As promised here's my Judge's Award that I received for my Vincent Valentine cosplay. It was so unexpected and so gratefully received! It makes me want to continue on with cosplay! And yes, I do have my choice for next year picked. It should be fun!
The Judges of the contest were allowed to give their choices something else besides a certificate. Mine decided to give me a 'Pocky Cup.' I think it's hilarious and I totally want to meet the guy. xD The front says "National Pocky League" and the back says "Banzai Cup 2010." I did find out something that was a bummer. If I had put my cosplay into the Craftmanship, it would have won. The ones who did put their cosplays in had bought half of their cosplays while I had made all of mine. Guess who'll be trying for that next year? Yep. I think I might have to. ;)
