World Cosplay Summit 2014 winners
In Nagoya, cosplayers represent 26 countries at the World Cosplay Summit.
Cosplayers work very hard to create their costumes and re-enact the scenes. Lots of different textiles are used to create the look of their favourite character. My favourite winning cosplay was from Team Indonesia. Mostly because I love Armour in cosplay. Most armour is made from worbla. As you can see there is a lot of detail on these costumes. However as these cosplayers are very young it is possible they had family and friends to collaborate with and create these costumes.
