Oh gods, Twilight! Why TV3, WHHYYY?!?! SO many things to go on and you use THAT?!?!

@Nina - Ahahahaha! I kinda wish I knew what it said, it's odd having your photo used in an article and not knowing what it actually says. X3 Thanks for linking it through, though! :3

I can fail!translate.... Simp C is not my thing.... ^_^;;

Armageddon Expo is a big-scale event gathering thingy for people who love anime/manga and fantasy films/battle something fans?
(OMG info fail?) It's held once during April every year at Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
Previous events' attendants mainly involve young people and children but some adults as well (Errr, info fail?).
They all have a similar interest/passion, that's loving animanga stories of good/evil battles, sci-fi & fantasy stories and games.
(=_= ORZ) This year they invited guests that's popular with young un's from the movie "New Moon" and "Heroes (or something)". Blah Blah for autographs, take a photo together for memorial etc etc...

.... I'll continue to translate and edit my post afterwards orz

Every event goes on for 3 days at each city (info fail?) and there are different content on each day.
For those something fans, something still participates in all 3 days. Welly's event is held at w/e the place is TSB Bank Arena every year.
From April 2nd to 4th this year something blahl blah happens to be on something date for Fans. Lotsa animanga merch/products, autograph signings, Cosplay Contest, movie screenings, and something about video games.
Those who come to this event can participate in "Cosplay" and dress up as a favourite character. If you have confidence and something you can participate in the Cosplay Contest on the last day, and there's prizes up for grabs!
Within the 3 days the people at the event [can't make out word, too blurry], and passionately something.
Things like ice cream eating comp are all part of the event's fun activities. This year id you have enough $ you can eat dinner with your favourite celeb. You can even see lots of people at the event wearing "weird/fascinating clothes" who [something, can't read], of course every person brings their own camera so they can take a picture with their [some sort of people] cosplayers.

They are different to something something hobbyists?, fans of animanga and sci-fi/fantasy give out a bigger, and more enjoyable atmosphere for something (sorry I'm failing xP). That is infinite something, and infinite imagination.

Sorry guys, I'm terrible at this. But at least you can get a gist of what teh article is about.

No Tails shots. And apparently at the Ball we had on-site Body Painting and prosthetics. Were they before I arrived? Razz
"Costume gets steamy" is the most fail-tastic headline though. WE DO NOT NEED MORE PEOPLE ASSOCIATING US WITH SEX!
The article is mostly about Steampunk, (despite the Cloud and Naruto... person on the cover of Indulgence) and the cosplay is kinda thrown in there.

It was so weird being woken up by a facebook txt from a non-cosplay friend saying "your picture is in the dom post"
I was like WHAT?
don't you mean Gabby because shes a NZ next top model finalist
Nope "the one of you with the umbrella"
huh? until i saw the cover of Indulgence i thought he was talking about my last years hokouni fashion awards entry because it used the same parasol and a runway photo of it got in the The Press and the Otago Daily Times

@u_ne_korn --same, i was really conflussed and slightly worryed by the headline until i saw the pics

The headline was stupid, and I am so confused as to why they picked the photos they did...i sent through the ones of Victorian Couture and the girl genius when they said they wanted a couple more. I also sent through ones of Diana and Tails, but they didn't use them...sadface. And the small pic on page 2 is mine as well - this is the second time it's been printed and not physics credited!! Pictures of the article - and I will spoiler this as soon as they work again!
