Ended yesterday, the Mcm Comic Con London has taken place during the whole weekend, kicking off on Friday the 26th, at the Excel, blessed by the weather and summery temperatures.
It has been my first time at the event, thank to my boyfriend already a fan, who bought the tickets and took me there on Saturday: I absolutely loved it, I can’t wait for the next edition!
I had lot of fun taking pictures of cosplayers in their fantastic costumes!
Obviously one of the most popular costumes was Wonder Woman as the next movie is coming out on the 1st of June in the UK (for the release date in other countries, click here). The premier in Leicester Square in London has actually been cancelled after the terrible Manchester attack.
I would have expected a lot more of Star Wars fans around but this one, The Reggie Rasta Stormtrooper, was absolutely the best! 10/10 for creativity and effort!
Wonder Woman had her own section with interactive games, a Lego sculpture (by the way, you can buy the Wonder Woman Lego Set here), pop-art pieces and tons of gadgets on sales to pick from ( I got my Mopeez Wonder Woman for £3!)
Funko.com had actually massive stands selling Star Wars classics, Harry Potter, Five Nights at Freddy’s pieces and the Amazonian Wonder Woman Pop! (Hot Topic exclusive) on sale at £15. To be sure to be seen, they actually placed a massive Harry Potter not far away from the stand :)!
I was absolutely blown away to see Dave Prowse, the only and real Dart Vader, who got very unlucky with how things turned out on him during and after Star Wars but absolutely one of the best villains ever in the cinema history. (If you are curious to know more about his experience with the Star Wars cast and George Lucas Production Company, you definitely have to watch “I am your father”).
The best stands selling Entertainment Merchandise were actually Forbidden Planet, EMP, Mad Magic House and Funko but Pop Asia had the best selection covering pretty much everything related to Manga and Japanese Pop Culture.
