These were the SYFY VIECC Championships of Cosplay 2018 presented by FM4!

62 applications - 22 participants - 3 categories - and one show winner!
VIECC Championships of Cosplay

This year we topped our record of applicants in the VIECC Championship of Cosplay! 62 talented cosplayers from 11 different countries applied for our competition this year - 22 of them finally managed to participate in the contest at VIECC!

The cosplayers fought in three categories for the title "Best in Show" to represent the VIECC Vienna Comic Con in the final of the C2E2 Crown Championship of Cosplay in Chicago.

It was a tight competition but at the end of the day there could only be one winner!

Ales Strmiska, also known as Ali cosplay & props, has convinced the jury with his Kel'Thuzad Cosplay, from Blizzard's well-known MOBA Heroes of the Storm!

His cosplay consists mainly out of foam and electronics, which has been the biggest challenge in construction, because his costume owns over 900 LEDs and each drawing their power from batteries hidden in the suit.

Ales loves to participate in big competitions and has already won a few. He also had the honor to work with THQ Nordic since he was the official War Cosplayer of Darksiders 3.

The VIECC Team want to thank all our talented participants and wish our champion all the best in the C2E2 Crown Championship of Cosplay in Chicago!

We expect to open registrations for the Championships of Cosplay 2019 again in June 2019.
