Here for research!
Post By Liz. 25/05/10, 02:42 pm

Hi CNZ!

My name's Elizabeth, or Liz - some of you may have spoken with me at some point, at least the Wellingtonians. I'm working on a research project for my honours in cultural anthropology (at Victoria University) on cosplay in NZ. Since these forums seem like the place to be, I thought I should come and have a look around.

Just for the record, although I hope that I'll learn some useful things on these forums, I won't be using anything I've learned without telling you, I won't quote anyone without their permission, and even if I do I won't associate a username with the quote. If you want to know more about my project or any details about ths stuff, message me and I'm happy to clarify!

So, I'll hopefully be around a bit and you guys can tell me something about what cosplay's all about. I'll look forward to it!

~Liz.

Welcome!! Cultural Anthro is pretty interesting though I prefer the archaeology side myself. As most of the others have said we're a pretty open bunch of people so don't hesitate to ask your questions!

Wow, an overwhelming response, thanks everyone ^_^

@RainbowMoonDust: I'm looking at cosplayrs in NZ, Wellington in particular since that's where I am (but all your contributions are welcome! The internet is handy like that!). Right now I don't have that much of a focus though - I'm hoping you guys can help me with that! If something comes up which you guys seem to think is important, odds are it will make it into my essay.

@JVCA: Anyone who contributes to the research can request a summary of the essay after it's finished, so you can find out what I wrote (without having to read the whole 8000 words or so it's supposed to be in the end!). Since everything on these forums is open to all members, I'll probably post this summary here somewhere for anyone to see after I've submitted my essay.

@Rolly: I was considering a questionnaire actually, you may be in luck Razz

@Kitty of Doom: No, I'm not studying non-mainstream loners, it's a bit controversial to study people if you are one yourself Razz (well I don't think I'm a loner, but from what I've seen at Armageddon cosplayers don't seem to be loners either!)

@u_ne_korn: I actually run the anime club at Victoria, but that's about all I have time for, it's a relatively relaxing two hours a week, hehe.

Re. 13 year olds: I have no problem with younger people, although technically I don't think I'm supposed to interview them without their parents' permission ^_^

Your research sounds extremely interesting, and we're looking forward to the end result! I'm sure everyone will be more than willing to help out.
