Highlander: It depends on the con... because we have 2 cons a month, or more, (sometimes every week) each con isn't a summary of everything fandom related like it is here (from what i can tell). You have ones which do have guests like i said, like the Anime Music Festival, but there's doujinshi cons, ones which focus more on selling merchandise, game oriented ones. Often there's an auction at every con, sometimes performances by cosplayers, karaoke. Very very often you will have a cosplay competition. We also have anime specific conventions, like 'Reborn Only', 'Ultimate Galaxy' (Saint Seiya con), K-On Party, Vocaloid Party etc.

There are also charity events which isn't a con at all but rather, charity groups sometimes like to invite cosplayers to come as part of the attraction to get people's attention to the event.

Last year a theme park also said free admissions to all cosplayers for a day for their 10 year aniversary too, because we as cosplayers bring attention, we help them advertise without actually costing them anything. Usually at cosplay events that aren't conventions, ones set up by charity groups or at department stores and theme parks, they will have a cosplay parade.

hahaha i understand. Though creepy jokes can be fun too. And i have no idea who any of the characters you just mentioned are. Kilt sounds really expensive though.

I'm kind of overweight. I'd make a really chubby River sad

Pura: The problem is i'm not sure i can get anything done in time to join any group. I already have cosplay projects waiting for me at home when i go back for the holidays and outfits need to be made for that too. And Princess Euphemia doesn't sound like an outfit that will come cheap.

As for me, i will stay in NZ at least for a year, at most 3 years, depending on whether i can get a scholarship for a master's or not. If not i will have to find a cheaper place to study.

Chibi's are not meant to be in proportion.

Um, Ed the computer hacker kid from cowboy bebop, who looks and acts like a boy, but says she is a girl apparently.

Kaolla Su, a 14 year old girl/tomboy from Hinata apartments (Love Hina). She is hyperactive, runs around a lot, glomps people a lot, likes eating. Always building things out of nothing, like the giant flying robot turtle, which she go bored with, and hence threw away. (It made more robot turtles, founded a turtle civilization in the underground bunker by the apartment. When discovered they attacked the apartment, and Kaolla held them off with improvised toy weapons.) Hence collects ALOT of junk. Her room is a jungle recreation of her home country, in which it turns out she is a princess. And it turns out a magical princess. So the unexpected really weird crazy episodes in the middle of a normal Japanese teen drama/soap tend to be hers.

What do you mean by chibi then? Because i get a lot of comments about being Chibi... ChibiBunny ChibiRenji etc.

I never saw that anime, but i have heard the name.

And her! Oh i remember now. From Love Hina, the one with darker skin right? I don't remember that much because I only saw a little bit of Love Hina but never really finished it.

I believe Chibi in Japanese means small. Ie, you are a small person. However in Anime it means characters drawn out of proportion. Normally small body, large head. While it is possible to make a whole anime in Chibi style, it's normally reserved for certain surreal scenes, or super cute scenes. Often associated with cute. Including all the key-chains/figurines/stickers/etc., of Chibi versions of all your favorite anime characters. (Although to say something is cute you say something is Kawaii.)

For example I bet you never thought safety barriers were Kawaii,

We hardly ever have J-rock cosplayers ... We have fans of the bands, but no one really cosplays them. Then again, you can probably get away with it better if you're actually asian xDD.

Not NZ, but ...
