ECCC Western Championships of Cosplay

ECCC Western Championships of Cosplay

The Western Championships of Cosplay, the largest and most prestigious cosplay competition on the West Coast, was back again for its third year at ECCC. Competitors shared their hard work & months of dedication to their cosplay expertise in Needlework, Armor, and Special FX. We were spoiled with royalty from the edges of Disney and Alien universes alike, sassed by Rocket Raccoon, and left awestruck by a few larger than life cosplays, including a rolling Doof from Mad Max that lit up our stage in the safest way it could.

Our friends at the Magic Wheelchair stopped by to unveil their latest creation.  Magic Wheelchair’s mission is to make cosplay accessible for everyone by creating specific costumes that can be incorporated with a wheelchair.  They revealed an impressive Stranger Things Demogorgon cosplay made specifically for one of our fans, and even created a costume for her adorable dog!

The ECCC Main Stage was packed to the doors with fans, while many more from around the world tuned in via the ECCC Livestream in partnership with SYFY Wire. Competitors battled it out for over $5,000 in cash prizes thanks to Singer, the official Western Championships of Cosplay sponsor. This fun-filled competition celebrated and showcased the spectacle, pageantry, skill and determination of the best cosplayers in the world, crowning Thranduart Cosplay (Lady Tremaine from Cinderella) as the 2018 Western Championship Winner. We wish them the best of luck representing ECCC at the Cosplay Championships held at C2E2 in 2019!
