Londoners?

Postby cyborg2000x0 on Thu Aug 28, 2008 3:14 pm

I would like to hear about any London cosplayers that are going to attend Octobers Expo, share the love, and show everyone the host city's spirit :). More specifically I'm from the East end of London and I've honestly never seen or heard of anyone who has gone in cosplay. I feel all alone here :( . So tell me if anyone of you are from London and are going to Cosplay this year.

P.S. This year I'll be attending the Expo as Tobi from Naruto, and I've already created a mask but it's made out of paper mashe (sp?). It looks ok but its very bumpy and rough, so does anyone have any idea how I can make the mask smooth? :? Thanks.

Most people who attend are actually in London or nearby. I'm in North London myself.

For the mask, the best thing to do without making a new one is get some non-quilted toilet roll or newspaper, and very lightly coat some sheets in watered down PVA glue and layer them on. You should get a smoother finish that way, but you would have to re-paint it.

I went to my first London Expo in 2006 and I'm a North Londoner ^o^
And everytime I've gone, I've been cosplaying too :)
Hope to see you at Expo!

Hmmm maybe build up a few more layers on the papier mache so it's sturdy enough to lightly sand down?

Wow! I didn't know so many cosplayers were from London, I kinda assumed that most were from elsewhere, but thats probably because I don't personally know anybody else who cosplays. I do have a group of friends who always attend the expo annually with me none of them have cosplayed yet :(. But that will change shortly :wink: . It's great to know there are others out there but I would also like to know if anyone from the east end will be doing it?

South London, over here!
I've cosplayed twice before, but managed to attend a con at least once a year for the past two years. I try to cosplay when I can. Will be cosplaying this year too. ^_^

I'm from the South-East, Peckham to be exact but I've lived in Lewisham, Catford and New Cross too.

I also went to school near Beckenham/Bellingham area!

I've been cosplaying for a few years now and it's always awkward moving through the east/south-east of London in costume LOL

(Moving as it's more of a general thing than a pure cosplay thing)

That couldn't be more true where live, I live in east/north-east London borough of Waltham Forest, more specifically in Leyton. People in my area just aren't used to seeing someone walking around in full costume in public, but its still fun seeing how they react to it. :lol:

I couldn't relate more, my friend's into it more than I am... but we're both pretty dedicated, and we're forever trying to find more people. :lol:

in my area to get to either of two stations you have to walk past dozens of chavvy middle aged building contrusction site workers who thinks theyre sooooo sexy when they have their hairy butts out on show. lol. and you get the high school chavs walking about with their dogs to give them an ego boost because their all mouth and no action. so i know exactly what its like.
