Are YOU coming to the MCM October Expo 2010?
Hey there~!! So, any of you out there coming to the MCM anime expo on October here in London, ExCel? Are you also doing a cosplay? Tell us if you're coming and who you're coming as~!

I'm definitely coming and I'm cosplaying as Chrona Makenshi from Soul Eater~! I'm also in the Soul Eater cosplay group, if you want to join, let me know~!

There weren't many Chrona cosplayers (from what I saw) so if you see a Chrona Makenshi at the October expo, it's most likely to be me XD if you wanna know, just ask her 'are you Blue_Clover?' or 'Is your name Kai?' I will then recognize you as one of the cosplayisland guys~. XD

And yeah, if you want to meet up and hang out there with me, that'd be cool! Expos are also a great place for making awesome new friends~! ^__^

See you there~!

I will be there, as will the rest of The Musketeers Heading up Z-Day with another huge Left4Dead shoot!

As well as an epic Nightmare Before Christmas group! (I'm doing Lock )


03 Jun 2010 - 20:2633324
Absolutely! I think I'd be dragged there if I didn't want to go! XD
Not quite sure what I'll be wearing on the Saturday yet as I'd really like to get some input from other cosplayers to see what they'd like to see, but I might be doing Lilymon on the Sunday just for fun!

03 Jun 2010 - 20:5433330

Honestly, the more I've gone to Expo, the more I've disliked it. I think that the guys there have done is great, but the fact that there's no upper limit to the amount of people means that there are often far larger crowds than I enjoy, and this also means that costumes get broken.

The wings I wore as Abel are a good example, I've worn them before and had no issues, wore them to expo, the copper tubing inside them has snapped from all of the people pushing me around.

People are also far ruder I've found, shoving past someone is one thing, but not apologising is far worse in my opinion.

I've been going to Expos since 2005 and have made some fantastic friends from going, but these days I generally have more fun in the hotel than I do inside the actual event.

The cosplay side of things is run well and the people that run it are fantastic, but the rest of it doesn't really appeal to me any more. Once you start going to other conventions where you can watch animé, sing karaoke, play games etc. in proper comfort or where you can sit in the middle of the convention with friends all around you and RELAX...that's what it's all about for me.

And expo...just doesn't have that anymore. You're hard pressed to find somewhere to sit inside the entirety of the ExCel centre these days.

Definitely~
Saturday I'm Hungary from Hetalia and Sunday I'm the Cheshire Cat for our Alice in Wonderland group~ ^-^

I'm going! I was thinking of making this one my last as well, but now I have a friend that's going to go to Uni in London meaning I can stay with her for free. So if it's quite cheap with travel from her dorm to ExCeL then I'll probably carry on going (Maybe not next May though, I want to save up for Japan Expo in Paris xD), if not - then I'll probably stick to conventions now that I'm finally old enough!

But for October, I want to see my friend's dorm and University and check out Eurocosplay so I'm definitely going 8D.
I have too many costumes to pick from! I need to stop saying yes or maybe to groups D8

So far I have to choose from:
Simon (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann)
Rin Kagamine {Synchronicity} (Vocaloid)
Seth Nightroad {Manga} (Trinity Blood)
Haine Otomiya (Gentlemen's Alliance)
Alice (Alice in Wonderland)
Yoh Asakura {Halloween} (Shaman King)

They're all for groups, so if a group doesn't happen then that means less costumes for me. Shaman King, Vocaloid and Gurren Lagann and most likely definites though - because I'm the organizer! XD

I quite understand how you feel, I kind of got the feeling that the expos have become.. I dunno.. Bleak? (yeah, not the word to describe it.. =___=) Rudeness? Well besides those wannabe-cool-guys and 'chavs' that just hang out there and hit on us, I don't really meet rude people. And yes, sometimes I can't even breathe 'cause it's so packed! It was raining on the May Expo and gosh, the whole of the building was crowded! =__=

There's not that much to do either. (I mean, what the event has to offer and such) and I think that the random people there who just make up games and entertainment for everyone to join in is even more fun. XD I dunno, after many expos of roaming around and taking photos with cosplayers.. I guess it's become.. Less exciting, I have to agree.

But it's exciting enough to make me go there every year! XD I guess it just has its pros and cons. ^__^

Still, for what it's worth. I hope to see you there~!

If I DO go I'll be cosplaying:

Galinda Upland - Wicked (not sure which day yet)

then
Remus Lupin - (Marauder era) Harry Potter
or
Rachel Berry - Glee.

Not sure as to who and what day's I'll be cosplaying them yet.
