Title: 2013 Cosplay Chess: Team Assignments
Post by: Jamiche on August 29, 2013, 01:32:45 am
Sorry this is so late, guys... all the last minute stuff before con is crazy.

I promised you the teams this week, and the middle of the week sounds about right.  So, without further ado...

... the teams this year are....


... not Good vs Evil :(  We were close again, guys, but just fell short.  We did have an amazing selection to choose from, and it took us a while to narrow it down to what we thought were the best of the bunch.  So instead of a themed chess battle, we once again have a random field of players, ordered as they amuse us :D

White Team

Chess Master:  Ice King (Xander H.)

King:  Princess Zelda (Chelsea A.)
Queen:  Iron Man (Mykel G.)

Bishops:
“Darth” No-Face (Rebecca P.)
Asuna Yuki  (Alana W.)

Knights:
Axel (Mandy G.)
Fai D. Fluorite (Kasey S.)

Rooks:
Haine Rammsteiner & Bado Nails (Emile L. & Nate M.)
Duenan Knute & Briareos Hectonchires (Ellen S. & Fox Y.)

Pawns:
Exacalibur (Laurie B.)
Amainom (Kaylee S.)
Desert Punk (Jeannie G.)
Tsukasa (Abrahan D.)
Edward Elric (Autumn P.)
Alphonse Elric (Ash P.)
Stocking (Jean H.)
Maria Kurenai (Victoria S.)


Black Team

Chess Master – Finn the Human (Aaron F.)

King:  Bobby Singer (Beau G.)
Queen: Mom (Makenna C.)

Bishops:
Luna (Amanda L.)
Nidalee (Ceilidh M.)

Knights:
Sasha Braus (Nichole M.)
Mikasa Ackerman (Jasmine E.)

Rooks:
Zoe Hanji & Lance Corporal Levi (Joli C. & Sarah B.)
Black Spy & White Spy (Danielle L & Ashley L)

Pawns:
Yuuki Cross (Savanna V.)
Tatewaki Kuno (James F.)
White Mage (Amanda C.)
Reno (Thena P.)
Momiji (Alexandra H.)
Sakura Kinomoto (Megan T.)
Uncellino (Elizabeth W.)
Izumi Curtis (Heide P.)


If you submitted a form, but don't see your name here, you have been placed on the alternates list.  If one of the assigned pieces is unable to participate, you may be chosen to replace them.  If you submitted as a special attack, and your person is on the list, then you have been accepted also.

As a reminder, all players must attend the mandatory pre-meeting at 10:00am Monday morning unless you have made prior arrangements with me.  If you are not there by 10:15, you will be replaced on the board. If you have special attacks, they must be present as well. 

Remember, if your cosplay is not complete, you may be replaced.

If you are not on the list, and would like to help out by being a stage ninja/special attack during the game, then come to the pre-meet and we can chat.  There are no guarantees that you will be participating.  Due to some of the issues we have had in the past, I will more strict on who/how many extras will be allowed.

I will be emailing notifications out sometime tomorrow.  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!  ;D  See you guys this weekend!

Well looks like I broke my streak of being a pawn when I've submitted a piece...by not being chosen this year. Sad, since I figured that Link would definitely get picked if Chelsea's Zelda got chosen. Oh well, always next year or a chance that someone won't show up this year.

I must remember that this is a family friendly game... I get the feeling that Bobby (Beau) and are gonna have to watch our language. I'm also very certain, I'm one of the things he'd consider hunt able.

YUme, will you be Hanji on Saturday? I'll be Levi that day and will be going to the shoot, and I was thinking we could meet and discuss what we'd want to do if we were to attack. I mean, we've never met before, so we may have a loss of synergy if we don't XD

I'd say, make sure you note the number of the square you're on before every fight, since you must clear the board every time. Try to think up some flavorful battle lines appropriate to your character that can help the fight to be more interesting. Often, improv cosplay chess battles can be a little lackluster compared to scripted ones for obvious reasons. Just try to be calm, have fun, and really try to roleplay as your character!

If I can get Late Checkout from the Hilton, for my mom, I'd love to participate in Cosplay Chess. THAT'S IF YOU'LL ALLOW IT!!!! I'll be cosplaying as Shizuo Heiwajima, from Durarara.

Since, it's too late for me to sign up to be a chess piece, I'd like to be a special move. It'd involve me "beating" you up with my bare hands, or "pummeling" you with my street sign prop.

Heh. Oh well, I'm an alternate. Maybe I'll get in next year! Even if there was a free spot for me this year, I doubt I'd get in since having two Princess Zeldas would be weird. |D;
