The Western Championships of Cosplay, the largest and most prestigious cosplay competition on the West Coast, was back again for its fourth year at ECCC. Competitors shared their hard work & months of dedication to their cosplay expertise in Needlework, Armor, and Special FX. We were graced with heroines and monsters from all times and places of the galaxy. Thor, Rufio and Jane Porter all reminded us how magical the Western Championships of Cosplay can be!

Our friends at the Magic Wheelchair stopped by to unveil one of their most amazing creations yet. 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 amazing R2D2 cosplay made specifically for one of our fans!

The ECCC Main Stage was packed to the doors with fans, while many more from around the world tuned in via the ECCC Livestream. 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 Artemis Wild Cosplay (Frost Lich Jaina from Warcraft Hearthstone) as the 2019 Western Championship Winner. We wish them the best of luck representing ECCC at the Cosplay Championships held at C2E2 in 2020!
