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! [..]

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. [..]
