mhm, I full heartedly agree with Jiano Solo. I won't repeat much but i've definitly seen some well-made and thought out costumes who didn't get much (or any) attention.
Keeping the audience's attention is kinda difficult if you happen to do a walk-on after some flashy performance. I have a hard time figuring out a skit, so I end up with a lil ol boring walk-on -_-`
Some may not be the most interesting to watch, but I go to these cosplay competitions to see what skills are out there. If my post was kinda rantish, forgive me..I'll leave now :P
