I'm the same >< don't bother checking for a while, anyways unfortunately I don't have twitter, but they have a page on DA, http://cosplaycymrusouth.deviantart.com/

I remember a few people loving phantom of the opera, but most are into anime stuff I think. A lot of CC are going to Cardiff Film and Comic Con, MCM Expo, ALcon, Kitacon and Cardiff International Comic and Animation Expo (this and next year) so might be worth a message on DA to the admins ^^

Go to a quieter area, and talk or sit around, sometimes do charity events, depends what the meet is like easter meet = mini games like quizes ect.

Usually finishes off at a pub with the over 18's to go have a small drink

Not everyones cup of tea though, as these are younger members there during the day 15+

but the group is good for planning cosplay groups (I'm in a street fighter group for Alcon, and a top cow group for Kita )

ok so costume is not required all the time then since i have only got the one and its not finished atm

They say it is, but casual cosplay is fine - like wig (you can take on and off) and normal clothes. I don't like going out in public areas when there's no con around in cosplay. No one does big cosplays like armour or something that takes forever to put on take off, and there's a lot of homestuck and avengers (casual) cosplays at every meet.

Sometimes it's nice to just turn up so you can find out if you get along/like anyone as there are a lot of members (roughly 100 in the group, but 20ish turn up each meet, so it's good to get to know your local-ish cosplayers)


I've met many people I go to cons with there, and a few really really good cosplayers, but some people who go are ok but not really my cup of tea (mostly the younger ones, as their quite loud) although there's nothing wrong with them, but there's no mutual interests.

Anyways it's up to you if you want to go just to see what it's like, but bare in mind their not showcasing their best cosplays (most of them anyways)


Thats all just my opinion~

Hey Alastair I'm Sasha! I live just outside of Cardiff so not far from you at all, nice to meet you!

Do you have twitter BTW if so please feel free to follow me!

I'm looking to find more Welsh cosplayers/friends with common interests to hang with and go to cons with too and looks like there's a thriving community which I never knew about which is very exciting!

If ever you want to talk just give me a shout!

If someone could give me like 2 weeks notice before the next meet up that'd be epic!
