On the 28th of October I headed all the way to London to attend MCM London Comic Con and had an amazing time!! This year it was even bigger and better than ever!!! The attendance was huge and cosplaying was second to none!!
Rick and Morty Cosplay
Last year Deadpool dominated the cosplay scene but this year it was all about our favourite Grandpa/Grandson duo. There was even a pickle rick in the crowd as well as Bird Person!! We also spotted a few Mario and Luigi’s as well as my favourite Gintoki Sakata. Of course there were many other characters but to many for me to name or remember.
I also went over to the comic section to have a look what artists had their work on display. I didn’t purchase any but I did spot a few Cardiff artists which was seriously cool!! It’s nice to see welsh artists touring the UK with their work. There were many genres on hand ranging from LGBT comic to horror and to the downright weird. All artwork was exceptional though!!
The food, as always was top notch!!! You could get Chicken Karage, Pumpkin Katsu, Chicken Katsu Curry, Marshmallow and Chocolate, Hotdogs the list of food goes on and on!!!Many of the stalls were selling food products from Japan and decided to purchase Kit Kats. Flavours included Almond, Sake, Sweet Potato and Apple as well as Wasabi (it’s grim). When I was out in Tokyo I bought soo many different flavours and now I’ve run out so I needed to taste them again!!
Stalls ranged from Independent retails and designers to big companies such as CEX and Maoam sweets. You could purachse a range of items from full on figurines to Dakimakura’s (there was a Harley Quinn Dakimakura that I regret not purchasing) as well as plushies. Funko Pop had their own stall in the Comic Con which looked amazing. I was on a budget on this trip to I dared not venture!
What did I purchase
I purchasd a harness from the independent boutique 8th Sin. That’s right I went to the geekiest event in the UK and instead of purchasing badass figurines or plushies or anything geek related I came back with S&M gear and Kit Kats. To be honest we do not have any room in our tiny little bedroom to cater more figurines and also we have soo many figurines we haven’t unboxed yet, maybe it was the wisest decision not to purchase any more for a while!!
