This highly anticipated event is a true celebration of creativity, community, and collaboration, bringing together cosplayers and photographers from all walks of life for a weekend filled with inspiration and networking opportunities.
One of the festival's defining features is its commitment to inclusivity. The event aims to encompass a broad spectrum of experience levels, costuming genres, and photography styles. Attendees are encouraged to break out of their comfort zones, explore uncharted territories, and learn from others. This ethos transforms the Wellington Cosplay Photo Fest into a melting pot of ideas, experiences, and learning opportunities.
Whether you're donning the attire of a beloved Disney princess or embodying the indomitable spirit of a space marine, there's a place for you at the festival. This event isn't just about showcasing the glamorous; it's about embracing the diversity within the cosplay universe and finding beauty in every character and portrayal.

Our very own Madi aka Kittenspike had the opportunity to attend Wellington Cosplay Photo Fest earlier this year and noted "Getting to experience WCPF was one of the most enjoyable and unique experiences of my cosplay life so far. Being welcomed with open arms by our kiwi friends, smashing out shoot after shoot in some gorgeous locations and meeting so many new and amazing people is an experience like no other. If you’re looking for something a little more cosplay and shoot focused than your typical pop culture convention, or are looking to collaborate with a range of different people and learn new things, definitely give WCPF a go!"
Applications for the Wellington Cosplay Photo Fest are currently open, offering a chance for cosplayers and photographers to secure their spots in this grand celebration of creativity. For cosplayers, the event presents a platform to exhibit their craft and connect with fellow enthusiasts, while photographers have the unique opportunity to capture stunning visuals and add their artistic flair to the cosplay realm. But be quick, as applications close September 30th!
