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!

Merry Christmas!

Article by Kat B (Delusional) posted Thursday 25th December 2008

For once, a news post that isn't 3 months after the event! I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas on behalf of all the Cosplay Island team.

We hope that you are all enjoying yourselves and are getting into the Christmas spirit (eating, drinking and falling asleep in front of the Queen's speech...) Did anyone receive any interesting cosplay related presents over the festive season?

So drink, eat and be merry! And what are you doing on here anyway - it's Christmas!

New Costume Progress Features

Article by Richard Perrin (PerrinAshcroft) posted Monday 8th September 2008

With AmeCon out of the way we've finally found a bit of time to finish off some new stuff we've been working on for a while. So we're pleased to present four changes to the costume profile pages:

  • To-Do List - You can now track the progress of your costume with a customisable to-do list for each of your costumes.
  • Costume Journals - Keep a journal as you work on your costume, including pictures, to show how it came together.
  • Double Photo Limit - Due to popular demand we've doubled the picture limit per costume up to 12. So you should now have room to include reference images and detailed close-ups.
  • Tagged Gallery Images - While browsing the photographer galleries you can now tag pictures showing your costumes and those images will appear on your costume pages.
