Hello from Afar!
Post By Nikopol. 04/06/10, 10:01 am

Hello World, or something :V.

Stumbled along this place through journeys unknown, or something!

I'm a New Zealander by passport holder... but i don't really live there right now! Right now i'm living in Canada and i do a fair bit of Cosplay here and there, mostly game based outfits, but i've done the odd anime cosplay here and there, and will probably continue to do when i get back NZ-side.


Right now i mostly attend the conventions up here such as Anime North, Otakuthon and a few other smaller gatherings with a group of friends. In fact the larger one of the lot; Anime North just finished a few days ago, where i went as Theodore from the new Persona 3 Portable with my Girlfriend/Friends. Bonus Picture of me on the Left

I abhore fabric but i deal with it >: ! But not without lots of help from more skilled people. I mainly love making props out of wood, foam and other stuff. Easily more fun than fabric, sorry seamstresses :p.


Anyways, pretty keen to get to know a few of you when i come back and get into the scene back there, cya!

Still, that's way better than a 3 hour drive (or whatever it is) to the NZ ones.
Half of ours is fake snow anyway.
Been snowboarding/skiing heaps while over there?

Of course! Go up to Quebec a fair amount for the skiing. The fields are
massive, and so perfect. I especially love the little chalet villages
they have - https://2img.net/h/oi45.tinypic.com/xe4nrl.jpg . Double cool because
everything is in french Hello from Afar! Icon_biggrin.

Nothing wrong that.. I think :p

Probably end of this year, but i will only be back for about a year, i come back quite often anyways and haven't been to an Armageddon in years. Wouldn't mind timing a trip to come back then.

Chur chur! The wig is a bit off, had to use one from one of my girlfriends cosplays because the one i ordered wasn't styleable at all! So i had to ditch it sadly. But all in all it was received well enough (except for most people not knowing who the character was yet :p)

Cosplay on the East Coast of North America is pretty healthy, the attendance for Anime North this year was around 20 thousand people over 3 days, and about 60% of those were in cosplay at the very least. As well as another event coming up [Fanexpo] in August, so if she's interested it is definitely worth a look, although its not 100% anime, but its dominated by Anime Cosplayers.




Persona is really fun to cosplay, i am just waiting my mate to get our photoshoot stuff back from it to see how it looked without random onlookers taking pictures and then tagging me in Facebook :p.

Cheers for the welcomes!

Yes North American cons are pretty great :p. So many of them, and the amount of people is surreal. Lots of photo opportunities as well as due to the sheer amount of people in cosplay there are some really amazing pieces.

Persona is good fun to cosplay. There were a lot of cosplayers this year
at Anime North for Persona 3, around 20 people or so met up for the usual shoot, as well as a lot more just wandering. Funnily enough only 1 for Persona 4 turned up, a lone Yosuke D:.
