An anniversary and more event news

Article by Kat B (Delusional) posted Sunday 26th July 2009

Another year has flown by - somehow, we've now been running for 2 years! I just wanted to give a thanks to those involved with Cosplay Island, from the users to the staff who keep things running. (And mainly to Amy-Lou and Sean, who have been pretty much running the site over the last few months!)

Now onto the actual news! The last week has been quite busy - the Grand International Cosplay Ball have announced their dates for this year's event, MCM Expo are launching a new 'Roadshow' event and Ayacon has announced a cosplay guest in their line-up. Read on for more information!

AyaCon Cosplay Update

Article by N J (Tak) posted Tuesday 21st July 2009

Heads up cosplayers - AyaCon cosplay event registrations are officially open!

This year AyaCon will be hosting a variety of cosplay events, panels and workshops. On Saturday evening cosplayers will have the chance to take to the stage of concert venue Butterworth Hall to strut their stuff in a catwalk Masquerade. If acting is more your thing then the Sunday Night Live show is open for skit submissions.

But wait!

We are also asking you to submit photographs of your favourite costumes to be displayed at the convention in our Cosplay Showcase Gallery. You don't have to be attending AyaCon to join in and it isn't a competition, this is just a chance for all our members to show off their hard work and the costumes you are most proud of. See rules below

Now With Less Major Defects

Article by Richard Perrin (PerrinAshcroft) posted Friday 1st May 2009

Recently a bunch of you have been complaining helpfully pointing out that you get a horrible "out of memory" error when trying to upload larger photos. Kat finally nagged me to the point where I caved and tracked it down, and it now seems to be fixed. Sorry for those of you who have been unable to upload photos because of this, and let us know if you're still having any problems.

I'd also like to welcome our new official Cosplay Island news editor Nia Jones (better known as Tak). She'll be trying to keep abreast of all the latest goings on in the UK cosplay scene and posting exciting news articles about them. Just for you guys.

Eventful February

Article by Amy Lou (Amy-Lou) posted Saturday 21st February 2009

Looking at the numbers already signed up we guess you're all aware of AyaCon opening registrations this week. We're certainly looking forward to the return of an old favourite and hope to see you all there.

But no need to sit around waiting for months, there are plenty of events in the meantime and those who travel the length of the country for your cosplay fix can stay closer to home this month with an event to the North, South and inbetween!
