Cosplay Finland Tour
Briefly in English
Cosplay Finland Tour, or CFT for short, is a Finnish community of cosplay organizers and photographers. CFT was founded in 2005 to help event organizers with cosplay related programmes, including competitions and shows.
The key parts of our work are as follows.
- Arranging photo and video services, and borrowing related equipment. This includes our mobile cosplay photo studio.
- Assisting cons and other events with cosplay programmes, including competitions, shows and more.
- Organizing World Cosplay Summit events in Finland, including the yearly Finnish preliminaries.
- Promoting cosplay both to cosplayers and the mainstream meadia. A key part of this is maintaining a large, long term photo gallery of cosplay events and other cosplay photos.
CFT's services, including photo studio services and competitions, are always free for all cosplayers. Depending on the type of event and possible entry fees, we may ask the event organizers to take part in our costs. However, CFT operates strictly on a non profit basis. All of our work is voluntary in nature, and none of our staff members are compensated financially for their work.
CFT is managed by Säätöyhteisö B2 ry, a Finnish based registered non profit organization. The majority of our costs are covered by a number of sponsors, listed on the right side of our website.
As our website is targeted for the Finnish audience, all material is in Finnish language. For the benefit of our English speaking visitors, we have compiled a list of useful links relating to CFT and cosplay in Finland.
- CFT's photo studio is a popular sight in many Finnish cons, comics festivals and other events. Photos of our studio setup can be found on the lower part of the studio page.

- All our photos are stored in the Aniki.fi photo archive. This archive also stores many non cosplay related photos from Finnish events. Some copyright restrictions apply. For image usage rights and permissions, please contact us.
