Hallo there!
Post By hideko. 23/12/11, 08:24 am

Hello everyone.

My name is Kaylene, and I'm from Minnesota in the midwestern part of the US. I'm a long-time cosplayer (been doing it for just over a decade now), general anime nerd, artist, filmmaker, researcher, and Japanese teacher. :)

I stumbled across this forum completely on accident, but it was quite fortuitous as I was planning a trip to NZ. (I'm currently writing this from where I'm staying in Auckland!)

A professor that I work with as a research assistant is writing a book on cosplay in the next year or so, and I would love to learn more about the NZ cosplay scene to have a wider view to include in the research gathering for that. So, please tell me all about NZ cosplay!!

Nice to meet you all!! :D

Ooh, welcome to CNZ :). (And New Zealand)

What kind of things would you like to know about cosplay in New Zealand? Maybe start a thread with a questionnaire if you want Very Happy?

Thanks!

A little of everything - how did people get into it, how easy is it to find supplies/what are some of the things that are hard/easy to find, what's the atmosphere at meetups like versus what the NZ con is like, personal philosophies, group dynamics (and how they are formed), etc. :) I'm really curious how it compares to the States and to Japan.

I think I probably will do that. ^^ Actually, I'm in Auckland for a few days, so I'll also probably put a thread in the meetup section and see if anyone would like to meet a few days after Christmas...

welcome to CNZ!
~ I usually make my own cosplays by getting material and patterns, as do some of my friends and my sister.
