What a day!

Yes, the venue was a bit small, they seemed to underestimate how many would turn up! We arrived about 10:40, queued till 11:15 and let in.

Noface costume was a big success, never had so many hugs or pictures taken! It was very, very warm, but walked round once without it and felt something was missing. Chihiro was popular too, and Kiki / jiji enjoyed the costumes and people were really friendly to them (aged 9 and 7).

In fact, the people made it. Everyone was really nice, and the variety and hard work gone into the costumes was amazing. The masquerade certainly had variety, I will never think of Navi in the same way again!!

Here is to the next one, we're already discussing ideas!

Compared to London, yeah, it was kinda compact. Was a little awkward to bypass people without worrying about damaging your own or their cosplay, which sucked a bit.

I enjoyed myself, I was the kinda goth/punk looking Kaito with the Magnet headphones...or if you want, that guy with the messy blue hair, the black clothes and the headset. I was feeling awful physically, had no sleep and was feeling proper ill so if I looked miserable/antisocial then I'm sorry D:

Goods wise, it was alright. I found that stuff dwindled particularly quickly, although that was through no fault of Expo itself. Got a few DVDs and mangas so I was pleased. I would like to see more at Manchester, although with a slight overhaul to allow more space. Maybe taking one or two stalls out.

Didn't visit any of the guests but not a bad selection for the first Expo there, particularly seeing Warwick Davis and Kenny Baker in person was pretty cool. Um...can't think of anything else so yeah, roll on October now!

Future cons and cosplays:
-Derby J-Culture Con: Arthur Kirkland
-London MCM Expo: Kaito (Magnet) and maybe Kaito (Matryoshka)

As a vendor I was REALLY pleased with this expo. Much more of a turn-out and some really good cosplays dotted around. A vast majority of the people also had time to shop and browse rather than being shuffled along with the crowd like in London!

All in all, a really good day

Oh my god... like... oh my god! That was my first expo (not convention) and it was amazing. I feel sorry for the girl that got hurt, i think it was about 5'0'clock or something, i hope she's ok if she's on here.

If anyone got any pictured of a Link with a small shield please let me know.

Basically i think some girl tripped or something and hit her head, had to have paramedics come, feel really sorry for her because it would have made her day bad

I had a lot of fun Shame the venue was a little on the small side and it got so hot inside. There were some lovely cosplays around too, I really liked the disney cosplayers that were on in the masquerade

30 Jul 2011 - 22:5364787
Ah I missed the Disney groups masquerade!

As for the girl, some baffoon decided to pick her up and dropped her on the floor, she hit her head and is recovering from headaches and a nasty lump. I can't help but feel common decency is amiss here...anyway, she should get better soon, those with her keeping an eye.

The venue is big enough but i don't think they handled space very well, trying to cramp so many stalls in one area etc. Very good though

Ay, that crowded room certainly was uncomfortable at times.

Why must it be over?!

That was so much fun! (except for waiting outside in the baking sun for the masquerade until we went on stage!) Still, they gave us free sweets and water, plus they thought being outside would help us as they thought it would be cooler - it was nice to know that the organisers were concerned for us. And I chatted to the really nice people next to me in the line, so all was good in the end! (I was the Rinoa Heartilly with a Blaster Edge who wasn't in a group). If anyone has pictures or video footage of the masquerade, please tell me! My sister's camera decided to wipe all her footage of it by itself.

I tones of fun.
I was Taiga from Toradora, I didnt get any photos taken of any people but my friend did, i mostly got videos of just pretty much nothing but me and my friend playing Bogies haha. I have to agree with everyone the inside was a little too small as it was crowded as hell with that many people that turned up, wow.. thank god i got in a little earlier, that queue was massive and went on for ageeees! D:

I'm glad everyone had fun too! Was such a beautiful day too! Very hot D:

I believe its called Dokidoki. Its on the 13th November.

I had a great time at Manchester Expo. It did feel a bit weird being a dealer this time. I did miss doing cosplay. I had a great time and it was great to see so many friendly faces.

Did find it odd that only half the hall was used as the hall itself is much bigger.

Everyone that I did speak to said they had a great time.

Thanks to everyone who did come and check out my stall. Great seeing you all.

I hope there is another one next year.

I was there as Ray from Beyblade, It was nice meeting so many new people, I only took a few pictures but not many at all since it wasn't my camera ^^; heh

31 Jul 2011 - 16:5364828
I ended up changing my mind about what cosplay I was going to wear haha.
I went into the hall briefly before quickly making an exit. I ended up sitting outside in the shade all day before running inside just before the hall closed ;D
It's safe to say that I had a smashing time (:
... And that I'm terrible at DDR oTL (in heels)

I was Super Sailor Uranus
I hardly got asked for photos which didn't bother me because I just loved being in that cosplay

31 Jul 2011 - 17:0164829
I had a fantastic day! Im really happy with how it all went, apart from the dealers room bein a little small. I generally didnt want to in there because I didnt wanna wreck my shoes but meh. I still had a brilliant day! Best day of my life!

31 Jul 2011 - 17:4164834

I had such a fun time, and everyone was really nice about me and the rest of the disney group ^^

The Kingdom dance was a bit of a flop, as we did it at the end when everyone was tired/leaving XD whoops!

Saw so many awesome costumes!

A slender flame burns at the edge of my heart
Without warning, it spreads into a burning passion
