Hey everyone,

For FanimeCon 2008 I thought of try something that hasn't been done before (that I know of) at a convention.. hopefully this might work. Besides the usual CvS, KOF, DOA, GGX, SC, etc. gatherings, with the popularity of the fighting-engine MUGEN, perhaps we could try to have a [b]M.U.G.E.N. Fighting-Game Gathering[/b] at Fanime!

If you're not familiar with MUGEN, here's some info:

[url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M.U.G.E.N[/url]

And there are TONS of videos to watch of these made-up matches on YouTube. From video-games (SF, KOF, DOA, GG, even Final Fantasy & Zelda)to anime (Naruto, Bleach, etc.) and even non-anime characters (Family Guy, Simpsons, etc.) there's so much variety to choose from.

Here's how the gathering will work:

If you're interested in joining the gathering, please state the character you'll be cosplaying, and if possible, the particiular game-version your character is from. (example: Ryu can be from SFAlpha, Street Fighter 3, or Evil Ryu) There are also fan-made creations of characters such as "Dark Chun-Li" which if anyone wants to make for the gathering, that's also acceptable.

[b]REQUIREMENT:[/b] Since this is a different type of gathering, and there's lots of characters to choose from, I have a request: when you reply [i]please post a link to a video or webpage that shows that your character is in-fact a playable character on MUGEN.[/i] Here's an example of what I'll be cosplaying:

Eurobeat King : "I'll be cosplaying as Hibiki Takane who is from Capcom vs. SNK 2 and Last Blade 2. Here's a sample-match:"

[url]http://youtube.com/watch?v=WgvR7bJh5Jo[/url]

It's up to you if you can wear the specific costume for your character, but it's not necc. Myself, I only have Hibiki's orange-default costume, so I'll be wearing that for the gathering. [i]Repeat characters & costumes are allowed.[/i]

When it's time for the gathering: When we gather everyone up, we'll just do a big-group picture, and then do an all MUGEN guys picture and then an all MUGEN girls picture and then another group shot for those who arrived late. But..

Since I haven't played this fan-made game, but only watched videos of the matches, I'm open to suggestions as to other group-photos during the gathering. Feel free to reply here with suggestions and tips for the gathering. Thanks!

Sooo, here we go: Again, this is something to try for the new year, and who knows? Maybe it'll be a big turn-out!

Cool. Oh, there's an idea for one group pose: looking at the YT videos, they have a series of matches called "Sword Tournament" so we could get all the characters that use swords in the game for one pose. :)

that be a awesome idea

Dude, that would be a great idea. I have had thoughts of a similar idea where we get all the sword using characters from anime/manga/games for one big gathering. The only question would be which day would this happen. If it falls on a Friday or Sunday, then I believe I would be available.

The "Sword Tournament" match-ups would be for those characters using swords that appear in MUGEN, so check to see if a character you wish to cosplay appears in it. (please post a link from a video to show proof.)

I'm thinking of doing it on Sunday (Day 3) of Fanime, since Friday I'm going to be busy with the swap meet or other cosplay plans.

If it is on sunday, I would want to know what time since I had planned to go to a One Piece gathering (planned to go as Zoro for all of sunday, including Masquerade). So that is a bit of a giveaway as to the character I had in question...

and what about kabuki klash costumes? i know that manjimaru and ziria are playable on mugen... but i'm thinking the same as bahamutknight, i also want to go to the One Piece gathering, which, at the moment is planned for sunday.

so here's manjimaru on mugen:

Yes, since Kabuki Klash and One Piece characters are shown on MUGEN, they are welcome to join the gathering. :)

I like the idea of a MUGEN gathering. You know somebody has to show up as Kung Fu Man (the default character of MUGEN.) Mega Man X might get booed though for being the most overpowered character. XD

#11 CosplayerJJ on 13 years ago

What if you character is in Mugen, but from a different series. I.E. Link.

Unless you ignore Omega Tom Hanks or any other cheaper characters

That's fine. As long as your character appears in M.U.G.E.N. and you have videos to back it up, you're welcome to join the gathering.

I'm not really going to be picky about characters being cheap or being super-powered for the gathering, since it's a collection of characters from the game. In fact, that would make up for a cool picture, where everyone is lying on the ground, defeated by the cheapest/overpowered character in MUGEN. :D

Alright will have to go find my character, will post a link when I do find my character.

Well as far as Fanime goes, I am still undecided whether I can make it or not. I would love to attend this photoshoot either as Sie Kensou (KoF XI), Cody (Final Fight) or Terry Bogard.
