The World Cosplay Summit 2013 competition in Nagoya has just wrapped up moments ago, and the results from the judging panel are out.
This year 20 countries officially participated in the World Cosplay Summit. Each country was represented by a team of two cosers, who had to act out a short cosplay performance on-stage with costumes and voice-overs done all by themselves.
The teams were judged on three criteria: costumes, performance, and the level of faithfulness towards the original work.
Every team put together a stunning performance, and wowed the audiences with their character portrayal skills, the high level of fidelity in their costumes, as well as various stage gimmicks that added showmanship to the whole affair. It was truly a contest of the very best, and everybody walked away a winner.
With that said, however, a few of the teams also managed to walk away with the judges’ hearts, as well as wonderful prizes.
Which teams? Let’s find out, starting with the winners of the special prize awards.
