Tournament's vision

The World's Best Cosplay Performance Championship to be determined in the "The Holy Land of Pop Culture" - Japan !!

Preliminary events are held to determine the top cosplay performance in 42 countries. Every summer the representatives of all over the world gather in Nagoya. It's an event that boasts with its 300,000 members. Japan's "manga", "animation" and "games"  attract young people from all over the world. In addition to the traditional ways of enjoying them like "reading", "seeing" and "playing", there's the newly created way of having fun which is called Cosplay. It's when you turn completely into the characters and act like them". People who enjoy cosplay are called "cosplayers".

 

The World Cosplay Summit began in 2003 in Nagoya Japan to create a new sense of international friendship with cosplayers from all over the world. The center of the event is the World Cosplay Championship, the world's best cosplay performance championship. The representative cosplayers who have won the preliminary rounds held around the world gather in Nagoya and compete for the world's top spot.

The number of participating countries/regions from all over the world has been increasing, with 42 countries/regions involved.

It has grown into an event with 300,000 participants.

※ As of August 2017 Japan is the dream destination for pop culture fans, but Nagoya, where WCS is held, is the "Cosplay Holy Land" in Japan.                                   

 WCS preliminaries held around the world

The Championship isn't judged by the quality of costumes, but also the art direction and overall performance. 

Only two teams and one team in each country / region can advance to the finals in the cosplay holy land "Nagoya, Japan".

t is not uncommon for a cosplayer to spend a long time preparing to go to Japan as a representative.

Let's join the World Cosplay Summit!

Cosplay summit is not just about the championship. You can cosplay in various places, take pictures and have fun.
