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.

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.
