I R FAMUS! (with bonus photobomb by Mangle)

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!
