This is the official thread to discuss the World Cosplay Summit 2015 Canada Preliminaries (to go to Japan 2016) that we will be having at the convention. Please post all questions and general discussion about the WCS here.

Please note that the event directors are are not French-speaking so there will be a small delay in replying to questions asked in French.

Ceci est le fil de discussion officiel du World Cosplay Summit que nous aurons a la convention. Postez toute vos questions et discussion général a propos du World Cosplay Summit ici.

Veuillez noter que les responsables (les directeurs) ne parlent pas le français, donc les réponses aux questions posés en français seront un peu retardées.

Last year's thread for reference.

Yeah! 9 great team :) looking foward to it! I am in one of the team :o and have few question!

1: is it true that by july 10 we need to send a picture of our background that we will use on the stage fully complete and with the mesurement? or it can be in progress?

2: is there anything else to send on july 10 that we don't forget?

3: I am cosplaying a gender different than mind and don't have the prettiest voice. I have a friend that love to do voice acting and have a pretty awesome microphone. Can I ask her and a guy friend to help us with the sound montage and our voice? or it need to be 100% our voice and montage?

4: oh we can tell what are ou cosplay? I heard that it was suppose to be 100% secret to keep the suprise for the competition and so the other team don't see what we are doing since some of the team are friends together :o?

5: before you told us we where chosen I bought my weekend pass and bought the 2 concert ticket. Angela is just before the WCS on friday, is there a way that I can go see her? or I should probably ask for a refund to the concert since we won't have time?

thank you for your anwser!
Posting this here so it can maybe help other team with the same question.

Work in progress photos are fine, but drawings with measurements would be better. We need to have an idea of how big and heavy the stage props are in advance for the ninjas who will be setting up the stage.

A description of what you will be doing on stage and the dimensions of the stage props you will need set up on stage. This is to help us create our running order so we don't put similar presentations back to back.

The voice recording does not have to be you. However, it cannot be the original voice actors from the source anime/game or copyrighted material.

WCS Canada has no rule requiring teams keep their cosplay plans secret. Feel free to share! If you post on social media, please tag
it with #WCScanada so we can find your posts, too.

Since you let us know early about having a ticket to the concert, we will do our best to accommodate your team by having your workmanship judging early and your stage presentation later in the show. Obviously we will not be able to do this for every team.
