This video has a lot of me in it. For the curious, if you watch this you'll see what I look like and get a sample of my shockingly broad kiwi accent. How will someone whose accent has been described (by South Africans) as 'like a stoned surfer" ever make the precise sounds required for articulate Finnish?

That's a really good question.

Anyway, the video is about cosplay. It follows me through the cosplay competition at Auckland Armageddon last year (which I didn't win), and I really like that it is really about cosplay and only peripherally about me. Have a look, see what you think:



I think he's done a really good job of showcasing NZ cosplay, and we all come across well enough so that I'm not terrified of some horrible internet backlash for sticking my neck out and agreeing to be in this video.

This came through at lunchtime yesterday, and it really did make my day. ;-)

Video also includes hot templar action!

Check out my 10 consecutive words without an um or a swear!

Um, fuck. Now I don't know what to say...

Wow, you come off really well spoken and good at interviews. If it were me, I'd be stammering all over the place! Haha.

Also, you're adorable! :D

I've had a lot of practice at public speaking, and I like nothing better than being asked about something I'm really interested in. ;-)

Also, thanks! ;-) Not many people say that about me, so it means a lot.

You were awesome, and so lovely - I love watching people passionate about what they do :)

( also I just saw my friend dressed up in one of the crowd shots behind you - or at least I think it was her I don't know there would be many Aucklanders in that particular costume so yay!)

I love how many opportunities there are in this vid to go "Oh hey, I know that person!" ;-)

You interview really well! Not that I'm at all surprised by this, but I think it's my first time seeing any kind of recording of you, and you come across as knowlegeable, well-spoken and composed - I'm pretty jealous. (Also, it's been a while since I've heard a Kiwi accent in its native habitat, so that tickled me.)

Thank you!

And "Talk Kiwi To Me" should totally be a pickup line. ;-)

So ... finally watched it!

Love it ... and I like that you're so passionate about it. And - nope, your accent isn't too strong. I understood everything. *lol*

That was excellent. And also I agree with the pro level of public speaking. Well impressed.

I agree with everyone else on the "clean and articulate" (joke), and I also enjoyed this video very much! Congrats :)
