What up people, it’s your boy Starfish here, taking a break from the movie reviews and giving you a different kind of review today.
So MCM comic con rolled into the Excel again on the last weekend of May, and I have not attended in some time. This was due to my own personal things, new job, money issues, trying to kick start my new TV show, “Pirates of the Arabian”…..still don’t know why it didn’t work…
But this was the first time I attended since Reedpop had taken over the comic con, so I was intrigued to see what was different. I can tell you now, I had the best time that I’ve had in a long time.
For me, it is true that absence makes the heart grow fonder because I missed it all, the good stuff, the cosplays, the stalls, the food, even the queuing and over packed halls, I had missed it all Haha
I had the chance to walk around inside and was impressed by the changes in some of the stalls, there were new stalls that I hadn’t seen before, there were new kinds of experiences that I hadn’t seen at the con, for instance, I believe there was a design booth, where you could create characters, as well as more stage areas for different panels and events.
I know there has been controversy over how special guests were treated, I can’t comment on that because I didn’t take part in the meeting of special guests but I can only hope that things get better in this regard. A little less “the right-hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing” and more organisation will always be beneficial.
And my God the cosplays! Since the last time I went, there were great cosplays, but it’s like you all looked at previous ones you’ve done, and just gone “Hold my Nandos bottomless refill!” There was a new level, with some incredible craftsmanship, and creativity that made genuinely regret not cosplaying myself!
I genuinely had the best time at comic con on a Saturday, so much so that I’m REALLY hoping I have the weekend off in October. Starfish needs to get back into the cosplay world! I hope you all had a wonderful time as well and enjoyed the con! Now on to the summer!!!!!
