Side note.

This year at the Auckland Expo I'm looking to have a tattooing stall set up this year with my mate Corey Weir! We will be doing small to medium tattoos for CRAZY low prices and we will be selling all sorts of awesome merch! t-shirts, tattooed leather wall art, tattooed leather bags and possibly even a pimped out coffin! So don't forget to be there! I might even do some give aways/freebies latter in the year so keep yours eyes open!

What is Armageddon?

Armageddon is a science fiction and comics convention held in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Melbourne and Sydney (from 2008). In recent years it has also showcased computer and video gaming, animation, and consumer electronics. The convention attracts celebrity guests from popular TV shows and computer games.

Armageddon was first held in Auckland, New Zealand on the weekend of 2 December 1995 at the Avondale Raceway. In 1997 the convention first came to Wellington, a first Melbourne show was held in 1999, and the first Christchurch event was held in 2007. The event is a mixture of gaming, wrestling, music, anime, sci-fi, fantasy, comics and stalls. Armageddon has become the largest fantasy event in Australia/New Zealand with 28,000 attendees at the last Auckland event. The first Christchurch event was held in April 2007, and the first Melbourne event is planned for 13-14 October 2007 at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre (Jeff's Shed).

Special events that take place at Armageddon include a Dragonball Z kamehameha contest (created in NZ in 2001), Pizza Eating Contest, Pillow Fight, Black Box Session console gaming tournament, Wuss Factor (fear factor style eating contest), AMV and Cosplay, trading card tournaments, movie screenings, and celebrity panels.

Armageddon also hosts a variety of stalls run by stores and companies from all over NZ and Australia, with DVD, gaming, trading card, comic, anime, and sport memorabilia sales. The upcoming October 2007 events in Melbourne and the following weekend in Auckland are planned with a more diverse selection of celebrity guests, events and activities. A new Sydney show is planned for October 2008, with Melbourne in 2008 to be held two weeks later in November.

Random question: do you think attending Armageddon and doing a quick survey on what types of art you would like to see put on shirts/bags/etc. and if you would buy such products is an okay idea or better not do it? Also, would you answer the survey if someone approached you? Would you like the surveyors to be dressed in cosplay or professional looking clothes? Thanks!
