Btw, you said you were going to "untie" cosplayers, photographers... in your description. :giggle:
Do they get tied up a lot? :O

How is this going to differ from sites like acparadise.com? The layout is definitely a huge improvement over ACP.

Well one of the biggest qualms of online users, is we use SOOO many sites and repost like crazy. Back in the day there used to be mainly Cosplay.com that people would share everything ACP showcased costumes, but was less community base. It also has neat a great convention map feature- cospix.net/map/?lat=37.7749&am… to help find events to attend, both official events like Anime Expo, Katsucon Anime LA, Sakuracon etc, and fan-created events, like local cosplay gatherings example: NORCAL cosplay picnic gathering.

ACP also did not start as a site to cater to photographers or other people involved in the community at the start, whereas cospix is starting from the ground up taking into consideration all these different people who will be using it and implementing the site to feature better ways to share the work they create.

This site hopes to bridge that gap of posting everywhere and gaining more of a community. FB pages makes everyone individualized, snd people continue to post to many sites to get there information across.

Also the size of images- I can't tell you the frustration of having resized images and having awful grainy results. This site doesn't have those same restrictions that other sites have in place.

There is a whole laundry list of things, so my best suggestion is to check it out :)

Golly, wasn't expecting such a long and detailed explanation. Thank you!

As someone that's not a photographer, nor a cosplayer, I've never really paid much attention to the whole "Community" base outside of certain people working together frequently, but as a fan, I do know that's frustrating to watch someone on dA, like them on facebook, follow their tumblr/twitter/instagram, while also checking their main site, all of that KIND of makes me feel like a creeper, and cosplayers generally don't seem to have the same freedom that illustrators have with social media, posting quick sketches or doodles.

Plus, just gonna say it, you earn points with me for using "laundry list", it's one of my favorite phrases. 

Unfortunately, I'm not able to help back it because I'm saving up money for Christmas presents, and the benefits won't really work for me ^^; But if they need anyone with graphics/print experience, I can help out immensely.
