On to another day of gamescom! But what’s on today? Be sure not to miss the cosplay village. In hall 10.1, countless cosplayers present their fantastic costumes at the pre-selections for the cosplay of the year award. This competition takes place for the first time this year, and the winners will be chosen in three different categories: anime, fantasy and science fiction. The preliminary decision in the first category starts at 11 a.m., followed by the second category at 2 p.m., with the science fiction category bringing up the rear at 4.30 p.m. We’re looking forward to spectacular presentations and are excited to see who will make it to the finals tomorrow!
