I like my olde time lj for text stuff 😉
Please note my last post was mostly to illustrate that what I get out of doing things like Armageddon are not about personal glory or kudos. I did costuming long before I knew about conventions, and even when I found out there was one in NZ. In fact the contest is what got to me to Armageddon in the first place. I probably still have my multitude of emails to Bill asking if it was okay for Galadriel costume to be entered into the cosplay contest and if it really really was okay and if he was sure it was okay?
Anyway, the real point was: it is a testament to how much the cosplay community rocks in NZ that it keeps me coming back.
