COSTest sponsored by mercari: Competitive Cosplay Spectacle Returns!


We’re excited to announce that COSTest sponsored by mercari will be returning to the HYPER JAPAN Festival 2018 on the HYPER Live! stage.

While HYPER JAPAN welcomes cosplayers of all experience levels, and our well-known COSParade catwalk show welcomes all-comers, the COSTest celebrates the skills of those cosplayers who go the extra mile to make bespoke costumes that show their love for the characters they portray.

With exciting prizes to be won, it’ll be a spectacle to behold and unforgettable fun for participants.

COSTest sponsored by mercari: Sunday 15th July

Applications close Midnight, Wednesday 4th July 2018.
