RtP! to Cover The World Cosplay Summit in Nagoya

hm

For the first time, RtP! is sending a camera crew to cover the world’s largest cosplay competition championship in Nagoya, Japan. Even though we’ve lived in Japan for the past few years we haven’t been able to make it to the event before. For those that don’t know, cosplay teams from around the world gather in Nagoya and perform on stage in the final rounds of the competition on August 6 and 7. There’s also a number of cosplay related events taking place in the weeks prior to the championship.

Death Game Production

nona

My favorite anime of last year was a show by the name of Death Parade. It’s about arbiters. People who judge the souls of humans after they die. Only they’re bartenders who make their guests play games which decide the fate of their souls. It’s an original story by Yuzuru Tachikawa and not a manga adaptation. Besides being fantastically animated by Madhouse, it has a really interesting and surprisingly moving story. I decided I wanted to cosplay the main character so I started planning on putting the costume together for February’s Katsucon. It’s a fairly simple outfit so it’d be perfect to still be able to move around and film in during the event.

Niconico Chokaigi 2014: Sumo, Knights and Zombies!

adventure

Mostly I’ve been attending conventions to film the cosplay scene but Niconico was an event I wasn’t even sure had cosplay. I heard about it from a friend and looking it up online I could only discern that it was an event aimed at making people smile. So I decided to check it out and soon discovered that not only was there cosplay but also many, many other things to see. Most Japanese conventions are largely spectacle with big booths to check out upcoming attractions and buy merchandise. While they’re not nearly as social as America’s, it’s still fun to check out the interesting displays. And that’s where Niconico surpassed all of the Japanese events I’ve attended thus far.

Third Katsucon Showcase Video!

First off I’d like to give a big thanks to Spazzerbot Cosplay for her wonderful work as the Journey cosplayer in this video. Not only was her outfit incredible but she gladly marched off into the snow with me to film “on location”. Like last year’s Ico shoot, filming outside allowed for some great backgrounds that evoked the game world. In this case…the snowy mountain ending of Journey.

Of course thanks to all the other cosplayers that came together for this. Entire Chrono Trigger cast amiright?!

This one took awhile to edit. Mostly because I thought I wouldn’t have enough footage to fill the whole song. But then I ended up finding enough…for two songs. Thus let the slow paced DRAMA and incredible dancing begin.

Guess I’ll start work on the review video now…


Rescue the Princess! to Retake Katsucon XX!

fasfefef

Rescue the Princess! loved Katsucon so much that they’ve decided to collectively blow all their money and fly down from Japan to return this February! So far b-rock and Lost Link are hard at work constructing outfits and Seagz, Xinity and Phrank are being lazy.

Lost Link is also eager to continue playing with his new toy and you can check out some of the talented people he may be filming with below! Rumor has it that our GOOD PAL Ackson may be out of the picture this year shoving MLZ to the forefront as RtP’s new ETERNAL videography rival.

So keep your fingers crossed for good weather and bring on the Gaylord!

Comiket 85 Cosplay Video!

Winter Comiket was a lot more comfortable than summer with beautiful weather all three days. And since it wasn’t 140 degrees, the bigger costumes came out to play. Take a look at our first steadicam music video. It was challenging to film in the swarms of people but Lost Link managed to capture a few shots of the cosplay crowd. Winter Comiket review video to come.


Hey, We’re at Comiket!

We survived day one! Sunburns and mega crowds and 118 degrees aside, it was pretty successful. Got some arty merchandise, filmed some Japanese cosplay, started production on a music video and met some pretty cool peeps! Now to get some sleep in preparation for DAY 2.


Wonder Festival 2013 Cosplay Takeover!

Here’s the music video from Wonder Fest, courtesy of some talented Japanese cosplayers.
