Show off your recognition!

Ever been recognized for your cosplay? Tell it here!
I'll start...
With my Booker DeWitt cosplay:
-Posted on the Kotaku three times
-Posted on the official Bioshock Facebook page three times
-Posted on the Irrational Games Facebook page two times
-Put in a magazine article in PC Games (germany)
-Recieved a gift from Irrational Games for being Booker
-Posted on tumblr on multiple occasions
-Posted on Reddit

If I get any more recognition for my Booker, or another cosplay, I will edit this post.

Let's hear it now! What all have you guys been recognized for?
Also, just so everyone knows, this is not a thread about getting rewards at cons for costume contest, this is being recognized in some kind of source I.E: Newspaper, magazine, website, book, etc.

Well, let's see:

-I had my Byakko costume in Cosmode a few years back in one of their joint articles with cos.com
-Several of my costumes (Madam Red, Ichihara Yuuko, and Anarchy Stocking with my friend as Anarchy Panty) were just published in the book 1000 Incredible Costume & Cosplay Ideas
-Just a few weeks ago one of my photos of my steampunk wind-up doll was published in our local newspaper with an article about the growing new anime convention here.
-It wasn't specifically for a single costume, but I was invited as a cosplay guest at a Japanese Festival at the Memphis Botanic Gardens to be there to explain cosplay to the festival goers.
-Also not for a specific costume, but as a cosplayer in general, the convention that I mentioned the newspaper article about, asked me to be a guest judge for their cosplay contest this year since they were looking for someone they thought would be a good craftsmanship judge. That was a real honor for me because I want to be able to do that more since I love seeing people who are proud of their work and want to share it.

Someone from a convention recognized me while I was working at the grocery store. I bagged their order while we talked about how I was Izaya. That's about all the recognition I got.

None of my cosplay stuff got recognized...well not to my knowledge anyways but my steampunk stuff got chosen to be on Hawaii Five-0 twice. Once for the Spectacu Con episode in season 1 and the Halloween episode in season 3 I think. Man that was fun being on set.

I mostly been recognized for my Viewtiful Joe (2012 edition, not the one in the picture) on the "cosplayingwhileblack" tumblr, ScrewAttack and another site that I forgot about. I hope my Link cosplay gets as much recognition since I put more time in it then my VJ cosplay.

Cosplayed as Bluezam from Beet the Vandel Buster. It was my first cosplay and I already knew it was probably not be recognized as it is from a more obscure series.

My first cosplay Sebastian received recognition from Cosplay Corner and got an interview. And then I also received an interview as well from GamezMentor for my Catwoman cosplay.
