The ruleset for this year’s World Cosplay Summit 2019 SA Regional Qualifier is now available! This ruleset provides everything you need to know about submitting your application to be part of the biggest global cosplay event, as well as a template Construction Report file you’ll need to show the judges just how you made your awesome costumes. And now there are more ways to win!

Due to high standard of the competitors at the World Cosplay Summit Championship event, we want to give South African teams as much time as possible to bring out their best when taking on the world. For the 2019 event, we will be declaring TWO (2) WCS Representative winning teams!

The team placing first at this year’s event will have the choice of representing South Africa at either the 2019 or 2020 World Cosplay Summit Championship event, with the team placing second being allocated the remaining spot. Going forward, we will be choosing teams just over a year in advance (ICON 2020 will choose the 2021 winner, etc.), giving the teams over 12 months of preparation time (and time to save for an extended holiday!).
