As soon as people start coming in (that is to say, when the early entry people start to pile in) then we accept registrations.

This is done at the Cosplay Desk, which is usually near the main stage.

Excellent news.

Question about Sunday. Myself and two others want to enter on the sun but I don't have regular contact with the other two. Would it be possible to enter on the day? If so what time is a good time to try and get a place?

Thanks

On the Sunday I'd recommend getting in by 11:00 at the latest (assuming we're opening at 10:00).

Once you have filled the form in it will go through to a thank you/rules page, if you don't see this page we won't have got the entry. All I can suggest at this point is that you make sure you have filled all the fields in, and that you have ticked all the boxes at the bottom to confirm that you agree to the various rules and terms and conditions.

If this still doesnt work send us an email (cosplay@mcmexpo.net) containing all of the information asked for in the form and we will see what we can do.

You'll have to wait for the doors to open- it's a bit cheeky otherwise!

Reference pics, group details and music should be emailed through to us after the online form has been completed. The online form asks you to do this at the top of the confirmation/rules page you see once your form has been completed.

Reference pics can also be brought along on the day.

Okay, maybe I'm being exceptionally blind, but could someone possibly tell me what the email address is to send music and progress shots to?

Thanks a bunch! :]

Has been asked a lot, but have the confirmation emails gone out yet to people saying they have places/have not got places? I can't see anything of either acknowledgement in my email inbox. :S

It's good to hear that there's a changing area as I'll need to change cosplays during the Saturday from my Nabeshin one into my Turks uniform...

Can't believe I forgot straws again though ;_;

Our helpers and cosplayers both made it an easier event than previous London Expos, even in the face of things such as a lack of tables.

I was really pleased that everyone to enjoy themselves. We'll sort out proper feedback etc in due course, when we stop aching :P

Well we wouldn't want you collapsing on us now would we - especially just before your big moment :)

James and Joe do a great job of heading the cosplay desk and the little gophers (like myself) are always glad to assist them. However, as much as we all try to make things run smoothly and on time there will undoubtedly be some delay or other - of course through no fault of our own. So thanks for understanding - and I'm glad the water and sweets were well received :)

Yes. Thank you Cosplay team.. you guys all did such a tremendous job right from registering to organising back stage, drinks and sweets, bag drop, judging, music tracks, MC /compare etc .. really appreciate everything you did!
