CLAMP no Kiseki 2012
Either for May, Manchester or October. Please mention your preferance in your first post.

I know this is a bit 'in advance' but time does fly and this gives us opportunity to conjure up ideas in time to practice them XD

For those that don't know CLAMP no Kiseki compromised 12 cross-over manga volumes I think that were co-released with little chess pieces of the characters where black and white mokonas comprised the pawns.

After the success and enjoyment of the CLAMP in 3D LAND group we're calling up all you CLAMP lovers to help with our next project 8D

Here are the characters by volume, by piece and by people that have expressed intrest. Those with n/a beside them didn't make it into the physical set so have no official piece listing.

Volume 1 http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p227/_TalesFreak_/CLAMP%20no%20Kiseki/clampnk9.jpg

Sakura - White Queen charlieparrot
Tomoyo - White Queen Hannah-Kiwii

Volume 2 http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p227/_TalesFreak_/CLAMP%20no%20Kiseki/clampnok2.jpg

Su - Black Rook - amayhun
Ran - n/a

Volume 3 http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p227/_TalesFreak_/CLAMP%20no%20Kiseki/clampnk5.jpg

Subaru - White Bishop - Fishyfins
Hokuto - n/a

Volume 4 http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p227/_TalesFreak_/CLAMP%20no%20Kiseki/clampnk12.jpg

Hikaru - White Knight - Ichigo-Chan
Misaki - White Rook - angelic-cat15

Volume 5 http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p227/_TalesFreak_/CLAMP%20no%20Kiseki/clampnk6.jpg

Nokoru - Black Knight
Suoh - n/a navigatorxnami
Akira - White Knight

Volume 6 http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p227/_TalesFreak_/CLAMP%20no%20Kiseki/clampnk8.jpg

Ashura - Black Rook
Dark Ashura - Black Rook

Volume 7 http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p227/_TalesFreak_/CLAMP%20no%20Kiseki/clampnk10.jpg

Kohaku - White Bishop - blackorcid
Chi - White Rook - street-angel

Volume 8 http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p227/_TalesFreak_/CLAMP%20no%20Kiseki/clampnk4.jpg

Kamui - Black King - hisuiryu
Fuma - Black King vallon

Volume 9 http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p227/_TalesFreak_/CLAMP%20no%20Kiseki/clampnk.jpg

Miyuki - White Bishop Reen
Seishirō - Black Bishop blackorchid's friend

Volume 10 http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p227/_TalesFreak_/CLAMP%20no%20Kiseki/clampnk11.jpg

Yuko - Black Queen Frederica_la_Noir
Watanuki - Black Bishop - Lady Bahamut

Volume 11 http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p227/_TalesFreak_/CLAMP%20no%20Kiseki/clampnk3.jpg

Kurogane - Black Knight
Fay - Black Bishop - Sakurastar123

Volume 12 http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p227/_TalesFreak_/CLAMP%20no%20Kiseki/clampnk7.jpg

Syaoran - White King - KiraraYumi
Kobato - n/a - TheEmoEmu

These are their pieces as they were released in the chess set. And this is how they work out on a chess board



Yes there are some doubles, two white queens, two black kings and 4 bishops per side. Personally I'd have thought Clow Reed would make a better black king than either of X's men but hey, wasn't my call.

So to get a full board we'd need a minimum of 16 people. But that's if we wanted to push the chess team.

Full group of all twelve covers would mean 25 people.

Personally I think 16 people would be more than enough, there were 13 of us on stage in 3D LAND :o and we nearly broke the expo mentally

Hello shiny new thread! ='D I hope you don't mind if I blemish it with a quote post from the other one, since this is Kiseki related~

Ha, edit already. Manchester for me! =D

Quote CrystalNeko:

OTL I seriously need to re-read Tokyo Babylon (it's been yeaaaaaars since I've read the first couple of volumes ;; ) but yes I will be Hokuto if there's a Subaru 8D

... I'll re-read before making a final decision though, I haaaate cosplaying characters I don't know (or in this case, CAN'T REMEMBER FFFFFF)

I actually love Ashura's designs. But I can't bring myself to make millions of accessories again OTLLLL. IT'LL KILL ME ON THE INSIDE.
We have plenty of time to choose and read up! (I could do with learning more about Subaru too, haaaa) As much as I don't like the color scheme for the Sumeragis, I think I'd just have to cosplay Subaru if you did Hokuto. I cannot pass up this chance! D8
...But Syaoran looks amazing as the king and that cape.....graaaaaah! xD

Which Ashura are you looking at? Older version?

I'd prefer May or October :3

@KiraraYumi: XDDD I'm sorry for conflicting your decisions!!!!
And yeah, dark Ashura. I reeeeally like little Ashura but it would look so wrong on my body shape, I've got hips, HIPS! ;A;
I'd only consider little Ashura if I had a Dark Ashura with me x'D


03 Jun 2011 - 22:3458524
Haha, it's all good! Like I said, ages to decide! x3 I'll keep hold of Syaoran for now though because I'm sure I'd mope if someone else beat me to him in my indecision...and I don't want to mope.

I hate the hips problem with crossplaying! xD
I really like both Ashura's designs too, I hope they get cosplayed. I hope this catches more people's interest first and foremost though! 8D

Since everyone else is picking two choices for when we do this, May is my second choice~

So very sorely tempted by Kamui, since I had to drop out of the last group ;A; <3 *fails*

I'll talk to my main cosplay partner and see if she's interested in doing this version of Fuuma too, and let you guys know, yeah~? Since I probably wont be able to do it if she cant/if our regular group has other plans 8'D Would be epic to join in and spread some CLAMP love though!

I'll claim Watanuki again for now, but if KiaraYumi switches to Subaru, then I'mma gunna have to stake my claim on Syaoran instead 8D


I would perfer October 2012, personally.

Since some people are having trouble with Manchester I will happily swap to October 2012 as my second choice ^^

I tempted to do Su, can I claim her?
I had to drop out of the last group so I'd love to join this one ^^


04 Jun 2011 - 12:2158572
Oh noes....if it's October...I'll be in Spain D8

....if possible though, since I have no clue how they set up our year abroad, I might say "Screw you, Spain, I'm going to London for 4 days" and make it to October anyway.*fears lonely plane ride* I hope it doesn't come to that, but I'd be so sad if I couldn't be part of this group again Dx

@LadyB: I wish there were two Syaorans in this art, this would have been the perfect oppertunity for us to be original and clone! >:

@amayhun: I was hoping someone would pick Suu! I love her design in this, hope you can join!^^

I won't be able to come to May next year or the year after...caused too much trouble this year interupting my exam revision, and I'm just a first year who's grades don't count yet! I couldn't cope with an expo mid exams again ^^;

But that's just me =)

I prefer May or October Expo because my money is tight at the moment and since I am familiar with the layout, settings and hotels in London I can plan ahead early. I know I can book train tickets for £15 to London in advance and in the worst scenerio that I cannot afford a hotel, then I can always easily travel to London for a day.

If the group is for Manchester, then I'm unsure if I'm able to attend because I will most likely need a hotel and hardly any of my friends are interested to attend Manchester, so it will mean I have to dig out more money for a room by myself. Just wondering if the group is set in stone for Manchester, will there be anyone willing to split a room with me as I am more likely to attend if I can make my arrangements as cheap as possible.

(I'm a tight git)

I was thinking this, as several people have said accomodation cost is the issue...as far as I'm aware hotels in Manchester aren't as expensive as London...(I've never stayed so I'm not sure, but everything else is so much cheaper...eg. food prices in London kill me >< )

I'd have to let people know nearer the event, depending on my accomodation situation at the time (being a student, I have no idea where I will be living in July next year! =D), but I'd be willing to help people out if I can (for free, of course =) )

hey guys and gals!

was really impressed with your 3D land group, really looked good! i really wanted to join in, but sadly, by the time i knew about it, id already sorted all cosplays out for the event.

however, after careful nagging from someone who shall go nameless, i would rather like to join this group

having looked through the artwork, it all looks so good, but the one that strikes my interest the most, is Subaru, the white bishop! if this is ok, then please may i join?

i can do either may or manchester, but i cant say for sure whether ill be going to october 2012, as i may be at uni doing a post-grad...

Have added everyone that has expressed interest so far, these aren't legally binding contracts by any means, everything is very flexbile given how much time we have.

This idea amuses me I can just see someone whipping out a CI print off at a con, yelling that someone's wearing the wrong costume because last year they planned this, and not that...


04 Jun 2011 - 21:1658631
@Fishyfins: YAY! Not only has your choice made my decision easier, now I get to see a Subaru cosplayer! 8D Can't wait!

OH GOD, if there were contracts...! xD

Also, we almost have 16 people...wow. I didn't think this would be as popular as 3D Land! I'm terribly exited already x3
