As well as donating, me and my friend are being sponsored for going around in cosplay all day on saturday to raise money for the appeal.
I just hope we can raise a lot to help...

It's awful and terrible what's happening in Japan. Of course, Japan is not the only country right now with problems and with people dying. However, I guess most Cosplayers feel close to Japan for the hobby came from Japan, we cosplay from japanese anime,manga and games. And of course, one main aspect in my eyes, is the fact that there are a lot of cameras in japan. We see all of this while it is happening. That way the catastrophy comes closer, is kinda.. more real. More touching.

For me, I do have a friend in Japan, who is fortunately safe. But I really really really hope that the worst is not going to happen, that they will be able to somehow control the nuclear plants.

Just been poking at that link - how do I donate items? Do I just bring them to the con?


Hallo Pez.

I suggest contacting Scowny. I seem to have taken charge of promoting the auction, but Scowny seems to be your man for donations to the auction. He probabbly has some epic database or something.

If you have an account on the forum, PMing scowny is the best bet. Or:



I'll update info about who to contact and all that soon. Were clarifying whos doing what for this at the moment. I've just gone all "plaster it everywhere!"

Hi everyone,

I don't know if this link has been posted already, (nothing appareared on the search tool), but here's a very good idea for cosplayers who wish to get involved a bit more into what's happening in Japan.

A smile doesnt cost us anything, but it might be a huge help for people fighting there.

Thank you
Hello.
I'm Japanese cosplayer.
My city is all right.

Thank you for the message to Japan.
Japan is very serious now.
Dead and missing person is 10000 people or more.
And The nuclear power plant is very dangerous.

I'm so sad....

Please PRAY FOR JAPAN.

Thank you.

Quote NixieThePixie:
And they had an atom bomb dropped on them for their troubles.

Correction: TWO atom bombs. Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Anyone saying they deserve it is obviously an idiot. Or American.


Yea, my mum pointed that out to me - we only studied Hiroshima in school though, so that's the one that really sticks in my head.


I think what really puts a point across is that the majority of people saying "it's karma for Pearl Harbour" are young - they weren't even around at the time of the attack. My Scottish granny (who's not american but who's husband - my granddad - was killed in a kamikazi attack) has sent money out in aid. She understands it was in a war environment, as does my English Grandpa who was part of WW2 (in fact, he has a bigger issue with the atom bombs than with anything Japan did in the war). I'm pretty sure if you chat to any American war veterans and they'd agree that it was a war situation.

A friend put on Facebook that made me smile;
"If America truly believes that the disasters in Japan are karma, then who knows what's coming there way."

The two Japanese girls who I live with have organised a party/dinner tonight to try to raise money. They feel such a desperate need to help their friends and family at home, and the methodical way that the Japanese students across campus are motivating themselves to help their family at home is truely inspirational.

On the subject of idiots making stupid comments; ignore them, they're a loud but small minority.

The American exchange students in my hall were the very first to go an comfort the Japanese students here.

An update on me and my friend's sponsored 'Dress Up in Bath' event type thing:
We've now raised at least £70 between us, and there's still more sponsership on the way! I'm so happy that people have been so generous with their donations~
