The Anime Expo Masquerade has been a longstanding tradition, running for over 25 years. Every year, cosplayers bring the best in performance and craft to entertain the audience and impress our incredible cosplay judges.
The World Cosplay Summit USA Finals is a cosplay craftsmanship and performance competition where WCS Team USA is selected to represent the United States at the WCS Championship in Japan. Since making its home at Anime Expo in 2017, the World Cosplay Summit USA Finals has shared the stage with the AX Masquerade, making our Main Events stage shine with some of the best cosplayers in the country.
