3. You can also signup to a team on the day by going to the reg desk in the cosplay zone, picking a team from a list of those accepting members and then turning up for the event!
4. Email or post in here asking for a team and we will find one for you.
HOW TO REGISTER A TEAM
- Teams need to be 10 people or over, but can be as large as they like!
- If you have less than ten members, make a topic in this forum about your team to get more members - or ask your friends!
- Cosplay isn't mandatory, but advised.
- All teams must be created beforehand.
- We suggest that each team makes their own topic in this forum to help gain members (crucially to get your ten minimum).
- On the day individual cosplayers (ie: anyone) is allowed to signup to join one of the "open" teams. You can do this at the Cosplay Zone at the registration desk.
To enter your team, please fill out this form and post it in this topic -
Team Members: If you have less than ten members, you can still signup, but your team will automatically be open and we'll give you extra members.
Cosplay/Non-Cosplay: Is your team cosplay or non-cosplay orientated?
Open/Closed: Open teams allow anyone to signup and join them either beforehand or on the day (we will advertise your team for you in updates). Closed teams aren't advertised but it's entirely up to that team if they want more members or not.
Please note that these events are subject to change and are only here to give you an idea of what will happen on the day...
INSIDE ON STAGE
Speed Eating - Representatives from each team battle it out to see who can eat certain types of food, ranging from pocky and trifle to dry weetabix and crackers, the fastest! The team with the most points win.
Red Light Green Light - Based on the game of the same name found in Ouran, this is a play on the famous childhood game whereby people attempt to sneak up on someone facing a wall without being seen (when the red light is on). For comedic effect, stupid and annoying rules will be added throughout the game to make it harder for our competitors!
Giant Twister Tournament - Select teams battle it out on the classic twister matt, with devilishly evil rules added in to make sure things run smoothly - such as a time limit!
Hot Potato Time Bomb - Everyone sits down in a circle and passes the "hot potato time bomb" around - every time the music stops, the person holding the potato is out. This game continues until only one team is remaining, and they are the winner! There may be secretly added twists on the day...
Dizzy Dinosaurs Assault Course - Finally! The last stretch is in sight! What's this? Only a simple obstacle course? Not quite. You must run the course WHILE DIZZY!
Prizes - Prizes are given out, thanks given to organisers then to competitors, a
group photo is taken and the equipment is packed away.
Hula-Hooping - Yup, you heard it right. Teams will face their fears of public pelvic thrusting as they attempt to last the longest spinning hoops - on stage!
Musical Chairs - Brought back to life with anime classics and a couple of evil new rules, this party game is back to haunt the teams with a vengeance.
Talent Show - While the other team members have been making fools of themselves, the rest has been preparing an epic display of talent to throw away our judges! Anything which isn't dangerous or illegal is allowed here - but make sure that it's unique and amazing or your team won't win!
Team-Legged Race - This cosplay picnic classic is being brought back with a twist. After a quick warm-up session with couples to decide which teams go through to the grand finale, a larger number of people will be tied together and attempt to beat the other team! Is it even possible? :XD:
British Bulldog - Touch only to avoid injuries, this game involves attempting to run past people attempting to catch you, multiple times.
Prizes - Prizes are given out for the winners and overall champions, thanks given to organisers then to competitors, a group photo is taken and the equipment is packed away.
The following groups shall be competing in the Olympics!
