Article by Kat B (Delusional) posted Thursday 11th December 2008
Well that's it for all the major cosplay events this year, with the Grand International Cosplay Ball rounding off the year quite nicely! That doesn't mean this site will get any quieter however as this news post is about to show. Please read on for news of the big summer convention for next year, announcement of our newest staff member and a mighty handful of new content!
A return event for 2009
If you have been hiding under a rock you may not have heard this news, but after Amecon announced a one-year hiatus from running next years summer diary looked a little bare. So someone stepped up to the challenge - the Ayacon committee returns after what will be a 4 year break to announce that Aya Revolution will be running in August next year. Registrations are not yet open, but please head on over to their website to check out more news and join in the discussions on the forum.
New Forum Editor
We wish to announce and extend a warm welcome to our newest member of staff, Sean, who has taken over from Mark as the Forum Editor. A lot of members will recognise him from the MCM Expo Forums where he did a stellar job moderating, and will have probably seen him walking around conventions in his awesome cosplays.
Sean will be taking a more active role in the forum as we're getting busier and we ask that everyone respects his decisions with forum posts and give him any support needed.
Content updates galore
With winter setting in it's far too cold to venture far from the warmth of the computer (at least not without some dancing involved), so we've gathered some top rate reading material for you!
We have four Event Reports from our man on the scene Nert covering this years Amecon, Video Games Live, October London Expo and Grand International Cosplay Ball. You can look back at the events past for a bit of reminiscing, or use them to get an insight into how the events are if you are thinking of going next time.

For those after tips and tricks Sands has sent us a detailed tutorial giving an insight into how she makes those awesome headdresses of hers.
