At AnimeNEXT 2016, we crowned a new Team USA for the World Cosplay Summit in Japan this coming August. We were lucky enough to do a cosplay showcase with the finalists and invited to film the process of choosing Team USA. It was an eye-opening experience to see the process and what exactly goes into choosing Team USA.
