Fanime is fast approaching folks, and the One Piece gathering is being well-planned as we speak. This year's gathering will be hosted by junkeemunky, so hopefully junkee will be able to keep us informed in this thread as well.
As I stated in the title, this year, Suupaa Kaizoku Cosplay is proud to bring the Davy Back Fight Games to Fanime for the first time ever this year! With our debut of the game last year, we're still working out some of the kinks for the games, but it was pretty well received by the cosplayers. We hope that this year will be bigger and more fun. We're also going to still repeat the games at Anime Expo this year as well, so yes, we'll be hosting the DBF twice a year now. And because we're cheap and have to pay out of our own pockets, prizes will be the same at both conventions.
The DBF games will be held a half hour before the gathering, so at 1:00 pm. And this time, we'll strictly limit the participants to those who are actually there on time. At AX 09, there were a few people who sneaked in after we started, and while I allowed some of them to join, others just came at the end to claim the prizes. This year, we'll separate the participants from the onlookers more visually. Also, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO COSPLAY TO PLAY! Whether you're a photographer, friend of an OP cosplayer, or just a regular fan, we welcome all (as long as you're on time). So if you're ready to have some fun with fellow OP fans, come to the gathering early to play! prize sponsor TBD
Lastly, two members of Suupaa Kaizoku Cosplay will actually have an artist alley table this year – hanshi and passbyguy will share a table. I'll actually hang out there for a while for the other two games we debuted at AX: Trivia Contest and OP Cosplay-themed Scavenger Hunt. I figure it'll be easier to find me for these games when you know where I am.
REMEMBER– DAVY BACK FIGHT GAMES AT 1:00 PM; COSPLAY GATHERING AT 1:30 PM
