After over three years of playing it www.NexusWar.com is no more! And the universe is a worse place for it.
Still www.wigbl.com exists, heavily inspired by NexusWar. Still in alpha, but looks promising.
First in 2008 Ailsa-chan made me do it! I made a couple of costumes, then I bought a house and learnt renovating a house eats up all your time.
I have been to the following cons (click links for photos):
And plan to do some amounts of cons a year, but probably no more expos, for however long I keep cosplaying which I'm getting back into now the house is nearly 'done'.

So with our five o'clock flight to the North Island we had a morning and an afternoon to do a few things in Christchurch. We started picking up the chocolate things I needed for work - chocolate marshmallow fish and chocolate coated pineapple - and some things for Rachael's brownies too. The last of our gift shopping done we went had a pleasant bimble through the botanic gardens.
From there we went and had a trip up yet another gondola ride, up some 500m above sea level for excellent views of the Banks Peninsula. We also went on unintentionally amusing history ride, before just chilling out and having a bite to eat without much more to do before our flight.
Dropping the car off was odd, especially given it had taken us around two islands and 4213km of roads. I felt like I was missing something no longer having car keys in my pocket. With not a lot to do we ended dropping the car back an hour early with three hours till our flight time only to discover our flight was delayed another ninety minutes.
In Auckland we're once more staying in the Rendevouz, finishing the honeymoon where we started it. Our delayed flight meant we didn't get here till nearly 9pm, so our plans for one final night in Auckland became room service in the hotel instead.
