I'm going~

I'll be Allen from D.Gray-Man on one day and Shion from No. 6 the other. I haven't decided which one I'm doing on which day though... :/

My sister's going as the Scarecrow from Batman: Arkham Asylum both days (as far as I know. She could change it at the last minute XD).

I'll probably just be wandering around, maybe taking pictures, and most likely doing K-Pop dances xD

This is my first Birmingham expo but I've been to the Telford one... 5 times now? I think...
What's it like inside? Big/small? Is it crowded like Telford was this year?

It's a bigger venue than Telford, plus because it's the NEC there's more surrounding the hall- other events/places to eat and such. It's somewhere between the size of the Telford and London Expo, I guess! The Sunday is a lot more relaxed though.

Awesome costume choices by the way!

This'll be my first Birmingham Expo. Can anyone give me an idea what the NEC's like for taking photos and the like? Any nice locations?

Photos
Birmingham memorabilia now has an Expo event running alongside, it is very confusing. But basically it is Two giant halls, huge halls. If you have ever been to the Telford one, this hall is quite small compared, it can be a bit diffucutl at times taking photos in the main hall, with all the stall people walking by etc, but in long corridor with seating and blank walls, there may good places.
Don't know if you have ever been to birmingham NEC before but if you havn't and are driving, dont' worry there are alwasy plenty of nice attendants guiding people to the right car parks.

Ok

Thank you!

I saw you at Telford last month, by the way~ Awesome costume
I guess I'll see you around at Birmingham too~

The NEC isn't the best for lighting, but there are some cool corridors and colourful walls if you head up towards the main part of the NEC. There's a little bit of grass outside where Memo and Expo are, but for prettier scenery, there's more of a grassy and garden sort of area with trees and a pond if you head to the centre of the NEC and make towards the Hilton hotel and the LG Arena. It's a little bit of a walk, but I can't think of anywhere else, sorry! D:

I haven't been the to Birmingham MCM before either so thank you to the person that asked about it and to the people who answered, very helpful


04 Mar 2013 - 15:2698087
I'll be attending!

I'm cosplaying Training!Foxface from The Hunger Games on the Saturday and on the Sunday I should be cosplaying Student!Tonks from the Harry Potter series.

I'm always excited for the Birmingham Expo as it's usually pretty calm and always nice and relaxed.
See you all there!

Thank you Tracy and themrmaster for the info


04 Mar 2013 - 17:1898097
I've never been to Birmingham Expo before either, so I have to reiterate the thanks for being so helpful and informative.

I'll be kicking about as Tonks (mostly to keep a certain dog in check. 'Padfoot's wrangler' counts as a job title right?) and Marion Ravenwood. They're both incredibly lazy outfits, but I mainly want to go for the photography side of things this time.

Hope to see you all there!

The lighting at the NEC can be a little shoddy but it's pretty bright in there during the day and there's plenty of places to choose for photos and things. n_n

if u need an idea of what pics u can get from the nec i have a couple here

http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/costume/view/71402

these were taken at the pond bit at around dusk/night time. its by the lg arena so its not close to where the expo is but it is worth it none the less

for its second year im gonna say its gonna be more like telford and manchester (dunno if uve been to them) but it should look less crowded cause its 2 halls instead of 1

Hi all!

Even though I have lived near Birmingham for years I have yet to make it to expo here as I am always busy and end up going London + Manchester instead.

But this year! With no Kitacon to go to I will be coming to this years expo!

I hope to wear a cosplay that has literally only ever been worn for hours before. It was supposed to be entered into the Kitacon 2012 masquerade but a mis-hap with some make-up meant that it took way too long to get dressed and I missed rehersal.

So then! What cosplay will I be wearing I hear you ask?

I have NEVER seen this character cosplayed before (other than in a mirror xD) and cannot find images online of it either so I will proudly be showing off my Mira Nova cosplay

For those who don't know her, she was in a Disney Channel tv series and film spin off from Toy Story entitled "Buzz Lightyear of Star Command"

This is her:




The costume has been improved since its last wear but I won't have the contacts in as I can't drive in them xD

If you see me then please come say hi as I LOVE to meet other Mira fans!

You just reminded me that you've snapped some good photos inside the NEC! ;D
There's a few here: http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/costume/view/67430
and one of the area immediately outside the hall here: http://www.cosplayisland.co.uk/costume/view/58594

I don't think I have anymore NEC photos to hand... But apart from the metal shutters, there's some colourful walls down in the main bit of the NEC. The prettier location is definitely down by the Hilton/LG Arena though if you're determined to get some pretty backgrounds. P:

I'll keep an eye out for you! I'd forgotten all about that spin off, I used to love it! XD

I'll be going on the Saturday in my Anders costume from Dragon Age 2 and I'll be bringing along a Fenris.
Would be nice to get a Dragon Age group.


I could be tempted to bring Isabela on the Saturday if there is going to be a DA group
