Howdy y'all...
Hey. I found this place while randomly searching for cosplay on Google, and it looks like a nice site! I've always wanted to do cosplay (either as Ayame from Fruits Basket or Chun-Li from Street Fighter) but I've never really had an opportunity. I figure that being a member of a site like this might help me find such opportunities, and make me aware of conventions and expos and stuff. I can't travel too far, but living in Kent, London ain't far away (I assume that's where most conventions take place.) So if anyone could direct me to some sort of cosplay calendar or schedule or something... thanks!

So anyway, yeah, that's my intro. All of my real-life friends look at me with frowned brows when I say I want to dress up like Chun-Li (cos I am a bloke and all...) but hopefully I won't get such a reception here. Peace out!

Thanks for the welcome! That MCM Expo looks a bit too close for me to attend... I need to make some money before I can do anything really... but it looks like there are a couple more during the summer holidays.

Hi there!

Cons and events are all over the place.

London is home to the MCM Expo's which are held in May and October. Amecon ( the UK's largest Anime Convention) is in Leicester and Minamicon (the UK's longest running Anime Convention) is in Southampton.

Trains are always a useful thing and people often travel in groups if you wanted to go to them.

Please feel free to ask any questions here on the forums, or come bother the Cosplay Island staff at the Expo's.

~M
