Hey~! Congrats to everyone participating in the attempt, we did it! (Even though I'm actually helped another country in breaking a world record...oh well. XD) Next year 500, a 1000!

Wishful thinking? No way~ X3

Nah! With greater notice, organisation and a little sign posting at around the venue that could easily be achieved.

Well done everyone, you did it :D
342 games characters on Saturday, just 5 over the previous German record.
And I'm sure we can go even higher in the future.

The guys from the London games festival who arranged this record attempt have asked me to pass on there thanks to everyone who took part, it's a record for all of you!

Go UK cosplay! :D

I did the world record attempt. I was in the early 300's forgot which one I was. I was cosplayed Arturo Plateado from Bleach: Shattered Blade on the Wii and before anybody says anything I WAS accepted as Arturo is a game only character and does NOT exist in the manga or anime.
BOX TIME!!

I was about 95 in the attempt, I was stood next to Da Qiao (Dynasty Warriors 5) in the individual photos and had to hold her sign up for her XD! Was almost late for the shoot so I was on the far right side, throwing up the good old Wario salute with a WA HA HA!

If a 50 more people had actually read the rules it would have been much more.

True.....but then they didnt realise about their characters not being in a game first i guess

Normal?!??
What is this 'normal' that you speak of??? :lol:

GunstarVixen, when you made your LeBlanc costume - I bet you never thought you'd be in the national newspapers showing off your frontage with it, did you! :lol:

It is a fabulous costume and you wear it so well - no wonder it's at the front of most of the photos :D
