I'm afraid I'm going to have to cancel going to this. My original shift pattern meant I had the Expo weekend off so I didn't book it off, but now cause a new line has been added the shifts have to be changed and I'm working that weekend now. It's not possible for me to book it off cause it's too many people have booked off May.

Really annoyed by this >___< Shift work is suppose to mean my routine is almost set in stone! FFS!

T-T and I don't get to see people's costumes!!!

I'll be booking that weekend off definitely, even if I'm suppose to have it off!!! Thankfully I got a cancellation policy this time on my room, so I'm not losing much money.

That sucks, Nixie.

I almost got stiffed over with this expo myself. Had the weekend off and the week after as I'm staying in London with a friend. Then one of the guys at work left and the manager decided because we're short on people holidays were in danger of being cut. Needless to say, I was not giving up my holiday.

I'd definitely be up for a meet in October too, though.

18 May 2012 - 12:0384279
With the weather how it looks at the moment, I'm considering leggings and thermals XD.
Oh, and don't forget we'll have a Deadpool trying to sneak into all the photos


18 May 2012 - 14:5084290

TIME AND PLACE
OK, so we need to set a time and place for this lovely group!

There's a triathlon thing happening on the saturday. Here's a map of the area that's off limits to us cosplayers and MCM goers on saturday;
http://www.greatswim.org/App_Files/Gr_Files/British-Gas-Great-London-Swim-2012-Finish-Map.jpg

Since this means pretty much the entire grass and tree areas are off limits we need to think of somewhere else, especially considering all the other MCM goers and groups will be struggling as well.

Now, since the Marvel vs DC group ( http://www.facebook.com/events/176563339107949/ ) is planning on meeting at 2pm, I was thinking maybe we meet before at 12?

Location wise, I'm not 100% sure since the red tile wall area bit at the other entrance will probably be taken or very crowded. Underground car park maybe? There's usually loads of space there. If anyone knows any better locations please let me know! I think if we set somewhere to meet at least, then we can always follow to a location. I think if we meet at the other entrance (on the side where the Premier Inn and Ramada are).

So I'll 100% confirm time and place tomorrow night.
Feel free to bring cameras, both still and video! I'll make sure we get a big group shot.
Can't wait to see everyone!

P.S. On a shameless self promotion note, I'm happy to do individual and group photo shoots with anyone, here's my cosplay photo gallery so you can see if you'd like a shoot; http://www.flickr.com/photos/celynch_photography/sets/72157629649751873/

PaperTiger:I think the underground parking would be really good for some grim/gritty looking photos.


22 May 2012 - 17:2784480
I'm afraid I've never been in the underground car park so I'm not sure how to get there but it sounds like a really good place for photos!

(I'm going to be incredibly shameless and ask if I could please get a couple of specific photos and a few individual shots, by anyone? I'm going on my own and I don't know any photographers or even any friends who would take photos..and it would be really nice to get some photos, especially if someone could point out when I have a double chin or when I'm pulling a dumb face or silly pose or whatever XD I'd also really like a shot of me as Black Canary doing the Canary Cry with everyone covering their ears and things like that XD Idk I think that'd be a really fun shot, but I know it's selfish of me to ask for something like that)

Anyway everyone's cosplays look REALLY good and I'm incredibly excited! I can't wait to see you all!

quixoticschlemiel: I'd love to get a few pics with you. I really like the issue were Black Alice and Black Canary fight. I've only got a digital camera, nothing special, but I'll happily take some of you if you'd like.


23 May 2012 - 08:1484515
I'm happy to do pics for everyone!! =D

So if we meet at the other (Ramada and Premier Inn side) entrance at 12 and then we get some pics at the red tile wall and then make our way to the underground carpark for more pics and hanging out

I need to re-read those issues again! I'd love that so much, it would really make my day if we could get some fighting photos c:

Meeting at the other entrance sounds good to me, I'll make sure the Expo forum-guys know!


23 May 2012 - 12:5284529
My brother is a pretty decent photographer and he's coming along (out of DC costume, he's Marty McFly) so I'm sure he wouldn't mind doing some good quality shots, he should have his fancypants camera with him I think.


24 May 2012 - 10:1784591
Guys! Problem!

Apparently there's a big MLP meet at 12pm at the East Entrance. 70+ people big.

And a couple of MCM Forums people can't make it for 12. May I suggest we meet at 1pm instead, or maybe 12:45pm or something?

How does that sound?

(Who else is worried about the sudden heat @_@)


24 May 2012 - 12:1784597
The fact that I'm wearing a full latex black mask? Very worried about the heat. I will be keeping a lot of water handy with me, or I may pass out. xD

The space issue was always gonna be around since we found out the grass is off limits. I think the red tile walls are the best place to meet simply because of how easy it is to get there for people who may be unfamiliar with the layout and of course as said on MCM forums, we'll be on our ways soon enough. As for times, 12:30-12:45 sounds good to me, gives us plenty of time to do our own thing before heading to the M vs DC shoot at 14:00.

Aaah, excitement is creeping in!


24 May 2012 - 13:0884601
I'd say meet at 12:45 and then wait til 1 before heading to the carpark for pics, that way its gives everyone a chance to find us =] its cooler in the carpark so that'll help

Thank you very much, the MCM Forums peeps will be very happy!

I've got post-Kapow flu ;-; I'm still DEFINITELY coming, but a fever + heavy leather jacket + heat is not going to be fun ;-; But my actual costume's technically a swimsuit so I can always just dip in the river XD

I'm really excited now <:


24 May 2012 - 13:2984606
I don't think dipping in the Thames is gonna help you feel better. xD

We'll just pour bottles of water over you. xP


24 May 2012 - 17:2284618
12:45 @ red tile wall is cool for me.

I'm not exactly looking forward to full make-up, wig, boots etc. :/ Positive thinking though, right?
