UK based Cosplayers should already have the London MCM Expo on 29th and 30th of May marked on their calendar just for the shear number of cosplayers. As if you need another reason, Euro Cosplay 2010 qualifiers will be held at the London MCM Expo on Saturday 29 May, with the Grand final set for the London MCM Expo in October.
Press release as follows:
Euro Cosplay Championships coming to London
If you need proof that cosplay is taking off in the West, look no further than the stunning success enjoyed by the Euro Cosplay Championships in their inaugural year.
18 nations are already taking part in Euro Cosplay 2010 – Austria; Belgium; Czech Republic; Denmark; England; Finland; France; Germany; Hungary; Ireland; Italy; Netherlands; Poland; Portugal; Slovakia; Spain; Sweden and Switzerland – an incredible achievement in its first year, given that Japan's World Cosplay Summit has 15 participating countries.
The UK's own enthusiastic cosplay community will have two great opportunities to check out the best of Euro Cosplay 2010 – the Qualifiers held at the London MCM Expo on Saturday 29 May and the Grand Final to be held at the London MCM Expo later in October. Given the high standard of cosplay we've seen over the years at the London MCM Expo, both competitions look like being events to remember!
