HOW IT BEGAN

CNZ Wild Adventures accidentally started with a simple idea in 2017 by Rozanne de Wild to help organise a trip just for some of "her kids" in their local cosplay community to Supanova Sydney in 2018.  She opened up the invite to the rest of the New Zealand cosplay community and ended up taking a massive 70 cosplayers, cosplay photographers and exhibitors.

Rozanne de Wild
(deWildCosplay) organises these trips for the Cosplay New Zealand community as a not-for-profit venture to give kiwi cosplayers the opportunity to travel to overseas conventions.

An expected trip cost is worked out and a budgeted amount for what is required to be saved is paid per week into the nominated trip account.  Any savings in excess of the final trip costs are paid back / returned to the cosplayer for their spending money on the trip.

 

At the conclusion of the Sydney 2018 trip Rozanne didn't intend to do further trips but the community kept asking when the next one/ones would be, so here we are, having now taken 32 to Supanova (Melbourne) in April 2019 and 55 to Oz Comic Con (Brisbane) 2019.

 

CNZ Wild Adventures have another group planned for Supanova (Sydney) next June and Dragon Con (Atlanta) in September 2020.  

 

Events & trips are organised by Rozanne and Paul in their evenings and weekends, outside their full time employment.

Rozanne & Paul de Wild are known as 'mum & dad' by many in the local and New Zealand cosplay community and are actively involved in both the local cosplay community in the Bay of Plenty and with national events / conventions.
