BREAKING: Mexico wins the World Cosplay Summit 2018. Details:

As I sit here writing this, it’s after midnight, still getting over my heatstroke, and still importing the images from my memory cards. It was at least 39 degrees Celsius (over 100 degrees F) today, which is too hot for any outdoor activities. I struggled with the minor competition outdoors at Oasis 21. Later, thankfully, the main event with the international performances was held in partially air conditioned the Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium. I still don’t think my brain is working as well as it could be.

The international performances were great. However, there was one performance that was head and shoulders above the others. Mexico. They won a bunch of minor awards, and the Grand Prize. It was well deserved the win. Their performance was a recreated battle scene based on the computer game Street Fighter.
