Hallway Contest 2012 Feedback
Posted 04 May 2012 - 02:15 AM
Things I'm already thinking about changing:
-No one showed up on Thursday, so I'm completely nixing Thursday hours
-Thinking about restructuring awards a little bit
-Next year we WILL have a photo booth, if I have to do it my damned self, it ended up falling through because of elements out of my control
-Obviously the hours need to change again since Thursday was a bust

One of your Hallway Cosplay judges here - I am happy to provide feedback to any entries looking for advice, feedback or answers to questions about their costumes. If you post here, please include what you wore and what day you came in. I can PM you so the conversation can stay private. Or you can PM me, too.
I can also ask the other judges to join in so you can get up to 3 judges worth of feedback

So, had they happened, I was totally looking forward to half time show and photobooth! They are among some of the things that I don't usually see at masquerades, plus perhaps you could have a more engaging awards ceremony? I mean, ignoring this year's ACen, many awards at the end of the masquerades in general kind of get thrown under the bus when the audience just gets up and leave, so perhaps try and schedule something *after* awards to keep the audience around to see who got what. =) Maybe a surprise guest or skit or something? Keep it last, though, so once awards are over, there's no worrying about delaying the masquerade!
Friday: Still debating, but probably Disney!
Saturday: Sheryl Nome (cowgirl) + surprise cosplay

It was a little more confusing at the actual masquerade, though I suppose that was partially my fault since I couldn't keep my cell phone on me (haven't quite figured out how to sew pockets, haha), and my roommate was only able to find me to tell me he'd gotten a call like right when the masquerade started. I'm not sure if there were instructions on what to do in the phone message, I think it was a bit hard to hear, but I was kinda confused when I went in, so I guess I ended up sort of in the wrong section. But again, prolly more my fault than anything else.
I'd definitely like to hear feedback on my costume, though! I pretty much just entered to see how things work, and since I liked how my sword turned out, so I was super surprised and excited to hear that I'd gotten an award. And especially since I'm still really new to the whole costuming thing, it'd be really useful to get feedback to guide how I do my future cosplays as well.
edit: Oops, forgot to mention that I came in Friday around 5:30 or so. I think I was entry 13?

I really enjoyed competing with you guys. It was really comfortable and even though I was nervous you did not attack me with fancy words and no one badmouthed my choices of materials (like Crayola Model magic )
