Hi Guys, this is Rossmonster from Leaders Cosplay!
Some of you may remember us, we started the awesome game of Red Rover in May so we've decided to officialy host it again this October! That, and we also thought we might try organise a game of Cosplay Chess on one of the days and then hopefully turn it into an annual event!So, first things first, RED ROVER
We’ll be having it both days this time as its going to be a lot cooler than it was in May, also the times will be arranged around any major photo shoots and masquerades to be as convenient as possible. They will defiantly start by at least 12 so as to give people time to wonder round the expo in the morning. We’re playing Red Rover, Bulldog and Corners, plus any other good playground games you can think of!
The games are being organised by the Cosplay group The Leaders who were the ones who started it last time, there should be at least one leader on the field at anytime so if you have any suggestions for games or you’ve brought a ball or something for fun we’ll be happy to round up some players and scare away any footballers who may be competing for the green. We’ll all be in original cosplay on the Saturday (think ANBU but with an Akatsuki twist) so if you can’t find the field or if you know there’s a major photo shoot going on please ask us and we’ll be happy to help! But please, help us by not organising a all day tea party in the middle of the field, or by organising your own massive game or Red Rover alongside us. We want this to be as fun and easy as possible, and of course we’ll be arranging around the nerf war and other games going on, but work with us people.
And finally, last but not least a few final points. The games we’ll be playing are rough and will probably involve running and maybe a bit of tackling. If your coming in a very delicate cosplay, or are worried about grass stains and the like DON’T PLAY. There will obviously be a few games that wont involve running and tackling so we’d suggest you stick to those. No one wants a ripped skirt before a masquerade or photo shoot! Also, BRING WATER! Or money, your bound to get thirsty and we all know how the vendors inside the expo charge. If you forget or run out, there is a small mini-mart down the road from the green that we’ll be happy to show you so you can buy cheaper drinks.
So, if your free drop by! There’s no registration needed and we’ll be there pretty much all day! So come say hi, get a few videos and help us to make this Red Rover the best!

(also we found photos of the red rover, corners, bull dog matches AND the massive pile-up when a bunch of one peice cosplayers wandered into the middle of our match http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=ho ... 4923091052
may they rest in peices)Now we have COSPLAY CHESS
For the chess game, we thought Evil vs. Good would be a cool theme for this, so as an example you would have Akatsuki members on the evil side, and Naruto, Hinata, Sakura etc. on the good side!
We'll need 32 players to be chess pieces, this year Leaders Cosplay are coming as Akatsuki members so we'll be taking up a few places on the evil side. This is open to all cosplayers, not just Naruto ones so any Deathnote, Bleach, One Piece *shudder* etc. cosplayers are welcome. Any other groups will be welcomed with open arms.
I will be reffing the match but we'll also need two cosplayers to act as the players for Team Evil and Team Good to control them on the board. so in total we'll need around 34 players. You don't need to sign up, just keep an eye out for updates on this topic and for the game at the expo. We'll be carrying a sign round before the event to encourage more players.
The board is being supplied by Leaders Cosplay and will either be set up at the entrance to the expo in the plaza, or down the steps where the grass banks are.
So, i know this has been a dreadfully long post
, but please read and join us for a few games! We may have a few chess matches with Pirates vs. Ninja, or Girls vs. Boys, so don't worry if you arrive late for the first one.UPDATE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WN--WnfQUQc
