Expo plans
With the May London Expo fast approaching, I decided I'd ask what everyone is planning to do. Whether you're meeting up with friends, taking a load of photos, or there's something you really wanna see; why not tell everyone what you hope to do

I'll be trying to get photos with friends, have fun, and also celebrate my birthday in cosplay.

Also hoping while wearing Wreck-it Ralph cosplay with friends on the Friday, we run into a Calhoun cosplayer so we'd have the main four.

Bring on Expo.

I'm waiting for their schedule to go up to see if there's any panels I want to check out.

Usually I wander the halls, try to get brave enough to ask cosplayers for a quick photo and around lunchtime meet up with some friends to chill.

I'll be working on the cosplay desk. Depending on how roasting hot it is I may wear my Kyoko costume from Deadman Wonderland. Come by and say hi, we have repair materials, a bag drop for use of cosplayers only, and little bowls of sweeties!

This is my first convention so I'll probably be walking around for ages trying to find my way around xD
I'll be meeting up with some friends and checking out the hall. Hopefully will be taking pictures throughout the weekend too.

My friend and I have a table in Comic Village as usual! It's great fun but it sort of limits the time I can spend doing other things, although I usually get to have a good look around and meet up with a couple of people. Still, at least having two costumes as well as selling comics means I'm never bored, haha...


17 Apr 2013 - 20:46101151
Being possibly my last expo I decided I should go out with a bang. So I'm just looking at doing 2 cosplays and try and do them properly for a change and see some friends and buy some stuff for once since forever haha.


17 Apr 2013 - 21:11101152
I'll be hanging with mah friend Shannondorf for the weekend c: On Saturday I'm cosplaying Meta Ridley doing what I normaly do, walking around, talking with other cosplayers, meeting friends ect... Also Entering the masqureade :3 Sunday I'm doing the same but in a different cosplay and Idk about the masqurade yet XD I'll be arround though watching people and stuff.

I'm also tempted to film the weekend, Then put videos on Youtube c:

For once I think I'll actually be about on Friday! Which is nice as it's so quiet. Considering organising a UMvC3 photoshoot and will definitely be hitting up the Watanabe panel/signing in my Faye Valentine cosplay. Also going to make a concerted effort to get something from Comic Village Other than that it'll be the usual craic with my friends that I look forward to every year - lots of photos, looking at lots of amazing costumes and lots of laughs <3

I know the feeling, Last year I was donkey kong and I had at least two inches worth of foam all over most of my body, plus fur and stilts not fun :/ *hopes for less than 30 degree weather this year* But either way there's cooling spray and water so if it's that bad again people in huge cosplays can survive C:

Never actually used cooling spray, when I quad usually patch myself up with cool patches, bursts of cold freshness all day 8D

XD nice, I only used cooling spray once and that was because some nice people gave me some, gonna try and bring some with me this time round c:

Yayy, sounds like a awesome idea xD I've just designed meta ridley so that air can pass though him easily, I hope

Myself, I'm trying to look for the perfect black trenchcoat for my cosplay of the movie version of "The Spirit" and I've had no luck so far with the ones that I've found so far either being too short or not big enough.


18 Apr 2013 - 17:42101211
I'll be cosplaying Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time on Saturday and Asuka from Evangelion on Sunday.

I just plan to have fun with my friends, maybe make some new friends, have fun in cosplay, hopefully get some photos and buy some stuff!!

I don't really have much in the way of plans when I'm actually at the Expo. Right now, I'm focusing on trying to get my cosplay finished on time.

The latest of my many setbacks and mishaps is the home-made wire cutter I was using for cutting out styrofoam pieces burning out after cutting out just one piece.

Though, being a first-timer, I decided to order an Aeon cosplay as a fallback measure. That way, if I don't get my own one done in time, styling/modifying/constructing the wig/boots/sword won't have been in vain and I can still have fun as I originally intended.

On the bright side, I do already have a lesson learned from this endeavour: pick something simpler! If I'd found Homestuck sooner and decided to try my hand at Sober Gamzee (TAAAVROS, TAAAVROS! give me your answer, do...), I likely wouldn't be having this trouble! Ah, well! We live and learn, right?

I've had to leave Luna for MCM London and just wear her for manchester rather than wearing her at London and Manchester.

I dont know who I'll be wearing now :L Either Chespin or Donkey Kong is my guess


21 Apr 2013 - 22:31101367
It's my first con, but there are a few things I definitely want to do. :3

I want to meet up with some friends (some I know well, some I only know over the web), go to the Mass Effect meet up, meet Mark Meer (eeeeeeppppppXD), take lots of pictures and see if I like it there!

I'm going as Tali'Zorah, so if you see me, come and say hai. ^__^


22 Apr 2013 - 09:18101375
There are a few things I want to do whilst there! Friday is going to be mainly playing the games on show that I'm really excited about while the crowds are still relatively small.

Saturday will be the day I cosplay! Will be rocking my Alundra costume, doing some shopping, meeting up with some friends (who won't be cosplaying, boo) and playing some more new games if they're not too packed. Sometimes at MCM I'll head outside to the front of the expo where all the shenanigans are taking place, but it's never as fun as it is inside.

Sunday I might cosplay as well, but it depends on how tired Saturday leaves me feeling. It'll be just like Saturday but a bit less hectic and I'll be leaving early to go to another event. I'll be packing a camera all three days though so I can capture all the wonderful costumes going around!

I'm hoping to actually get to go to one of the DC photoshoots this time, I've been to quite a few Expos and I always seem to end up missing them.

There's a little group of us doing Green Lanterns so we will hopefully get some group shots taken aswell at some point.

Other than that i'll probably do the usual and end up buying far to much stuff that I don't need xD

Seems to be a trend - I've been warned to leave my credit card at home as I'm a very impulsive buyer!
