Title: 2008 Cosplay Chess: Rules & Sign-Up
Post by: Jamiche on June 08, 2008, 06:51:12 pm
Rules and sign-up form for this year's Cosplay Chess are available here. (http://www.kumoricon.org/?page_id=95)

Like last year, we are looking for 32 chess pieces, and 2 chess masters for the event, as well as alternates.  You do not have to know how to play chess if you are chess piece, all moves will be coordinated by the chess masters.

As this is Cosplay Chess, your character cosplay will be the deciding factor in who gets to participate.  This is not a first-come, first-serve sign-up - we will be looking for complete cosplays, with a preference for well-known characters.  This is a separate event from the Cosplay Contest, you will not be judged on the quality of the cosplay, or if you made it yourself - you just need to be a recognizable character.

To sign-up to be a chess piece, you need to do the following:

    * Read the rules (http://www.kumoricon.org/?page_id=97).
    * Fill out the registration form.
    * Submit the form and photos of your costume to chess@kumoricon.org

You must include photos of you in your cosplay, or of your cosplay itself.  This year, images of your character will not suffice.  Since this is not first-come, first-serve, you have time to wait until your cosplay is complete... there is no penalty for being one of the last ones to register.  You are also allowed to submit more than one cosplay (just submit a separate form for each.)

If you are interested in being a chess master, or want to help out in another way, please let us know by posting here, or via e-mail or PM.

Sign-ups will be open until August 20nd 22nd.  Players will be notified of their team and position the week before con, and will be required to attend a meeting before the event.

If you have any questions, please post here or PM me.

 I would like to be a chess master but only as a specific character.  At fanime I was cosplaying as young Byakuya from the Manga.

 Myself and my friend who goes as Byakuya-taichou were the chess masters. It ended in a tie and was pretty awesome.

 Not trying to be difficult, just throwing out an offer for an epic "WTF time paradox' battle if you'd like.

I recently cut my hair, so I don't currently have any of my easily recognizable costumes, so instead I will volunteer myself as a Chess master for the game.
I'm a tad out of practice, but I'm fairly good at the game. If nothing else, I won't be beaten very quickly which will hopefully allow for a more interesting match.

If no one else is found, I can return as a Chess master. My skills are probably worse than they were for the first game, too much Shogi and Majhong and not enough (or any) chess but I could still get the job done.

My friend may be cosplaying Mikuru for this event~

I have a Kyon cosplay in the works I'll be wearing for a day, but I find Komui from DGM being more, well...attack-able. But as I haven't signed up yet, he's still a possibility, since I'm thinking it'd be awesome to have Haruhi, Mikuru and Kyon all in the same game (and hopefully on the same team)...

Guh, decisions, decisions...

 I was worried about that at fanimeco  in the end it only made the battle more epic. We were cosplaying as two version of the same character and it ended in a tie.

The only problem was that the chess pieces were clear and frosted glass. I probably would have won if it weren't for mistaking his knight for mine.

Maral: Chess pieces are not black vs white for strictly Cliche perposes

I thought the battle were scripted? Shows how much I know. Being complete improve seems better. At sakuracon they seemed to be scripted because when a battle would start they each had special music. Maybe it's different at different cons?

The battles are not scripted.  It allows flexibility in case of no shows (which we had last year).  The list will be posted prior to con, so you can be thinking about what you might do, but you won't know who you are battling until the match.

alright thank you for the clarification. Will each piece have a mic or will there even be any dialog? I was at Kumoricon last year but I didn't go to the chess. Sorry for all the questions.

Ah, thats a good point. At Sakuracon there were a few battles that were planned out to be just epic but fell through because of no=shows.

Nope, no mics for the pieces.  If you have battle crys, or any type of dialogs, you just need to be very loud :D

Ehe I hope we have a better balance of sound for KC.
At Sakuracon the music was SO loud that I ended up shriecking for the stage ninja to hear me, and I do not have a very voice. It kind of hurt..and was not Renji-like.

I don't exactly know .... well .... anything about how the thing works.
1. Are chess masters like the Kings or something? Or are they watching over the whole board?
2. In the latter case, would they even need to be in cosplay then?
3. With so many offers for chess masters, would it be possible to predetermine (through prior playing or even a chess tournament) who gets matched with whom? I think, like the chess pieces, the chess masters need to be able to put on a good show, all while thinking on their toes and let all the pieces have a shot.
4. How long are the games estimated to take?
I'm sure I'll think of more questions later ^^;;;

Post by: nikkiolie on June 12, 2008, 02:38:36 pm
1.I'm not sure about Kumoricon but at sakuracon the masters were the kings. I have found many differences between the two so don't hold me against it.
2.As for if they need to be in cosplay well yeah, it's COSPLAY chess.
3.Usually the chess masters are very well known characters (Naruto and Ichigo) and they tend to be rivals in the anime/game or from rival animes (naruto and bleach).
4.I'm not sure how long it will take because it is improved.

Like I said that is what I saw at sakuracon and it could be different at Kumoricon (I is a noob at conventions after all, this will be my third time to a con).

1. Like nikkiolie said, at Scon the chess masters were the kings, but that was becuase it was a scripted match. Last Kcon we had actual players with a board.
2. Yes the chess masters need to be in cosplay, last Kcon we had Rufus Shinra, and Lupin 3 as our chess masters.
3. I totally agree.
4. It depends on how intense the game is, I'd say conservatively over an hour for a good game.

At Sakuracon they were.

At Kumoricon they were like announcers, very hilarious announcers. They were still in cosplay though. I think I speak for at least the majority when I say YES even the chess masters need to be in cosplay or it would be BORING.

Sign-ups are not first-come, first-serve.. it all depends on your costume. And truthfully, I think I have like one sign-up so far (I think people were intimidated by the fact they need to send in pics of their completed cosplay :-\).

I'd really like to do this; I just need toget off my booty and work on a costume. My friends are making me go as Raito, so for our group DN cosplay, so I could potentially play intense chess as him. I'd also really like to cosplay as Haruhi Suzumiyafor a day, because I am so made of win like that  ;)

I'm going as the most recogonizable character! Haruhi Suzumiya!
I'll be a chess peice since I'm not so well at being a chess master.
I just finished my cosplay like 30 minutes ago also! YES! ^_^ So happy!

...*crickets chirping* Nooo! Curse myself for being such a naively foolish child! Ah well, a truce, between two Haruhiists?  :) I wonder how many other Haruhis there will potentially be... *still intends on going as Haruhi for at least a day* ;)

My bad for getting slightly off-topic...*coughcough* I was wondering, what is the deadline for sending in cosplay pictures and whatnot for this?

I think I might go as Yuki though...She's pretty smart since she's a Organic life contact purpose human interface created by the data intergration thought entity which supervises the galaxy XD
I need a wig though and just wear my glasses...
BUT ANYWAY!
For the photo, if you're sending by snail mail is it okay to send a printed picture or can you send like know that's like offical on a photo paper...

Hey, you should go as Yuki. My friend will most likely be entering as Mikuru, and as we already have a Haruhi who entered...I'm contemplating on entering Kyon instead of Komui if we can make this work.

A bud of mine is going to be Father Nightroad, and I want to ask her for handcuffs so she can throw me a slipper or something. (Second manga FTW!) She won't actually be in the Chess tournament.

Post by: nikkiolie on June 29, 2008, 07:14:43 pm
She will have to fill out a form as well. The pieces can have "special attacks" where other cosplayers (or non cosplayers) outside of the game can help you out in an attack. I hope that helps ^_^

You don't see many Albel-sama's either. Albel = <3... I was gonna be Haruno Sakura,  then decided "What the hey, let's do a really complicated, time consuming costume!" XDD. I must be masochistic or something, because next year is Weddind Yuna, and the year after... Episode 3 KOS-MOS. ^^

Anyway, what kind of things do people do for special attacks? I was thinking doing a summoning, but no one will dress up as a summon for me. XDD I may just summon my friend, who's gonna be Marluxia, or something. XD
Title: Re: 2008 Cosplay Chess: Rules & Sign-Up
Post by: nikkiolie on July 02, 2008, 07:37:32 pm
I know what you mean about beig a masochist because this costume was not easy. I still don't have most of it done and I am not planing on doing it. The only thing that is going to be different from my avatar is there will be a collar and I have the wrist guard, and a sword. Thats it.

A summon would be good. I think that would work out well. I have wanted to do FFX Shiva for a long time. That also would be a lot of work. I plan on going as Jenova to either Sakuracon this year or to Kumoricon next year. I also want to do Rinoa. So that is my future cosplay and two out of the three are going to be quite hard.

Post by: Mitsukai Mizu Amaya on July 02, 2008, 08:06:56 pm
I was thinking of Shiva. But I put a picture of KOS-MOS and Shive next to eachother, and decided KOS-MOS was twice as hard. Especially since I'm making a bunch of her weapons and stuff too.
(https://www.kumoricon.org/apps/image_proxy/image_proxy.php?url=http%3A%2F%2Fi285.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fll55%2FLisaRizzoFan%2FKOS-MOS%2Fkosmos_v4.jpg)
plus one of her cannons, Her arm-blade, the ability for the costume of open for X-Buster, and the tertiary weapons system, and D-Teritas phase transfer cannon. ^^

good luck with that. There was a girl who cosplayed KOS-MOS at Sakuracon and it looked incredible but the costume feel apart a few hours after she showed up. I'll try to find a picture of her for you.

Aha, an episode one KOS-MOS. A lot like what I plan, except mine's likely to take years. I'm making it out of stretchy fabric, maybe cotton, clay, metal, and lace. @.@ And the weapons will take twice as long as the costume, seeing as some of them are bigger then the costume. XDD

I think it'll take a lot of wonderflex, crafting foam, fabric, metal, lace, and whatnot to make any Kos-Mos cosplay...
I think I'll stick to the one's i can make in one to a couple weeks cosplays i can make XD
I'm doing commission to T_T I'm so busy...

Post by: Mitsukai Mizu Amaya on July 02, 2008, 08:20:42 pm
I have no time for commission, though I know I'm capable. I may do simple ones after the con for money, but my focus will be on tweaking Garnet, making Yuna, and figuring out KOS-MOS

I'm still looking for someone who's going as Zero from Vampire Knight. I would really like a special attack of some sorts, but I think I'm too ahead of the american loop for anything like that.  I've been watching the TV show that was released in Japan, and I can't wait for it to hit America.

Would Wario from SSB be recognizable enough? Because I'm planning on cosplaying as him, and I'm putting all my effort into this one costume. But it would be cool if I was choosen to be in the Cosplay Chess, because I can assure you it would be funny (or at least entertaining).

I'm going to get someone to take my picture during the picnic. That will be the best time and I will be in full costume. Also before the con I want to get my hair dyed one more time. It isn't as blond as I want it. My stylist wouldn't bleach it so instead she used highlights. If my hair is down it looks blond but when I pull it up in a pony tail it looks like it is highlighted and I want to it look blond....plus the bottom half is still brown. x.x Need to get it fixed, I think my mom is even going to pay for it too.

The pre-meet is held right before the event, and both are on Monday.

If you haven't received your badge, go ahead and submit without the number. It can be added later.

It's fine if you haven't dyed your hair yet... just note that you are planning to do so, and it will be fine.

I have received a couple more registrations, but haven't had a chance to reply to them yet.. so if you've sent them and haven't heard back from me, give it a few days.

Did I catch all the questions? :D

I don't have a badge number OR my wig. If I send in my costume with the style of my wig photoshopped over my hair (or a slightly different wig) will that still be okay? I can send in a reference picture, too.

Title: Re: 2008 Cosplay Chess: Rules & Sign-Up
Post by: Jamiche on July 16, 2008, 08:53:33 am
@ NightLotus - that's fine.  As long as there is an e-mail address for contact, you don't have to have a forum name.

@ Richie - please, no photoshop pics.  Just make a note that you don't have your wig yet.  A reference picture would be great, as long as you include a pic of your cosplay as well.

@ Teasel - I'm not sure what your question is.  Is there a specific part of the form you are asking about?  And a special attack is only something that would involve other cosplayers.. if it is something you do yourself, while it maybe a special attack, it doesn't need to be signed up.

I was thinking of doing either Misa from Death note or Rukia (soul reeper or school girl) from Bleach.  But I have a few different ones I could do (see sig.).  Either way, I just need to fill out the form and sign up.  Any ideas who I should be or who might be needed?

Yes Rukia.

1) I'm gonna go as Renji ( apparently) maybe there will be an Ichigo we can beat up.

2) Misa is so very, very lame.

I was going for more Rukia.  Mostly because she actually has more power.  Misa has the death note, but where's the fun in that XD  My cousin is Ichigo, I'll try to force him to join in.

Random and kind of OT. I used to really like Rukia. Until the most recent episode. I hope Byakuya disowns her.
I just keep reminding myself that it's filler and technically 'never happened'.

I need to fill out my form too. I was going to go as Kanda also but IF that is finished by KC it wont be by the form deadline. >_<

I had a question for the person in charge of Kumori's Cosplay Chess. I sent a PM, but never got a response.

For the second year in a row, I'm going to be working the Sakura-Con booth as industry. Will this prevent me from participating in Cosplay Chess or not?

Sorry for the delay in my replies, guys.. other deadlines have been keeping this on the back burner :(

I've sent out replies today to all the registrations I have received... if you have not received an e-mail, I did not receive your form. (Except for you, Syd.. I did get your form in the mail, but with no pic like you thought.  If you can e-mail or mail it, that would be great. Or bring to a gen mtg.)

Bob - go ahead and submit your cosplay, we'll just mark it as other.  It's the quality of the cosplay that is important :)

Nikkiolie - you can submit more than one cosplay.  If you have a strong preference on which you would like to use, please let me know.. otherwise, it gives me options on the make-up of the teams.

Wind - As long as it doesn't conflict with duties on your end, and you can make the pre-meet, you are more than welcome to participate in Cosplay Chess :)  The more the merrier.

Thanks for all your patience, guys.  If you have any other questions, let me know.

Cool, cool. It shouldn't.

Sorry for all the questions. I'm just curious about things.

It's just... I have one costume that I can use, it's finished and really popular with people. And the other is brand new and still pretty popular, from my discussions with people about it.

But, what if the costume we want to enter in isn't done yet? It's about half done, but my camera is currently MIA. Do you want us to wait until we finish the costume and are able to take pictures, or just apply anyways?

Wind - your costume needs to be mostly complete (maybe lacking a wig, or something small) before you submit it, but you still have plenty of time.

Bob - unless they are part of your costume (or are smiley faces), you probably should be wearing pants.. we are a PG-13 con :D

Okay thanks. I've got some small sewing left to do and it's done. Once I get my camera back from my sister's boyfriend (long story about that) I'll take a picture to send it in. I'm missing my wig and holster at this point in time. I just don't know how recognizable I'll be without the wig. I'm also worried that not many people will recognize me in this particular outfit. I mean, everyone I've talked to about this costume is enthusiastic about it... But I'm just worried about the likeliness of being recognized.

Also in the "series" line there's not enough room for "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya" x( Will "TMoHS" be acceptable?

Edit: Sorry one more question T_T For "Special Attacks" do we list the name of our attack or do we describe it? And should we have more than one?

Deadline is Friday, the 22nd. (And depending on how many registrations I receive by then, I may accept a couple of days after that).

Sorry about the timing, guys... it's our last big event of the weekend, otherwise Monday would be kinda slow :).  If you need to work hotel check-out around the pre-meet, let me know and we will figure something out.

Also in the "series" line there's not enough room for "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya" x( Will "TMoHS" be acceptable?

Edit: Sorry one more question T_T For "Special Attacks" do we list the name of our attack or do we describe it? And should we have more than one?

One e-mail is fine, but please do a separate form for each.  And either "TMoHS" or "Haruhi Suzimya" is fine.

You don't have to have a special attack... the reason for that line is if you have a special attack that involves another cosplayer that you will "summon" for it.  Like if you're Ash, and you "summon" Pikachu (which I actually would like to see ;D)

So if a weapon is too large to be peacebonded it can't be in Chess, can it? Gawd, Lavi-chan won't be too particularly happy.

If you can't peacebond it, it won't be allowed in the chess match, sorry.

 *Siiiiiigh* I'll just have to 'go easy' then. Last  KC was the greatest con I'd ever been too and as a result I was sooo damned tired that I couldn't think clearly. The Chess masters must have thought I was really dumb.
 I honestly have no idea how I was even able to fight by that time.

2) We have a retarded rabbit!? ( Lavi)
 "Incredibly pissed' no longer constitutes how I feel about not having my Kanda costume for KC.
 I'll have to take a rain check on kicking your ass next year 'tard boy. >D

Well hey, it's not my Lavi costume! But no Bakanda makes me a sad little DGM fangirl.

I'm trying to devise a method of attacking that doesn't involve asking nicely to tackle someone and then ending up breaking everything I've spent three months making. Anyone have any ideas? I'm totally open to them!

Okay, latest round of form e-mails have gone out. Once again, if you haven't received a reply from me, I haven't received your entry.

There is still room for a few entries.. I need around 5 more pieces, to fill out the board.    So, if you've been waiting on sending in your entry, now is the time.  If I don't get enough pieces, I will have to wait until con to post teams, so we can get more entries then.

Post by: nikkiolie on August 21, 2008, 09:45:14 am
o.o People send more entries in. I can't wait that long I need to know what I am going to wear when >_<

Is there anyway that you could tell those that made it that they made it and not what team they are one?

I'll have to think about how to work that.. the problem is, pieces are selected by their cosplay.  If I hold open the registration, and we have a bunch of people with amazing cosplays sign-up, then I have to tell confirmed people they are booted.  Or I have to say the next 5 people that sign up are in, and we may get so-so cosplays...

I am hopeful that we will round out the entries, and I can post teams.  I may even extend the entry time a couple of days, so we have a definite cut-off, but still give people time to submit their entries.

How are we supposed to send you the PDF...

If you can't send the .pdf (some people have been able to, some not), there is a .doc file that you can send in instead.  It's next to the .pdf version.

Alright that is fine with me. I'll just wait a few more days. I am just trying to plan what costume I wear on what day. But I understand where you are coming from. If you have a costume that was just ok and then you tell them that they’re in and a costume comes in that blows you away....yeah I get it.

If we receive enough entries prior to that, I will close it, and you will be placed on a wait list.  But if we don't, and I leave it open, that's fine.

Currently, the deadline is the 22nd.  If I don't receive enough entries, I may extend the deadline a couple of days, but that's not guaranteed.

Okay guys, I haven't been able to respond to what I've received, but Majinnekochan's pleas in the cosplay forum for help was a success ;D  I am still accepting registrations, but the deadline of the 22nd will hold.  Any entries received after that will be put in the "if we have time for another match, maybe" pile.  Teams will be posted next week.

Please keep in mind that it is the quality of your cosplay, not when I received your registration, that determines if you are selected or not.. and there have been some awesome cosplays.  I have also received some duplicates, and since the preference is for only one of each cosplay on the board, if you are Sakura (Naruto) or Esther (Trinity Blood), and have an alternate you would be willing to submit instead, now is your chance.

As long as I receive an e-mail, it's fine.  I will be replying to all the entries I've received tonite... if you haven't heard by tomorrow nite, I didn't get your reg.  On the plus side, with all the last minute entries I've received, I may be able to come up with a third team, to take on the winner of the first match.  Hmm... we have more time this year, and if we really keep it moving...

I know I am starting to get nervous about acting myself....but since Jamiche hinted that he would rather see Temari than Albel that makes it a little better. Temari is much more of my own personality where Albel would be serious acting x.x

Aww, guys, it's fun! Really! =D Nervousness may occur, but you're up there with a bunch of people, so it's not just you...and when you battle, it's STILL not just you, since you're facing someone else (or perhaps you have a team attack).

Primary character is Hige from Wolf's Rain. He is my main hope to get in. Oh well, I am an actor so I am used to the bitter sting of rejection.

I will never do it again.

Sakura's kinda tough for a technical attack... When I was Temari last year, I could throw my fan around and scream wind scythe jutsu..... but now all Sakura's got are plastic kunai.... this is gonna be entertaining.

D: Something is telling me bad things may happen to me while wearing that costume...

Oh no.  All I did was sprain my ankle because I had little depth perception going down stairs.

It was worth it though because at the time I was with a Sora who of coarse asked " Can you walk"? I said I could and almost fell down again. XD

Priceless.

Well then I suppose it's a good thing that I've got pretty sharp vision, even through a layer of dark cloth.

Jamiiiiiiiiiiche... Take your time, really. I'm not wriggling in anticipation, really.

Yes it is. My eyesight isn't very good to begin with.

I don't know what kind of fabric your using but the stuff I used was ..weird  Even though it was obviously black, I could se better in the dark. Couldn't see crap in the light.

I can see pretty well at twilight-ish hours, or when it's sort of dreary out. If it's too light the light makes it so I have to strain. And hey, if it was dark out I'd seriously be blinder than Toph Bei Fong.

I know there's time, but just seeing that Jamiche is one of the people currently viewing this forum and has been for like five minutes makes me all antsy.

Toph Bei Fong? Dpn't know that one

Oh god I HATE it when it's bright.

 I'm incredibly light sensitive so I always look pissed off ( It;s the bane of my existence, I'd actually be attractive if not for that >_<) Sometimes people will come up to me furrowing their eye bros and ask " why are you sclowing"
 Oh god that sends me into a rage like nothing you wouldn't believe. ^^;

Heh well it's like this every year. The day the moderator says their going to post the roles everyone gets sooo excited and post like every two seconds.

I just know whomever is in charge is looking through the posts and smirking as they intentionally wait until 12:01. Hell, i would. >D

I would so love to do it! I'll attempt to have Garnet fixed, if at all possible. The only thing that needs to be done, really, is replace the arms and fix the necklace. The crown is beyond help, I'm getting it and everything else commissioned out of metal. But the rest I can make in an hour, so I'm in!
