Manga Art exhibition in Richmond (August 15-16)

Article by Kat B (Delusional) posted Friday 15th August 2008

Sadly Amecon is over, I hope everyone enjoyed the convention and look forward to seeing all the new costumes being uploaded. Hopefully by now everyone will have returned home, caught up on their lack of sleep/malnutrition and started hunting online for photos!

A little late notice, but for those of you who are London-based - beat the post-con blues by attending another event this weekend. A manga and anime art exhibition is running this weekend in Richmond, promising to be a day of art and culture with the added bonus of cosplay!

One Year On - a personal thanks

Article by Kat B (Delusional) posted Saturday 26th July 2008

Most of you will not have any attachment to this date but for myself it is rather special. On this day last year, the first version of Cosplay Island was launched. At first I was worried that people wouldn't join and that people would just stick to the larger international sites. However a year down the line we've been joined by over 650 members and had nearly 7000 photos uploaded; I guess my worries were unfounded! I just wanted to take this opportunity to say a few 'thank you's.

Japan Expo - A British Invasion

Article by Kat B (Delusional) posted Monday 14th July 2008

Fed up with the UK's idea of summertime, a few of the Cosplay Island team and members set off to attend one of the busiest conventions in Europe - the Japan Expo in Paris. Armed with a video camera and microphone, Nia and Rachel set out to report on what conventions are like the other side of the Channel.

With interviews of international cosplayers (and a few fellow Brits that they bumped into!) and footage of some of the costumes on display, they brought back a small part of the Expo for us all to see.

May London Expo - reports and more

Article by Kat B (Delusional) posted Monday 30th June 2008

Yes we know its a little bit late, but we're getting quicker each time with this! May Expo was a very hectic but fun two days, it amazes us each year how many people they can fit into the hall - I really don't envy the people who were queuing each morning however.

Once again we've got reports in both video and written format to highlight the best parts of the convention. We've also gained a new photographer for the galleries, Nia, who has put a selection of Expo photos up as her first album. For those of you who didn't manage to attend and want to see what all the fuss was about, or if you've already forgotten (well it has been a month) read on!

New tutorials and an addition to the staff list

Article by Kat B (Delusional) posted Thursday 12th June 2008

I realise we may have been a little quiet on the news front recently, somehow also forgetting to put anything up about Expo! We'll have our coverage of the Expo weekend up soon, but before that we have some new content and and introduction to make.

We have two new great tutorials from our members which I hope you guys will find useful - a guide to female to male crossplay and prop creating on a budget. In addition to this we'd like to announce our newest staff member, Amy-Lou who will be helping us to keep this site up and running smoothly for everyone.

Cosplay Island Version 2

Article by Richard Perrin (PerrinAshcroft) posted Wednesday 7th May 2008

As you can clearly see we've just done a massive overhaul of the site's design. If it all looks a bit messed up you might want to refresh your browser. This new design is the product of months of work, and although we've got a lot more in the works we wanted to share what we've done so far.

As you look around the site you should find a whole host of subtle changes and improvements. We hope you like what we've done with the place.
