Cosplay Trick or Treat *Sunday Night* (Registered)

Postby LadyLaraCroft on Tue Jun 08, 2010 11:26 am

So, basically, as you all know, this expo is on halloween, so trick or treating is a must, but if you want to do so, then I have made a few rules for you all:

If all goes well, I will organise this next October, no matter if its on halloween or not.

How this will work:
At 9:30, put the poster outside your door and send half of the occupants out to do some trick or treating. The other half stays in the room and waits for others coming to their door for treats.
At 10:15, you swap jobs between those trick or treating and those in the room.
Repeat until 11:00, when everything must stop to allow for nomming sweets and sleep :)

If you don't want to go out, just put a poster up and let people come to you, but no reversing and just going out trick or treating.

Cosplay isn't neccasary, but badges and posters most certainly are!
Don't be afraid to ask to see the badge or wristband, we don't want any gatecrashers or chavs joining in.

LINK TO POSTER AND BADGE! You must use these and no others.

Badge: http://i379.photobucket.com/albums/oo233/larasbestm8/ctotbadge.jpg

Badge: http://i379.photobucket.com/albums/oo233/larasbestm8/ctotbadgebw.jpg
(Just stick a safety pin on the back of the badge.)

Time:
9:30pm-11:00pm

Place
PTI, Ibis and Custom House

Rules:
* You may only knock on doors with the designated poster on.
* People knocking on doors must either: still have wristband from expo on, or a designated badge.
* You must stay in your own hotel. We're trying to keep hotel receptions clear for the general public.
* You MUST be quiet as possible, there are members of the general public there aswell.
* You MUST stop and take down your poster at 11:00, no exceptions. I have friends in each hotel who will be checking.
* You MUST swap jobs at 10:15.
* Everyone MUST have a turn, otherwise its unfair.
* Sweets ONLY, no money or anything else.
* DO NOT give ANYTHING to those without a badge or wristband.
* You can only join in someone else's hotel trick or treat if you have friends staying there and you go around with them.
* NO CARRYING WEAPONS, REAL OR FAKE. (Wands are ok, nothing bigger than 1m though.)
* NO TRICKS, NO PRANKS, NO RUNNING, NO BANGING, NO SHOUTING.

TO ALL PEOPLE PLANNING ON ATTENDING
Some hotels have expressed concern over health and safety. For god's sake, be sensible. Common sense is not old fashioned.
PTI have also asked for the event to be an 'invisible event', i.e. no members of the public know what's going on. So, keep quiet and try not to clutter up corridors and don't run around acting like you've just drunk 12 cans of red bull in a row. Pleeeeeeeeeeease. We want to be on their good side...

For those unable to go to the event
I will be outside the excel centre at 9:00 with a bowl (or two) of sweets to give out. You may also be able to find me giving out sweets during the day.
Sorry, but any actual cosplay trick or treaters can't have any from the night give-out, its for those who can't go to the event only, just so that everyone gets some sweets!

Look out for a girl in the pumpkin/bat outfit on the poster!

Sounds like a cool idea. Only problem i can see is that there'll probably only be about 6 ish rooms doing it and they will be spread across a few hotels...So you'll be trudging from hotel to hotel, searching all the rooms, finding one or two and then moving on.

I thought this sounded quite a well organised idea (of course, I would doubt half an hour each would be long enough), my only problem being that there should be a way people who don't want to go out roaming the corridors can still leave a sign to say they welcome trick or treaters (we often have a huge stash of lollies on hand for other cosplayers, but aren't really trick or treat people).
My sister is being really childish about this, as she was going to do it spontaniously, but now she thinks the surprise is ruined so she doesn't want to do it anymore. I suspect she's not the only one, but I personally prefer your approach.
Hope it goes well.

This sounds like a good idea, and it's clear you've actaully thought about this, rather then the usual 'HAY GUISE LETS GO TRICK OR TREATAN'
I'd take part but I'm in custom house :(

Definitely a better idea than just randomly trudging around. Good luck with making it happen.

okay...i LOVE this idea~ i wanted to go random trick and treating in the hotels...when i realised, there will be regular people there too....they would most likely not be pleased me knocking at they're door at night begging for candeh xDD

I like the organisation for this too~ shows it could actually work xD
might be nice for a longer time gap though? this type of thing would always be more fun if it went on for a bit longerr xD even just half an hour~ :D

Added 15 minutes to each half of event due to people asking for more time.
If I add anymore, I fear people may run out of rooms and end up hanging round before the swap.

Did you ever think about the Premier Inn east of the ExCeL center? Im'a be stayin' there fff. I WANNA GO.

But wouldn't it be hard work since we have to go all around the ExCeL hotels only to find a couple of rooms actually doing this? Sure, it's a good idea but I think you actually need to know what people like to participate in this because I'd hate to see your hard work goto waste. I get the feeling I'll be in a huge bulky fursuit knocking at people's hotel rooms. HEY GUYS CANDY FOR ME?

Premier Inn is the PTI, if I remember correctly, Premier Travel Inn. Correct me if I'm wrong, I've only every stayed in the Ibis.

Oh yes, sorry! I thought it was something completely different. My mistake. Again, good luck with all this. :3
