The ‘World Cosplay Championship’ – held in Nagoya, Japan – has a new world champion: the 2016 winner is the team from Indonesia!
The ‘World Cosplay Summit’ is the world’s largest cosplay event. It’s already acquired official status among cosplay enthusiasts , with 2016 being its 14th consecutive year. With over 30 countries participating in the event, this event is like the Olympic Games for cosplay. This year, India, Switzerland, Canada, and Sweden joined the party, and for a whole week (July 30 – August 7) cosplay fans had the chance to see some of the most elaborate costumes ever created.
The World Cosplay Championship was held during the last day of the Summit. Last year’s winners, Mexico, gave their best to protect their title, but in the end it was Rian Cahyadi and Marchella from the Indonesian team that won the championship. The rest of the finalists were Italy and Brazil.
