It’s dangerous to go alone – take this!

Eugene (our illustrious Cosplay Coordinator) has fought and won many battles through his time at Wai-Con.  With his trusted friend at his side, the Cosplay at Wai-Con was full of laughter and glamour.  It was a wonderous sight for everyone to behold; a jewel in Wai-Con’s shimmering crown.

But now, his trusted friend has left to fight his own battles, and Eugene stands there in the dust alone.  His resolve unshaken, Eugene sets out to find a new MC for the Cosplay Competition.

Watch here as Eugene goes on his travels to far off places in search of Wai-Con’s new Cosplay presenter in “Quest for the Wai-Con Emcee!”
