Cosplay Chess is a modern twist on a classic spectacle during the Renaissance, where players stood on a field as pawns in a chess match, directed by two masters. In this modern interpretation, characters of all different fandoms and genres battle it out for dominance under the control of two masters. Please keep in mind that all convention and cosplay rules still apply at this event. As the date of the event approaches, you will receive a confirmation letter regarding your character position, as well as further instructions for what to do on the day of the event.
The theme of Genericon XXXI is “Cyberpunk/32-bit.” In accordance with this theme, this year’s Cosplay Chess will be titled “Viva La Revolution”.
The digital alarm of revolution is ringing as corporations are controlling the masses through technology. Fortunately, the rebel faction has something to say about that. The two warring factions will be the Rebel and the Order. Come and see their battles and struggle in the made-up city of Genericonia!
