ReedPop Looks To Make Chicago The Epicenter Of Cosplay Championships

By Carlos M.

At Saturday's Costume Contest at C2E2, ReedPop announced that it was making Chicago the host city for 2016's worldwide Crown Championships of Cosplay, following on from this year's presence.

Winners from 6 worldwide competitions – India, Australia, Shanghai, France, New York, and of course Chicago will go head to head for the crown and for solid prize money.
