Want to see your favorite characters battle it out with each other? Well with Cosplay Human Chess, anything is possible. No one knows what will happen as two chess players maneuver cosplayer pieces across a giant chessboard.

How does Cosplay Human Chess work? In ordinary Human Chess, thirty-two participants act out the parts of chess pieces on a giant board as two players direct from above. Cosplay Human Chess is the same, except that all the pieces are in costume, and act out their moves as their characters would. Only the two main players need chess experience.

Special Requirements
To participate on the board in Cosplay Human Chess, you must be in costume as anime/manga/video game characters Priority is given to well-known characters from popular series and to multiple characters from the same series. Pre-Registration is required for those actually participating in the event as chess pieces. The registration deadline for this event is June 5!
