Cosplay Central Crown Championships 2021 - Supercon Qualifier Registration

The EuroCosplay Championships and the Crown Championships of Cosplay have joined forces to create one global competition: The Cosplay Central Crown Championships!

The global final will now be held at MCM London Comic Con in October 2022 and beyond.

Entrants for the Cosplay Central Crown Championships will be able to choose between recreating a character design and being judged for accuracy or creating their own design based on a recognizable pop culture character and being judged on the design and interpretation of their given starting point. The ability for cosplayers to choose their own competition path embraces the full scope of cosplay creativity. 

Craftsmanship is still at the heart of the championship. All of the entries will have their costume construction closely inspected by our judges, before they take to the stage and show off their creations with incredible costume presentations or scripted performances inspired by their characters.   

Check back here for more details or email cosplay@reedpop.com with questions.
