This weekend we went to the event “Memorabilia/MCM“, based in Birmingham in the NEC. It’s held twice a year in March and November.
Compared to similar events, it was really chilled, really comfortable. We only went for the one day, and dressed as Gorillaz, Plastic Beach era. Our Noodley friend was going to the event too so it was a good chance to get some group pictures (sadly our Russ couldn’t make it).
Charlie did my makeup for me today as he is trained in it, and could give me the later Murdoc appearance I would struggle at doing. In return I ironed. He got to try out new water liner for the costume too which was exciting.
We got a taxi to the train station and hopped on with JD and Coke in hand, noticing other cosplayers on the train too. I always think that is nice to see in such events, even if I don’t have a clue what they were wearing.
The con itself is £10 entry, and offers stalls, guests, talks and shows, much like London Expo (but a lot smaller and much less busier).
We got to see some old and lovely faces, and also meet some new ones.
And had many lovely people asking us for pictures! They are all floating about on the internet at the moment, if you see any feel free to give me a bell!
Also Foxy took us some group pictures, which was fantastic. These are in the editing process at the moment but if you are interested in seeing any of these, you will be able to find them most likely here or here.
We met two lovely ladies one of which sweetly gave us a postcard of her art, and her website can be found here.
After a while we ended up drinking cider at the bar. Then everything goes a bit fuzzy really. Ended up going home and drinking tea.
