THE Isle of Wight Community Club in Cowes will provide the setting for an evening of outlandish outfits and performance art.

The Leap Day Cosplay Party takes place on Saturday, with all money raised from tickets going to the Wessex Cancer Trust.

Organiser Roy Spearman said: "We want to create an all encompassing, fun event which raises funds for a fantastic charity.

"Dressing up is optional, but we hope to witness some dazzling costumes on the night.

"We have being wonderfully supported by the local community, for which we are truly grateful."

Among the evening's attractions are a full size Tardis entrance way, Daleks, karaoke, a live DJ and prizes for the best costumes.

Suzie Sparkles will offer glitter tattoos, festival eyes and hair braiding, and live music will be supplied by DJ Timelord.

Tickets for the Leap Day Cosplay Party are available from Heroes in Scarrots Lane, Newport, or from the Leap Day Cosplay Party Facebook page.
