Cosplay comp at Japanese Art Festival Feb 28th
Hey guys, is anyone going to the Japanese Art Festival on Feb 28th and March 1st? It's in Richmond and entry's completely free!

I'm running a cosplay masquerade there on the Sat and a comedy gameshow on the Sun so if you're in London/Surrey/South East area please come along! We have a really great stage and facilities so I hope lots of people will come in cosplay.

More info below, hope to see you there


The Japanese Art Festival is a new festival happening on 28th February and 1st March in Richmond, which combines manga and anime with traditional Japanese culture.

Anime and manga-related events include manga workshops, anime & J-drama screenings, a cosplay masquerade and anime dealers room, as well a plethora of manga artists exhibiting their work.

In addition, there will be numerous cultural activities to take part in, including traditional music and calligraphy, kimono demonstrations and martial arts displays.

Guest speakers include UK artist Sonia Leong, Japanese culture expert Akemi Solloway, and manga experts Helen McCarthy and Paul Gravett.

But best of all, entry to the festival is completely FREE!

The only ticketed event is a J-pop Disco on the Saturday night, organised by J-Pop Go! Tickets are £4 in advance.

There are still some places available for those who wish to participate, either by displaying their artwork or taking part as a volunteer steward. If you would like to be involved, please email

That actually sounds pretty darn awesome XD! I'm currently in Egham, which is about 3 or 4 stops from Richmond...!! YES SOMETHING THAT IS CLOSE. I doubt my wig will arrive in time, but it'll still be fun to check out anything that's happening :3! I'll see if I can convince my other otaku/cosupurei friends to come with me haha~
