At the end of November many a cosplayer's eyes turned on London and Hyper Japan Christmas 2012, the host of the World Cosplay Summit (WCS) and European Cosplay Gathering (ECG) 2013 UK qualifiers.
---Saturday 24 November
I was supposed to be competing with a friend in the WCS and ECG team competitions but unfortunately we had to pull out at the last minute. As I'd finished my costume I wore it anyway and went along anyway to support my friends.
WCS: My ECG team UK 2012 colleague, Yuka (
) and her friend Heather will be travelling in style to Nagoya to represent the UK at WCS 2013. They won with their super cute cosplay sof Eiko and Vivi from Final Fantasy IX[link]
ECG: Lettie (ECG team UK 2011) and Clood will be zipping off to Paris as the UK team representatives for ECG 2013. They pulled off an impressive performance as Frodo and the Witch King from Lord of the Rings.[link]
I wish them all a fabulous time in Japan and Paris.

I was lucky enough to be invited to judge the ECG UK Solo qualifier 2013. They introduced the judges by showing a slide show of our cosplays which was really cool!
And the winner was... Sketch McDraw with his cosplay of Kuma from Afro Samurai. [link]
