Hi, hi, Everyone!

This is Rachel Ann, the Costume Coordinator for Shoujocon 2003. I'm very glad to see all the positive feedback here in the forum. This was the first time I was in charge of a cosplay and I was very nervous! But I had a great time and I'm SO happy everyone else did, too!

I also see from the notes that everyone would like to see the final scores for the Cosplay and the Hall Fashion Contest. Well,

HERE THEY ARE!!

I don't have some of the information, most notably the names of the Cosplay skits. If you or your group was one of the groups who cosplayed, and you remember your number, please let me know and I'll fill in the skit name. - thanx! Rachel Ann

Hi there Rachel! ^^ You did a great job with the cosplay! ^_^

Here's my question though- I thought that the Fanboy skit came in 3rd and the Harry Potter skit 2nd? ^^;;;; it's probably me and my poor memory though XD

Yay! Thanks for the scores! And yes, I agree with Tenjou... You did a wonderful job with the masquarade! It was very organized and I was very happy that we didn't have to wait for the next day to find out who the winners are ^_^

Staff chose them out of all the ones entered

Tenjou- Nope that is the correct tally. ^_^


RachelAnn- *blows tons of kisses* It is me Beth! ^_^ Just wanted to say hi! Good luck on your journey for con chair! ^_^ You'll do great! Hope to hear from you soon!

Er... did they announce them in the wrong order, then? Because at both the cosplay and the ending ceremonies, I'm certain I heard it announced that the Harry Potter skit won second, and the Fanboy one took third.

*gasp!* :waaaah: You're RIGHT!! I'll just put it down to tediousness; I'd entered the Hall Fashion numbers first and all those little dots had made me a wee bit tired.

Anyway, it's fixed now. Thanx for the catch!

Rachel Ann, I figure if anyone will know, it will be you ^_^!! I was more concerned in knwing if I'd even placed, and when I told my firends how we fared, the first thing they said was "well, did we win anything in tieing for 4th?" Well, to satiate their curiosity (I'm just happy to know that my costumes were well liked enough to place! oh, we were the shoujo bubbles, by the way), I told them I'd ask, so ask I have ^^;;

thanks for your time ^_^!

Erm, I have a question about the group category photos in the hall contest... my friend Jen and I (Mad Hatter and Raziel of the Angel Sanctuary group, we were listed under "Jen," methinks) were finalists who included our names and badge numbers, and we weren't listed on the list... On one of the other threads, PockyDarcy said we won second place, but now I'm so confused! Could somebody please help? (I feel so torn between feeling overjoyed at winning and disappointed at losing ^^)

Sorry, :lost: but we could only afford to give out prizes to first place. We even needed a couple of donated prizes to cover just them.

Still, 4th place ain't too bad. And you'll have both the warm glow of achievement and the taste of challenge to do better to be your reward for the next year. *ahem* Yeah.... riiiiiiight.

TTFN!

Well, I DO have that one missing photo at ninth place. Someone had taken the photo before we were able to record who it was in the final tally. Was that you guys? On the finalists voting list, you would have been photo #10.

As for winning the category, Angelic Layer was so far ahead, even an airhead like me could figure out who won.

TTFN!

Now that I remember, a girl Jen (Mad Hatter) and I met asked the staff, then us, to take the photo, (it was so flattering!) so that must have been us. Thanks for reminding me!

Thats really a shame, I was in group number three and we have been working on our skit for nearly a month now. To end up in 9th place, I congratulate the winners though I'll just be working harder for the next skit.

Was your group the Evangelion skit? :::Tearry-eyed::: I loved it so much! I was so disappointed you guys didn't win anything (I thought you deserved *something,* at least... I mean, the second I returned home from Shoujocon, I turned on the TV to find Grease was on... I couldn't stop giggling for nearly an hour XD) I'm so glad *somebody* understands the relationship between Kaworu and Shinji other than myself! (Methinks I actually pulled you guys over at one point and let you know how much I loved it ^_^)
You guys did such a great job and it was obvious that you worked very hard for what you did (choreography is not easy, my children. I once arranged a choreographed skit, but that particular con's masquerade was too disorganized to include our music. 'Twas quite disappointing, but that was why I loved having a rehearsal at Shoujocon so much!)

Ummm.. just curios, in case anyone reads this topic anymore. You said that Angelic Layer was THAT far ahead and you could just afford to give prizes to the first place winners? That would be the Angelic Layer guys right? Are you suuuuure you could even afford that. I know from a good source that despite askin multiple times, the winning Group: Angelic Layer people... :), never did recieve anything for thier hard work. Not even recognitionon the Shoujocon page. Wierd huh? Its as if one of them pissed someone off or something. Because they were kinda.. eh... forgotten? I dunno, maybe someone can explain this. Prolly not.

Eriol

You bring this up now, way after the event? Knowing from a good source isn't the same as the people in the Angelic Layer group having a problem. The Angelic Layer group should have complained right after the event/con if they received no prizes. They were announced as winners at the con, so they got recognition there.

The winners were announced at the con and here in this thread. The winner's list was never posted to the website.

Ok, so just to clarify, the 'good source' would be two of the cosplayers in the group. My roomate and I. And we never complained about it because we knew of the financial difficulties Shoujocon was having last year. But we damn sure brought it to thier attention muuuuuultiple times after the event. And as far as the recognition thing goes, yeah Rachel Ann was kind enough to post result at SJC and here at the Cosplay forums. But on the SJC page, If I'm not mistaken, there was a list of '03 Hall contest winners that listed everyone that won, well everyone except for the group hall contest winners. I'm really not getting all worked up about this, because like you mentioned, this was alooooong time ago and all the calling and asking about this was done with once we just stopped getting replies to our emails and phone calls. It's really no big deal. I just happened to be surfin through the forum topics and found this one, I'm definately not trying to get on your bad side Eriol. In fact you were one of the cooler people I met at SJC. Thanks for the reply though.

I'm sorry to hear that this has happened. This appears to be a case of mismanagement (which all cons suffer to varying degree). :/

All I can say is that as the presiding webmaster in 2003, I processed the update requests sent to me. So, if all you saw was the Individual Hall Contest Winners on the SJC website, but not the Group Hall Contest winners, then that is all the information I received.

All I can say is that everybody should cosplay for the fun of it, and not even think about any prizes, awards, or other recognition. No expectations, no disappointments. heh

If the Angelic Layer won first place....like I do remember them doing. And I remeber that they didn't even bother to stay for the closing cermonies. Which is where the prizes were handed out. And they DID have a prize. But if they didn't give proper names. (Since I did the tallies of the cosplay hall contest with the chair) We are not magicians and we can not fly prizes to those who didn't give proper names and address'. The prize was there. I know for a FACT.

If you want to bad mouth ShoujoCon or if you were THAT hyped up on getting your prize then you should have:

1. Done it when you found out you won. (August of last year)
2. Contacted the Con Chair or ANYONE of the many of Staff Memebers
3. Stayed for the Closing Ceremonies

Personally, my feeling is TOUGH LUCK. The prize was there, Rachel Ann did announce it, not just here but in multiple forums, as well as being announced at Closing Cermonies.

You should have given better names other than "Angelic Layer" which was all that was on the form you placed with the hall contest memebers.

At least all of the Princess Tutu group attended.

Eriol my dear- We are the few that do it for the fun, I guess. We should just be crowned the Rulers of the World....or at least me....You can be my Court Jester/Grand Vizer, as we discussed many times before. heh

This person claimed that they tried to contact staff, but no replies were returned. *shrugs*
