A Few Guiness World Book Record For Your Consideration
According to our fine friends at Comics Alliance, a gaggle of costumed cohorts congregated at the corner of Hollywood and Highland in in L.A. yesterday. In order to top Australia’s record for most people dressed in superhero costumes in one place at one time, a craigslist ad posted to bring as many cosplayers to the call as possible. While we weren’t able to confirm if more than 1245 vigilantes showed up between 12:30 and 12:45 PM as called for, we have faith in our American cosplayers. If someone out there on the left coast wants to tell us how it went, please share in the comments!
In a related story, not to be outdone by us silly Americans, last week, 519 Marios, Warios, Luigis, and WaLuigis gathered in Chifeng City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China. They gathered not only to score the record of “Largest Gathering Of People Dresses As Mario”, but to celebrate the Fifth Hongshan Culture Festival and Chifeng Animation Festival. Oddly enough this explains how Mario is able to fall into various pits of death, and flaming traps in his misadventures… It simply appears if one of him “game overs”… he’s replaced!
So, should any of you fine ComicMix fans out there happen to have caught the cossies in L.A., or would like to beat some of the other odd records stored within the Guiness Book, let us know, and we’ll celebrate it!
