Kia Ora from Whanganui!
Post By Wairua. 05/06/10, 07:22 am

Kia Ora!


My name is Kim and I have been living in Whanganui since December 2008. I have not done any cosplay for quite a time - the last time I cosplayed I was Akane from the manga "Ranma 1/2" in 2002. I'm 27 years old now and my interest in cosplay started about eleven years ago, at that stage it was mainly manga and anime focused... later I wanted to be Xena (and had no idea that it came from NZ but that's a different story).

I am currently trying to find some people here in Whanganui who'd be interested in cosplaying characters from "Legend of the Seeker" with me. I have my eyes on being the Mother Confessor herself as we have the same kind of hair and I just love her outfits! I also have a group for Legend of the Seeker in New Zealand on Facebook to get fans together to get the series back on screen and fight for a third season - I guess that's what got me back into the cosplay community.

I'll go and have a look around the forum now - happy that I found it!

Good morning,

thank you all for the nice welcome! I have to say that I'm a bit surprised that there is a cosplay community in New Zealand, so far I made the experience that people often have no idea what I am talking about.

Though Legend of the Seeker would be my main focus now, I'd also be more than happy to meet anime&manga fans. I have to warn you though: I am from Sailor Moon, Ranma, Inuyasha and Chobits era. chuu~! When I was younger, I was surrounded by two big cosplay groups, both of them trying to perform the Japanese Sailor Moon musicals. They put a lot of effort into their costumes but at that time I would have NEVER EVER dared to wear revealing costumes like that, lol, so I stuck to other stuff.

@Icarus: Do you mean the art school at UCOL? Ill start a two year business diploma at UCOL in July - maybe we could meet one day if you don't mind that I'm a few years older than you.

Have a nice Sunday!
