Team opinions:
(Essay answers guys! Kidding! XD Your answers can be a few words, sentences or a paragraph, whatever you feel is enough to answer the question.)

42) What is SPCC?

Society for the Promotion of Cosplay Culture SPCC aims to promote cosplay in New Zealand by organising events that are safe, creatively stimulating and fun.

Basically, the SPCC was founded by a bunch of awesome people who decided that there would be MORE PROFI--- er, it would be more beneficial if cosplayers were able to belong to a charity-based group. If the Higher-Ups wished it so, cosplayers would be able to have membership perks, and money donated to it could be used for the greater good without the... 'burden' of tax. However, the Higher-Ups were Not Very Nice People, and decreed that they were unable to see why this should be so. Which is annoying, because we're helping people with valuable skills! Like... sewing! And social skills! SPCC is just the embodiment of what the cosplay community is aspiring to.




43) Define Cosplay!

Wikipedia defines cosplay as "A type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea." However this is just a dry, yeastless factuality --cosplay is far more than this.

That is what cosplay is to a lot of people -- a place where those that are less socially adept, the ones that are perhaps the outsiders of the usual social grops can come together and participate in a safe environment, allow them to be themselves, and to meet like-minded people without any fear of being ridiculed. It is simply, a way to add some fun, some spice into one's life, while achieving valuable social skills.

It is also a type of escapism for people who may feel lonely and bored with the normal humdrum of life. Cosplay is the sweet escape from ourselves, where the self is eclipsed by the character of one's choice. When else are we literally allowed to cast aside our inhibitions along with our normal garb and become someone else for a few short hours? As one cosplayer put it "LET YOUR WILD SIDE RAGE".

Cosplay is nothing more than the realization of the deepest and dearest wish for many people, the closest that any of us will ever come to living in the worlds that we yearn after.

Cosplay teaches both dedication and devotion -- who else is going to obsess over the tiniest details and scrimp and save for the money to pay for our art? It will teach us to keep going when we feel fustrated, when we feel that we simply cannot go on anymore. For the moment of blinding and deep joy when one looks at an item that they created, that they have put their heart and soul into is the reward for struggling on through many upsets -- can this not be applied to any situation in life? Can we not take this relevation and simply realise, that what is possible with cosplay is possible in any facet of life?

In today's society it is so very easy to be passive, to let oneself simply soak up information. But to create to see something and to be struck with the need to create, is so much harder... and yet so very much more rewarding. This is something that is precious, and must be nurtured in all of us. While people may scoff at "cosplay" and the fact that it is just "playing make believe for adults", but the dreamers in society, the ones who feel a need to create, to perform, to delight in aesthetic beauty... aren't these the people who will ultimately push humanity foward?

tl;dr - Cosplay = WIN.

45) What is CNZ, to your team?

The internet is a wonderful place, where minority groups can connect, and helps to alleviate the feeling of lonliness that seems to be part of the human condition. On CNZ we are doubly blessed in the fact that we are not just anonymous avatars and screen names. We are a community, where we connect not only through the internet, but also face to face, and build ties of friendship and love between us.

But we also have the advantage that we are not limited to "The cosplayers in Wellington" or "The cosplayers in Auckland". Because of modern technology, CNZ transcends time and space. It allows people in Auckland to connect with people in Invercargil, perhaps to make a lifetime friendship. We are no longer isolated groups, but the cosplayers of New Zealand, together, united.

So what is CNZ? Perhaps it cansimply be described as a home, a place where we can feel safe, secure, happy. A home were a growing family resides, where no matter if you log in at 4:00pm or 4:00am, there will be someone to talk to, someone to laugh with. Logging into CNZ is coming home, no matter where you may be.

tl;dr - CNZ = HOME.
