Speaking as someone who's competing at Fanime for the first time- albeit with a group of people who have competed before- it seems that these delays are completely against the norm for the convention. I'd heard from my friends before how well-run the competition was, but now it seems to be a major mess, and a total 180 from what it was. I was, and still am, really looking forward to the competition, since this is my first time not just competing here, but with my friends, as well, so it's very concerning to me.

It took me sending an email to the cosplay staff to get a response. I recommend that anyone else who hasn't had their question answered yet take it directly to email or other means of contact. We shouldn't have to do this just to get simple answers, but it seems to be the only way.

Ah, you might have me confused for another poster, but I'll share the answer I got. I asked about walk-ons/display only entries being able to use their own music. If you are a walk-on/display only entry, you are allowed to use your own music.

As an FYI, I sent them an e-mail asking about craftsmanship and sending them additional/updated information.  I'll let y'all know if/when I get a reply.  :)

I agree in this being a total mess. The Masquerade used to be so well run and everything, even though the other years I've been in the Masquerade, I wasn't the one submitting the information, so this is my first time doing so.

I'm also glad we can all help each other and are supportive of one another. ^^ Can't wait to meet you guys during Cosplay Spectacular.

I guess I should reply to the email I was sent to find out if my group is waitlisted or not. He did say we were in, but it's best to make sure.

I just got a reply from Jack.  For Craftsmanship, he just pointed me to the form on the Fanime website.  (I replied asking how we sign up for Craftsmanship judging, since there's nothing on the website for that.)  He also said to e-mail changes to them.  I kinda feel like he didn't even read my e-mail, just skimmed over it and replied in slightly broken English.  (No issue with language spoken, but it seems there might be a communication barrier here somehow.)

*sigh*

Thanks, Jack.  I sent an e-mail, but forgot my name and cosplay name.  I'm drafting that message right now.

And thanks for popping on here and letting folks know what to do.  It's been a little frustrating not knowing for the past few weeks.

FYI to people: Staff turnover occurred this year for many departments, so sluggishness is going to result.  Email directly as recommended in this thread and someone will see and hopefully address your concern.

Hi Attendees

If you are in Craftsmanship judging you will need:
* 1-2 Reference photos of the character they are portraying.  One of these reference photos should show the full profile of the character from head to toe.  Ideally the second one shows the back or focuses on another detail of the costume. 
* 3-5 In Progress photos of their costume construction to document that they worked on making the costume.  Ideally one of these photos will show the contestant working on the costume piece. 
These print outs may be held for the duration of the masquerade, and can be claimed from the masquerade coordinator after the masquerade is over. 

If you have question please send a email at cosplay@fanime.com
thanks

Do you also want a write up? Or just fill out this form? And I assume on the form when it asks "How many conventions have you participated in a costume competition" you are asking how many times I have been in a costume competition, because how many cons is 3, but how many times I have been in a contest is around 8. Different questions, different answers.

I find it really unprofessional that rules and guidelines are being posted on the forum thread and not being sent to the contestants via email. If someone in my group hadn't been stalking this thread, we would have no clue about any of this. A couple of our members didn't even know there WERE forums before she started linking us to updates.

The staff should be emailing the skit groups to ensure they receive the information they need and not posting them here where only half the contestants will see them. I have been doing masquerades at Fanime for a long time but if this gets much worse I may not bother entering next year.

I actually did receive an email with the information posted here, perhaps they have your  email wrong? i received my email before they even posted here. o.o

Oh. Well, I know when we were getting confirmation emails a week or two ago, I hadn't received one, so I emailed about it and was basically told I should have received a mass email, but I'm apparently not on this mailing list--neither were several of my friends who are participating but we all were confirmed? And I guess Jack or whoever else never mad any attempt to fix this, which is still pretty disappointing.
