Re: A Quick Thank You!!!!
- It was good talking with you before the costume contest. Also, you
did a fantastic job running the Quick Sketch.
I had an amazing time this year. I was honored to be asked to help
with the anime costume judging and had a great time with the
Alienated Productions crew at the contest, panel and my last-minute
judge training. I had a lot of fun and look forward to doing it again.
I ended up spending more time at my booth than I had originally
anticipated, so I didn't get to see as much of the show as I usually
do, but I really enjoyed what I saw. The Quick Sketch is always my
favorite part of the show, and the Charity Auction was quite fun as
well. Tommy Castillo, Glenn Barbis and the other auctioneers should
be applauded for their efforts.
The show was exhausting, but a great amount of fun.
