The cosplay judge gave me and my friends a really hard time last year. >.< We volunteered to go last because our skit was long, but then she wouldn't let us do our skit, and said it was OUR fault because some of our people were outside the door. I ended up feeling really bad for my friends, because they literally waited for two hours outside doing nothing. I'm so glad she 'retired.'
The stage performance part was a nightmare on it's own. There was boxing like, two meters away from the stage. The cosplayers had microphones, but nevertheless, nobody could hear anything because of the boxing. I couldn't believe how unorganised everything came to be.
Ah well. At least some of the cosplayers were nice. ^^
