There's some unique things going on down South this September that might interest you.

The Akari Lantern Project are looking for a small number of Cosplayers with traditional Japanese costumes to take part in the Thames Festival Night Carnival on 11th September.

Stacking up the competitions!

Article by Amy Lou (Amy-Lou) posted Saturday 13th August 2011

Even if you didn't manage to attend Hyper Japan in London the other week, I doubt you've missed the exciting announcement that from next year, the UK will be taking part in the World Cosplay Summit! The exact dates are yet to be announced but they are looking at around Spring next year - check the WCS thread in the forums for the discussion and excitement going on.

A bit of info we've just had through - any Uncharted fans in the house? Attending the Eurogamer Expo in September? In addition to the main cosplay competition, they've got a competition to give away a Playstation Vita to the best dressed Nathan Drake or Elena Fisher. Held at the end of September, that's more than enough time to get an outfit together! You can find all the details on the Eurogamer website.

Lastly, the final few places for the AyaCon cosplay competition and the Euro Cosplay 2nd UK Qualifier are available, with submissions closing tomorrow! We're looking forward to seeing who will join Xaereal as the 2nd UK representative to battle (not literally, though that could be fun!) with the rest of Europe at the finals in October! Find more info and grab one of the last slots at AyaCon website.
