HYPER JAPAN HOSTS WORLD COSPLAY SUMMIT UK SELECTION
Friday 24 – Sunday 26 February 2012
Brompton Hall, Earls Court, London
In 2012, HYPER JAPAN will be hosting not one, but two international cosplay competitions!
In 2012, the UK will enter the World Cosplay Summit for the first time – an international cosplay gathering held annually in Nagoya, Japan. One lucky pair will be whisked off to Japan to represent their country at the summit!
As if that wasn't enough, British cosplayers will also have the chance to enter the European Cosplay Gathering (ECG) – with the grand prize of an all expenses-paid trip to the ECG Grand Final in Paris, France!
The UK selections for both competitions will be held at HYPER JAPAN Spring 2012, taking place from 24-26th February 2012 at Brompton Hall, Earl's Court, London. Registration opens on January 6th.
HYPER JAPAN is the UK's largest J-culture event, boasting a huge range of authentic dealers selling everything from food to fashion. Past HYPER JAPAN events have seen guest appearances by singer and fashion icon Kanon Wakeshima, KERA model Misako Aoki and the seiyuu behind anime series Milky Holmes.
