I'm definitely considering entering, but it all depends on whether I can get a job in Auckland and thus afford to come down and join in. =)

If I do, I'll probably either be using my Mephisto cosplay, or my Nier one, depending on whether or not I get the latter finished.

Can it be a mixture of anime/original? As in I have a pic of Sakura holding up a kimono that she considers wearing but you can only see the design of the fabric and not what it ends up looking like, so I've had to guess at the obi colour/design and under kimono colour. Could I enter that?

certainly!
we are quite lenient as long as the character you are cosplaying is from a Japanese source!
(i'm actually entering a fan-design myself)

I've decided to enter but my costume is not fully complete (minus a pair of gloves) - will that deduct points/matter too much in the way of judging?

the judging is by audience poll throughout the day, so as long as the outfit is distinctively cosplay-looking anything is fine~

So are we not allowed to have an original cosplay?
For example japanese high school girl cosplay(no particular character) or maid cosplay(no particular character..).
Are those not allowed?

Original designs for a character is okay but we would like the cosplay to be sourced from something, just to differentiate it from dress up~ ^-^
(and to encourage more chch ppl to get in to character cosplaying!)
