Not with a bang, but a whimper…
MCM is over! And after such a long weekend, and the drive home, all we were capable of was crawling into bed and passing out for about twelve hours.
It was a wonderful weekend, and a very successful first convention for Manga Market – I’m certainly pleased with my haul! Lots of pocky, and a fantastic gathering of DVDs, including Rozen Maiden! And a new DS game, Ivy the Kiwi, which looks like the most adorable thing ever.
We were situated just by the exit from the hall, next door to the guys from Cyber Candy, and had quite a nice little setup!
Tom gets to know our neighbours, Cyber Candy, and the Candy Overlord.
After a 4am start, Jon got to know Mr Mountain Dew, kindly donated by our friends at the Cosplay Portrait. They were so busy all weekend, go see their photos!
On Saturday and Sunday, I was out and about in Cosplay, and saw some brilliant cosplayers over the weekend!
On Sunday we also had a fairly epic Zombies vs Cosplayers British Bulldogs match outside the main entrance!
This! Is! COSPLAYYY!!!
The Resident Evil crew got a bit carried away in all the excitement.
This little cutie was wandering around with her mum shouting “free hugs!” through her trumpet. Who could turn down that offer?
Luke and Layton!
The Candy Overlord > you
Aaannnd it’s over. Phew.
We had a great time, it was fantastic to meet you all! Keep an eye on our photostream, I’ll be uploading more photos as the week goes on. We’ve got a great selection for caption contests over the next few weeks as well!
