The gunpowder treason and plot...

Well, first of all, if you aren't familiar with V for Vendetta and are only here out of curiosity, go watch the movie and/or read the book. But that's not the major point of this thread.

NonPlayerCharacter
This is the best idea anyone has ever had in the history of Gaia.



Attention V Fans and people with nothing better to do!

Come November 5th, wouldn't it be awesome to stage an invasion of the V avatars, just like in the movie? If you wish to participate, begin collecting items to create a V costume. I post this now to give you the time to get it all together, since I know that many of you aren't exactly rich and will need to save up for the outfit.

I will help you if you don't have enough money! Just ask!

YOU WILL NEED: (Pink for women-only, Blue for men-only)
-Black, broad-brimmed hat (Chess Hat, Colonial Hat, Black Musketeer Hat, Coal Gunner Hat, and Black Zoot Suit Tapa are decent options)
-Black cloak or cape (Black Musketeer Cape, Lunar Cloak, Colonial Cape, Witch's Cape, and Picolitrosso's Urn (Velvet Cloak) are good)
-Hair (Egyptian Short Wig is good, or just use your natural hair if it looks right)
-White, full-face mask (Preferably the mask pose of the Epic Fail hat, but Kitsune Mask, THE MASK, Yokai's Treasure Yurei Mask, Picolitrosso's Urn (Porcelain Mask), Inari's Beads (Kao Ni Yomen), and Hockey Mask are acceptable; THE MASK needs to be paired with an Egyptian Short Wig)
-High black boots (Soldat Steel boots are ideal, other boots are acceptable, the Arrhh!! boots are brown but also just like his boots from the book version)
-Black shirt/top (If you can, use one that goes past the waist. Musketeer Top goes past the waist and can be worn over a shirt to "extend" it - women's Complex Shirts also go past the waist all by themselves, as do the Buttoned Down Fauna Peacoats.)
-Black pants or tights. (Colonial Stockings and Blade's Leggings are perfect, since they tuck into boots. Elegant Trousers and Ahhrr!! britches stop just at the top of Soldat Boots, so if you wear the Soldat Boots or Arrhh!! boots, these pants are also good)
-Black gloves that cover the entire hand. (Ghost hunter gloves or regular old "Black Gloves" are probably the best)
-Possible accessories are Pink Carnations, red or white long-stemmed roses, Sword of the Aegis in it's more daggerlike form, Dark Star held as a "Shuriken Blade" in the far hand, the Naruto kunai, and Roman Candles, especially the red ones)
-Gray Long Johns are very useful if you have little bits of skin showing and need to cover them.

Other options:
-Buying a Pink Floral Apron means you don't need a hat, cape, or gloves, since V didn't wear those while he was cooking.
-Exchanging the long black shirt for a Black Sport Vest, Gray Long Johns (to cover your wrists), and an Outlaw Biker Shirt (Coal) negates the need for a hat and cape, but since this is the outfit V wore when fencing, it'd be best if you had a rapier or a Sword of the Aegis to enhance it)
-Face backwards if you don't want to wear a Hockey Mask and can't afford a more expensive one!


***MAKE SURE YOU COVER AS MUCH SKIN AS POSSIBLE!***

Sample avatars - There ARE other options! The items in these were selected randomly to give ideas, and many substitutions can easily be made. These were made on TekTek.

...I know of no reason the gunpowder treason should ever be forgot.
WHAT WE WILL DO

Information.

If you want to participate, join this guild with the word "treason" in your join request. Currently there's a little bit of controversy over whether or not this has to do with the 2% gold sink - personally, I say it's not.

Riddle-Me-This
There should also be forum raids... Chatterbox, GCD, GD, Roleplaying.. etc And encourage people wearing the cosplays to post in the V for Vendetta threads in those forums as well as being in Towns.

We'd need a person or two to host the threads (one in each forum we would be allowed to post stuff like this in without it being deleted by a mod or considered spam)) and a group of people to agree to bump and post regularly in the threads.

We could even invade the SF by requesting V for Vendetta items and tell everyone to post in the thread there XD. It'll be funny. I'd be up to hosting the SF thread, because I'm a regular there and I know the rules for that forum.

That way other regular forum people will be like "WTF" and it'll appear like there are more of us than they're really are.... each thread we post we will link back to this one, the main event thread, and the main event thread will have lists and links of where we're making our V day activities happen.

Each of these avatar edits was sold last year to raise gold for other people's costumes. If you want to buy one, please specify whether you want the full edit (as shown, but minus scanlines) or a cosplay edit (your avatar in the character's clothes). Evey's hair can be recolored to match your avatar's if you wish.

Price for whole cosplay outfit or full edit: 800g
Price for single piece: 400g (things like the mask, the apron, V's wig, or Evey's pigtails, but not entire edits)

A new batch is also on the way, so watch this space for more.

Order Form:
[b]Which Edit:[/b]
[b]Cosplay?[/b] (Yes/No) - Provide base if yes; bald bases get the edit's hair as a wig
[b]Base:[/b] (Required for cosplays or single pieces)
[b]Total price:[/b]


Send payment to Sophie the Hatmaker.

He knows his way around explosives AND he can cook...! Now that's sexy.

Haha!
I saw that movie recently and I loved it. I want to read the graphic novel now. I thought the movie was going to be super serious.. but it was funny at parts. Like the cooking and stuff. You should make the girl versions wear pink aprons. xDD

I loved that movie.
I might participate in this. =D
If I remember, I will do it.

That's such a fun idea! I think there's a petition somewhere in the petition forum for Guy Fawkes masks from the movie. Be fun if there would were more siggys so they'd release some similar item for Nov!
