    The Expo Beckons!

    Post  turbulentDuvet on Thu Oct 25, 2012 12:11 pm

    Hey gang, thought I would do a little bloggy type thing about my impending experiences at the MCM Comicon at the ExCel centre in London this weekend.

    I went full otaku and bought the early entry ticket so I'm sat at the station now waiting to journey to London, and get an preview of what will be on offer tomorrow.

    My cosplay for Saturday is a little lacking unfortunately, I coundn't find any decent masks to modify in time, and my mig hasn't even dispatched, so I cancelled that, and hope to pick one up tomorrow. The costume itself is mostly fabulous, expect glorious full colour photos! Just that the collar is a little floppy, and the knife sheath is just a knife shaped piece of cloth, no pocket or anything P:

    Oh and the boot, oh my god the boot I found are awesome, furr lined and compfy and just pure awesome sauce <3

    I'm meeting up with the resident Mr Knife on Saturday too, so god only knows what will happen then >Very Happy

    I shall be present on the Saturday, but I will be around London for the whole weekend.

    I plan to suit up, and don my V/Anonymous mask, with a hat to cover my distinctive hair. Expect me.

    The expo is on all weekend so if you flail your arms and legs really hard.. . You'll probably still miss it.

    Anyway, my room. . . It appears to be a converted 3 story terrace house. However every room is booked, and the staff are quite polite and were very welcoming.

    On the subject of welcoming, one of my 'welcoming gifts' was a standard tea-maid, you know, the little pods of milk, sachets of sugar, coffee, hot chocolate. . . . But no cup! Great I'll just brew it in the kettle by the litre bounce

    The en-suite is only a shower, something not mentioned in the room description, but I do have my own fridge and iron+ironing board, some hotels have a communal ironing room for guests.

    There is a proper communal area here too for guests, not a bar or restaurant, just a small fitted kitchenette and furniture.

    Roll on tomorrow! Night guys <3

    On my way into town now on account that I will mo than likely get lost on the way, that and I can hang around in Waterloo station for a bit. Nearly forgot my camera earlier, and my oyster card (like a Pre-paid swipe card for London transport).

    Just had a delicious chicken Katsura bento box for lunch, Japanese portions are always so small ;~;

    Next expo is May, turb. 24-26/05/2013. See you there Wink

    So, sadly, I have no camera and therefore no photos from the weekend, but it was certainly a good weekend. Spent plenty of time chilling with ma bro turb, we met my friends from Canada, and turb even helped me to film shoutout videos for Somnova. And I owe him money. Basically, more people should come next time. It'll be awesome :3
