But fortunately there was enough interest/support to take her dream a whole lot further... Over the years the show got bigger and bigger each year, with categories such as Avant-Garde, South Pacific, Man unleashed and the judges personal favourite, Bizarre-bra. In 2000 WOW also became international with people all round the globe attending and entering their costumes! Because the show was getting so big and could no longer fit in the small Nelson theaters, It was announced in 2004 that it would move to Wellington in 2005.
Since WOW has moved to Wellington, the audience has increased by 50% and now more that 35,000 people attend the show each year!
