MCM London Comicon 2015

MCM Comicon London Spring 2015 (1)

Hey guys how are you all? Today I wanted to share with you guys all of the really awesome pictures that I got from MCM Comicon in London. I only had time to pop into London for a day since the convention is smack dab in the middle of my exam season but I had tons of fun talking with cosplayers, artists and con-goers all day. MCM in London takes place at the Excel Centre, an absolutely gigantic venue and rightly so because there were tons of panels and special guests featured for the weekend. I ended up at the Bandai Namco panel and Agents of Shield panel before the cosplay show. I actually found the Fall convention in London more exciting than the spring one because there seemed to be more anime cosplayers in the Fall however I ended up stumbling into a HUGE Disney photo shoot which was a real treat for me as a fan.

In order to travel light I brought along my Nikon 1 J3 with the 10-30mm lens great for casual photography and vlogging of course. My camera actually used up both batteries before the end of the day so I didn’t get as many photos during the cosplay showcase as I would have liked however I did grab a ton of video footage throughout the entire Saturday. The vlog will be uploaded soon and of course a Haul video is also in the works. I hope you guys enjoy these photos and don’t forget to check out MCM Comicon’s official site to see where their other conventions will be taking place in the UK.

MCM London Comicon TItle

Hey guys, how are you all? Today I wanted to share with you guys some really fun and casual cosplay photos I took at MCM London Comicon. This was my very first convention in the UK and I only went on the Saturday of the three-day con weekend however it was probably the biggest convention I’ve been to thus far… Although the panels were more of a minor aspect of the convention itself, it had a phenomenal Dealer’s Room, Artist Alley and sponsor’s stands presenting tons of great merchandise, fanart, crafts, and promotional activities for new games.

The MCM London Comicon VLOG will also be coming soon as well as the HAUL video on my channel =D

I also got to hear Shinichiro Watanabe speak LIVE. AHHHHH!!!! He talked a lot about his latest creations this year – Space Dandy and Zankyou no Terror, two series different in every way. It was really insightful to hear him talk about the contrasting elements of each show from its animation to its music and Watanabe-san’s own connections with each series and plot. A fan asked Watanabe-san what motivated him to create a story using terror as a theme and Watanabe-san answered by saying that he didn’t start out with the desire to explore the theme of terror. Rather, he started out with the characters, a group of troubled teenagers against society and it just so happened that the medium of the story through which these characters were explored was terrorism. Was it realistic? Yes and no. Watanabe-san said he intended it to be both realistic and also sort of fantasy-like and he decided on a somewhat open-ended conclusion to the series because he really meant for his viewers to offer their own interpretations of the story, its emotions, characters and themes. It really was such an honour to hear him speak about his works.

Since Saturday is always the biggest day of the convention there were TONS of cosplayers. I really enjoyed the convention as a fan so these pictures are really casual and unprofessional in every way. I took them with a Nikon 1 camera and really just snapped shots of what I liked and a lot of times I ended up zooming in to crop the feet out just cause I was so intrigued by the actual cosplay piece itself. I hope you guys enjoyed these photos nonetheless.

My favourite pics are definitely the ones I got of Love Live’s μ’s (Muse) idols. (∩˃o˂∩)♡ Not gonna lie, I really tried to find all of them…
