My MCM ComicCon Experience

MCM’s London Comic Con has been and gone in the blink of an eye and I had a fabulous time enjoying all the geeky goings on at the event.
It seemed super busy this year with the ExCell exhibition centre being packed out with cosplayers and nerdy fans alike. Even before I got to the event I was spotting people dressed as Harley and The Joker on the tube. It's always exciting arriving at comic con and the queues are never boring as you are continually entertained by spotting amazing cosplayers. For example near me in the entrance queue was a very tall Gandalf The Grey, a young Deadpool, Spinelli from Recess and a whole host of other characters from nerd culture. It was brilliant. I always am amazed by the quality of peoples cosplays and the time and effort they put into creating their outfits.

When I finally got inside the venue I couldn't decide what to see first as I was thoroughly spoilt for choice. I made my way around the art stalls where lots of extremely talented artists were exhibiting their geek themed work. There was so much amazing art to choose from. I bought these super cute cartoon Star Wars pictures that I fell in love with instantly.


I then weaved my way through the masses of exhibitors while admiring all of their geek themed merchandise. One thing I noticed is that MCM's London Comic Con now seems to cover a wider range of fandoms than ever before. Whether you're interested in anime, manga, sci-fi, fantasy, comics, games or anything else geeky, I'm pretty sure you would find something you enjoy at this awesome event.
MCM also provided fans with the opportunity to meet cast members of their favourite geeky films and shows. I decided not to pay to meet any of the celebrities at this event but I did spot Warwick Davis and Peter Davison as I passed by their stands.

There were so many cool things to see and do at this Comic Con so I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I even got to pose as a ghostbuster by a gargantuan Stay Puft Marshmallow Man statue. But I have to say my highlight of this Comic Con was definitely being a queen for a few moments as I sat on the famous Iron Throne!

Comic Con is such a wonderful way of celebrating nerd culture and I love it to bits. I had such a wonderful day exploring all there was to see and I can't wait till next time. If you've never been to an event like this, I highly recommend it.
