Hi! c:
Post By Kuri. 26/01/13, 08:04 am

Hello there. It's a pleasure to meet you all. :) My name is Claudia. I'm just one of the many otakus scattered throughout Auckland. I actually came to your annual Cosplay Picnic Event today, just to see what it was like, and I heard of this site. So now I'm here! =D I'm fourteen years old (or at least, fourteen in a month or so), though age is really just a number in my humble opinion. I generally watch anything and everything, though my favorite genre of anime is psychological/suspense thrillers. c: I'm also learning how to sew. It's my goal to someday be able to make myself my own cosplay of Princess Mononoke. *o*
Anyhow I actually don't have any friends. I'm home-schooled and I got bullied a lot back at my time in school, so I hope to meet some nice people here with similar interests. ^.^ I'm glad I discovered this site, it's great to know New Zealand has a good anime fanbase. Very Happy Again, it's a pleasure to meet you all! Expect to see me around here more. :)

Ah, right, you wouldn't have Overload. ;.; Though you're right. Guess it becomes a special luxury. (Though look at the Americans...20 cons a year in every state. xD)

I watch anything, nor do I have a particular favorite. xD ;~; As for Cosplay I've never cosplayed before, though I'm learning to sew and I have accomplished sewing a straight line which is a pretty happy achievement for me. Very Happy xD Hope to one day go as Princess Mononoke or Sayaka from Madoka Magica. :p
How about you? What kind of series do you get into? (Nice cosplay in your pic by the way. o:)

Well what stuff have you watched then? Razz

Are you teaching yourself to sew? It's always fun learning sew Very Happy It's also fun learning advanced sewing techniques xD I'm currently doing a patten making course and it's really fun xD

And thanks Very Happy. I won best in show at Christchurch Armageddon last year with it, so that's like my main achievement of last year, lol. Sometimes I feel like I'm back at the stage of learning to sew xDD

I mainly prefer anime with a serious plot line, lol. My favourites are D.Gray-Man, Eureka Seven, Code Geass, etc. They are all pretty serious xDD. I've been trying to get through my back log of anime recently, so I just finished Princess Tutu, Another and currently nearly finished InuXBoku SS.

Madoka Magica, Death Note, Wolf's Rain, Ghost Hound, Eden of the East and Mushishi to name a few. I hope to watch Akira soon, have heard so many great things about that one but I've pitifully never gotten around to watching it, along with Kara no Kyoukai. *o* Sword of the stranger is meant to be good too, with really detailed sword fights. Blargh, I have too many series I need to watch. ;~;

That sounds fun! Very Happy Yeah I'm teaching myself. Best to just learn from trial and error, and more error, and youtube tutorials when you can't figure it out for yourself~ xD It seems an awesome skill to learn though.

Oh congratulations! ^.^ That's great! You must feel proud when you finish making a cosplay, but winning something for it would just be the most epic feeling. Very Happy

Ah same. Very Happy Never seen Eureka Seven, heard good things about the series though. Backlogs get filled up so quick, though that's the good thing about anime. You never run out of something to watch. xD

Eden of the East and Mushishi are really awesome, hehe. And yeah, I have a massive backlog too, I don't think I'll ever be able to watch all the anime that I actually have, lol. Eureka Seven is amazing =w= The sequel came out last year, even though the original came out in like 2005-2007, or something. So it was nice to come back to one of my favourites in a way Very Happy.

And sure you can send a friend request Razz I don't think I've ever used that function of CNZ before, lol.
