After spending our first day at MCM London Comic Con finding our bearings, doing a little window shopping and hunting down Game of Thrones cosplayers, day two was a day of pure Disney delight! I wore my Megara cosplay, and it was so much fun sashaying around channeling her character. I had some really lovely comments, and spent the day connecting with other Disney cosplayers and fans. There were so many fantastic costumes, especially at the Disney meetup that took place that afternoon. The most magical moment was at the end of the meetup, when a Kit cosplayer led his Cinderella to the front of the crowd and proposed! It was the most magical way to pop the question.
My favourite costumes of the day were the other Hercules cosplayers I encountered. There was a couple cosplaying Hercules and Megara, and the Meg was kind enough to share her Hercules with me for a few photos! There were also a few Femme Hades' wandering around, including the one pictured below with the most amazing wig - I was in awe! Other favourites included a beautiful Esmerelda and a girl who'd created Margaery's wedding dress from Game of Thrones (not Disney, but still amazing!).
Of course, there was also shopping to be done! Now that I had a better idea of what was around I picked up a few goodies, including a bento box, some cute stationary, an alpaca plush keyring and an 'Eat Me' ring, all of which will be featured in my May favourites post! The area surrounding the Tofu Cute stall had to be my favourite spot on the convention floor. It was pink pastel dream! Even the staff members looked the part, decked out in incredible headdresses and accessories. I could have spent all day there eating and people watching!
The cherry on top of a great day was meeting a handful of people who recognised me from my blog and/or cosplays. It absolutely makes me day when it happens as I love meeting my readers in person, and as it happened a few times it left me on a real high. The internet can sometimes feel a bit lonely and isolating, so putting real faces, smiles and voices to the names and words on the screens is truly wonderful.
