NYCC Eastern Championships of Cosplay

ReedPOP, the world’s leading producer of pop culture events, announces the debut of a new Cosplay championship at this year’s New York Comic Con (NYCC). The inaugural NYCC Eastern Championships of Cosplay will be the biggest and most prestigious costume contest on the East Coast and will serve as the first stop in the “Quest for the Crown,” a new Cosplay competition circuit that celebrates the very best in Cosplay design from all over the world.

Cosplay veterans, former champions and amateurs alike will battle it out for a shot at the NYCC Eastern Championship Crown and over $10,000 in cash and prizes.

The Crown Championships of Cosplay debuted at ReedPOP’s Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo earlier this year, and New York Comic Con represents the kick-off of a larger Quest for the Crown competition that will span multiple events, all leading up to a final again set in ReedPOP’s C2E2.

This new leg of the tournament only makes room for more evolution. After you've seen the best from Chicago, New York and the East Coast, it only makes sense that they honor the best cosplayers in America next. Then, THE WORLD!
