Anonymous: Hello. I've just got a couple of questions about Auckland Armageddon 'cause I'm thinking of going for the first time this year but I'm a bit unsure. If you've got time to answer That'd be really great. One, how big and exciting is it compared to Wellington Armageddon? two, is it worth going at all? Flying there will be so expensive and it'll eat up nearly all of my cosplay savings for this year. Thank you very much :) sorry I'm too shy to ask off anon

Hi sweetie! Im happy to answer you. Auckland armageddon is AWESOME. Bigger venue, more people and cosplayers, more stalls and heaps of gaming set ups! Its honesty better, more exciting and bigger than wellygeddon. Its definitely worth going to. Myself and my partner are going but didnt want to spend much, so we got bus tickets for $35 return from welly to auck each and are staying with family. If you are worried about money, try to cut costs somewhere, or try to make sales if you can. I do believe if you go, youll have a wonderful time! And np on the anon thing

Anonymous: you get what you pay for i guess.... 60 dollars is pretty cheap for so much cloth.

If you think that you don’t know a lot about taobao then. This costume is $60 on Sale, it’s almost $100 normally. On taobao most costumes are $20-$30, this particular costume usually goes for the price I paid for. I could literally get 3 costumes for the price I paid for the dress.

I bought a sandplay luka cosplay from this shop because the shop has a great rating and the pictures looked really legit. However my agent just recieved this - pic above. Let me point out the issues:
1. Gold details are different. This is okay because they’re more accurate to the design but…
2. One is bigger than the other!
3. One side has more gems than the other
4. The black detail is off center and on a slant
5. The over skirt gathered is uneven
6. It doesn’t even have the black underskirt
7. It has what looks like strings of hot glue EVERYWHERE 
I’m so done rn, I wasted $60 on this mess. I think it wouldn’t bother me as much if I wasn’t a qualified seamstress…
Big gigantic taobao order sobbb. All stuf I’ve bought over the past 6 months - I could never afford to buy this all at once! I have a couple of pairs of taobao shoes to get, and kind of want to get some more cosplays, maybe. The Sonia and Luka cosplays are going to be for next year when I’m a poor student. Going to start saving for shipping shortly I guess! Let me know if you want links! 
My current primary device at the moment is an iPad, which is basically to me a glorified wed browser, so it took me a while to get together a plans image for Auckland Armageddon. These are the four costumes I am bringing up for the event.
Friday: Mika - Durarara!!Saturday: Alice - Alice madness returnsSunday: Sakura - Cardcaptor SakuraMonday(comp): Meruru - Atelier Meruru
I am really happy with what I have picked out for this con. I wanted to cosplay from Durarara again - Originally I did Anri. I’ve always wanted to cosplay one of Alice’s outfits - I’m saving her royal card for next year, Sakura is obviously just nostalgia for daaays and Atelier Meruru is one of my favourite games!
