      I was one of the judges....I was the Beast....just to let you
      know...your costume was very well crafted, we all liked it. The Blade
      costume was well done as well, as was everyone in the contest. I
      found it a lot harder to judge than I thought it would be due to the
      quality of the costumes. You should not have been a wreck onstage,
      you were great, and you could tell you were very into your craft.
      Congrats on what you did and hopefully I will see you next year with
      another fantastic design.

        I sure didn't notice any nervousness from you up there! Came across
        great. Although when I was up there, I sort of froze up for a second
        before I started talking, since I actually wasn't sure beforehand
        exactly what I was gonna say up there. Not sure if anyone noticed.
        So I just spouted off the anti-PSA stuff, and it worked pretty well.
        Can't wait for the video!
