I think I've already told you about this, but me and my friends are going as a Psychic YRP dressphere. The only thing is, I think we're all doing it on the Saturday not the Sunday :/


Well I'm hopefully trying to swap our groups around, since it sounds like there's going to be more FFX2 people on the Saturday. If I can't swap the groups, we'll at least be there for the photoshoot on Saturday as Baralai and co, so if you guys go to that or we manage to find each other, we neeeed pics! 8D

Ahh, I would change my costumes around to the Sunday, but due to the painting of half my body on Sunday, it cuts off changing through the day. But I really want to meet you guys <3 I'll find you even if it kills me. Though hopefully, if not before, we'll meet at the photoshoot. It'll be pretty obvious who we each are then and I shall demand photos!

I'll be going but like sjbonnar it'll be my last Expo for the same reasons he stated cause after May it made me feel the same.

My cosplays will be Esther Blanchett and a revamped version of my Steampunk character Magnolia Featherstone


20 Jun 2010 - 23:3634835
I'll be going~

I know, within our group, I'll be either Joker or Pluto, from Kuroshitsuji, but still have no idea what we're doing on the other day / days.

We're thinking of doing Final Fantasy X, but the amount of money that'd go into that would just be painful. Especially since some of us, in the group, are going to Alcon.

Quote sjbonnar:
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.


Thats the prob with it being a collectors fair and not a convention (people often confuse Expo as being a convention). There is never going to be an upper number limit on peeps. Which is great for the dealers, traders and companies and of course the Expo itself but not so good for peeps who don't like crowds.

Not that crowed events can be all bad. Sometimes I find that there is always something happening and you get to see lots of different outfits.

Personally I prefer conventions due to the smaller numbers as I persoanlly hate crowds. I agree that I do find people ruder at Expos. The first time I wore Sephiroth at Amecon '08. People asked me for hugs. At Oct Expo '08 people just tackled hugs with no permission. One guy even did it from behind. Not only is this rude but it is also classed as assult. The idoit was lucky that I didn't smack him in the face. Or had him arrested.

I agree that the costume side of things is very well organised and I love seeing the costumes.

I only really go to socialise. I was luckly that last Oct they had guests that I actually wanted to see. But more often than not there is no one of interest to me.

If it wasn't for the fact that I go to see friends who I don't get to see normally because I live too far away I probarly wouldn't go. I do find the hotel costs too much and would rather go to a con.

Next year might be the last one for Expos for me. I'll have to see. It all depends on how easierly I get to see peeps. Or I might reduce to just one a year.

I'll be Going. Although its not important for me cosplay-wise! As i am putting all m money, time and resources in to my next big costume. As well as wanting to actually enjoy it for the stuff that is there,being able to walk around without crying in pain! And actually getting to see everyone i want to see!!

So I'll be going as an Ecchi Maid! I wanna carry round a picnic basket full of cookies and candy, for cosplayers who look like the need a treat/are in pain/have an AWESOME costume! lol. I'll be there for a sugar rush for anyone who needs it!!!

As far the expo going downhill... i kinda do have to agree... but its hard for me.. living a distance away, and not being able to get time off work, makes it hard for some people to get to all the cons that happen year round. And sadly if you wanna see most people and costumes. And showcase a cosplay... then expo is the one you have to go to.

This October's Expo will be three days long (Friday = press & advance entry or something) and with one additional hall. Hopefully that means the crowding situation will improve!

But the type of crowds will probably still be the same though. Unlike a con, Expo goers often have no idea about how to behave around cosplayers...

Still, I have hopes for the upcoming Expo. Who knows, with the changes things might improve dramatically!


21 Jun 2010 - 13:4234854

I will be going but tbh its mainly for the dofus meet I find that a lot of the other stuff is very repetitive and its more fun hanging outside the hotel. But as long as my friends keep going so will I.

I shall be there as usual. Not bothering with this Friday malarky though, I just travel to and from home Sat and Sun.

Planned cosplays for the mo (subject to change naturally):

Sat~ Selphie Tilmitt (Balamb Garden uniform)- Final Fantasy VIII
Sun~ Hermione Granger- Harry Potter

Expo is starting to be slightly less exciting for me also, I now just see it as a filler event between cons as it's not very expensive for me as I don't need a hotel or anything.

Going with EmilyMai22 for the Friday-Sunday-ness ^ ^

Friday: Sasuke Uchiha (genin)
then it's gonna be Sasuke Uchiha (Shipuuden vers) one day and then Lelouch Lamperouge (Code Geass) and a midday-switch into Gaara (shippuuden) but I'm still deciding between the two.

Should hopefully be going to the Saturday night party.. so Zero (Vampire Knight) may be making an appearance there.
Plans may/probably will change somehow

16 Jul 2010 - 16:4636433
id like to go to see what its all about, but kinda put off when someone told me it was a "glorified market". not sure if id have to pay for a hotel yet as i have friends in london. but i wouldnt wanna fork out a bunch of money to be shoved around, wacked with a yaoi paddle, or glomped (ive heard some horror stories).
