So I went to the MCM London on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. And its taken me two weeks to write this little piece. To say it was brilliant is a supreme understatement. The cosplays, the booths, the people it was brilliant. And that is all I can say about a three day weekend.
Ive already uploaded some of the photos to facebook, not the cosplay ones but the photos of people who I was there with. I was planning to edit the rest and upload them but there are quite a few photos so I think I might just upload them as they are o facebook and as I get through editing them add them here. I also realized that I never uploaded last years photos so I should get round to that too.
As for the con itself, Jamie Bamber and Edward James Olmos were there as was a panel with Steven Moffat all of which I missed because the cosplays were too amazing and I let myself get distracted. Plan for next year plan it with times and set alarms on phone! After all the info is listed online but isn’t the easiest to plan out on your phone. Even though I missed a few things, I did have a good wonder down the stalls and saw lots of pretty cute items.
A couple of the guys we were with got their pictures taken and placed in the Adventure Time world. We even got a pic of us being attacked by a zombie at the walking dead stall.
Yes that me with the green ears, I was a bulbsaur, a dodgy bulbasaur but one none the less. I even got recognized by a couple of people and a few asked for a picture with me which I really didn’t expect. Does mean I will be working on my cosplay a fair bit more for next time. I wore the bulbasaur on the Friday, thinking that not many people would be around as this was my first time dressing up. I kinda rushed putting it on so it lacks makeup and hair but it will better next time round!
On the Saturday, I didn’t bother dressing up except for my venom tshirt, which an umbrella operative though was cool.
Then on Sunday, I kinda half arsed it in my Tardis dress. Besides who doesn’t rock a Tardis dress. the dress was put to shame a little when I guy in the coolest tardis suit asked in get a picture with him. He even had a top hat that just looked so sick.
And I met a Dalek! It spoke and glowed! It was just a tad to big to fit in my bag….
And of course I got myself a few goodies. I got the cutest bulbasaur with extended vines! I have named him backlash, he looks like a backlash doesn’t he?
I manage to pick up a few comics, the cutest pair of Umbreon earrings and a Spiderman voodoo keyring that now lives on my camera bag.
Oh there are a few photos in the gallery of the cosplayers, more will be added and a quick warning some of them are quite heavily edited, though I haven’t messed with the actual Cosplays just the backgrounds.
