Registrations open for May MCM London's cosplay competitions

Article by Annette W (Mighty Odango) posted Tuesday 4th April 2017

Registration for the masquerades and cosplay competitions at MCM London Comic Con, held at the end of May, is now open.
This includes the registration for this year's World Cosplay Summit qualifiers; the winning pair will be sent to Japan to represent the UK at the WCS finals. The qualifiers will take place on the Saturday.
There is also a brand new international competition, the International Cosplay League. This will have two qualifiers: a competition for pairs held on Saturday and based around both performance and craftsmanship, and a solely craftsmanship based competition for individual entrants which will be held on the Sunday. The winners of each qualifier will be sent to Madrid at the end of September for the ICL finals.
There will also be the usual masquerades taking place on both days.
More info and link to entry forms here!

We look forward to seeing who will represent the UK for both competitions - good luck, and get crafting!
