Another year of the World Cosplay Summit has come and gone this past weekend and, as expected, the performances and cosplays have gone above and beyond in craftsmanship and theatrical display.
This year’s event brought representatives from 30 countries around the world, with Canada and Sweden making the switch from observers to competitors. India and Switzerland also joined the roster for their first time competing.
Here is a summary of this year’s winners:
1st Place: Team Indonesia, Rian CYD/Frea Mai
2nd Place: Team Denmark, Shinji/TinYasuo
3rd Place: Team France, LucioleS/Lyel (Fenié Sophie)
And a notable mention for Best Costume (Brother Award):
Team Finland, Jesmo/Yumi Koyuki
A huge congratulations to all the teams in their success in making it to the competition and even more praise to all of this year’s winners.
