Imagine this, if you will. 100 'Real ultimate power' Ninjas running around on the streets of Exeter, dressed in cheap immitation ninja digs and carrying tiny plastic ninja swords, running around screaming "SEPPIKU!" and "BUSHIDO!" at the top of their lungs, randomly stopping to have a big free for all spazfight and hand out charity leaflets.
I was going to Inform the police with an annonymous tip off a couple of days before. Just saying what we will be doing, that there is no malicious intent and just to try and make their lives easier when they get some claims direct bum squealing down the phone that they feel threatened by the real ultimate power ninjas.
I will hopefully be able to get the digs in cheap bulk, and give them to everyone participating for free. Money from sponsorships and selling posters and certificates of the event will hopefully cover the cost of the digs and have a sufficiant amount left over to donate to a charitable orginisation. Maybe even tip off the media a couple of days before and try to get it in the papers.
So far I am unsure as to where to recruit people for this. The more the better and sillier, but outside of my school I don't know where to go. If I could get it into the exeter collage I am sure I could get a 100 people rounded up, but I am at a loss as how to do that.
Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, but I figured the best thinktanks would be in here, judging by what goes on in GC.
Cylone, moldy cheese and gordenisagayboy, I'll keep you fellows posted.
The whole event would have to be as stupid as possible.
-No purposeful intimidating walking, only 'Ninja creeps'or spazzy jumps
-No big or even slightly realistic swords, only matt grey swords no bigger than your flaccid wang.
-Clear ninja tagging. Colour belts, ninja mask as opposed to babalcava, even a big sash that says 'Trained Ninja'
I'd also probably need a way of keeping 'enthusiastic' spectators from joining in. Although I do like the idea of trying to get it advertised. see how many people could turn up to watch. Would probably need help if advertised ninja places with it.
Maybe advertise a specific amphitheatre like place (like the abbey), have red ninjas and blue ninjas sneak their way across town towards the advertised place, and then pounce in the middle and put on a bit of a show. Have ninja's jumping around with charity buckets afterwards.
This might work alot better than I had planned after all. Does anyone know how to contact city council/officials/the fez?
Given the current climate where Brazilians are shot dead on the tube whilst doing nothing, 100 people wearing balaclavas and screaming at people might just provoke.
You're thinking of samurai's.
Don't expect to get them all back though :^S
And you may want some kind of legal disclaimer for people injuring themselves while spaz-fighting.
Where there's gain there's a claim.
As for the prop cost, you could always simply by smaller and less realistic swords, I realise that would look naff but it's an option at least.
You could charge an entry fee for all those that wanted to come and watch the spectacle, and you could use this to offer an incentive scheme for all the Ninjas (it would pay for somemthing like free refreshements to give them, which may entice them to join)
For the costumes, try and either rent them in bulk from costume shops of get people to pay for the rental costs themselves.
For the actual show itself you'll want something a little more structured than a 'spazz fight' to bring the punters in (should you want to) and I'd recommend something like using the surroundings and maybe have the Ninjas appear from a hiding place, bow, and offer someone a ticket.
There's liabilities involved with public fighting and shouting words all over the place.
Consider it anyway.
A load of youths running around in black balaclavas... I might need to have some people to holt an announcing banner above the event.
The complications pile up. any thinktanking help would be greatly, greatly appreciated.
