World Cosplay Champion


It's the first time Japanese team won the World Cosplay Camphionship! 30 Cosplay lovers from 15 countries participated in World Cosplay Championship as a part of World Cosplay Summit held in Nagoya earlier this month. Yuri and Rie from Japan won the title with their samurai warrior costumes from video game series 'Sengoku Basara' and their spectacular sword fight performance, while Spanish team won the runner-up with their 'Candy Candy' costumes.

Teams were given three minutes each to present their costumes and were judged on their expression, creativity, entertainment and faithfulness to the orginal story.
