Which ReCon + where?

Try going to the London MCM Expo this October if you can. Only £10 (or £12 if you pay in advance for fast track tickets) - then there's the travel cost and accommodation on top of course, but it's all worthwhile if you can afford it.

It was my first event last October, and there's really nothing to say except GO! And look up on YouTube - London MCM Expo May 2009 trailer (must add the trailer bit there as it comes up at the top of the list then).
All you need to remember is: anime, manga, DVDs, gaming, cosplay, merchandise you wouldn't get in normal stores, one heck of a lot of people, photos, competitions, and celebrities. No offence to the Re-cons but..............they're far too small to even be considered real events to be honest. They're small "meets" for like-minded people who happen to go - I know some people who've been to them before.

Don't worry about getting lost. The only likelihood of getting lost is trying to find your way to ExCel on the London Underground on the other lines that will take you to the DLR line that you need to get there (when considering the MCM Expo anyway). They also have a programme with a map available.

No worries. Just GO!

Shall try to
Just got back from it and it was great
I think it was something like 53 cosplayers.
But yeah, I'd love to go to a big con, but its the costs that would be the pain >.<

The ReCons are great fun :3 The bigger ones are too, but the cost does kill it a bit doesn't it? D8
Best advice I can think of regards money is going with friends to split the cost of a hotel room and what not

Hey I think I saw you at the Re:con tonight, good times!~ I was the Red XIII

I know we're all in differing areas of the country and costs will vary a lot, but being from Norfolk I can get to London Liverpool Street and back for £8 or under each way if I pay well in advance, there's the travel cards in London to consider, which are between £5-8 roughly, and £12 for fast track expo tickets. Sharing a room with friends would be a good idea as well to cover the cost. I don't have to worry about that as NightmareWings lives near Croydon, so I stay with her.

The only other major issue is......the spending.
