|Time Taken :||30 mins|
|My rubbish Serah cosplay! |
Bought the white jacket and white t-shirt the day before Expo from New Look. I sewed on 5 buttons to the t-shirt to make it look slightly more passable. The skirt was borrowed from my friend who is a couple of sizes bigger than me so it had to held together with safety pins. I used a sports bandage for her bandage with a little black braclet and long black socks which I already owned. I was going to buy shoes but I couldn't find any the right colour so I just had to go for black converse.
My friend did my hair. She basically just tied it in a sideways ponytail, used her straighteners to curl it slightly and then used hairspray to keep it in place.
As I came down from the hotel, there was a Snow sitting and waiting for me in the reception. It was scary so I ran away. Good times. ;)

London MCM Expo 2011 (Posted 2nd June 2011)
Saturday at the Expo was a lot of fun!
We woke up at about 8.00am to get ready, our hotel was only 5 minutes on the DLR away from Excel so we had plenty of time which was good because my cosplay wasn't really ready in any shape or form!
I went as Serah and my friend went as Ciel from Black Butler, who was very excited to have her photo taken twice! (Though one was a sympathy photo) I didn't have my photo taken at all (cos I sucked :D)
As I came down from the hotel, there was a Snow sitting and waiting for me in the reception. It was scary so I ran away.
I met my friend off the internet for the first time after talking to them for about 4 years, which proved she wasn't imaginary. We also met up with two of our other friends.
After Expo we went to Wagamama's in Leicester Square for dinner. I have chicken ramen, fruit juce and shared a Wasabi chocolate cake (I really hate Japanese food!!!)
We were walking back through Leicester Square and happened to come across a theatre showing Much Ado About nothing...with David Tennant and Catherine Tate in...and we walked past as they were coming out! So we went and attacked them for photos :D
