I know exactly what costume I'll be using. I've also been wondering when the UK would get to compete in the WCS. Loads of my french friends kept on asking me why the UK wasn't part of it.

Big costumes are fab and all but what really counts is less about 'OMFG LOOK AT THAT BEJESUS WINGS ON THAT!' And more about 'wow the finish on this is AMAZING!'

The simplest of cosplays can win if they are executed well!
Either way it'd be nice to enter something. A;though i think i'm gunna keep trying for the comps at cons for a while before go anywhere near this! ^^'

This would be awesome ^^

Sounds absolutly fantastic. It's a shame I'm not really at the level to compete.

I think we will all support whoever gets selected.

Well this is rather awesome news.

Unfortunately I don't do big and flashy so I'll never be picked but still it's good for those that do.

I don't have a cosplay partner yet. So not sure if I can enter. I would love to before I completely retire from competing. Anyone up for teaming up with me .

This is great news through. I can't wait to see what costumes peeps put together for this.

This is fantastic news. I am excited for the UK cosplay community! I will definitely try and give it a go if my studies don't get in the way (although I have three costumes in mind) and if I can find someone to do it with!

. . . and everyone, don't feel you shouldn't because you feel that someone else is better than you. Every cosplay and cosplayer are unique. You do not need to worry about being compared to someone else, because it is just fantastic that you make the effort. Enter because you want to, and most of all it is all about enjoying the cosplay experience! I will admit, this is probably easier said than done.

I was actually going to make the suggestion a long time ago that the forum lacks an "LFG" style subforum. I've just been very busy.

The only sad thing really is that this is probably going to stop me from getting my Flammie ready for next year's EC =(

This would be an awesome thing to take part in!

Unfortunately, I don't have a partner, nor do I have enough money to make an amazing cosplay, so there's no way I could ever get through =p

Oh well, looking forward to seeing people's entries ^^


24 Jul 2011 - 15:3264133
Great news that we're finally getting to take part. UK is making their mark. Shame taking part is out of the question for me for many reasons. Kinda sucks that you need a partner.

Already got costumes, source, and skit planned :3 I'm doing my deconstructions and face/side sketches as I type.

Flammie would need Karen to have something SoM related. Besides, what we have planned is even cooler!
