Cosplay Monthly Challenge Winner — May

This month’s winner for ‘CMCSunshine’ really took advantage of the Arizona sun!

ThermoCosplay is usually working hard on SFX make up or having fun on Sundays with a cosplay talk show, https://www.costalk-live.com/! They really took advantage of light and shadows to make a super dynamic picture!

With June being Pride Month, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make things colorful! The prompt for June is Color. Share them on Original Glaze using the topic ‘CMCColor’ and maybe you will be next in the newsletter!

Sneakpeek: OG Premium

The team has been hard at work the past few months to bring premium features to the OG platform. Check out some of the features with the premium experience we hope to bring for users that want to take advantage of it.

As an alpha user, we wanted to show a token of our appreciation for supporting us for so long. When OG Premium becomes available, if you choose to subscribe to ‘Pro’ or ‘Founder’ tiers, you will keep the price of that package forever as long as you stay subscribed. That means, as we support more premium features and benefits in the future, your monthly price will always be the same until you cancel!

Are there features on the Pro or Founder tier you are excited about? Let us know!

Platform Updates

Glaze Auto-Scroll has been removed! You may have noticed that when you post multiple pictures on a glaze, it automatically cycles through the pictures once you click on one of them. While the team thought this would be a nice touch to showcase more pictures on viewing, it was ultimately more of a distraction as users wanted to control specifically how long they are viewing each photo. In the latest update, we removed this functionality.

Hover-over tooltips no longer overlap. If you are a desktop user, you’ll notice when you hover over another user’s photo/name or badge, you’ll see a tooltip that pops up. When we first introduced badging, hovering over it would make the user preview tooltip AND badging tooltip appear one on top of the other. This is now fixed so hover away!

Chad the cat is back! If you’ve been on the desktop app or on tablet in the last few months, you’ll notice our mascot Chad hasn’t been around in the navigation menu rolling around. He is back! (for some reason, he took a vacation and didn’t tell anyone).
