Do Yojimbo have to wear special uniforms, or do they get to wear costumes like everyone else? If so how do you tell them apart from everyone else?

the last few years we have worn either a red haiori or a red sash tho this year we definitely did not have enough. not sure about next year as of yet but while on duty we do often wear something that can be easily recognized in a crowd.

Hmm okay.
One more question...
What exactly does a Yojimbo do, and what are the benefits of becoming one?

(yeah I sound like a newbie I know)

Though there is a small chance something could pop up in the future and I would have to back out, but unless that happens (I would let someone know) consider me available to help out.

kylite - we should all talk at one of the upcoming meetings about your shortage of yoji uniforms.  I had no idea we didn't have enough, and I think it'd be fun to get a group together to have a little sewing party and make some more.  I think the red haori is important, since it's become somewhat iconic at k-con.  Most returning people know that when they need security, they should look for the red jacket!  :)

We can also attempt to collect red fabric donations at upcoming meetings, too.  I'm sure plenty of cosplayers have leftovers that they'd be willing to share.  :)

I'll look for you at the first or second meeting and we can talk about this.

I don't remember any tags, but were the haories linen per chance?  That's what some of them felt like to me.

While the red haori's are cool, perhaps they may be... fiscally ineffective for ALL the yojimbo?

Perhaps they should be worn by Yojimbo-Team/Platoon Leaders? Then there underlings can wear
a red headband/Arm Band with a specific symbol/character/number on it designating them to that
Yojimbo leader. That was the red Band and Haori are universal, and the leaders of the Yojimbo are
distinct from the grunts/teams. Making Red Bands seems alot easier/cheaper then a bunch of Haori's.

But thats my 2 cents.

*nods* it comes down to cost of materials, person to make said materials into the proper things, AND making sure what we wear is identifiable throughout the crowd without having to look too hard.

the red bands while nice are hard to spot and everyone wore them differently

the jackets are large and red and stand out, the only people we look like in the land of cosplay is inuyasha lol

still I am up for suggestions, donations, whatever works LOL

I've got a cosplay outfit I'm trying to finish, sad i couldn't get it done for this con, and after that I could see about making a single haori and multiply the materials/cost to make the amount needed for everyone working at one time to wear.  The haori itself takes VARY LITTLE skill in sewing to make (single stitch ftw), and we could have a little get together to make them, but its not necessary.  The cost for the fabric is probably somewhere around 7.50$ a yard.  Each yard is about 54" x 36".  I don't know exactly how much fabric they take, but I'm sure you can make 1 per yard if not 3 per 2 yards.  Donations and cheaper/deals on fabric are all possibilities.  Anyhow I still have to finish my cosplay and I'm not in a super hurry so not sure when I'll be looking into the haori.

well I cosplay as Kenshin, he also wears red (though a darker red than the Haori) but still.

EDIT: Can yojimbo wear the Haori over a cosplay? or do they need to wear normal clothes under it?

Mmm.. I was told we could cosplay, and we had others cosplaying there (not sure if they were all yoji or just other staff)  but I don't believe you need to wear anything over your outfit.  That would, after all, ruin the whole point of cosplaying :)
But no props are allowed on duty.

In that case, is there a safe place that yoji can leave their cosplay props/personal belongings while on duty? (say if they can't afford a hotel room) Cause I for one have a sword with my cosplay... and if it were to be stolen I would be royally pissed.

Also I want to clear up a rumor I heard. Yoji, as staff members, get into kumoricon for $10. is this true?

Well, first there is a background check... and the current Yojimbo have to follow
you around for a month to decide if your heart is pure and your mind is free and
clear of all fear.

You will then be kidnapped at a random hour of the night and whisked away to
the "trials" where you will be grilled on your anime knowledge, your skills in the
martial arts and your ability to solve puzzles and riddles in a quick manner.

If you pass this test you will go before the great Yojimbo 1 and lay your life and
bokken at his feet. If you please him you are granted the title of Yojimbo...
if not...

Well, lets just hope you are!

(All joking of course, I think we just have to go to the meeting once they approve us
and start learning how to do what yojimbo do!)

We are now kind of a lame duck board.  We can't sign people up for next year.  We need to wait until after elections so we know who will be running Ops.  Elections will be mid-October.

Right now lots of people are enthusiastic, but we can't do much until elections.  Gomen.  Whoever is appointed as Yoji 1 should be contacting people as soon as he is in place.

Just attend a general meeting, meet up with the director of operations and one of the Yojimbo leaders.

I myself have been requested to sign up as Yojimbo 1 by many people so I will try for it. Wether I get that position or not is up to the new operations director

Regardless I am working on the new roster for 2010 if I can stop flaling asleep after work. (convention  jet lag) LOL

I will tell ya now, we rarely EVER turn anyone away from being yoji unless you were in years past and simply didnt perform ur duties and such.

Just show up at a general meeting, I will be at every one of them if I can, and we will get u set up and trained. :)

We do really appriciate people attending the earlier meetings and, if possible, more than one.  The more Yoji we have who are more well trained, the better off the whole con is.

One of the first tasks of the new Board will be to set all the meeting times.  Once they are set, they will be put into the calender on the front page of the website.

The meetings are always on Saturday or Sunday (at least from the past four years I have been staffing) and you'll know by watching the website for the announcement about them. Hopefully we'll have it a lot like we did last year so the dates are set in advance so it is easier for people to get time off.

Also to answer a previous question: yes yoji can leave stuff in the yoji office (I do all the time) while they are on duty.

And to reanswer another question: yoji do have to wear either the sash or haori while on duty as well, whether cosplaying or not.

Thats part of the things to be decided when they set the meetings but I would assume it would be the same as last year, in the hotel itself.

That would be convenient... as I already know how to get there.

Not all meetings are in the hotel due to the higher cost of using that space. Most meetings are somewhere in Portland. We also try to have one in Eugene, a couple in Salem, and maybe some in Vancouver, WA.

That would be of soooo much use if there was one in Eugene. <3 At least for me. haha.
But really, I can make it to anywhere if I need to.

The haoris are all cotton, but some of them are better quality cotton than others.  I say hold off on any of this until the new Operations Director takes office, then we can request a budget for materials to make more.  We do indeed need more though.

Well, first there is a background check... and the current Yojimbo have to follow
you around for a month to decide if your heart is pure and your mind is free and
clear of all fear.

You will then be kidnapped at a random hour of the night and whisked away to
the "trials" where you will be grilled on your anime knowledge, your skills in the
martial arts and your ability to solve puzzles and riddles in a quick manner.

If you pass this test you will go before the great Yojimbo 1 and lay your life and
bokken at his feet. If you please him you are granted the title of Yojimbo...
if not...

Well, lets just hope you are!

That actually sounds like a fun way to meet the new yoji's, maybe we should do something.......

And to reanswer another question: yoji do have to wear either the sash or haori while on duty as well, whether cosplaying or not.
Well at least a sash is easily incorporated into most costumes, not totally ruining it.  Though in cosplay I doubt anyone would realize you are staff at first.

Thats why the Red Band would need to have some kind of symbol/word/number on it

To discern it from regular ones or generic samurai ones....

~Allykat

Not to mention most of the Yojimbo were carrying flashlights and tools or clipboards
along with their haori/sash
