CCCC Dutch Preliminaries



Hello everyone, welcome to Clara Cow's Cosplay Cup, the relaxed international cosplay event at AnimeCon. Even though it's a relaxed event, the prizes you can win are totally awesome!

What we at AnimeCon would like to achieve is that teams of two cosplayers can have a relaxed weekend and then compete in a show that takes a total of four hours out of their day from start to finish. Clara Cow's Cosplay Cup attempts to bring back the fun and bonding between cosplayers of different countries to the international stage. We don’t want to be presumptuous, but we do have a nice prize for the winning team! 

We wish Kenji and Silverman good luck and a wonderful time at the finale next year!
