World Cosplay Summit Shows Off Itasha Cars

The World Cosplay Summit, held annually in Nagoya, is a chance for some of the world’s best cosplayers to get together, represent their respective countries and make some great friends along the way. One of the other attractions however are the itasha cars that show up at the event. Itasha is the practice of covering your car in decals with your favourite anime, manga or video game characters. It’s always a head turning experience when you see one in Japan and having them at WCS is no exception.

World Cosplay Summit 2013 Event Trailer

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.
