2008 Cosplay Chess: Rules & Sign-Up
« on: June 08, 2008, 06:51:12 pm »
Rules and sign-up form for this year's Cosplay Chess are available here.

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.
    * 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.

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.

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 ^^;;;

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.

If ya wanna be a chess master, be ready to entertain the crowd. Thankfully, we had two wonderful chess masters to start off this tradition last year. I can't wait to come back this year ^.^

If, and only if I were to go as The Gate of Truth from Fullmetal Alchemist...I would love to eat an Edward if there is one participating.

I'm probably too late to sign up, though, and get a good spot.

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 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...

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...
I have like this thing and I might drag my brother out to take a picture of my in my Haruhi cosplay since I haven't gone to wig land yet T_T

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.

Are you having someone make it for you? I love making costumes. I'm getting good in my opinion. I'm not one for improve so I am not sure if I am going to apply or not. I get really nervous in front of large crowds.

"Yeah, Limebarb is making our costumes, and I'm very excited! We have been wanting to cosplay Lina and Gourry for forever." X3

"I wish I could make cosplay/sow - but I would first need to learn how to use a needle/thread, or a sowing machine." @_@

...*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* ;)

Nagato would be glorious sugarlat! But I feel kind of twitchy that as one potential Haruhi cosplayer exits the fray another eneters  :D

Maybe if everyone's all bent on being Haruhi I could go as Kyonko  ;)

Hey... If I had my Trinity Blood nun done and I was allowed to participate, what are the rules on a tiny bit of audience participation? 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.

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

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.
