My friends and I are doing a skit for A-fest 2006 for our Inu-yasha group. We have a Sango, Miroku, Inuyasha, Kikyo, and Kagome. I'm desperate for any ideas!

I'm going to A-fest, too, and after watching about 8 cosplay contests, let me give you a few tips:
1.People really want to laugh. It seems like it is always the funny groups that get the awards.
2.Yaoi and Yuri always gets the crowd going ^^;;.
3.Prerecording your voices onto a CD is really helpfull so that every Future Card Buddy Fight person watching the skit can hear you. Skits that do this always seem to get awards, too.
4.If you arn't prepared, you arn't prepared- there was a skit at A-kon that was soooooo boring and dull, around 100 people left in the five minutes the skit wasted!!

I'll be looking for ya when I'm at A-Fest, and I'll almost most definently be cosplaying as a female Sephiroth!

I hope I helped some... good luck!

Lmao I remember that skit at A-Kon... way for the staff to liven it up, though... let's break things! Sitting on the other side of the room, away from the broken Future Card Buddy Fight, it was pretty funny.

Please at least make it interesting. Comedy usually gets the crowd going, but it's only good if we can HEAR it. If you're going to use the provided microphone, pass it back and forth, and SPEAK INTO IT. Don't put it in your mouth, but close enough to your mouth so we can hear you. And I agree with Sakura, the audience of cosplay skits is always full of crazy perverts and rabid fangirls (well, it's not that bad, but yeah), so yaoi and yuri (especially yaoi) leanings are entertaining to most of the crowd.

Make it memorable. Nobody wants to see Kagome tell Inuyasha to sit ever again. If we wanted to see that, we would just watch the anime. Sorry, that's just so overused, it bothers me.

I agree with you it's so overused it's annoying. Unfortunatly I called A-Fest and they said that they won't let us pre record voices but they will give us microphones :( . As for Yuri and yaoi, I'm not against homosexuals, my cousin's gay, but I don't like it if the characters aren't gay, but I do think it can be funny. :D Thanks for your help guys I really apreciate it! I feel much more comfortable about writing a skript now! :D
