Cosplayers united for world domination

March 21, 2008

As some of you may remember there was going to be an attempt at putting together as many people dressed in gaming costumes in one place. I managed to set some free time aside and put on my assassin costume to go to the event on the 18th March 2008.

After braving some fierce wind that almost blew me off into the Thames let alone make it very hard to keep the costume in place. I eventually reached the Tate Modern and was greeted by a marching group of people already there. I was slighly confused at first by the sight of people walking up and down while some random photographers snapped happily away at the sight.  For most of the event I was simply hiding at the back which gave me the chance to meet the very lovely NiGHTS lady herself with her other half in Sonic gear. I also started to bump into a lot of familiar faces from around the net which made it all better like Vger dressed as tails from the Sonic Stadium and the great Cat in full Lara Croft mode.

 It was while the group started heading down the bridge for a main photo that I noticed the one and only Mr Richard Jaqques. I couldnt resist going over to say hello and I suppose thank him for all the stellar gaming music he composed! After this  we were instructed to go take some photos on a Sun newspaper branded bus. There was nothing else to note but the fact that 90 odd people managed to turn up and make this a worthy entry into the record books. I somehow got interviewed for the xbox magazine so hopefully photos of my assassin costume will not infuriate anyone for not being too good.

  I met some fantastic people at the event that were wearing  some incredible costumes. In all honesty I never done anything like this and was there more for a moral boost but glad I could help out and do my bit.

It has come to my attention that there will be an attempt at getting as many people as possible dressed up in full gaming costume very soon. The idea is to break the record of most game related costume dressed humans in one spot. So if you feel like putting yourself forever on the pages of next year’s Guiness gaming book edition then head down to London on the 18th March 2008 at 11 spot on am in the morning.

 I know for sure that a certain lady will be there in her NiGHTS costume along with a in full Sonic gear A silent master assassin might join them as well with some luck if he can use his sneaky skills to get out of University earlier that day. 😉

 Here is more information with some doodles thrown in for good effect and do come and join in the fun as there will be some sort of prizes too for everyone.
