While I have your attention... MHO on
the costume contest procedures.
Having photographed and seen more than my fair share of
costume contests, I feel I can comment on a few things here. Organizers of future cons, please take note.
1. Will you PLEASE keep the contestants for each category on stage already!
This should be done not only for the benefit of those who want to take pictures,
but for the judges. All due respect to the costume contest judges (many of
whom I've know personally), but I can't see how they can judge categories
with a more than a half dozen contestants fairly otherwise. How can you do
a proper rating or comparison when it's over several minutes and
contestants and you can't see all of them together? One goal I'm trying to
accomplish by putting up pictures of the costume contests here is to try
and prevent later bitching about who had what, who didn't, who was better,
etc. And without a group shot, that's almost impossible to do.
Hell, I couldn't even shoot every costume this time around, which leads me
Many fly across the stage like you are late for a dinner
date or something. If you participated in the costume contest in Vegas and
there is no picture of you on this page, 90% for sure that's exactly what
you did. If you are too fast for my camera, you are too fast for the
I think that the proper way to do this is to bring ALL contestants for
each category on stage at once and have each one individually approach the
judges, then go back into line. This will move it along a lot quicker and
afford the judges a chance to compare all of the contestants at any given
2. Keep the judges in between the contestants and the audience (so the
contestants face ALL of us).
This has only been a real problem
at one con (Tucson), but I need to mention it again. Obviously, with the
stars judging at the Hard Rock this couldn't be helped, but under normal
circumstances this is stupid. As much as I don't mind looking at the cute
backside of a Columbia or Trixie, we never get to see the full costume and
if we do its for a second or two when they are showing you the back of
their costume. We want to see it too, and it would also prevent (some) bitching
about the judges choices if we see the same thing they do.
Of course and as always, this is just my opinion... but it's my page... -
