World Record Attempt at Expo: The Gaming World Needs You!
Attention all gaming fans! To mark the launch of the UK’s biggest gaming extravaganza, the London Games Festival, a world record attempt to have the largest gathering of people dressed up as video game characters is occurring on 25 October at the London ExCel centre!

Hosted on the opening day of the London MCM Expo, this is the ultimate chance to prove your gaming credentials and show the world how much of a fan you really are! With the current record a measly 80 people, get out and buff your World of Warcraft armor, equip those Lara Croft dual pistols and brush that Guitar Hero mullet wig and get on down to the ExCel to strut your stuff and become a part of gaming history.

Date: 25 October 2008
Time: 12:30
Location:
On the stairs, outside the entrance of the ExCel Centre
MCM Expo, ExCeL London,
One Western Gateway,
Royal Victoria Dock, London. E16 1XL

Key Guidelines:
1. All participants must be wearing costumes representing characters from video games
2. Characters from other media such as films, television, books and comics are acceptable; however these must have featured in video games before any subsequent appearances in other media. For example: a. Sonic the Hedgehog first appeared in a video game in 1991, prior to subsequent television and comic book appearances; therefore Sonic qualifies for the attempt b. Batman first featured as a comic book character in 1939, prior to his first appearance as a video game character in 1986; therefore Batman does not qualify.

WoW was originally a book/comic series and not a game.
But, whatever.
I'm sure the record counters wont care 8D

Well...

Technically there was an X-Men Arcade game that featured Gambit and Rogue so I think me and Kelly can enter.

Sounds awesome. Much more sensible to host it at something like Expo rather than a random Tuesday in London during the middle of the day. XD

Unfortunately the rules are quite specific.
Only characters that first appeared in video games before any other media count.

As this is for an official record attempt the entries will be scutinised and assesed by an independant adjudicator.

Guh! I really want to do this with our soul calibur group, but we can't get changed until later because 1) it takes ages to do 2) one of the characters is a surprise and 3) Nightmare only lasts a couple of hours in his suit before fainting.. and the masquarade isn't until hours later.

Damn you all! Do it later!

Hurm...

Would a vocaloid count as a game charature? >___<
if not, ill get my etna cosplay together. xD


15 Oct 2008 - 21:006931
Awesome I remember wishing the last attempt wasn't held at such a awkward day/time. Expo is the perfect place to get as many people.

My Rinoa will be part of a new record yay =D

Whoops I totally misread the rule about the video game characters. I thought it said provided they appeared as video game characters at some point they were allowed.

That'll teach me for for skim reading. XD

Any idea how long this record attempt will last? I have a privite photo shoot booked at 1.30. I will be in my Sephiroth so I would love to take part.

Not too sure. It should take much longer than an hour at the most.
