2010 Cosplay Chess: Rules & Sign-ups
« on: August 02, 2010, 12:23:03 am »
Okay, boys and girls... thank you for your patience (and not spamming me with emails :D)

Rules and sign-ups for this year's Cosplay Chess are available here: Rules  Reg

Once again, we are looking for 32 chess pieces and a couple of 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.
    * 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 (I can't reiterate this enough, guys... if you don't send pics, you don't get to play).  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 25th. Deadline extended to Friday, August 27th  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
.
(C'mon guys.. we've had Men vs Women the last couple of years... I'd really, really love to see Good vs Evil :D)

Edit and update from our fearless Cospay Chess Leader:

The required pre-game meeting will be Monday at 10:30am followed by the game at Noon, just like last year


Mina Konnichi wa!

Well, I'm certainly going to get my pics together and apply. I think I'll submit my night class Vampire Knight cosplay and see about being on the side of EVIL! this year...Bwahaahaahaaaaaa!!!!

Ahem... yes...and I'll be attempting to give our fearless leader a hand with posts and questions here too. So if you have questions just post or pm me and I'll do my best to get you the answers.
Have a good look at the rules, get those cosplay's ready, take some good pics and get your forms in so our leader can set up the teams.

A little fyi about myself: I've been served as the co-coordinator for Sakura-con's cosplay chess games for the past 5 years and was fortunate to be selected for Kumoricon's chess game last year as Capt. Teletha Testarossa (Tessa) Full Metal Panic.
So, I'm just a happy volunteering actor looking for a stage. ^.~

Cheers!
Kato

Good vs Evil would be great. I know who to submit XD

I would love to try to get Saix in for this but I don't think I would have the costume done and ready for a picture by then. For now I will stick with my fave :D

More than likely. It definitely allows for better battles and smoother progression of the game as a whole to have it scripted, but improv battles can be just as good.

Current plan is to keep the game at the direction of the 2 chess masters like last year.

"quote from the main page: at the direction of two chess masters, will move, fight and die live on stage. The combats are not pre-scripted—anything can happen!"

It takes a great deal of time to do scripted games and give people enough time to practice (voice of experience from doing Sakuracon's games)
We also do unscripted games because they're alot of fun too.

I think the unscripted ones are alright. I understand that it takes a lot of time to make the script and prepare properly. The one thing I noticed last year was that the games seemed very chaotic, this is mainly do to the fact that everyone kinda wanted to do their own attack even if they were being beaten.

I think about it before I make my decision to enter. I also don't want to enter the same cosplay two years in a row :P

Oh yes, I totally understand the chaotic feel. That happens alot with this style of chess battle. It's really impromptu acting and depends heavily on the players ability to make it up as you go.
For me that actually makes it more fun as I do alot of impromptu.

One thing I do that helps is if I don't recognize a game or anime character on the opposite side, I'll go and talk with them beforehand to get an idea of their character so that if I do fight them, I can adapt how my character behaves in relationship to theirs.

Hopefully we will have time in the pre-meet to chat with each other and talk about making the combat more dramatic and exciting for everyone, especially the players.

Also for everyone, don't be afraid to submit a cosplay you've done before. A cosplay you love to do is the best one you could choose to submit whether it's new or not.

Cheers,
Kato

Yosh! Got my application & photo submitted ~ Shiki Senri from Vampire Knight for the Evil side :D

Remember everyone, you can submit more than one cosplay for consideration (each costume app and attached photo needs to be on a separate form)

I have a new cosplay for Kumori almost done (Aoi Futaba, You're Under Arrest) so I may submit that one too for the "good side" just for fun. ;)

I'm aware of when it was last year. This year the train i may be taking home leaves around noon, thus why i'm concerned about what time chess is.

Ah I see. Well, I haven't been told this years schedule so I sent a pm to Jamiche asking. If I get that info I'll obviously post it here to let everyone know.

I only have three weeks to get my cosplay together for this....breathe me breathe. x__x; My summer has been so hectic but I still want to do this! I gotta buckle down and get to work! >8D;;;

Also in regards to unscripted vs. scripted I personally think scripted is better; for many reasons. One, it gives players plenty of time to figure out what they want to do (even able to go as far as contacting their opponents to brain storm cool ideas), it pretty much garuntees that all characters get a chance to move, and it usually ends up more even than one team dominating over another.

This coming from experience. I worked in a scripted on at Sakuracon a few years back, the map out of the moves was what actually took the longest for the staff I belief and after that the players just had to check in with each other and figure out what they wanted to do. Except for the battle music they had us use. That was epic, yet overly complicated for audio operators. xD

Well I can tell you that the scripted game takes us about 6-7 months to put together from the time we open up applications to pre-meet planning and game time.
Of course we are putting on 3 separate games at SC which adds to that time but with logistics and music/audio it is quite complicated to put on and currently it's not a staff position at SC. I do this on top of my staff job.

I'm never being chessmaster AGAIN LOL

Hey don't feel bad, the audience was entertained and that's a win!...even if us girls kicked butt and won the game....And the mini skirt thing was a huge hit. Absolutely hilarious.

Thank you I guess, I've been running the sound for Cosplay chess at SakuraCon for the last three years.
That first year was overly complicated as while i put all the music together I didn't run it as i was in the game and had to explain it very quickly to the guy who was running it. I"ve refined it since then, and have run it myself. This year I got some complaints but to my defence during the period I would normally be compliling the music I was battling a computer who very much wanted to crawl into a corner and die.
Like Kato I do this on top of my staff job at Sakuracon, most of us who put it together do.

And the awesome work you put into it is Very Much Appreciated!

Your ability to battle other characters and crappy computers while providing sound is indeed amazing.

Oh I should point out that I'm not choosing the players and chess masters for the game so obviously the flattery doesn't go very far but it's still appreciated. All us volunteers want to be loved after all.

The required pre-game meeting will be Monday at 10:30am followed by the game at Noon, just like last year

I'll place this in my first post as well.

What would you put a Vocaloid as on the Manga, Anime, or Video Game section?
I know they have Vocaloids in last year but...there's no "Voice Simulator of awesomeness" section...

Yeah, you're right. I never thought about it like that. I love the "Voice Simulator of Awesomeness" title too. Very cool.

For Kumori, I would put them in the Video Game section as Vocaloids started as software creations and have been made into video games too due to their popularity.

Hope that helps,

^ Totally with you there ^^;

Also. I'm thinking about making a forum where people would tell a little about their characters, so people can get to know their allies and enemies!
It would make this year more organized, and could make the fights better!
Good plan?

I like that idea.~ That way there are no epic fail battles that people blink at think: "What just happened?" I had one of those and it was really confusing. So I'd say go for it! :3

It's always fun and useful to chat about the characters you cosplay. Obviously until the game selections are made you won't really know who will be on the board but I love hearing about others cosplays and why they choose them.

Yay! Sign-ups are finally posted, I was getting worried.

Anyway, I'd like to apply to be a chess master. Uh, I'm not exactly sure what else to post, so I'll just say generics.

- Male
- I have thorough knowledge of how to play chess
- I'm 17.
- Cosplays include Battler Ushiromiya, (Umineko no Naku Koro ni) Tamaki Suoh, (Ouran) and Nozomu Itoshiki. (Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei)
- I'm also applying to be a piece.

Okay at this point I know my cosplay will be ready on time...I'm just worried my wig won't be. This is out of my control so I feel a little unnerved. I hope the goddesses (yes, goddesses) of cosplay are on my side with this one. D=

If all else fails, you could probably send in a picture of yourself without the wig and explain what's happening...Though, I'd ask if that's okay first.

Battler would be awesome, but more people know Tamaki...So it makes sense. And Tamaki is king after all XD

Raveen, that wouldn't work well. I was a chess master and had a co-chess master on my side...got really annoying. Not the person but having to take turns moving and stuff. We tended to mess each other up. xD;

Neko, yeah I might have to do that if all else fails.

I'm not fully sure who'll I'll enter.
Envy is for sure...Then probably Akito, Kaito (if I join other Vocaloids), Greece, and Voldy...And maybe Zorua if I can get my trainer to join as well.

The official use only is exactly what it sounds like: for the officials to use. You don't fill out anything in it, its only for the coordinators when they decide which pieces get in, what side they are on, etc.

Yep, exactly right. I've been thinking that I need to change that part on the Sakuracon signup one so people don't get confused about that.

No problem. Just put "Registered-Will Call Pickup" in that spot. Badges at this point are not being mailed out and you have to get them at the Will Call area.

For Everyone: Also note that the deadline for applying---->August 25th is coming up, so get those cosplays finished and apps in

Oh man, that was my first Cosplay Chess. I remember that well. I was Ishida in his school uniform with an oversized needle and thread...the one who moved last. Good times. :D Since then I've been in so many games...like 5. Or something. Participating in CC is one of the best things at con imo.

Although I don't know if I'll be entering this year. Cosplay Chess' premeet conflicts with the Durarara!! photoshoot I'm really excited for, and that's at 11. =\ Unless I could get into CC as Izaya and run to the premeet, get to the shoot for about an hour, then come back for CC at 12...I dunno. It doesn't seem doable. Although I know all the CC rules and whatnot since I've paticipated in ~5 games, I'm assuming attending the premeet is common protocol.

Don't worry too much about it. I'm wanting to be Envy for chess and it shows quite a bit of skin, plus I'm not the skinniest girl out there ^^;

In the first post the coordinator says that the players will be notified about being in the game a week before con. My assumption is that this includes selections for chess masters too.

Well, I sent in two forms, but they're for two different people because I was confused and it said I could send in two forms for two characters, but I'm not sure if it meant for ONE person, or if two people could just send them together. @_@ Is this alright? I sent one for me as Princess Peach, and one for my fiancee as Bowser.

Yes generally it means one person can submit multiple cosplays on separate forms with pics. You should be fine as long as all the information was completed on each form and pics of the cosplay were attached to each submission.

I have a question... I want to submit my Sasuko outfit but my contacts and rope won't be here until after the form and picture are due.
Is it possible to submit my outfit without them but I will have them for the contest?

Also!
Do the pictures have to be of the outfit on me? Or can it be of the outfit on my mannequin?
I would want the picture to be a good one but I can only take pictures of myself in the bathroom where my full length mirror is.
I could have my mom take pictures of me but she always gets all weird when taking my picture. :/

Don't worry about the contacts & rope for your cosplay photo, those are accessories and as you said can be added for the game. As for the photo, it's best for the photo to be of you in your cosplay so if you can get a friend to take your pic or use a tripod or table with your camera on self timer that would be best. I've taken many self portrait pics with a tripod or put my camera on a pile of books on a table to get pics.
If that doesn't work then go for the mannequin pic. Any pic is better than none.

Cheers,
Kato

Hey, thanks for the reminder. Your comment on boots was something I wanted to bring up.

Please Note: The chess board we will be standing on is made of soft foam rubber like a martial arts mat and just as in those sports, High Heels, Boots, sandals and other hard sole shoes are not allowed on the chess board mat, socks,stockings and bare feet only please

This mat cost Kumori alot of money so we want to keep it nice for everyone to use for a long time.
Thank you for your understanding,

Arigatoo

I still have to fight with the zipper on my dress for Infinity Arc Sakura (Tsubasa) and put on the belt for the top...and cut and dye my hair, and find my damn gloves which seem to have disappeared. But I'm doing all that tomorrow and having my mom photograph it.

But this is what the dress looks like in the manga (this is seriously the only pic of this dress): http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v68/konpyu-tamania/Cosplay/11.jpg

I have a question. I'm submitting one character but two different costumes of that character. Would I use one form and submit both pics or two forms?

Also, I have a friend as my special attack but her overalls aren't done yet because I've been scrambling to get my submissions done. She won't be a piece but I was wondering if it was okay for a special attack?

Submit two different forms and picture for each character that way the coordinator will know its one or the other to prevent confusion.

I would go ahead and list your friend as the special attack on the form and note that she's not in the game just an attack you want to call on from the audience.

Tomorrow the 25th at midnight.

Though, just saying, in past years, pieces have showed up with attacks as a last minute change.

True, we've made last minute substitutions at SC too but we try really hard to avoid that.
It's really what the deadline was designed to do. It allows the coordinator to make the selections and contact people and it's important that the player pieces and attacks are ready, not "going to be ready soon"

It's totally the coordinators call whether to allow those changes this year and i'm not the coordinator, just a fellow cosplay chess coordinator for SC that volunteered to help out.

Well, if my piece doesn't, can I just make up an attack? ;o;
Or does that disqualify me from being considered...?

Don't quite understand the question. Do you mean if youre not selected as a piece can you still participate as an attack? (yes but you need to submit an application as an attack for a piece)

For the attacks. It says no hitting people with things....However! Would throwing plushies at people be okay?
I am going to submit Sasuko and I wanted to use one of Orochimaru's jutsus. (The one where snakes come from his sleeves)
So I wanted to like...throw stuffed snakes at my opponent.

And I wanted to make a little stuffed flame for some of Sasuke's well known fire attacks that I could throw at the people as well.

(Maybe even make a Chidori ball. X3)

Would that be okay?

Final call on that will be the coordinators, but your attacks sound fine (and safe) to me. We're just trying to prevent damage to you, your opponent, the audience or the convention space & mat.
We allow soft stuffed items to be tossed at SC's games, so it should be fine. Remember tho, violent hitting with any object especially if your opponent doesnt know you're going to do that is still a no-no.

Oh, sorry, what I meant was, if my attack doesn't submit her form in time, can I just make up a new attack, or am I disqualified as a piece?

( I am horrible at speaking today xD)

Yes, you can make up a new attack and no that won't automatically disqualify you for selection. I do recommend you "motivate" your attack to get their form in tho. It's best that way.

Cheers,
Kato

When it says that sign-ups will be open until August 25th does that mean by tonight at midnight or tomorrow at midnight? Just curious.

Tomorrow the 25th at midnight.

What? All martial arts are done on these mats barefoot. Pretty standard practice really on these kind of mats.
Alot of us just wear our socks/stockings but either works fine.

Lol, Yeah socks & stockings are fine. You could bring the panda slippers (cool btw) with you and ask the coordinator if they are ok. Often soft sole bedroom type slippers are ok, just check with her first.

Well, technically a week before con would be this sunday the 29th but I know she's Uber busy so I would just ask everyone to be patient and wait for her to contact/post who's where on the board.

This time is always super stress time for staff so patience is always appreciated.

Sorry, no even that can damage the mat. I asked that of the people that make the mats as I was curious too.
For this it's bare feet/socks/stockings/soft fuzzy slippers only.

I'd love to find some socks that look like boots or shoes for this kind of thing. I know they must be out there.

You know if the wig is fairly close what you might do is just wear it as is for the application pic and then take your time styling it for the con.
It would give you time so you don't feel rushed and make mistakes.
You might also look for someone close to you to help with the cutting part and check out some tutorials on cutting/styling wigs.

Hope that helps,
Cheers,

Try Sock Dreams - they're in Portland and are apparently really nifty, although I've never been to their shop or website.

Hey all... I've replied to all the submissions I received.  If you did not get an email, I did not get your form.

Teams will be posted Tuesday nite (and based on past years, look for it close to midnight ;D)

Thanks to Kato for fielding alot of the questions for me, things have been exceptionally crazy this year.  To answer some of the questions I scrolled thru...

-  You will not be able to wear any sharp/hard shoes on the mats, so you might want to take this into consideration, possibly bring some slippers or socks.

-  You need to be careful with any props/weapons/projectiles.  We will go over it during the pre-meet, but if another piece objects to your prop, you will not be allowed to use it during the match, just an fyi

I'm sure there was something else, but I can't remember at the moment :)

Anyway, keep an eye out for the posting.. I will figure out the teams over the next couple of days (although, it doesn't look like it's going to be good vs evil.. sigh... once again, so close :()

OK so I have a friend how is willing to let us borrow her chess board for the chess masters.
The pieces all are flat and shaped to indecate piece and have slots for photos/names so we can match them to the characters and make it easier for the chess masters to move players.

As a former chess master I'd find this incrediably helpfull.

Would this be something we'd want?

Jaki will post the teams as soon as she's done with them. All the staffers, and especially the directors have been working nearly non-stop on convention stuff for the past couple of weeks, plus having to deal with their normal lives and work.

Just try to be patient, it will be posted when its posted.

I don't think anyone is sincerely that impatient right now. I mean, we all understand how busy everyone is. Myself, I could even wait a couple more days if I had to. This little impatience circle is just our annual way of showing how excited we are! x333 GO JAKI YOU ARE AMAZING EVEN IF IT TAKES YOU EXTRA TIME TO FINISH!~

I haven't read/watched naruto in over a year O_o

OK so I have a friend how is willing to let us borrow her chess board for the chess masters.
The pieces all are flat and shaped to indecate piece and have slots for photos/names so we can match them to the characters and make it easier for the chess masters to move players.

As a former chess master I'd find this incrediably helpfull.

Would this be something we'd want?

OK there was some miscommunication, this chess board doesn't exist. and thus won't be available for this year.
I will bring sketches for my ideas on how I'd construct it to the premeet or someother time of choosing.
