Los Angeles, CA | July 2022

Anime Expo is the home of the World Cosplay Summit USA Finals and where we select WCS Team USA. Our selection process is now offset by one year to allow WCS Team USA more time to prepare for the Grand Championship and events in Japan. WCS USA Finals will return to Anime Expo in 2022!
