World Cosplay Summit

HYPER JAPAN's carnival of cosplay is almost here - and there’s just a week left to register for the World Cosplay Summit (WCS) and European Cosplay Gathering (ECG) contests - so enter now to be a part of it and maybe even win a trip to Paris or Japan!
Cosplay judges for the Saturday of HYPER JAPAN have also been announced - double World Cosplay Summit champions Mauricio and Mônica Somenzari will join professional prop makers John Bekkensten and Adelaïde Filippe from Bekkhans Studio!

Mauricio And Mônica Somenzari
Hailing from Brazil, Mônica and Mauricio are the only team to have become double WCS Grand Champions – winning first in 2006 with their Angel Sanctuary performance, and again in 2011 as Balthier and Ultima from Final Fantasy XII! Outside of cosplay, Mauricio is a designer for a prestigious Bralizian high fashion brand and Mônica has just graduated from her photography degree. Both cosplayers say they can't wait to visit London - the "Mecca" of fashion - and meet British cosplayers!

BekkHans Studio

Founded by John Bekkensten (Norway) and Bruce Hansing (UK), BekkHans studio have been providing props, concept art and set design for the movie and entertainment industry for the last 13 years. Founder John Bekkensten will be appearing at HYPER JAPAN together with concept artist Adelaïde Filippe.
