FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
London, England - 10th November 2010
Grand International Cosplay Ball: Arabian Nights
The 3rd annual Grand Cosplay Ball - November 28th, London
On Sunday, 28th November, cosplayers from around Europe are set to converge on London's Clapham Grand for the third annual Grand International Cosplay Ball. Held in a converted Victorian theatre, it is the only event in the world to combine cosplay performances with circus acts and professional performers!
The Grand International Cosplay Ball is one of the few shows in the calendar where hundreds of costumers from many different countries can get together, break out their formal cosplays and socialise, so expect to see Lelouche waltzing with Princess Jasmine, or Mario boogieing with Sailor Moon!
Previous years have seen everything from fire performers and aerial acrobats grace the stage, alongside cosplay performances and live bands. Cosplay guests have included world reknowned cosplayers Yaya Han and Giorgia Vecchini - as well as hundreds of visiting cosplayers from all over the UK, Europe and Asia!
