The World Cosplay Summit (WCS) has announced that this year’s Summit will feature both in-person and virtual events. This is surprising for fans who fully expected the World Cosplay Summit to be online only!
2020 State of Affairs
Last year saw the World Cosplay Summit (WCS) move entirely online. The sad news was announced by the WCS Executive Committee in June 2020. Prior to that, the World Cosplay Summit had canceled the regional tournaments. It was the first time that the World Cosplay Summit was canceled since 2003.
When & Where Will WCS 2021 Be?
The in-person events for World Cosplay Summit 2021 will take place on August 7-8 at various locations centered around Oasis 21 in Nagoya. Events will include cosplay with photoshoots and stage events as well as a video cosplay championship.
The WCS Executive Committee includes the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Aichi Prefecture, Nagoya City, Nagoya Convention & Visitors Bureau, Osu Shopping District Alliance, Aichi Television Broadcasting, and WCS.
