To bring as many Mass Effect actors/models on board as possible to give back to the fans,
while fans give back to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The Mass Effect Cast Cosplay event was a HUGE success!!! We nearly filled the Main Theater at PAX East, had 10,000 people watch the panel live, and nearly 6,000 people have watched the archived stream as of 4/15/2014! On top of that, our Smiles for St. Jude photo op and raffle for Keythe’s Thane mask raised over $6000 in the span of an hour and a half for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. WOW!!!
There is a massive list of people without whom this would not have been possible. Be on the lookout for a full list of acknowledgements soon.
Welcome to the Mass Effect Cast Cosplay Initiative! Our goal is to gather as many of the voice actors and models as possible to cosplay as their respective characters, after all this happened.
Participating costumers are doing so on behalf of themselves and/or their respective creative labels. Participating talent are doing so because they’re amazing and fun and we as fans are lucky to have them. Any support shown for the initiative is done without compensation on either side. Any donations gathered from fans for the project are meticulously documented and applied ONLY to costs associated with this initiative. Any donations exceeding the costs of the initiative will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. These donations will NOT be individually tax-deductible, as they will be donated under this initiative’s name and names of participating talent.
To donate to the Initiative, feast thine eyes upon this page.
The event will take place on Saturday, April 12th at 2 PM in the Main Theater at PAX East 2014 in Boston, Mass. We will inform you on our official Facebook page of new information. Please DO NOT ask any talent, agents, cosplay groups, fan groups, costumers, or other individuals other than the MECC Project Manager and/or Board members for specific information on these details as they are bogged down as it is (read: be respectful, as everyone involved is donating his or her time for the fans). All questions should be directed as posts on our Facebook page.
To see how you can help, please email the Project Manager, Karissa Barrows, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hackers, spammers, and haters shall be smote with a vengeance never before seen by the light of day.
Thank you for your support, and a HUGE THANK YOU to the actors and models who have already graciously agreed to participate!
