Posted in: Anime News

Anime Expo was hyped as the winner of the USA qualifiers for the World Cosplay Summit has been announced. In a tweet posted by the official World Cosplay Summit Twitter page on Sunday, Jewel Cat Cosplay (Julie Ziolkowski) together with her partner Christy Plasil-Tang were announced as the country’s representative for the World Cosplay Summit grand finals which will be held at Nagoya, Japan. Both of them cosplayed characters Beatrice and Battler Ushiromiya from the franchise Umineko No Naka Koro Ni.

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.

If you want to check out their performance, watch the video below:

Team Mexico bagged the second place in their nostalgic Trigun skit. Team Japan won Third Place on their creative cosplay skit performance from ayakashi bakeneko.

We can’t wait for this year’s WCS. Best of luck to all the participants!
