The Online article only has a piccy of James, so they probably didn't see the print article. Don't worry I posted a link to my scan

One of the bosses where we work very kindly also scanned it in earlier - except he sent it out around the company

Oops, my mistake, I didn't realise there was a different one! =>_<=

It's good that they have kept his parents house in the background of that photo - at least it shows Prime's hugeness more than the one in the printed version - where he was somewhat shrunk!

Thanks for scanning the paper article for everyone =^_^=

No worries hunny, I had to scan it to go around the office myself. For different reasons obviously!

Yes, the picture on the Metro website is much more striking as you can see the scale of the costume.

Hmmm, maybe I should work on that one, it would make a good headline!

Thanks for posting the link Mike, I think the article came out really well and they got some good shots of Leena and me in the paper version

Great seeing you in the paper James, you deserve some recognition for all your hard work! Well done

Nice one!

Kind of surprising that this is in paper from the people that give us the Daily Mail. Still, it is a great article.

Congrats James and Leena. I have kept a copy of the artical in a 'omg! I've just met these guys' moment. Also because it was a cosplay artical.

Fantastic layout and pics.

I'm a little late finding this thread but CONGRATULATIONS YOU GUYS!! Photos were nice and the interview sounded very professional ~ it's great to have cosplay presented in this way.

BTW thanks for sending the text about it to my house phone James ~ I picked up the phone and got a random recorded voice saying "Cosplay's taken over the Metro" LOL!

Doh, what's he like, eh!
I guess his head is still in the clouds (and not just because he's so tall!)

Indeed we are! Please form an orderly queue for autographs

Hopefully, this will now help Joe Public to understand cosplay a lot more

IT HAS ALSO MADE THE NEWS CHANNELS.

On Sky, French24(or some channel like that..) did a 20 minute news report on a large convention in Paris, interviewing cosplayers, and the artists alley a few months back.

Lol, I saw so many characters I knew, the reporter even spoke to a Naruto, and in the background there was an Itachi and Saya (from blood+) reading Loveless. They have a news report on the culture of cosplay and everything.

I was watching something about George Bush on the news just before it, I joked on my dinner when it came on.

Oooooh if anyone went to the manga maniacs day at the urbis, an article was also written found in 'Manchester confidential' about the cosplay event, plus there was pictures too off some of the cosplayers. I say yay!!! for making it known!
