Adding a new prize to the main post - we just heard from SteamPixie and they're donating $15 certificates for Best in Class Novice and Best in Class Journeyman. They specialize in masks and steampunk inspired jewelry and trinkets.

And I just came back to update again - CostumeCon32 organizers decided to donate a Membership for Best in Show!

Crazy!

Also - This is MY LAST POST BEFORE THE CONVENTION. I'll just be *way* too busy with con duties and real life stuff that's happening at the same time to update. If you have any questions about the Masquerade while at the convention, drop by the Masq Office (Doubletree South Lobby Coat Check) and ask there - someone will likely know the answer.

See you all at the con!

This is the first year I've considered entering the Masquerade, and I'm slightly terrified. I want to enter in my Four Aces Dave Strider cosplay, but I'm not sure whether I would even qualify to be in Novice or if I should go with being in the Out of Competition segment... I bought a suit and modified it, a long with making the props, but I'm too afraid that this would be classified as bought and would be null(is that the right word to use?) if I entered in the Novice category.

I'm pretty sure your costume wouldn't qualify, but if you made all the props, you can go in with just having your props judged...

Yes, ask at the masq desk to be sure, but it might be ok if you specify clearly that only the props are being judged.

Just curious, if anyone is still around....can you bring a friend with you into the green room if they aren't actually going on stage with you? To hang out, help you get ready, makeup touch-ups etc.

Yes, support staff are allowed (they have been in the past for me). They need to have Anime North passes though

I'll apologies here as there was an error (or lack of check mark) for what category I was in on my sheet. I printed mine out so that it would be legible (I'm a horrible speller) so I just checked the file to see that it was indeed left that area blank.

I was so focused on the info, it slipped my mind and when I passed it in at the registration desk the man only skimmed the sheet as well as he was by himself and did not add anything to it or asked about it. Someone when sorting must has filled it in as Novice latter on.

So when I was waiting of for the Artisan judging just before 8pm I was sorely confused why my group name and number wasn't on the list but also thinking I might have goofed and put us down and Journeyman. It wasn't until we were on stage that I heard NOVICE! We were group 36 (Foxy Ladies) and we were slotted into the Novice category (to the horror of our den probably as I was tiring to reassure them that we were not in their class all night).

I feel bad because we won in Novice as well ... That's not fair to the other contestants and I'd rather have not won anything in my category instead if it would have been the case.

yeah, I remember you saying that, and then when I saw the list of awards on Sunday I was like... man they really judged them as Novice! Does anyone know if they can do anything about this? I mean, I was in Novice and I'm not trying to bump you up so I get something or anything, but it almost seems more unfair to YOU then anyone else... If you're Artisan, then you want your awards at that level...

Awards listings are in the Official Anime North Forums here: http://teahouseofthemaplemoon.yuku.com/topic/4068

Ani_BEE I'll suspect it was simply a clerical error of some kind.
I'll have a look at your sheet tomorrow and let you know.

I don't think anybody would think you'd sandbag and I still maintain
your costumes were lovely on stage and awardable.

Could contact info be provided for the photographer that took photos after each entry was onstage? We didn't receive a card from them, and are interested in getting some of the shots taken.

Thanks
