I'm just gonna copy/paste what I said in the AM forums, because it's the best way I know how to put it:
"Dearest Anime Matsuri~,
My name is Hopie and I'm with the cosplay group Twinzik, who won Best of Show last year at the cosplay contest. I just wanted to let you guys know how excited we are for this year's convention, and how much we always look forward to working with everyone as far as the cosplay contest is concerned.
Also, I don't know if you guys realize how much it meant to us as cosplayers that you brought the Yume prelims to Texas. Texas has yet to have any kind of large prize like that, and I was soooo thankful that we even had the opportunity to compete for it! I truly hope with all my heart that you guys will bring it back this year, as it's a fantastic opportunity for little people such as myself to go all out and try for something great. I also know many other spectacular cosplayers who would love to try for this prize again as well. -and heck, we had the winning team last year! (Go Jenny & Beauty!) So that just goes to show Texas has some awesome talent that I think New York needs to see.
So again, I just wanted to thank you guys for all of your hard work, and to let you know just how much it all means to us. I know this year will be even better than last! Thank you~. <3"
There's also this same poll on the forums listed above, and I'd appreciate everyone's help there as well! Thanks so much!
