I know its a little late to ask but I was wondering if anyone received a hall costume award? I saw on the anime page for FanExpo that they were going to give them out (via the voice actors and some con staff). I didn't see anyone with a ribbon though. Since there was a lack of cosplay I thought I would see a bunch of people with ribbons but I saw none, nor did I over hear anyone mention anything about them. I'm just really curious
I know that the girl cosplaying as Sewer Urchin got a hall cosplay award. I was sitting next to her when the con staff came by and gave her what looked like a button or a pin.
And she totally deserved it, too! Her costume was awesome.
I finally got one this year! kind of funny it was the one cosplay not many people photographed, but I was told some awesome things about my talent for it and to keep it up. It was so wonderful to hear such words of encouragement after I've had such a bad year cosplay wise.
