London Anime Con impressions

Last weekend I attended the London Anime & Gaming Con. It was a weekend full of manga, anime, games and cosplay! Compared to other major Japan related events in London, I would say this was a slightly smaller one. It was great for socialising and for self-published artists to make themselves known. Especially if you are a cosplayer, this was a great place to get to know and network with others.

I was really impressed by these next cosplayers who had made their entire costumes from scratch, including the accessories!

Sarah has been cosplaying has been cosplaying as Temari for a while and made that giant fan herself. She told me it had been quite difficult to make, as she had to make sure it could open up and operate. I think she did an amazing job!

Vincent sowed the entire robe himself and even made the sword.

I always find cosplaying really fascinating, and only wished I had the skills to make such costumes myself. But for now, I think I’ll stick to just photographing them 😉 For a few more pictures of the event, visit the Facebook album here!
