Cosplay is loads of fun to do, some people love dressing up as their favourite anime/manga/game character just for fun while others elevate it that bit more and do it competitively.
With that in mind, countries across the globe have been holding their own cosplay contests with the end goal being to represent their nation in the upcoming 2013 World Cosplay Summit which is due to take place in Nagoya, Japan during the first week of August. This competition is huge with approximately 20 nations taking part in an even that is a standout on cosplay calendar. The event also has its own mascot which you can see below.
Here’s a trailer advertising the global event. Looks like a great event to be a part of.
