With only two weeks to go before our videogames marathon, participant Louise Stephens Alexander has come up with a novel way of getting extra sponsorship: She has promised to undertake the full 24 hours in fancy dress!

“As an incentive, if I reach my targets prior to the event, I will do the event dressed in a silly and uncomfortable manner.” she tells us on her Just Giving page, “£100 – dressed as a pirate, £200 -dressed as a hula girl, £250+ – dressed as a futuristic space robot. If I make £500, which seems unlikely, I will do the entire thing in my wedding dress (complete with veil). Rest assured that it is extremely uncomfortable.”
Dramaturge Louise has already received enough sponsorship to guarantee 24 hours dressed like a pirate, but since Louise only got married earlier this year, SKSP thinks it would be a perfect opportunity to wear an outfit that she only got a chance to wear once, and we encourage people to help her reach that £500 target!
What’s more, Louise will be playing largely on a PS2, so won’t have a network of online buddies to keep her chin up. She plans to play some Taito legends (superqix, space invaders), Colin Mcrae rally, Guitar Hero, Singstar, GTA, tony hawk; Portal and Lego Star Wars. SKSP believes her friends are rallying round, including lending her an Xbox and supplying her with “pizzas and moral support on the night. DELICIOUS MORAL SUPPORT “
