MCM EXPO London 2012

It's time for MCM EXPO London~ May 26-27, 2012. Hordes of people had gathered at ExCel London because of their love for anime, games, manga, cosplays, and most importantly, FUN!

I was a bit late with the post ^^"

The journey to ExCel was a bit long from Victoria Station, where I usually stop whenever I take the coach to London. My journey was 3 hours long. It was so amazing as I boarded the tube to get there and at the platform when I'm supposed to change to DLR. There it is! Expo fans in costumes, cute accessories and some with neko mimi can be spotted! I was so excited! 

On the way walking to the Expo, I saw some an Avenger cosplay group near the entrance! Lucky! I manage to get a shot of them:

The weather was so hot! It's summer now I guess, kinda good for me since my costume was thin. But I still feel very hot because my wig was so thick and long.

I specifically choose a simple cosplay for events around here, easier to wear and bring around. I came up with another Orihime outfit ^-^ This time it's the outfit from Bleach Opening 10: Shojo S by Scandal, an outfit which my friend suggested many years ago since the episode with this song just aired.

I got in line to get my tickets and it took me about 45 minutes! I spend my time there in the queue admiring other cosplayers' costumes as well as pose for some orihime lovers, lolz! 

The long queue

After coming out from the ticket selling area, I was out around searching for my friend when Orihime bumped into herself! XD This is Mariana in Orihime's arrancar uniform. She is so creative in making this costume she only did it in a very short time!
We had the same hairpins! >v<

When I went into the exhibition area, this is the first thing I see... *eyes wide open*

YAOI stuffs for sale.
No no! Don't get me wrong, I'm not into this kind of stuffs! :X

Finally I found Tidie~! She's cosplaying as Chibi Igirisu-chan from Hetalia~ It's her first time trying to sew her own costume. She even cut the hair herself! So happy to be able to see her grow in cosplaying.. eh? wat am I talking about? I sound like an old aunty! XD  
Eh? Our pose looks so familiar :P

Her character is Chibi Igirisu (England) from Hetalia. She is so fond of men in uniforms, ahaha!

Yuffie and... Reno!!! ♥
Now now, it's not because of the uniform, it's because of the red hair XD

Selphie and Rikku

A very sweet Tifa~

Gippal and Rikku in mage outfit?

Gigantic Pikachu!

A really pretty Blue Rose from Tiger and Bunny~!

Ace from One Piece.

And later I met his little brother, Luffy! 

I also met a celebrity there! It's Soul King!!!!! He even have the heart shape specs! Aww~ In case you were wondering who's Soul King, he's actually Brook from One Piece, yohohohoho! 

Erza, Lucy, and Cana from Fairytail.

Johnny Depp! Ops, wait I mean Jack Sparrow, tee hee...

Loki and Thor, gender bender :3
The girl in pink has a mask that looks like Nanika from HXH. 

Met Homura in the toilet.

Neytiri from Avatar.

Cloud in Kingdom Hearts version.

Beautiful Belle.

Kaoru and Hikaru

Honey-senpai and Mori-senpai~! Honey senpai actually gave me a white rose after I ask him for a picture...

Aww... Honey-senpai, so cute of her him ♥♥♥

By the way, this is my cosplay~ I forgot to take a proper picture at the event with my own camera ^^;

The cosplay Masquerade competition was really long. There's a huge line of cosplays and they're so amazing! What I love about this event is that there's a cosplay area with changing rooms and fixing booth where people can get their costumes fixed if there's any problems. Even though I didn't really use it but I find it really helpful for cosplayers with costumes going wrong and I know how that feel.  There's also various performances or shows at different stage so you wouldn't get bored. There's so many cute things and anime related stuffs for sale. I really wanted that Boa Hancock mouse pad but I was too shy to get it. There were also a lot Avengers cosplays since the movie just came out. I also liked those gender bender cosplays where they showcased their awesome creativity!

I really had an eye opening day at MCM Expo London. It was really great being able to see Tidie again and go see all the beautiful and amazing costumes made by dedicated fans. There are more pics at my Facebook album, especially those stage shots with cool armours and weapons, but they're a bit blurry. Feel free to tag yourself or your friends if you recognise them~!

I think probably this is my last expo in UK, but I really hope not! Hopefully I will change my mind but for now I need to concentrate on my studies and other things. Plus I don't really have any costumes ready anymore, eheh! ^^" You see, most of my wigs are shipped back to KK so that I don't have to worry about having too many things to carry after my studies. And I wanted to stick to my cosplay plans but that's the problem, the fabrics that I bought are also in KK >.< Oh well~ I'll just have to resist!!!!

I'm really sad that I can't go to AFA Malaysia D: Kaname was spotted with red hair!!!! :X Tasha and Miyuko from spcats where there as well, not to mention, lovely Ki-chan was the meido at MMK!!!! I really want to see her! >v<

Hope you guys in Malaysia are having fun~! I'm stalking photos of Kyan!me and AFA Malaysia now (-^∀°-) Wish I could be there with my friends! Miss them a lots! 

Take care minna~!
