London MCM Expo May 2013
Hey everyone~

I thought it'd be cool to make a thread about the London expo in May - seeing as there isn't really one up yet

I'm going all three days (as far as I know) and I'm planning on doing different cosplays for each day.

Here are my plans:

Friday: Katniss from The Hunger Games
Saturday: Allen Walker from D.Gray-Man (casual because I don't have time to make/get one of his uniforms)
Sunday: Noodle from Gorillaz

So, what is everyone else cosplaying and on which days?
(I'll make a massive list below of all the cosplays for each day~)

My tips would just be to not to shy away from talking and getting to know people, or joining in with things, because you'll regret not doing so later xD

These are my cosplays if I get them done in due time ~ :3

Friday - Sylveon
Saturday - Kid!Loki
Sunday - Daniel of Mayfair

Don't worry! You're not gonna be the only first-timer there. I'll be in the same boat. As I'm almost certain that I'd never be able to get three cosplays done in time for one convention, I'm gonna stick with just one for the whole weekend.

And, of course, me - in my infinite wisdom - decided to go for Aeon from Castlevania Judgement. This quickly sprang to mind. Oh, and this. Wish me luck!

Don't be nervous! We don't bite
I'm hopefully going for Saturday and Sunday, I'll be Jill Valentine from Resident Evil 5 on Saturday and hopefully Anya Stroud from Gears of War 3 on Sunday (if I can get it finished in time! :O)
i'll happily come and say hi to you! (:

I'm going all three days and assuming plans all work out I'll be going as:

Friday: Shiina from Angel Beats!
Saturday: Latula Pyrope from Homestuck
Sunday: Stocking Anarchy (angel version) from Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt

My back-up plan should either of the new ones (Shiina or Stocking) fall through is to re-wear Rise Kujikawa from Persona 4.

As for tips, echoing what everyone else said. I find the meets, if there are any for the series your cosplaying from, are a lot of fun and a great way to meet people but even that aside generally people are lovely and it's a great event.

I'll be there for all three days too, although I haven't finalised my costumes yet.

My advice for a first timer is to sign up for a cosplay group/meet/photoshoot, and then talk to people at it.

If you are cosplaying a character you like, you will automatically have an excuse to talk to people cosplaying from the same source.

Also stop cosplayers and ask to take their photo. Compliment their costume, and start conversations that way too. If you get on well with anyone share contact details (website, Facebook, Cosplay Island etc, NOT phone number or address!)

90% of the cosplayers I know and meet-up with at expo are people I met through cosplay groups.
