Hi, my name is John and I'm the cosplay coordinator for NDK. I apologize for the late introduction or any other internet faux pas I have or will undoubtbly commit as I am not the most versed in netiquette and normally shy away from discussion threads and message boards. In the interest of wanting to keep NDK's various costume contests an enjoyable experience for all involved (with the possible exception of me and my staff) I thought that I would try pursuing other avenues of information exchange other than answering e-mails from the NDK website. Speaking of the website, the rules for 2005 have been posted at http://www.ndk.cc/NDKccrules.html
So, if anybody has any questions/comments concerning how we run NDK's costume/cosplay contests and why we do it that way I would very much like to hear them.
Constructive comments/suggestions/discussions are always welcome.
