Cosplay & Convention News

We try to keep our members up to date with the latest cosplay news, event updates and competition announcements, as well as anything of general interest to cosplayers! We also occasionally use this to inform everyone of any major site changes. If you know anything interesting that we haven't mentioned, or are an event or competition organiser with any press releases, please drop an email through to news@cosplayisland.co.uk and we'll spread the word.

Site update: Reference Images

As part of our ongoing site refresh, we've made the decision to stop allowing reference images. In a month's time we'll be deleting all historic reference images, so please take this opportunity save any if you don't have them backed up. We're aware not everyone will support this decision so please read on for our reasoning.
