I keep hearing sketchy reports about them withholding a masquerade/cosplay skit contest... but if I recall correctly, the cosplay turnout(in opposition to just costume judging)wasn't very high. :\

They still have 15 days or so... don't be surprised if that changes.

Last I heard, the costume contest is still most definitely on. They've never really had a skit contest, not since last year. Really, I think it's because there are usually a lot of entrants, they've got limited time, and since the new "trend" with cons (at Florida conventions, I've noticed) is to have a seperate Cos-play and Costume contests, they're probably focusing on the aspect they feel is easier to judge and keep under control--costumes. It usually takes them almost an hour to judge, and people usually end up going home and everything. However, if they do a costume contest, they can pre-judge and actually get some use out of if (from the rules I've heard, the contest is going to run like JACON did--contest, winners, no downtime). They're not discouraging skits persay--you can still get up on stage and do whatever, but you've only got a minute. You're just not about to get judged on it. Here's a link to the latest info on the costume contest.

Quick disclaimer--I'm not in Anime Sushi, so I'm just expressing opinion here. If you want an answer from them, you might want to just go over to their forums and ask.
