In October I attended my first ever McM London Comic Con and it was the best event I’ve ever been too!!
We arrived at the venue and 1 o’ clock which I was slightly worried about since I’ve been told that you need at least 2 days to see everything so I was quite worried we wouldn’t see much in the 5 hours we would be there. Luckily the queue to get in took literally a second which is always a plus in my book! We arrive at the venue and it’s huge!! It is twice the size of Motorpoint, Cardiff and it has so much to offer!! I didn’t know where to begin so Jenni suggested we start at the very end and work away around. By the time we got to the end of one stretch of stalls I had already purchased my weight in merch.
I didn’t realise how many stores around Britain sell anime/geek/kawaii gear. It was refreshing to find different brands and designer as well as new comic book artists. One of my favourite new finds was dreamybows.com which sell the most Kawaii merch around!! So pink and pastel and dreamlike. I will definitely look at their in more detail soon.
I also spotted a few of my favourite brands too including Wildcard Clothing who were selling such a perfect jumper. It would make a great edition to my huge winter jumper collection. As always I wasn’t financially prepared for this event(!) I took more money than usual but it still wasn’t enough, the next comic con will be held after my birthday, after payday (winning) AND after bonus(fbikbikvbidebgv!!!!) so it’s safe to say I’ll probably be buying anything and everything next time.
There were stacks and stacks of plushies everywhere!! I had to resist buying them all!! I bought myself two which you shall see in an upcoming article but they had the chibiest Mew Two plushie, it was the size of my palm. I wish I had bought it, oh well, next time!!
There were so many amazing artists too! I love branching out and finding new artists and I found so many amazing ones at Comic con. I bought a ton of new artwork which I cannot wait to show you.
Instead of boring you with words I’m going to let you enjoy the images instead
The cosplaying at the London Comic Con was something else!! I’m going to try and build my confidence up and ask people if I can document their hard work. I would love to cosplay, I’m hoping that I’ll get enough courage to do so by March.
The Sailor Moon cosmetics looked so pretty but they were very very expensive. I might put some money away and get some at the next comic con.
