I like Midlands as well as the London show. It's not as big but it is still a great atmosphere especially for cosplayers.

Zoku-chan if you want to see UK photoshoots check out 'Cosplay Island' - this is almost entirely UK cosplayers. It's also where a lot of UK cosplayers choose to linkup, talk, share pics etc. If you are wanting to connect with UK cosplay this is a good place to go..

Are there many cosplayers in the Dudley / West Midlands area? I've always wanted to get into cosplaying but my family and friends are not into manga and anime let alone cosplaying. I'm now 27 and happily married with two kids (who are the only ones who enjoy dressing up-my eldest is 4 and really wants a Mew Mew outfit!lol) and i've felt for years that i'm missing out on all the cosplay fun!!!! Im actually looking forward to Halloween as an excuse to dress up!

Help!!!

Hi Becky, I don't know how many of us there are..but yes there are cosplayers around this area.
I tend to cosplay and meet up mostly at cosplay events, Expo's, Cons etc, and do a lot of chatting making friends, sharing cosplay tips etc on the online forums. If you want to chat and generally make friends with other UK cosplayers then 'CosplayIsland' is a better place as a lot of us post more regularly there.

The next big cosplay events coming up are London Expo and Fuyucon both in October. Unmissable if you love to cosplay and meet with other cosplayers.
http://www.londonexpo.com/
http://www.fuyucon.org/
..but if you want to go in cosplay get sewing fast, cos you only have a few weeks left.

Oooh, another introduction! Hello, I'm NekoShuffle! I'm from Brighton, I haven't cosplayed yet, but I cant wait for MCM May 2010 which is gonna be really good and I hope to see a lot of you down there. I'm quite hyperactive, I have a lot of N-R-Geeee and I don't act my age much ^^;; I love meeting new people and cosplayers I've met at the past MCMs I've been too have been so friendly and awesome that I'd love to meet more of them and just generally have a great time!

Ok, well, I'm pretty certain I haven't introduced myself ... My name's Danielle, and I live around the High Wycombe area? Very close to Windsor? I'm 15 and I did my first cosplay for Expo just gone, I was Ami from Toradora ^^ I'm really looking forward to May Expo - I'd love to make cosplay friends but I'm very shy. I'll scamper up, ask for a photo (I tend to somehow manage to spot cosplayers in the middle of conversations, so I'll float around anxiously for a while), squee/durrhurr for a bit, then scurry off ;; Please, if you see me, start a conversation! I don't bite!

In May I'll be cosplaying either Belgium or Punk!Igiko depending on the weather - I hope I can meet up with other Hetalians there ^^

Long intro. Sorry about that.

Hi, Well, I'm new here and in the cosplay world also, I'm looking forward to 2010 con so I can be there as Photochooter, and maybe as cosplayer if I'm improved, well crossplayer to be specific.

Hi my name is Emily, i'm 17 and I live in the south east of Wales. (it's basically the valley area of abergavenny and such. Not a long train journey to Cardiff).

I've never done cosplaying before, nor been to a con. It's A)Because of my parents and B)I'm not excatly that well off so. =/ I'd love to cosplay and if given the chance i'd do an ANBU cosplay with the scrolls, shiny material, chains, cool mask and kimono fabric. I'd love that.

Although I have been invited to go to the bristol con next year so. =D

Yeah Hi to all the new people. ^_^

@ Emily - I hope you make it to the Bristol con and have a great time. Also hope you make some cosplay friends esp some near to where you live. Parents allways worry about our kids. We can't help it. But apart from that, if they know you will be safe they shouldn't mind you cosplaying, it is a really fun and creative thing to be involved in.

Best wishes, all. ^_^
