2011 Cosplay Activity Schedule!
« on: August 30, 2011, 05:58:54 pm »
Now that the schedule has been generated, it's time to let you know when to be where for cosplay event. I've already emailed this to the cosplay participants at the email address used on the entry form, however since I KNOW there are some procrastinators out there, and  currently (30 August, 6PM) we have 18 skits and 28 costume entries (costumes entered as a group count as one entry) signed up, there is still room for additional entries – we're hoping for a record number of skits so we can extend and expand the Cosplay event! 
 
In addition to Cosplay, the Main Events will have many other events during the day, so our schedule is not as open as it traditionally has been. Please be sure to keep this schedule handy so you know where to go and when.

Notes for each event are included in description:
=========================================================
When: 21:30-22:30 SATURDAY (yes, 930PM-1030PM SATURDAY)
Where: Panel 3 “Hemlock” in HILTON   
What: Cosplay pre-meeting
Who: At least ONE member of each group MUST check in.
Why: Final Deadline for all entries / changes; assign timeslots for tech rehearsal and costume judging; ask Cosplay staff questions; hear any last-minute announcements; officially check-in as a participant.
           - PLEASE arrive on time to reduce chaos and staff stress.
           - Costumes NOT required at this meeting
Note: looks like the room will be empty from 9-930 (just before meeting) .
=========================================================
When: 07:30-10:30 Sunday
Where: Main Events Room
What: Cosplay technical rehearsal
Who: ALL skit entrants and walk-ons. (Sorry, this is the only time that we could get – be glad it wasn’t set for 5AM-8AM. Write programming@kumoricon.org if you have comments regarding schedule.)
   - Walk-ons will walk across the stage once each to get a feel for the size of the stage and runway, and to determine when and where to pose.  Walk-ons will be the first time slot – 07:30 to about 08:00.  Costumes NOT required at this meeting. If your costume has a mask, long train, or shoes vastly different from your usual footwear, you should wear those items to "test" how difficult it will be to get on/off stage in the costume.
   - Skit entrants. Please arrive on time. This is a technical walk-through to help coordinate ninja assistance, lighting, music, etc., not a full rehearsal, so you will only be on stage long enough to test your audio and confirm technical queues. You can rehearse elsewhere afterward. Time slots will be assigned at the Cosplay Pre-meeting.
   - You may stay or leave at your discretion, however if you miss your turn, your group will be disqualified. (Besides, if you stay, you can see the other acts)
=========================================================
When: 1100 - 1530 Sunday
Where:  Panel 4 – Cedar - HILTON
What: Costume Workmanship judging.
   - Be sure to arrive at least 10 –15 minutes prior to your scheduled time slot – if we are running ahead of time, we may pull you in sooner.
   - Costumes REQUIRED (duh).
   - Bring your costume documentation (you will keep it with your possessions so we don't accidentally lose or damage it)

=========================================================
When: 1730 Sunday (5:30 PM)
Where: Panel 1 – Discovery A- HILTON (Cosplay Green Room)
Who:  All entrants must be present in Green Room.
What: Preparation to go on stage –  NOTE: Anime Jeopardy IV will be in that room until 5:30...curtain time is 6PM
Costumes REQUIRED (duh). 
We were PROMISED a video feed into Green Room (and they promised they actually would record it this time).
We've been on time for the past 3 years running  :)

=========================================================
When: 1800 Sunday (6 PM – 8:30 PM)
What: Cosplay Contest
            - Follow directions of Green Room "Mom," cosplayer wranglers, and stage crew for when and how to head to the stage for your act.
            - After you act is over, you may either find a seat in the main events hall or return to the Green Room to hang out or watch the rest of the competition on the video feed.

?? PM Sunday - "Half-time Show" and Winner announcements
            After Cosplay Competition ends, The Anime Hunters will put on a special skit to entertain the audience while the judges compile the results and determine winners. Please stick around for that since it's expected to be good. As soon as the judges are finished deciding (they're rather efficient!!), they'll announce the results and call the winners up on stage to take a bow*.

  * Prizes will be available in the programming suite starting a few hours after the winners are announced. (Winners receive certificates and will be allowed to CHOOSE THEIR OWN PRIZES from the selection of prize packets using the “Kumori cash” the receive. Group members may wish to combine their “Kumori cash” to upgrade their prize choices).

For the judging & rehearsal, you may leave after you've had your turn.  :)

I'll let people know when it's time to leave the pre-meeting (basically, once I've provided certain basic info, including the time that you have to show up for  tech rehearsal & costume judging, everyone except those who have more questions can escape)
