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.

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!
