Wooot!!! Excellent :) And TinTango that offer to help paint you up is still there ;) I have product and am not afraid to use it ;)

*whisper*Tuffnut*/whisper* Except I'll probably pet your wig again....



And edited to add: We can be there from 9am so I'm probably going to be there early so to avoid wandering too far with clown make up... Bald cap and red and white paint, I mean really...

@neimhaille
That's what I was thinking. Everyone loves vikings.

Unfortunately, TinTango's dad can't take me anymore so I am not able to come. And according to Maxx the trains won't be running that weekend either.

A taxi is out of the question.

If only dragons really existed. Oh well. Can't be helped.

I have boosted the signal to the SCA so fingers crossed. How far would a bus get you? It may be possible to get a shuttle service sorted between bus and venue.

I'm also thinking we could have a chill out dinner somewhere local? Or in town so that we can all get public transport home from there for those who need it but carpool to the city?

Mark (who runs the events) is going to ask his team tomorrow if anyone can help :) So fingers crossed :)


@theconniebro I hope you have a nice time at the event whether you are there for yourself, or as a minder or volunteer :) If you are able feel free to come up and say hi :) I'll have the huge latex headpiece (horns and tentacles with stripes, because more is more).

That would be lovely :) So does anyone have a preference for where to go in town on a Saturday night?

I have no preference for what or where so long as it is able to cope with a booking and changing numbers ;)

Heehee, I've got a bald cap, body paint and prosthetic aide to remove myself ;) And a huge headpiece (1m from top to tail) so will be in a similar position.

I should be able to wrangle my gear on a bus but if anyone has a car we could store costumes in in town?

So.... a food court is kind of not at all a nice atmosphere, but we also want a place we can sort of have a booking that is flexible...

The offer is still there for to use my paints and glues :) I have just rearranged my make up kit so I can actually wrangle myself, my headdress and kit on the buses :)

Brushes, removers, skin care, now I just need a hair brush... or comb.

I should be there around 9.10/9.15 unless the bus from the corner of Dominion/Balmoral/Green Lane is missed and I wind up walking that couple of km ;)

Now to finish painting... oy. Yay?

There are quite a few good korean restaurants in the city. There are also a lot of decently priced restaurants that dont require a booking.

I cant remember the name of any particular restaurant at the moment though..

Queen's Head tavern as was is a Korean restaurant still I think? It was in 2009 and I think last year.

I don't think we will have a huge number of people so we may not need a booking? I can probably though get a bus to the city when the event ends, wander in make a booking using Cosplay NZ as the booking name.

Say 7pm? or would 6.30 be better? The event finishes at 4ish, maybe a bit earlier so there should be time to change in between for those who wish to do so :)

I will de-paint at the venue and then bus to the city so should be there in plenty of time to make a booking in person and then nap, er read at the library :) And hopefully post from there any update.

I've just finished sewing, I'm missing a couple of little details like the necklace but I figure it won't matter too much. Heading off to sleep so I don't look tired and grumpy XD

Probably won't be able to do dinner because I'm co-ordinating a lift with my dad, but I'll see you all there are 10-10:30 maybe.

Excellent I am almost out the door, just packing :) I've updated the first page with official start times and if I am not at the doors please do say you are with me (Michaela de Bruce) to help out. I will most likely still be painting up a storm upstairs :)

I am currently sporting black out lenses and a balc cap. No ears cut out so I look like an alien already ;)

Sorry, we were all a little exhausted and going in all different directions. Would love to have an Auckland dinner at some stage though :)

Thank you again fleyer, TinTango and Arjay :) The kids just loved the fairytale characters.

I got called Padme at one stage which would have made for an interesting alt. universe story...

It was really cool to meet those of you I didn't know, and catch up with the familiar faces I did. Can't wait for the next one. Very Happy

Haha thank you, I wish I'd had more time to put the curls in the wig and fixed up the front a little but no matter.

I hope more people decide to come next year, it truly is a great experience. I will be able to lend that outfit with any luck to get more people to come =P

I remember going to one of these when I was little. If I knew earlier in the year I would of Rocked on up to the New Plymouth one. Maybe next years one : D I'd have a bunch of friends who would love to do this with me.

It was such a nice event when I was little I remember meeting the Whatnow presenters at the time Jason Fartfoy and Paul the Chef. I think Props boy was there too.
