Hope’s Peak Holiday Party
A Danganronpa based cosplay panel with varying members across the games series all interacting with each other and the audience. The main feature of this panel includes an in-character Q&A, where the audience can ask the cosplayers on the panel questions relating to the game and it’s content. The panel will also however feature the idea of little slightly scripted skits and twist on classic ‘party’ games such as Heads Up 7 Up. The aforementioned skits will include a fake murder inspired by the game directly, where it turns out to be a joke, and a gift exchange among panelist inspired by the holiday season. In between the scripted events will include improv opportunities, encouraged by the audience’s questions, and if none are asked, there are comedic back up questions on reserve. Overall the panel is intended to be a light hearted, fun, time with a popular series many adore.
