Cosplay Chess at Ayacon 2013
Hello ladies and gents!

Ayacon is slowly coming upon us and its time to organise Cosplay Chess this year! Unfortunately Yuka who usually runs these events isn't able to attend this year, so I shall be running it in her place!

For those of you who don't know, Cosplay Chess is a big event that is held on Sunday afternoon before Sunday Night Live (time is still to be decided but so far it is estimated to be set from 1 to 4pm). The event consists of 32 cosplayers who play various chess pieces plus two opponents who will call out moves for the pieces to undertake. When two pieces end up 'in battle' they will perform a small skit with one defeating the other before the game continues.

For examples of these skits please see some of these videos for clips of previous Cosplay Chess events.

Of course this means we need 32 chess pieces! That's where you guys come in! We need volunteers and people willing to be reserves!

I'm looking for a large selection of characters for the game, so the more people who sign up the bigger selection there will be for the event (plus there is still a chance people will drop out, so the more reserves the better!).

I have an open facebook event here for more information and sign ups.

Please sign up to the facebook event with the character you will be cosplaying, what series they are from and your badgename if you are interested so I can keep track of people and numbers!

(Selection is by costume and variety, not first-come-first-served.)

Thank you very much and I look forward to hearing from you all.

I've already signed up, but I really recommend joining in with this! It's really fun as you can get some pretty weird combinations of characters which leads to some very interesting 'battles'

I've signed up as well but definitely worth giving a shot.

Back up pieces are needed as well so do feel free to sign up.
