Quote PandoraCaitiff:

Take a camera and ask cosplayers (politely!) if you can take their picture. Find ones dressed as characters you like and you instantly have something to talk about

We're a chatty and (mostly) friendly community!

I'm always nice (well.. most of the time at least xD) - but I usually ask nicely if I can take a photo =) Well, I won't be completely alone there, my flatmate will travel to London with me, but I really hope I'll get to know some nice people

Friday: Kuroko Tetsuya (Kuroko no Basket)
- I've ordered the jersey, I just have to wait for it to be shipped. I still have to get the wig, contacts and shoes.

Saturday: Cirno (Project Touhou)
- I commissioned the costume and it's supposedly finished. I just need to try it on and make sure it fits since I always have bad luck when it comes to commissioners. I have the wig and the socks, just need shoes and contacts (I'll probably reuse Kuroko's).

Sunday: Morgiana (Magi) or San (Princess Mononoke/Studio Ghibli)
- I'm going to attempt to make San's costume but I don't think I'll have enough time so I have Morgiana as a back up, I still have to buy contacts and the wig and make her necklace though.

I've barely made any progress ;__;

I will be there on the Saturday only however I will be cosplaying Alucard so this makes up for it a little.

I'm gonna be there on Saturday! I'm hoping to go on the Sunday as well, but have not fully decided yet as the group I go with usually only goes on the one day.

Either way, I will be doing a Professor Layton cosplay with The Wookiee as the Professor and me as Emmy Altava. Hoping that together we can do some sort of in-character skits while wandering around, as it gives me an excuse to take lots of photos!

I'm making both costumes as The Wookiee has clumsy fingers and can't sew very well. The last time he tried, he got his fur stuck in the machine and it was quite painful for him; he nearly took his hand off, poor beastie.

Expo Tips

Try and bring a packed lunch or just some snacks during the day. Food is super expensive and spending a full day at MCM is a lot more exhausting than it seems >__< You don't want to be lagging and tired in costume half way through the day

Don't feel too overwhelmed or shy. There are a lot of people at MCM so don't be scared If you like someones costume, want a photo or just want to say hi, go over to them. The people I have met in the past have always been lovely.

Hope this helps :3

My most likely plans are:

Friday: Touko (Pokemon Black/White)
Saturday: Nami, Arlong Arc version 2 (One Piece)
Sunday: Rarity, Crystal Empire inspired outfit (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic)

I would've liked to do Gary Oak on Friday, but I still haven't gotten around to shooting Touko and there are some places around Excel I'd like to use. I really hope the weather will have warmed up by then. XD

I cannot stress enough the importance of eating and drinking at Expo. For some reason I never feel very hungry over that weekend, but it can get especially crowded and intense on Saturday. Even if you're not hungry, get something inside you to keep your strength up and keep hydrated. Food inside Excel is quite expensive, but if you head towards the Ibis hotel there are some little shops nearby which I often like to use.

Can finally throw together Magic Man after the hat turned up a tad too late last October

Change of plan for Friday...


Either my Good Smile Racing Miku or a volume 4 cover Misa Amane?
(No pics of Misa yet, I'm waiting for it)

Edit: never mind, I think I'll go for Miku as the shoes are less expensive to get than for Misa xD
