Sometimes talking about your costume becomes kind of like a class presentation. I know from personal experience that my level of talkativity usually depends on the vibes I get from the judges - sometimes, in the case of judges that appear to be bored or distracted, I get so tripped up that I don't explain myself very well - even if I have an entire speech memorized and know what I want to highlight, I go blank! The index cards are a good idea but I don't advise anyone to rely on them too heavily - use them as a guideline in case you feel nervous, and for cosplayers new to competition, it can really help with memorization and confidence, I think.

2014 - Upcoming Conventions :
Anime Weekend Atlanta (GA) - FandomCon (FL)

Upcoming costumes : Suzie Q from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Edea Lee (various versions) from Bravely Default, and more!
