MCM Comic Con London May 2018
Just a brief blog for you lovely lot as it is mostly going to be photos of this event. 😛
Andy and I went to MCM Comic Con London on Saturday and it was fantastic! As expected it was very busy but it was so much fun to get to meet lovely people and take as many photos as humanly possible with as many wonderful cosplayers as I could. Make sure to check out the pics below, who knows, you may be in one. 😉
So what’s great about MCM Comic Con:
- cosplayers (hands down my favourite bit)
- special guests (yes I got to see Tom Ellis from not so far away as he played guitar and sang an Ed Sheeran song. You can find that photo on my Twitter/Instagram page @TahraMalik).
At one point Andy and I needed a breather (as it was quite packed inside) so we headed outside the doors for what was supposed to be a brief time but that soon changed! They had a live stage with music and dancing if you wanted to join in, and an open space where it was just a sea of cosplayers all chilling and mingling. And the weather was perfect too so that was an added bonus. It’s amazing to just be surrounded by all these creative and fun people who love to dress up as characters and getting to see what/who they’ve come as and how they’ve created it. (I may have got a little excited every time I found a fellow Lara Croft lol).
In my eyes, and I’m sure Andy feels the same way, this event is honestly such a fun experience! If you haven’t gone before I would recommend it, especially if you are into your popular media, sci-fi, cosplay, video games and somewhat nerdiness from around the world. Fair warning, make sure you go with enough money, you never know what you may find there unexpectedly and sometimes it’s not cheap. They do provide ATM machines, however the queues can get ridiculously long, and even though card payments are taken at some stalls, it doesn’t always work, hence needing cash. I ended up falling in love with and grabbing an elvish crown which can be worn two ways and I’m already planning two very different future cosplays with it.
All in all, a super fun day! Cannot wait until next time.
