Pirates vs Ninjas Group

Postby Izzi-chan on Tue Nov 03, 2009 1:07 pm

We had an idea, to put together a meet at May Expo, and stage a huge Pirates vs Ninjas face off.
This was partly inspired by this series of videos (watch them all, it's worth it): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_yBPNwAcsg
This is likely to include a photo shoot of epic proportions (hopefully), and general hilarity. Any ideas are welcome.

The group will run at around 13:00 on BOTH days, meeting at the bottom of the steps. So that you know what to look out for, on the Saturday our group will be Miho from Sin City and Seven Seas Ikuto from Shugo Chara, and on the Sunday Kelsall-L4J will be running the group as SNJ Hidan from Naruto. If this event's registration goes through properly, I believe I'll have some kind of badge to let me run the event, so look out for that too.

Suggestions from others now include a game of 'Capture the flag' between the two sides. Details for this are in curethedarkness' post on page 3. I will be modererating this, hopefully along with a few others, to ensure that no foul play happens.

I cannot stress enough, that NO VIOLENCE will be permitted in the game or any other part of this event. This is not literally going to be an all out battle, just hopefully a little competitive fun. Unless you are a trained stage fighter and you know the person you are interacting is also trained, please refrain from fighting during this event. What you do in your own time is up to you and Excel security.

The idea we have for the group doesn't just mean Naruto and One Piece cosplayers. We want people to come up with truly legendary Pirate and Ninja characters.

Just for some examples, we compiled a list of possible ideas from popular culture:
NINJAS
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
- Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
- The Hand
- GI: JOE
- Pucca
- Cats & Dogs
- Sin City

PIRATES
- Pirates of the Caribbean
- Peter Pan
- Sinbad
- Treasure Island (and Treasure Planet)
- Princess Bride
- Captain Pugwash
- Stardust
- Spongebob Squarepants

And of course, any ideas from games and animes are very welcome.The more original the better, although generic Pirate and Ninja characters are just as useful.
Steampunk Airship Pirates are acceptable.
We also accept Pirate/Ninja versions of other anime/game/film etc characters.
Any suggestions for things to do as part of the meet are welcome too, whether it's stage fighting or photo ideas.

So far we have, for the Pirates:
-Pirate Ikuto (Shugo Chara)- Mini
-Blaze (steampunk OC)- Busty
-Port Royal Axel - Buddy
-The Barrel of Rum - Mini's friend
-Pirate Ezio - RyuuzakiMasato7 (Sat)
-'The Black Wolf Pirates' - curethedarkness & friends
-Ryoko - Ryoko
-Generic pirates - sylastreak
-One Piece group

And for the Ninjas:
-Miho (Sin City)- Bossy (Sat)
-Len Kagamine - Tidus227
-TMNT - Shinikami & friends
-Kitty Pryde - kittydobson (Sun)
-Naruto group

What do you guys think? Anyone want to join? The more the merrier peeps, tell your friends.

It's yet to be decided when this will actually take place. Everything depends on what the response turns out to be (i.e. if everyone says Saturday, then that's when we'll hold it).

Has this been mentioned in the Naruto group thread then? I know it's been mentioned on the one piece thread. Hopefully there will be plenty of people to join in on this.

New plan. First post edited.

Also, been recruiting today and looks like we might get a Dr. McNinja to join us. Really need original and rare cosplays to offset the naruto and one peice masses a bit (not that we hate them).
