Hello in Manchester

I'm based in Manchester. My friend and his soon-to-be wife are really interested in cosplay but don't know where to get started so I joined this site for two reasons:

1. To help them get into the hobby

2. Most importantly, as my friend's best man, I'm planning his stage night and wondered if there were any cosplay activities, meetups etc. in Manchester in March. I think it's be a great idea to get him at some kind of event for his stag do.

Any help or info etc. would be gratefully received. Thanks

I don't know of any events in Manchester around March yet. Some events haven't released their dates yet so keep an eye open for them.

First I'd ask the type of characters your friends want to cosplay as. This should give you a better idea about what type of event to look for as each event is slightly different, some more anime based, some where its really mixed. And if you wanna cosplay as well, you can then go as a small group.

Check for cosplay groups too. There are always groups looking for members.

Hope this helps a little with your questions.

Thanks, that's very helpful. I don't think he's a huge Anime fan although he knows a bit about it. I think it'd more sci-fi fantasy stuff like Star Wars, Star Trekk, LOTR that kind of thing.

I can only find one group in Manchester and it seems to be a bit rubbish - it's on FB and even the administrator has posted about how bad it is

I think, if it's going to be a good event, we'd be happy to travel. There'd probably be a group of about 8 or 9 of us I guess, maybe more depending on how far (or not) we'd have to travel.

I'll have another trawl through the net but if you or anyone knows of any events around the UK around March time next year, please let me know.
