We've got some exciting news about the Grand International Cosplay Ball, which is set for Sunday 30th November at the Clapham Grand, London, England.
This is the first event to our knowledge that is aimed at cosplayers, and not an event like an anime convention with cosplayers as a feature.
The event looks to be a sure fire hit, with live bands, DJs, ballroom dancing, a kimono fashion show, fire and burlesque performances and even an Alice-In-Wonderland themed photography area.
As always with such events we advise that you book soon to avoid disappointment.
Press release as follows:
