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.


New event added!

A new event has popped up on our radar, Wyntercon, held in Eastbourne this October. It's the 4th year of the convention running, and it looks like a really interesting event - not only because it's held in a giant string of circus big tops! Check out their website for more info on all the attractions they have planned.

Downtime Monday PM

Hi all, continuing our spring cleaning we've got some downtime for maintenance tomorrow as we tweak a few things around the site. We don't anticipate being down for too long, but once you're up you'll notice the retired features mentioned the other week will be gone, amongst a small clear up across the site. If you encounter any problems using the site after Monday, please PM me or email support@cosplayisland.co.uk with a description of the issue.

Many thanks!
