Hahaha, not quite. As one of the Dirge of Cerberus guys, I can tell you that we got best group, not best skit. Razz I did actually post that information up, but my computer keeps converting bbcode into html so whenever I use an open tag, like in a "doh" emote, it deletes everything after it. @_@

Soi Fong is on our forums, she's Rika Furude, and I know s-in-c was Patti in Lennons group.

At Welly,
Belle from beauty and the beast - iwuvanime, and Jane from Tarzan - mightydelemma won performance.

The Tick and Arthur got an honourabe mention, but I dont think they have an account on here.

(oh so not only do you guys generally tease me about my memory, but now you're blaming me when you forget things to? =P)

Isaaru is Bonnie and Yojimbo was Diana? I think that was their names. I know their DA usernames though ;D. Icarus will know.

Tick was Philippa (if Tick was the blue one). I don't think she has an account here.

Wasn't the last Honourable mention for Lennon and Mehgan(sp?) (IcyRose and ... Yeah, I fail with username *headdesk* Blossoms_in_blazing_wind or something similar).

Yup, it was, they looked great :) You know what's the best part about all this? Everyone who won something, we know exactly why they won. There's no going, "um...what? why?!" like there was a few years ago - mad, MAD props to michaela and ange for being incredibly fair, and fantastic judges! Even if ange had to put on her mean face when people arrived late XP

Thanks for everyone who participated, want's to participate, and generally have just a huge amount of fun.

I hate having to wear my grumpy face, but the competition is getting to the point, where if you are committed to entering, then you need to make sure you register on time, and that you turn up for the judging at the time specified.

We as judges realise things happen and can fall apart. The rules are in place so everything is fair, and people are safe.

We do apologise that we could not fit everyone into the room, as we said due to the fire regulations we were only allowed a maximum of 50 people in the room.

I will admit that even though the room was smaller than we would have liked, it was much much better than the garage that we were in last year, where it was so cold you could sometimes see your breath, or the curtained off room that was so dark we could barely see anything, and was so exposed that I almost got into a fight with people that were not involved in the cosplay and wanted to push their way inside.

Congratulations to all the winners and honourable mentions, you guys are upping the game every year, and making it not only hard, but so much fun to be involved in the cosplay.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Also you guys rock in organising the cards in both Christchurch and Wellington. You made M and I both cry, it is sooo touching and lovely, and it's because of this community that has made the juding such a joy.....even if our job is pretty hard in working out who wins what...

Hugs to you all.

...That's been there for a couple of months? o_O It's from Auckgeddon last year. :)

@Angellsnz: Thanks for the list! Very Happy *updates* You guys did so well with the judging this year, especially with the cramped conditions! Not to mention the Jem performance was a total treat. <3 You're very, very welcome for the cards. ;D My staff discount at whitcoulls comes in handy sometimes, hahah. I don't think I've ever been so happy to see someone cry before! Razz

I knew she was on here, hahah, I just forgot what her username was. I also knew the name of your group (how could I forget? Clan Biscuit and Rose and Blossom are practically sister-troupes) -- I just forgot to add it in. >.< As for the Death the Kid photo - if you can link another one, I'll update it. Very Happy
