Well it's been nearly three weeks since we all partied until the early hours of the morning down in Southampton and time for a big update on our Minami coverage. We have a floor prize winner, a written report, a video of masquerade and Cosplay Snap have photo galleries. So read the full article if you want to reminisce about the good times, or if you couldn't make find out what you missed on!
Floor Prize Winner
We sponsored the MinamiCon cosplay floor prize and the winner was Kitsu Aria with her original steam punk outfit. It was a great costume that has deservedly won a £30 CosWorx voucher along with a CosplaySnap photoshoot.
Redkun of Cosplay Snap was on hand to run photo shoots and, as you may have already seen, has uploaded a MinamiCon 14 gallery of general images of cosplayers around the convention.
Nert has once again come up with a great written report documenting Minami from a cosplay perspective.
We went along to Minami to bring you the very best coverage of the convention, with Mark and Kelly interviewing cosplayers and recording the masquerade. However due to an unexplainable camera problem most of our footage was sadly lost. So this video is made from the second camera angle we had at the masquerade.
Right now it's just an online version of the video, the download version should be up some time tomorrow.
Well that's Minami over and done with for another year, time to start planning for the next one! Although the con fever may have died down, there's still lots going on here at Cosplay Island - May Expo is just around the corner, we've got a load of updates to release that we've been working on including some new tutorials submitted by members, and keep an eye on the site for the next competition...
