    MCM convention has been unusual for many things, it was around the corner so i went for a peek,I didn't even go in, but very soon found it very unusual.

    The Excel large open secluded area, allowed a sort of hot brighton summer atmosphere to quickly build and soon there was loads of cosplayers and a bloody rave.Dj and everything.loud system. In fact it felt so different it attracted alot of the locals who came just to see what's going on. Then when it finished officially,it didn't. it just went on into the dark hours outside Excel.


    YOU HAVE ONE MORE DAY! ...... ;-O....

    I took photos, there will be videos. Here's the cosplayers..








    More photos are at this MCM Flicker set, more will be added...

    Apart from only wanting to shag a bird dressed as Catwoman, I'm not big on the cosplay thing. But the rest sounds brilliant. Good on 'em.

    You're so cynical.......:-)....

    If you want "bare as you dare" ignore the cosplayers and just follow the locals.

    Most of the cosplayers are in like 30 layers of fabric in 30 degree Celsius heat(86 Fahrenheit),
    waving swords/staffs/lightsabers/axes/fake guns in character at you. You'll have an easier life elsewhere.

    But I got the subliminal Flecky ;-).....I will take some pics of some guys for you...lol!

    I did take some but our male gender had no where near some of the female gender's level of commitment
    ,i mean on a mass scale. There was a lackluster effort by the guys.I saw only one Jedi too.


    Oh yes the gun thing.Replica Guns!!?? in East London!! Being held by flocks of kids.
    That's automatic arrest around here..usually...im not kidding.Whole "armies" walking around. tooled up,
    and they looked very real. Somewhere somebody is counting their money.


    Hopefully some of you will get to the Rave ...sorry Convention......it might never be this
    sunny again.

    Oh yes I was talking about the convention being awash with replica guns not just in the
    convention hall but people taking them to the shops outside and just basically wandering
    about with them like this....

    The Cosplayers were still just too amazing....

    It was actually a lot cooler inside the con itself, first time I've been to the Excel and they've remembered to turn the aircon on to be honest.

    The Wolverine guy proved hard to take down, because he's a hard bastard.

    But the rest...well, I just left a trail of comics to my white van. Once inside, ether did the rest.

    Oh, how we played. Such exotic pleasures beyond my wildest dreams. I'm saving Man Furry for last, because he screams the loudest.

    I enjoy my work, it stops the voices.
