Different cosplay teams from different nationalities will be given the opportunity to experience Japan like no other and also to bring pride to their home country as the World Cosplay Summit 2018 will happen on July 28 to August in Nagoya, Japan!
Cosplay competitions held in various countries were organized in order to give cosplay teams a chance to compete and represent for the grand finals. While the World Cosplay Summit’s main highlight is the cosplay competition itself, the selected representatives will be taken around key locations in Japan to experience the country’s vibrant culture.
The official website of the World Cosplay Summit recently released a trailer video which you can watch below:
Last year, Team China composed of Xue Yan Xue and Tian Tian won the World Cosplay Championship with their jaw dropping and impressive cosplay skit performance of Blood: The Last Vampire. Tien Tien cosplayed as Saya while Xue Yan Xue cosplayed a chiropteran monster.
