Taipei Game Show to extend ACG cosplay mania with "TGS Cosplay Competition" at TWTC in Taiwan

As 7-year-old "Taipei International Book Exhibition Cosplay Competition" (in picture) temporarily comes to an end with termination of main showground for TIBE Comic and Animation Hall, there seemed to be no ACG cosplay competition to be held at Taipei World Trade Center.

But the Taipei Computer Association (TCA), organizer of "Taipei Game Show", decided to make a major impact before the Chinese Lunar New Year during the "Taipei Game Show", that is: 'To hold the first-ever "TCG Cosplay Competition".' This message noticed that the mania of ACG cosplay in the TWTC during the Lunar New Year Vacation will be succeeded by the Taipei Game Show (in picture).

The first ACG cosplay competition in the TWTC arena (as TWTC Hall 1, Hall 2, and Hall 3 included) is "Taipei International Book Exhibition Cosplay Competition" in 2007. It is temporarily enclosed as of "Taipei Show Hall 2" (TWTC Hall 2) demolished by its new land owner Nan Shan Life Insurance as Nan Shan planned to rebuild with a new complex building named "Nan Shan Square".

Taipei Game Show will be showcased at the Taipei World Trade Center Exhibition Hall 1 from January 23rd to 27th, registration for the "TGS Cosplay Competition" is opened to the public.
