World Cosplay Summit

World Cosplay Summit (official website)

The World Cosplay Summit (WCS) is an annual cosplay event promoting friendly international exchange through Japanese pop culture. Starting in 2003 with only a handful of countries, it has since grown to include countries from all over the globe.

Otakuthon brought the WCS to Canada in 2014 with its winners participating as an observer nation in 2015. Canada was then promoted to full participating nation status in 2016. The winners of the WCS Canada Competition at Otakuthon 2018 will go on to represent Canadian cosplay and compete against cosplayers from 34 other countries for the chance at the title of Grand Champion of the 2019 WCS Championship in Japan!

More information coming soon.
