What is Cosplay World

123_1.png

Cosplay World is an event that focuses on the art of cosplaying. The team behind Cosplay World are all frequent attendees of events throughout the year, with interests in various geek-esque areas from games to film, comics to cartoon, but we all have one thing in common- we love cosplay! So we decided to make an event which focuses on all things cosplay, photographer collaboration, skill building, knowledge sharing, and technique mastering!
