Cosplay appreciation thread! <3
Post By Tails. 25/11/10, 12:07 pm

So after the whole 4chan fiasco, I know a lot of people are feeling pretty bummed after being trolled/seeing friends get trolled. So why don't we have a thread showing our appreciation for cosplay and cosplayers?



I'll start!

I met acidpinkbunny and RegnieRiku about a year ago, and since then we've done some cosplays together. They are an awesome power cosplay couple, so I'm glad when they let me tag along! They won a best technical this year for their Assassin Creed cosplays, which they really deserved! So I think they are awesome. Whoo! Very Happy

our Fruits Basket cosplays together~ whee

So yeah! Share the love, kupo~ chuu~!

I really appreciate Pyro! She's such an amazing cosplayer and friend to me, always being there when I need a hand~ Plus she's just so damn talented, she makes me want to strive as a cosplayer;;

I am going to ramble on in a similar but different vein here. So feel free to skip it. But I just wanted to say - if it weren't for cosplay or CNZ, all the amazing people that I have come to know so well and love so much now, I never would have met or gotten to know... ever.

It's not just because we're all active in our awesome geekiness and we rely on each other solely for it that we've gotten to know each other so well, but even just because it forms a small, similar thread of interest when meeting new people - and somehow just by that one fact, you're usually able to hit it off really well. Not only this, but you're able to form unbelievably strong relationships over very short periods of time as well. Hell, there's even a few people here that I've known for a long time that I'd never have gotten to know this well if it hadn't been for this one chance in a million piece of common ground. And I love it.

The cosplay part doesn't even have to be everything, it can just be something in the background that you rarely talk lots about, but you know it's there and it forms a kind of... bond, I guess. It's... kind of a strange thing, actually. Without this place I suppose my friend group is suddenly cut down by way more than half. I'd venture even 80% (yeeaah, I know... I am a sad person).
I only do about two 'community based' activities (cosplay and Table Tennis, the latter even then being very small and heavily male dominated/very void of girls my own age) and at Uni the classes are so big and you see people so infrequently... Not to mention I can be terribly shy and awkward at times (lol).

I guess bonding over cosplay and it making up my main friend group could be considered extremely lame, but oh well....

Really though, without it, would it have ever been possible to get to know so many different people all over the country (heck, or even in our own cities) the way we do now? Nooo siree! We've come a looooong way from them Ye Olde Coscom days (oh yes, I know some of you remember those) and we've come MILES from a 700-page "WellyGeddon 07!!" and however-many-page AuckGeddon thread to a 1000-member strong nationwide community! So I am very grateful.

So thanks, mods of modly awesomeness, for making this place. Thanks, all you cool people, for making the community. Thanks, to all the people I've gotten to know and love so well. Thanks to all my coscom day peeps 8Db I love you and you and you and you... and you, too. <3





....sorry for rambling. Razz

Li-Bai said it all for me. Above the geeking out, the creation of costumes and the fun events - the community of CNZ is the best thing about cosplaying in New Zealand. You're all so friendly and amazing; always ready to help out someone in need.

Thanks to CNZ I've become great friends with people I would have never normally met, whom I cherish wholeheartedly. Although cosplay in itself is wonderful, I think CNZ deserves all the credit. Yay mods. :3

Also, 4chan fiasco? Whatisthisidonteven-

Alright... here goes nothing
I love all you guys and the people I've had the pleasure of hanging out with at geddons, you guys are the nicest people I have ever met. I can't wait to get to know more of you better and meet those of you I haven't yet. Everybody here isa so talented, from the comp winners who have been at it for years to the 13 yr old mafia who are already great and have so much potential still to come.
And I'm going to name some people and why they deserve to be appreciated: Azeria (and to think I never thought after you left in year 8 we'd even see each other again haha, you rock), Icarus (you are an amazing cosplayer, person and I'm so glad I share so many fandoms with you), Casey (you're really nice and have come so far from where you began and seeing your pics in the progress thread, things look great), Fartz (dude, you're awesome, please don't be afraid to crossplay and just go for it), Tails (talented, nice and damn you made an awesome Tidus), Static (those sewing skillz are mad), the mod team (you do an awesome job of being modly. Manly or otherwise), Kitten (the forums would not be the same place without your inappropriate comments)... I need to get back to studying but be assured that I could go on.

Man. If my friend hadn't talked me into going to ChchGeddon(not that I needed much convincing!), I never would have met you guys. Well, granted, I never really met any of you at ChchGeddon, but that was what started my cosplaying! NZAE and AuckGeddon were AMAZING, because everybody is so friendly and nice. <333333333 I don't have much to say that would top everybody elses comments, but I agree with you aaaaall!
And Fartz, lol. It's so true. It so is kindergarden.

To these people who are special to me, I want to say this:

Lennon & Meghan: You guys are my best friends and have always been there for me through thick and thin. I only get to see you guys a few times a year but those times are special to me and I have many fond memories of them At Geddons, you always stick by me, keeping me safe, reassuring me, fixing any cosplays mishaps I might have (That darn Euphie wig!) and just hanging out in general. I love our photoshoots together and our chats on Msn. I love you guys! chuu~!

Lucy: You were the one who introduced me to CNZ and gave me the courage to join the forums, without your encouragement I might never have done so. You also let a bunch of us invade your house and me hang out in your room at NZAE plus you are an awesome mod! Very Happy

Angie: You were the one who invited me to my first CCC meeting and the first CCC I met, I will never forget our chat on the flight home and how nice you were. You are always cheerful and nice to everyone as well as being a top Mod! Very Happy

Mandie: You put so much effort into organizing sunday nights and you try to make it fun and fair for everyone, we love you for it! Very Happy

I love everyone in the CCC and most people here on CNZ, you guys are great and the forums and cosplay would not be the same without you. I'm glad I had the chance to meet and hang out with you guys, my life would not be the same otherwise, definitely not as interesting, lol. Razz I love how everyone bands together and supports each other and helps each other out, CNZ is awesome like this and I'm proud to be a part of it! thumbsup: nodnod

I have thank Tails for making this thread and coming up with the idea, and making the attempt to heal the wounds that have almost been broken, and just gather up the family and get everybody together and mention how special and wonderful the CNZ family are. Instead of trying to cause more drama, or start a fight with the troll that's trying to make CNZ look like a awful community, she's decided that it would be best to put everybody's hands together and join everybody in peace.

You're epically awesome Tails. Clap

Hehe, I'm such a whore.

But actually, I really want to thank the Chch cosplayers for being so welcoming when I moved down at the beginning of this year. I can't imagine how boring my life would be without you guys~ <3 Special mentions of course include Mandie (/stalkstalkstalk), Suzi (Heeeeeeey ;3), John (This doesn't need an explanation) and Ben (I'm not a whalewhateveryoucallme <3) but you all hold a special place in my heart ^.^
