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


Thanks I did find out that its meant to last about 15 minutes. So I can definatly take part. Looking forward to seeing all those who will be taking part.

I believe I haven't posted here yet .__.
But raaawr I shall be there [hopefully]. I'm still unsure who to go as though, I can either wear Garnet or Moogle - It depends if Garnet still fits me or not and if I can find all the accessories, yes I tend to lose pieces of cosplay easily... With Moogle I don't have to worry about anything, but I will be seriously hot D'8

Meeeh I have 4 days to decide, it's just either an ironing or hunting job for both! ^_^

The record is now 377 people.

Somewhere around 400-500 would be great and hopefully that will be enough until the book is published.

I did wonder what the currant record was. I did hear somewhere that it was 80 and thought that can't be right. Not with some of the iszes of some of the US events.

Initially it was was 80 people. A record didn't exist until March 18th 2008 when said 80 people gathered. It was a promo for the Gamers Edition of the book. It was arranged only a week in advance.

There was an attempt in America with 697 but for some reason it hasn't been recognised. Of course, if 700 people aren't there they won't stop bitching.

Yay! Tbh I saw so many more game cosplayers inside that I don't think realised this was going on. If only it could've been announced on a PA throughout the morning or something we could've got more.

I actually left the que to register for the record >_< I got my ticket a couple hours later after I had finished photoshoots and the que had died down to practically nothing.

Everyone had to register by writing a big sign that had our names, the character and the game their from on it. Then we had hold that sign for a photo (which a think was for admin purposes).

Yay we did it ^_^ I was there as Rasler from FFXII. It really shoul dhave been announced inside though as i saw quite a few people later who i couldn't recall seeing at the event.


27 Oct 2008 - 17:337237
I am in there! as Tifa from FF7.

But you can't see me as I'm just to the left of the picture. But that's okay. They took a photo of me holding out my name, character's name, and they also took one of me with the certificate - so that's good

Thanks to Amy-Lou for getting one of those with my camera, too!

I love how they got GunstarVixen at the front of this one - her LeBlanc is such a fantastic costume and she wears it so well ... I'm sure many people would agree with that

Yeah I think so. I saw a Pyramid head with a sign too. I happened to mention it to the Grim Fandango guy as well.


I would like to see if we could do it better in May or at least some time next year.

Well done everyone, you did it
And I'm sure we can go even higher in the future.

The guys from London Games Festival who arranged this record attempt have asked me to pass on there thanks to everyone who took part.

Go UK cosplay!

From the Nintendo website:

"And it is yet another chance for women to degrade themselves in skimpy clothing! Hurrah! "

Omg how rude! And kinda a old-fashioned view. Degrading? Pffttt.
Those people on the Nintendo forums aren't very nice. Going on saying how we weren't real Nintendo fans & we're "losers" or something. We covered ALL games not ones just made by Nintendo. Idiots.
