Oxford Circus Crossing Openning

Cosplay Island was live on the scene of the opening of the new Sibuya inspired Oxford Circus Crossing. With loads of great cosplayers and London's Mayor Boris Johnson in attendance we braved a very cold London morning to bring you this event coverage.

This report is so much better than BBC

I love how the bbc report describes the cosplayers as "devotees of cult Japanese Manga characters"

not laughed so hard in ages

but seeing this report made me wanna be there all the best stuff happens in london...

Doh! I walked through that

Doh! I walked through that junction at 8am that morning on my way to work and didn't see any cosplayers there...

Cookies (and a steaming mug of tea) for all the cosplayers that were involved!

We missed you

At 8am we were probably just getting changed. The cosplayers get to Oxford Circus until around 9:30am hence that's why you probably didn't see us. Shame, would have been good to see you there =^_^=

Woo! Thanks Nia, Rosie and Perrin for that great report - so pleased you did it.

And from a selfish point of view, you got loads of me/Lina, yay! =^_^=
Although the bright red wig does make me stand out somewhat...

Thanks again! =^_^=
