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.


This, I agree here so much, especially after the latest expo.

I'll be going! And I agree with sjbonnar, Expo is starting to get very crowded X__X but it's the only place all of my group can meet up as the cons are too far away for some people so I'll still attend if only to see them

Anyway my planned cosplays for october are:

Saturday: Gardevoir (Pokemon R/S/E)
Sunday: Dee Vasquez (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney)

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.


THIS.

Although I find it hard to say that Expo is "doing it wrong", I would definitely say it's not "doing it right" for cosplayers, because of the nature of the event. I keep wondering why people go (for me it's because it's easy to get to). It doesn't have the stuff a con has, but still gets the cosplayers.

(I also keep wanting to organise a similar event that's catered for cosplayers. But. I don't know if my project management skills will transfer well, and obviously, no funding. Maybe after my cosplay shop gets on track...)


04 Jun 2010 - 09:5133384
HELL YEAH I'M GOING
Hopefully both days since I'm really looking forward to wearing my costume on the Sunday.

Saturday: Psychic Paine from Final Fantasy X-2

Sunday: Saya Otinashi from Blood+. Blood covered but probably without the sword.

I definately want to go, not sure on costumes though. Want to see how my Dark Side Leia turns out at LFCC, then will probably do that one day, possibly Domino again on the other day, or a Lady Deadpool, or something totally different. Undecided :s I don't think Harley Quinn will be returning, at the end of the day I'm not too happy with how the costume came out

I am hoping that October is the first London expo I make but after hearing bad things about it... it makes me sad =(

I have no actual ideas for October yet but am hoping that Amecon will spark up some imagination for me xD

Your first expo? You have to come~! The bad things we said is because we go there almost every year! If it's your first, it'll definitely be extra awesome~ ^__^ Huh, I've never been to Amecon before~ Must be great, I guess. XD

Hahaha is that an order!! *reports for duty* I really hope I can go cos alot of people who cant make Amecon are going to Expo and I havent seen them since Kita in March =( I miss then lotsly!!


04 Jun 2010 - 13:0833399
I'll be there. It's pretty much the big local event for me and getting holiday from work for much else is almost impossible.

Things get a bit hectic in there now. Although it is pretty fun. I just wish the stage management was better.

Cosplay wise, I'm not sure yet. I don't know right now if I'll b able to get my Yuri Lowell for Ame yet.

Usually people go to things like Expo first and then start going to Cons and realise what they were missing...not the other way around LMAO

Amecon = Best convention in the UK. Kitacon cosely follows that I think although Ayacon is definitely in there somewhere.

Can I just say I wasn't expecting so many people to agree with me ^_^' I thought I was going to be flamed for what I had said LOL

Well you have my thanks. I'm not going to be going to many cosplay events as I start travelling next year, but because of what you guys have all said I guess I might just have to do the expo and a con or 2 before I leave.

Felt like Bambi when first reading all this though, but since she's been reassured that it'll be alright I'll trust the voice of experience.

The stage management being better would be like superman coming to rescue me. XD It's yeah, pretty hectic and all, but I need a bit of fun time away from exams and stuff once in a while. x3

Anyway, hope to see you there~! ^__^

I should be going and will be cosplaying for the first time

If i decided to go both days ill be Pikachu on one day and the merchant from resi 4 on the other. If I only go for one day then im not sure what i'll go as, maybe a pika-merchant?

On a side note how much stuff is there at the expo if you go to both days? I went to one day of last weekends expo and felt i saw everything there (bar a couple of games I wanted to play)
