EDIT 2: OMG, its now 1:25am over at Singapore so that means, today is the DEADLINE!!!! Hurry up and comment if you are keen on participating!!! To all those who expressed immerse interest, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the randomising program to pick the best/right person!!!!
ALSO, just to let you guys know, any further updates on this project will be over at the main page of this blog. So don’t just bookmark this entry^^! You’ll miss out new updates !
The selected receiver’s name will be
announced at the main site . I think there’s already too much information on this entry haha ^_^;
I’m still figuring out how I can make this project run more interactive…so bear with me for the moment. I might do a live stream or live youtube capture of the selectign process hahaa. Not sure what I would do though, what do you guys think?
EDIT: Seems like people would like to know how I’m picking my next receiver. The fact is, I’m going to be using a randomizing program to help me select my next receiver based on the comments on this entry ^^. I think that is the most fair and un-bias option. But I will manually disregard any Cosplayers located in Singapore now to be in compliance with the rules =)
So, if you really wanna Up your chances of being the 1st receiver…I guess you can try commenting more ^^ LOL
Hi people! with many encouragement from you guys, I'm going ahead with the Worldwide Cosplayers Photo Journey project and I’m calling out for any willing participants ^_^!!!!
Let me start with a bit of introduction about the project.
About the Project:
I'm sure we've all received chain mails before. Now this project is something similar but with more fun and minimal maliciousness.
I’ll start by sending out a snail mail (yes, you heard that right) with a disposable camera and scarf to a foreign cosplayer (meaning, someone outside Singapore).
Then the cosplayer will take a photo of herself/himself/costumes/event/room/figurine collections/ props etc, write/decorate his/her well wishes for 2011 on the scarf and then send it to ANOTHER cosplayer in either another State or Country.
This snail mail link will go on and on until either
1) camera runs out of negatives/battery
2) 2 weeks before Christmas 2010.
The last person will send it back to me and I will post everything here.
Objectives of this project:
- To come together as a global community to give our most sincere well wishes for the year ahead
- To promote and encourage intercontinental interactions between cosplayers
- To promote cross cultural harmony and understanding
- To inject fun and excitement into our lifes!
