Article by Kat B (Delusional) posted Sunday 25th July 2010

Today we're happy to celebrate Cosplay Island's 3rd birthday! After every con we still see a surge in new members and we're really happy to still see a lot of regulars on the site. Many thanks to everyone who helps out with the site (no matter how little or much) and above all thanks to you, our community, for making this place what it is. Lastly a personal thanks to the one who keeps this site running smoothly, constantly full of ideas and without whom we'd definitely have problems. Three cheers for Amy-Lou!

As a mark of 3 years, we've also got some updates for you all (as proof that we haven't forgotten!) including some new cool features such as a watch list, embedded youtube videos, a shopping list tool and searchable photos. Read on for more information, and let us know any feedback in the forum or by contacting me.

Amecon cosplay events - registration open!

Article by Kat B (Delusional) posted Monday 19th July 2010

With less than four weeks to wait, Amecon has opened registration for it’s cosplay and performance events! The traditional cosplay events have returned - the catwalk-style Masquerade on the Saturday evening, the Omake on the Sunday and the Competition. These are your chances to show off your best costumes, indulge in your competitive nature or use your talents to entertain an audience.

This year Amecon also plays hosts to the Eurocosplay 2nd qualifier. The first qualifier was held at May Expo with SephNoir going through as the UK’s first representative - we can’t wait to see who will be the second! (For those entering Eurocosplay, you need to enter the same costume in the Competition and the Masquerade.) Full info for all the events can be found on the links below, as well as extra cosplay events such as the Cosplay Ball.

If you want to take part in any of the events, make sure to sign up as soon as possible to have your places confirmed! So, who has finished their costumes yet..?
