London Comic Con - MCM Expo

The expo is always great fun with a massive turnout! this ones more for the anime geeks in the group ^_^ does anyone dare to cosplay and who or what will you go as?

more info on dates and tickets here: http://www.londonexpo.com/

UPDATE! :

So with less than a week to go, I hope those with costumes are ready or putting finishing touches on the outfits.

Those with early bird tickets i would aim to get there for 7:45-8am to avoid alot of the queue, I recommend meeting at the top of the stairs outside.

Those with normal tickets you cant get in till 11am so get there for 10am.

I will warn you now, the later you leave it the more crammed the tube will be and then most certainly the Docklands light railway.

Also please have credit on your oyster card for ZONE 3 travel, if you dont have an oyster card WTF?! get one :) last thing anyone wants is to wait for people to top up or be stuck at excel due to lack of funds.

See you there! Matt

    Can't wait to see Matt's costume. Wearing a link tshirt today. Yesterday was quite quiet. Might not be as mental today as Saturdays usually are. ;)

    May 26, 2012

  • Ali

    when you getting Here I'm already on top of the stairs.!!!!!

    May 26, 2012

  • Matt K.

    there was a slight problem with my outfit so im gonna be LATE! :( really annoyed :(

    May 26, 2012

  • Rachel J.

    Ok yeah If it's cool, we can meet at 11. Anyone else that wants to come later can join us. I'll probably be in the queue from about 10.30 anyway. Just lookout for tankgirl :-)

    May 26, 2012

  • Bruno M.

    As for coming later, yeah, I still estimate to arrive there around 11am, but at some point, either just before going to the queue, or right after, I'll need to go to the toilets to apply make up, which might take some time.
    You're still welcome to join me and form a second landing party (I like that term :P) but all times are still very undeterminate, no guarantees (I still need to finish the guns part of cosplay...).

    It will be interesting to see everyones costumes. I'll be going as a balding sweaty overweight guy in t-shirt and jeans... the classic "dude doesn't have a costume" look ;-)

    May 25, 2012

  • Bruno M.

    Custom House is the DLR station, it's less than 5 min away from Excel Center, and like Matt said you wont miss it... In fact once you'll step out of the station you'll feel like you're in the MCM expo already, given all the other geeks around just for the same :p

    May 25, 2012

  • Matt K.

    i thought custom house was the excel center, dont worry you WONT miss it, 200% garenteed! also you can just follow several 100 other people

    May 25, 2012

  • Rachel J.

    Ok also, how far is custom house station to excel?

    May 25, 2012

  • Matt K.

    ali if your there in time, look for the 7 foot tall red/black robot by the stairs outside, we will head to the queue at 8:10, gives everyone 25 min window to get there and meet up :)

    May 25, 2012

  • Rachel J.

    Bruno you still up for meeting later in the morning?

    May 25, 2012

  • Bruno M.

    As for the pub stuff, the MCM saturday party only starts at about 8pm, so I most likely will also be hanging around on a nearby pub at the late evening, and get the party mood started :P . I think I'll definitely need to take a break to find a place to shower away the makeup/blood though...

    May 25, 2012

  • Rachel J.

    What!!! Really!! I live like an hour or so away!!! Oh crap! Well yeah ok sounds good. I was thinking more like 9.00am but ok :p

    May 25, 2012

  • Ali

    At 7:45 the queues are already massive!!
    For those attempting to arrive at 8:00 am, can we exchange numbers so we can find each other on the day more easily?

    May 25, 2012

  • Rachel J.

    Right I want to get there early as I have an early bird ticket, but not 7.45 early. If anyone else feels the same, shall we meet up at another time? Would anyone else be interested in doing this?

    May 25, 2012

  • Sergio G.

    I'm probably going to be skipping this one after all, everyone. Having lived in Dublin for 4 years, I'm programmed to take advantage of sunlight as much as possible, and spending the whole day indoors seems like poor use of the fantastic weather we've been having and are expecting :-)

    If anyone wants to take my early bird ticket for Saturday for free, let me know!

    May 24, 2012

  • Ali

    Matt that costume will be AWESOME!
    I will try to be there at 8 am.

    May 24, 2012

  • Matt K.

    my vote is on the NEAREST pub, i will def want a beer after lugging my costume around

    May 24, 2012

  • jessica w.

    I didn't want to go there for exactly that reason it will probably get packed because it's the only pub nearby then after that you have to go at least 1.5 miles away.Anyway it doesn't bother you your not coming!

    May 23, 2012

  • Bruno M.

    BTW, any particular reason you guys, after the expo ends, are meeting at a pub far away from the Excel center? I hear people usually mingle for some time in the Fox pub just outside the station/Center, and it looks like a nice pub.

    May 23, 2012

  • Bruno M.

    Jade: I've also seen those vids and it didn't look that great, but I also never been before and want to try it at least once and see for myself how it's like! (Don't know anyone else who has gone either)

    May 23, 2012

  • jessica w.

    I'm aiming for 8:00am :/

    May 23, 2012

  • Matt K.

    can i get quick show of hands for those who are meeting me with early bird tickets?

    May 23, 2012

  • jessica w.

    well I'm thinking along the lines of leaving when the show finishes at 6pm and the journey takes half an hour so any time between 6:30 and 7pm.can't wait to see it matt!

    May 23, 2012

  • Matt K.

    i think ill probably ask people volunteer to take it turns to guide me round and make sure i dont knock people over lol i should be able to get there with not too much trouble :) we will see as i start to finish pieces and attempt walking in it all

    Sounds good Jessica. Been debating with a few friends where to go after. When are people rocking up there?

    May 23, 2012

  • jessica w.

    For those who aren't going to the after party join us at the half moon,mile end road,mile end. BTW matt do you still need a hand with your costume on the day? lol.

    May 23, 2012

  • Rachel J.

    Never been to the after party before. However I have looked at what its like on youtube... And it doesn't look that great :/

    Has anyone else got any confirmation if what it's like?

    May 23, 2012

  • Bruno M.

    BTW, is anyone else going to the MCM Saturday after party? (note you need to buy separate tickets for that)

    May 22, 2012

  • Bruno M.

    Nah, I'm not clubbing at all Friday, I want to be fully fresh and charged for MCM expo! :p (Plus, my costume will take time to prepare on the day cause it involves a lot of blood make up.) BTW, it seems the expo will be open on Friday for early bird tickets, I wonder what that preview is like... I've never there on a Friday.

    May 22, 2012

  • Matt K.

    Bruno your so going clubbing on friday night arnt you lol
    i used to get there about 11 but you have queue for the DLR then queue again for expo, the whole place is heaving all weekend.
    as i say the early birds can come with me if they wish and the second set can meet up later. its all good :)
    im cutting it close with getting my costume done in time :/ arrrgg!

    May 21, 2012

  • Bruno M.

    Yeah, I've been before several times, but usually only got there at about 11-12am, when the queues are not that big... but you do miss a significant chunk of time at the expo (often leaving you wanting more at the end), so I wouldn't recommend going that late unless you're a hardcore sleepyhead like me :P <br/> I'll try to come sooner this time, although it wont be as early as 7:45 -_-'

    May 21, 2012

  • Rachel J.

    Oh my my costume is hella lame in comparison to all of yours :(

    May 21, 2012

  • Rachel J.

    So have all of us got the vip early bird tickets? O.o That is early!! But if it is packed out then fair enough :O

    May 21, 2012

  • Matt K.

    Bruno have you gone before? the queues are fraking massive! just search on youtube for queue videos, and with some people (bruno) who are usually late, i expect to join the queue to get in around 8:15, to 8:30

    May 21, 2012

  • Bruno M.

    7:45 AM? 0_o'

    May 21, 2012

  • Matt K.

    Info has been updated

    May 21, 2012

  • Bruno M.

    Whoa dude, you didn't even go for the simpler Gundams! Tall order... but I hope you make it!

    May 14, 2012
