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: Images

A very quick site update for tonight, tidying up some of the mobile site & changing how we display images across the site. But one thing a few of you might like, is that in order to make everything line up nicely on your costume pages, we've upped the max image limit to 15. Enjoy!
