Anyone have a list of all winners and what they won? I have a vague idea of who won awards at masquerade, but it would be nice if someone could post the list.

Iron Cosplay
This was REALLY amazing this year. The contestants had two hours to build a pre-existing character costume. The theme was magical girls and the secret ingredient was plastic wrap.

Team 1 overcame some pretty bad setbacks to make an Akazukin Chacha costume. Their lead member vanished and they had to recruit someone 5 minutes before construction began. In addition to that the supply bag they got had been added the night before and unfortunately there was a problem with the box cutter and there were no safety pins.

Team 3 made a Card Captor Sakura bunny costume. They made the best use of the secret ingredient, plastic wrap.

Team 2 was our winning team and received $60 from cosplay.com. They Made a Cure White costume from Pretty Cure and also made plushies of the sidekick.

Wow, thanks for the information, SeiginoMikata! I was really excited about the Iron Cosplay, but I couldn't attend because I didn't go on Sunday. >_< So it's nice to hear the results. The masquerade was great too... Yuuko was amazing. o_o

*cries* We looooostttt! I wa sin the chacha group. soooo many things went wrong. Since our team elader ditched us, None of the people in my team knew each other, I didn't know them either, but we managed...AND we had decided we'd dress up this one guy in the costume, he was easiest to dress up....and lo and behold...the theme was magical GIRLS.....did I mention that neithe rI nor my team knew ANYTHING about magical girls? I love almosta ll anime...just not magical girl anime....so we looked at the picture sin the binder and chose a random one with a skirt that wans't to short for a guy (u have any idea how hard it is to find a magicla girl with a long skirt who's costume can be completed in 2 hours?) and then as was said, our suply bag was annoying. we were missing pins and glue for the hot glue gun, our blade was brand new, so I ahd to wiat while it wa sopened and fixed before I could use it to make the bow, AND we had a really crappy outlet, and everytime we plugged in our hot glue gun, it came out and it dind't get hot, so we also had to wiat a long time, several times, to use the hot glue gun. AND because we were dressing a guy, it took us longer to chose an outfit, and that meant we were the last ones to get materials. all the good things were gone. basically, it was a disaster, but for a disaster...I think we did okay. I plan on coming bakc next year and creating another team, and this time, I hope we can win

Kiara004: you guys did an absolutely astonishing job given what happened. I'm glad you stuck with it and saw it through to the end. Hopefully next year we'll be able to have more entries and know about it ahead of time so there's no last minute supply run resulting in mediocre supplies (1am at walmart is not my favorite time to make up supply kits)

Don't be so hard on yourself! It was a very good costume, considering this was your first masquerade. I didn't see anything that looked nasty or falling apart (though I wasn't a judge, so I didn't look at your seams closely ;)). More importantly, you were awesome in the green room. Good luck on your future costumes! I hope to see you next year.

I was in the runner up best in show...

Stupid music was way too loud, so we had to do our whole skit without anyone able to hear us. It would've made a lot more sense if they could:bigcry:

But everyone's costumes were awesome! ^____^

Ashley Rice (the sexy seamstress), Ikariya (Saiho the sexy propmaster), and I won the IRON COSPLAY! This was my second cosplay ever!!! And I wanted to get more involved with the whole anime convention thing - so I dragged my buddy Ikariya (Saiho) into doing this with me and then I met Ashley! =D I was thrilled that we won becuase...in that costume Ashley put a duct tape corset on me and whew ;) I'm surprised we get to come back for free and we automatically get to compete again to defend our title! =D YAY!!!!!!

I give MAJOR PROPS To everyone else for having so much energy and spirit in them to get involved at AOD!!!! =D <3 <3 <3

to stop stage fright...pretend nobody is there and that you're at home practicing as normal....if that doesnt work...pretend the audience is naked...well that keeps me laughing on stage but I dunno ^_^ =)

I was Kratos from the God of War. It was such an adrenaline rush to be fully painted as Kratos and to just act so brutal with his music going in the background. I loved it. I felt the true heart of cosplay that night when I saw everyone's skits. I was happy to win a judge's award. :reverse:
