So here’s the first of three posts dedicated to MCM Comic Con at Birmingham NEC. I went on the Sunday so got to see Q&A sessions with RJ Mitte, Colin Ford and Cary Elwes. I admit the last two were just from the side because I was busy doing other things but it was great to see the show has become even bigger this year and that there were a lot more bone fide celebs in attendance. The NEC was very busy with at least two other big shows taking place – a motorbike show and a Christmas Gift Fair.
I will post separately about the Q&A’s and Star Wars stuff – of which there was plenty. This post is dedicated to the cosplayers. Thank you for letting me take your photos. I hope you approve. If not let me know and I will remove them off this post.
There were so many wicked costumes this time around, but it was also very busy so I had to be choosey. Hopefully my pictures are fairly representative of the crowd there on Sunday. Star Wars pictures are separate and I dissed off anyone dressed as Poison Ivy or an Assassin on some principle I have now forgotten… A shout out to 007magazine, Arekkusu Cosplay, Kismet Cosplay, no-Limit-Cosplay, Lonely Red Planet, Zagone Studios and the mostly harmless Barry Bulsara (more on Barry in the Star Wars post if I remember…).
