. my bubbles will destroy everything :3 my friend Ari also got accepted as yuna. do you guys have suggestions for attacks for her. sadly she didn't have time to make a staff so she can't think of any attacks to use
For Yuna, you could have her summon random anime characters, such as the alts that show up. There was a Wedding Dress!Yuna two years ago. She summoned a moogle and the twin links. If all else fails, I have a friend who is cosplaying Vaporeon that could jump in if need be, but there should be enough alternates :)

OMG LINA YOU DID NURIKO??? 8D You are A-MAZING

"Yea the only thing I didn't like was having to re-brade the hair over and over again lol by the end of the day it manage to get a bit not in it, the wig went all the way down to my knees lol

I'm so excited for this, you guys... Dem-Dem, if I have to fight you, I'll cry D8

Stuck me on the bloody White Team. Wait, that's still Cosplay Chess? YES! I'm looking so forward to chessmastering again! I promise I'll be way funnier than last year. I have so much more material to work with as Wheatley. And (against all forms of stupidity) we'll win it! We're White Team!

But in reality, Black Team SHOULD have won. I was careless in the beginning and actually left Dr. Stein in a position to checkmate me really early in the game. The only reason she didn't is because I asked her not to so that the game would keep going... Also, me and her planned my great cheating escapade together after White Mokona died. XD

Aw Wheatley, you are so sweet admitting that XD. I enjoyed our match very much and will be signing up for Chessmaster again if I decide to go to Kumoricon again next year. (It is looking kind of iffy) or I might just go for day three to participate in chess.

I actually apologize for that...I made the dumb mistake of mistaking the White team's queen for a pawn. It is harder than normal to keep track of all your enemy's pieces when they are quarter pieces of post-it notes on a board XD We did try to use everyone, even if it was harmful to our plans.

Well, that's the unfortunate circumstance as a pawn and as well just a factor of the whole game. SOMEONE has to die first and I don't think anyone would want it to be them. I can at least assure you I did not kill you on purpose. In fact, nothing in this game was on purpose... Except maybe pelting Demyx with the potato, but that's another story. As well, be lucky you made the board at all. One of my friends applied for a space as Hollow Ichigo with one of the coolest masks I've ever seen and he didn't make the cut. Not to mention we had quite the collection of alternates who didn't get a second game to play in, The best I can encourage is don't lose heart. You never know what piece you'll get or even how much you'll do. Last year, one on my pawns was the decider of the entire match. With things as unscripted as they are, one never knows what will happen.

Anyway, on another note, I just wanted to thank all you awesome pieces for all the work you put into this game along with the chessmasters, the hosts, the tech crew, and Jaki. Without you, our jokes probably wouldn't make sense most of the time. Especially Statler and Waldorf's. You also really helped in making this to be even funner to be chessmaster than last year. After checking my financial means and location as of September 3, 2012, I can say I'll be returning next year and see if I can't return as the White Chessmaster once again. I absolutely love doing this each year, and I'll be happy to take it on once again. :)

Sadly that's just how it ends up being sometimes. I've been in Cosplay Chess 3 years now, and the same thing has happened each year: I'm a pawn, I move once, and I die in my first fight. Last year I even got killed twice by the exact same piece since they ended up being used in both games. Yet every year I still sign up because like Shout said, with unscripted games you never know what will happen. Someone has to die first, and sadly you just happened to get picked. My advice is talk with the other team, especially if you think you're going to not last very long(like if you're a pawn for example). Say that you want to use your special attacks in a fight, and most people will gladly oblige. It will mean that we get more fun by having a larger battle and the audience gets more enjoyment out of the struggle. Plus it'll be a nice change from the standard "run away until I'm cornered" or "take one hit and fall to the floor".

In short, don't give up just because of one bad experience. You never know what next year will be like, and communication between you, the chess masters, and the other pieces of both sides will ensure that your next experience will be more enjoyable.

@ Blizzara- First, might I just say you had a fantastic costume? It was quite fabulous :)
Second, I know what you mean. I think it should just go without saying that if you're taking someone out who has yet to have a battle, draw it out. This was my first year of cosplay chess so my first battle was rough, but my second one was a great length. And if you see the battle coming, talk to the piece. That's what the girl I battled the second time did (I can't remember her naaaaaaaaaaaaaamed D8 She was great, though!). Maybe if we'd shut up during the meeting we all would have been better informed...

I had a few inappropriate jokes I had to hold back... ;D

Also, I don't know if our characters style of comedy works in a situation like this.  We have some pre-written jokes (not enough for 2 hours it turns out  :-[) but our comedy relies heavily on funny situations or quick, funny retorts.  Filling a 1-2 min gap of time while the chess masters decided on there next move( btw, both of you did awesome!) with quick one-liners is difficult and not very appealing after the first 30min.  We work best when we say our lines, get the laugh, and the attention shifts. Also, we were kinda tired and off this weekend...  Including at the Sightly Anime Dating Game, which was also awesome.

But it was a blast and thank you for wanting us and allowing us to perform our "shtick" for everyone.  If you want us to come back next year (including just at the convention) we will be happy to!  It's as fun for us as it is for you!  Minus those lights...  We were baked crispy...  Plus, we are working on a twist for the costume for Sakuracon.   :-X

@ Blizzara- First, might I just say you had a fantastic costume? It was quite fabulous :)
Second, I know what you mean. I think it should just go without saying that if you're taking someone out who has yet to have a battle, draw it out. This was my first year of cosplay chess so my first battle was rough, but my second one was a great length. And if you see the battle coming, talk to the piece. That's what the girl I battled the second time did (I can't remember her naaaaaaaaaaaaaamed D8 She was great, though!). Maybe if we'd shut up during the meeting we all would have been better informed...

Why thank you for the kind words, although my girlfriend chelseahavoc deserves the credit since she is the one who made it for me.

Honestly, this year Cosplay Chess was kind of a mess. Alternates got way too jumpy and jumped in when they shouldn't, no one really listened, and the battles were just kind of haphazard. It seems like people are trying to turn what should be a fun game into unorganized dribble that anyone in a costume can join in on. Sadly if this keeps up Cosplay Chess might become a thing of the past...

It was hilarious...last year. This year it went waaaaay too far. It'd be one thing if it was only the other pieces, giving her their weapons once they were taken out or handing her a weapon when she got into a fight. When audience members get up, walk into the middle of the stage(some of which could've damaged the chess board by wearing improper foot wear, but that's beside the point), and interrupt the show just so they can feel special is going too far. At one point it became a safety hazard with Inuyasha's sword! Like I said, if you are a teammate and want to help out then fine, but alternates and audience members who shouldn't even be participating in the game unless summoned should not have anything to do with it.

In short, it's acceptable to a point and this year went to that point, spit in its face, and kept on running.

@ Neko- I think you were the Riku I was laying on when all the silver haired people died xD But I loved how you took the piece out! It was so Gaara! Gaara with a dolphin noise... my brain just melted

On the weapons thing: It was okay when the Mokona's were getting weapons from our team. Roberta had a suitcase full of them; why not use them? It made sense. Our team had enough weapons for both sides as it was. I ended up giving my weapon to Grell when Jack the Ripper was getting taken out because you can't fight Terra with a pair of safety scissors (Though Madame Red ended up with it). As soon as people came up and gave their weapons to Mokona, it got old fast. Plus, it was an interruption.

Next year, something should be said right before, directed towards everyone: If you are not the pieces involved in the battle, you are not allowed on the board without their permission. This includes alternates. If you get on the board without permission, you will be removed from the room and not allowed to return.That should keep people off.

@blizzara: i love how you just say everything i couldn't remember XD everything was a safety hazard. people stepping on people's clothes, people running on and off the stage when they shouldn't, i was really getting annoyed and just plain angry. but let's just hope security is better and rules are announced at the beginning before hand so this doesn't happen again :3

One thing that bugged me was the pre-meeting. People, we get that you sholudn't grab hair and you shouldn't mess with costumes! So why did we spend 20 minutes talking about it? The statement/questions that made sense were things like you, luvan, who said your weapon was fragile, or like the scarfs being used as magic. Those are important things. People should just know to stay away from wigs and costumes. It is, after all, a con

Hehe, it's what I do lol. Seriously though, safety is the top concern, not how many people we can use in every single match or how awesome of a weapon we can get a Mokona to wield. People seem to take safety as a second to having fun, but in reality they need to be hand in hand.

You'd actually be surprised how quickly people can forget some of that stuff, but at the same time we didn't need to spend that much time on it. A quick reminder is good, a lecture on it is not. The big thing though is making sure these get ENFORCED, not simply mentioned then forgotten.

I actually ended up making a thread on what went wrong and what we can fix if any of you want to check it out.

@ Luvan: I was so worried I was going to have to fight you o.o Though I probably could have just creeped you off the board like I did with Link... I really wanted to fight you or Terra... or both >.<

Also, the thing about people running on the board has another issue: The audience can't see anything. It makes it hard on those nearer to the back with only the camera to see. I even had issues and I was in the front row.

The little video thing? Yeah... though doing that wouldn't be that bad if they had one on the masters and one on the pieces, since then they could have the masters big during a move with a little one of the pieces, and then the pieces big during a fight with the masters as a small. Then it'd feel like sports...

The last time I was in Kcon's chess, it was a lot funnier, more organized, and overall just /better/ (I think this was two years ago). I'm weary about participating in it again...I may just stick to SakuraCon's.

On another note, I thought Wheatley was adorable. =3 Although the game was so long that I could tell the people on stage were running out of witty banter to exchange...

If you don't mind me asking, what exactly happened at Akicon? As is probably apparent by now I really care about our chess game, and if I know what to avoid I'll be more than glad to help out.

Yeah, I absolutely love a good chess game, so it was really hard for me to back off at some points and completely re-write my natural programming for Chess while paying attention to what was happening and getting to move all the pieces while leaving nothing in reserve for defense.

-A Solid Snake kept on shooting projectiles (Nerf I think) throughout the entire thing and it annoyed pieces/interrupted battles.
-The person who fought my friend (who was Ragna) stole her sword and hit my friend with it, injuring her and breaking the sword in half. I was a very furious Death the Kid.
-The chess board was really hard to see.
-There wasn't really a pre-meeting...it's was soooo disorganized. Chess people basically got pieces last-minute for the most part, and rules weren't discussed.

I must say though, my own battles were lots of fun...it was mostly me agonizing in-between battles or when others were fighting. I think some other props broke too because people didn't respect other people's things.

You did do well, especially since you were new to being a chess master and like you said having to re-write your brain. If you want to come back I'm sure most people would love to have you back. I'm actually thinking of throwing my hat into the chess master ring next year, so we might end up having to square off against each other :P

Oh wow, that is...just bad. I can feel your friend's pain, since in 2009 I got kneed in the stomach and nether regions(still don't know if it was on accident or on purpose) during a game of chess and couldn't really walk right for a while afterwards. If a costume or a prop ends up being damaged during one of our games though, you can be sure I'll do what I can to make sure the person who caused the damage at least makes it up to the other person somehow be it through paying for damages or helping to repair/remake whatever got damaged.

The cameras/screens were a new thing for us this year, so it was a bit of experimentation for us.  We are hoping to work out the kinks so it will be better next year... it can be hard to see the action if you are not close to the board, and we want everyone to be able to enjoy the event.

Yes, rules will need to be announce before the start of the game... the weapons for Mokona were cute, but excessive.  And the dance party on the mats at the end made for a very unhappy Programming Director >:(

The question/answer during the pre-meet is a time for people to discuss concerns regarding costumes/props/etc, and while you may think everyone should be aware, it can be forgotten in the heat of the moment (I believe the Black Mokona had an issue with her jewel piece, even after asking people to be aware of the issue.)

And I'm going to have to agree.. it felt a lot more unorganized this year.  Maybe it was because it was Monday, or because everyone was excited... but having to repeatedly ask people to quiet down and pay attention so we could get through it was a tad frustrating :(

There were a few hiccups, and we will hopefully fix those next year.  All in all, I think you all did a fantastic job, and it was a good game (even it was long  :P)  The chessmasters did as I asked, and went against their natural inclination to play a game where everyone participated, which is all I wanted.  Thanks guys, for taking the time to participate, and for all your great cosplays...  without all of you, we wouldn't have had a game at all.

Post by: Blizzara Dragon on September 07, 2011, 09:50:48 pm
Yeah, this year the audience decided that apparently the game just isn't going to be good unless they get involved themselves. We need to go over rules with the audience beforehand to make sure this year stays an exception rather than the norm. Maybe a Yojimbo or two to help make sure people who aren't supposed to be on the board stay off of it too.

@Jamiche I apologize for participating in the dance party. At first I imagined it was supposed to be just the winning team celebrating, but obviously that took a major turn away from that. I at least made sure I didn't have anything that would damage the board, but still what we did was wrong.

I agree with having the chess masters say the rules to the audience. I already have ideas for what I could say if I get chosen, since I'll most likely enter Soul or Ventus as a chess master next year.

Another thought I had would be have an entertainment announcer. I just pictured in my head having someone like the narrator from DBZ announcing the rules and adding in epic commentary to the end of each fight or right before each fight starts.

and crime scene tape would be godly -w-

and cameras are the one thing that people think can help their egos. hence i tried to keep level headed on the board >.< although when terra was surrounded by those women i couldn't help it... i protect what is mine *growls* >->

We kind of have had that. This is just the first anyone really noticed. Last year, we had a Kyon (Or maybe he was a gender-bent Haruhi. I couldn't exactly tell...) cosplayer announcing everything in character. If I recall, he introduced the chessmasters by character name and set out the rules and made the occasional banter with us about the game. If I further recall, there was a similar person for the cosplay chess match I watched two years ago.

I remember that from last year, but I don't really remember anyone from two years ago. Maybe that was part of the problem this year: instead of an announcer, we had comedians so people thought that things weren't as serious as they were in years past. Cause if my memory serves correctly the announcer from last year, while still making jokes, stayed mostly on the topic of chess and focused more on the action instead of the comedy.

Yup. In many regards, he was like a sports announcer and not... Well, Statler and Waldorf. I believe he even tossed out some playful warnings to people who were pushing the rules which was helpful. If we could get the humor and continual interest of this year, and the organization of last year, I think we'd be back to a pretty good chess game.

Oh, as well, one other thing I remember very specifically from two years ago was that there an actual little bit of backstory for the chessmasters. The audience was told why they were facing each other and even left a consequence for the loser. (They had to don (of course) a miniskirt.) The loser held his word and that was hilarious. Perhaps if next year's chessmasters could work out something like this, we'd have a more tuned-in audience since there remains an ultimate result.

Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed that game. My one regret was that the miniskirt was too small for Roy. And that by the end of the match I was braindead and had to face a 2 person team for the 2nd game.
And I agree, having a story behind the match helps motivate both the players and keeps the audience's interest.

I think that what we need is the classic sports announce duo of a rules guy who can give helpful reminders to attendees and participants and a color commentator that keeps things amusing during the lulls. Heck, they could even do little joke advertisements for anime products or actual ads referencing Dark Horse or Funimation (or future sponsors).

I would really love to help with the show that way. Mario and Luigi would probably be a good duo for that if I could find a like minded Luigi.

Maybe it's because I've been watching too much Soul Eater lately, but my first thought for a serious/comedy duo was Black Star and Tsubaki. There are a ton of different pairs like that in anime and video games though, so we should be able to find something fairly easily.

Well, if it means anything, I'm going to be Bowser next year. It's not quite the famous duo, but as evidenced from this year, I'm certainly capable of being plucky and hilarious pitted against other people. Not to mention, I'd love to try just hosting and step away from my chessmastering spot for a year to let others take the helm.

People could submit pairs. They don't necessarily have to be the funniest pair, but if they had banter, it could work. They'd have to submit some examples, though.

I am always a fan of Bowser cosplay, it doesn't surprise me at all that you would have such discerning tastes. I would love to do commentary/hosting with you as Bowser. I think that it could work out really well for everyone. I'll need to pay attention to who gets put in charge of things next year. I was hoping to be Progamming staff, maybe that can be a portion of my duties.

Awesome. I'd be honored to do that, if you couldn't tell, I'm a huge fan. XD

Gosh, am I a dork on wanting to see Bowser and Ganondorf do commentary. Also them going on the random tangent of who is more evil?

No, that'd be hilarious. XD

That would be excellent.

I think that Ganondorf would do a good job knowing the names of the characters and interesting statistic while Bowser would make funny observations and non sequiters.

Ganondorf has red mutton chops in one version right?
Hmmmm...... Might have to invest in a real costume...

Oh, on a technical note, I need to be able to give people credit when I reference them being moved about the board.

How accurate is the Page 1 list of names?
Participants, please let me know if you'd rather I use a screen name or a real name.

True, but also at the same time she has Aqua in her profile pic. Honestly it was a coin flip on that one lol.

@Tom You can also refer to chelseahavoc either by that or just Chelsea. She was the Vanille on the Video Game team.
