Representing the UK for WCS!

Article by Kat B (Delusional) posted Tuesday 31st July 2012

Late last week our World Cosplay Summit representatives, Lex and Sands, flew out to Japan to meet up with the other participating countries in Nagoya. More than just a performance competition, the guys will be taking part in a range of activities from parades, parties and press conferences, to meeting government officials! You can follow all their adventures on their blog and see what they get up to - the final WCS performance and competition event is this coming Saturday, August 4th. Wishing best of luck to the both of them!

If this inspires you and you want to follow in their footsteps, the selection for next years representatives will be chosen at Hyper Japan Christmas 2012, running 23rd-25th November! You can find information and sign up forms on the cosplay section of Hyper Japan's website and will be able to sign up from September the 1st.
