    IGN Live Be The Game

    IGN Live brings IGN.com to Life. Visit the website at http://www.ign.com and click on IGNLIVE!

    IGN Live is IGN.com's first live event taking place on October 22nd and 23rd at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA. This live event will feature the top releases for the 2005 holiday season, seminars on how to get into the video game industry, live panels with video game publishers/developers, enormous video game tournaments, exclusive first looks at the hottest game trailers, and overall lifestyle entertainment related to cars, gear, music etc.

    Attendees will be able to view trailer exclusives in the Dolby® HD Theater, a venue that seats over 250 people and is equipped with high-definition video and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound. Attend exclusive seminars, in association with the Game Developers Conference, telling gamers ?How to Break into the Game Industry.? Other live panels will be conducted by IGN Entertainment editors who will be interacting with personalities across videogames, movies, music and technology.

    The event takes place Saturday Oct. 22nd, and Sunday Oct. 23rd at the Anaheim Convention Center in Hall D located at:

    800 West Katella Avenue,
    Anaheim, CA 92802

    Show hours are from 10-7 on Saturday and 10-6 on Sunday


    Here is a link to the sponsors and exhibitors which will be at the event: http://live.ign.com/sponsors.html


    There will be a gamespy tournement arena for Halo 2, Battlefield 2, and Counter-Strike.

    Feel free to come dressed as your favorite character as they will have contests and will be awarding cash prizes for the best dressed.


    Entry is $15 per day to attend, and $9 for parking (*** If you are a costumed member "working" the event, you get free admittance and parking, see below under "Costumed Event Opportunity.")

    We will have a booth at this event which will be shared by the costuming clubs. We will have flyers for our club and our photo album at the booth. IGN has asked us to bring any cool props, cut-outs or other
    items so that we can turn our 10 x 10 booth in a Star Wars type den. If you have any ideas or items to donate to the booth, please post in this thread. There will be at least 6-8 costumed members in and around the booth at all times as they will be taking pictures with guests, who can then go online to download their pictures with the Star Wars characters. IGN is providing a photographer for this event. A Star Wars type backdrop would be cool if any of you have one, or know who does, or how we could make one. This would also be cool to use in other future events.

    - You can participate in the messageboard for this event here: http://boards.ign.com/IGN_Live/b8594/

    ******* Costumed Event Opportunity ********

    I am in need of 25-30 costumed members daily to work this event with both Good Guy and Bad Guy costumes. Costumed workers get free admission and parking. I have all the Jedi I need at this time, but still need "other" good guy, and all bad-guy costumes. (See note on parking below)

    I am also in need of several stormtroopers each morning to stand at the door and "act like security" during the informal checks of backpacks and purses. It would be good to have perhaps an Imperial officer or two each morning to assist as well.

    Each costumed member is required to work a 2 hour shift at the booth in costume. You of course may go and take all the breaks you need as required, there will be a changing area provided for you. We will have 6-8 costumed members at the photo booth at all times.

    We will be having MTV 2 there so I?m sure they will be getting many shots with the Star Wars costumed members. Basically, IGN wants you guys to enjoy the event and have fun with the fans, nothing too structured or crazy. And of course you are welcome to play the games!

    Everyone who wishes to attend, please post below with your name, what costumes you have, and give me your preferences of shifts. Also let me know if you can work on Saturday, Sunday, or both days. The shift times are 10-12, 12-2, 2-4, and 4-7 on Saturday a

    Update:

    - I have 56 free passes to this event, so that is how many costumed slots I have available.

    - I also received 12 "2 for the price of 1 admissions." If anyone would like one of these for friends/family, let me know. That is a good deal as it is only $15 a day admission to this convention for two people. General admission at the door is $25.00 each.

    - The event will be televised on MTV 2

    - Video Game Hero/Villain costume contest $1,500 each cash award

    - PokerStars "All-in tournement"

    - Best Buy Main stage will hold panels hosted by the IGN and GameSpy editors, featuring some of the biggest names in the video game, movie, and technology industries.

    - Classic Game Auctions. Bid on favorites such as Pacman, Galaga, Space Invaders etc.

    - Game swap sale. Bring your old games and swap with others. Tables are $5.00.

    - The cash prizes for the gaming tournements is $7,500, $2,500 each for the winners in Battlefield 2, Halo 2, and Counter-Strike

    - They will be holding exclusive seminars on how to break into the Game Industry in association with the Game Developers Conference.

    - Dolby HD Theatre. A 250 seat theatre with Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound where you can view exclusive game and movie trailers.

    Charles asked me to mention that I did need people with lightsaber dueling ability. If you have some choreographed routines, please bring your sabers with you. We have a 50 minute time period on stage that has been allotted for lightsaber demonstrations and it is going to be televised on MTV2 I am told. I am in desperate need of more "bad guy" costumes however, so if you have a bad guy costume, can you bring that as well to change into after the duels? I know if you can come down it would only be for one day, so I will try and pin IGN down on what day we have the lightsaber battle scheduled, and try to get it scheduled for Saturday.

    Well I am glad Charles prompted me to contact IGN... it turns out they have scheduled 4 performances of lightsaber battles (2 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday). Even Anakin and Obi-wan didn't battle that long. :p We will definitely have to have several groups of people performing during each time slot, and use the in-between times to promote our various clubs. :D

    For all you dueling Jedi. IGN has scheduled us for two performances of Jedi battles on Saturday, and two on Sunday each lasting 50 minutes each. Our CR suggested perhaps having several smaller performances during that 50 minute slot. Say one group starts at 1:00, another at 1:10, etc to break it up. In between times we can take the mic and talk about our various clubs and give information on where to go for lightsaber classes (San Diego has one now too). Perhaps even give a simple lesson to people in the crowd?

    Just a question, is a Vader attending? Curiosity has got my mind atm, my costume isnt completed yet (missing leather body suit, and a new chest box), but I am curious :)

    Also, it seems we are bringing down a group of 12 at first counts.


    See you all in Anaheim!!

    I don't have a Vader yet, there is one in our club here in San Diego but I haven't asked Brandon if he could attend or not yet.

    The size of the Jedi Battle Arena is 20 ft x 20 ft, so please make sure your routines can fit in the space alloted.

    Also, I am in need of a Vader, so if you can get your costume ready in time, I'd be most appreciative.

    *Blink* you need a Vader? Well let me say.

    "What is thy bidding"

    Guess that means I am stowing 2 costumes for this function then, My Sith costume for dueling and my Vader for parading about. If you dont mind this Vader showing up:
    [image=http://www.theorderofthetwinsuns.com/Vader.jpg]

    Then I would be happy to.

    Side note, all hand made (minus the helmet which has been modded some, and the chest box) The armor has been repainted into a correct grey/black color scheme, a new cod piece has been made, and I will be attempting to vinyl coat my current body suit as time and finances will not allow me to make a more accurate piece. I would also wield a proper saber... not a toy :)

    A question about the fights. Will there be a chance for us to warm up on stage, or at least practice on it a couple of times?

    Yes, Lord Vader would be MOST welcome!

    I guess if you want to practice on the stage, I'd suggest getting there at 9:30am or earlier and practicing before the doors open. With your passes and with your first and last names, I can get you on the list so you can get in early.

    I have returned!!!

    Here is an update for you.
    The Order of the Twin Suns will have 11 members attending the event. 8 members will be there both Saturday and Sunday as I have booked the perfect room for our overnight stay.

    We will be bringing our Vader, Anakin, Dooku, Obi Wan, Janga, and hopefully a Red Guard. We have both random Sith and Jedi.
    We also have Skippy who may get a new costume for the event.

    Thanks sooooo much for coming down to help out with this event!

    Hi Mara_Jade_Fan, could you use a Jango, Jedi, and Jawa for your booth or wherever it is that your recruiting people in costume for. Here's some pics of our costumes with the only change to them being adding a jetpack to Jango's costume. The kid is my son and the Jawa is my little sister(22 years if that's little), so if you could use us we'd have to stay together in a time slot or two on Saturday only(as of right now but that might change. We'd be comming up with Tulare County's Twin Suns group.
    I'll PM you our full names and the times we'd prefer if you can use us.

    Here is the updated list. Make sure those participating in the Jedi Arena Battles all have an * behind their names, and that your names are spelled correctly. Make sure those of you working Saturday only, are only listed for Saturday and that the time is okay for you. Those there both days, make sure I have you listed both days and that the times are okay for you. You may work MORE time than is listed, the times listed are the minimum you need to be in the costumes. You will be at the photo booth during your scheduled times in costume taking photos with the guests of the convention. IGN is providing a photographer, but you are welcome to take your own photos and video of the convention. If you are slated to perform in one of the Jedi Arena Battles during your scheduled photo booth duty, you of course may leave, and return after your battle is over.

    *Jaina* Solo is possbile, but during all of my slated times, I will definitely be in Jedi garb, because it's the same times scheduled for my battle - both days. I will have to do the leave for my fight and come back thing. The only other issue, for ID purposes (I don't know what the check-in security is like), it may be safer to list me as "Elizabeth Smith" instead of "Liz."

    Your names will be left at will-call and you will be given a wristband. For those going both days, you most likely will have to check in at will-call on both days to receive a new wristband.

    Is there anyone else coming that I don't have names for? The IGN people want the list submitted today, instead of Thursday night.

    Edit: Added Rebekah Cruz Jawa to the same time slot as Lorenzo and Quinton.

    /\ I think he lost it when I removed someones name. I know he is one of the Jedi Duelers though. When I post the final list tomorrow, I'll add his * back in.

    Parking info: Park in the Anaheim Convention Center and bring your parking ticket in with you. Before you leave the convention for the day, give me your parking ticket and I will give you $4.50 reimbursement if you drove alone, or give you $9.00 if you drove a carpool of people. Do this for each day you are at the convention.

    Pictures I took during the set-up at IGN today:

    This is our dressing room. It is on the left side nearer to the back of Hall A above the Deli. Unfortunately there are two flights of stairs to get up to the dressing room, so I am going to get Jedi or non-costumed individuals to take turns helping the armored individuals decend and ascend the stairs safely.

    Here is what our dressing room looks like inside. From our dressing room you can look out the windows and have a great view of the convention. Expected attendance is 10,000 people. We will be sharing the dressing room with a few wrestlers, but the room is quite large.

    This is what our booth looked like this morning. It is a 10x20 foot space, with Verizon on the other side of us.

    This is the Jedi Arena Battle area where Jedi from the Rebel Legion will be staging battles twice daily, from 1:00 - 1:50, and 3:00 - 3:50 both Saturday and Sunday. The arena measures 20 ft x 20ft.

    Request from IGN:

    IGN would like to get as many costumed members in front of the Anaheim convention center by 9am. If you don't mind getting there early, I'd really appreciate it. Radio and TV stations will be present, and convention attendees will be lined up outside the convention center. The expected attendance is 10,000 people. They want you to interact with the crowd and media, basically keep people entertained until the doors open at 10:00am. The earliest you can get into the convention center is 7:00am. Feel free to arrive as early as you'd like and suit up. Imperials doing the "Security/Bag check duty" I'll have more instructions for you tomorrow morning. I am going to try and get there at 7:00am myself.

    This is a map of the floor of Hall A. Red Star marks the photo booth. On the opposite end of the hall is the Jedi Battle Arena (Wrestling arena). The doors to Hall A, are on the far right side, near the Red Star. Our dressing room is above where it reads concessions on the lower left of the map.

    Much respect to you guys for making the trip down and for the awesome choreo fights. I hadn't met any other groups besides ours who did that so it is cool to see that it is growing. Hope to see you guys at more events in the future.
