Hi All,
As we've been getting the pre-reg in, I've been noting that North Cali continues to whip the South's butt in this category. This year, I'm going to start an award, the Chairman's Trophy.

Each year, this trophy will rotate to the California region that has the most pre-reg at AM. It will be held by a cosplay group that represents that region. I have my thoughts on who should get this prestigious award, but yours may vary. Here's mine. Ideally I'd like you all to come to concensus without fighting over it. Maybe the region's groups could decide to rotate the winning the title each year.

Nor Cal: AGSMA, iPlay, USA Musume

So Cal: Phoenix Seed, Everplay, Sailor Jamboree

LA County and Basin: Kie & Lilli, Rourouni Otaku, AcmeBoyz (don't know who else)

Unless San Diego has strong showing, we'll consider them as part of the south

Constructive input is always welcome. Keep in mind I'm trying to interject a little fun into what is becoming a con for cosplayers. And that's a good thing! The award goes out at Opening Ceremonies, please decide who should get it by Oct 3rd.

Someone start a poll, please

Oh yeah, we just passed 200 pre-reg!


L to the 3rd

San Diego is providing you this message board to post this on.

And we're about as southern California as it gets. We ARE Southern California. By god Nessa can see MEXICO from her bedroom window. Is that not So Cal?

Thank you Aeris... and yes, TJ is viewable from my bedroom window. I sometimes worry when the trash cans out back are out of place in the morning...

I guess what I mean is, is there a cosplay group that hails from that region? If that's the case I'd do P-seed and that lot out in Orange County as South Central

not really. We don't like to group ourselves up. We're individuals. we're the... BUMBUMBUM... ADELLANESSAJUSTIN GROUP! A.N.J!!!!

Oh, So Justin's with you too? Tell him I said hi! A word about Justin:

Before I met Justin, I was ready to kill any guy I saw in crossplay. Seeing him in Mai costume really turned my thoughts on crossplaying around.

For him, it's an ART, not "my girl friend put me up to it" kind of thing. He crossplayed so well, my kids took bets on if Mai was a girl or not. His work is excellent, and he keeps you guessing about the gender when he out there working.

Fat guys in Card Captor Sakura battle clothes aren't safe near me yet, but true male crossplayers like Justin have my respect. The work he does earns my highest compliment: uh......sexy!

I thought AGSMA and iPlay are So.Cal also, since Wayne of AGSMA and Karrie of iPlay live down there. Lily & Kie live up here in No. Cal, but they go to school down there in So.Cal. And USAMusume is sorta divided, with half living up here and the other half from So.Cal? :confused:

Ah!MyCosplay (AMC) would be considered No.Cal since the trio lives up here, although Allie is going to school in SD, and meibi also Sakura Mochi (Jenny, Gina, Thea, etc.) live up here in No.Cal.

See you all in 5 days! :skidude2:

Wouldnt cosplay.com be a group of its own cause we do have cosplayers signed up and they get to put all of their pics up too.

I'm getting crazy busy, between the con, evening school and the TSA job I'm going after, I'll never get this done. Let's work this for next year. It's also gotten a little complicated. :confused:

o.o Yeah. Maybe a Chairman's Trophy idea should be set for next year when it can be announced further in advance. ^_^;
And not all of us cosplayers have groups. X_x
I'm part of a couple of unofficial duets and one group but we don't live in the same area. :P

Whee that post was useless.
