The eighth EuroCosplay final took place at MCM London Comic Con, sponsored by GLAMGLOW UK, and saw a total of 27 cosplayers competing. But who was crowned the EuroCosplay champion for 2017?

The competition was hosted by MCM Community Manager and cosplay guru, Joe “Granny Gertrude” Black. The esteemed panel of judges consisted of Major Sam Cosplay from Australia, Lisa Lou Who from the US and Diana Tolin of Dial C Costumes from the US.

Before narrowing it down to the top three, each judge picked a personal favourite.

Diana picked Henrik Pilerud from Sweden, cosplaying as Benny from The LEGO Movie.

Major Sam chose Mistvein from Belgium as Capra Demon from Dark Souls.

Lisa decided on Wilkoak from Poland as Los Muertos Sombra from Overwatch.

With all the points added it then came down to the final three.

In third place was Takamy from Latvia, cosplaying Abominable Mei from Overwatch.

Joe concluded the competition saying, “A massive thank you to our judges, a massive thank you to all of our finalists, and of course, a massive congratulations to our special judges picks. Most of all, these are the winners that our criteria have selected, courtesy of our judges. This is the new European champion, and our second and third place for our EuroCosplay Championship Final 2017.”
