Thanks! Yeah, my walkon was kind of a disaster (a combination of panic from a broken-at-last-minute circuit and not having practiced as much as I'd have liked means I basically forgot to end it as planned), I sure as heck wasn't expecting any stage awards of any kind :P. My point wasn't so much along the lines of stage presentation, though, more like "I don't feel like enough judges give workmanship points/fair attention to electronics/major props." Since it was the majority of what made my cosplay my cosplay, not just an extra, I felt like I only got half my costume looked at when the focus was almost solely on my sewing. (Also, yes, numerous improvements are being done for AN! Especially those infernal armpieces.)
Help me get rid of my parasprite swarm!
