In this competition we had cosplayers from the countries of The United States, Croatia/Serbia, The United Kingdom, Germany, Russia, Canada, Spain, Iceland, Mexico, Bulgaria, Brazil, and The Netherlands. Each contestant was given a choice to enter either the armor or needlework category, with a beginner section for new cosplayers. The judges then prejudged each contestant and chose the top competitors in each category as finalists for the competition.
The cosplays that were entered spanned a wide variety of characters from different fandoms, including comic books, movies & television, video games, anime, and fantasy. Many cosplayers chose from popular pop culture realms such as Star Wars, Critical Role, Marvel, Disney, Legend of Zelda, and many more.
Congratulations to our winners!
In the beginner category, the judges awarded US cosplayer Little Lottie as the Best Beginner Winner for her Belle from Beauty and the Beast (with inspirations from Outlander).
The Honorable Mention Award went to US cosplayer Nyvedna Productions as Princess Tiana from Princess and the Frog.
