Help reward our WCS Australia teams

Support WCS Australia!
Help us support our best Aussie cosplayers to get to Japan!

WCS is a non-profit organization run by volunteers to help get our best Aussie cosplayers to Japan for the World Cosplay Summit 2019 and 2020.

To put on the best possible show, to improve the prizes we can award our cosplayers and to support our team in Japan, we need your help!

The money raised will go to the cosplayers entering the preliminaries, and to ensure our Australian teams have the best possible support for their journey to Japan. None of the organisers get a cent, we are volunteer based. So all of the money is for the running of WCS Australia and the artists.

create trophies & medals that are high-quality & really make the experience memorable our entrants.
extra funds raised as prizes for these teams
Rainy day funds in order to keep the organisation running.

It is hard for a cosplayer to spend 8 months of their life to create a world-stage worthy costume, but imagine what it is like to not get awarded for that effort. These artists have really worked against the odds to get to the preliminaries of SMASH alone to compete and deserve great prizes.

Now imagine what it will be like for these cosplayers to see their work  performed as part of the largest cosplay cultural celebrations in the world, in front of millions of international watchers everywhere. To prove Aussies are the best at Cosplay.

We are dedicated to give Aussie cosplayers an unimaginable opportunity and change their lives forever. Come join us in this project.

WHAT IS WCS Australia?

We’re non-profit, with a small team of volunteers and we organise the only cosplay competition that directly allows entrants into the Official World Cosplay Summit Japan.

But we want to keep improving the experience for all our teams every year.

The team that wins our competition we send to Japan with one WCS Australia organiser (who travels at their own expense as a supporting role) to compete against +40 other countries in the biggest cosplay competition in the world; The World Cosplay Summit , held in Tokyo/Nagoya, Japan during their summer season.

WCS Australia is an amazing resource for Australia. One of the Australia’s longest running competitions, and there is still so much potential in Aussie cosplayers.

Every dollar will go to towards promoting cosplay in Australia.

Help us send our teams to Japan!

Help us make the world know that Aussie cosplayers are the best in the world.

Currently the teams are expected to bring a minimum of 6x self-made costumes to the events to help with press, parade, stage events held in Japan. This currently is all done at their own expense. It is 10-days of events on average that the organiser will look after their health & schedule needs whilst overseas. Whilst the event itself is one-of-a-kind, it can be very expensive for the team to provide so many costumes and dedicate their free time to the competition when representing Australia.
