Hey, jumping in with the UK thread. I'm Rhi, older than your average first-timer I suspect (I'm 28) but better late than never? I live in Birmingham, though I'm originally from Wales, and currently beginning (very slow) progress on a couple of Homestuck costumes (Rose, Terezi and Nepeta primarily though I'd also like to eventually try Feferi and some dreamself costumes...yeah, new and I already have a ton of "want to dos"...now just for the making and the finding somewhere to wear them!)

Ok, well I'm Debz. I started cosplaying 2 years ago, they've all been pretty crap so far but I'm hoping to make a good Rinoa and Refia cosplay for MCM Expo in May. Whoop.

I'm Akishiko and started cosplaying about 2-3 years ago. Not much done, since I only cosplay at conventions. Nice to meet you!

Hey! I'm not a new member here but I've decided to make a new account since my other one is outdated..

Erm anyways.. I'm fairly new to the UK, just moved about a month ago from Canada. I'm in Horsham atm, and planning to attend MCM in May. I love geeky things, and I'm 22~ You can all call me Kura :3 I am looking to meet new friends!

I've been cosplaying for about hmm.. 6ish years? The first couple years was the whole "I'm young I'll get mommy to help sew half my stuff" but I've grown a lot since then. Some of my past latest costumes (that I've made entirely on my own) include Roxas (organization XIII version) Jaden Yuki from Yugioh GX and a Renamon fursuit that I'd made for a friend. (I'm not a furry but the costume was loads of fun to make :33)
Won two awards at Fanexpo, but they weren't in the masters division so I am far from being a pro haha.

I'm now looking to try my hand at Lightning from FFXIII-2 with the armour because I love a challenge! (I was contemplating Anise from Tales of the Abyss because I am short! But I couldn't pass up the chance to try my hand at something new!)
Might be a bit hard though.. I don't know what all the craft and art stores are called over here! (Where do I find foam paper?! Hahaha.. oh well I have time to figure that all out ;3)

Nice to meet you all!

Hello guys! [: I'm Becki and I will be 24 by the time I attend this years May MCM. I've been going to MCM since 2009, and have been to a couple other conventions as well.

I generally usually go down the steampunk/victoriana route when I'm at MCM, though one year I did go as Sebastien from Black Butler.

This year I'm going as Effie Trinket and Narcissa Malfoy, but I like the way that the Effie costume is going so much that I might drop out of the Narcissa one... *rubs chin*

I'm staying at the Premier Inn for all three days during the convention - so if you're sharing the hotel drop me a line and we can hang out! <3
London MCM May 2012
Friday - Lolita Neko (original)
Saturday Morning - Steampunk Faun (original)
Saturday Afternoon - Effie Trinket (The Hunger Games)

Manchester MCM July 2012
Saturday - Queen of Light (Mirrormask)

London MCM October 2012
Friday - ???
Saturday - Emma Frost (Marvel)
Sunday - Effie Trinket [violet dress] (The Hunger Games)

Hi AngelicaEve, if you go to May Expo head for the cosplay desk in the Totally Cosplay Zone - there are always friendly staff and cosplayers there, a great place to start making new friends. The other thing you can do is look on the MCM forums and see if there is a cosplay group which you would like to join in. Groups are also nice places to meet new friends safely. Ask if you can do such and such character and you are off to a good start.
Cosplay plans 2012

May - London MCM Expo - Madonna :P
May - London MCM Expo -
