Which do you prefer?
Ok so i heard about loads of people going to cosplay.com for more people to meet up with etc and stuff but when i signed up i was just overwhelmed by everything. When I'm here it's nice and calm and I can look on the forum and see people's names I recognised from the week before etc but there I think people appear for a second but dissapear. Not saying it's bad or anyhting but I'd rather Cosplayisland because it feels like pople can have a bit more of a voice.

This is probably pointless but which do you prefer? Cosplay.com or Cosplayisland.co.uk?

I have joined cosplay.com, but its too big and doesn't really look at UK conventions. I quite like the fact that Cosplay Island is UK based and primarily for UK cosplayers, but is still welcoming to other nationalities :3

I also found with Cosplay.com that it's more... nasty? I don't know really how to describe it.

I think that there are more people on that site, so there are more disagreements and people who don't really care about others much. Whereas here I've only met one who was a bit of a dick.

I don't know... Cosplay Island is better as it's smaller and kinder. And not as confusing. And you at least get one person who tries to help you.

Cosplay Island, definately. I do have a cosplay.com profile but... I've only been on it twice =/ I found the process of uploading photos really un-nessesarily complicated =/

CosplayIsland by far.

I remember going to cosplay.com when I first started out and being so daunted by the site I just abandoned my account.

On CI everything seems simpler and more like a community.

I prefer Cosplay Island for general use and anything related to UK conventions and events. But I do like that I can upload more photos to cos.com and that I get feedback from various people around the world like I do on DeviantArt. You can find a lot of useful info and tutorials on the forums also due to the large amount of people that use them. I'm a bit cautious about posting in certain sections however due to drama lama.

I actually prefer coscom for the forums - they're really active so there's always something going on! And everyone that I've met there seems lovely and has given me some really helpful advice. A lot of topics get covered in the forums too, from wig dying to cosplaying in public to parents' opinions and so on.

However it does completely fail when it comes to trying to find UK cosplayers - their UK section is really quiet and gets like one new post a day. It's a lot easier to meet people on here, especially as people actually live in the same place and so you can meet at events... you really don't get that at all with coscom. Often I feel like a bit of a lonely Brit there, haha.

I primarily used cos.com to know the ropes of cosplaying. There were tutorials and more help ready and waiting there. However I have found myself gravitating more here for conversation based reasons. I found if I posted in a topic on cos.com, it would usually get ignored and there was a certain bunch of people who knew each other since they practically lived on the forums as far as I could tell. Hence they were having their own little conversation.

As mentioned before, there is the occasional bitching and hairpulling which I just dont see here. People are friendly and I can actually meet up with the people that I become friends with/have a common interest with me, rather than discussing transcontinental conventions that I will never go to

CosplayIsland. All the way.

Cosplay.com is just so stupidly complicated :/ Adding icons, adding pictures, deleting costumes and pictures.. It's so time consuming whereas here is nice, simple and quick~

I have a cos.com but I haven't been on it in so long XD

I always found cosplayisland far more relaxing and user friendly. The whole atmosphere is far nicer and easier on the eye.

When I use cosplayisland I tend to write as in as much detail as possible for each costume I make and update them everytime I work on them. As for cosplay.com my thoughts when I use it it 'meh, dont feel like updating it'. The only time I ever go onto it is for tutorials and researching cosplays I plan to do.

Just been on my account for the first time since I cant even remember and was completely lost in knowing how to use it!

I also have a cosplaylab which I update once in a while. Don't bother with it much as there isnt much of a community and the rules are ridiculously complex.
