There's some unique things going on down South this September that might interest you.

The Akari Lantern Project are looking for a small number of Cosplayers with traditional Japanese costumes to take part in the Thames Festival Night Carnival on 11th September. This is to raise funds for the Japan Society Tohoku Relief Fund which supports people affected by the earthquake. If you are interested in taking part, please send a photo (or a link) of your cosplay to Mark McEvoy. For more information on the Akari Lantern Project, visit their site.

At the end of the month grab a fantastic bargain at the Royal Opera House costume sale! With prices from £20 upwards there should be some exciting things to pick up! Head over to their workshop in Purfleet, Essex on 24th/25th September. Let us know if you find anything special!
