Children in need - sponsored cosplay?
What do you think to the idea of having a charity event of some sort in london to raise money for children in need? it would get cosplay on tv i would think if we were to tell the BBC studio's... and it'd be a great way to put out costumes to good use! ^_^
the only problem is... CIN is the month after expo...

is this a good idea?
or not? xD

I think this is a great idea

its a good idea but the childeren in need date is a friday and people might not be able to get outta work to do it and school kids like me will have skewl in the way.

If you did it the following day lots of people wouldnt bother donating seeing as childeren in need would be seen as over for another year.

It wouldnt really matter if it was just a month after expo because people could just wear old costumes for it ^^

but hey this is all just my opionion. xD

I'd totally do this! we can be on Tee-veee!

how would we raise money though? get randoms to give us money? do a sponsered mass Hare Hare Yukai? XD

it'd give me a chance to put an old cosplay to use! ^^

count me in Takk!

yeah but the CIN program doesn't start until like 7 or something. that's enough time to get to london. if we get the sponser forms a week in advance or whatever that's like all the money sorted except for what we might get during the evening....

Eep!
Thankyou for your replys! ^_^

Hexi: YES PLEASE, i think im gonna need all the help i can get LOL.

and i was thinking to do it the sunday befor CIN, that way, its like sunday so school pplz [like me... xD] will be able to make it, and people that work could make it to. ^_^


But... theres one other thing, is london a good idea? or would some were like oxford be better seeing as its more central?

Sounds like a great idea, but the main problem is getting an angle of why we should be sponsered for something.

cause its for a good cause! ^_^
so... sponser a cosplayer to say... do that caramell dansen, and ask for so much money per minnuet they last?

and whilst were doing that have a bucket to shake! xD

also, depending were we hold it, [oxford or london people, or somewere else?]
i should be able to contact the BBC oxford or what ever if it gose ahead and then might be able to get the TV people involved depending how many people get involved. :]

Could do a sponsored walk in cosplay through London centre?


13 Oct 2008 - 11:176882
That sounds like a good idea- cosplays are in general quite hard to walk in and embarrassing to wear in front of the general public, so I can see that going down well.

Hurm... thats a good idea, but alot of cosplayers wouldnt do it, also thats gonna rely on weather and as well, the younger cosplayer's proberly wouldnt be alowed...


ALSO!
its like to late to organise this for CIN,
But there is always red nose day :]

I generally stroll round Manchester in one of my cosplays so I'm up for anything XD
My only concern is finding people to sponsor me @_@
Also I have work sat/suns though I may be able to get them off if Im given enough notice

Mmm. most people do stroll in there costumes from time to time, but the thing is, if were going to walk around london in costume, if it rains, is to hot, is to cold, some one falls over, theres alot to concider with that, also if we WERE to get a Tv crew involved, then it would be harder to convince them to come as were going to be walking around, were as if were in one place for the whole thing, were more noticable. ^___________^


i also think we should leave this till red nose day, as that gives us more time to organise it, and more notice for people who want to come to get time of work and money together for transport :3

It also gives us more ideas for places to hold it [i sugest some were fairly central] and more ideas to get sponcers! ^_^
