Who says there aren't any 'adults'? Many expo goers in the hotels are over 18. =P

because i wasn't allowed to stay in a hotel on my own for expo until i was 18. (well, not alone but without parents) and my parental units are fairly loose about that stuff. although to be fair i was with my boyfriend........
it's just a case of waiting until next year or even the year after.
there's no hurry, expo will be around for a long time yet considering it gets busier each year. and you don't miss that much by not staying.
try not to push your luck too much. >w<
if you're that bothered with wearing both cosplays you can always go and change half way through the day. the excel centre has toilets (duh) and changing rooms and a place you can stash your bags so you don't have to carry them around with you.
like said before, if this is your first expo i'd leave it to only one day. especially if a parent will be going with you.
Plus you need to stay in your parents good books for the money. XD
it's stupidly expensive at expo. you'll be spending alot of money so it's really best to keep it simple for now.
like everyone else has said.
one day is enough to start off with.
most people only do one day (*cough*me*cough*) and it's plenty enough time to get the good experiances of expo.
and like said before, you can always change half way if you're that bothered. or save it for Expo in october. or any of the other cosplay events during the year. ^^

If you're over 16, and really are desperate to go for both days, see if there are any other adults going who can supervise you? Or depending on how expensive trains are you could go both days? Or look at coaches which are cheaper? If not I'd say go with Hannah-Kiwii's advice and wait until next expo when they've seen that you're safe and everything. And don't storm out during a discussion, that doesn't help XD Stay mature *nodnod* thats how i got my parents to let me come XD
