Final countdown for Hyper Japan!0

// February 11, 2012

We hope you are all already prepared for HYPER JAPAN, the exquisite Japan-centered event who takes place in London between February 24 and 26, in which Cosplay Gen is delighted to be a media partner. And if you want to participate in the World Cosplay Summit and European Cosplay Gathering contests, keep in mind you have only one day left to register, so hurry up and book your place in the preliminaries! [..]

In order to celebrate the partnership with our new friends from Crypton Future Media, the Community’s Choice contest in Cosplay Gen #5 will have a special theme: Vocaloid. As the title implies, we will accept in the contest only Vocaloid cosplays, so if you have a good photo of you in Miku, Luka, Gakupo, Kaito or any other Vocaloid, take your chance and submit it! [..]

We are happy to announce the new partnership between Cosplay Gen and Hyper Japan, the UK’s largest J-culture event, with an annual attendance of over 34,000, and boasting a wide selection of authentic Japanese and Japan-inspired exhibitors. From fashion, to food, to film – HYPER JAPAN is a celebration of everything ‘cool’ in modern Japan. [..]


Many of you sent us e-mails to ask about the first issue of Cosplay Gen, to see if it’s going to be reprinted or if there are still some copies left, because, as you have probably noticed by now, the pilot issue of this project is already sold out. The concept behind Cosplay Gen is to make each issue a unique, collectible book-like magazine, therefore we won’t reprint the sold-out issues. Nevertheless, in order to thank you all for the support given throughout these almost two years since the launching of Cosplay Gen, we prepared a Holidays surprise for you! [..]

Best On deviantART This Week0

// December 4, 2011

Dear members and watches of our deviantART group, we’d like to thank you for always submitting. Thanks to that we’ve now learned that the folder limit is 5000 deviations. But don’t worry, we’re making space for you to keep on submitting!


As we previously announced in our Cosplay Mania ’11 post, the folks over at Cosplay Mania held a photography contest which the Cosplay Gen staff got to judge. The decision was pretty a tough one to make, considering there were a lot of great photos among the 20 contestants who submitted their photos, but in the end we managed to select 3 winners out of them! We’re proud to announce that the first place winner will be featured on a two-page spread in Cosplay Gen #05! [..]


We know we have a considerable lag in updating our website and answering the tons of e-mails addressed to us, and we would like to sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. Of course, there is a sane reason for all this, due mainly to a very hectic period, with lots of things happening – we will talk about them in detail in some further posts. [..]
