News Nausicaä Cosplayers Win Japan WCS Round
posted on 2008-05-20 14:54 EDT
Japanese cosplay duo Hasse, which is composed of Kikiwan and Naoki Shigure, has won the Tokyo preliminary round of the 2008 World Cosplay Summit. Using costumes from Hayao Miyazaki's Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, the two competed against nine other groups for the right to represent Japan at the August 3 international finals. Hasse also won last year's Japan round, when Hasse's costumes were Light and Misa from Death Note, and ultimately placed second in the final competition.
While the other 12 countries competing at the WCS will each contribute only one team, Japan is fielding two, with the second national qualifier set to be held in Osaka on July 13.
Thank you to Kumi Kaoru for the news tip.

If this film causes more permanent damage than most Pokémon outings, that's wholly the fault of its main character, Keldeo.
On the whole, The Battle for Doldrey is a mixed bag of strengths and weaknesses. While that may be true of most things, there are few places where those lines are so clearly drawn as in this film.
While other retellings of Train Man focus on the social misfit trying to win over the beautiful woman, this one tilts the viewpoint so that young female readers can see the social misfit as a love interest as well.
