Happy Halloween everyone! In the spirit of the holiday, I thought I'd share a few of the photos I got at MCM London Comic Con last week with some of the incredible cosplayers I met. I also have a vlog that will be going up this weekend that will give even more of a flavour of the event, however for now I will say that it's the best fun I've had since we last went to Disneyland! On the Friday I wore my Briar Rose/Sleeping Beauty cosplay, and on Saturday/Sunday I was Ariel, and having people recognise my characters and ask for photos was such a lovely feeling. I even met a few of my blog readers and the fabulous Becky from Becky Bedbug!
Tackling public transport during a convention is hilarious. I was in cosplay all three days, and I loved how more and more people in cosplay filed onto the tube the closer we got the Excel. There was such a sense of celebration and community, and they were some of the nicest, most accepting people I've ever met. It was my first convention and my first time cosplaying, so I was really worried I'd feel sidelined, however the moment I first made eye contact and shared a smile with a fellow cosplayer I knew I had nothing to worry about.
We came away exhausted and completely swamped with footage and photos to edit, but we were still on such a high. From here I'll let the photos and video do the rest of the talking, however if you've ever considered cosplaying or going to a convention I can't recommend MCM London Comic Con enough. Snap up some tickets for next May and I'll hopefully see you there!
