My memory's not that fantastic, so about all I can tell you is I know (well just met) the guy who won a judge's award for craftsmanship - the guy dressed as Alucard from Hellsing. That was his first cosplay, and he did it all himself. If I were a suspicious person I would have thought he was lying, but I'm not, and he wasn't, anyway. Lovely work, and I'd add that he was carrying partially metal guns around the whole con while wearing a full-length 100% wool coat. He swore he wasn't hot . . . oO;;;

Who the winners really were... that's an excellent question. I believe you can get all the info from this message: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/cosp/message/45432 except the Stichin' Babes, who got honorable mention for presentation.
And the Hellsing guy was super cool! I was impressed by the fact that he was so new to the whole cosplay thing!He was just in front of me during the masquerade (yikes to following a winning act ^^; ) and he was great to talk to for all those long backstage hours! XD

I posted all the winners on the AX site:
It also lists the entry numbers so if you have a Masquerade video you can figure out which ones they were. Just remember that entry 1 was the Delano High School Ensemble, and entry 2 was the Para Para dancing (with the movie) by Anime Jungle. Entries 3 - 52 were competing entries, and entry 53 was a special presentation.
I'm working on a big old AX Masquerade Aftermath site right now, but I'm also really busy with AXNY so it may not be done for a few weeks. At least the winners are up :)
Congrats to everyone, you were great :D

heh, Thank you for your kind words, but I would like to point out that My award was not for my costumes craftmanship, it was for best individual presenation, there were many far better constucted costumes that mine, in my opinion, Celines being one of them. :) and Celine, you were awesome to talk to backstage as well, your dress was gorgeous
