Cosplayers, listen up! New York Comic Con is hosting the NYCC Eastern Championships of Cosplay this October in the Big Apple, the largest and most prestigious costume contest on the East Coast. It’s the next stop in the “Quest for the Crown” global cosplay competition circuit. I’ve got to be honest…I didn’t realize there was an actual global championship until I started looking into this thing and WOW, this is gonna be HUGE. They’re having stops all over the world–Australia, Indonesia, everywhere! I guess it’s now okay to say that cosplay has blanketed the world.
If you can get to NYCC, you should. But don’t fret if you can’t because fans from all over the world can over watch the Official NYCC Livestream as competitors battle it out for over $5,000 in cash prizes. The Eastern Champion will be automatically qualified for the final round of the 2016 C2E2 Crown Championships of Cosplay in Chicago, the final stop in the Quest for the Crown.
