Then I Bit Your Face wrote:The Trafalgar Law and Perona pair: THEY GAVE ME A CUPCAKE and thats the first time I'd seen a law cosplayer so I was all OMG


I hope you enjoyed my cupcake! ;D Thank you for being so enthuastic about our cosplays and One Piece x3

As has been said above, thanks to the weather for being so nice, despite the rather severe sunburn I've acquired.

Thanks a lot to the staffer who helped me and my boyfriend find our friends in the early entry line (since one of them had our tickets xD), would never have dared walk down it without him!

And thanks to anyone I met who made the whole experience awesome.

No thanks to the super crowded main hall on saturday where I felt like I was going to faint (well done all you people wearing very thick/heavy cosplays!).

Next time just go: "You're only jealous because I can play wheelchair basketball and you can't."

As I work in care and am around people in wheelchairs every day, these people obviously have no idea what it's really like. Report them to expo staff for being utterly horrible people with no sense of empathy in my honest opinion.

:arrow: Thanks for you all who came this week end, this was epic, I so much enjoyed myself! Thanks for all the customers who enjoyed themselves. Your joy is my drug! Keep on rocking in MCM people!
:arrow: The guy who said that even the Expo people could be cool as well (not sure how to take it though lol) and hugged me… wait, I hugged him ^^
:arrow: The Zelda wolf that played with the young child next to the main stage on Sunday after being filmed. Sweetest time at the expo ever!!!!! If anyone got a video, upload it ^^
:arrow: Big Thank you to the crew I led at the main stage Sunday, just plain awesomeness, everything was perfect! Hope to have you back in October!
:arrow: Thanks for the akatsuki cosplayer, who told me that I won the game!!!
:arrow: Tonyo Aka Nightowldarsky for saving me his last raffle ticket ;)
:arrow: The 3 girls who danced Y.M.C.A with me on stage Sunday, sorry about my craziness lol
:arrow: Big Kudos to the guy who handled me a lost Camera, people like him are rare nowadays, and I really want to mention him!!!
:arrow: Best regards to the annoyingly lovely girl at the Merlin queue :wink:
:arrow: Thanks for the one who make the Expo, The Expo!

NO thanks at all, for the people throwing rubbish anywhere even if there is a bin 5 metres away, it must look cooler to just throw it on the floor I guess…

Massive apologies for the stick/axe I walked on Saturday. Hit me please, I know I deserved it! Thank you so much for not being upset, I really really felt so bad! :oops: :oops: :oops:

[ :twisted: Evil mode: ON]
I wish the weather was bad so I could have seen more cosplayer going around the expo itself ^^

Great expo in general, loved the weather for sure and the Touhou cosplayers.

Main gripe was the 'Good Ol' London Transport failed once more in keeping thier trains up for a pretty major event, shame on you London Transport!

Otherwise, loved the whole thing. My only advice to the organisers is to plan ahead with the London Transport to stop them slacking, those silly gooses!

The weekend I found myself dreading not too long ago was an overall success. So there are a lot of thankyous needed

My thanks goes to Robyn, who put up with me all weekend.
To Kit, who puts up with my whining 24/7.
To "Kingsley Shacklebolt", for helping us.
To the Terra cosplayer (I'll drop you a line later, most likely) who made me feel welcome, and to Locke, who finally turned up!
To Jen and Emily, who comforted me when I got so upset.
To Kim, the Zidane, who really made my weekend.
To all the masq stars...you rocked!
Oh, and Tommy too, for remembering me! (his aweome mission continues...XD)

I had alot of fun! With my first stop over for the whole weekend and Masquerade entry.
One thing that annoyed me though was the litter on Saturday.

Me and my friends returned to Expo at around 8, and the whole place was covered in litter from fellow expoers!
SINCE WHEN ARE YOU GUYS SUCH SLOBS?
There where ALOT of new people at Expo this year and by 2pm the place was a wastedumb.
It really made me sad because it made Expo just appear like every other place, dirty, with rude and un carrying people

The litter really was terrible. It was worse than reading festival and even then most of the time its just messy due to the bins being full.

As i only went on satuday, the train lines in the morning was alright(but london transport was annoying to go to central london >.<), so that was okay. It was pretty cool watching cosplayers getting on the same train as us......especially Tetris block guy...i couldnt stop laughing..hahah.
There wasnt really any thing that really stood out though...except for a few, like the random tent tardis, the super awesome joker who really did look him and had the attitude, the massive deathnote book xD, Tetris block, scarecrow, man with no face , (i dont know..what film is it from..), CATS. I noticed a lot of Kuroshitsuji cosplayers, which was pretty cool....too bad i missed the Seb and Ciel in a dress cosplay D:...i really wanted to see that >.<. Eugh..annoyed >.<.
LOL at the Sign- Free Swine Flu...=S..
I went to the Masqurade for the first time since going to Expo in may 08, it was alright... happy and proud that the Hetalia(sp- i dont watch it...) group won one of the ..prizes. my friend was China. The amount of people that kissed...especially Emo cloud hahahahahha( i never seemed to record the groups that kissed eachother hahah).....my eyes were watering xD. Shawn the sheep was awesome....and Nurse Joker.

That is aweful rivervine, there's no need for that. Hell I may even end up being in a wheel chair in october, I have heart surgery coming up. The fact that you still made it to the expo and enjoyed yourself says it all. I agree, you should run the buggers over next time :D

I just want to say a big thank you to the guys who took part in the carameldansen/timewarp/conga line that my friends and I put together around 1pm both days. I had so much fun, we couldn't get over how well it went! We DEFINATLY plan on doing that and more in october! XD

- Thank you to the TF2 group from Saturday for making me laugh inside my gasmask so hard, that I had to sit down, and for making some awesome photoshoots.

- Thank you to Leadmill for lending me some of the stuff for Combine on the Sunday. You're a legend mate.

- Thank you to anyone who gave me a sip of their drink on the Sunday. It was so hot inside an all-black combat suit, and the gas mask was, in effect, a very thick sheet of death and hatred.

- Thank you to everyone I recognised from last expo, and all the people I mjade friends with this time around. Specially hack and the individuals who joined me during chillin' tiem next to the water.

- No thank yous to the lady at one of the food stalls who asked me if I wanted any more than the bottle of coke that I had put in front of her, and kept making me repeat myself because my gas-mask muffled my voice. I only wanted a drink. D:

- Thank you to Sophy and Ruth for letting us mooch off you two for two nights. Free hotel room forthewin.

- Thank you to everyone, really. The sense of community is as strong as it's ever been at the expo, and it's only getting better, in my opinion.

So yeah, ending on a cheesy sentiment.
Awesome.

Whew.

Big thank you to my mum and 'Tim the TomTom' for getting me there.
Thank you to the woman I saw on the bus that was driving next to us that smiled at my fairy cosplay and waved at me.

Thank you to the Finland FF battle people, that was a BLAST and that Sakura who helped me advertise that thing.
Thank you to the group on the sunday afternoon where we played Corners, red rover, etc..even though I can't feel my legs today..

Thank you to everyone who works at the expo.

Unfortunately I can no longer come, I'm moving to the US in July. D: Also, I was quite saddened at the lack of sci fi. but ah well. Good luck and have fun in October and future Expos everyone. <33
