World Cosplay Summit 2008 Adds Australian Leg
The World Cosplay Summit (WCS) will be adding an Australian segment to the international cosplay competition. Australian anime convention Animania will be hosting the Australian round of qualifying. Animania is a family of three Australian anime conventions, on in Sydney, one in Melbourne and one in Brisbane. The announcement was made at the recently held Animania Sydney, although no futher details were released.
Negotiations to return WCS to North America are currently taking place, however details on the host event are not yet available. WCS last visited North America at Anime Expo in 2005.
Ray’s take: Japan’s going to encode messages in the announcements at these conventions and convince everyone to worship the emperor! Yeah…That’s it. That’s why it left the US 2 years ago. Because we knew. XD
